Exciting New Stitches
With Thanksgiving only days away, that means that Christmas is even closer! My holiday stitching is in full swing, and I am trying to keep myself in check to make sure I don't plan more than I can do, which always happens. Ornaments are usually a big hit with friends and family, and there was no shortage of favorites in this year's Ornament Issue of Just CrossStitch. The 2013 issue is available now and features 76 ornaments from 76 fabulous designers! Here is a sampling of the ornaments in this year's issue, which is available here.
With my prep for the holidays also comes my yearly hunt for stitching-related gifts for friends. Some of my always-perfect, go-to gifts include embroidery scissors, since stitchers can never have too many pairs. One of my newest favorites is the Silver Leaf Handle Heirloom embroidery scissors, which can be found here. These 4-inch beauties feature a delicately sharp point, which is ideal for Hardanger and other cutwork, as well as trimming threads on the back of any project. The price is only $16.99, which makes this an ideal gift. Order yours today and beat the holiday rush!
