Upcoming Spring 2024 Releases
  • Abuzz at Midnight - Oh such pretty colors popping against that brilliant blue background!Measures 7 x 7 on 36ct.
  • Cottontail - Here's a quiet bunny hiding amidst the flowers in the garden. Liz presents two different colorways for this - kind of a 'push' to you that you CAN change fabrics and colors sometimes.
  • Remember Me Sampler Tree - I love this one! Finish it by framing... or make one of Liz's cute little cone shapes and make a tree out of this. The charts for each are slightly different to accomodate that finishing, but you get the same personality of the design. Doesn't look like it in the pic, but the framed piece is stitched on Country Vintage Mocha linen - a great 'faux hand-dyed.'
  • Spring House - This piece sports two different pieces of fabric joined together and then framed. Liz describes her dream garden house in the middle of an April rain shower... overflowing pots of flowers from the roof, the charming greenhouse, the European lace curtains and all charming bunnies and blooms in the yard. The whole thing is charming! Just be careful to choose two coordinating fabrics for this - same count, same texture.
  • Tenth Day of Christmas Sampler and Tree - Instead of 10 Lords a Leaping... we get ONE Santa! Way better! Liz suggests a darker fabric so the metallic 'magic' threads can be seen that are tumbling out of his sack. Same size as the other 9 so far in the set... just two more to go! (Scroll down a bit to see all of this series grouped all together.)
  • You've Got the Love - LOVE this one - of course! Another really good design to play with fabric and color options! Liz presents LOVE in a curved script, and the heart-shaped design as well. The bigger heart measures 104 x 91, while the smaller word is just 107 x 52.

New Releases from Liz Mathews
  • Boo - Cute little pin cushion to tuck among your pumpkins, stitched on 32ct with Weeks or DMC flosses.
  • Homespun Hearts - We were looking for the hearts in these! Three different colorways offered, the plaids are lovely!
  • Ninth Day of Christmas Sampler and Tree - This set is charming - smaller in finished size than you think - the stitched tree is about 8 inches tall before its wooden trunk.
  • The Pumpkin House - Darling! Choose two fabrics - have to be the same count - the house part is on a yummy dark blue and pumpkins below on something else neutral. Really a cool piece!
  • The Sampler Tree - Here's one of Liz's cute trees but a SAMPLER MOTIF design. On 36ct, it measures 99 x 126 - so really only about 5-1/2 x 7 in total size - but when you assemble it'll be smaller!

Eighth Day of Christmas Sampler, Basket & Butterflies, and Gifts From My Garden from Liz Mathews
  • Eighth Day of Christmas Sampler continues this charming Days of Christmas set. The same design but changed just a bit... Liz makes each 'day' into a rectangular sampler - 6 x 8 on 32ct - or that petite little tree shape! I took a pic at Market of the other seven trees already released - I put them in a circle, because I thought it was a fun pic. The trees are simply hollow cones that she has stuck on a stick base... so super easy finishing to get that tree look. So... a really unique finishing presentation - you could end up with a tiny forest of stitched stand-up trees!
  • Basket & Butterflies - Just 6-1/2 x 7 on 32ct, stitch this in one color of your choosing on a fabric you like! Simple and pretty, something to finish into a lavish bed pillow or stitch super tiny and frame - displaying on a table easel.
  • Gifts From My Garden - Stitch this with our without the 'lace' background - Liz has added antique buttons to suggest a collage look - but loves the single bouquet too. Multiple background fabrics would work... I think the flowers pop against the dark stitched background too.

The Days of Christmas by Hello from Liz Mathews
Liz is designing trees and samplers for each of the 12 Days of Christmas, and they are turning into a really really nice set.

Pretty colors, repeating sizes and those cool trees... each 'day' is its own separate chart.

