Celebrate the Season

NEW THIS WEEK - September 26th, 2007


Celebrate the Seasons

Free Project Instructions!

 

Autumn is a lovely transition from summer to winter. We are blessed with weeks of warm, colorful days and chilly, sweater nights before Winter settles in to stay.  The transformation brings the excitement of change and adventures to come!  Halloween gives way to Thanksgiving, then Christmas. Falling leaves change to falling snowflakes. Instead of hiking, we are sledding, and drink cider and egg nog. Both Autumn and Winter are seasons to celebrate!

There is no shortage of gorgeous motifs that represent Fall and Winter.  This week�s design series is an offering of vividly colored leaves and harvest vegetation, as well as cool, icy snowflakes and brilliant poinsettias in a variety shapes and sizes. Also new this week is a series of Season of the Wolf designs, depicting stunningly detailed, stoic wolves against backgrounds of the four seasons.

Eight delicate lace designs, in Autumn and Winter styles, can be used as a stand-alone pieces or as additions to festive attire and home d�cor.  Drift down the page and celebrate the seasons!

Cuddle up and warm your toes with a toasty Winnie's Flannel Rag Quilt.
