Ann Forfitt 1812 from Hands Across The Sea - click for more Anna Tench 1819 from Hands Across The Sea - click for more
  • Anna Tench 1819
    I am always thinking I am going to describe some of the history Nicola presents with each of her samplers. But this one has 4 solid pages of excellent reading about the family featured in the sampler, where they lived, and what the 'signs if the times' were then.
    Just fascinating, I can't even to begin to summarize! So... a beautiful sampler charted for DMC or silk threads, the stitch count is 266 x 301, so it will finish approx 15 x 17 on 36ct.
  • Ann Forfitt 1812
    Nicola writes that nothing can be found about Ann Forfitt in family records of England! She did, however, stitch this gorgeous sampler that measures an impressive 519 x 570 in stitch count!
    Finishing approx 29 x 32 on 36ct, the verse was first published in the 1700s. Nicola has recharted this from the original sampler, which is part of her personal collection. The booklet is lovely as always, there is a lot of fun history about the village listed on the sampler, and the chart covers several pages, and is presented in full color.

    Part of the verse reads 'pleasure in perfection is...' 4 Pages of history, Frances lost her mother in childbirth, I just have to stop reading all of the stories in these charts... so fascinating! This one is charming, a little over 10 x 10 on 36ct.

Miniature Sampler Needle Minders from Kim's Needle Needfuls - click for more Miniature Sampler Needle Minders
These are sweet bits of antique sampler images shrunk down and down and down... and mounted into 1-1/4 inch 'bottle-cap-type' miniature pie plates!!! Really neat, each features a pair of rare earth magnets on the back, so you can stick them to your metal chart board, the fridge (if yours will still do that!) the filing cabinet -- just anywhere magnets like to be. It'll hold your needle at the same time, and simply make you happy!
Lovely images of the samplers -- we have at least 20 different pics on these, so we'll mix up the designs!

Harry Potter, Star Wars & Frozen II Scissors!
Wow... something fun through our doors this week! Licensed by all the right people... (Disney, WBEI and LFL) we are excited to offer these fun 6-inch scissors in protective 'pleather' decorated sheaths! Each pair measures 6 inches in overall length, and their companion (plasticy-leathery) sheaths measure 5 inches. Tips are not super pointy, and I wouldn't use these to cut fabrics... but the blades are sharp and they work great on paper and threads.

We think Santa needs to bring these for ANYBODY who loves Star Wars, Harry Potter or Frozen (now sold out). (They'd make great stocking stuffers). Each style's decorations are enameled on the handles, and they look really nice. We think because of the 6-inch size they'd be good for anyone in 5th or 6th grade and older - definitely not for little-little kids. I tried to shoot pics of them with both front and back sheath decorations showing... we just think they're pretty cool around here!

Colorful Novelty Scissors
Joining our collection of fun scissors are these new designs! Enameled designs on 4-inch embroidery scissors, while the scissors aren't DOVO or WASA quality, they are cute, sturdy, very functional, cut fine, and look dynamite attached to stitched fobs.

Fun designs, perfect to stuff into stitched needle cases or to display on stitch mats or in scissor blocks. Sometimes you just don't want your $70 scissors 'too available,' so these are wonderful stand-ins!

Floral Embroidery Scissors from Premax of Italy Floral Embroidery Scissors from Premax of Italy
Oh, these are delightful little 3-1/2 embroidery scissors that feature colorful floral patterns enameled onto their handles! Stainless steel, they feel really good! Nice shape, sharp tips with a good taper, not too heavy and not flimsy feeling... they have a nice, smooth cutting action. Brought to us by the same company that did our 'space-ship-scissors' (the Premax Ring Locks), they will be lovely inside all your stitched scissor cases, and extra-pretty with a coordinating stitched fob!

