Cottage Garden's 2023 Snowman Collector's Series has been announced!
WOWZA - This is going to be an awesome series by Vinniey Tan of Cottage Garden Samplings. Each month a new chart will release, beginning in just a few weeks - late November of 2022. Stitched on Fabrics by Stephanie's 36ct Chocolate Milk Linen. (We have it and 32ct as well!)
You can stitch each snowman individually or join them all together - as shown in her teaser pic. (This teaser pic only shows a tiny part of each of the upcoming designs, btw.) Each of the 12 charts finishes a little different in size, but all are worked with a combination of Weeks Dye Works hand-dyeds and DMC flosses.
The Needleworker is stunning - he's wearing his glorious patchwork coat, and his tummy is decorated with buttons. The background is scattered with scissors, a pin cushion, a sewing machine and spool of thread - did you notice that each of those motifs could be made into tiny fobs or cushions or ornaments? Promising to be a really fun series, we're beginning an auto-ship for the charts... lots of fabric options as well!
Note: when you order an auto-ship, it will show up on your order form as a "zero-cost" or $.01 item, as we won't charge your credit card until we ship your charts.
Oh Look at Santa! He's perched atop snowflake blocks of ice (there's a tiny rabbit watching him!), and trimming his woodland tree with the topper star. Stitch this on any medium blue hand-dyed - just something to show off the snow detail and his swirly beard.
The tree features pine cones, and I think those birds and squirrels would look awesome stitched with Simply Wool by Gentle Art! Christmas Star measures 120 x 120, so it'd be only 6-1/2 inches square on 36/18ct!
Trick or Treat, New From Cottage Garden Samplings!
Halloween is around the corner - although the weather is just as scary RIGHT NOW! Check out this neat design - you have nine small cushion-sized designs that are all joined with a spider-web border! The whole piece measures 169 in stitch count, so each square is 56 - so 3 inches on 18ct.
Beautiful little designs in here... I love the owl, and at first my eyes didn't see the bat or the ravens, but I saw those webs! Coded for DMC and Weeks.
The New A Year in the Woods Series
Wow, is these little guys are elegant and exotic! Just look at them! Cottage Garden Samplings is has now completed its set of 12 designs entitled *A Year in the Woods.* You can watch for them to come out monthly in 2022 and collect JUST the ones you want... or you can join our auto-ship and just have them turn up in your mailbox (like magic!) as they are released this next year.
The Fox is the first in the 2022 series. Vinniey has such fun 'textures' in her designs - she just uses shapes (the curves in the tail) and tiny repeats (look at the body pattern) in her designs to really bring them to life.
This one is done on Picture This Plus's Mirage linen... possibly a challenge to get, we have some beautiful Cross Wing Collection darker hand-dyeds, but maybe you have something pretty already waiting in your stash!
This auto began in November of 2021 and continued with one chart monthly with a planned finish with #12.
Note: The 2021 Series, A Time for All Seasons, is now complete - We can now ship the whole set at once! Just scroll down a bit!
Boy, this sleigh is so full, I'm not reindeer can fly with it! Santa is doing some fancy footwork to get his deliveries done... this is stitched on Picture This Plus's Alchemy hand-dyed linen. A yummy gray color... the chart is coded for regular DMC floss, and will finish about 8 x 12 on 32ct.
This might be a fun design to add some gold metallic into, or some beads, black metallics for boots, Simply Wool for fur or bear... see what you have hiding in your stash!
A Time for all Seasons Series
FULFILLED - ALL DONE - WE CAN NOW SHIP THE WHOLE SET AT ONCE!
This is a pretty set of 12 designs - each has a bird (or bee) or gigantic fruit - SOMETHING big and bold and colorful to celebrate its season.
100 x 130 In stitch count - all the same size - collect just some, or all of them!
Halloween Sampler II and Christmas Sampler II
This is a pair of seasonal alphabet pieces that are neat in their own ways!
Somebunny Loves You
from Cottage Garden Samplings
This cute little guy measures 93 x 125, so will finish about 6-1/2 x 9 on 28ct. It is simply coded for 10 colors of DMC.
We think it'd make a cute pillow for a little girl's bedroom!
The Songbird's Garden
Oh gosh, this is lovely set of designs that were released monthly. We have the first three - Forever and Ever (Northern Cardinal and Christmas Rose), Merry & Bright (Black-capped Chickadee and Winterberry Holly; and Winter's Wisdom (Golden crowned Kinglets and Conifers). Cardinals, chickadees, pine cones and holly... you can see that this entire set if going to be lovely!
Presented as charts, we have the first 8 so far. Each measures 159 x 159 and are worked on various colors of 36ct Weeks Dye Works linens. (Tin Roof and Dove so far.) Very elegant!
Peace on Earth
from Cottage Garden Samplings
Another Songbird design by Cottage Garden Samplings! We actually thought it was #9 of her Garden Songbird Series... and even sent it to our Auto-Stitchers by accident! (#9 is still on the way!) However, the other birds in this series of designs are really very classic, and they are a little larger.
Peace on Earth is stitched on Weeks Dye Works Dove hand-dyed linen and measures only 125 in stitch count. We love it, and know you have time to finish it before next Christmas!
from Cottage Garden Samplings
What a cute medley of Halloween-themed words all bunched together into this alphabet piece! Stitched mostly in hand-dyed blacks (There are three different shades in here... Blackboard, Raven and Soot!), you get just a hint of bright coppers and oranges here and there!
Finishing approx 10 x 10 on 32ct, they suggest Weeks Dye Works Havana Linen, which comes in several counts. Maybe add a little black Petite Treasure Metallic Braid to the capital letters???? Offered as a chart.
A cute sampler - this baby is huge! Stitch count is 235 x 196 -- so it finishes approx 17 x 14 on 28ct! Very pretty motifs, the basket of wool yarn, scissors and thread are fun -- you could probably work those together with the sheep and the verse if you don't have room or time to get the rest of this finished.
The shepherdess is hugely grand, however, and so is the house! Charted for DMC, the roses are 315 and 316, grays are 844 and 3787, and good greens of 503 and 3363.
