NEW THIS WEEK - March 19th, 2008


April Showers

Free Project Instructions!

 

Spring is in the air, and April Showers will bring May Flowers to our lawns and gardens. New designs let you splash your way into warmer days with fashion and flair!

Animals Under Umbrellas are playing in the puddles and dancing in the rain. Each umbrella is designed to fit each animal's personality, a detail that little ones will love.

Beautifully detailed Jacobean tulips will bloom brightly on garments and linens. Large ovals are wonderful on pillows, jacket backs, and chair covers; thick and thin borders are magnificent on hems of shirts, skirts, and dresses.

Adorable Rubber Duckies have a variety of playful personas, including a golfer, gardener -- and an embroiderer! And, quick-stitching clouds, suns, and rainbows are delightful accents to children's wear.

These new designs are right as rain! Splish-splash your way down the page, and enjoy the new designs!

When bath time is over, capture tub toys and store them in the Bath Time Toy Bag!

April Showers and Flowers - Request of the Week

My heart leaps up when I behold

A rainbow in the sky ~ Williams Wordsworth

Wanting to capture the magical essence of rainbows onto a baby quilt, Deb T. requested designs depicting the colorful arcs. She says, "My mother passed away recently and my niece is going to
have a baby soon. I would love to make a baby quilt of rainbows as a remembrance quilt. My mother predicted a new great grandchild would be born after she was gone to carry on." What a wonderful way to honor the memory of your mother as well as welcome a new member into the family!  Thank you for the thoughtful suggestion, Deb!

Stitching for the Wee Ones

These designs are so sweet when stitched onto
baby clothing, like onesies and T-shirts. They're
simple and light, meaning that they'll stitch fast
onto garments.

They're also perfect for denim -- like little bib
overalls, jackets, and jeans. And even though
they're light, the coverage is great for terrycloth
towels for the children's bath.
