New Ornament Kits Coming

comments: 63


I spent the weekend tracing, cutting, and stitching tiny pieces of wool felt into another set of Christmas ornaments for this year. This is my Walk in the Woods ornament set, which includes the Snowy Tree, Little Deer, and Cozy Cottage. (Can you see the "smoke" coming out of the chimneys on the cottage?) I am really happy with how they turned out! I really get into these. You get obsessed with blanket stitch (one of the coolest stitches, don't you think?). I think they are such a fun project to work on in the fall, especially if you give yourself enough time so that you don't have to rush.

If you were hanging around these parts last year, you'll remember the Ice Skating Afternoon ornament kits that Andy and I put together last September. I designed these new ones to be companions to those, and I am going to try to do a new set of three every year, I think. This year, we are putting together kits for the new, Walk in the Woods set as well as a whole new batch Ice Skating Afternoon kits as well, if you missed out on those. I know it seems early for Christmas, but rushing around during the holidays and trying to squeeze everything in just takes the fun out of all of it, for me; I want all of these kits off to you by mid-October or so.

To that end, we'll start taking pre-orders for both of the kits tomorrow, and leave the orders open for a week or so. I'll show you close-ups of each of them tomorrow and give you all the details then, too. This is just a sneak peek 'cause I was excited and couldn't wait! And Andy has been begging me for three days to please post again already.


Oh, Alicia! You create the most beautiful things.
"Walk In The Woods" - I love it.

I love the little cottage ... soooo cute :) .. and it's never to early to think about Christmas.

Alicia, these are so adorable!

LOVE THEM. Must get two kits as soon as you start taking preorders!

Oh my goodness, those are adorable! I've just discovered your blog and I'm so excited, what a great kit to get us in the holiday spirit!

Love them!

I LOVE the tree! I actually squealed out loud when I saw it.

Now I need to get out last year's ornaments and *finish* them so I'll be ready for this year's!

Those are so adorable I can't stand it!

these are absolutely adorable! :)

Oh is he bashful?
These look wonderful

Oh, FANTASTIC!!! I LOVE these!!

I can't wait! Please hurry! I purchased last year's collection and a family friend made them for me, she makes us ornaments every year!She is 88 now and I know the time is getting short and it makes me sad. She loves to do it for all of us and we love her for it.

I was thinking the other day that I wished I had snapped up the ice skating kit, one of each please!

This post actually made me think, christmas is coming.. I need to start preparation! Thanks Alicia!

So very lovely and cozy looking! (I love the little smoke detail). :)

oh, this is so exciting! It's grey up here in Seattle this morning and I can't help but think that the holidays aren't too far away, and I love these cozy-up times so very much.

These are gorgeous! We're expecting our first child right before Christmas, and I'm so excited to give my child an ornament each Christmas the way my mom did (and still does!) for my sisters and me. These would be perfect!

These are stunning!!! xxx

They are beautiful. I am sitting in my studio working on the holiday's. I just can't believe they are right around the corner.

Oh my gosh, so cute and a wonderful companion to last yrs...of which I need to order another set too!

Ack! Love love LOVE! The little smoke detail...fabulous. :)

Super adorable. Let's make the house come to life and write a fairy tale. Is Snow White living there? Very impressive, Alicia!

The ice skating kit was the first thing I came across of yours out in the blogosphere. I still look at those to appreciate the style, whether it's christmas or not. Glad to see you've done it again for this season. Last year I admired from afar. This year I'm ready to put down that credit card and get a kit for myself!

I absolutely love these! I had so much fun making the set from last year..and blanket stitch is such the best stitch!
