Judy Whitman has 7 new small card designs - one for Halloween, and six for Christmas. Three are shown here... click through to see the rest. Everything can be stitched over one or two threads on your fabric choice, and remember that when stitching the monochromatic designs - you CAN swap out thread and fabric colors if you want!

The bitty wooden sled designs are cute... you have to paint the wooden sleds yourself... these are green. In years past, we have had red. The mini-stockings continue Judy's series of Christmas Carols, they make cute ornaments. If the designs feature embellishments, our card charts include them. A nice selection of small designs to finish in a jiff.


Halloween Week from Madame Chantilly Halloween Week from Madame Chantilly
Here's a cute little piece with a lot of small design elements that you can pull out and stitch individually. Glass jars... each features either a yummy desert, little witch, scared cat or that skull. You can put them on the shelf with the keys and greenery, or leave off the shelf and add the checkerboarded details. Those ghosts are so darn cute, too.

The front of the chart has one pic, while the back features it stitched differently - so you can do a lot with this! Worked on 32ct gray linen, the individual jars are about 30 x 40, the ghosts are about 20 x 20, and everything just begs to be finished into a whole set of little pin cushions or ornaments for a Halloween tree!

Lead a Quiet Life and Friendly Blooms from October House
A pair of cheerful designs by October House, they are presented as charts and are coded for either DMC or hand-dyed flosses.
  • Lead a Quiet Life hints at a garden with lush growing rows... butterflies and a little breeze. It finishes a generous 14 x 5 on 32ct.
  • Friendly Blooms is just that - something to stitch for your friend! She'll love it; it finishes only 3 x 6-1/2 on 32ct. I think you could toss initials onto it somewhere as well.

#5 and #6 from AB Designs' 2020 Warm Wooly Welcome Stitch Along - click for more Warm & Wooly Welcomes from AB Designs
We are in the middle of a set of 12 'Warm & Wooly' monthly sheep by AB Designs. Pictured here are #5 and #6. Very creatively named, these two celebrate October and November. You can see the whole collection when you click on the pic here. Count back 4 months, and you can see we started with July with the color key and the design words.

Now the tricky part. We are sending two charts every two months... they began with July, so will end with May and June next March! And if you can keep that straight... your brain is as sharp as your needle! The color key for the whole set is in the first design... so you can't really get just pieces and parts of this... you have to get all 12 sheep.

To make a long story short... if you like them, we'll send you the six that exist so far, the color key, (we'll catch you up thus far) and automatically send you the rest of the set as they release into next year. Easy-breezy... join the auto-ship, and you don't have to remember another thing, we'll take care of it! Coded for DMC, each little sheepy is about 3 x 3, whole piece is 10 x 13-ish.

Christmas is Coming - Brought to us by Stitching With The Housewives
Well, if cooler weather is coming... maybe snow won't be too far off either... and snow means SANTA! Priscilla and Chelsea have three new designs coming the first week of October!
  • Up on the Housetop features Santa in his sleigh. Only his reindeer are CHICKENS, and the farm truck is bringing the sleigh-overloads! Finishing about 9 inches square, choose any dark chalkboard-colored fabric you can see on to stitch this charming scene.
  • Candy Cane Coop is possibly where those 'reindeer-chickens' roost! Peppermint trees and shrubery, gingerbready colors, the featured brown color is Classic Colorworks' Brown Sugar thread. Finishing 5 x 5.
  • December's Truckin' Along has gingham Christmas trees, and finally some of the cutest little actual reindeer in there! Bright, fun Christmas colors... even a tiny scissor fob or ornament with just a light bulb or little deer would be cute!
  • Jolly Claus and Merry Mrs Claus - Each of these two measure 3 x 4 stitched on a 14/28ct. You could stitch everyone's name on them instead of Merry and Jolly... or stitch a little holiday greeting of your choice!

Sweet Summer, Come Again
from Blackbird Designs
Barb and Alma's latest new release... this is a sweet berry basket with matching bird pin cushion.

The basket design measures just 59 x 58, (3-1/4 inches on 36ct Wren) while the bird is even smaller 2-1/2 inches - at 46 x 45 stitches! Grab a few hand-dyeds from your stash, and whip these up!

The Owls of October II -- Due in the Shop October 1st
from Just Nan!
*When the night turns black and the moon shines yellow...* Here come 4 intense owls from Just Nan, each coordinating, but stitched with different colors on their bodies and wings, and wild eyes!

The first Owls of October were released in 2011... it's time for more! Six designs in the chart, you get the 4 owls along with the top and bottom panel designs. If you aren't a 'cube finisher,' consider making a set of individual pin cushions... these little guys would be spectacular peeking out of a bowl of little stitched cushions!

Worked on 32ct Vintage Country Mocha Linen with DMC, the chart includes beads, black decorative pins for the corners, bronze beads for cube 'feet' and cardboard cube base.

