– Sale Update June 2014

Our Semi Annual Sale June 2014

Only a few days remain

I thought this might be of interest: The July August issue of VERANDA magazine has several articles on blue and white for summer color schemes. They call it a classic romantic combination – “classic and timeless all at once”. I couldn’t agree more.  Summer to me is blue and white. I just finished stitching the sample for our cross-point Morocco Square in the 09 blue and white combo:

morsq-09 200Here are a few of the companion pillows in the same blues:morsq09 and companionsshown above: Morocco Stripe Square 09 at left, Triangles Back Pillow 04, Balouch Stripe 04 (at back), Nilos Octagon and the large Nilos in 03 blue and white.

Blue and white is a traditional companion to antiques – paintings, porcelain, warm hued furniture and is the perfect combination to freshen up an  interior or porch, especially for the summer. At any rate, it’s a color combination that’s been around for centuries. The cross-point™ website   shows all related companion pillow and rug patterns to stitch in this beguiling color combination. Last month – May – I listed all the possible blues and whites in the cross-point collection on this blog.

Please also note: Since we no longer send out Constant Contact e-news,  each month I will continue to select a Design of the Month and post it on this blog, Facebook, Pinterest and on the website. Please send me an email via the Contact page on the website if you wish to receive an email notification directly from us.
