I love that embroidery is coming back in so many different ways. Mandalas to Embroider by Carina Envholdsen-Harris offers twelve large and twelve small patterns using just ten stitches!
What a wonderful way to learn – or teach – embroidery and the repetition in each mandala guarantees that you will actually LEARN the stitches. Can’t you picture an entire wall display of these delights? The book is due to arrive in February – just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Edyta Sitar’s newest book is scheduled for a November arrival – just in time for holiday open houses. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words and I just need to share the wealth! I just saw glimpses of the inside today.
Why not set up a display featuring the book, triangle papers, and of course, those beautiful blue fabrics!
I love these new patterns by Krista Moser of The Quilted Life. I was not familiar with her work but now will be a follower! She is one of those designers that span all age groups – and that is not easy! All of these patterns look totally different but are all created with the same ruler with an extra one needed for the Champagne and Pearls.
Swirly Girls also has a new pattern featuring our best selling triangle:
Why not start a series of classes showing all of the different ways to use this ruler? Patterns will be arriving soon….
Tis the season for evergreens – and this is reflected in our top 100 patterns! All of these trees made the list!
Crazy Christmas Trees from Cut Loose Press™ is the perfect family craft project! None of the seams have to match so seam allowances aren’t really an issue. I’m making this with my grandchildren this weekend!
These paper-pieced trees come in two sizes. The smaller version is the perfect door decoration for an Advent tree for your favorite little ones.
Piece Fall colors on the other side to make this tree reversible!
And then there are the three-dimensional versions by Aunties Two and Poorhouse Designs.
All of these projects are simple and can be done in time to deck the halls!