DMC Actual-Swatch Color Cards - click to see more BACK IN STOCK! DMC Actual-Swatch Color Cards
This is a comprehensive listing of DMC threads, the color numbers, and the listing of what color is manufactured in what weights of thread. (floss vs pearls 3, 5, 8 and 12.) It features pretty blocks of actual flosses all lined up in color family, so you can see how all the colors blend with each other. The varigated and metallics are also in here.

Use this to reference colors, help choose colors for your projects, match label-less threads... all sorts of stuff! For years DMC wasn't manufacturing these cards - too labor-intensive I guess. All we were getting were printed cards - not the same as the REAL threads in there - so these are wonderful, and we're happy!

Pepperberry's Halloween Lucky 13 - The Halloween Lollipop Series from Pepperberry Designs
We have all 13 charts in this fun set now. All are stitched on weeks Dye Works linens of Chartreuse, Pumpkin, Sky or Peoria Purple, with DMC, Weeks hand-dyeds and a few metallics tossed in. Each finishes about 4 or 5 inches in size on 32ct. The contour shape on the finishing treatment lets you concentrate on the designs without too much extra fabric showing. They've trimmed them all in the same edging... you could change that if you want... and all of them are stuck onto sticks - like little lollipops.

I'm thinking they need to be poked into a big 'ol bowl of candy... but I'm not sure the candy would last to hold them up! A real cute collection... choose just a few favorites if you don't think you can finish them all!

Little Biscornus from Tiny Modernist
Here are 4 more recent arrivals in the shop that join Tiny Modernist's cute collection of biscornu-shaped pin cushions. Presented in small card-charts, each is a fun 4-sided design that features a bonus 'backside corner' treatment motif as well.

The little skunks for instance.... you get the main design, then the little mushrooms (charted on the bias, which is no small feat!) for the backside of your cushion! The Donkeys get a little matching flower pot, and the sloths get more greens to eat! Super different and charming themes... these started out as fantasy subjects - unicorns, fairies, dragons and gnomes - but now we are getting not-so-common animals too! (15 years ago, I rode the donkeys down the hill in Santorini - instead of taking the bus!)

New Curly Girl Designs for 2020!
Oh we love these whimsical and uplifting designs! Joining our collection of 30 or so... here are the 4 newest ones. Presented by Mill HIll, each is charted for cross stitch and features a few small smatterings of glass seed beads. They all include DMC floss, and yummy colors of 28ct linen for the stitching.

  • Little Dirt - is SO Colorful! *In life, as in most things, for best results, you have to get a little dirt under your nails.* This linen is the soft Star Sapphire color.
  • Home is a Shelter - A lovely piece to hang in your foyer, or kitchen, or family room! *This home is a shelter for those we hold dear, wishing Peace to all who enter here.* Linen in this one is a soft dusty green.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner!... Our September 2020 Secret Needle Night Kit
Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I KNOW this little settlement scene, complete with the Mayflower is very historically in-accurate, but with the way 2020 has gone... it's OK! When I charted my little ship, and got it all stitched, I realized the wind in the sails have it going AWAY from the dock! (instead of sailing in for dinner!) Oh well... I guess family has had enough - of whatever - and they're leaving!

The kit contains our chart, 18ct linen and all the threads needed for the fun stitch. Measuring 40 x 70, you can make a flat little stand-up or the cute circular drum.

Months of the Year from Little House Needleworks - click to see more

Months of the Year from Little House Needleworks
This is a complete chart collection of 12 monthly designs - all measuring 70 x 70 in stitch count - and all just as cute as can be!

The front of the chart makes reference to 'former thread pack sets, now available without thread' on the cover... so this must be something that we missed when previously released! (Who knows? The copyright date is 2020.) Each design is charming, and coded for Classic Colorworks hand-dyed floss.

Stitch it all as one, or assemble into a set of stitched blocks - you could stitch all 6 sides and have fun turning your little cubes around in that filled bowl of bowl filler cushions! Anyway, all 12 charts in here, hand-dyed flosses are probably already in your stash, but we can send more if you need them!

The Autumn 2020 Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher Magazine - click to see more
The Fall 2020 Issue of Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher Magazine is here... and it's TERRIFIC!
Wow... this quarter's issue is packed full of 10 punch needle projects and 11 cross stitch designs - all beautifully presented on 91 thick, glossy, and colorful pages! Stitching with the Housewives has a Fall sunflower barn in here... Heart in Hand has a piece. Vonna Pfeiffer has a 5-page spread in here taking Brenda Gervais's Spirits and Spells oval Halloween design into a quilted berry finishing - who'd have thought to do that!? Teresa Kogut has a cool star shaped punch needle piece with a pumpkin in the center... and Barbara Ana has the cutest little Trick or Treat cat in here!

Always full-sized templates for everything, huge charts and awesome pictures, I cannot rave enough about the quality of this publication. It is worth every penny of its bargain price of $9.99, and what a good time you'll have paging though it!

