High Seas Band - click to see more High Seas Band
You might recognize this design -- part of it appears on Faby Reilly's High Seas Biscornu! A gorgeous flurry of rolling waves... this is an exciting band of turbulent waves, some happy little fish, a challenged sailboat (!) and the ever-stalwart Light House! Can you see the tone-on-tone nautical symbols in the background??

This would be pretty made into a long sausage-shaped pillow to display on a beach house window sill... or bands on a guest towel... or a pillow on the guest room bed! Charted for DMC... you can almost HEAR the crashing waves!

Wild Rose Needlebook and Scissor Case Set - click to see more Wild Rose Needlebook and Scissor Case Set
Faby Reilly does the most elegant florals -- so light and delicate -- we have a new set presented as a scissor case and fob with matching needlebook. Some of the most beautiful charting by Creative Poppy on these, everything is worked in DMC floss on 32ct White Belfast Linen, and features a few gold seed beads in the rose center. The case finishes approx 3-1/2 x 5 -- and is stitched on both the outside sides and a little on the inside.

The scissor case is decorated with the same gorgeous pink roses and darker pink buds, and is the prefect size for a 3-1/2 or 4-inch embroidery scissor. Offered in two different charts -- the needlebook in one, the scissor case and fob in the other. Just lovely!

Celaeno Baseball Cap from Tams Creations
Oh my gosh, this is the COOLEST stitched baseball cap!!!!!! It is presented as a chart with tons of finishing instructions to construct this darling stitched cap. It calls for 28ct fabric. Choose any Lugana/Jobelan type of material over a linen. (Khaki, Cream, White, Light Blue???) There are no specific colors called for in the designs -- it is meant to use up all your odds and ends. Simple Cross Stitches, the easy part is the stitching... there are 6 hat panels -- all with different motifs on them, and the peak -- the hat bill.

Truthfully, the finishing scares the daylights out me! They give you 5 pages of diagrams, steps and 16 photos of the hat-in-progress. I guess I *could* do it... I just think the finishing should be left for a more adventuresome person!!! (Swap this out -- you stitch two sets, someone else finishes them -- you both get a cap! You stitch for her, she finishes for you!) Anyway, you might have a special friend who would love a stitched cap... this is awesome!!!!!!!!

Flake Buddy Bug - click to see more Flake Buddy Bug
This is THE CUTEST LITTLE THING!!!! He's a little Happy New Year Snowman -- finished into a Humbug shape. He has feet, a felt hat, a wool scarf, (you can cut a bit of wool, or you can KNIT one!) and tiny broom that you make out of floss!!!!! He is worked on 32ct white/opalescent linen and is approx 3 inches in size.

The stitching is minimal. There is a little more to the finishing... but the chart supplies 7 pictures for the tiny felt hat, 19 more pics of the broom in its creative process, then 15 MORE pics of the whole thing being put together! Way too cute!

Here's another pretty floral pin cushion design -- a small study in delicate colors -- this joins our other 9 or 10 gorgeous cushions by Faby Reilly. I can't tell you which is my favorite -- every one if these is full of color and stunning design talent... they are so beautiful all tucked together into a basket. Small 4 x 4-ish designs (stitch counts are 70 x 70 in size), there are poppies, Iris, roses, violets... they can be finished any number of ways... the Biscornu shape is simply a suggestion! Offered as a chart, DMC flosses in the color key, this calls for 32ct White Belfast Linen.

Swirling waves surrounding a tiny sailboat, this is such a pretty piece. The shape of the cushion just adds to the movement of the rolling waves.

Stitched on 32ct antique white Belfast linen in a dozen shades of DMC floss, the stitch count is only 60 x 60. Offered as a chart.

Humbugs Galore!
Three more offerings, stitch a small fob or ornament... these DO need to be finished into this unique shape... because if not, they are simply 3 x 6 stitched panels. (Finishing involves only 2 folds and two seams to close! That's IT!)

Beautiful colors, elegant designs! Offered as charts.

Biscornus Galore!
Here are gorgeous offerings -- some that match Faby Reilly's Humbugs - some that don't. Beautiful florals, each is a square design, that is shown finished into a small pin cushion. You *could* frame these -- they don't require their unique assembled shape to be this pretty! The charts are so clear, the front pictures are perfect.

Charted for DMC flosses, each features a specialty stitch or two, (Ribbed Spider Webs or Eyelets for example) and is garnished with beads, and something special to grace their center tied area. Gorgeous! If you need something fun to garnish your centers -- just let us know -- we have lovely buttons and Mill Hill Treasures we can choose.

Poinsettia and Rose Humbugs
Lovely, elegant Christmas ornament designs by Faby Reilly Designs of Paris, this tiny trio of 2 x 2-ish ribboned florals will look pretty on your tree. ***Beautifully Charted*** for DMC floss and Light Effects metallics, each features Mill Hill glass beads, too. Work them on any 28ct count you like... the charts come with a page of NINE actual photographs of the Humbug assembly procedure -- terribly easy when you see the pics!

We don't carry much of the Light Effects thread... we like Rainbow Gallery's Petite Treasure Braid, as the color range is much wider, and the threads themselves are softer and more pliable. We can send all the necessary threads, beads, metallics and fabrics you need. These are *really nice!*
