New from the Nashville Needlework Market!

There are a whole slew of new releases coming out of the Nashville Needlework Market. Some are available now and some are coming soon. I am going to blog daily until I have covered all of the new designs that I know about. Be sure to check back often during the week!

Just Nan
Several small designs and one large sampler were released by Just Nan at Nashville Market. Strawberry Heart can be stitched as a Valentine project or displayed all year long. It is embellished with red and white striped beads and a painted strawberry. Winter Violets incorporates spring violets into a lacy snowflake. Looking ahead to Easter (or perhaps even spring), Dewdrop is an adorable little bunny that is adorned with dewdrop beads and an aqua flower. Floral Fifteen is a 15-sided biscornu embellished with striped beads, pearls and opal coin beads. Harmony is a gorgeous limited edition seasonal silk sampler. And finally, Harmony Monogram Tin is a coordinating accessory tin to the Harmony sampler.

Advent Ornaments is a new series of ornaments that can be used as an Advent calendar. These ornaments are finished as pocket bags so that a treat can be hidden inside. The first three charts are Poinsettia, Advent Candle and Gingerbread House.

Lastly, three more designs have been added to the Dragon Snowfight series. Snowfight: Orange, Snowfight: Indigo and Snowfight: Green complete the series, although I did hear a rumor of possibly two more dragons being added.