It's time to order this year's very limited-in-production annual issues that feature lots and lots of seasonal smalls! Both magazines ship to us approx 6 to 8 weeks before they hit news stands - we love that! Here are the teaser cover-pics...
  • The 2020 Just Cross Stitch Annual Collector's Halloween Issue is Here!
    They say you can't judge a book by it's cover... and I think one could say there is a lot more inside this little gem than the cover suggests! That Cat pic on the cover is darling... but LOOK at what else is in here! There is a pic of the 'Gallery Page' - the page guide for all the projects - and two more large designs that I think are awesome! 58 charts in all... The Halloween Issue is your Treat - not a Trick! Enjoy!
  • The Annual Christmas Ornament Issue is finally here!
    70+ projects inside, you can see a darling little sales trailer at the tree lot... a fun little red gnome, and a curly-q sheep on the cover... but there is a lot more inside! So much fun to page through... Open Road Abode did a holiday buffalo, and there are whales and flamingos in here too... definitely something for everyone! Along with the ornament charts there are recipes and family holiday memories - so those are fun to read and collect as well.

The smallest one is 8 x 10 x 2-1/2, medium one is 10-1/2 x 13 x 3-1/2, and the largest is 13 x 15-1/2 x 4. They're soft and lightweight, you can see through them, and they're cute - especially if you over-achieve and add some cute personalization stitching to them.

This was the next to last pattern Pam and Nancy released before they retired... and like just about everything else... sold out for a few years already. 9 smaller designs - all the same size - they all say something creepy.

Just black and orange thread colors, make some individual cushions, string the 9 together to make a long piece, do whatever floats your boat! You can even split that witch panel in half.

Your other option offered, is a similar witch face chart which is stitched on Picture This Plus's Nocturne linen, and finished into one of Linda's strawberry-shaped pin cushions. Super fun chartreuse, purple and oranges, we have lovely wool options for the toppers. The buttons you see in the pics are included in the chart.
  • Naughty or Nice - Linda's answer to the ago old question this time of year... 'Nice until proven Naughty!' Stitch this into a little framed piece, or make a pair of berry cushions or ornaments... just for fun!

Acorns & Halloween Parade from The Blue Flower
Blue Flower's September Releases!
  • Acorns - Measures 137 x 141, so finishes approx 8 x 8 on 36ct... this features little scurrying squirrels all keeping track of their plentiful acorns! Bright Leaf, Pamlico, Molasses, Juniper, Grasshopper, Sweet Potato, Bee's Knees, St Bernard, Pebble beach, Tea and Biscuits, and Trail Dust make up the delicious autumnal color palette. *The creation of a thousand forests is in a single acorn.*
  • Halloween Parade - *Strange things are seen on Halloween!* Enjoy this scene of all our pets our trick-or-treating! Jeannine says they'd get bones and fish instead of candy, but they'd still dress up! There's a tomato-puppy in here... a bee, a lion, an angel, a dinosaur, a turkey... and of course the big dog with the skeleton outfit on! This measures 183 x 120 - 10 x 7 on 36ct, and the whole thing is stitched with good old regular DMC floss!

Pumpkin Patch and Country Christmas Ornaments
from Annie Beez Folk Art
  • Pumpkin Patch - This is a fun color rendition for fall pumpkins! Kind of looks like that striped one just 'broke out' from the patch! Measuring only 77 x 55, it's about 3 x 5 on 32ct, and is stitched with just 5 shades of DMC. Even though it's just regular Cross Stitch, I think it would look really good to do Smyrna Crosses over 4 in those black bands and for the black dots on the orange pumpkin. It'd give a lot of unexpected texture. The finished wooden pumpkin piece it is mounted on came from Hobby Lobby.
  • Country Christmas Ornaments - This is a set of 14 ornament designs presented across three separate charts. They are all the same size - 44 x 40 - so will finish 2 x 2 on 40ct, or 3 x 3 on 14/28! Choose a fabric you like; these are worked on a natural color. Each is embellished with clay buttons on their corners. They're all different, and use bells, peppermints, snowflakes, hearts, stars, cardinals, holly... really any clay buttons from Just Another Button Company that accent and enhance the colors in each ornament. (Buttons all run around $2.50 each... available separately, just let us know if you want some!) The ornaments are finished flat, so you COULD use perf paper, you COULD finish with a color of felt behind the stitching that matches your buttons, and then use the final backing color (in this case -black.) You COULD make each set into a little stand-up cube with stitching on each side!

This is an enchanting set of 8 different miniature fairy houses - I don't know which one is the cutest! Stitched on any aqua colored fabric, they are coded for DMC floss and measure about 55 stitches in size - so about 3-1/2 inches on 32ct. Can't you just imagine WHO lives in each one of them?

