Sweets for the sweet!

Vanilla and Chocolate. . . . .is there a better combination?  Well maybe. . . . . how about a little strawberry added in?  Valentines Day is next month so we've released a sweet design to treat yourself to.  

Vanilla and Chocolate

Mary Kathryn (of Impie, Hattie and Bea) and I collaborated on the finish to provide you with a new and wonderful way to store your working stitching threads.  Stitch the design and sew it to the outside cover of the "Thread Armoire".  Your hand dyed threads attach beautifully to the rings inside and lay perfectly smooth.  She has even provided a place to park your needle.  This is such a practical way to store your current stitching threads.  I'm already using mine and I love it!

I neglected to post a photo of the new Hoffman Exclusive kit that was released right after the first of the year.  The sheep are monopolizing my time!  So here it is. . . . ."Birdhouse Alphabet."  Along with the chart you get the silk (Belle Soie) and buttons.  Aren't those buttons adorable????  I think the corners on the frame are a perfect match!  

So the web site is updated with supplies for the above charts and also, for the second sheep, Love.  And, because you asked, there are a few added details on the newly created link for the Hometown Holiday line.  You can find the link under the "Cross Stitch Charts" tab.

Happy Stitching,
