Spring is Here!

Everything is in bloom and there is just something in the air that makes us feel renewed and refreshed.

We really like Ysolda Teague and have many of her patterns and all of her books in the store.  Our latest model, Marin, is a great accessory and just perfect for our Spring weather.

Marin is reversible, symmetrical, and the shape curves nicely around your neck.

Julie knit Marin using Blue Sky Alpaca's Royal Petites.
The Alpaca drapes beautifully and is so soft against
your shoulders or neck.

We used 200gms of the color Primrose

"Orchid Thief", another beautiful wrap by Ysolda

Scroll Lace Scarf, by Ysolda Teague


Veyla Fingerless Mitts with Button Detail.  Try our mother of pearl buttons on your pair, by Ysolda

We just received new Books for Embroidery

This book offers a unique insight into the methods and materials she uses to create her designs.  Here's a look inside this incredible book:

These butterflies are beautifully created with
needle and thread...amazing!

Create incredible beauty with silk threads.

Lori has just completed "A Dutch Beauty", a cross stitch design by Permin of Copenhagen.  This sampler was originally stitch by a thirteen year old girl from the Low Countries with the initials HVZ.  This historical sampler has 68 bird and animal motifs.

Enjoy Spring, everyone, and especially the longer days and generous light - perfect for knitting and stitching!