Premax of Italy They feel like the Seasons to me!!! The purple ones are half-way between blue and purple, very 'Summer' with lots of color. The white ones feature little flowers of pinks, yellows, purples, blues... they're an overall medley of floral color... just like Spring! The cream pair has lots of gold, cinnamon, mossy greens... I get a late-summer/early-autumn feel from those... they have a little dusted mauve on them, too. Then, the red and white... definitely Winter! (But then, again, they could be summer!) A light red -- like the DMC 350 corals... NOT deep burgundy red... they're just a cheerful red and white! Sunflower Yellow is definitely a 'Summer!' Definitely new, unique, FUNCTIONAL, and pretty!

Task Scissors -- click to see a larger view Task Scissors
  • Heart Shaped - Shiny gold or matte black finish (black now sold out!), these are 3-1/2 inches in length and feature that pretty handle design. VERY sharp tips, nice sturdy scissors.
  • 4-Inch Black Curved Blade - these are 4 inches in overall length. The cutting blades are slightly curved. Because the finger holes are slightly farther away from the blades (because these are 4 inches instead of 3-1/2) you get more power in your cutting, and because of the curved blade, your hand is slightly 'up' from your fabric or threads, so it's easier to aim the tips right in there to get a really close cut. (Now Sold Out!)

We have a delightful collection of decorated scissors that are super cute to accent special fobs and tuck into fun sewing cases.

Cute, Novelty Scissors!
We have 6 patterns of 3-1/2 inch embroidery scissors that are cute and colorful - fun for little cases and fobs. Not real *high* on the cutting quality end of things, (meaning they are not DOVO quality) they are, however, cute and colorful, and perfect for lots of things! Designs are enameled on the handles so they will not rub off or fade, and will maintain their charm! I had actually never seen pineapple and cactus scissors before... feels like we need a stitched flamingo or something for them!

Pictured from left to right are: Owls (now sold out), Stars, Pumpkins (closer to 4"), Yellow Heart, Anchor, Pineapple, Cactus, and Holly.

Noel Feutre from Cmon Monde -- click to see more Noel Feutre
This is a darling little design that features some bits of wool felt applique as parts of the design. Stitched in Gentle Art Sampler Threads and bits of DMC, check out the mushroom top, the tree and the gifts... they aren't stitched! They are bits of wool sewn on! The chart does have them charted... and in those instructions, I also noticed the charted greens at the top and bottom -- but in the model they are primitive stitched! REALLY cute!

So... you can stitch the entire piece, or add the buttons and ribbons and bits of fun fabrics if you like! Noel Feutre is presented in French -- so I can't read a word of the instructions except the thread names and DMC numbers. Stitch count is163 x 100, this is a chart.

Miss Paris from Cmon Monde -- click to see more Miss Paris
Stitch count of 109 x 87, she's full of pink, and black charm! She's the consummate shopper, don't you just want to be in Paris with her and her little white dog???? Finishing approx 5 x 7 on 32ct, she'd make a darling photo album cover, or look great on the front of a little pink polka-dot tote!

Just a delightful design... a favorite of mine!

Les Trois Sages from Cmon Monde -- click to see more Les Trois Sages
'Three Wisemen.' A trio of little stitched Santa Elves! The stitched area on these is approx 45 x 90. You stitch the face and body, stuff them, and add the charming curly-q legs and some stick arms... and you have a precious trio!

There are finishing instructions inside printed in English; she calls the stuffing 'wadding!' All three are charted in the pack.

Toc Toc Toc from Cmon Monde -- click to see more Toc Toc Toc
We're not sure what the title of this means, as one site translated to fake, fake! Another translated it as Knock, Knock Knock. We think it's a darling piece -- Santa is there with Rudolph (see the red nose!) -- there are snowflakes scattering across the sky, we just like the whole 'flavor' of the 122 x 126 design.

This one uses lots of Sampler Threads -- Onyx, Piney Wood, Weathered Barn, Cherry Wine and Sarsaparilla.

