Bird in Hand: Autumn from Heart in Hand - click for more Hocus Pocus Halloween from Heart in Hand - click for more
New Fall Arrivals
Cecilia continues her collections of seasonal designs with these individual small charts!
  • Bird in Hand: Autumn -- You can see this set of designs in the picture at the top of our Heart in Hand page. It is one of 7, actually, that all celebrate the seasons and holidays. Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter are together in a pillow or framed version. The fat little bird in here is decorated with a teeny white ghost, but Halloween is not the focus of this -- you see the squirrel, pumpkin, owl and leaves first. Finishing approx 4-1/4 on 28ct -- DMC and hand-dyeds, this is a nice set of designs. Chart comes with brass leaf charm.
  • Hocus Pocus Halloween -- What a cute Heartware Bowl Topper! Cecilia's hand-turned pottery bowl -- her Heartware (which is gorgeous by the way) -- is featured in the finishing treatment for this 2-3/4 inch round design. Stitched on 32ct Vintage Country Mocha Belfast Linen, this calls for lots of DMC or hand-dyed threads. Finish it as a round ornament or pin cushion, or make it into the flat cover for that re-useable little Ort Bowl. The blocky pumpkin and the little ghost all nestled between blowing leaves... it's full of Autumn-y color!

Wee Santa 2018 from Heart in Hand - click for more
Wee Santa 2018
Every year we are treated to a new Santa design... this year, he has mixed his stripes and polka dots! Measuring 4 x 4 on 32ct Country Vintage Mocha Belfast Linen, he is colorful and rotund, and features a few short and thin winter friends.

Stitched with DMC or hand-dyeds, the Wee Santa Collection has been around for years and years... always the small cards of super cute Santas! Chart comes with two snowflake button embellishments.

Hocus Pocus Halloween from Heart in Hand - click for more Harvest on Dahlia Ridge
This 4 x 4 design is super-rich with Autumn color. Stitched on 28ct Ale by Picture This Plus -- Weeks Cocoa Linen would be another stunning color of fabric for this, too. Both really highlight the bold hand-dyed flosses, and those big flowers just add to the dramatics!

Cecilia has included two small wooden pumpkin buttons, you see them in the grass. Shown in a frame, you could make this into a pin cushion pillow and embellish the edges with some dark-colored (we have several options that match the threads) mini-ball fringe trim -- that would be a bold finish for this cute design. Presented as a small chart with the buttons.

Today Forever from Heart in Hand - click for more Ye Old Crow from Heart in Hand - click for more Ye Old Crow & Today Forever
Heart in Hand has two new small designs... they presented as single charts with a few button or bead embellishments.
  • Ye Old Crow is worked with just Weeks Onyx hand-dyed floss -- or black DMC. Change it if you have a dark color you like instead. Next is the fabric... Cecelia offers three other options, but this is the perfect thing to stitch on some really cool fabric you have in your stash, that you just LOVE, but have no idea what to put on it! Bright oranges, dull golds, mangy greens, obnoxious purples -- all those cool fabric colors work well for Fall, and a design like this! Love that little black ball fringe trim!!!
  • Today Forever can be a ring bearer cushion... could go in a round frame... could go on the top of Heart in Hand's new Stoneware Bowl... stitched on 32ct it finishes approx 3-1/2 inches round.

New Summer Designs
Cecelia Turner has sent three new small designs that will finish in a jiff!
Bird in the Hand - Summer is one of 4... Summer and Winter are already here. You can stitch it individually as a cushion... or join all the seasons together. At the top of our Heart in hand page, you can see a pic that I took in her room at Market -- they are all there both ways! Small card format, finishes approx 4 x 4 on 28ct.

Merry Making Mini: 4th Of July and Free -- 2 x 2-inch designs, make them into fobs, bitty ornaments, or baby pin cushions. Charms or beads included, these are super-simple to stitch and finish. Scroll down to see lots more Merry Making Minis.

Heartware Bowl from Heart in Hand - click for more First 2 Heartware Designs from Heart in Hand - click for more
Cecelia Turner has a LOVELY new hand-made stoneware pottery bowl that is a charming little ORT Bowl! Made by artist Christie Goodfellow, the bowls are just dreamy feeling. A soft creme matte glazed finish, each measures approx 3-1/2 inches across at the top and 2 inches high. It's a perfect size in your hand.

Next, Cecelia is designing interchangeable toppers for the little bowls. *Land I Love* & *Bluebird's Nest* are the first two rounds. Presented as charts in her small card format, each design measures 45 x 45 in stitch count -- so on 32ct, they finish less than 3 x 3. (Remember that you probably have a MILLION smaller designs that size... so this beautiful little bowl will work for those as well!)

Heart in Hand has finishing instructions on her website to make the disc lids for Heartware -- they don't wiggle around -- so you'll want to take a look at that. Anyway, CHARMING CHARMING little bowl, with the possibility of a million cute designs for the top!!!

