Lady Liberty from Heartstring Samplery Stars & Stripes Penny Drum from Heartstring Samplery L is for Liberty from Heartstring Samplery
June Arrivals from Heartstring Samplery
  • Lady Liberty - This chart contains both designs you see - to make a two-sided pincushion. Soft faded demin and raspberry with lots of taupe touches... approx 80 in stitch count, it finishes 5 inches in size.
  • Stars & Stripes Penny Drum - This one needs a gorgeous blue background - so pick your fabric first and then change any reds or creams if you need to. Simple... it measures 180 x 49 - so 10 x 2-3/4 on 36ct - a perfect measurement for the drum finishing. I imagine you can shorten the design into a rectangle and make a traditional cushion as well.
  • L is for Liberty - Beth has charted angel wings on this to be a tribute to universal liberty - not just related to the USA. She says: 'Liberty as in freedom from the constraints of others -- whether because you've graduated, or retired, or otherwise been given release to go out and be free.' Stitch count is 80 x 80.

  • Scenic Sampler - Remember Beth's Scary Sampler? It referenced all sorts of Pop Culture Scary things? Here's the opposite piece - happy and bright - with tons of references to her favorite sweet and happy remembrances from books, TV and movies. I loved reading all about it in the Scary chart! Measures 247 x 215, and is coded for hand-dyeds and DMCs.
  • Honeybee and Wooly Bobbins - Meant to compliment the Scenic Sampler - Beth's hubby made these in 'The board Room.' Beth says they are 'From forest to finish.' Something fun to hold your threads... each is sold separately.
  • My Scissors My Rules - Meant to be hung in a prominent place in your house so that there are no more excuses by family members for improper use of special snips! Beth says you can do this in any color scheme you want, and she's just attached cup hooks to her frame as little scissor hooks! Presented as a chart.
  • My Rules Scissor Fob Kit - Another Board Room creation by college-freshman-son Jack, he's busy, so you get to assemble this yourself! He's supplied the QR code for your assembly needs! Pretty darn cute... you supply the scissors, Jack made the cool etchings and probably cut down the tree too!
  • Home Thread Board - More fun stuff from 'The Board Room!' Designed to match one of Beth's new charts... this is cute just by itself! Measures about 3 x 4, and useful for ANY small projects!

Takes lots of thread - we remember that, but it also features 2 hand-made wooden bee buttons in the center - to make it extra special. Very pretty when it's done, chart format w/buttons.

There are three different charts for this... Honey has skeps on the roof, Doggo has a doggy up there (where he really shouldn't be) and Purrball has the wandering kitty perched up there. Measures 127 x 136, coded for hand-dyeds or DMC, choose your chart.

For the Love of Stitching from Heartstring Samplery Lady Columbia from Heartstring Samplery A Ship for Mary from Heartstring Samplery
For the Love of Stitching, Lady Columbia and A Ship for Mary
Beth Twist has three new designs that have just arrived!
  • For The Love of Stitching - Here's a fun set of 'organizing' signs. 'Always losing my needles' is the verse on the pin cushion. 'Buy all the Thimbles' is the verse on the band that wraps around a glass thimble jar. The scissor box topper reads, 'No such thing as too many scissors.' Finally, the thread box reads 'Need more threads.' Stitched on PTP's 32ct hand-dyed Oaken, Beth has used Classic's Muddy Puddle, Tennessee Red clay, and Weeping Willow, and Gentle Art's Raven and Ruby Slipper. She's provided sizes of the boxes and jar on the chart, and featured Lady Dot's Barn Door chenille trim.
  • American Mama I - Lady Columbia - This chart has designs for two cushions - or just one, if you finish them back to back. Paying tribute to a female symbol of America, this is chart one of three - the others will release later this year in May and August. Stitched with hand-dyeds, DMC conversions provided.
  • A Ship for Mary - Beth writes, "This antique reproduction sampler's original stitcher did not leave any clues to her identity, but she cared enough for a woman named Mary Simm to give her creation away as a gift. In addition to the large central bouquet, there are some birds, small baskets of fruit, and a rather charming ship.

