I don't know about you, but my Christmas projects are sometimes two years in the making. I either have too many ideas or, most often, I run out of time. With Christmas designs now at 70% off, it is the perfect
time to buy embroidery for next year (or at least start gathering designs and
ideas for next year)!
Looking for blanks on which to embroider? You can often pick them up for 75% off after Christmas. Here are some of the designs and what you can make with them.
These would make a beautiful border on towels, napkins, and
Corner and Poinsettia
Two more great choices for table and kitchen linens. Even better, add them to a border or arrange on a pillow.
Candle and Menorah

GO! cutter and Holiday
Expecting the arrival of a baby some time next year?
Like the look of blocks on point but don’t like the
mathematical hassle? These designs stitch on point but can be embroidered on a
regular block for easy piecing. Although sold as a potholder set, they can
easily be made into a quilt, wall hanging, pillow, or throw.
This would make an adorable gift for newly wed couples. Stitch it up on a towel or as an ornament. Leave off the text and you can embroider the cardinals on anything you like.
