There's always something new

Thrilled to receive in Melissa Shirley's Winter Table canvas and Guide.  Guide is written by Melissa Shirley and if you haven't taken a class with Melissa or seen one of her guides they are fun, different and easy to read.  Melissa has wonderful techniques that are playful and give interesting results without be overly complicated and requiring additional counting or compensating.

Cute seasonal birdhouses, can be framed or finished dimensional and hung on your wall.  Lovely colors and just the right amount of opportunity to try out some new stitches or techniques.  Both on 18 count.

For the cat lover one of several cat shaped stand ups by Melissa and the Cat in a Cat piece with stitch guide by Patt and Lee.  Guide is filled with all kinds of stitching and useful if you want to use up some of your stash.

For the traditional, Susan Robets recently introduced her 3D tree collection.  While the stitch guide picture shows red tree's the ones available are green (red can be ordered).  They're available in 5, 7 and 9" heights with the one featured being 9".  Amazing guide, terrific diagrams and I think will appeal more to those who enjoy counted work.  Guide is extensive and includes instructions for stitching each 8 sides differently.  Not up on the website yet please call or email if interested.