Presented in 8 individual charts; we DO have some sets bundled together WITH the border chart and center panel included in that packet. (Border charts are not offered with the individual charts.) The center reads 'Fairies Welcome.' Just the sweetest pic... they would all be cute as individual pillows on a fairy-lovers bed... or stitched together on her bedroom wall!

Float your mouse over the individual images above to see their names.

Bouquet Ovale from The Tralala Collection -- click to see more Souris Couture from The Tralala Collection -- click to see more Cute new Designs from TraLaLa
  • Souris Couture - What a cute little stitching mouse! She's holding her threaded needle, perched atop that spool of thread... all the rest are growing flowers! The tomato pin cushion is super cute on there, too. The whole thing measures 110 x 79 - so not big at all - only 5 x 7 on 32ct. If you do the mouse individually, she's only 45 x 25, and that tomato is just a little over 2 inches square! DARLING pin cushions to stitch individually, and then gather together in a bowl!
  • Bouquet Ovale - This is the third glowing bouquet design we have by Tra la la - you can see the other two that coordinate with it on our inside pages. (Jolies Fleurs and Joli Bouquet) All three of them are so pretty... each is just a little different, but they do go together! Soft Gentle Art hand-dyed flosses of Forest Glade, Garden Gate, Soot, Raspberry Frost, Aged Pewter, Grasshopper, Old Purple Paint, Old Red Paint and Caramel Corn, the overall stitch count is 115 x 69 - or a petite and pretty 7 x 4 on 32ct!

Los Charros from Susanamm - click for more Trick or Treat from Susanamm - click for more Coffee Time from Susanamm - click for more
New Designs by Susana Muchado
These are super fun new designs that we are excited about! Contemporary flavor, and fun subjects, they are worked on any fabric you like best, and coded for DMC floss. All presented as charts, we have 7 new choices... here are three, click through to see the other ones!
  • Los Charros features three friends - a kitty, mouse and birds - all wearing their delightfully colorful headgear! Stitch count is 144 x 149, so on 14/28ct it finishes about 10 x 10.
  • Trick or Treat is my favorite. It is solid stitching - unless you find that gorgeous shade of turquoise for your fabric. So, the chart is a little intense... a lot of solid symbols. Stitch count is 110 x 148 - 8 x 10-ish on 28ct. I love the colors, I love the cat, everything about it is snappy!
  • Coffee Time is smart, clean and fresh! What a pretty piece to hang in a contemporary kitchen... it measures 145 x 169. Choose a fabric to match the background color of the wall behind the flowers - then skip all that stitching. Otherwise, it is completely solid stitching - which sometimes, is really fun to do (but sometimes not, so be aware!) Peaceful colors of grays and light browns with a splash of mossy green and lavender tossed in.

Patchwork de la Plage from Jardin Prive - click for more Sampler aux Fleurs from Jardin Prive - click for more Sampler aux Fleurs and Patchwork de la Plage
from Jardin Prive
We have a pair of new arrivals by Jardin Prive that look like they'd be fun to stitch. Presented as charts, they are both coded for DMC floss.
  • Sampler aux Fleurs measures 254 x 190, and finishes 11 x 14 on 18/36ct fabric. You can stitch it in one color of hand-dyed (cat sampler is stitched that way on her page) if you want - or the 8 DMC's - 152, 223, 733, 931, 932, 3011, 3781 and 3790. Not all the letters are in all the alphabets on here - to save space and to mimic antique samplers! You could have fun with your family - make 'em figure out what's missing - or you could change some of the ABC letter order and stitch words or names instead.
  • Patchwork de la Plage is another patchwork design - we have cats, dogs and Halloween already on her pages - this is another cute design theme. Tiny one-inch squares, they build together to make a charming sampler. Do a bunch of individual squares and make bitty fobs or whatever, stitch 3 or 4 together to make pin cushions - you could make at least a dozen different combinations with this and make a whole bowl of cute smalls! So darn cute, it's coded for DMC's of 310, 321, 437, 597, 733, 783, 839, 922, 3809, 3810 and 3865.

I Smell Children and Wicked Women Unite
from AB Designs
Amy Bruecken has a couple of new designs that are full of the personality of her favorite season - Halloween! Presented as single charts, she suggests wild fabric to complement the regular, solid DMC flosses she's used on them. You can add embellishments where-ever you want, she doesn't have anything specific featured on them.
  • I Smell Children will finish approx 4-1/2 x 8 on 32ct... if you don't want to offend your grand children - you CAN leave off the words... but this might really be cute propped in the candy bowl just for fun!
  • Wicked Women Unite is kind of a return of Amy's Fridge Art from a few years ago - little 3 x 3 squares that finished into refrigerator magnets. Five little squares you can arrange however you like... again, just regular DMC floss!

She's provided 8 unfinished wooden boards, 7 precut to size mat boards, 4 yards of twill tape ribbon, a coordinating Journal cover design, and finishing instructions to construct your stitched set of flowers into this cool zig-zag-folding journal!

