October and Halloween are Coming - Housewives-Style!
Priscilla and Chelsea have traded their busy chickens and rabbits for cats and pumpkins as the seasons are changing. Due this week...
Presenting Jim Shore's 2021 Annual Santas and Snowmen!
Always super fun to stitch... Mill Hill is bringing us this year's 6 cute Santa and Snowmen by artist Jim Shore. Finishing about 3 x 4, each is stitched on 14ct perforated paper with lots of flosses and just a few glass beads. Cute faces, pretty colors and shading on the snowmen, they really look nice on your Christmas tree!
With Love and Miss B's Apiary
from Lila's Studio
Lila's Studio has two new releases to tempt your stitching fingers!
Halloween Alphabet A-B from Romy's Creations|
I believe this is the start of what promises to be a really cute set of halloween-themed pin cushion letters. No release details yet for more, but I imagine like a good potato chip nobody can design just A and B without devouring the rest of the alphabet! Presented in a chart, I like them because they are cohesive - same border, same letter font, and that fun little bit of nighttime sky with the stars and the moon.
So, here are A & B... lets keep our fingers crossed for more, but at least enjoy these two! Charted for Romy's own hand-dyed flosses (which we don't carry :( I think you can choose lovely threads from your stash and do a great job with these darling designs! Each measures 60 x 60 stitches.
Estate con gli Angeli (Beach Angels)
from Cuore e Batticuore
Here's a delightful set of Beachy-Summer Angels! We already have these as Springtime and Christmas Angels... and now here they are ready for a summer swim!
Stitch counts on each are 83 x 87, and they are worked with regular DMC floss. Pig-tails and dresses on the girls, striped and fishy wings on the boys... they are all cute! The chart has all 6 designs inside, Stitch them on just about any fabric you like best, as well!
Fright Night from Val's Stuff
Val's Stuff has a new ornament/magnet design... a scary little purple bat flying through the night sky RIGHT TO YOU!
Like the rest of her cute designs, this is done of 14ct perforated paper with bits of floss from your stash. She's provided the stitching paper and the backing felts, along with the two bitty green eye buttons. Cute and Quick!
The Grocery Store! from Little House Needleworks
This is building #22 in her Hometown Holiday Series! We didn't know we were going to get another design - Diane hasn't added to this set for quite some time - so this is a fun surprise! Offered in small chart format, you can stitch all of these as individual stand-up blocks and have a tiny village, or join some of them together for a long, skinny row of bustling businesses.
Same pretty color palette of classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses as the rest, it finishes approx 3 x 5. (We used to have an auto-ship for this series.. but had ended it when we thought charts were finished. So... if you collect this series, let us know and we'll get one right to you!) If you are new to this series, you're in for a treat browsing the other 21 you can pick and choose from! You'll have to scroll partway down her page to see these.
Sunday Stitches - Abide With Me.. and Now - When I Survey
from Heartstring Samplery
Heartstring Samplery's next in her set of 12 Church Hymns... each month, we are being treated to favorites. This measures 132 x 95, so finishes approx 8 x 6 on 32ct.
The colors this time are Campfire, Honeycomb, Green with Envy, Concord, Gunmetal and Loden. Each hymn is offered in its own separate chart so you can choose the ones special to you, or collect the whole set.
Join our monthly auto-ship, or just pick up your favorites as they come out.
New Releases from The Cricket Collection
from Cottage Garden Samplings
Don't you love this rooster on top of his glorious watermelon? This is actually design #7 of a 12-part on-going series of seasonals. I'm not sure you'd want to display the 12 together, because each is so different, but so far, they are all REALLY cool!
I think this rooster is in full command of his situation, and he's pretty proud of it! Finishing 6 x 8 on 32ct... you probably recognize some of the others in the set that have been released so far!
July, August & September - Rabbit-Style! from Ink Circles
Ink Circles continues her 12-part set of 3-inch pin cushion designs - all featuring rabbits! Each design is presented separately in its own chart (so you can collect all 12 or just choose the ones you like best) with a nice, clear picture of the finished product. They remind you of a kaliedoscope, because each rabbit is rotated and repeated - I am sure there is some geometric term for that - it really changes the look of each individual bunny and his flowers.