Le Nuage de Pere Noel from Cmon Monde -- click to see more Le Nuage de Pere Noel
'The cloud of Father Christmas'... he's saying that he sees the wise children. In other words, that means that Santa is watching and seeing all the good children before he visits on Christmas! (even without his glasses on -- see them by his boots!?)

So whimsical and cute, stitch count of 120 x 171, just charming!

Quand le Chat est la from Cmon Monde -- click to see more Quand le Chat est la...
When the cat is... (out, the mouse will play!) Oh my gosh, check out the CHARM of this piece! The cat is rotund, with that awesome curly tail, the mouse is wearing a pink Tu-Tu!

The tiny bluebird is just singing away... he's not worried about life at all!!!!! Over-the-top personality in these two 90 x 75 pieces!

Shepherd's Bush Bargains!
  • Spring Peeps Box Kits - Little Bitty designs, these each measure only 26 x 39 stitches... so in doing the math you'll get less than 2 x 3. But if you go over one on something easy to see - like 28ct Jobelan, you're going to get a teeny 1 x 1-1/2 piece! Complete kit of chart, hand-dyed flosses and a needle... these are really great for a new stitcher to begin with. Cute and finish-able for them.
  • Sweet Friend Tag Kit - A small gift tag design... this includes the chart, flosses, but of 14ct perforated paper, the pretty colored paper tag, polka dot ribbon as the tag tie, and a little button embellishment!
  • Thankful Tag - Here's a small design stitched on 14ct perforated paper. There are a whole seasonal set of these; they originally were presented as toppers for the Foxwood Crossings Mini-Sled Ornaments. But then, when the Valentine's one came out... and they realized your Christmas Tree should probably be down already, so they turned then into small 1 x 2 gift tags! Small kit contains the chart, flosses, 14ct paper, pretty striped backing paper you see in the pic and a small button. This would make an AWESOME Hospitality Thank-You gift - especially if you tie it around a bag of your home-made goodies! (which are shown on the cover, but are NOT included in your kit!)
  • Bless Our World Box Kit - Kit contains the 32ct natural linen and hand-dyed and DMC flosses. This would make a really good beginner design as the whole area is only 26 x 39 and it's cute!

Red White and Blue from Shepherd's Bush -  click for more Say Thanks Kit from Shepherd's Bush - click for a larger view Shepherd's Bush Friends Bloom Kit -- click for more Happy Halloween from Shepherd's Bush - click for a larger view
More Shepherd's Bush Bargains!
  • Red White and Blue - This season's 10ct design - presented in a little kit - it finishes about 4 x 5 on the 10ct Sand Tula. The kit includes the fabric, threads and button. These make great beginning kits for new stitchers - cute, easy to see and fast.
  • Say Thanks Kit - Saying Thanks is the true message of our Harvest Season - so the girls designed a cute box-top design that you COULD take to the dinner hostess on Thanksgiving! No box handy? Make another squishy pin cushion!!! (A dozen or so look stunning in an old basket with a doily!) Anyway, complete kit, 32ct line, pretty threads and cute design!
  • Friends Bloom Kit - A smaller kit, you'll be working on 28ct hand-dyed Garden Blend Jobelan, with DMC flosses, adding a row of Crescent Colours' hand-dyed baby rik-rak trim right into the piece. Just a mere 2-1/4 x 3-1/2, this is a real cute friendship piece full of berry and avocado color!
  • Happy Halloween - This is one of Tina and Teri's 10ct Tula designs. PERFECT for a beginning stitcher, it is packaged with the same charm as the rest of their things... so it *looks* enticing for someone young to tackle. Cotton floss and buttons for the eyes are included... it'd be cute simply mounted on a bit of felt, and hung from a bedroom doorknob!