A fun finishing idea, kind of a surprise presentation if it's folded on your table and someone picks it up to look at it! Each of the six flower panels could be framed or cushioned as well... it's a cheerful set!

Might Mighty Bright Rechargeable Floor Lamp - click for more Might Mighty Bright Rechargeable Floor Lamp - click for more How's Your Stitching Lamp These Days?
Been burning the midnight bulbs... but need a little more UUMPH?
The Mighty Bright Rechargeable Floor Lamp

We have a new magnifying lamp... rechargeable... LED... three light levels... totally adjustable head... covered gooseneck arm! It features 2X magnification with a 5X spot lens inside the main lens. Very sleek design, the whole thing weighs 14 lbs... the cord goes up through the stick, so there is no exposed cord if you don't want one! The battery will run the lamp on high for 2-ish hours and up to 7 hours on the low setting. There is also a AC power adapter included so you CAN plug it in.

The lights adjust from warm white (closer to incandescent) to bright white (daylight balanced). It's a nice lamp. Bulbs are covered, nothing funny sticking out anywhere - very clean and sleek. We'd ordered them before everything shut down in February - sold them, and couldn't get more right away... but they are here now, and we are thrilled! Might be time for a new light in your stitching area!!!
Christmas Square Dance #3 from Heart in Hand - click for more Pocket Round Crow from Heart in Hand - click for more Patchwork Crow from Heart in Hand - click for more Robin Sampler from Heart in Hand - click for more
Newly Arrived from Heart in Hand!
  • Christmas Square Dance #3 - Here are the next three HAPPY THINGS about the Christmas Season - Cozy, Jolly and Toys! Heart in Hand is continuing her 12-part mini-design series - Christmas Square Dance. You will end up with 12 coordinating ornaments, bowl fillers, or small squares that you can stitch in any arrangement you want! Cute as can be, Cecelia has featured some unexpected-but-traditional themes in this set... very colorful, lots of fun bitty surprises on them! Presented in 4 different charts, each chart includes three designs... so these are #7, 8, and 9 in the set.
  • Pocket Round Crow - This is a delightfully LITTLE black bird perched atop a plump pumpkin. The design finishes only about 2 x 2 - because it is designed to sit on top of Cecelia's newest Heartware Bowl - her small Gray one. (It really has no name!) Half the size of her creamy white bowl - the new mini-gray is the CUTEST! Anyway, this is a small design for that smaller topping. He comes as a small card chart.
  • Patchwork Crow - Share your harvest to give meaning to life and peace to your heart. This little guy finishes about 6 x 6 and he's stitched with a smattering of Weeks hand-dyed flosses. Great Autumnal colors, he looks like he's already enjoyed a FULL Thanksgiving meal! Presented as a 6 x 9 chart.
  • Robin Sampler - A fat little bird perched atop his wool felt flower. He's singing away... only we can't spell it... so here's the whole alphabet instead! Stitched on Vintage Country Mocha linen, on 32ct this finishes 5 x 10. Presented in leaflet format, it includes a wooden leaf button and the 2 rounds of felt to make the appliqued penny-flower in the center. The dark stripe near the right edge is a piece of hand-dyed lace... it's an optional design element, the lace is not included with the pattern.

Christkindlmarkt from Pickle Barrel Designs is Now Complete!
This is dear to the hearts of the ladies here at The Silver Needle! It is a set of small designs all stitched together of a Christmas Market Scene! We hosted a Christmas Markets Cruise trip down the Danube River with Jeannette Douglas 4 years ago - and are planning our next one THIS COMING December! So... everyone who went on our delightful trip - or who is going on the next one will have to have this!

By Pickle Barrel Designs, the top part is the header for the piece - check out those little gnomes (which have always been popular in Germany - but not here until recently!) Then, the glass Blowing booth - the first of the six stands. Parts 3 through 7 will be the glass ornament stand, a bakery, hot apple cider, (they all serve hot 'glu-wein' - hot sangria-type wine in special little mugs to collect from each market), hot pretzels and the roasted nuts! (We are only waiting for #7 for this series to finish. The individual stand designs all finish about 4 inches each. (Actually, there are terrific hand-made items at those markets too... and you should SEE the decorated trees the towns put up in City Center as well!)

ANYWAY, I know our gals will add metallics and beads and fun threads to these... and maybe even tape a few ticket stubs and market fliers to the back of their finished framed piece! Even if you aren't coming along on our next cruise... this is a super-charming piece! It's a must have! Coded for DMC and Weeks hand-dyeds, it finishes about 16 x 16 on 25ct Lugana - so any other fabric will make it smaller as well.

All The fun Of The Fair from Little Dove Designs
Oh we might not be going to The Fair much in 2020... but we used to... and we will again! Now it means greasy food, and kind of getting sick watching the crazy rides. The 4-H exhibits are neat... the booths selling ironing board covers - not so much.

