Holiday Stitching!


Hello everyone,

With school holidays just around the corner, many of us we will be celebrating the festive season away from home on holidays. This may mean you are away from your sewing machine, or perhaps you are lucky enough to bring along your sewing machine wherever you go. I know I do!! Whatever the case, we have the perfect projects to accommodate for your holiday stitching!

Kits are a perfect holiday purchase, that come with all the instructions, fabrics and buttons you will need to finish off your project! All you need to add is some embroidery threads and your sewing supplies! I wanted to share with you all, some of my favourite kits that will be perfect to do anywhere and anytime this holiday season!

It's Summer in the garden, the flowers are in bloom and the orange tree is full of fruit just waiting to be picked. Felix the cat is having a lazy afternoon sleeping in the sun. With a combination of simple applique and stitchery, this pillow is so much fun to stitch! The Orange Tree kit includes the full colour pattern, the hand painted wheelbarrow button and a variety of Lynette Anderson's fabrics to make this cushion.

Just add some embroidery threads, toy fill and general sewing supplies and you have the perfect holiday stitching project.
Pillow size approx. 17" square


This is another project that I just love! Home Family and Friends... has the sweetest little appliqued and embroidered scenes, and is surrounded by a piano key border. Within this pattern you also get the templates for both the cat and dog version. This kit contains the colour pattern, fabrics to the make the mini quilt and the binding fabric. Please note that fabrics may vary to the original photo however all fabrics are chosen by Lynette.

All you will need to finish off this kit is the embroidery threads, batting and backing and genereal sewing supplies. We also have the threads available separately (Lynette has used Valdani #O120 Stormy Sky, #O31 Tealish Blue, #O514 Wheat Husk, #O196 Muddy Bark, #O511 Black Sea, #P10 Antique Violet, #O548 Blackened Khaki Brown, #O39 Forest Green, O78 Aged Wine & P5 Tarnished Gold)and are all available online.

Approx. finished size 11” x 20” (28cm x 51cm)

Out of all the projects I have shown you today, the Annie's Cottage Pillow has to be my favourite! Tucked between the tree’s, this little cottage is perched high on the hill where it can enjoy the view of the meadows below. Lynette has combined some sweet embroidery with applique and had fun doing some tiny 1/2” half square triangles which are done on foundation papers. A folded trim sets adds extra dimension to the finished pillow.

This kit contains the pattern and all the fabric required to make this sweet pillow.

Finished size approx. 9” x 16”

I know how busy it can get as the year draws to an end... I find myself writing lots of lists and reminders of things I need to get done! Something I find myself using everyday is Lynette's Christmas To Do List. This is available as a 'free to use' download product and you too can get organised by following this link.


Just a reminder that our opening hours will change over the Christmas period.
We will be closed from the 22nd December until the 2nd of January. All orders placed before the 22nd of December will be processed and shipped out on the 22nd of December.