Cats and Peeps from Thistles - click for a larger view #1812 Halloween Collection from Thistles - click for a larger view Halloween Pumpkins from Thistles Merry X-Mas Welcome from Thistles Rail-A-Way from Thistles
Sale Designs from Thistles!
  • Cats and Peeps - Oh, the cats are going to raid the hen-house! Measuring about 8 x 8 on 32ct, this is coded for Gentle Art or DMC. It's hard to see all the baby chicks below the house... maybe a little wool thread to make them fluffy?
  • Halloween Collection - A spooky little shelf... I think it'd be fun to add glass beads to the spiders for eyes, and some furry for legs and the kitty, and maybe some opalescent metallic for the web! Stitch count is 136 x 212, so it finishes approx 8-1/2 x 13 on 32ct - actually quite large.
  • Halloween Pumpkins - A unique-ly shaped pin cushion finishing treatment... might be fun to tuck these into a bowl of traditionally-shaped cushions and see if they are discovered! Worked with Gentle Art Sampler Threads, these are actually pretty good sized - about 5 x 6 on 32ct. Not a ton of stitching on them, but finishing is cute, and you could do a lot of decoration up by the stems.
  • Merry X-Mas Welcome - Oh, there are pigs-in-love for Valentines and a black cat on Halloween that go with this - isn't this plump gingerbread cottage the cutest? Hansel and Gretel live there! It measures about 5 x 9 in size, I think, and is stitched in Gentle Art's Simply Wools of Tea Rose, Raven, Harvest Basket, Buttercrunch, Ruby Slippers, Cidermill Brown, Chives, Morning Glory, and Chalk.
  • Rail-A-Way - An old-fashioned train platform... might be kind of fun to hang over a row of coat hooks, or in a guest room. Coded for Weeks Dye Works hand-dyeds or DMC, it's a bitty 4 x 10 on 36ct Picture This Plus Ale Linen.

Needlework Village #2013 from Thistles

My Sister is the Bester from Thistles - click for a larger view My Sister is the Bester... Than the Bestest! from Thistles
Thistles has a couple of cute charted designs that we brought home from Market last month. My Sister is the Bester - You could switch out that Sister reference to a friend... this is stitched with DMC or Sampler Threads and finishes 10-ish inches on 32ct.

Home Is Where My heart Is from Thistles - click for a larger view
Home Is Where My heart Is from Thistles
Thistles has a new design - a cute little pink and brown house surrounded by Cupid's arrows!

It is shown finished into a heart-shaped cushion - it's actually rather large at 4 x 9 so that pillow is probably 8 x 11.

Stitched with a smattering of Sampler threads, the chart is coded for DMC as well.

Crows & Pumpkins from Thistles - click for a larger view Crows & Pumpkins from Thistles
A fun medley of pumpkins, squash and crows... this displays a fun finishing idea. Each 'side' of the curtain is 80 x 185 stitches -- the design is reversed on the opposite side. (So, you only have to stitch this once if you want to make a pillow or something, and it could be 5 x 12 on 32ct.) Actually, it is finished as a curtain valance worked on 20ct linen. It features woolen hanging tabs at the top and penny-rug-flaps along the bottom for decoration.

Really, really cute, I see this hanging in a cabin kitchen window, or a tiny powder room. Worked on 20ct linen, our 18ct will work as well... it just needs to be washed and dried in the dryer to get it soft and drapy. You can use DMC or hand-dyed floss -- at least 3 stands in the needle -- or size 5 Pearl Cotton. If you choose to make the curtain... just hang it in the most charming little window you can find!

 Giardino D'Autunno from Cuore e Batticuore - click for more
The Last of the 4 Seasons of Floral Pots and Vases
Wow... these are gorgeous!! Each chart has 6 different pots, urns or vases of seasonal florals surrounded by a fillagreed border. The cover pics are very small, but opening the charts -- they are printed beautifully in color and can easily be stitched individually. The actual florals run about 50 x 50 stitches each, without their borders and names. Charted for DMC, this is a lovely collection, you could split them up and make a whole bunch of pin cushions for one basket... or a long row to hang horizontally or vertically on a skinny wall... so pretty!

