Welcome to August - the month of Leo
. Leos are apparently enthusiatic, creative and generous; Virgos are conscientious and reliable. Of course, a stitcher needs all these personality traits - as well as a good deal of patience!
We have a new series of kits from Design Works
- Grand Ball
with an elegant room full of ladies in pink gowns and gentlemen in tailcoats. The kit by Heritage Crafts is available in 28 count evenweave and 14 count Aida.
A pretty little mobile complete conversion chart is now available to download free
for your convenience. As always it is best not to rely completely on these charts but only to use them as a guide. Working in good light, your eyes are the best tools for choosing equivalent colours.
This month we're featuring teddy bears in Patterns
. Many of course are for baby but there are one or two surprises. There are also some interesting ideas in a few of our pre-owned books.
We hope your August turns out to be creative and generous - but mainly we hope it turns out to be sunny
