New in My Shop: Wooden Snowflakes, Toadstools, and More!

Things have been a bit quiet on my blog recently but I've been busy working on lots of new projects and adding lots of new things to my shop.

I was particularly delighted to receive a batch of new wooden bits and bobs from one of my suppliers recently: there are so many crafty possibilities in these lovelies!

There's a box of 45 little wooden snowflakes...

... big plywood buttons...

 ... a trio of toadstools...

 ... and a set of Christmas / fir trees, too! (How fab would those look decorated with paint and glitter??!?)

I just ordered a few sets of each to try them out, so my stock levels are a little low right now (in fact the Christmas trees sold out already!) but I'm hoping to order lots more in October.

My listings are set up with UK & European shipping but I'm happy to chat about and quote for worldwide shipping, too, just send me a message.

4 Free Cute Christmas Embroidery Patterns

I took a bunch of time off work over the summer and didn't send out any newsletters... but I'm determined to catch up with my "monthly" subscriber-exclusive freebies. 

If you're already subscribed to my pattern newsletter, expect a whole flurry of projects to land in your inbox in the coming weeks! Not yet subscribed? Click here for full details and to sign up.

First up: a set of cute Christmas characters to embroider.

These little guys would look great stitched on so many sewing projects or framed in small embroidery hoops. They're also perfect for making embroidered felt ornaments like these ones I made a few years ago.

I designed my new Christmas embroidery patterns to accompany this set of felt ornaments...


... the tutorials for making the ornaments are currently available for free here on my blog but I'll be retiring them this winter and adding them to my shop as a PDF pattern (along with the matching embroidery patterns). Grab them for free while you can!

Lots more free projects coming soon - watch this space :)
