It’s that time again; the holidays are just around the corner and we
here at Connecting Threads have been getting into the holiday spirit
with a fun new project: 12 Weeks of Christmas. To learn more about the 12 Weeks of Christmas event, check out yesterday's blog post: We're counting down the weeks to Christmas! I’m starting off the countdown with a new embroidered pillow pattern.
I don't think it's any big secret that the folks here at Connecting
Threads LOVE Christmastime. Case in point: there's a giant snowman in
our Director's office. This year, we decided to spice up the fun factor
around the office and get our customers and friends involved in the
joyous celebrations that we partake in as a group. Starting tomorrow, we
will be counting down the weeks until Christmas with a new, free
pattern that you can download each week. What's even better is that each
of the patterns are exclusive to Connecting Threads, and written by
members of our team. The patterns we will be offering are absolutely
awesome. Whether you're looking for gift ideas for your guild friends,
home decorating items, or fun stocking stuffers, you'll get a little
something for all of your holiday needs!
Happy October! Yep, I know, this October Candle Mat
was predictable, right?! But, this little pumpkin guy is so cute with
his smiley face and sparkly eyes. He sports a skeleton chin and a pirate
hat (stem). The little 3-1/2" blocks along the side are very easy to
assemble and it's fusible appliqué. You can really have him constructed
in an afternoon!
Rest in Pieces is another fun Halloween collection by Jenni Calo, this time with a rustic feel. Vintage Churn Dash and Four-Patch Fall, two quilts from the Connecting Threads archives, show the versatility of the collection.
Last year’s Halloween collection was well received, so we were
determined to do another Halloween group this year! As many of you know
by now, I try to be really versatile in my artwork, so I wanted to do a
collection that was different from last year's. Rest In Pieces has a rustic feel which is a contrast to last year's All Hallows Bash that was bold in color.