A super cute and colorful set of smalls, these are #7, 8 and 9... with the final three charts releasing in a few months. Our Lady Dot Creates finishing packs for these are not available yet, but such a time saver for finishing, they're worth waiting for while you're getting your stitching done!
New Releases from The Blue Flower
We were treated to two new designs at our recent Summer Stitching Retreat -- Jeannine was one of our guest designers -- and these two new things came along with her -- in addition to our exclusive class projects!
New Releases from Teresa Kogut
We were treated to EARLY RELEASE of two of Teresa's next patterns while she was here last week presenting at our Summer Event! I don't think the rest of the industry gets these for a couple of weeks, so we're thrilled to be able to present them now! Both are presented in booklet format with wire-spiral edging so you can open the charts flat to stitch from them.
Jack O Lantern Jubilee from With Thy Needle & Thread Has Arrived!
Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle is releasing a fun new collection of Halloween pin cushions! Presented in leaflet format - like Jelly Bean Jubilee - this is a set of 6 cushions - all stitched with various hand-dyed flosses.
Colors used are 3771, 3778, Onyx, Oscar, Pelican Gray, Ultraviolet, Pumpkin, Putty, Carrot, Gold Leaf, Fragrant Cloves, Grecian Gold, Brandy, Avocado, Eggshell, Gingerbread, Hickory Sticks and Copper Penny.
Fabric shown is R & R's 40ct Brenda's Brew. NOTE! we have just received another 11 yards of 40ct Brenda's Brew, and are selling fat quarters. What a fun collection of smalls!
When I Think of September from PuntiniPuntini
Paola continues her cute set of months dressed with one of her cute hand-made clay buttons. September has arrived... and as my employees will tell you. Back to School was never a favorite time of mine, so gosh drinking the wine there in the pic looks pretty good to me!
The designs have been fun so far, all are pictured on our Puntini page so you can check them out. Paola is a one-woman-show for her darling clay buttons and pins. A trip down her page of embellishments is AS GOOD as the wine, and in my opinion, BETTER than going back to school!
Counting is Hard and Midsummer Song from Luminous Fiber Arts
Two new designs by Misty Pursel of Luminous Fiber Arts
Two New Charts and a Kit from Chessie & Me
New Heart in Hand Arrivals
from Primrose Cottage Stitches
This is rather tall and skinny design stitched with just a few DMC and hand-dyed flosses, on a light gray background. With a stitch count of 59 x 300, you have lots of chances to jazz this up a bit with some beads and metallics, some specialty frizzy threads, and then add a few buttons if you like.
Designed by Lindsey Weight, it is reminiscent of Lizzie Kate's Rules, who knew that there would be EVEN MORE RULES to follow... but here they are! Presented in a leaflet.
The 2021 Just Cross Stitch Magazine Annual Halloween Issue is Here!... and Christmas is Coming!
Arriving Mid-July! New Treats from Hands On Design!
We're finished with July 4th, so it's ON TO HALLOWEEN! Cathy Haberman has introduced several new designs:
Signs of the Season from Hands On Designs
This is a new 3-chart set of designs. Trick or Treat, Toil & Trouble, and Hocus Pocus are all in the first chart. You can see from the pic that Cathy is giving us TWO DIFFERENT colorway options for stitching these. You can use the ever-popular dark chalkboard gunmetal fabric, or lighten it up a little with Weeks Dye Works Confederate Gray material instead.
Stitched with Weeks Dye Works flosses, we have two different color assortment options, depending on which way you go. Designs are 63 x 55 in stitch count, so 3 x 4-ish on 32 ct. If you are frugal with your fabric, you can get all nine on a fat quarter of material... but if that worries you, just get a half (but it's twice the $$!) The final 2 charts - with the other 6 designs in the set - will release at the end of August, so there is plenty of stitching time before Halloween. We'll do an auto-ship for the last charts... get fabrics and threads now, or wait a little!
It Came With The House from Hands On Designs
The second design in Cathy's Kitchen Counter mini-series... it's the next cute thing you can stitch for your kitchen... instead of cooking! Offered as a single chart, you are collecting the Measure Up design shown here, too!
Each of the three KC charts has a part of this design in them - as a little bonus. All cute, all fun, all easy to stitch!
