Gayla's Santa on the Roof
Sharon Quick has a new stitch guide featuring this Down the Chimney Santa from Gayla/Alice Peterson.  After all, Christmas is only 250 days away!  Sharon might have stitched this in six weeks but there's the finishing deadlines to consider....

The guide will be available after Easter weekend.  Contact Sharon through Facebook or email her at if you are interested.

North Pole Village: Close Up Views

If you are a fan of Rebecca Wood's whimsical Christmas stockings, you'll love seeing Stephanie's "North Pole Village" stocking.  This was stitched using Amy Bunger's stitch guide.  The photos are close ups from Stephanie's stitching of this.  Wonderful!

Flowers without Weeding

If you are eager to have flowers without all the work of gardening, Needlepoint Etc. offers Raymond Crawford's flower squares, complete with stitch guides from Alison Hodgkins.

These were a monthly club at A Stitch in Time Needlework but now are more widely available.  Very pretty!

Melissa Shirley's New Guide

Nimble Needle has the newest Melissa Shirley stitch guide (yes, Melissa herself stitches some of her canvases, and does a wonderful job, to!) in the shop.  The design is called "Winter Table" and is one of a series of seasonal table top still lives Melissa has been designing lately.  Your shop can order this for you but since Nimble Needle has such a nice write up and photo, I thought you'd like to see this.
