Holiday Home Berries from Erica Michaels - click for more Hearthside Christmas from Erica Michaels - click for more Reindeer Games from Erica Michaels - click for more
A trio of new Arrivals from Erica Michaels
  • Holiday Home Berries - What a cute pair of stitched cushions that you could actually hang on your Christmas Tree! Worked on 32ct Polka Dot Belfast Linen, one says Home for the Holidays and the other features that little gingerbread house. Each is topped with Weeks Dye Works felted wool decoration... and garnished with a set of JABCO hand-made clay pins. Bright and colorful, they are charming! You'll need Snow Cream, Candy Apple, Meadow and Collards wool schnigglets - a set of those will top half a dozen berries!
  • Hearthside Christmas - A simple welcoming sampler to stitch - it won't take a lifetime to complete - even though it's 10 x 12 on 36ct. The smaller pin cushion design is a take-out from the larger - it reads Friends for you fireside, good times, good cheer.
  • Reindeer Games - This one is kind of fun, especially if you are a 'crossword puzzle' family! What I LOVE, though, about the pattern are the two smaller projects pictured on the cover - a tiny reindeer berry and and the little drum stand-up. Just really fun decorations to perch around during the holidays!

Santa's Toyshop... Our October 2020 Secret Needle Night Kit
Stitch this cute gingerbread-y office - it's Santa's Toyshop! Christmas is just around the corner... and Santa's Toy Shop might be closed at the moment... but I bet it's busy in there during work hours!

Worked on 18ct Natural linen with Rainbow Gallery's Very Velvets, Arctic Rays and a little metalic Fyre Werks, it finishes about 4-1/2 x 5. We finished ours into a flat-stand-up... but it'd be fun as a cube too - to look like a package! The Velvets are a dream to stitch with, and all the bright colors make this fun to do. Presented as our kit of fabric, threads that swirly mint button for the front door.
Wickety By Cross Eyed Cricket -- click to see more
Wickety
from Cross Eyed Cricket
Something new by Cross Eyed Cricket! Ms Wickety wears wings, but Vicki promises she is no angel Stitched on 28ct Lambswool Linen with regular DMC, Wickety has bits of purple and vintage gold metallic in her dress. She measures over 6 x 11... so you won't miss her in the room!

The bonus pattern in the leaflet is another of Cross Eyed Cricket's famous mittens... this time it's a MUMMY! We have no idea how many mittens there are - at least 100 I bet - so something else darling to add to your collection!
Infant Book #1 from Susanamm - click for more Happy from Susanamm - click for more The Skull from Susanamm - click for more
Cute Variety by Susanamm Cross Stitch!
All of her designs are funky... and generally heavy on the stitch count. They are big, lots of solid worked areas, and they'll use tons of your DMC! Sometimes the charts are intense because they are so much solid stitching... but a lot of needleworkers really like that!
  • Infant Book #1 - This is a set of colorful motifs to arrange however you want. The animals along the top row are larger - 100 x 75-ish in stitch count - so they would make darling single pillows or bedroom door signs - something like that. The little birds and mushrooms are 40 and 60 in count... just cute and fun.
  • Happy is just that! Focus on the chickens - not the blue background - you can stitch these on any color fabric you want! They are 161 x 172.
  • The Skull - Oh my gosh, I think this is so cute! But, but, I think I would skip the pumpkin because the chart makes my head spin! (It's solid and about 80 x 80 stitches of 349, 606, 646, 720, 817 and 922 - it's a whopper!) The skeleton is so darn cute, and the whole thing uses only 9 shades of DMC... just super fun... so get out that floss!

Something Wicked BANNER & BISCORNU Book from Sue Hillis -- click to see more Something Wicked BOX & SMALLS Book from Sue Hillis -- click to see more Something Wicked Box & Smalls and Banner & Biscornu
from Sue Hillis Designs
Sue Hillis has two new books that feature delightfully fun sets of designs for Halloween, and then really concentrate on all the finishing details for everything in the sets.
  • Boxes and Smalls has the cutest Halloween alphabet circling around a box that you line and cover... you're learning neat and tidy finishing into a wooden hoop. You can cover a plastic tape measure with stitching and a professional trimming, and even make a casket-shaped box for scissors!
  • The coordinating Banner and Biscornu set of designs makes that long hanging that Sue then wraps around a wooden spool and tops with the Biscornu cushion! Really fun things, you can use all the Lady Dot trims and velvets to match your threads, use some JABCO clay pins, add beads and metallics all over the place, so many options for all of this. Great assembly pics... TONS of info in these two publications!

