New Beaded Banner from Mary Maxim

I received the Christmas 2008 catalog from Mary Maxim in the mail the other day and have looked through it several times already. I love their catalogs, if not for actually making a purchase, then for getting ideas of things I could do on my own or just thinking about all the things I could do if I only had more time.

I love making beaded banners and I have designed a few myself, one of which I shared with you recently. After looking through the whole catalog, I landed on the back cover page and found this beaded banner kit which really caught my eye.

Candle Beaded Banner from Mary MaximThis candle banner, I think anyway, is quite pretty with its lacy top and bottom edges and festive red candle in a gold tray with holly leaves. Just the kind of thing I would use to decorate my holiday mantel, only this one is made out of beads and can hang on the wall. This was one of the winners of their beaded banner contest from earlier in the year and was designed by someone I have known for a long time. We are so much alike that sometimes we are even confused for each other.

Christmas Tree ell Pull from Mary Maxim
Another of my favorite banners from this catalog is the bell pull size Christmas Tree banner which is 6 inches wide by 23 inches long. I think this one would look very nice hanging on a front door during the holidays.

Mary Maxim has such a nice selection of the very things I enjoy making, and these two kits are definitely on my wish list. If you are looking for some nice little projects for this Christmas season, or any time of the year, pop over to Mary Maxim's website and browse around. You can even sign up for their paper catalog and have something to enjoy with a nice cup of tea every now and then.

Happy Stitching!