Autumn Cloche by Liz Mathews - click to see more Hocus Pocus by Liz Mathews - click to see more Loved By You from Liz Mathews - click to see more Poppy by Liz Mathews - click to see more
Liz Mathews has quite a few new designs that are worth a look!
All are here; everything is presented in chart format
  • Autumn Cloche - What a gorgeous garden-under-the glass! Pumpkins and mushrooms, birds, butterflies, snails and spiders! Just delightfully busy to look at, everything in here is fun to look at. I like the spider webs on the leaves. Charted for silks or DMC, stitch this on a light neutral. It's quite large, and finishes almost 10 x 16 on 18/36ct... so pick a fabric you like to work on! Great Autumnal colors... the red and blues are unexpected and a really nice accent.
  • Hocus Pocus - One of Liz's signature designs - just a few simple words - 'It's all just a bunch of Hocus Pocus' is from one of her favorite movies - Disney's Hocus Pocus from 1993. She talks about the extra fabric around her word designs. You can do whatever you like, but she loves finding old frames, and then arranging her words inside - not necessarily centered (although this one is.) The extra fabric space is unexpected and draws your eye to the simplicity of the design.
  • Loved By You - We all know these lyrics by James Taylor too! Another understated design, stitch in Week's Kohl (although it can be any color you want) this showcases Liz's ideas of framing - with the subject off center. Really cool... this would make a classy wedding gift! Don't put the names and dates on the front.. hand-write them on the back paper... maybe even beside the invitation.
  • Poppy - This was inspired by antique herbarium books of pressed flowers. The thread choices are muted to reflect the dried flowers once saved between pages of a book. Liz loves the hand-written labels that often accompany the pressings... so she's provided label artwork you can cut out and incorporate into your framing or finishing. The pink flower is framed between two pieces of glass, (frame at Amazon), its fabric is fringed along the edges and it's mounted onto another soft pastel linen. You can see how she's incorporated the hand-written label idea into the framing. All the framing and finishing details are in the chart.

Winter Garden by Liz Mathews - click to see more For a Friend from Liz Mathews - click to see more Seventh Day of Christmas by Liz Mathews - click to see more
Winter Garden, For a Friend and 7th Day
  • Winter Garden - Wintery blues and a pair of deer... this finishes about 6 x 9 on 36ct. Coded for Gloriana silk or DMC of 3859, 3750, 3051, 3011, 680, 822, 938, 3790, 932 and 535.
  • For a Friend - A vase of lilies. Finishes about 5-1/2 x 6 on 36ct... the added cut-out is cool on the bottom left corner. But you could also leave off ALL the border and stitch just the main pot of flowers for a totally different presentation.
  • Seventh Day of Christmas -- This is turning out to be a really charming set of designs! (Scroll down to see the others.) Liz is working through the Days of Christmas with both 5 x 7 rectangular samplers and tiny 5 x 7 stitched conical trees! We've seen her collection so far stitched at Market, and these are enchanting! They look large on the chart covers but really aren't - she has that tree over a styrofoam cone base. Since there will be 12 of these, you could do 3 samplers, 3 trees, 3 pin cushions and 3 ornaments from the set - nothing says they all have to be finished the same to go together!

Wildflowers from Liz Mathews - click to see more Sunshine by Liz Mathews - click to see more
Liz Mathews has been busy with quite a few new releases...
  • Wildflowers is shown stitched on both a dark and light background fabric... and Liz has changed the colors in each! Midnight and Morning... there are only three shades that are different. These finish about 6 inches in size on 32ct.
  • Sunshine - *You are my sunshine, my only sunshine!* These are stitched off-center on your fabric, in one shade of a golden hand-dyed floss. The models on the front cover are mounted in 8 x 10 frames - so that gives you a size idea... These are the same 'flavor' design as Old Friends and Gather Here. Super plain... your frame choices can really dress them up if you want!