Autunno has pretty oak, maple and elder arrangements -- just beautiful!

Halloween Menagerie from Threadwork Primitives - click to see more
Halloween Menagerie
A quick design for Autumn. Halloween Menagerie is actually stitched as a flat band that is then wrapped around a felted wool drum-shaped pin cushion. Just 5 or 6 colors of hand-dyed threads... neither one will take you long to stitch.

Penny America from Tree of Life Samplings - click to see more Penny America from Tree of Life Samplings
Freedom*Liberty*Justice! What a perky and cheery pot of Americana! The lavish bouquet of stylized flowers bursts like fireworks from that little pot and the blowing flag is extra-festive. The edge treatments look like the edges of penny rugs -- small circles of wool -- pennies. These are stitched instead, but mirror the swirls and stars from the flowers.

Stitched on almost anything you like, the threads called for are Weeks hand-dyed cottons and your stitch count is 163 x 78. Just something cute that came through the shop this summer!!!

Fade as a Leaf from Tree of Life Samplings - click for more Fade as a Leaf from Tree of Life Samplings
We all do fade as a leaf -- Martha Ann Sheffield -- aged 8 -- in the year 1832... WHAT did SHE know?! It's kind of funny -- there are very few leaves IN this!!! It is an adaptation of an antique sampler, however, and considering it is still here after almost 200 years... it certainly deserves our respect!

She has a neat border here... all four corners are different! You don't catch that at first glance because this is so organized and balanced. Stitched on 32ct, this finishes approx 7 x 8-1/2 -- not very big at all -- and is charted for Sampler Threads or DMC floss. Presented as a chart.

Penny Treats from Tree of Life Samplings - click for more Penny Treats
from Tree of Life Samplings
A cute Halloween-themed scene by Tree of Life Samplings, she does 'Penny Rug' inspired designs, so this is a companion to our Penny America.

Presented as a chart, it's stitched with Week's hand-dyed flosses on any mangy fabric you want. It measures approx 10 x 5 on 32ct... if you're super-crafty, you COULD make a felt Penny Rug border for this -- it'd be stunning! Think about JUST the flowers, jack and cat in a pin cushion!!!

Easter Bunny House from Tiny Modernist - click to see more

Easter Bunny House
Tiny Modernist has finished her 4-part set of this darling little Egg House! We have all 4 charts bundled together now, so you can have the whole thing at one time!

Measuring 136 x 179 - it finishes approx 10 x 13 on 14ct... actually pretty big in size. Charted for DMC thread, the whole thing is full of sweet little motifs, but I like the egg-painting table the best! Set of 4 charts.

Keepsakes One, Two and Three
Sue Hillis has a 12-piece set of cute stitcher-related ornament and pin cushion designs. Presented in three separate leaflets, you would never guess that EVERY ONE of these is the same stitch count - 50 x 50... she's just shown you 12 different finishing options!

All DMC, no special embellishments... you can check your stash for old buttons and cute embellishments... she shows some Puntini Puntini pins on the beehive model - (now, there's a collection of CUTE pins and buttons to choose from!) Sue has also shown a layout on her back covers to join all 12 designs together in one framed piece. LOTS of possibilities with this set!!

O'Santa from Rosewood Manor - click for more
Can you see Santa's face in the Quaker motifs? A real different design take on Santa, you could do just his hat... if need be. Karen has included the Ho Ho Ho pillow and the tiny peppermint cushion charts in here as well.

Coded for Weeks Dye Works hand-dyeds, there is a bit of opalescent metallic in here too for glitz!

Love Always from Annie Beez Folk Art - click to see more Love Always - A sweet smaller piece - this could be a wedding sampler, or just something fun to hang in your family room. If you don't have a pink and red house - change it!