Fall into Autumn from Jeannette Douglas Blooming Bouquets #5 Bountiful from Jeannette Douglas Blooming Bouquets #5 Bountiful and Fall Into Autumn
Jeannette Douglas has a few new releases that coordinate with some of her other designs. Autumn is here - and we just love the colors, flowers and flavors of the season!
  • Blooming Bouquets #5 Bountiful - Bittersweet and Rose Hips, here is another classic floral piece to frame and brighten any place you hang it! Stitched on 36ct Picture This Plus Legacy Linen, it measures 130 x 159 - so about 7 x 9 in size. Jeannette uses yummy hand-dyed silks in here... I believe the leaflet does have some DMC conversions, but her thread packs (which are offered separately) are second to none in gorgeous thread offerings. So don't skimp on your needlework - get the thread pack!
  • Fall into Autumn is Jeannette's third in this seasonal set of pin cushions. We already have Jump Into Spring and Soar Into Summer... and Cozy into Winter is coming in December. (You'll remember that Cozy was our Circle of Friends Design last December... so lots of you already have that one - hopefully some have finished it!) Really a pretty little piece, it uses hand-dyed cottons and the bands all across the bottom feature special stitches. The three patterns available so far are presented as charts and they're stitched on 32ct from Picture This Plus.

Halloween?  I Can't, I'm Stitching! from Jardin Prive - click for more Halloween? I Can't, I'm Stitching!
from Jardin Prive
Well, maybe take some time off to Trick or Treat? By Jardin Prive, she suggests your witch can have green skin! Just 8 shades of DMC in this 126 x 86 count piece... my eye sees three separate pin cushions across the top.

I see the witch stitching. Then, I see another section - another cushion - of the scissors, floss and Boo. (You could even split that one into two!) Then, I see the house and tree scene! There are lots of fun possibilities with this one!

New Halloween Arrivals from Shepherd's Bush
  • Scare Ewe! How cute is this? The little trio of sheep is all dressed up to SCARE you right out of Trick or Treating! One is dressed like a pumpkin, one is a witch - complete with a handmade clay striped witch hat - but the one that steals the show is the tiny SKELETON - he's half-there! Complete kit on 18ct Natural linen with the threads and hat. For a limited time, we also have just the chart with that hat button.
  • Witching Season - A busy scene on this 3 x 3 cushion - there are bones buried in the ground, spiders and bats, the scary jack-o-lantern and a cute little crow wearing a hat on here! Complete kit comes with the linen, threads, and Teri's hand-dyed ribbon trim. The three clay pins poking out are separate are from Just Another Button Company - we have those too!

Two Skinny Dogs: Martha Moulder 1859
from Shakespeare's Peddler
Teresa has a new sampler... it DOES have skinny dogs in it... and kind of a skinny house too! Stitch it on coffee or tea-stained, it uses Weeks and DMC flosses in it's 263 x 197 stitch count.

The central evergreens are so regular and pretty, the birds on either side are striped real funny - I'm sure Teresa has a story behind those! Juniper, Molasses, Sanguine, Pea Coat, Light Khaki, #3045, Tarragon and Pebble!

Mouse's Halloween Stitching from Tiny Modernist - click to see more Mouse's Halloween Stitching
from The Tiny Modernist
This is a sweet little pin cushion design presented in a small card format. It measures only 58 x 58 in stitch count - so just 3 x 3 on 32ct Waterlily linen - which is a soft green, just like the pic suggests. Only 7 colors of thread in here, the tomato pin cushion is really a PUMPKIN stitched with Weeks Dye Works Pumpkin hand-dyed floss.