If Pumpkins Could Fly from Hands On Designs
If Pumpkins Could fly... Up in the sky, I'd ride with you and shout out BOO!
Isn't that the cutest verse?
I love everything about this... the main piece measures 115 x 74 - around 5 x 7, and the little ornament is about 3 x 4. Stitched on 32ct Platinum Belfast linen - it's a good neutral background color... and notice the fun rik-rak and fabric trim in the framed piece? By Lady Dot Creates, the trim color is Jack. Offered in a single chart.
Mom's Kitchen... Our July 2021 Secret Needle Night Kit
This has now sold out. Thanks! Click through to see more about our monthly Secret Needle Night kits!
Our Secret Needle Night design for July is retro and just plain fun! I chose a color palette of aqua, a dusty blue, buttermilk yellow and that orange-y red that all seem to 'say the year 1950!' It's funny now though, because the 'cool' mixers look like this again, and plug-in coffee pots are 'correct' again too!
Lots of #5 Pearl cotton on 18ct linen, a breeze to stitch with, you'll finish this in a jiff! Complete kit comes with chart, linen, threads and needle.
Two New Designs from Milady's Needle
I had never heard of Milk Jam, but this is the recipe! It turns out that milk jam is the name for a boiled-down carmelized milk-sugar mixture that is used as a food and ingredient. Milk jam is used as a spread and as an ingredient for making desserts such as pudding, flan or ice cream. It is also often used as a filling for cakes.
191 stitches x 180 stitches, 13 x 13 on 28 count.
Saltwater Scrapbook part 2 from Lindy Stitches and The Blue Flower
This part 2 of a collaboration with The Blue Flower. Five little pin cushions 3" square on 40 count fabric. Stitch count is 61 x 61 each.
This is a delightful set of small designs - all with a seaside/saltwater theme. Jeannine's favorite squirrels are building sandcastles... and that octopus really loves his beach house! The back cover of this chart shows all 9 smalls stitched together. Coded for DMC.
New from Mill Hill!
Pretty Mandala Quartet and the new Antique Keys Trilogy Designs will be ready to ship right after July 4th! The frames shown on the packages are available by special order from us.
Blackberry Lane's Sugared Gumdrops Gingerbread House is here!
Sugared Gumdrops - Marie Driskill's charming companion to Peppermint Candy Cottage is HERE! Sugared Gumdrops is an intricate stitched house full of color, and even some over-one design details. Worked on Picture This Plus's 32ct hand-dyed Gingerbread linen - with 'just' 43 (!) different shades of DMC floss, the cottage finishes approx 4 by 4-3/4. Marie has added over-one details inside the windows - Santa and Mrs are in there, you can see the tree... and on the back of the house the little elf that is steering the sled is done over one as well! Absolutely enchanting!
The chart comes with some really cool sugared gumdrop beads for your ornament hanger, and there is a separate button packet available that includes the nine gumdrop embellishments featured. Just stunning - offered as a chart.
from Barbara Ana
Dreaming Frida is a companion to Dreaming Girl. She has words in her hair that say "Viva la Vida." She has all sorts of things in her dreams... keys dangling... a cute little kitty and some cactus, some fun stylized mountains... and even a little hilltop village... probably all her favorite things she's dreaming about!
The model shown on the chart cover is finished into a fabric pouch, and it is stunning. What a fun bag to use when YOU are dreaming of your travels! The stitch count is 125 x 63. Stitched on 32 count Country Vintage Mocha, she is 9" x 4."
The Beach is my Happy Place
from Serenila di Campagna
A mama seagull and her babies play among shells, starfish and other things left on the beach. I think I even see a message in the bottle! Dusty, gorgeous, restfull... it belongs at the waterfront!
Charted for DMC threads, the stitch count is 187 x 119 (12 x 7.5 on 32 ct). The instructions are in Italian, French and English.
Here are the 4 newest releases from JBW Designs
Marquoir aux 36 Oiseaux, Leonie-Marie Delorine 1905, and Le Marquoir de Marie-Andree from Reflets de Soie
Reflets de Soie has three new samplers to tempt your stitching fingers! Directly from Paris, France... each is presented in leaflet format with clear charts. Coded for both silks and DMC flosses...
