Small Business Saturday

Happy Small Business Saturday, All!

We hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and restful and full of great food. The fact that Thanksgiving is already in our rear view mirror means we're coming up on Christmas fast, so here are some ideas for quicker stitches, and some holiday delights.

Cute small design from JBW, "O Christmas Tree." Finish it any way you wish--wrap up a nice pillow with some fabric and ribbon stash you have on hand.

"Just Cross Stitch"--December 2016 issue. And we have a few years of the special Christmas ornament issue on hand for a quick ornament stitch.

Sadly, this is the last issue of "Cross Stitch and Needlework." This final issue includes some wonderful, large project from years past:

The three-part Amish life project.

And the much sought-after "Santa's List."

Not really Christmas, but I couldn't resist these two, and I know they'll be much-appreciated little gifts. By Stacy Nash, "Redbud Cottage Pinkeep" and...

..."House on Pumpkin Hill Pinkeep." We have lots of fun JABCO pins in the shop. Stitch up one of this little pillows and gift it to a friend with pins. Or attach an In Stitches Gift Card to a little pocket you sew on the back.

"Merry Christmas Pillow" by Little House Needleworks.

Six adorable Christmas ornaments from Cuore e Batticuore.

A little larger, but still not huge: a wonderful graphic "Christmas Ornament 2016" by Alessandra Adelaide

"Piney Woods" Tray and Pinkeep by Chessie & Me. The tray insert is quite petite: stitch count is 64x92.

"Wood and Flax" by Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle and Thread.

Three by Madame Chantilly: "Gloria,"

"Christmas Scooter,"

and "Christmas in the Forest."

And last but not least, an adorable Christmas ornament/pin pillow by Little House Needleworks, "LMN," part of the ABC Samplers series.  Would you like to stitch a little sampler that doesn't take months?  Here it is!