So WHY do we remember it so well from when we were little? Everything must have been colorful back then, the candy was delicious, and those rides didn't make you sick - just super scared!

This is a fun scene from your memory - measuring 123 x 176 - so 9 x 12 on 28ct. Coded for DMC, choose a fun background fabric color so the white will show up, and for heavens sake, add some metallics and beads to this! What a fun summer decoration to get out and display from June to September!

What a delightful set of bowl fillers! Charity & Humility finish out this set that can be stitched all together (complimentary border chart on Summer House's site) or individually in cushions. Stitched on 32ct Flax Linen.

Threads needed for all are: Weeks Dye Works Lichen (3), Hunter (3), Flatfish (2), Blue Jeans (3), Gunmetal (4), and 3 skeins of Classic Colorworks Barn Door. One pack of the chenille will trim all pillows, and all are backed with Weeks hand-dyed wool of Red Pear.

Seeds of Love from Heartstring Samplery Farm
Farm Folk & Penny Cushions and Seeds of Love from Heartstring Samplery
Heartstrings Samplery has released two new patterns - and they are here!
  • Farm & Folk Penny Cushions features two designs with little round 'penny' designs on their edges.
    '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!
  • Seeds of Love - Just a sweet pattern that measures about 4 x 4... it's stitched with a few Weeks hand-dyed cottons. I like the finishing trim - it's rik-rak that is glued to the inside edges of the frame!

Three New Designs from With Thy Needle

CS285 The Witches Brew from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more CS284 Hilda Boo & Sunflowers Too from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more CS286 Autumn Gatherings from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more
  • The Witches Brew - This is stitched on a gray color - and finishes approx 3-1/2 x 4-/12 on 36ct. The little witch is standing atop her cup of brew... but it doesn't look like it's a scary cauldron of something yucky at all! Brenda garnished with a metal spoon charm she found on Etsy - it's a cute idea! I think that orange rik-rak sets it off too! (probably Lady Dot Jack color.) Stitched with bits of DMC and hand-dyeds.
  • Hilda Boo & Sunflowers, Too - Stitched on a rich deep purply background, this finishes approx 4-1/2 x 6 on a 40ct. Choose something dark and fun - it really makes that yellow (GAST Gold Leaf) pop!
  • Autumn Gatherings - This is chart # 1 of a 4-part set of the seasons. Finishing approx 4 x 5 on 36ct Heartland by Picture This Plus, this is worked with a mixture of hand-dyed flosses, and trimmed with Lady Dot's hand-dyed Vintage Twill Tape. Brenda says all four will be this shape, but you can finish in a regular square shape if you'd rather. No word on release dates yet, or fabric and twill choices for the rest... but at least enjoy THIS one now - we think it's darling! We'll be doing an auto-ship for the rest of the Gatherings - sending charts as each is released!

Snow village #11 Snow Cone Cart from Country Cottage Needleworks -- click to see more
Country Cottage's Snow Village is finally finished!
All 11 parts are now here... you can stitch each individually or join them together for the charming village. We've been collecting for a year... and Snow Cone Cart is the final design!

We've sold all sorts of different fabrics for this - mostly, you want a gray or blue so all the snow shows up... some have added opalescent threads, some have added beads... you do whatever makes you happy!

Little Berry Thief from Scattered Seed Samplers - click to see more
Little Berry Thief
from Scattered Seed Samplers
This is a sweet berry-shaped pin cushion with a little brown bird nibbling his precious and ripe strawberry. Stitched on 36ct Vintage Country Mocha linen with regular ol' DMC of B5200, 221, 869, 3011 and 3799... it finishes about 3-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches in size.

The chart includes an actual-sized template for the fabric size, and another for the green leaf top. Make that from vintage fabric or some wool. I like that Feather Stitching on the backside, too; it closes your berry!

#251 Hugs & Kisses Dish Towel Kit from Bareroots - click to see more A cute New Dishtowel Design
from Bareroots... Because I Said So!
Barri has a new design in her fun set of embroidered dish towels... this one sports 'The Absolute Truth! *Because I said so, Mom.* All of these 100% cotton towels come with the line design drawings (ready to be transferred on with our super-special transfer paper), the flosses and rik rak trim for towel ends.

Grab an old fashioned embroidery hoop and practice up on Lazy Daisy and Long stitches... and you're good to go! Because I Said So is part of the set of 12 other monthly and holiday towels... all are just the cutest!

LR 1844 Sampler by Reflets de Soie -- click to see more!

LR 1844 Sampler
from Reflets de Soie
Here's another gorgeous antique reproduction from Reflets de Soie. Presented in chart format - we have it with or without her pre-sorted silk threads. The stitch count is 261 x 302 (silks are enough for 36 or 40ct fabric), but this is also coded for DMC floss as well.