A Changed World and Caroline Suffling 1848 from The Scarlett House
Tanya Brockmeyer of The Scarlett House has two new releases that she debuted at our Silver Needle Stitching Event this past weekend! I couldn't put them up until she was on her way home - they were our surprise for the weekend!
Hip Hip Hooray
from AB Designs'
This is a fun design to celebrate every day - not just July 4th! Amy's 4 little sheep look like cheerleaders - the little blue one is waving his flag!
Make a stand-up, or use her pillow finishing idea... she's chosen Weeks Tin Roof linen for this, and used Classic Colorworks flosses with DMC conversions. Cute and quick - I even like just the 4 sheep by themselves!
The Old Mill
from Foxwood Crossings
Foxwood Crossings has a new sled design that can be framed or split and mounted on her MEDIUM-sized sleds. The little sled designs are worked on 14ct perforated paper - I see that she is mixing Weeks Dye Works Sky and Navy to achieve the look of the Picture This Plus hand-dyed Twilight linen used on the bigger piece. (a really good trick to simulate the hand-dyed fabric background!)
Anyway, cute designs that make wonderful tree ornaments and cute holiday decorations, they take very little time to stitch and finish in a FLASH! When youi visit the Foxwood page, there are TONS of offerings on there... if you are confused as to which design fits on which size of sled or sleigh... just call us... we can make sure you get the correctly-sized parts for your pieces!
Des Couleurs dans mon Jardin
from Jardin Prive
I think that says 'The Colors of the Garden' doesn't it? I don't need words to convey how pretty this little piece is! Stitched on Waterlily or Star Sapphire Linen, choose your count, it'll finish approx 6 x 6.
Coded for 11 shades of DMC, I love everything about those 20 x 20 stitched squares. Make them individually into cushions... add clay bee buttons instead of stitching the bees, use #8 Pearl Cotton for the white lacy borders to give it texture, make the sheep wooley - this is just the sweetest piece with pretty soft coloring. It's very small, delightfully so, and offered as a chart.
New Designs by Hello from Liz Matthews
Mill Hill's 2021 Annual Charmed Santas (The 23rd Annual Set!) and Charmed Ornaments
More fun beaded and stitched ornaments for your tree this year... we've noticed that Mill Hill isn't using a lot of beads this year... we think COVID and supply are the issue! So... GET OUT your stash of old finished kits - seems nobody can toss those little leftover bags of extra beads - and rescue these with more beads!
Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher Magazine - 2021 Summer Issue
We love this magazine! 98 Super-heavy and glossy colored pages (don't you just love opening these up, closing your eyes, and smelling that yummy ink and paper?1) packed with 13 Punch Needle projects and 12 Cross Stitch pieces. This issue's Vonnie Pfeiffer finishing section is an 8-page spread for 'mattress' pin cushion assembly.
Featured designers in here are Rovaris, Shakespeare's Peddler, Teresa Kogut, Blue Flower, Barbara Ana, Lindy Stitches, Stitching With the Housewives... the list goes on and on. Darling projects, full sized pics and templates, BEAUTIFUL pictures... everything with a summer or patriotic theme. Do not read this in the bathtub... you run the risk of dropping it in the water, and it's too awesome to get wet!
God Bless America, Bristol Berries II, Mermaid Crossing and Summertime Berries from Erica Michaels
Linda Stolz has 4 new releases...
from Fairy Wool in the Wood
Here is a fun design that is made up of 8 smaller insets. Stitched on 36ct Country Vintage Mocha Linen (any count will do) it finishes 8 x 12.
Coded for DMC, this is a perfect design to break up and finish into individual pin cushions for a fun basket or tray display. Super charming that way... you get glimpses of a seafaring family and life at the beach!
New Arrivals from Plum Street Samplers.
Paulette has been busy creating... so here are her latest new treats!
Christmas is Coming - According to Mill Hill! Our 2021 Annual Christmas Kits are here!
The Winter Series of the larger 5 x 5 designs offers a stuffed cookie jar - full of yummy baked treats; a bear with a exploding head (The Holidays can do that to you sometimes!); Santa totally wiped out on his couch on Christmas Night - I love the Big Dipper in the sky! Next is a winter bike scene - it's a challenge to ride a bike in the ice and snow... but it's does present a pretty picture! Christmas Break features a fun window scene, and Cafe Grande is the latest in their charming Christmas Village set of houses, businesses, and churches. We carry that entire line of Village kits... I think there are 2 dozen in the Christmas series, and a dozen each in the Spring and Fall Villages - and we have 'em all! These kits all include the chart, needles, DMC flosses, Mill Hill beads and a MH button, and they are all worked on 14ct perforated paper. Use the paper for our little sled ornaments if you want, and do these on 14 or 28ct fabric as an option.