Check out the fun little pins poking from her pumpkin, too! Use some Rainbow Gallery Wisper for the mouse, a little black metallic for the scissors if you want, gold metallic for the moon... cute little piece!
Celebrate Punch Needle Book from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Oh My Bird from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Old Friend from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more All The Things from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more
Just SOME of our 8 New Arrivals Due Any Day by Teresa Kogut
  • Celebrate Punch Needle Book This is Teresa's promised HUGE punch needle book - presented just like her 15th Anniversary Cross Stitch book - it has 15 punch needle designs in it. No pics of the inside yet, but at $16 it's a steal for all you get!
  • Oh My Bird is presented on Graham Cracker Linen - so choose a pretty golden brown you like to highlight your colors! DMCs and hand-dyeds, it finishes about 8 x 12 on 32ct.
  • Old Friend - Isn't this little guy the cutest? The background of this is not stitched - so that is the linen color. Dark is harder to see, so maybe think about filling it in if you work on a lighter shade. He finishes just 5 x 6 on 32ct - so really, there's not much background to do if you go that route.
  • All The Things - This is a cool piece... do it all, or just the center Santa section... or make ornaments and cushions out of the border motifs! Stitched on Picture This Plus's Gingerbread, we have that color in several counts. Big, it finishes 8 x 10 on 32ct! DMCs and handyeds.

New Releases by Brenda Gervais. Coming the end of October, we're taking RESERVATIONS now... Here we go!
  • Winter Rose Manor #289 - This is a pretty, wintery sampler that features several different borders, a beautiful white house, and lots of glorious foliage in the yard. It finishes approx 10 x 10 on 36ct Brenda's Brew by R & R amd is worked with a medley of hand-dyed flosses. The round bird design featured on the back cover of this leaflet is finished atop a drum-shaped cushion... same colors - 40ct fabric.
  • BRRR... It's cold Outside #288 - Inspired by 'Bobbing for Pumpkins', here is Brenda's Winter version! Check out the snowballs in the basket, and the bitty candy cane the cardinal is holding! Stitched on 40ct Vintage Country Mocha linen, it finishes about 4 x 7.
  • Mr Marshmallow #287 - How cute is this little guy? Brenda is thinking she's brewing a series of designs here... Coffee First and The Witches Brew came before this one! Hot cocoa is always perfect on a cold snowman morning! The linen is Picture This Plus's Kermit... but Brenda says a darker neutral fabric color would look good too. Finishing approx 4 x 5 on the 36ct... he uses a variety of DMC and some hand-dyed flosses. Buttons are additional and optional.
  • When Santa's Away the Mice will Play! CS290 - More of these darling Christmas Mice... MUCH cuter than the ones that sneak into kitchen pantries! Stitched over one on 28ct Lugana makes this ornament-sized, but you can do anything larger that you like. Brenda actually used a piece of cotton batting for the boot top, and suggests that stitching-time-saver alternative!


  • Christmas Sampler II from Cottage Garden Samplings - click to see more Halloween Sampler II from Cottage Garden Samplings - click to see more Halloween Sampler II and Christmas Sampler II
    from Cottage Garden Samplings
    This is a pair of seasonal alphabet pieces that are neat in their own ways!
    • Presented as chart, Halloween Sampler II is worked on Picture This Plus's Murky linen - which the coolest, mangy color - it's just muddy and a MESS! So many things look REALLY good on it! You get all the letters plus some fun words for all of them with a few motifs tucked in here and there. LOTS of possibilities for beads, metallics and maybe a couple of charms or an old skeleton key!
    • Christmas Sampler II is much more subdued. Stitched on Ancient linen from Picture This Plus, the letters chart is huge - printed on one huge sheet of glossy paper - the motifs are super-cute, it finishes about 8 or 9 inches square depending on your fabric count choice. We like them both!

    The 2020 Holiday Snowflakes from Mill Hill
    Here are 6 new small snowflakes to stitch for your Christmas Tree! Worked on silver and gold perforated paper, the colors this year are all that silver, gold, and opalescent with touches of icy aqua tossed in.

    Really a cute set of designs, make pin cushions, individual ornaments or join all together to make a gigantic presentation. Cecelia has a little freebie chart on her website that says *Home for the Holidays* and it features just 3 openings - just a little shorter version!


    Wee Santa 2020 Wee One Card from Heart in Hand - click for more
    2020 Annual Wee Santa
    from Heart in Hand
    The jolly 'ol guy is here, dressed in knitted leggings and a gray sweatshirt! He's taking his bitty snowman friend out for a walk... both of them have candy canes to help with the walking and enough to eat too!

    Stitched on 32ct Doubloon Linen by Picture This Plus, this calls for either DMC or hand-dyeds. The small chart comes with a trio of tiny brass star charms to dot the sky.


