New for Fall from Val's Stuff
Here are a few fun things to bring us out of the heat and into the cool pumpkin season!
  • Fall is Best, Fraidy Cat and Turkey Time
    These are mini pumpkin poke kits! Small 3 x 3 designs stitched on the newer 18ct perforated paper with DMC, stitch them in jiff. Back them with the felt cuts, adding the black poke stick, and you're finished. No sewing - just stitching!
    Val's little kits contain the design, paper, felts and stick. You supply the bits of DMC from your stash. Poke these into plants, craft pumpkins, real pumpkins, a bowl of candy, a cake, even your pencil cup at work! Nice bright colors to add a splash of FALL.
  • Fall is Best of All and I Just Can't Wait for Halloween Night!
    Two new charts to stitch on some wild Halloween-y colored fabric you might have in your stash. Cute verses, fun colors, Val doesn't call for any specific Just Another Button Company Buttons, but there are a million pumpkins, leaves, spiders, birds, and bats that would look really good on these.
    Presented as leaflets, coded for Weeks and DMC, these linens are by Weeks, but there are so many fun colors out there now, you have lots of options! Both finish approx 5 x 7 on 28ct... or smaller on smaller counts.
