New from Amy Bunger and Lori Carter

The April-May 2018 newsletter from Amy Bunger's shop shows off new guides from Amy herself and from Lori Carter.  Lori's doing small ornaments that coordinate with Kelly Clark's Zero Degrees North set of canvases and finishing up Raymond Crawford's Twelve Stars of Christmas series.  Amy's doing a set of Christmas trees from Maggie, a perfume bottle from Labors of Love and one of Lani's interiors.  As always, it is a fun read even if you aren't in a market for a stitch guide.