Stitch count is 101 x 76, so this'll finish just 5 x 6 on 36/18 ct. Clay Pot, Cocoa Bean, Cobbled Peach, Cherry Cobbler Oscar and Graphite are the featured colors.

Christmas Robins Scissor Fob from Barbara-Ana Designs - click to see more Christmas Robins Scissor Fob
A charming little design -- it's a double-decker fob!!! A trio of chubby winter robins -- dressed in Christmas finery with their Santa Hats on -- they are so simple, yet so cute! THEN... why haven't we thought of this before???? DOUBLE fobs??? What a cool way to use coordinating designs?! What a neat way to use cool beads from your embellishment stash?! (With so many designs... you could stitch a tiny bit of the larger design as an accent... and attach it to the main piece!)

Anyway, Christmas Robins's top design measures 39 x 46, while the bottom is a mere 25 x 25. Choose your fabric of choice... grab DMC floss from your stash and get BUSY! Offered as a chart.

  • Blessings Be More May your trouble be less and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door. Pretty housewarming gift!
Christmastide from Erica Michaels - click to see more Christmastide
Linda presents a lovely silk qauze piece that stitches a mere 2 x 6 on 40ct! Of course, you can stitch it on something larger... and it'll be pretty either way... but the charm of the 40ct silk qauze is simply its finished presentation.
Joining four other designs in her Petites Collection, Linda is using overdyed flosses in her gauze designs -- something that we haven't been treated to before.

Christmastide is a stunning Holiday piece that has a bold, moving background, behind the 1930s verse she's taken from an old Christmas Card. Check out 'Winter' as well... it's the second season, and joins Autumn, which has been a shop favorite since it arrived!

In the Garden from Fairy Wool in the Wood - click to see more In the Garden
With Mimi-Pig! By Fairy Wool in the Wood, this charming 140 x 140 design features Mimi with her watering can surrounded by 6 blocks that feature scenes from her garden. Stitched on Fairy Wool's own hand-dyed 32ct linen (finishes 9 x 9), she has funny little blotches on here that look strange when nothing is stitched on it, but when you're finished, they look like little splotches of garden dirt! The fruit trees, the veges and tools, something about this is really charming.

Everyone was into stickers this year at Market (I believe this is a limited edition market exclusive) and along with the linen I bought for each pattern, they all come with a sheet of Cassandra Fairywool's whimsical artwork on the charming stickers!

Crazy Dog and Cat Ladies!
Two of AB's new designs... we all have that friend who is NUTS about their cat or dog... they dress them, they cook real people food for them, they skype with them, they even stick them in their purses to go shopping together! (well maybe not the CAT!) Anyway, she needs this! Dog was released a few weeks ago -- Cat just came.

Offered as two separate charts -- both measure 61 x 133 in stitch count -- about 6 x 14 on 14ct. CAT comes with a felt fish for trim, DOG comes with a felt bone. Cute as can be... you could skip the top two cats to save stitching time... but not if that offends that Crazy Cat Lover!

Phantom Plantation from Glendon Place -- click to see lots more Phantom Plantation
Glendon Place has a spooky Halloween piece of a place I never want to visit! Phantom Plantation measures about 12 x 19 on 28ct... would be a little smaller on smaller count fabric. Worked with 63 different shades of DMC floss, there is actually no metallic in here - but I bet you could find fun places to add it! Everything is creepy in here... the moss on the trees, the monsters crawling out of the pond, the horse, the snake in the tree, and the eyes hidden inside the hollow tree... it's really kind of a fun piece!

I don't think this is new - copyright date says 2019 - but she had it on display at Market, and we had to have some copies! So... if you're in an 'edgy mood', get this - it'll make you HAPPY!

Stitch a row of 5 lollypops with their hovering ghosts... leave off the words if you feel like it! 5 cute little pokes, see how cute they'd be if you did them on paper, cut them out, mounted on a stick,tied a bow, then stitched the little word block and added it... then stuck them into pumpkins or the candy bowl!