That gorgeous wandering border surrounds 9 floral bouquets and urns - I think quite a few of them would be pretty stitched as individual pin cushions. The reds are 321 and 498, but the brightest yellow is only 676. The greens are 3051, 3012, 3011 and 372 - all very soft.

Simple Gifts - O Holy Night from Praiseworthy Stitches - click for more

Simple Gifts - O Holy Night
from Praiseworthy Stitches
Praiseworthy Stitches has a new Quaker-inspired sampler - scattered with lacy motifs. Measuring 212 x 204 stitches, it finishes 13 inches square on 32ct.

Stitched with hand-dyeds of Cucumber (6), Indian Summer (2) and Whiskey (2), it's just a pretty thing! Remember that you can finish all those edge motifs by mirroring the images... so if you want, you can have matching pin cushions or ornaments for this!

Pandemic! from Long Dog Samplers - click for more

Pandemic!
from Long Dog Samplers
Well, I'd say so! Long Dog has a new piece entitled Pandemic! Something to 'calm your stitching nerves' during the pandemic? Whip up this intricate beauty while you're staying home to stitch! Stitch count is 365 x 429 - so it'll finish approx 20 x 24 on 36ct.

Jools talks about the nature and symptoms of a Cross Stitch Pandemic - the pathways to transmission and symptoms to watch out for. She gives the stitcher instruction on how to deal with the Stitching Disease - the entire back page of the chart is just a delight to read! Meanwhile, grab your favorite fabric and choose some threads... and try to ride it out working on this design! Presented as a chart.

The Gnome Quartet Kits from Mill Hill - click for more
New Christmas Kits from Mill Hill
The Gnome Quartet
Oh my gosh... these are SO CUTE! Just in time for '100-degree-outsides-so-stay-inside-stitching' weather, come these 4 little gnome designs! Presented as complete kits of 28ct linen with floss, needles, chart and a few Mill Hill glass beads, these little guys finish approx 6 x 6 each. We have a skiing, sledding, fishing and hiking gnome - my favorite though is that little bunny riding in the sled!

(As a added feature you COULD use Rainbow Gallery's Wisper thread for the beards. It is a very thin and very furry thread, 70% kid mohair and 30% nylon.... it is NOT included in the kits. Totally just a suggestion of mine - it comes on 20 yd cards, white, cream and grays... check you stash to see if you have any!) Anyway, super cute designs, since they are on linen you have the option of framing them or making pillows!

The Mouse Trilogy Kits from Mill Hill - click for more
The Mouse Trilogy Aren't these little things darling? Three new stitched and beaded designs by Mill HIll, each finishes about 5 x 5. They are stitched on 14ct perforated paper with DMC floss and garnished with Mill Hill glass beads. Super-cute for tree ornaments, they are a bit on the larger side, but because they are worked on the paper, they are flat and lightweight - so PERFECT for tree ornaments! Patsy Pine's feet are poking out from the wreath, and how can you not love that Mac Cheese guy? Complete kits of paper, beads, floss, chart and needles.

Special Delivery from Les Petites Croix De Lucie - click for more

Vintage Sewing Accessories from Les Petites Croix de Lucie
This is a neat pattern. It is a medley of antique sewing accessories and tools, all stitched with 26 various shades of DMC floss. The charts in here are huge, and all in color. You can stitch each 'thing' individually or do the entire medley, which measures 117 x 141 - so only 7 x 9 on 32ct!

It looks a lot bigger than that, so the moral of this story is PIN CUSHIONS AND LITTLE SEWING CASES! That tape measure is about 15 x 60 the button card is only 34 x 34, the safety pin is only 10 x 30... these are enchanting little what-nots! Get the chart, and then figure out what you want to do with all the designs... this is a 'must have!'


Summer Hill from Plum Street Samplers Nightshade Bird from Plum Street Samplers Summertide Blessings from Plum Street Samplers Tomato Dame from Plum Street Samplers Grace on Thee from Plum Street Samplers
New Arrivals fromPlum Street Samplers.
Paulette has several Summer Releases - for some reason she is really into TOMATOES this time around - maybe she's growing some in her garden!
  • Summer Hill - A Companion to Autumn Hill, Paulette tells us that one of the 'hill sisters' is standing next to her garden flag. Stitched in good old DMC floss, the stripes on the flag are over one thread, and the stars on her skirt are dome with straight stitches.
  • Nightshade Bird - A fun finishing treatment for this black-and-pink bird who is carrying a cherry tomato vine... I like the primitive x-stitches that decorate the top and bottom edges of the linen. Measuring 3 x 10 on 36ct, you can't see the entire design, but the busy little bird and vine are intertwined with the alphabet. The Nightshade reference in the title again refers back to tomatoes. There are no finishing instructions included for that velvet tomato on top - but probably easily found online somewhere.
  • Summertide Blessings - More Tomatoes! Paulette describes this: A Nightshade-loving lady riding atop her squawking steed, showing off her prized tomatoes while carrying her beloved country's banner and counting her blessings. Quite a mouthful! Anyway, stitched on a dusty denim blue shade of linen, it measures 132 x 97 - or 6 x 9 on 32ct.
  • Tomato Dame - This another fun one - more tomatoes! 89 x 97... Choose that blue again, or something with a lot of gold in it to contrast the tomatoey-reds... cute pin cushion!
  • Grace on Thee - This one is very balanced and organized - and showcases a very talented landscaper! Measuring 128 x 120, it finishes 8 x 8 on 32ct and is stitched on a light neutral. I love the over-one on the flag, all the panes in the windows, all the lines of the bricks - all of that is straight. Then, the topiary evergreens in the garden with the little quilt star motifs on them contrast the squares with circles and points! And, Paulette reminds us to take note of that timely verse at the top!

