Here's pictures of the two new Blackbird Designs Christmas projects. Christmas Garden is a beautiful sampler. I'm really attracted to this style sampler, full of motifs. You can do lots of extra projects by just pulling out a motif and working with it. Just like they created this small box, you can make small pillows to gather together in a bowl or basket or hang on knobs around your house. Take smaller motifs and create a candle band for the large candles we have today. Just think about all you can do.
Crowning the Tree gives us a new stocking to add to our collection. This one is about 6 inches long so it is larger than the others you may have done from Blackbird. If you want to use it strictly as a home decor item and not just as a tree ornament, think about enlarging it by stitching on a 10 count fabric. You would get a stocking over 8 inches high which you could fill with greens and hang at your fireplace or on the interior side of a door or just anywhere you need a touch of the holiday.
Just think about all the ways you could use these designs. Let your imagination run wild.
It's going to be a few weeks before we get these charts in. Give us a call and pre-order your chart. Distributors should get them the beginning of next week and then start shipping to local needlework stores.