The Smaller Winter Holiday Collection continues Mill Hill's hundreds and hundreds of 3 x 3 ornament designs. The kits come with a magnet backing so you can stick them on a filing cabinet or the fridge... but most cut these out around the edges and use them as Christmas tree Ornaments. Cute as can be, this year we have a rocking reindeer, a pretty snail-mail Christmas Card, a swirly tree, a puppy mailing his letter to Santa, a puppy paw - you might want to attach your doggie's pic to the back of this one... make it a momento, and a perky little fox. Each of these comes with the chart, paper, beads, a glass Treasure embellishment, the magnet backer, and DMC floss. Lots of fun to keep you stitching!
from Twin Peak Primitives
Smell the Sea and feel the Sky - just don't get sand in your stitching bag! This is kind of a fun piece by Twin Peak Primitives... I see three bands of design in here... so lots of possibilities. The top row features spools of thread with those shorebirds, bitty cabanas and the fishermen on them. Notice the clothesline there with the scissors and needles on it? (and the bitty swimsuit!) The crabs are super cute, and the row of whales down below just makes it a busy sea-scene.
Presented as a leaflet, the stitch count is 170 x 119 - so 10-1/2 x 7-/12 on 16/32ct, and it calls for regular DMC floss. Easy to add some hand-dyeds , you could do the crabs in metallic, or the tiny swimming fish... or add buttons here and there if your stash 'overfloweth!'
Vintage Postcards from Sajou
We have assortments of needlework-related postcards to make into thread palettes! Our sets of 6 - 4 x 5-3/4 - stiff cardboard cards are all one-of-a-kind, and feature antique needlework ads and pictures of vintage needlework tools.
Just beautiful, punch holes on one edge and make thread cards... or just enjoy them as-is anywhere you want. Inside a sewing case is fun... they are framing-quality... you could frame a few. Include them in a needlework shadow-box display, you could always mail them to friends! They'd be pretty in travel photo collages... just don't decide they are 'too pretty to use!' Packs of 6 cards each... fun and unique... from Sajou of Paris, France.
New Designs Have Arrived from Jeannette Douglas
4 Small stitching projects, and we love them all!
New Punch Needle Arrivals from Teresa Kogut
Stitching is My Happy Hour and Happy When Stitching

New Patrioics from Heartstring Samplery - Due Any Day!
Acts of Kindness Pinkeep
from Scattered Seed Samplers
Isn't this a sweet thing? A small 3-1/2 x 5 cushion, it is stitched with either DMC or hand-dyeds.
Gentle Art Simply Wools would be awesome on this as well - make those bunnies a little furry. Can you see that tiny bunny on there bringing the big rabbit the tulip? Offered as a chart.
Brightly Colored Needle Tins!
Don't you just want to soak up all these colors? Magnetic Needle Tins complete with matching Stitch Dots... each measures 1 x 3 x less than 1/2 an inch.
Lids slide off... just a great way to store needles.
Presenting Red White & Bloom from With Thy Needle & thread
Brenda Gervais has released info about her next set of *seasonal smalls* - they companion Love Notes and Jelly Bean jubilee. Red White and Bloom includes a Lady Liberty, Uncle Sam, busy little bumbler bees, cheery sunflowers and even a family of eagles. All the designs are small, but Brenda promises that they'll make a big statement when you display them together in a tray or basket. (She says it is delightfully fun to find little trinkets and decorations to include with the cushions because it really makes your stitching POP!)
All garden-y in theme, Lady Liberty has sunflowers as tall as she is, Sam is fashioned to look like a garden Whirli-gig, and his hat is even a planter. A bunting-draped watering can is home to a another sunflower, and the Mom and Dad eagles are perched and waiting for a festive party! Lots of the same colors of flosses are called for in both patterns, so no need to buy more thread. (Onyx, Pea Coat, Red Rocks, Grits, Oscar, Pamlico, Blue Suede, Grecian Gold, 611, 712, 3771 and 3778.
