UPDATED: It's That Time of Year Again. All Those Ornament Exchanges, Gifts to Make.

What will you do?

Scarlet Thread has collected all of the holiday-related items in the shop in one convenient place for you: Holiday (I know, really creative). Here are some highlights of what's in store.

Ornament Cuts
We have lots of small pieces of Canvas Ornament Cuts, just the right size for holiday ornaments. The size varies, but none are smaller than 7" x 7".

These are the colors that are available (some in limited quantities): Leventeen Blue (New!), White/Silver Metallic, Eggshell/Gold Metallic (New!), Rose Blush (New!), Brown, Sandstone, Aquamarina, Lavender, Black, White, Pewter, Santa Fe Sage, and French Blue.

We're offering these in packs of 4 pieces, assorted colors or all one color, subject to availability. Just indicate your choice in Special Instructions when you check out. If there's any problem, we'll email you.

We have some complete kits and some partial kits and some delightful new designs.

While we were browsing the online Needlework Show last month, we found some great little designs from Handblessings.

This is Eileen Gurak's delightful Christmas Wreath Ort Box design. This little charted needlepoint design (only 2.75" square) is a quick stitch and great stash buster, and it comes with the ort box for finishing. It's available at an unbelievable price too.

Have a friend who's a Halloween nut? Eileen's also designed a Halloween Web Ort Box that would make the perfect gift.

(We won't tell if you want it just for yourself because you just love Halloween and stitch for it all year long.)

We have one very special Kit in a Bag in very limited quantity.

It comes with absolutely everything you need to stitch this lovely little Threedles Christmas Star ornament. Bonus? After you've stitched it, you have a handy large project bag, with scissors and magnets for the next project in your rotation. It would also make a lovely gift for a special friend.

We will restock when we run out of our initial inventory, so let us know if it's showing as out of stock. (Sometimes we just can't keep up with these things!)

Laura Perin's Christmas Tree 2011 Kit has been very popular. We haven't seen what she's got in store for this year, but look at what you can do with this design just by changing the canvas.

We switched out the canvas, using Nature's Palette's lovely hand-painted Sunset, for a stitcher who wanted just a little more pizzazz. We think it's stunning.

Don't really need another ornament for your tree? Want to finish something as a special presentation for a dear friend? Check out these Sudberry boxes.

This is the Simply Square Box, a very economical box that we have in two sizes: Design area of 4" x 4" (shown) and 5" x 5" (same as the photo, just bigger). Sorry, out of stock.

There's lots more in our Holiday section. Stop by and browse for a while.

Oh, before I let you go. We have a very special price on Caron Collection Wildflowers thread packs. Check it out. Individual skeins have also been discounted.
