Seasonal Cross Stitch Treats from The Silver Needle


There are so many wonderful designs available that celebrate every season and occasion under the sun... so we thought it'd be fun to collect a few of them, and organize them for you on a set of Holiday/Seasonal Pages. I'm a "seasons" nut... so we'll be adding to these all the time! We have so many other projects and ideas in the shop, and elsewhere on the site, but this is a fun way to show you just a few ..... ENJOY!

April Showers Bring New May Flowers
from The Drawn Thread!
Cynthia Zittel has three new designs all presented in chart format with or without the necessary silk threads!
  • Apple Blossoms Sampler is gorgeous! Worked on 32ct Tumbleweed (a dusty green linen) it measures JUST 2-1/2 x 12 inches in size. It's NOT large!!! The bird in the tree branches, what makes this dramatic are the apple blossoms and light colored alphabet letters. As always, Cynthia tosses a lot of special stitches into her designs -- for lots of texture and interest -- makes them more fun to stitch!
  • Sweet Violet & Common Lilac -- Well one of these got left behind in the 'cute name department!!!' A new set of small botanicals, these each finish only 54 stitches square -- 3-1/2 inches square on 30ct Antique Lambswool Linen. Hand-dyed silks... special stitches... these would make gorgeous pin cushions all nestled together in a neat old basket. Presented as charts with or without the silks.

Mill Hill Spring 2018 Button & Bead Kits - click for more
The Button & Beads from Mill Hill
These are the 5 x 5 designs that come fully kitted with perforated paper, DMC floss and tons of glass beads and a ceramic button garnish. We always do ours of Aida or Linen instead so we can make small hanging pillows out of them, but they look pretty good on that paper and framed. The beads catch the light - just makes them glisten!
  • Crab & Seahorse companion the 4 seashells we have already: Conch, Starfish, Nautilus and Sand Dollar. GORGEOUS bead colors.
  • Sweet Shoppe is the latest Main Street design - we have about a dozen Spring/Summer businesses (like the Christmas Village) - pet shop, needlework shop, tea room, bridal shoppe.
  • That's Amore is FULL of cheerful color. It's all relaxed and funky - I love it!
  • Cabana Beach is kind of where I want to live! Might be cute hanging with your seashore designs... same blues
  • Geranium is companion to last year's hydrangeas and the pretty wren and coneflower we already have. Gorgeous colors... consider custom framing these with expensive matting... we've seen that and these are KILLER!

Same fun things to stitch as the larger designs... you get all the threads, beads and Treasure embellishments in these. They all finish approx 3 x 3. The hamburger is easy -- stitch it for a magnet on your refrigerator! The Medallion and Mosaic Egg companion the Easter Eggs we have every year... only instead of ladybugs and flowers... these are all beaded with geometric designs. The bathtub might need a little imagination as to display -- but it's cute!

They're all fun. We have a Christmas wreath in the shop that is decorated with loads of Christmas kits. Get a fake greenery wreath, pretty Spring-colored ribbon, dig out some pastel Christmas glass bulbs, get a string of twinkle lights, plug in the hot glue gun and make a Spring and Summer Wreath!!

Happy Camper from Imaginating - click to see more Happy Camper from Imaginating
Isn't this THE CUTEST little camper???? Talk about fun Tiny Houses -- wouldn't you love to stitch in this -- even if it was parked in your driveway??? You could pull it to all your stitching events during the year, and save on hotel fees! Imaginating published this leaflet and I think it is just charming.

Approx 7 x 9 on 14/28ct, all DMC floss and just plain X's... it's super busy in color and design, and just makes me smile. *Home is Where We Park It!* I'm thinking every RV in existance needs this as decor!!!

Easter Egg Hunt Sampler
from The Victoria Sampler
Here is another of Thea's cute skinny band samplers for the Holidays. She begins with the sleepy town at the top, the Spring gardens of flowers -- I think the Easter Bunny is making an appearance in the center row, and finally the children hunting for their precious eggs!

Stitched on 28ct Ice Blue Cashel Linen, with tons of colorful silks and a few petite seed beads, this finishes approx 3 x 17.

A companion to The Trick or Treat and Happy New Year Samplers, you get lots of specialty stitches in here -- all in that 3-inches!!! Offered as the leaflet with thread pack separately.

