Holiday gift ideas

If you're like us, it's hard to believe Thanksgiving is next week.  It seems like just a few months since we were thinking about what we wanted to accomplish in 2019.  We have a lot to share this week, so will jump right in with lots to tempt you.

Do you struggle with keeping your seam allowances the same width?  This problem plagues both quilters who rely on the 1/4" seam allowance as well as those who make garments and use the 5/8" seam allowance.  A stiletto may be the solution to all your seam allowance problems.  The stiletto acts as a 3rd hand and helps guide the fabric through the feed dogs.

This may be the perfect gift for all your stitching and sewing of all each stiletto is hand made by a real person in Oklahoma.  When ordering, please refer to the number.  Each is $14.95

So.....will your lucky pal get the darling angel (#1), the innocent looking bunny (#4), the silly goat (#7), the mischievous black kitty (#9), the elegant heart (#11), or the foxy fox (#14)?
While the patchwork is easy on the next piece we want to share, a stiletto will help keep seams straight.  Your "All Hearts" kit includes the pattern (with our changes), fabrics for the quilt top, wool for applique, borders, binding and the darling handpainted reindeer button.  It finishes 15 1/4" x 15 1/4".  Kit is $24.95.

Since we know several will ask, we do not have any extra reindeer buttons available. 
Our version of "Christmas Night" finishes 20 1/2" x 24".  The designer finished hers in a frame but we wanted a less formal look for ours so finished it as a wall hanging.  Our background fabric is a pretty Grunge fabric from Moda.

Your $22.95 kit includes the pattern with full size templates, fabrics for the top and binding.  When you order, let us know if we can put together a thread kit for you.  We used Valdani perle cotton size 12 and love how it looks.  
We had a lot of fun making the next piece.  The designer finished hers as pillows but we wanted something to hang on the wall or on the back of a door so finished ours as a 24" x 24" wall hanging.

Your "ABC Santa" kit includes the out of print pattern with our changes, fabrics for the top, wool for applique, borders and binding.  Kit is $39.95
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring "Angels Gather Here".  As you can see, we finished ours as a pillow but it would be equally cute finished as a wall hanging.  Your $21.95 kit includes the patterns with our changes, fabrics for the top and backing fabric.  We finished ours to fit an 18" x 18" pillow form. 
See you soon!
