You will not want to miss Melissa Shirley’s “Ribbon Candy”. They are featured on the front cover. I really enjoy working with Melissa. She is one of those people who have a smile in their voice. I stitched one of the candies and loved it. The finishing instructions are included and you do not have to pull out the sewing machine. I don’t know about you, but me and my sewing machine do not get along very well.
Pat Mazu is back with a very cute, fun, mini stocking. It is stitched in Halloween colors but it would look good in any color combination. Stockings are one of the things that I can actually make my sewing machine do so I like to stitch them for Christmas Ornament Exchanges.
Ada of “Eye Candy” has the first in her series of trees. The “Fall Tree” is full of fun stitches using newly available threads. Ada has a great sense of color and she loves using lots of different stitches. So does Renee Frank of Pepita. Renee featured a piece called “East” a Judaic image that represents the Kotel, the most famous landmark in Israel. Between Ada and Renee, we felt like we charted enough stitches to publish our own stitch book.
Now I need to get back to the Nov/Dec issue where we will be featuring purses, elves, Christmas ornaments and more…
