Vonna Pfieffer is releasing a video finishing tutorial on these today, too!
Let Freedom Ring from Lila's Studio
This is a beautiful piece that will finish an impressive 15 x 19 on 32ct. Released in 2017... we've had it, but I didn't pay attention to it until recently. Just lovely, Independence Hall is so pretty with the trees in the background. All the windows, the arches, the hand-dyed threads making the bricks look real... the billowing flag and cracked Liberty Bell... this piece makes quite a statement!
25 Shades of DMC along with 6 hand-dyeds... the building is Classic Colorworks Calico Kitty, and the trees are Endive, both of which require 4 skeins of thread. Lila has done an excellent job with the chart - it's huge, full of contrast and has symbols next to each other that are EASY to tell apart. Just whip this right up - it'd look great in the Family room or an office!
Sunflowers and Crows from Fern Ridge Collections
Seems like we're just getting past the sunflower and crow season... so technically you have a year to get ready for them again with these! Fern Ridge's matching beaded scissor fob and pin cushion set is FULL of lip-puckering late fall color. The linen for the 3-1/2 x 5 cushion is 28ct Riviera Olive - a strong olive green, and the flosses are bright golden yellow, deep burgundy, along with crisp green and cinnamon. The complete kit contains that fabric and thread, along with the Chianti Lady Dot Ball edging trim, the hand-dyed silk ribbon to hold a pair of your scissors, coordinating batik backing fabric, the JABCO clay sunflower button and 4 burgundy corner buttons, and the little glass black crow pin by The Glasshopper.
The matching Peyote Stitched beaded fob is stunning! Those beads and crystals in the fringed decoration really pick up the light... I can't stop playing with all that beaded fringe! This kit comes with everything you need to make that piece - which should take you 4 to 6 hours to complete.

Stitched with Classic Colorworks or DMC floss, what a cute Wintery decoration. The verse comes from the original story book, we just love it all! You'll need multiple skeins (20 total) of the hand-dyed flosses, so get it all at once so dye lots match.
from Barbara Ana
This is cute... you have to look at the tiny scenes a little! The pretty border of plump berries surrounds 9 smaller ornament-sized pieces - the WHOLE THING finishes only 9-1/2 inches square on 32ct.
Each of the small scenes measures 39 x 39 stitches and features Santa delivering gifts on a reindeer, rabbit, cat, pig and even in his sleigh. All the sleepy city buildings are below... and one panel even offers a KEY because there aren't enough chimneys! A very attractive piece, it is coded for just 11 shades of regular DMC floss. Wouldn't it look great as small cushions all nestled in a wooden bowl?
Fa La La from Madame Chantilly
What a fun little group of carolers! Looks like a mom, dad, grandpa and a couple of kids all happily singing (while not social distancing or wearing masks!) And it's CHARMING! Toss in the lamp post and tree if you want!
Stitched with just 10 shades of DMC floss, it measures 200 x 113 so finishes approx 6 x 11 on 36ct linen or 18ct Aida. The little mouse is shown stitched as an individual ornament - he or she measures a petite 30 x 40 stitches - you could stitch a bunch of these for your choir friends! Very cute, presented as a chart.
The Holiday Hoedown from Petal Pusher
Remember Halloween Hoedown, our little set of barnyard animals all dressed up for Trick or Treat? Petal Pusher's Barbie Tingley has released her Barnyard Party for Christmas - here they are! Moo-dolf is a cow, Heavenly Hog is an angel-pig! The tree in the center has a little chicken there... it's O Chickmas Tree. Frosty the Snow Ram is the sheep that comes next, and finally Whinny the Elf is the little horse.
Each animal is available separately to stitch as individual ornaments - they measure about 4 x 5 with all the background and picket fence borders, but smaller just by themselves. You can join the barnyard together into the main hoedown piece - it finishes about 5 x 16. The Holiday Hoedown border is presented across the 5 charts. Coded for DMC, they are just darling!
Gnome for Christmas
from Shannon Christine Designs
Here's a quick little design that finishes only 6 x 6-ish on 32ct... full of cute Christmas gnomes. Actually, that smallest one is only 30 stitches high, so he makes a perfect ornament just by himself.
Charted for just a few DMC colors, nothing involved... the shades are easy to change so you can stitch them in grays and greens too. Just cute and quick.

Really no finishing required... we put sticky felt on the backs of ours... then cut them out with cheap scissors (cause the felt is a sticky mess on the blades), and that's it. You could attach a little paper easel on the backs to make them stand-up if you like. Quite a collection of these Santas, snowmen, angels and penquins so far from Jim Shore by Mill Hill!

One Nation Under God - Liberty
from Twin Peak Primitives
This is quite the piece by Twin Peaks (all the way from The Netherlands!) Stitched on 36ct (329 x 310), it'll finish approx 18 x 18 - you won't lose THIS on the wall! The pattern refers to Rustico Aida, but also Picture This Plus's Wren color... so those should give you an idea of fabric choices.
It is coded for DMC or Weeks hand-dyed flosses - 18 different shades. It's really very pretty, and I especially like the big floral pots up by the words. (Do one of those if you haven't got time to stitch this whole thing!) And we love those billowing flags too!
A Banner Year! Snow Much Fun!
from Hands On Design
The second Banner Year design arrives before most of us have enjoyed our first snowfall! Skiing, Skating and Sledding, these are worked on 32ct Antique White Belfast Linen with either DMC or hand-dyeds, and feature Lady Dot's new 'Flakey' shade of Rik Rak trim.

