NEW THIS WEEK - May 3rd, 2006:
So when the occasional spring shower drops in to dampen the day and
nurture your May flowers, just remember that this is a great time to sew up
some hot fashions and delightful decorating items for your upcoming summer
Start with lace! The designs this week feature new and refreshing
fruit patterns in freestanding lace to sew for trivets, centerpieces, and
coasters. Make a matching gift set or mix the fruit coasters so everyone can
identify their own.
Summertime...when the livin' (and cookin') is easy. Keep the kitchen
cool by taking the cooking to the patio grill on hot days. And outfit the cook
with apron designs suitable for many a personality -- from the "Grill
Sergeant" and "Grill Mistress" to the cartoon humor of
"Plays with Fire" and "All Fired Up." Many more will
delight and entertain.
Fresh garden vegetables -- peppers, mushrooms, cucumbers, corn --
colorfully framed in checkers and stars are ready to sew on baskets and totes
for those trips to the garden or farmers' market. Perfect, too, for Fourth of
July and mid-summer picnics.
Get ready for a sizzling summer of backyard barbecues, and
enjoy sewing the designs!
Fruits of Lace
New, refreshing fruit designs in freestanding embroidered lace add
a delicate touch to all your
summer entertaining. Use the round designs to create colorful and elegant
coasters. The lace
"wedges" can be sewn together to make a centerpiece or trivet. Nine
"wedges" make a circle.
