NEW THIS WEEK - July 5th, 2006:
Vintage Christmas in July
When the summer sun is hot, we are ready to dream of those
crisp, snowy days of Christmas. And, summer days are a wonderful time to dream
of ideas and sew some projects for holiday gifts and decorating. So, put on a
Bing Crosby version of America's all-time favorite holiday tune, and
let this week's designs be an inspiration for some summer sewing.
bookmarks in holiday themes will be wonderful to have on hand for stocking
stuffers and for adding a special touch among the ribbons on gift packages.
Vintage poinsettias and heirloom wreaths are delightfully delicate and hearken
of thread art that's just like grandma used to sew. You'll adore the Old World
art of St. Nicholas-like Santas and the panel designs of a Victorian village at
holiday time. For sheer elegance and ease, sew graceful vintage angels in toile
for linens, quilts, and table decorations. They're welcome additions to the
toile holiday design selection.
