We now have in stock the latest in the Wildlife series by Rose Swalwell of Derwentwater Designs. Badger is a combination of cross stitch and coloured blackwork and is the ninth in the series.
Coloris is a brand new set of stranded cottons from DMC. Each skein has four alternating colours. The Christmas floss in red, greens and whites, the American in red, blues and silver the effects are captivating.
To get you started, we're enclosing a free pattern with each purchase of Coloris threads (while the patterns last).
Home for the Holidays by Blackbird Designs is a 40 page booklet of cross stitch for Christmas with mini stockings, pincushions and samplers with lots of ideas for using them. Tender Hearts Series is a new collection of sweet little pincushions in Blackbird's style.
This Month's Free Pattern
Last month we had St Patrick's Day and to mark the occasion Anne designed a Celtic Knot Shamrock pattern. The three-leaf shamrock is related in Irish tradition to the Holy Trinity. This pattern is free for you to download for the month of April.
We've had a spring clean in the Bargain Basement. It's still Buy One Get One Free like last month but a whole new set of kits. We hope that you'll find something in there to take your fancy.
And Finally ...
We read a report that US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump had said the Scots should build a wall to keep out the English as too many of them were moving north. It turned out to be an April Fool's joke. It did catch us out however as Mr Trump is known for his fondness for wall-building.
We think there are enough walls in the world already and so we are happy to see Hadrian's Wall (the one between England and Scotland) remain the ruin it has been since Roman times.

Important - Please Read This! (Latest update 23rd May 2020)
We know how much your crafts matter to you and so we are continuing to work for as long as we can.
The delivery services have been inundated with online purchases and this has led to backlogs of international mail ("It's like two Christmasses at once!").
We are of course wholly dependent on the delivery services and the delays are highly variable - some international (non-UK) packages have taken 2 months to arrive and some have arrived in normal time.
So we ask for your continuing patience in waiting for your package to arrive.
Deliveries to almost all countries are continuing but please visit this page and check your country's status.
We hope you are safe and comfortable and able to enjoy your stitching in these difficult times.