Well Rounded! from Hands On Design - click to see more New Designs from Hands On Design...
Lets Talk Autumn! #1 in Hands On Designs' Chalk Talk Series

This trio of designs, presented in one chart, begins a new 4-season set of 'words-of-the-season.' Cathy has done a main design which is 7 x 9 in size when stitched on 32ct. It is shown in an 8 x 10 frame. Then, there are two smaller take-out-designs from the main - that you can finish in different ways. Same design charm and personality - just less stitching time involved! Worked with DMC floss, choose any count of the many chalkboard-colored fabrics available - just get something you can see to work with. (We estimate a 1/2 yard for all 4 large pieces; you can get 6 of the smaller ones from a 1/4... depends on how many of the pieces you want to stitch.)

Notice the leaves on the hoop finish? Those are stitched on perforated paper! Cathy is using 14ct brown perf paper for a cute finish on all four of her seasons. Spring, Summer and Winter will follow in this order, and most likely release every 8 weeks or so. If you like that trim option, a package of brown perforated paper contains two 9 x 12 sheets, and will be plenty to do all four, even while splitting the package with a friend! All the seasonal colors just POP on that dark fabric, this will be a fun set of designs! We'll do an auto-ship for the charts as they release... you decide on fabrics and the paper option as you wish... there are tons of choices for both!

  • XS219 Fabulous Monsters #2 - How funny are these little guys? Groovy Gary and Frightened Fred finish about 4-1/2 x 5 each... stitch them together in a line, or singly... they are the second pair of Monsters, and go with Skelly and Party Pete!
  • XS252 Snarky CatSnarky Cat - I love this one - how disgusted does he look? And the Jack is HAPPY about it all! Everything is fun about this - the leaf shapes in the background, the contrast of the cat, the shape and stripes on the pumpkin and yet more geometric shapes on the bottom border. Snarky and his Jack finish approx 5 x 5 on 40... or under 6 x 6 on 32.
  • XS4004 Land That I Love - This is another of Teresa's bigger samplers - it measures 288 x 292 - so 16-1/2 done on 32ct. SO MANY cute motifs and borders on this... everywhere you look on this, the houses are neat, the baskets are cool, the colors are all rich cranberry and brick reds, navy and denim blues and rich golds. Stitch it in its entirety or split up the elements - this is lovely!

One Hundred Hearts from Samplers Not Forgotten - click to see more
One Hundred Hearts from Samplers Not Forgotten
A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you. Samplers Not Forgotten did this piece for us several years ago as part of our A Little Help From Our Friends Stitching Circle! It is a precious design... I even took home the model and it's been on my dresser ever since (so now I'd better bring it back to the shop!)

Soft colors of Weeks hand-dyed flosses (Pamlico, Jay Bird, Bullfrog, Grasshopper, Aztec Red and Hibiscus) on weeks 32ct Tin Roof hand-dyed linen, it finishes about 5 x 5. The little wool heart on the back holds a small pair of scissors if you want it to, so you'll want to choose wool and cushion trim that matches.

Christmas Eve Couriers Dasher from Mirabilia -- click to see more Princess Elliana from Mirabilia
Something fun has arrived from Mirabilia - Princess Elliana - a most colorful creature! One of Elliana's claims-to-fame is that she uses all the 35 newest colors of DMC floss that were released a few years ago in the gold collector's tin. Colors 1 through 35... do you have them? (She actually calls for a total of 63 DMC colors.) Well, this delightful creature is stitched on the prettiest shade of Peaceful Purple - either 32ct linen, or 16ct aida.

The patterns in her dress are inspired by the delicate floral patterns on the china tea sets at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New York City! She measures 20 x 11, and is garnished with 10 different shades of Mill Hill glass beads along with pink and peach crystal Treasures. All that classic Mirabilia coloring and shading... I look at the chart and my eyes glaze over... then there are some of you that can stitch these in the car! We have the charts available, both fabric options and the embellishment packet at well.
