New Sampler Charts

The days between Christmas and back to work can be an oasis of relaxation but they can also feel a little flat after all the festivities. Hopefully our great new cross stitch sampler charts will inspire you to use the time to put some of your craft skills into action, or tempt you to take advantage of our sales.
I really love the Blackbird Sampler designs especially the small pincushion projects. I've just received about twenty new charts to delve into and they are now all available at
Look under Embroidery Linens and Wool for cross stitch charts, Sajou alphabets and wonderful linens to work on.

Merry Christmas

A very big Thank You for all your support during 2011. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a bright New Year.
I always feel December is the beginning of a new year for me as all my work has finished and there's room in my head for all the new ideas to come forward and express themselves. It's quite hard to choose where to start as there are sooo many styles of embroidery that I love. Will I do the wool designs or will I start on the crazy patchwork! Maybe both at once! I hope you have time to stitch too.
It's going to be a great New Year!