Jolly Old St Nick and Holiday Farm Animals - A pair of fun Christmas designs from Imaginating
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!
Something Wicked Box & Smalls and Banner & Biscornu

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!

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

(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!

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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
Bring on the Flamingos!
Hands On Design introduces a mini-series of flamingos just in time to stitch and finish for The Holidays!
Presented in three separate card-charts, they are stitched on 32ct Icelandic Blue linen using Weeks Dye Works flosses of Aztec Red, Blackboard, Dirt Road, Hibiscus, Hunter, Lichen, Sockeye, Verdigris and Whitewash.
You'll want the 'Pinki Poms' mini ball trim featured on the finish for these - no matter how you assemble them!

Spread Joy and Jingle All the Way are the final two Santa designs in this cute set! All are available separately, in case you missed some of them!

Halloween Calendar by Tiny Modernist
This is a fun piece... each day of the month has its own 32 x 31 square, and all of them feature something different, small and CUTE! Stitched on 32ct Twilight Blue linen - we have some dynamite Picture This Plus hand-dyeds that Praiseworthy Stitches features for all their Christmas and Haunted Houses that would be really cool with this as well.

As cute as can be, this is coded for only 14 shades of regular DMC floss. (Ohhh what about beads and thin metallics and some buttons?)
Another new Animal Biscornu

This darling little Koala arrived this week... he joins Tiny Modernist's set of whimsical pin cushions - most of which are unusual animals we don't get to stitch much! You can make JUST one of the small corner motifs for an ornament or a fob, or just one side of the two-sided cushons - whatever you have time for.
The whole set so far is pictured on our Tiny modernist page... cute as can be! Each is offered in a single small card chart format, so you can pick and choose favorites.

Summer House Stitche Workes has a pretty series of garden flowers, each stitched on 32ct Beige linen and finishing 5-1/2 inches square. There are six florals in the set - each offered in a separate chart, and they are coded for DMC or Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses.Beth Ann describes them as her whimsical garden!
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!
New Advice for 2020 from Sticks and Mill Hill!
'Be the person your dog thinks you are.' 'Leave only footprints.' 'Happy Halloween' and 'Wish on a star.' Mill Hill has 4 new designs by the artist Sticks that have been converted to cross stitch.
Presented as complete kits of 14ct perforated paper, all the necessary DMC floss and a few Mill Hill glass beads for a little sparkle, these finish a generous 7 inches square. They do have kind of a lot of stitching on them, but WOW - the color impact is fantastic! Great artwork, cheerful designs and colors... we have 20+ designs in this collection so far, and several stitched shop models too!
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!!!
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!
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!
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!
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 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!'
Mill Hill's 2020 Holiday Button & Bead Kits are Here!
The Holiday Button & Beaded Kits - These are the 5-inch ones - complete kits of 14ct perforated paper, lots of DMC floss and tons of glass seed beads. Each design comes with a hand-made ceramic button embellishment as well.... ALWAYS fun to make!
The 2020 Winter Holiday Ornament Kits from Mill Hill
Winter Holiday - These are the 3-inch ornament-size, perfect for a Christmas Tree! Each complete kit comes with 14ct perforated paper, all the necessary flosses and beads, and a small glass Treasure or charm embellishment of some sort, and a small magnet for finishing - in case you don't want to make an ornament. 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.
Antarctic Santas, the 2020 Santa Ornament Kits from Mill Hill
Antarctic Santas - This year's trio of International Santas - everyone loves these! Something like the 25th YEAR for these... there are a ton of Santas from everywhere, doing everything fun - perfect to commemorate a vacation you took that year, or a favorite hobby. Finishing about 4-1/s inches high, they are stitched on 14ct perforated paper and feature a few smatterings of glass beads, not too many, though. All of them have a fun white floss beard treatment - have you noticed that over the years?
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.

Project Quarantine: Stay Home & Stitch! from With Thy Needle & thread
Look what showed up in our mail this morning! What a fun project to tantalize your stitching fingers and keep your heart happy... Let's Stay Home and Stitch! Stitched on anything you like, the area inside the little hoop is worked over one thread - so keep that in mind when choosing fabric, the satin stitches on the spools of thread will be ok no matter what you use. It finishes approx 3 x 7-1/2 on 36ct.
Brenda sent a really lovely letter with the shipment... she is donating $1.00 for each of these patterns sold to Center for Disaster Philanthropy Covid-19 Response Fund. The donations to this fund will support non-profit organizations working in areas identified as having high numbers of affected individuals and those working with the most vulnerable populations. Areas of emphasis include helping health-care workers with purchases of masks, gowns, gloves and other protective equipment, supporting quarantined and vulnerable individuals, and hygiene promotion campaigns to limit the spread of the virus.