Advent Season Ornament Set from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Hear the Angels Sing from Heartstring Samplery Joyous All Together from Heartstring Samplery
A Few New Offerings by Heartstring Samplery
  • Advent Season Ornament Set is a contemporary-flavored 4-part design. JOY, PEACE, LOVE and HOPE are the words that correlate with the lighting of weekly Advent candles. She's stitched these 41 x 68 pieces on Fibre on a Whim's 36ct Dusk hand-dyed linen - which is just the most gorgeous deep, rich blue color. (We have it in several counts... 36 makes them about 2 x 3-1/2) She's trimmed these with red and white striped butcher's twine that looks like peppermint!
  • Hear the Angels Sing features the lyrics from the 4th verse of 'It came upon a Midnight Clear.' She's charted Satin stitches in the angel's wings, and used DMC and Weeks flosses.
  • Joyous All Together - a companion to Love & Joy, these lyrics are from 'Deck the Halls.' Choose a simple fabric, and one single hand-dyed thread color, this finishes approx 3-1/2 x 7 on 36ct.

Sunday Stitches from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Sunday Stitches Thread Board from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Sting from Heartstring Samplery Sting Thread Board from Heartstring Samplery French Flea Market Biscornu from Heartstring Samplery
New Offerings by Heartstring Samplery
  • Sunday Stitches - This is a book filled with 15 different and favorite church hymns. You might remember that Beth released 12 of these over a year period a few years back - with limited availability. Individual charts have been retired, but now that whole set PLUS three more are together in this really nice book. She has history about each hymn, the chart, finished pictures and even a few vintage church pics in here! Beautifully presented, each is stitched on different fabrics, and all are different shapes and sizes.
  • Sunday Stitches Thread Board - Beth's husband created these pretty thread boards to help keep you organized while stitching! He added that gold super-magnet on there for needles, and wrote the hymn titles featured in Beth's Sunday Stitches Book! Measuring about 5 x 5-1/2 in size...very pretty!
  • Sting Like a Bee - This the Beth's half of a collaboration with Plum Street Samplers. Inspired by a quote from Muhammad Ali - 'Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee' - we have two halves that work individually, but go together. Finishing about 4 x 5 as a pin cushion... stitched with DMC flosses on Country Vintage Mocha linen.
  • Float like a Butterfly, Sting like a Bee Thread Board  Plum Street Sampler's Paulette and Heartstrings Beth collaborated on a stitched design featuring this motto... and here is the matching thread board!
  • French Flea Market Biscornu - Actually quite large in size, this features gently denim-blue flowers on one side, with stripes on the reverse - which remind me of French Tea towels. Weeks flosses, there is a DMC conversion, but this measures 114, so on 36ct this finishes a generous 6 inches! Beth has a little history in here about the origin of Flea Markets - kind of fun to read. Does this design remind you of our recent 'A Little Help From our Friends Stitching Circle?' Our Bee Biscornu companions this!

Look at What Heartstring Samplery has sent!
Love & Joy - A excerpt taken from The Wassail Song - also known as Here-We-Come-A-Caroling - this is worked with one shade of hand-dyed thread, on any neutral color and count you want! Measuring 119 x 61, it'll finish about 6-1/2 x 3-1/2 on 18/36ct. A pretty little thing, it has a few quilt-inspired motifs on it... and would look lovely in lots of other colorways.

  • Seahorse Soiree Biscornu - Beth is in love with the 'quirky, bizarre and crookedness' of biscornu cushions. Since she loves the ocean, she decided a water-party was in order... and invited seahorses, mermaids, whales, turtles, crabs and jelly fish who seem to float everywhere! Colorful and just for fun!