Happy Birthday America! from With Thy Needle & thread
Brenda Gervais is previewing another little chart design - a miniature stitched birthday cake to America - featuring a very festive eagle! (But... you could finish this as a small pin cushion as well.) Measuring just 3-1/2 inches round on 36ct linen, it is stitched with bits of DMC floss and hand-dyeds of Grits, Palomino, Loden, Pea Coat, Red Rocks, Blue Suede and Grecian Gold.
Brenda is supplying her alphabet-printed linen you see on the drum sides in the chart. The featured trim is by Lady Dot - Vintage Mini Pom, which is available separately. The chart gives sources for the 2 x 4 cardboard 'cake box' form, and the candle-stick wooden 'cake plate' base. Brenda says her finishing instructions will give you a 'prefectly-shaped cake with no wonky bumps or lumps... super easy, and no sewing machine required!'
Fun New Hand-Embroidered Dish Towels from Bareroots
Oh gosh these are so much fun to stitch... you transfer on the design, and then just regular straight stitching with a few Lazy Daisies... and PRESTO... a pretty towel nobody wants to use!
But DO use them, they are nice towels, and they'll make you feel good! Towels come with the pattern to transfer on (use our Sulky Stick 'n Stitch transfer film), the flosses and rik-rak for the edge trims.
Wow... We have a new shipment of FLAX for Spring and Summer 2021!
Last year was kind of a 'bust' for needing fun and new clothing... we really missed going to Market to see the new lines. (Welllll, there WAS no Market and there was no new) But Spring is here... we're getting our feet wet again, and filling a few of our racks with some bright Azure Blue, andMagenta!
We have three colors of cotton/linen denim Jean Jackets, and some super-fun green and soft lavender stripe pieces. I didn't get a lot, just enough to freshen and excite! A few pictures here, all the details, colors, sizes, etc are on our FLAX page. Go take a peek if it interests you!
Presenting 18ct Perforated Paper by
by Mill Hill
This is a new size of paper for stitching. 14ct Perf Paper has been around for over 150 years... but this 18ct is NEW! Perfectly sized for the Petite seed beads, it comes only in white right now.
Truthfully, we have no hints as to upcoming designs... but that's no reason not to have any! Something fun and new... 2 strands of floss would work on this... see what's in your stash to try on this! Comes packaged just like the 14ct - two 9 x 12 sheets - for $5.00
Bakers Gonna Bake...
from New York Dreamer
In the Summer too! Another cute rolling pin design by New York Dreamer, I guess bakers live everywhere... even the waterfront!
Presented as a chart, 75 x 160... 32ct, it calls for either DMC or hand-dyed flosses. Cute!
Baked With Love
from New York Dreamer
This is a stitched rolling pin cover! It has little valentine cookies on it, along with sugar and flour and it says *Baked With Love.* Stitched on 16/32ct with DMC or hand-dyeds, it's actually pretty cute, and will fit around a classic 18-inch rolling pin.
I do have to share... when I opened The Silver Needle 37 years ago - in 1984 - I carried little Aida cloth blanks to stitch and cover wooden rolling pins! We sold a TON of them. So here I am, 37 years later, still at it I guess! This chart is a little expensive though... be aware of that, but otherwise... what a fun gift for a baker!
Sea Box from Rovaris
Oh Look - Livia's Limited Edition Sea Tray!
New supply has arrived!
*Sea* is stitched in the middle of this charming 5 x 7-ish stitched medley of underwater critters and foliage. Seahorses, a crab, and a big octopus... it's a busy little underwater scene.
Along with the chart, you get this cool 7 x 7 x 2-ish inch wooden tray. It features that display area for your stitched cushion, and three holes to hold your needlework implements.
Livia is including the striped finishing fabric you see, and a bunch of cute seaside charms that are dangling there off the cushion. The two included wood tools supplied are one seam ripper and one frogger.
Fun Needlework Accessories from Sampling of Memories
These Scissor, Thread and Needle Keepers feature vintage artwork from ads by DMC and Sajou. Dressed up a little with a mini-stork scissor charm, each metal square measures 1-inch in size. Pretty little do-dads to have! We'll send a combo of the two or make them match - if you have a preference for one of the other, please let us know in the order form's comments box.