A Parade of Elephants by Liz Mathews - click to see more Quaker Gardens by Liz Mathews - click to see more
A Parade of Elephants and Quaker Gardens
  • A Parade of Elephants is a whimsical piece that would be cute in a kid's bedroom. Coded for DMC, it finishes approx 5 x 8-1/2 on 18/36ct. Add some initials on the flags, or names across the bottom to make all your tiny elephants happy!
  • Quaker Gardens - Just a pretty little piece - very organized, when lots of Quaker samplers seem to be so random. The two pics help visualize color choices - you can always change the single color you work with - using a hand-dyed gives you a little more shading, but DMC is good too! This main sampler finishes about 5 x 8 on 16/32ct.

After the Rainbow by Liz Mathews - click to see more Bittersweet Village from Liz Mathews - click to see more Two Pumpkins Bright by Liz Mathews - click to see more
After the Rainbow, Bittersweet Village, Token of Fall and Two Pumpkins Bright
by Hello from Liz Mathews

Several new designs by Liz Mathews...
  • After the Rain - I LOVE this one! Stitched on any basic fabric you want... all the rainbows are stitched with the same color palette of DMC floss, only they're all mixed up! 171 x 181, you can even choose your OWN colors... but be easy on yourself and choose the same number of shades as Liz used... subbing one color for the other. That way, your balance of color is the same.
  • Bittersweet Village - Oh this is pretty. The leaf shapes really catch your eye - horizontally and vertically - your eye is teased everywhere with this explosion of color and shape repetition. Measures 104 x 96... so about 6 x 6 on 32ct!
  • Two Pumpkins Bright - These little guys are cute - we like the dangling spiders and the confetti-look of the background. Those spiders would be fun to do in beads or black metallic, and so would the pumpkin eyes. This measures only 73 x 95, so little at 4 x 5 on 36ct!

My Home in the Garden by Liz Mathews - click to see more Old Friends from Liz Mathews - click to see more
New Designs by Hello from Liz Mathews
  • My Home in the Garden - Liz is a gardener, so she's created this using all the colors in her garden. Along with the sunshine yellows and sky blues, she's added all the charming stylized flowers. Finishes approx 11 x 12-1/2 on 32ct... these bands would be super pretty stitched individually and then finished into a set of drum-shaped cushions - you could leave on the alphabet, or not - and just have rounds and rounds of flowers! Look at the Klara Hansen piece.
  • Old Friends - *Your heart and my heart are very old friends.* So simple, it just says everything! Of course you can change fabric and thread colors... I hope you have another heart to stitch this for!

Sleepy Hollow by Liz Mathews - click to see more
Sleepy Hollow
This one has that cool branch of owls, all those pretty leaves and acorns, and then all the jacks and cats along the bottom.

Lots to look at, it finishes approx 6 x 12 on 32ct Legacy Linen by Picture This Plus, and is stitched with regular DMC!

Red R Sampler from Hello From Liz Mathews - click for more
Red R Sampler
from Hello From Liz Mathews
Yes, there is a red R on here! An interesting reproduction piece, the red and blue vertical lines on the left and right extend up and down into the framed area edges... the original was stitched on an old linen grain sack - so those mimic the sack!

There is a lot of 4-Sided on here, as well as Algerian Eyelet - actually both alphabets at the top. Measuring 229 x 216, it is also coded for silks or DMC floss.


Gather Here from Hello From Liz Mathews - click for more Butterfly Cloche from Hello From Liz Mathews - click for more
Newest Releases
from Hello From Liz Mathews
  • Butterfly Cloche - What a pretty piece! Measuring 171 x 191, this is stitched on 40ct and measures approx 8-1/2 x 9-1/2. The colors are so yummy... Liz is showing single butterflies attached to the bottoms of antique glass paperweights as a neat finishing idea. DMCs of 937, 732, 3809, 310, 413, 3866, 927, 829, 839, 3826, 680, 918 and blanc.
  • Gather Here - I love this one! Stitched in just one hand-dyed thread color (pick one you like!), this finishes a generous 15-1/2 x 7 on 36ct! Clean and contemporary!
