HOT off the press!

It's that time again...we're shipping new designs to shops this week. We've got stockings...small and large...little sleds and more inspiration coming your way. Here's the roundup!

#168 Flora McSample's 2014 Stockings 
They're back! Flora did a group of 3 tiny stockings last year, and they were super popular. Our sampler girl has been busy again, and this bunch is (in Flora's humble opinion) beautiful! These designs are quick-to-stitch, yet really charming little projects. Chartpak includes designs and embellishments for 3 stockings. Companion chart is #161 Flora McSample's 2013 Stockings.

 #169 Reindeer Stocking
Finally...another FULL-SIZE Christmas stocking! Our customers have been asking for years, and we've been slow to respond, but it's here now. Includes 2 large round buttons and 1 star button. Our Reindeer Stocking is a companion to #93 Santa Stocking, #99 Snowflake Express Stocking and #110 Angel Stocking. Stocking is stitched with DMC Perle cotton.

S116 Sled Dudes
We've designed 3 little sled ornaments, using the darling sleds from Foxwood Crossings. Our models are stitched on antique brown perforated paper and we added some embellishments. Super Snippet includes designs and embellishments for 3 little sleds. Super cute for ornaments for your tree or for gifting!

Inspiration Boxer 
Here's the second winner in our Inspiration Saying contest. Design has lots of sampler-y motifs, old-fashioned fonts and a much-requested saying. Boxer kit includes 32 ct. Lambswool linen, embellishments and bonus design. (Special thanks to Missy for being the first to submit this saying in our recent contest)

The boxes are packed and now we're busy putting mailing labels on everything. This pile is patiently waiting for labels. The finished ones are piling up on the other side of the office.

SPECIAL THANKS to all of you who left comments on this blog and on Facebook, responding to my previous post requesting "Little" kit ideas. The suggestions are great, and it's really nice to have your input! I'll get to work on more "Little" designs soon. 


  1. Beautiful new designs, I love all of them!

  2. Hey y'all! I hope y'all don't mind, but I like your design so much that I tweaked it for my niece's stocking. Mine isn't as nice as yours, but I did it entirely by hand. Thanks for the awesome blog! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/9288742957755544/

  3. Hello Lizzie Kate!
