NEW THIS WEEK - June 26th 2013
Bring the beauty of the great outdoors to your home with new field, forest, lake, and stream designs!

New animal shields feature deer, wolf, moose, and bear in the forest and mountains, surrounded by a decorative border. All are natural wonders on jacket backs, pillow shams, and wall hangings.

Vintage quick-stitching flowers are light and lovely, with shades of color blending beautifully to add color and charm in a low number of stitches.

Whimsical birds perch among blooming flowers, chirping summer songs in sweet tweet squares.  Freshwater fish sketches, along with a variety of fishing quips and quotes, will hook your favorite fisherman or woman.
Bobbers and lures add a clever touch to this fishy wall hanging! Click here for free project instructions!
