christmas party

Happy Advent from Shepherd's Bush!

Here we are all decked out for the festive season. Our tree is pretty great I have to say, and when you come in the shop, it just smells wonderful.

Well, I promised to post our new things so here we go. You will see that we have been busy, and I hope you like what we have come up with. We had a blast doing them, so I hope you will have fun as well. Happy perusing....

Christmas Wishes
This darling kit is worked on 28 count Desert Sand linen with DMC and WDW over dyed floss. It is quick to stitch and is finished with little holly berry buttons. And...each kit comes packaged in a truly adorable little canvas stocking ornament complete with jingle bells. (Don't you just love Jill's fabulous mat?)

Hear Bells
This is our newest little box kit. It is stitched on 32 count dusty blue linen and is worked with a variety of silk and cotton over dyed threads. It is very easy to finish in the little box and would certainly make a great gift for anyone.

Good Cheer Pin Cushion
This sweet pin cushion is worked on 32 count vintage dyed linen. The kit includes lovely silk threads as well as WDW over dyed floss, a beautiful hand dyed silk ribbon and ruby beads. It was such a fun piece to stitch, that I would sort of like to do it again.

Christmas Joys
Teri's newest 9-pane pillow is super sweet. It depicts the iconic picture of Christmas Eve with a cozy mantel and cheerful stockings hanging in readiness. It uses a variety of over dyed cotton floss and features a wonderful stocking button hand crafted by Cecile from the Button Company. I promise that you will love it.

Stocking Button

Merry Wishes
This newest 10 count kit celebrates not only the merry season, but also the long-awaited return of sand Tula. Yippee!!! Each kit comes with beautiful 10- count Tula fabric, DMC and over dyed threads, and a cheerful heart and star button. A perfect fast project.

Behold Sheep
Our newest sheep with hats kit shows a sweet sheep looking down on the tiny city of Bethlehem. This kit includes 32 count Willow Green linen, silk threads, and a very fun halo button made by our friend Diane. I hope you love it.

Here are a group of new pillows from Prairie Schooler. The one in the back is the 2011 Santa (closeup shown below.) Teri has had it stitched on 7 count Klostern using #3 WDW Perle Cotton and added an amazing assortment of buttons. It is fabulous!
The 3 pillows in the front are from Christmas Favorites, and the pillow stitched in black is from Santa's Night. We have tweaked the colors to make them all go together, and we have sets of the backing fabrics tied up with ribbons so that yours can look just like ours.

One last thing is this splendid assortment of Christmas scissors. We have loved the larger scissors for the past few years and were totally delighted to see the little ones added for this year. They are all great cutters and the little ones will be perfect to add to your Christmas project or to tuck into stockings or gifts.
Big scissors--$5.00
Little scissors--$3.00
Happy shopping and give us a call if you want us to wrap up a care package for you. fondly, Tina

PS. The casserole was NOT burned, it was very delicious....Tina was exaggerating- Happy cooking- Teri
