Block of the Month

Keep the holiday spirit alive as you work on this beautiful embroidered wall hanging by Meg Hawkey of Crabapple Hill Studios. The top and bottom borders spell out the old favorite Christmas carol on tag garlands and the large, center block depicts a snow covered tree decorated with a glittering village and bottle brush trees full of ornaments. The surrounding blocks feature vintage style decorations, a village inside an apothecary jar, and a Christmas village scene under a glass cloche. Get yours today.

Merry Christmas to You from all of us at HIQ!
