Animal Crackers Thread Pack
Christmas Items, Kits, Newly Release Designs
Jenny was sitting sketching ideas for Christmas and looked out of the window at her youngest daughters cute little red Fiat car parked outside the driveway. She decided it would make a happy subject for a sketch and wondered how much Christmas shopping would fit into it.
This modern little ornament is the result. Heaps of fun to stitch with its padded mud guards. The design is pre-printed and the stitches are simple. Beads, sequins and metallic threads really add a sparkle.

Queen Anne’s Lace – Travelling Work Station
Please note: the original Quilters patterned fabric that Jenny has used for this design has now sold out and the supplier cannot supply any more. Jenny has chosen a complimentary fabric as a substitute.
Queen Anne’s lace is one of Jennys favourite plants. The Latin name is Daucus Carota which means wild carrot.
Travelling Work station is part 1 of 4 in the series – Jenny designed this little project before COVID 19 happened. She spent so much time traveling around teaching and really enjoy stitching whilst on an airplane or sitting in a motel.
The front features a young hare jumping through the flowers and on the back he’s deciding which ones to eat first.
Inside has a miniature pincushion which can be used as a ‘needle rest’. There are 4 pages of cashmere for the needlebook, the top section has a pocket to hold a pair of travel scissors or cutting wheel on a twisted cord. The whole work station folds closed and is held shut with a second twisted cord/ tassel that wraps around a button on the front.
The station has a central spine and the front and back are stiffened, sandwiching both the needlebook and miniature pincushion.
The thread cutter has also been included in the kit just to make it all complete.

Basil’s Garden Kit
My new design is of Basil, our ginger British cat whom was part of our family many years ago. At the time we owned a lovely old property (1854) with a small cottage garden nursery at the bottom of the garden. I sold Devonshire teas on the veranda and in the gardens on weekends. Basil would hide among the plants, especially the pots of grasses and gently tap customers hands as they examined the pots of plants causing them to jump – he never attempted to scratch them. Laughter followed as he then popped his chubby face from behind the plants. I have called this design “Basil’s Garden”.
I have not yet written up the blanket project however I have featured a similar design on three different items – a travelling workstation, a scissor keep and a pin keep!SKU: n/a$39.95 – $189.85
