A clever new idea from CBK is bands to wrap around plain Christmas ornaments. They fit 4″ round ornaments. There are lots of different styles including ones for Easter and Hanukkah, a nautical one, hydrangea baskets, and a nativity. In addition, there are triangular-shaped bands that make a topping for the ornament. This shape includes one of snowmen as well as one with gnomes in patterned outfits. The designs are from Starke Art, one of CBK’s licensed designers. Once stitched, you can send the canvases back for finishing. The designs include the glass ornament in finishing.
CBK has a new welcome sign with a pretty border of pineapples and tropical plants. Two hilarious canvases have a moose whose antlers serve as a rack for wine glasses and a frog at a bar with the saying “rum and croak.” There is a sweet oval for Easter with a bunny pushing an Easter egg in a wagon and a delightful trio of ornament rounds with penguins and another pair with sloths.
Kate Dickerson has lots of new canvases to fit the Planet Earth fobs. These include several different adult beverages, including a mint julep, a preppy alligator on pink, and lots more. Penny Linn has new ornaments of a red wagon and an old-fashioned baby carriage. A new baby announcement from Penny has a teddy bear holding a card where you put the baby’s information. She also has several new canvases for graduation. She also has new frames in several shapes and colors for initials or monograms. Danji has four new coasters featuring cocktails.
Canvasworks has a new round to support Ukraine. It has a dove with an olive branch on a light blue background with a yellow border. Proceeds from the sale will go to the International Red Cross/Ukraine. It is available kitted with threads from Vineyard Silks. The design is a 4″ round on 18 mesh and will be available soon.
AC Designs has added new states and regions to her series which has each letter showing something iconic for the location. The company also has a baby announcement in pink or blue with a stork. The stork’s hat and vest match the baby’s sex. They also have a series of dinosaurs perfect for a baby’s room. The Grand Millenial has a canvas of a two-tier fountain full of daffodils instead of water. A new canvas from Renaissance shows the front of a toy shop with its filled windows. Another has beets in several shapes and colors. Renaissance has lots of fun new flowers in pots with funky designs in a magenta color scheme.
The Salty Stitcher has a wonderful nautical alphabet that has a lovely clean style. You can get the letters individually or all together on one canvas. They also have a lemon tree in a pot (I wish my lemon looked so neat). There is also a set of four coasters with items from a raw bar on a pale blue background. For Christmas, they have a Yeti and a polar bear, each in two different designs. The Yeti comes with or without Christmas lights and the polar bear is either sledding or skiing.
Tout le Monde has a new series of Christmas cracker canvases with four different designs. The Princess & Me has a new series of eyeglass ornaments, with lenses showing iconic items from a location. The designs can be extended to turn them from ornaments into glasses cases. I sure hope this series expands. Another new canvas has a mailbox decorated for Christmas. You can easily personalize it with your house number. Another cute ornament has a trio of Christmas trees, each in a different color of buffalo plaid. Kangaroo Paw has new Halloween stars and bats. In the same series is a wonderful Halloween patchwork pumpkin. They have added two new stars to their patriotic stars, both with sayings.
Wipstitch has a wonderful series of Christmas crackers with lots of simple patterns including gingham, cross-stitch style snowflakes, and other geometric patterns. There are ten in all. Coordinating with them are four Christmas place cards. Quick stitchers could do these to get a start on a magnificent Christmas table. The company has a new series, 12 Days of a Southern Christmas. The rounds include seven briskets smoking, and a cardinal in a magnolia tree. Available in several colors are four round coasters, featuring four-letter words. They also have several college belts all on gingham backgrounds.
New magnets from Accoutrement include a color wheel that actually spins, a Cinco de Mayo minder, a monarch butterfly, and Snoopy as Joe Cool. A limited-edition set of minders is for Beauty and the Beast. The company has several new animal minders, including a snarling tiger. The Collection’s bow canvases have inspired minders in two sizes and several colors. Custom House has a new charted needlepoint design of a 3-D die.