    4-Inch Wooden Ruler Thread Organizer -- click here to see more!
    Fun Ouija Thread Organizers!
    Something cute for your stitching threads... use this 3-3/4 x almost 6-inch mini 'gameboard' to hold your project threads.

    The coordinating needle minder - the planchette - is what we used to move around the board to tell our future and fortune! It features two magnets so you can attach it to fabric if you need to.

    Just a fun blast from the past! Want to know more about the history of Ouija Boards?


    Spooktacular by Hinzeit -- click to see more new designs Spooktacular
    from Hinzeit
    We haven't had anything new from Hinzeit for quite some time... but I saw this one and liked it! Kind of a hint of a Jack-O-Lantern, it's pretty bold and cute. Measures 49 x 191 - you can stitch it on anything you want - 32ct makes it 3 x 12.

    Coded for regular DMC floss, the chart comes with a spider charm. I would categorize the spider as icky! He's over 1/2 an inch in size, the kind that 'hops' when you try to get it, and I would definitely NOT step on one of these with bare feet! (charm or real!!!) So there you have it - charming with a terrifying embellishment!

    Halloween Seed Sack, Jack's Urn, Sleepy Hollow & Second Day of Christmas
    The Barrick Ladies have released a few new titles for the Fall that we really like!
  • Halloween Seed Sack - By Carriage House Samplings - What a cute way to finish some needlework... make a big bag and stuff it with candy or pumpkins! Stitched on 32ct oaken, the needlework part is 9 x 10, so your sack CAN finish into a decent size!
  • Jack's Urn - By Kathy Barrick - This one is fun because of the cool background, that bold urn and then that whole house scene inside the pumpkin! Lots of neat design elements in this one, it is stitched on 36ct Legacy Linen by Picture This Plus, and finishes about 8 x 8.
  • Sleepy Hollow - By Liz Matthews, This one has that cool branch of owls, all those pretty leaves and acorns, and then all the jacks and cats along the bottom. Lots to look at, it finishes approx 6 x 12 on 32ct Legacy Linen by Picture This Plus, and is stitched with regular DMC!
  • Second Day of Christmas - By Liz Matthews, stitch this as a flat picture, or do that awesome 'tree shape' finish... this is charming! It finishes approx 6 x 8 on 32ct... stitch your family initials - or friends - into those houses along the bottom.


  • Sow Kindness from Hands to Work - click for more
    Sow Kindness
    from Hands to Work
    'They that sow kindness gather love.' This is a charming row of houses featuring that great verse - finish it flat in a frame, or roll it like this charming drum!

    Worked on Picture This Plus Ale linen, it uses Classic and Gentle Art hand-dyed flosses. The chart is beautifully printed inside. (One of the shop gals, who had a self-imposed-buying-restriction this week, caved, and opened this one up before she bought it. The chart is HUGE, and the center lines are printed in red. A quick and easy stitch!

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 from October House - click for more Friendly Blooms from October House - click for more

    #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.
    Blackbird's Sweet Summer, Come Again - click for more


    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!


    Owls of October II from Just Nan - click for more
    The Owls of October II
    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!

    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.
    • Simple Act features an angel - *Magic is the simple act of believing what our hearts already know to be true.* Linen is a cream color.
    • 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.

    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 Annual Ornament and Halloween Issues of Just Cross Stitch Magazine
    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.

    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!

    The Fairy Garden Houses from Shannon Christine
    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!


    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.

    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 did a finishing kit for this project - we will have these for a limited time. 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!

    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!!!

    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!

    • 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!

    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!

    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.

    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!

SUPER cute this year, we love that cupcake, and of course the tropical Santa is the CUTEST! The Teddy's Tale is cute too... something to stitch for your grandbaby you read to.

    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.

    Little Mean Green Fabric Clips and Mini Clips by Clover
    • Little Mean Greens - Just a small package of 10 - 1-inch transparent slime-lime super-duper strong mini-clips... use these to help keep lots of fabric rolled up or multiple sheets of a chart clipped together. They are a little wider on the finger-grabbing end - so they're easier to hold onto.
    • Mini Clips - A bit smaller than the Mean Greens, teeny weeny, easy to see, and SUPER strong. These come in a package of 20 red and aqua, or a cool little plastic, divided storage box - red, purple, aqua, yellow and green - 10 of each for $30.
