Christmas Angels is a new Christmas stitchery from The Birdhouse. It comes in a cute little bag tied up with a red ribbon. I think it would make a nice gift just like that. And the big bonus is - it's preprinted on calico. You know how I hate tracing - this one lets me off the hook.
The pattern also includes instructions for making the wallhanging as well. The stitchery size is approx 16" x 5" and the wallhanging is 9"x20".
The other new Christmas pattern is another Jennifer Knol design. (She's always doing something good.) It's the beautiful bag I showed you from the Candleberry Country Christmas stitching weekend that Caroline and I went to. The pattern is aptly titled Candleberry Christmas
Included is not only the bag, but also a large and a small swag featuring the angel applique. As usual, the fabrics Jennifer has selected just set the design off perfectly don't they? I have to confess that I still haven't finished mine yet, but seeing the pattern prompted me to get it out of the bag. See the buttonson the side? They are wooden buttons and are available from Candelberry Country.
I've just added some new blogs to my list - Abyquilt, Dutch Blue and Hanne Check them out, you will be inspired by their beautiful work. Also, for us in the southern hemisphere, it's quite strange seeing snow at Christmas. (visit Abyquilt and you'll see what I mean.)
Until next time
