Hello, everybody! We're moving rapidly into fall, and here are some new fall/Halloween patterns (with a Christmas stitch thrown in). We're also going to show you a few older fall charts we have in stock--some were new to me, even though I know they were from last year's market (or perhaps the year before?)
One of my new shop favorites is this wonderful book by Notforgotten Farm. The cover shows a few of the projects contained inside:
And here's a close-up of one of them. I certainly want to stitch this (and others just as wonderful) from the book.
Jardin Prive's "Patchwork Halloween."
JBW Designs has a few different sets of holiday wreaths.
Blue Ribbon Designs' "Through the Trees."
"October Comes" by Shepherd's Bush. We have the fun fabric that you see on the middle pillow in the bottom row.
Not new, but no less appealing: Cherished Stitches' "A Quaker Halloween."
I opened the Shepherd's Bush kit to show you the contents of "Garden Spells." Gorgeous hand-dyed fabric, lots of silks, adorable buttons, and a nice clear photograph all come in the kit.
Prim and Precious: (also not new): "Witch Pumpkin?" by With They Needle and Thread.
I can't remember if this is new--it's certainly new to me: "Il Etait une Fois Halloween" by Dessin.
"Cats and Pumpkins" by Erica Michaels.
Prairie Schooler's "Trick or Treat."
Not new, but lots of fun nonetheless: Silver Creek Sampler: "Halloween Bright."
We still carry this booklet by Blackbird Designs: (Trix or Treat)
Here's one of the dear patterns--what a perfect pin pillow it would make.
Last but not least, the three-part mystery sampler (a mystery no more, but so worth stitching), "Song of the Seasons" by Little House Needleworks. This is our shop model, awaiting framing.
Check back in a few days and we'll show you some more new, not-new and notables!
