Time for Valentine's Day stitching! Actually it is time to let others know that they are loved, and bring some warmth into this cold winter. This pattern is available now in your local stitchery shop. Support your local small business and order yours now.

We wish you a safe Christmas. And we wish you would wish others a safe Christmas. So you can do so by stitching a quick ornament that depicts the strangeness of this year. Rudy is masked up and we can still see his glow through his mask. We are busy stitching these for our friends this year. Check in under our Winter Series and see the various fabrics and finishes we are doing. If you wonder what I mean by "we", my husband is also stitching some of them.

Due to getting requests for friends to join Rudy in wishing you a safe and merry Christmas, we have his two friends, wearing masks and in a festive mood.

It is also time to get out the bright spring colors. Not only do they chase away the winter blues, they also will help you stay ahead of the holidays so you can enjoy your finished decorations the entire season.

For the lovers of Old-Fashioned Valentines, this pattern is a limited edition available from Etsy. Also are free beading, painting and cross stitch patterns. Check back frequently as we will add more.
