Our clocks went 'back' last weekend and we've still to adjust to our new time zone after a week. Like most countries we go through this palaver twice a year. Couldn't we all just go to bed later instead?
For Needlecrafters ...
We have two lovely new ladies from Riolis' Premium Collection
, a mother and daughter wearing daisy chains.
Also new from Riolis this month are two very unusual and modern designs Vervaco's Autumn Collection
has new and colourful Disney designs, sweet sepia cherubs and two attractive pictures of the Holy Family, one in sepia and the other Mother and Child with lamb. We also have two romantic pictures of couples in 30s style and the other sort of 'lovebirds' blue birds in a cage.
Nostalgic for summer already? Heritage Crafts
have produced two new cross-stitch kits from the artwork of John Clayton
. The cricketing theme features Woodland Babies
featuring a birth sampler and an afghan of cartoon forest creatures.
Permin of Copenhagen
have just hiked the cost of their Copenhagen
range of brass bell pull hangers. We will hold the price of existing stock but unfortunately the replacement hangers will be significantly more expensive. Single brass bell pull hangers and Heart of Brass hangers are now no longer available to order although we still have a few in stock.
And for Papercrafters ...
New to our papercrafts section is the our papercraft blog

in many different styles and even colours from single flowers to bouquets to landscapes to ladies with flowers.