Baby Got Backstitch from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Love Letter from Heartstring Samplery Heartstring Samplery's Beth Twist has sent three new charts.
  • Love Letter is dedicated to all the different people - US - that Beth meets at her stitch events. Having a lot of fun with her design, she talks about changing skin tones or cuff colors if you need to, just to match YOUR nation of stitch friends. Move around the rings, stitch a different number of hands... her pin cushion measures 4 x 4-1/2 as it is on 40ct.
  • Baby Got Backstitch - The third in Beth's series based on lyrics of songs from the 80's and 90's. You get a whole lesson about it inside the chart... makes the whole thing really fun to study! She talks about changing colors of fabric and thread... and wouldn't that repeating pattern that surrounds the middle be cute just as a small pin cushion?

The main piece measures about 5 x 9 on 32ct, while the smaller out-take ornaments measure just 40 x 40 stitches - so under 3 inches! Make small cushions, little block stand-ups, or the cute banner in the pic. I love how different the smaller bits of the bigger piece look when they are separated!

'Here a Peep' measures about 5 x 6 on 32 - it has the CUTEST little farm animals all over it! Pigs and cows and sheep - it is super cute.

The 'Folk Bouquet' is smaller - about 4-1/2 inches square. It actually has the same flower on it as the Farm one... but Beth color-coded it NOT in sunflower colors!

Berry Bowl Sampler, a Collaboration between Heartstring Samplery and The Scarlett House
Wow! This is her collaboration with The Scarlett House! *Life is sweeter when shared with Friends.*

Stitch Count for the Entire Piece is 200 x 200... I think this will NOT get lost on the wall!

Consider the Lilies & His Eye Is On The Sparrow

Consider the Lilies
Oh my goodness... Beth has created her companion sampler to His Eye Is On The Sparrow! (Lilies is on the left... Sparrow is on the right.)

She is celebrating her first 'book' design - "complete with staples and 8-1/2 x 11 pages!" Consider the Lilies is HUGE - just like Sparrow. Packed full of charming motifs and tons of details... it'll be treat to have stitched in the shop! We don't have specific numbers yet or a color listing... but from the pic it looks stunning!

His Eye is on the Sparrow
Wow... is sampler is a KILLER! It is so large and eyecatching... you'll fall in LOVE with it! It's a Garden of Eden sampler -- with a bit of real estate in there -- but that's artistic license! *His eye is on the sparrow and I know he watches me*.

The stitch count of this is 435 x 363, so it finishes approx 31 x 26 on 28ct linen. It's stitched with Weeks and Gentle Art hand-dyeds and is just brimming with charming sampler motifs everywhere.

If you are an over-achiever... you could always take your favorite motifs out of here and make coordinating pin cushions out of them to display next to your finished sampler... or arrange some of them down the sides of a runner, or scatter misc things onto larger pillows... this piece is so charming, it can be the central decorating theme of a room!

Pins & Orts from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Thankful Life Pinkeep from Heartstring Samplery - click for more
Tons of Fun
Beth Twist has been releasing all sorts of unique and creative designs these past several weeks.... float your mouse over the individual images to see their names.
  • Pins & Orts - A 4 x 4 pin-cushioned-sized piece... make it into a jar topper for Orts, a cushion, or maybe even applique the flat stitching to a little flannel 'stitching place mat!' Colors are pretty, and the florals look old-fashioned.
  • Thankful Life Pinkeep - This is a super-functional finishing treatment for a stitcher! Beth designed a little stitching sampler - reminding us to 'Count our Blessings Everyday'... and then she turned it into an over-the-arm-of-the-chair caddy and added a scissor sheath, a pocket for threads and a pin cushion on it! It can personalize your stitching chair! How cool is that! Presented as a chart, with finishing instructions... so neat!

The Choose Your Own Motto Sampler from Heartstring Samplery - click for more
The Choose Your Own Motto Sampler
What a cool idea Beth had with this design... she's done a pretty floral border, and given YOU the option of filling in ANYTHING you want to say... instead of one of her verses. Of course, we can all do this with ANY pattern we have... but you never think of that. You're going to need some graph paper, and charted alphabets to use, but think of something fun and see what you can create! Stitch count of overall border is 205 x 171.

*On a side note... Rosewood Manor has a book of 101 charted SMALL alphabet fonts... which is just incredible. A wonderful reference book - regardless of whether or not you stitch her main sampler - it's the kind of thing that comes in really handy with a project like designing your own motto!

