It's that time of year again -- get out the shovels and mittens, because it's snow season! If you're not covered in snow by now, you're surely hearing about it from your northern neighbors. Celebrate the chilly season with these warm and wonderful designs!

 

Three new sets of snowflake designs will add a unique and beautiful sparkle to you seasonal stitching. Symbolic snowflakes re-use familiar images as elements of unexpected snowflake designs. Sashiko snowflakes bring the beauty of this traditional Japanese embroidery form to your winter work. And lacy-looking snowflake designs with subtle color changes will help you make lovely, dimensional stitching projects.

 

And while it's snowing, don't forget to stitch a snowman! A group of snowman medley designs, perfect for throw pillows or wall hangings, are accompanied by a quick and cheery set of days-of-the-week redwork snowmen designs. They'll both make great holiday gifts!
