Weekends are better for blog browsing so I decided to announce the new line of designs coming to LHN today instead of waiting any longer! HOMETOWN HOLIDAY is a winter stitcher's playground of little buildings and scenes that you can make as dimensional objects or frame. But then use your creativity once you see the designs and you decide how you wish to feature them.
This isn't a series like the sheep virtues or the three years of ornaments. . . . . this is a permanent addition to the Little House line of patterns which means it doesn't have an end until I simply decide I won't design any more. I can't see that happening any time soon!
OK. . . .so the first one is called MY HOUSE. It's a house (of course) and has an area for personalizing the design. We've provided the alphabet. As you will see in a few weeks time, the design was made into a stand-up cube using general craft foam. I will be providing an online tutorial on the LHN web site for finishing. It is sooooo easy! Easier actually than all of the steps needed to finish the wool pillows for the sheep! And there is NO sewing so anyone can do this. This design will ship mid-February.
The second design is called MAIN STREET STATION. See where this is going? We're building a little town, one design at a time in cross stitches.
The things you need to know . . . . . we won't publish in this line every month. There will be gaps. The second thing you need to know is that I do not recommend this for whole cloth stitching at this time. Maybe a year down the road you could place some of the designs together and create your own scene but not at this time. I am designing randomly to create this little town so pieces will be coming out here and there and may not "fit" together on one cloth.
I hope you will enjoy this new line of designs. I am having a wonderful time designing and stitching them!
We are shipping the first sheep this week along with another full sized design. We'll post photos of the other design soon!