Where Liberty Dwells Chart from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Where Liberty Dwells
Heartstrings Samplery has a fun little design that speaks Patriotic, but with pretty 'samplery' flowers and vines.

Measuring about 4 x 15, Beth has it finished into a 'Huswife' - a roll that features a lining of pockets to store sewing implements. It'd make a pretty basket band... and a neat long pin cushion as well to perch on a widow sill. Coded for Weeks hand-dyed flosses.

  • Festive Little Fobs - Barnyard & Teatime Editions Beth reports that she is kind of *Fobbed-Out* these days, but did have two more subjects to add to her set of 12 OTHER Festive Little Fob charts. The tea cups are cute, but the Barnyard collection steals the show because of the goat on top of the barn and the tiny animal stack! 9 bitty designs in each chart, if you are an over-achiever, and you actually stitch all of these... they will bring your Festive Little Fob collection to 126 pieces! (If you were on our FF Auto-Ship, we did NOT continue it with these two, as they were not part of the promised original set.)
  • The Cat Sampler - *A house isn't a home without the ineffable contentment of a cat with it's tail folded about it's feet.* So there you have THAT! Measures 173 x 134 - approx 8 x 11 on 32ct. Coded for hand-dyed flosses, it's very cute and eyecatching!

(#1 is Valentine, which has just arrived.)

When you are finished, you'll have something like 110 smalls! Give them to 110 friends, or nestle them all in an awesome wooded tray or woven basket. Make some two-sided, finish them flat for ornaments... ANYTHING!

Charted for Weeks flosses, do everything on the same fabric, or mix and match... you decide! Remember, they are small, so you can probably get away with 5 or 6 inch scraps, some even smaller! Get out your finishing velvets and trims... this is going to be an AWESOME set of designs!!!!
Joining from the beginning will include all the charts released so far at $10 each, subsequent releases will all be $10 each. This collection introduced in February of 2018... it finished early, in December of 2018.

Victoria's Garden from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Victoria's Garden
Heartstring Samplery's Beth Twist has reproduced an antique sampler that is full of pretty roses and mossy greens along with lavish flowers and floral urns. Choosing a 28ct linen, it'll finish approx 14 x 18... something smaller like 40 will give you a charming 9-1/2 x 12 piece! She thinks it's from England... no date on it... but that's for YOU to add to YOUR sampler!!!!

Offered as a chart, it is stitched with Pebble Beach, Roasted Chestnut, Old Brick, Country Redwood (2 skeins), Woodrose, Pomegranate, Caramel corn, Endive (4 of those!), Light Khaki, Goldenrod, Dove, Tin Roof, Dirt Road, Collards and Pink Sand. I don't know what's more fun... the color names or gathering them all together to imagine how a finished piece is going to be!

Permit Me Not to Stray, Rachael Holmes and Never Let You Go
Oh my goodness... I LOVE all three of these!
  • Permit Me Not to Stray is an Adam & Eve piece that has such a lavish Garden of Eden... I missed them in there at first! 197 x 197 Stitches... the colors are rich Pomegranate, Gold Leaf and Avocado... the border doesn't over-power that gorgeous garden...
  • Rachael Holmes... What a gorgeous little divided band sampler!!! There are straight stitches in the central band right below the row of the house and animals. It is full of detail, VERY pretty color, and actually quite striking because there are so many bands packed together in this 10 x 12 piece!
  • Never Let You Go -- I wish I was a little seed. I'd grow and grow and grow. I'd twine myself around your heart and never let you go. Isn't that the sweetest verse EVER????? This is a wonderful sampler -- it'd make a lovely wedding present, or housewarming gift... even a family tree piece. Alphabet at the top is elegant, row of flowers is pretty, the verse is so cool, and that whole bottom area is totally fun, especially with all the animals in the front yard!!

Beth Tent Stitched the grass to save time. She and her husband have taken over her in-laws Labrador breeding company... and she's still found time to design and stitch a sampler about it!
