NEW THIS WEEK - March 1st, 2006:
Spring Fever Fun with Flowers
With embroidery skills, we can stay at home and soon have our homes
blossoming with spring bouquets, brightening up each lengthening day.

Freestanding lace flowers
will hang beautifully in a sunny window or add delightful character to linens.
Lacy spring flowers -- tulip, lilac, iris, pansy, bluebells, daffodil -- hint
of warm, sunny breezes. Lace roses, a daisy, sunflower, hibiscus, and calla and
tiger lilies remind us that gardens of flowers will soon be blooming on every
corner in the neighborhood.
With freestanding lace bookmark designs in floral patterns, you can add to your
own collection -- or gift cache -- with everyone's favorites. These pretty
markers will be stylish right into summer and are perfect for holding your

For a change of pace, go from lace to applique designs. Select a
single blossom or make a bouquet of tulips, daffodils, calla lilies, daisies,
morning glories, sunflowers, irises, hibiscus, and many more.
Coordinated floral design
packs will put spring in your steps all over the house. Design elements feature
popular flowers in bouquets and vases, bending around corners, marching in
borders, and bursting with buds, ready to fill every room with a bloom.
Matching designs featuring tulips, lilies, hibiscus, and pansies are so
versatile for embellishing clothing, table linens, as well as bed and bath.
So, if you're "as
restless as a willow, or jumpy as a puppet on a string," put your
"Spring Fever" to work, sew, and enjoy this week's designs.
Spring Flowers in Lace
In delicate freestanding embroidery, these spring and summer floral designs
generate cheerful inspiration when hung in a sunny window. Embroider the design
onto a piece of water-soluble stabilizer, then wash away. The result is
beautiful freestanding lace, ready to give your home a fresh spring touch! Or,
if you prefer, sew the lace pieces directly on organza for sun catchers or
curtains. And, floral lace is fabulous grouped along hems or as trims for
linens and dresses.