How Wonderful Life is... from Heart in Hand - click for more
How Wonderful Life is...
*Now that you are in the world!* What a CUTE birth announcement... or maybe just something fun for a daycare or classroom? ...or a bedroom... you get the idea!

One of Heart in Hand's newest designs, this measures a nifty 27 x 3 inches on 28ct! (or 14.) Stitched with DMCs or various hand-dyed flosses, cute little flora and fauna are scattered along the verse. Cecelia has included the set of tiny wooden buttons -- 6 of them -- they are laser-cut flowers, a bird and a heart -- you can see them in the pic. Such a happy sentiment, it makes you smile!

Cecelia has several other new things... I have them tucked just below, and on her Wee Ones page - click through to see them all!

Black & White Summer Sampler
That's just what this is! Oatmeal and Mascara hand-dyed flosses stitched and garnished with a pair of black glass flower beads.

Bird in the Hand Christmas
A little companion to Cecelia's Thanksgiving and Halloween small designs, this finishes approx 4 x 4 when stitched on 28ct. A medley of alphabet letters and a couple of bitty motifs, you could stitch parts of these and finish them just like the Making Minis if you want, they'd make cute little square block stand-ups too.

Birds in the Hand Thanksgiving from Heart in Hand - click for more Birds in the Hand Halloween from Heart in Hand - click for more Birds in the Hand

Each is presented in her small card format with simple embellishments - both are 60 x 60 in stitch count - and finish approx 4 x 4 on 32ct.

You get the alphabet, a few appropriate motifs and a little chubby bird 'dressed' for the season. Picture This Plus's Legacy color, or Zweigart's Counry Vintage Mocha are the specified colors, but I think you have lots of fabric options for these... you choose! Coded for DMC or hand-dyed cottons, VERY CUTE!

Redbird Sampler from Heart in Hand - click for more
Redbird Sampler
Want a blue or black bird? Change the color! Presented as a small chart, this finishes about 8 x 3 on 26ct -- if you did it over one on 25 Mushroom Lugana -- it'd be only 1-1/2 x 4! (which would make a neat little scissor fob!)

Chart calls for ONE hand-dyed floss color and includes a red heart button embellishment.

2018 Collector's Heart Kit from Heart in Hand - click for more 2018 Collector's Heart Kit

Anyway, this kit comes with charts for both designs, two cuts of linen, a clay button and a few beads. You add bits of floss from your stash. We don't have ALL the past 20 years of Collector's Hearts in stock, but do have an impressive collection.

2017 Collector's Heart
Heart in Hand's Cecelia Turner has another darling heart and love design to add to her annual collection. (We have quite a few of the previous) *Grow old along with me* is a classic!

Presented as the small chart with 32ct Country Vintage Mocha Linen cut, a few glass beads and wooden heart button embellishment, it calls for only 5 flosses that you can gather from your stash. Finishing just about 3 x 3, you can add a bit of personalization if you want (the linen cut in here is 9 x 9, so there is plenty of room). Makes a REALLY NICE, not-fussy remembrance gift.

2016 Collector's Heart from Heart in Hand - click for more 2016 Collector's Heart
Don't just 'collect' these... stitch them for someone you love! Heart in Hand's annual LOVE Heart design is here... we have them on her page going back to 2008 -- so there are lots more to see. Always young, contemporary and fresh, they make REALLY GOOD wedding gifts -- because they aren't out-dated. They all have the look of NOW, and match today's decor. You could stitch more than one, frame them all the same, and hang them together up a stairway... you could add personalization... just whatever.

Offered as the chart with linen and button embellishment, this year's finishes approx 2-1/2 x 4 inches. Use flosses from your stash. Note: Heart in Hand has a lot of small designs that are really nice for wedding, shower and anniversary gifts. You don't always have to do the biggest, most involved sampler to show someone you care...especially if they thank you for your *needlepoint!* I especially like the Mr & Mrs piece!

Happily Ever After from Heart in Hand - click for more Mr & Mrs from Heart in Hand - click for more Mr & Mrs and Happily Ever After
Heart in Hand has released two wedding momento designs that are very simple, clean and contemporary feeling. Not too fussy, just very 'stitchable' for a nice wedding gift. My favorite is the little Mr & Mrs, which finishes a mere 4 x 4 on 30ct. Cute to include in a picture frame beside a special photograph or the invitation. Happily is a little larger -- 2-1/2 x 12. It'd make a cute pillow, or be neat sewn into a fabric wall hanging.

They both call for overdyeds, and although you'd want a pretty red or pink for the hearts and flowers -- you could use almost any other colors from your stash for the rest! Mr & Mrs comes with a few glass bead embellishments, Happily includes a few beads as well, and a tiny brass heart charm.