Regina Haible and Elizabeth Hunt
A trio of new and reproduction samplers... Brenda has given them all gorgeous colors and new lives! Each of these is presented in a full color leaflet format
  • Regina Haible - What a pretty sampler - it looks like an antique French piece. Full of soft feminine colors - just DMC - Brenda has pulled out the bird motif and made a pretty pin cushion as well. Finishing approx 11 x 11 on 40ct, just gorgeous!
  • Elizabeth Hunt 1845 - An English sampler stitched by a 7-yr old girl... it features a pretty border, lots of fun motif detail... and will companion another piece this same little girl did when she was 6! Brenda will release THAT one later this year, I believe. Elizabeth's sampler finishes approx 11-1/2 x 15-1/2 on 40ct, and is stitched mostly with DMC!
  • Tree of Life Sampler - A lovely sampler - not too big either! Rose, butterscotch and gray colors, Tree of Life measures just 89 x 112, is worked with DMC and all three hand-dyed floss companies. On the 32ct Weeks Beige hand-dyed linen it calls for, this will finish just 5-1/2 x 7-1/2. Pretty floral motifs and the cute little house, Brenda shares that while taking the antique needlework out of its frame to better see the colors on the backside, she found a Spencerian Penmanship Lesson hand-sewn on the backside of the sampler. Was it a school lesson by the same set of hands as the sampler? Did she learn stitching and penmanship at the same school? We'll never know. Choose a smaller count of linen if you like... this will be charming no matter what you choose! Presented as a leaflet.
  • Mary Ann Copp 1839 - Oh this is so pretty - a reproduction by Brenda. She writes: 'A beautiful sampler with a stately brick house complete with brick/iron fence upon a brick wall. The basket above the house is simply gorgeous.' The history about the sampler tells that Mary is described as living in a brickyard in Jersey Channel Islands. The Copp family was a well known name in the brick business - so she's included a history write-up in the leaflet! I like that big floral border on this... just gentle and meandering! Measures 252 x 288 - so 14 x 16 on 36ct. Yummy colors in this - you'll need 3 skeins of Oscar hand-dyed floss!

A Weaver's Work from With Thy Needle & Thread - click for more To Quote Shakespeare from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more Merry Yuletide from With Thy Needle & Thread - click for more Essamplaire Petite Collection II from With Thy Needle - click for more
  • A Weaver's Work - Inspiration for this came from a coverlet woven by Adolph in the late 1800's. A male profession, the motifs used were their personal trademarks, and sometimes the customer's name was woven into the corner.

    A little history in this chart... Henry Adolph was a French weaver who settled in Iowa and wove until he died at age 92 in 1907. 36ct Linen with one shade of thread, this finishes approx 6 x 7 -- isn't this lovely???
  • To Quote Shakespeare - *And in a tedious sampler sewed her mind* Just goes to show that Shakespeare knew NOTHING... if he thought samplers were tedious! Another paper mache' box finishing treatment like Brenda's Seasons in Baltimore, stitch the outside band and mount the fun quote inside a 3-inch hoop - or make it into a cushion! Both designs are in this chart.
  • Merry Yuletide - Check out the font used for the lettering in this. It looks scribbled... but it is actually cross-stitched over one fabric thread! An Olde Worlde Santa with his snowman companion... maybe they're shopping for a Christmas Tree??? Offered as a chart, this is stitched on (anything you want but big in the pic!) 28ct linen in the shop. Our model makes an 11 x 18 pillow... Mona has started making an inside case of ticking that shows through the stitching linen... and it's a really cool look. Very sophisticated and fresh looking.
  • Essamplaire Petite Collection II -- Here are two different sets of 4 tiny samplers each. Models are on 40ct, and they finish about 2 inches each. You can work them on anything... they are small to begin with, so nothing will make them huge and gangly. Just sweet pieces that are fun for a medley of tiny framed samplers to all gather together on a wall... or a set of pin cushions in a basket... you decide.

