Adorable spring projects


As a reminder -- we will be closed next week (March 21-31) for spring break.  We have a lot to share this week so we will jump right in with both feet.

The "Forest Friends Pincushion" is absolutely adorable.  It includes several of our favorite wool applique animals.  It finishes 6" x 6" x 2" so could also double as a small pillow or bowl filler.  Your $14.95 kit includes the pattern, background cotton, wool for applique, button and backing fabric.  
The next two pincushions are both found in the same pattern, Buttons and Bows.  In fact, the pattern contains instructions for 6 bowl fillers or pincushions.  
We chose our two favorites and have made kits which include the pattern, background fabrics, wool for applique, buttons for eyes and the adorable ribbon for the bunny's collar.  Kits will make the bunny and the little lamb pillow shown below.  $22.95.  

The bunny finishes 6 1/2" x 6" and the lamb finishes 7" x 5 1/2".  

If you'd prefer to use your own supplies, the pattern is available for $12. 
We have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Lisa Bongean's newest book, 101 Itty Bitty Celebrations.  Each finishes 2" so are the perfect opportunity to use wool scraps.  Each project is photographed full size which shows great detail.  If you don't have a wool stash and would like us to put together kits for you, e-mail us a list of the itty bitty projects you want to make and we will make kits for you.  

64 pages $22
........just when we thought we couldn't take any more cute small projects Kathy Schmitz released her book, Tiny Treasures.  These are embroidered projects which finish at 1 1/2".  Of course, you could easily modify and add some wool or cotton to each one.  The book includes patterns for 72 miniature embroidery designs, a pattern for a 16" x 20" framed piece using 65 of the designs, a full color thread and stitching guide.  $16.99
The last item we want to share this week is the newest issue of Punch Needle and Primitive Stitcher.  It's filled with 21 projects -- all for only $9.99.  
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring a set of 7 skeins of Valdani floss.  Each skein is 6 ply and contains 10 yards floss.  $23.95 per set

We have only two sets so don't delay in emailing to reserve a set.   
We hope to see you when we reopen April 1.
