Preview of New PatternsFriday, June 26, 2009
The new stocking patterns are at the printer. They will be shipped out to the distributor next week...so in 2 weeks the shops should have these.
June’s stockings celebrate family. The Double Wedding Ring quilt pattern is perfect for the Here Comes the Bride Stocking.We all know you don’t find babies under a cabbage leaf; the stork brings them! Stitch the New Arrival Stocking with the baby’s birth date and initials.The Honeysuckle Vine Stocking recalls the sweet aroma of a lazy summer day. Surprise someone with an extra treat and tuck a stocking into the bow as you wrap your gifts.
July’s stockings have a patriotic theme. Our beautiful Stars and Stripes wave proudly in the breeze in the Fourth of July Stocking.
The Bountiful Stars Stocking is a reflection of a traditional quilt pattern and will be a quick and easy project to stitch. All those stars remind us of fireworks that brilliantly light up the sky.
You’ll have a bouquet that will never wilt when you stitch our Summer Roses Stocking. This little project celebrates the lush blooms that grace our gardens.
Silvia from Italy sent a picture of her finished project and I thought you would like to see how she finished it. She wrote, "I love the Blackbird style. Thank you for the free pattern. I'm sending a picture even though the contest is over. Visit my blog to see more pictures."
She covered this box with fabric that she overdyed. It gives the box a great vintage look. I think Silvia needs to give us a class on covering a box with fabric!
Bindy from Dyeing to Stitch in Virginia Beach, VA sent this picture of their stocking tree. The sweet flowers inside each stocking are a nice added touch!
This stocking is also from Bindy. Great idea to make it into a necklace!
Until later dear friends!