Boardwalk Revue, Bunny Rabbit, Bee Bungalow, Acorns Among Us, and Love You This Much
from Fern Ridge Collections
The Fern Ridge ladies - Pat and Peggy - have been busy during the lock-down BEADING their fingers off! We have 5 new Peyote Beaded Fobs to prove it and 4 matching stitched needle cases! The fobs are always the showy-glitzy half of the sets, so I am cheating here and showing you the glamour and sparkle. Our models will be finished in a few weeks - at which point I'll have much more fun pics to show you, but for now... here we go!
Each of the fobs comes as its own complete kit. I have taken P & P's classes at market, and can tell you that (once you get past the first three rows of the Peyote!).... it is super-fun and the neatest thing to do. (You cannot do these in the car!) You hold this in your hand to create...and you work from the straight bottom edge up to the pointed top.
P & P present these as either a color chart to follow (I like that) or a page of horrible run-on numbers that knitters love - and know how to follow! It's just so funny to see how different minds follow instructions! So, you finish the (approx 1-1/2 inches) of flat beading, attach the top decorations and scissor clip. Then, you get to string all the flashy and cool beads all along the bottom to make that one or two-inch fringe. They give you the actual bead pictures in the instructions, so you know what (pre-labeled) beads go where. The most challenging part of the fringe is keeping the finished strands out of the way of the one you're stringing! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the finished products... I'm just so impressed with myself for making them!
The 2021 Annual Mill Hill Autumn Bead Kits Have Released!|
Wow, Plenty of time to work on these before the frigid Fall temps hit! Mill Hill has sent their collections of small 3 x 3 and larger 5 x 5 beaded-on-paper designs that are perennial favorites!
Mill Hill's Autumn 2021 Button & Bead Kits are Here!
Complete kits of chart, 14ct perforated paper, DMC flosses, needles and Mill Hill beads and buttons, these are a great value. Witch's Brew features a black fat cat button; Playful Cat has a bumble bee button. Spooky Gate is definitely our shop favorite - it features a skinny black cat button - and all those fantastic colors in the sky. Outdoor Adventure and Autumn Swing remind us of the great outdoors (and bugs in Oklahoma!), and Floral Pumpkin is inspiration for my front porch decorations! Each finishes about 5 x 5... and if you want to substitute linen for them - choose 28ct. We assemble our shop models into little hanging pillows.
2021 Autumn Harvest Collection from Mill Hill
These are the little 3 x 3 ornament-sized designs that are fun on your Christmas tree - or finished as magnets to cling to your frig or file cabinet. Complete kits of 14ct perforated paper, you get the paper, chart, beads and threads, along with the needles. The little moon is cute - it matches the bigger pumpkin from last year. Rosie Racoon is darling! Fall Flamingo goes with the summer one we already have! Pumpkin Delivery is ready for the Guiness Book of World Records - that pumpkin must weigh a ton! Fall Fun has a sign to the corn maze, and Halloween Owl has that spindly little spider friend!
Rose Cottage Sampler Pinkeep and Holly Basket Sewing Roll from Stacy Nash Primitives
Stacy Nash has more neat designs that have just released...
Presenting Caroline Amelia Trowell
from With Thy Needle & thread
Brenda Gervais his released a new sampler reproduction! Originally stitched by 10-yr old Caroline - a shepherd's daughter. Brenda tells us about Caroline, her family, where she lived and the significance of some of the motifs she chose for her sampler. The are photos of the original antique sampler in the leaflet as well.
Packed with sweet motifs, there are 3 'sections' to this... lots of opportunity for small cushion take-outs... and a pretty sawtooth border.
Stitched on 40ct hand-dyed linen by Seraphim, we have SEVERAL color options by Seraphim in various counts... so I am sure we can find you something lovely. Brenda uses a medley of DMC solids and Weeks hand-dyed flosses.
New Arrivals from Accoutrements
Wow... I need these Ruby slippers to transport me to the seashore so I can enjoy the palm trees and flamingos! Jeweled need minders with super-duper strong magnets attached... you can always find a place for another one of these! The flamingo is 3 inches tall, but the rest are smaller - an inch or two at best. Just love 'em all!
