Christmas is half a year away, so don't panic when you see Woodland Creatures
are a charming new series of cartoon wild animals produced by Heritage Crafts from the artwork of Karen Carter
. So far we have mouse
have introduced a new Flower Panel by John Clayton
- the first in several years! cute animals and couples under umbrellas
. Each kit has sepia or colour variants.
is a Greek company who produce quality printed canvas for needlepoint. The first design to come in is a picture of a Iris in Iris
and uses a mixture of blackwork and cross stitch. If you haven't tried blackwork before, this is a chance for you to have a go!
The Bargain Basement
has a selection of end-of-line kits
over the next two months. Don't hesitate if you see one (or two!) you'd like because we can no longer get them in. Another reason to buy now is that the Pound Sterling is in the doldrums which makes these quality kits especially great value if you're a non-UK stitcher. Prices will go up as the Pound recovers against other currencies.
and Finally ...
«If there is a limit to all things and a measure
And a last time and nothing more and forgetfulness,
Who will tell us to whom in this house
We without knowing it have said farewell?
by Jose Luis Borges (1899-1986)
A rather sombre message from the great Argentinian writer which captures our mood at the moment!
On a brighter note, we hope you have a great July whether it's the middle of summer or the middle of winter.