Basketful of Spring from With Thy Needle & Thread - click for more CS294 Say You Have from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more
  • Basketful of Spring - What a pretty little design tucked so cleverly onto a linen pillow! (Pottery Barn has really pretty ready-made linen pillows...) This is actually just a tiny design stitched on 40ct Weeks Parchment linen in 6 shades of hand-dyeds. On that fine fabric, it measures approx 3 x 4. After stitching is complete you IRON it onto freezer paper, cut out the basket shape (this might be scary for us non-finishers!), and then applique (little tack stitches) onto the larger linen pillow fabric. Then... add the buttons and ribbons, and construct the pillow, complete instructions are included. A really pretty finishing treatment... something different for that pile of luscious pillows you are making!!!
  • Say You Have - This is a Cross-Stitcher's Confession! A play on words taken from *Keep Calm and Carry On.* The original poster was printed in 1939, and intended to raise the British people's morale in preparation for WWII. Brenda says the poster was rarely displayed in public and little was known about it until a copy was discovered in 2000 tucked within the pages of a book in a used bookshop... and as they say, the rest is history. She continues to explain that there was a crown above the wording on that poster from 1939, so she thought it would be fun to design this little 'Rippit Frog' guy, and give him that royal crown! So, her advice for 2021... The next time the Frog visits... no need to 'rippit' ... just fudge it and carry on! His little crown is silver metallic - Petite Treasure Braid PB04, check your stash, most any thin silver thread will be perfect to help carry on!

Marie Flavin 1872 by Reflets de Soie -- click to see more! Marie Flavin 1872
Here's another stunning antique sampler by Reflets de Soie. Just like some of her others -- this is presented in chart format. The border is different on three of the sides, color everywhere, lush alphabets and the motifs at the bottom are incredible.

This particular sampler has some religious-looking motfis... may be hard to see in the pic... but some of the others that seem to companion this piece have other florals you could sub. A reproduction of a sampler stitched in 1872... I hope some of my needlework stays gorgeous for 150 years, like this one has!

Victorine Chenevas-Paule 1869 by Reflets de Soie -- click to see more!
Victorine Chenevas-Paule 1869
A beautiful sampler - full of floral pots and borders. The stitch count for this is 262 x 242, so it will finish about 13 inches square on 40ct.

A lot of soft cremes and beige shades, it is coded for Silks (which we have) or DMC - ecru, 945, 415, 3813, 833, 522, 3362, 831, 543, 309, 842 and 732.

The individual urns would make gorgeous individual pin cushions. Presented as a full color chart with silks optional.

Can't you just smell the peanuts, popcorn and the hot dogs? Yummmm! It's time to play ball!

The Just Another Button Company buttons that garnish are *everywhere* in here... striped stars, the baseball, and all those little triangle flags -- those are buttons!

Family Fourth from the Fern Ridge Ladies - click to see more Family Fourth
Pat and Peggy have been super-creative these past few months dreaming up all sorts of cute new cases and Peyote Beaded Scissor Fobs! They are all due in the shop this week, and until i can get my hands on the actual kits - I cannot tell you fabrics and colors... so will fill in that info ASAP! The stitched cases are all completely kitted - finish about 3 x 6 and then fold. The completely kitted beaded fobs (which take between 3 and 4 hours to complete) are generally an inch and half log, BEFORE all that lavish beaded fringe they love to add. The kits are stuffed full of cool stuff... and they are including pretty good inside pics for your finishing info.
Family Fourth - Looks like a schoolhouse - I think the green beads on the fob are sculpted flower shapes!

Weeks and Classic Flosses, 32ct Fox and Rabbit Hogbristle.
  • Five Songbirds - An adaptation of part of Mercy Megginson's sampler- I see Adam and Eve on there, so I think it's part of the bottom area. Good colors, cute trims... Same fabric as the main sampler.
