NEW THIS WEEK - November 26th, 2008


Dreaming of a White Christmas

Free Project Instructions!

 

By now, we're all dreaming of a white Christmas. The weather is getting chillier and Thanksgiving is officially kicking off the season of holidays and hospitality. No matter what climate you live in, the first snowfall is one of those classic images of Christmas.

 

At Embroidery Library, this week's positively a flurry. Many of the new designs have a Victorian twist, like the sparkling silhouettes and quick-stitch etchings. True to the snowy theme, a "Dreaming of a White Christmas" design with accent snowflakes to match is perfect for the front of a cozy sweatshirt.

 

Since you've let us know you're in love with lace, we've created several new designs for your holiday decorating: a batch of creative icicle ornaments and a new Victorian angel tree topper.

 

Enjoy looking through this week's designs, and let it snow!

The Light and Lacy Icicles along with the Victorian Lace Angel tree topper add a splendid touch to holiday decor.
