New Arrivals
Jeannine McGowan continues her gorgeous seasonal squirrels and acorns with Halloween!
  • Halloween Acorns - Delish! Stitched on a light neutral background, this is worked with hand-dyed flosses and DMC 730 and 371. Hard to see in the pic, it is trimmed with Lady Dot's Wizard (deep purple) hand-dyed chenille trim. Stitch count is 86 x 86.
  • Halloween Squirrel - This is a little mouse-princess (she is wearing a crown and a little striped skirt), who is Trick-or-Treating for acorns! I hope that is a friendly vampire who's serving her! The porch lantern is an acorn, her bucket is a pumpkin acorn, the whole thing is just really cute. It features exactly the same colors as the Halloween Acorn design, so they'd make a cute companion set. Stitch count is 129 x 93.
  • Night Walked Down - This is supposed to remind you of a night fairy coming down to the lavish early evening garden. The flowers are all still boldly colored, but the night sky is falling... and everything will soon be calm. Stitch count is 256 x 151, and this is stitched with 15 shades of hand-dyeds or DMCs.

Sneak Peeks of New Landscape Drums
Summer Quilts from The Blue Flower -  click for more Alpaca Farm from The Blue Flower -  click for more Jeannine has two new designs that are releasing mid June of this 2019. Cute as can be, they are tiny landscape scenes that can be stitched flat and framed or 'pillowed'... or finished into drum shapes as shown in the picture. Presented as charts, the featured wool toppings are a new Lady Dot Creates product... and LD's hand-dyed chenilles are also featured. The wools and trims are available separately.
  • Alpaca Farm highlights a little coral barn, tiny alpaca and even a tire swing. It is stitched on 40ct (you can change that to any count you wish) using Weeks Dye Works flosses of Linen, Graphite, Schneckley, Tiger's Eye, Roasted Figs, Tatanka, Grasshopper, Clockwork, Sand and Buttercup. Colorful and really charming!
  • Summer Quilts features a girl hanging her quilts on the line to dry with her little puppy 'helpers' peeking out of the grass. It's a warm summer's day - can you see the breezes blowing across the sky? String Bean Velveteen and Ogden Grass chenille are featured, and the Weeks flosses used are White Lightening, Skinny Dip, Bright Leaf, Garrison Green, Dolphin, Seagull, Charcoal, Grasshopper, Gold, Red Rocks, Chrysanthemum, and Chesapeake.

The Blue Flower, her Acorns and Squirrels, and a Bee!
The Acorns
Gorgeous new designs by a new designer - Jeannine McGowan - these are absolutely stunning, and I do not know how you are going to choose just one or two as favorites. Her Acorn cushions all measure between 80 and 90 stitches square - so not too big.

Hand-dyed silks are featured in Autumn Acorns with DMC conversions, and hand-dyed Gentle Art and Classic C flosses along with DMC conversions are used in the rest. (Some of the silks are not here yet for the Autumn piece... takings for those, price TBA but approx $80. You use the SAME colors in the Autumn Squirrel - we think one set of silks will do both projects.)

The Squirrels
Aren't these charming? Each one is tending to her precious stash of acorns! Spring and Winter are coded for Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses, while Autumn calls for 10 different hand-dyed silks. (Again, silks are not all here yet, so on those, with anticipated cost of approx $80 - they are the same colors used in Autumn Acorn, we think one set will do both designs.)

All of them include DMC conversions, so a trip to your thread stash is a fun little excursion to take! Each of these measures approx 90 x 130 in stitch count, so they finish approx 5 x 7 on 18/36 ct. Not big at all, but HUGE on charm!


Quilting Bee from The Blue Flower -  click for more
Quilting Bee
Wow... talk about big on impact! This 133 x 110 bee is done with Gentle Art and Classics of Lagoon, Raven, Mountain Mist, Mustard Seed, Old Purple Paint, Piney Woods and Green Onion.

It has lots of quilt sampler motif inspiration... just a gorgeous piece!


A Greyhound Year from The Blue Flower -  click for more A Greyhound Year
This is super cute - a directory of what your dog celebrates about each month! Little Greyhounds dressed up, January has long-underwear and hot chocolate, February is wearing an Abe Lincoln hat, March has a raincoat, August is wearing a life preserver and standing in front of a fan (I love that one!), September has a stack of books, and December is standing in front of the Christmas Tree.

The twelve blocks are all bordered by a set of rabbits and squirrels in those center diamonds! Measuring 267 x 169, this will finish approx 17 x 10-1/2 on 32ct, and is coded for Weeks, Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses. If you stitch this, and your dog is not a Greyhound, I am sure he or she will appreciate your sentiment anyway!!!


The Color of Winter from The Blue Flower -  click for more The Color of Winter
*The color of Springtime is in the flowers, the color of Winter is in the imagination.*

Look closely at this. The design is the same on both sides... but she's changed around all the colors in the flowers, so it doesn't look like it. Measuring 228 x 163, this finishes approx 14 x 10 on 32ct and is coded for Weeks, Gentle Art and Classic hand-dyed flosses.
