Just around the corner!

Wow - how did we get to December already?  I kind of feel like it should be about mid-November in terms of what is still on my list of things to do.  If you are ahead of schedule, or have some time for last minute items for your own decorating, or as gifts to give - we have some fun projects. 

The placemat and table runner option - Fundamentally Fun pattern works so well with large scale prints that we'll be featuring this project for every season I think. 

Of course Holiday pillowcases are easy and the perfect size for everyone, but these pillows add some fun and festivity to your house.  These are iron-on shapes - and have a fuzzy soft finish, like velveteen without the thickness.  We put the snowflake on the textured essex sparkly cotton linen canvas for some glitz - and this could easily take you through winter, not just the Christmas season. 

And of course - we have key fobs and zipper pouches and grocery/shopping bags with fabric choices galore so you can personalize your project for just about everyone and it's almost as easy to stitch up two (one to keep right?!) at a time so stop by for some inspiration and project fixin's!
