I must first thank all the firefighters and emergency service personnel, that fought the fires last Wednesday around the Mallala and adjoining areas . Which is about 1/2 an hours drive from where we live, here in Elizabeth. Our thoughts go out to all the people that have lost there homes and farms. May 2016 be a better year for you all.
On a happier note, two weeks ago the Christmas pageant and Father Christmas came to Adelaide, we have had that joy for the last 82 years. There is a count down to Christmas now and a lot of people here in Adelaide, specialy those with children, put up their Christmas tree in time for the Pageant. The shopping centres also get into the act, putting up their decorations, so it is definitely starting to look like Christmas here.
The colour card for our scissor tassel which I told you about in the last blog, is now on our web site at www.christinascraft.com.au/gifts-projects/gifts-page1.
For those stitchers who like to work on fine linens, we now have the 38 count Graziano Pronto back in stock, both in Ivory and White. Pronto is a dense weave and works really well for things like Schwalm and Italian cut work, but we do have some people who use it for very fine cross stitch, as it is a true evenweave.
Finally for those who are looking, for a last minute Christmas gift, either to stitch or give as a kit to a fellow stitcher, we have selected a few ideas and here they are.
For more kits please check our web site.
Hopefully I will get back to you before Christmas but just in chase I do not, I hope you will have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. From all of us here at Christina's Craft.
