Picked up some new items related to cross stitching and wanted to tell you about them.
This pic shows some 'homespun' fabrics I picked up. They'll be great for backing some of the small pillows, ornaments and pincushions you are stitching. Word Play is a good example and you could use this fabric on some of the Blackbird small pillows and pincushions.
The fabric is prepackaged in fat quarter pieces approximately 18x20 and retailing at $2.50. Check them out today- solids, mini checks, stripes, plaid and prints. One fat quarter piece will back 2 Word Play pillows done on 30ct. And speaking of Word Play, we have rusted bells if you want to add them to the pillow. They are available in packs of 5 and 10 bells.
New to the shop are 'wrought iron easels. They come in 3 sizes: 12 inch, 11 inch and 7.5 inch. Reasonably priced at $5.00 for the small and $8.00 for the large.
Also in, and I have to apologize for the pic, as it was very difficult to scan, is an Amish pincushion, complete with fabric tape measure, a pack of buttons and a rusty safety pin for decor. It's black fabric and attractive with it's odd shape. A great gift for the stitcher who has almost everything.
