Christmas Open House

 Here are some of the new fabrics from "Shabby Chic" that co-ordinate with the linens that arrived a few weeks back
 Just a sneak preview of SPRING!
 And now, back to Christmas!  Tomorrow is the first day of Folktales Christmas Open House, and here are a few pictures of some of the new samples...
 Buttermilk Basin's December sheep Blanket...and their table mats for December and January...
  Mary King made the blankets for the sheep.  Nice work, Mary!
 The Santa head Ornies Pattern will be given to everyone attending the Open House.
 A new stitchery...
from "Christmas in the Coop"
... a new snowman
from Country Friends
 A dishtowel from the new book
  "Christmas in the Coop"
 A doorknob hanger from Lynda Hall's new book "Deck the Halls"

Reminds me of a very special weekend in Paris...

 This is a "no sew" star garland from Sandy Gervais.

 And this is "Slim, the Snowman"  from the Winter issue of the magazine, " Primitive Quilts and Projects".  The complete kit is $25.00.
 This table runner is adapted from Blackberry Roads "Snowflake" pattern  and the picture below shows several projects including Lilyanna Stitches' Snow", Buttermilk Basin's February candle mat and In Sew Many Words' "Silent Night".
 And this is one of Lilyanna Stitches newest patterns.  I Love it!
There are lots of new samples, patterns, books and kits to choose from, as well as hot apple cider and goodies to nibble on while you browse.  Sure hope you get a chance to stop in!
