Happy Holidays, all! Here is a little snapshot of the action at In Stitches today. We are having a wonderful sale, and some of these ladies took advantage of the 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. "little extra" (today only) by wearing their pajamas.
There were lots of new enticing things in the shop, including this book, "Lovely Letters." What a great idea for gussying up beautiful hand towels, pillow cases (I'm thinking June weddings) or just framing a gorgeous initial.
From inside the book:
Another beautiful example.
A small, very colorful Williamsburg sampler from Giulia Punti Antichi:
And look at the wonderful buttons that come in the package! Everyone who sees them remarks on their large size. You don't need to stitch the couple.

From Barbara Ana Designs, "Elizabeth Wise." A nice antidote to Christmas red and green.
Although Barbara Ana has designed a cute ornament to start for next year.
From Cherished Stitches, "Thy Needle and Thy Book."
I may have shown you this before. Maybe Christmasy. Or not.
Here's what comes in the kit--everything you need except time. You have to make that yourself.
Do you like bright band samplers? This will do it! By Sampler Cove.
"Winter Fun" for your tree.
Delicate and lovely "Alpine Garden" by Drawn Thread.
This is a shop model--not sure which designer. If you call the shop (703-360-4600), they can tell you how to get your hands on one.
We have lots of new Scarlet Letter charts in the shop. Here, "The Four Angels Mourning Sampler."
Last, but not least, by Alessandra Adelaide.
