How The Finch Stole Christmas
By Artful Offerings, isn't this a festive-looking guy? All dressed in his Santa Suit, he's holding a bright green package... lets hope he is DELIVERING rather than swiping!

Stitched on 18/36 he measures about 3 x 5. Coded for DMC and Gentle Art Sampler Threads, Karina has called for Simply Wool for his hat, trousers and collar trim.

Karina describe her latest design, "Tucked away in the peaceful hills and dales, Bunny Hill Manor is decorated for the season of Blessings and Thanksgiving with Quaker-style pumpkins, acorns and fall leaves. Bunny rabbits abound in the blissful harmony, and numerals and the alphabet complete this miniature sampler."

Stitched on 36ct, this finishes approx 8 x 11 and is stitched with both Weeks and DMC flosses.

This is kind of a festive little piece! Check out the awesome trees - they each have snow on ONE SIDE! Kind of an elegant presentation, stitch your family name where the date was, and maybe a greeting down on the row with the cardinals.

Coded for DMC or Weeks hand-dyed flosses of Pamlico, Onyx, Grits, Oscar, Red Rocks and regular ol' 349! Finishes approx 8-1/2 x 12 n 36ct - so quite generous in size.

Here's a very organized piece... stitched on Picture This Plus's Doubloon Linen with DMC or Gentle Art's hand-dyed flosses. You'll need Baby Spinach, Ruby Slipper, Carriage Black, Chamomile, Wood Trail, Gold Leaf, Pecan Pie and Chalk.

On 40ct, it is still quite large finishing about 7-1/2 x 10-1/2. The bees in the octagonals would make nice scissor fobs. Very patterned, very neat and tidy... pretty colors!

Harkening back to holidays-gone-by with a sweet rocking horse nestled in the holiday greens. Softly falling snow, adjustable bottle-brush trees, a lovely alphabet and numerals complete this festive miniature sampler.

Worked on Picture This Plus's 36ct Ale hand-dyed linen, you'll use a whopping 3 skeins of Gentle Art's Tarnished Gold and 2 skeins of Baby Spinach, and the piece will measure approx 8 x 15! Not so miniature, but very charming!

Artful Offerings has two new designs to add to her fun collection of 'geometrically balanced' artwork.
  • Giddy Goat measures about 8 x 8 on 30ct Weeks Dove hand-dyed linen. He is worked with Weeks or DMC flosses and features a delightful coat of diamond shapes and striped apples. Your eye is treated to round, diagonal and strong vertical directions in this piece... while all the time, the little guy is wearing his dapper bow tie, and waiting for you to notice! He's bringing you an apple!
  • Folly Farmstead is a trim farm... clean and organized, with a fantastic landscaper! Check out those topiary trees of the resident farm animals! Stitched on Weeks Beige Linen with Weeks hand-dyed flosses, it finishes about 13 x 6! I just noticed that the pots are different colors!

Honey Bunny Sampler from Artful Offerings - click for more Honey Bunny Sampler
Thoughts of Spring in the air already? Artful Offerings has a sweet new piece that might make that easier right now! Ms Honey Bunny is stitched on 30ct Weeks Linen color of hand-dyed linen with various shades of hand-dyed flosses. She finishes approx 8 inches square. Can you find the four-leaf-clover hidden in the pic?

Just a fun piece, you get a little graphic texture from the diamond shapes on the rabbit... wouldn't this be fun stitched with Gentle Art's Simply Wool threads?

Wintertide Cardinal from Artful Offerings - click for more Wintertide Cardinal
Here's a classy little guy... just 'a settin' on the branch, waiting for more snow! Stitched on Weeks 30ct Dove hand-dyed linen - kind of a dusty blue green - threads featured are also hand-dyeds.

You can see the pattern inside the bird... that is done with two different colors of thread... gives it a real graphic and contemporary flavor. Greenery is also a gentle repeating shape, maybe add some metallics into those snowflakes? Presented as a chart, he finishes approx 9 x 9.

Hoot-Owl Halloween from Artful Offerings - click for more Hoot-Owl Halloween
This is a cool design. All the graphic shapes - the curve of the moon, the curves of the owl and tree branches, and those round eyes... all accented with the bold vertical stripes on the owl and the horizontal stripes in the moon!

Very simple, with lots of visual impact, this little guy measures about 5 x 5-1/2 and is stitched with DMC or hand-dyeds on Weeks Guacamole linen. He'd make a cute pin cushion, but if you work him on 20ct Week's linen, he could be a couch pillow and measure in at 7 x 8 before you make a gigantic pillow out of him! Presented as a chart.

The chart includes DMC conversions and pillow finishing instructions. It is only January... so there is time to finish this THIS snowy season!

New Arrivals from Artful Offerings
Here is a trio of new charted designs that just make me smile!
  • Sprightly Snowman -- How cute is this little guy!? Stitched on Weeks Guacamole Linen he measures about 4-1/2 inches square and uses just 6 colors of Weeks flosses. Might be cute to add metallics or a sticky-outey carrot nose!
  • SHHH... Counting Sheep -- Real cute for a new nursery! I'd try the Gentle Art Simply wool to stitch him -- he's just charted for regular flosses right now. It is a hand-dyed wool thread that has soft variations in it, and it would make him so fuzzy looking! Fabric color is Smokey Pearl -- to look like a soft evening... but you could change that to match the room if need be... and make the numbers coordinate. SHHH finishes approx 6 x 4 on 28ct.
  • Regal Rabbit -- Another charming design -- I picture this as a pillow on a guest bedroom bed! Stitched on Weeks Avocado linen, she finishes approx 7 x 5, and is worked with hand-dyed flosses. The 'dots' in the background are a mixture of Lilac and Periwinkle... just as sweet as can be!

from Artful Offerings
This is just a cute design to make you smile! By Artful Offerings, it is stitched on Week's Havana linen (several counts available, on 30ct this finishes about 6 x 7) and calls for Sampler Threads or DMC.

You could stitch the kitty in fuzzy black threads -- we have several options, you could add glass beads for the spider and cat eyes -- you could do the moon, bow tie and kitty hat in Fyre Werks metallic... you could bead the border... or add a couple more rows of a complimenting color to make it more jaggedy! Lots of options with this, because it has 'good bones!' Presented as a chart.

You might want to grab a few of the hand-dyeds from your stash too... just for fun! Presented as a chart, you could add some Just Another Button Company acorn buttons to the border, or maybe some leaves!

Artful Offerings has a pair of new charts that caught my eye! Two wintery-souls, each is surrounded by a bit of greenery -- like a little wreath.

Stitched on neutral fabrics, they call for either Gentle Art Sampler Threads or DMC floss, and finish into generous-sized 4 x 5 ornaments. No special stitches or anything... just super-cute designs!
