New Patterns!

This little bluebird is "Singing the Blues" in one of our newest releases.  I had it stitched in Belle Soie from Crescent Colours and the silk just pops off of the fabric.  Mom had a lot of fun shading the design with the silk. She found it to be an enjoyable challenge to place the dark and light colors here and there on the bird as she went along. 
Notice the swirls on the frame?  A perfect match to the song he is singing!  It's from Crescent Colours also.
"Liberty Belles" is a wonderful Americana project you can finish on the go.  If you don't sew, have your shop owner contact Impie, Hattie and Bea to order the little pillow for your finish.  If you live outside the U.S., remove the flags and you have a design that works wherever you live!  I love the little "belles"!
And last but not least is the newest ornament, "Frosty Flakes".  You have probably already seen him on the sidebar where I snuck him in a week or so ago.  I L-O-V-E the fabric he is stitched on and it has become one of my favorites.  It's Straw linen from Weeks Dye Works and white threads contrast really well with it.

The three new patterns featured above will begin the cross country journey tomorrow to our distributors.  So that's all for now. . . . . . we have an original girl's sampler releasing next month along with a pines/cabin design. Our ornament that releases at the same time is "Peppermint Twist" and will be a lot of fun to stitch.
