A Hint of Spring
|Maybe we no longer think of February, bitter February, Month of hope withheld and promise vain as Arthur Christopher Benson rather dismally described it. As we become more encapsulated by our home comforts we tend to forget how harsh the natural world can be.
Lanarte have released their new Spring Collection - in January! There's plenty there to raise your spirits in these cold, wet weeks, though ... more nature pictures from Marjolein Bastin and lots of stylish ladies (see image); and also some cartoon cats. We have them all on order and they should be with us next week.
Biancabella, a lovely lady based on an Italian fairy tale is the latest design by Mirabilia.
We'd also like to remind you that Mr Men and Little Miss kits by Bothy Threads are now no longer available to order so when the ones we have in stock are finished, we can obtain no more.
Ursula Michael has produced a few more «Let's ...» designs for Imaginating. These patterns take the form of shapes made out of related words and are very popular
Looking ahead to Easter, we now have in stock a larger cross shape in plastic canvas by Darice, measuring 5 by 8 inches which could be used to make a card or as a stitched bookmark.
We know next Christmas is a long way away but we have reduced lots of Christmas papercrafts to make way for new stock so check out our Bargain Basement. The dark days of "February, bitter February" might be a good time to make next year's cards leaving the Autumn free for larger projects.
With Spring approaching we are featuring kits with Apple and Cherry blossom which we hope will inspire you!