Spring in the Meadow by Just Nan -- click to see more! Spring in the Meadow from Just Nan
OHHH... this is the first in a 4-part series by Just Nan. A lovely spring garden full of busy-ness! It stitches to 4-3/4 inches square and can be framed, but Nan has folded the corners in to make a pretty little case! Each of the four corners features a different color scheme and garden flowers and animals - can you see the rabbits and the bird? The Sheep is easier to spot!

Stitched on 32ct Natural linen with DMC flosses, there are lavender and light blue bead embellishments and one of Nan's hand-painted violet charms to dress the center. You can see a gorgeous bouquet of violets inside here... our charts WILL COME WITH THAT while they last!!! (They were very limited -- but I made sure our first shipment had one bouquet charm for every design!!!)

So, framed, this will be 4-3/4 inches in size. Folded into the case it'll be a bit smaller. We are beginning an auto-ship to make sure you get the other three seasons as they are released!!! Charts on auto will ship with fabric, and any extra-special charm that is a limited offering for them!

Bluebird Tweet by Just Nan -- click to see more! Bluebird Tweet from Just Nan
Another darling Just Nan ornament... this little Spring Guy is stitched on 32ct Little Boy Blue Belfast in just bits of DMC floss. He comes with wire legs too! *...a swirly tail, twisted wire legs and a berry in his beak. He can hang by his tail but prefers to stand on his cute little legs. We provide the wires and instructions to make the legs, plus the gold tail, beads, felt for the beak and a burgundy pearl 'berry'.*

Finishing a mere 3-1/2 x 2, remember stitching gets folded in half... so he's less than 2 x 2! He IS on our Just Nan Ornament Auto-Ship... so if you are on that program, your's will be in the mail as soon as we receive him -- which should be next week!!

Your little bunny-in-the-basket is stitched on 32ct Weeks Beige Linen with Palomino, Woodrose, Mountain Mist, Endive, Otter Creek, Wheat Fields and Eggshell hand-dyed flosses. Butterfly is over one, French Knots for the lavender buds. See how pretty a few of our black matte Mourning Pins look poked in here? We have old Fashioned Pear-shaped Safety pins as well... Anyway, the edging is a torn strip of blue and white ticking that is TACKED on around the edges!!!

Such a cool look! The bow on there is a super-duper beeswaxed piece of thread... we have some darling waxers by Noteworthy Needle now to use for this!

The Spring Bird
from Jeannette Douglas
OHHH... the first of the 4 seasons in birds... this is stitched on 36ct Flax Linen with 10 spectacular Spring shades of different hand-dyed and solid silks! Finishing approx 3-1/2 inches square, Jeannette has packed Milanese, Cashmere, Mosaic, Smryna, Rice, Algerian Eyelet and Rice stitches in here, along with Cross Stitches. The border features sparkly glass seed beads as embellishment.

REALLY, REALLY a cute little piece... tuck this amidst a few of your spring-y colored Patterned Pretty pin cushions!!! Offered as the chart separate from the silks. We'll Auto-ship the rest of these! I don't know how long it'll take to release them... but they are going to be such a neat set!

OOH, the Newest goodies from LIZZIE*KATE!
We come home from Market with more cute kits -- little bitties to stitch!
Lizzie Kate's Farm Fob Lizzie Kate's Buzz Buzz...
I LOVE the colors of this!!! BUZZ is stitched on a bright-acid-green hand-dyed linen by Picture This Plus. The black box at the bottom accents the golden honey colors of the hive and the hot pink flowers that you see garnished with a pair of mother-of-pearl shell buttons. Of course the busy bee is buzzing along, too! The colors on this POP! The black and white polka dot finishing treatment is simple -- the pink rik rak is a Wright's trim stock color that Hobby Lobby sells. That combo of the black, pink and green is a knock-out -- only second to your darling stitching which finishes a mere 2 x 3-1/2. Package includes the cute chart, awesome fabric and pearl buttons.

Farm Fob
Time for a little barnyard fun with this two-sided fob. Stitched on various neutral fabrics found during the move of the *Corporate Offices of Lizzie Kate* to a new and improved location... Farm Fob comes with some brown bead embellishments and some mangy-pea-green rick rak trim. The little animals and flowers in this are cute, and that trim is just the most fun color to accent it all!!! Just a sweet small design, it'd be a cute pin cushion as well... and could even welcome some cute buttons from your stash.
