Easter is almost here, and we hope you have some stitching time planned....
after all it is not just about chocolates and family get togethers is it?
These projects can all be found in Lynette's book 'Stitch It For Spring'.
Mr Rabbit button and the Busy Bee buttons
This is just one in the series of Spring Ornaments, each little pattern comes
with a raw wood button. Stitch one or the whole set the choice is yours.
A couple of weeks ago following Lynettes visit to Japan
a huge delivery of Japanese yarn dye fabrics arrived. There are some gorgeous
new pretty colours to spice up the greens, neutrals and taupes we love.
We have all our yarn dyes available on the bolt or as pre-cuts.
Have you been keeping up to date with Lynette on her Facebook page?
If you have, you will have seem some sneaky pictures of her
Little Donkey project as it progressed?
Did you spot the yellow aeroplane travel scissors Also great for using
when stitching in the car.
As you can see Lynette has used a lovely variety of the Japanese yarn
dyes (approx. 50 different) for this project, so we have made some yarn dye
fabric packs to get you started.
fat 1/4 bundles or fat 1/8 bundles.
This sweet Little Donkey Zippered Pouch is just too cute now
its finished. The pattern has been written,
checked and printed today.
Lynette used almost 200 x 3/8" hexagons, combined them with the
sweetest embroidery of a little donkey pulling a gypsy caravan.
Our lovely bag batting keeps the pouch firm but not floppy,
a zip keeps the pouch closed, ensuring you will never lose your
precious belongings. The addition of D rings on the side not only look good
but mean you can easily add a strap or chain if you
prefer to make it into a bag.
Favourite needles for the sewing machine - back in stock.
Little House Block Book
Keep your blocks safe and out of harms way (in my case Ellie dog
who chews everything she can find!) in this 18" block book.
This design also looks good made into a pillow if a block book isn't your style.
The block book has been made using fabrics from Lynette's
'Follow My Heart' fabric collection, we have 2 fat quarter bundles available
at a discounted price to clear.
