Joy, Love, Peace, Noel

I am happy to show you my newest fabric line from Henry Glass Fabrics, called Joy, Love, Peace, Noel. It will be in stores next May, which will give stitchers the whole summer to get all of their holiday sewing done (no excuses!).
The line includes florals, stripes, polka dots, and novelty prints, in addition to a panel and a stocking panel (I don't have an image for the stocking, but I have to say, it's pretty darn cute).

I was actually sketching out ideas for this line at the beach this summer. It's a good thing I really like Christmas, it didn't take much to put me in a holiday mood, even in 90 degree weather. I remember sitting in the living room at the beach house, making up stories with my kids about the little forest animals, wondering out loud what they do on Christmas eve. I imagined them gathering in the forest for a tree trimming party, laughing and singing, and then solemnly processing to a midnight church service, while singing "The First Noel." Here is the "story" I wrote:

What happens in the forest on Christmas Eve? Do the inhabitants perceive what a special and divine night it is?  Sometimes I imagine the little creatures gathering with their family & friends much like we do.... Making merry, basking in the comfort of one another's company, singing their favorite hymns and carols. Perhaps they gaze upon the indigo sky, and search for that One Special Star... and delight in the sentiments of the season- Joy, Love, Peace, Noel.
