Table Toppings and Threads

A little bit of what is new for us ... and maybe an idea for you if you're stumped on just what to bring to the holiday table this month!

We have this gorgeous pheasant motif mixed up with paisley - it makes a great table runner or bed runner, it is a long piece at 72 inches so would be festive on the back of the couch too. Of course, colors are always better in person, the sage green and rusty rose are perfect for fall decor and subtle enough to complement a holiday place setting.  We are cutting a few kits for this project - and of course, fabric is available by the yard if you're inspired to make a bigger project.

Moving into winter holidays, this little topper is created using charm squares from an online tutorial pattern...and would be equally fun in non-holiday themed fabrics, don't you think?  We're hoping to try the retro camper S'more Love fabric collection from Moda for an RV heading south for the winter!

And for added fun - we have the full collection of Cotton Petites in stock.  That means 80 colors of simple to use, ready to go floss.  Perfect for hand or machine work....

Happy Stitching!