Lobstah Dinnah Ornament
from The Elegant Thread
This is the CUTEST thing! By The Elegant Thread, stitch this cute little red lobster - he's 2 x 3 - and put him inside his mesh cage - he's ready to bring home for dinner! (Or you can hang him on your Christmas Tree, or perch him somewhere in your kitchen!)
Presented as a complete kit, you are stitching him over one thread on 22ct hand-dyed aqua blue linen. It's a pretty coarse weave, so it's not hard to see. Next, sew him together into a little pillow - the red and cream checkered backing fabric and interfacing are included. Then, roll the plastic mesh - included - into his trap, tie him inside there with the bit of included twine... and you're finished! This is SO creative and cute... I'm in the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma... I've never set lobster traps in my life, but even I know this is *a winnah!*
Creepy Pumpkin Stackers
from Praiseworthy Stitches
Wow. this is a creative way to finish your stitching! Pam and Susan have designed three various-sized stitched pumpkins and then shown you how to finish/assemble them for a cute stacking Halloween display. The feature is the ANTIQUE WOODEN SPOOL they are stacked around! You can choose any three colors of fabric you like for your pumpkins - they tell you how to adjust the templates if you change from the 32ct Weeks Chestnut, Tiger's Eye and Cappucino choices used.
Stitching is done with Weeks, Gentle Art and Kreinik threads, with some Mill Hill beads and a JABCO spider button. (You can get creative from your stash with creepies to embellish this too!) Next, assemble the pumpkins - you are leaving the centers open - and then placing them over the spool to stand up! FOR NOW the antique spools are included with the charts - so neat!
Be Kind Sampler
from Stacy Nash Primitives
Be kind to one another, this is a world of care and there is enough of needful woe for every one to bear. An old verse with Stacy's new border design and big house.
Finishes about 8 x 10 - probably 36ct Weeks Cocoa - and it uses Weeks hand-dyed cottons of Oscar, Baked Apple, Battleship, Cherub, Charcoal, Straw, Oilcloth, Confederate Gray and Sanguine.
Sea Life by Laurel Burch for Mill Hill
Oh gosh, I NEED to buy a beach house so I can stitch these kits, and have a place to display them! The newest releases by Mill Hill featuring the artwork of Laurel Burch, these are FULL of color and whimsey! Presented as full kits of chart, a smattering of Mill Hill glass seed beads, DMC flosses, and needles, each is worked on 14ct Tropical Blue Aida... so brilliant and gorgeous!
Don't be turned off by the Aida (vs linen or paper)... it is easy to see, sturdy for the beads, and just plain fun to work on! Each design finishes approx 5 x 7 and there are frames available for them as well.
from Samplers Not Forgotten
Samplers Not Forgotten has released a new pin cushion design - a pretty heart-shaped floral - stitched in pale rose and moss hand-dyed cottons.
Fully kitted, it is stitched on 36ct Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed linen with Weeks flosses. The featured lace trim and ribbon for the finishing is by Lady Dot. The kit includes the chart, linen, threads, trims, the charm and the backing fabric - which you can get a glimpse of in the background of our pic. What a pretty piece!
by Heart's Ease Examplar Workes
This has been one of Theresa Baird's exclusive class pieces that is now available in chart format. Just a gorgeous piece, Theresa's inspiration came from a Betty Ring sampler that sold at a Sotheby's auction for over a million dollars in 2012.
She was enchanted by the mansion with the cedar trees, the barnyard with the animals, the young lady sitting straight and proud atop a horse, the farmhouse on the hill, and the flanking baskets of fruits and flowers.
It measures 257 x 355, and is worked in silks. The chart is 38 pages... it is full of stitch diagram detail, and actual close-up pics of some areas. Not for the faint of stitcher - not the quickest stitch either! Just an EXQUISITE needlework design to tantalize the brave!
2021 Collector's Heart from Heart in Hand
Heart in Hand has released this year's Collector heart kit - and it's real cute!

Cecelia is retiring all the rest of her previous Collector Heart kits. She's designed them for years, but fabrics come and go, and continually kitting over the years gets complicated!

Any year not listed here is already sold out and retired. Clicking the link above will take you to a grouping of all of the Collector's Hearts.
Yes, there's even MORE!
