So, along with her preview of designs coming... this offers the monthly calendar pages, and several pages at the end to log special projects, and your needlework-related notes!

You can see from my pics that this book can hang like a traditional wall calendar if you like, but I think it'd be really happy stuffed into your daily stitch tote to help keep you organized! I have some of the inside pictures when you click through the images. Isabelle printed a sticker-sheet of tiny vintage images - so you can decorate your pages and dates a little. This would make a lovely stitcher-friend gift - but get one for YOU too!

Super cute and colorful, the stitch count is 181 x 146... so it'll finish 10 x 13 on 14ct for instance. You can stitch each 'person' individually; they would make darling stand-up blocks, or pumpkin pokes... or even pokes to stick up from the candy dish!

Blackwork Mille Fiori Sampler from The Sweetheart Tree

Blackwork Mille Fiori Sampler
from The Sweetheart Tree
Sandra Vanosdall's 40th Wedding Anniversary Sampler! Presented in leaflet format with a smattering of black glass Paillette embellishments, this explosion of Blackwork finishes only 6 x 10-ish on 36ct.

You can construct it like it is on the cover, or dissect it into smaller bands for borders, ornaments, sewing cases... lots of things. It's so striking because it is such a busy, lacy, delicate, and actually quite bold presentation! Presented in the leaflet with emb packet.
With a Grateful Heart from Artful Offerings - click for more With a Grateful Heart
from Artful Offerings
New from Artful Offerings, Karina writes 'The key to giving Thanks is doing so with a Grateful Heart. Set among amber stalks of wheat, a pair of smitten blackbirds adorn their favorite pom-pom hats while admiring a magnificent orange pumpkin displayed in a black pedestal urn.' Whew, a mouthful!

The birds are truly thankful for the bounty of wheat and pumpkins! She's trimmed the entire scene with stitched faux tea towel stripes. Charted for 36ct linen using Weeks hand-dyed flosses, it measures 7 x 12 when stitched.

Christmas Alphabet from Romy's Creations is Continuing
OP, QR and ST have floated through our shop doors. This is a cute holiday alphabet set of 3 x 3 designs. You can make them into stand-up stacking cubes, stuff them into pin cushions, or flat-finish them onto felt for tree ornaments.

Her subjects are sometimes very different from the norm, so both this set, and the Halloween alphabet, have been fun to see and gather. I like the block around the stylized letter, and the checkerboard borders. Notice we now have the ENTIRE thread set available.

Chasse aux Oeufs from Jardin Prive - click for more Patchwork Halloween from Jardin Prive - click for more Patchwork Christmas from Jardin Prive - click for more Trouvez 'l intrus from Jardin Prive - click for more Red Christmas from Jardin Prive - click for more
Several Fun Charts from Jardin Prive - Spring, Halloween and Christmas!
  • Chasse aux Oeufs - A pretty Quaker-inspired egg-shaped design... this is done on 32ct linen in DMC's of 469, 471, 840, 922 and 3820. So simple but really pretty - you could change the solid flosses to hand-dyeds to give this more depth. It finishes 7 x 9 on 32ct... I would finish it as a flat egg-shape hanging... and maybe do the bunnies in Simply Wool?
  • Patchwork Halloween and Patchwork Christmas - Nathalie has several of these patchwork designs in her collection - they're pretty cute because of all the smalls tucked in the squares. Stitch the 7-1/2 inch sampler on 32ct, or split up the motifs and make cubes, fobs, sewing cases, basket bands, anything. It's easy to manipulate a design like this because all the tiny parts are the same size. Coded for DMC.
  • Trouvez 'l intrus - Ok... I have no idea what the title of this means... but I'm calling them Cute Evergreens! Measuring 200 x 57, this finishes about 4 x 13 on 32ct. Stitched with just DMCs of 370, 732 and 936 greens, and 754, 3781 and white... you COULD just add buttons onto that tree on the end - instead of stitches. I think this lends itself to felt as well... felt applique pieces with your white embroidery stitches on top! Anyway, cute and simple, I love it!
  • Red Christmas - Merry Christmas in a bunch of different languages! This is done in red, but Nathalie suggests a green option, too. Add some beads or metallics... it measures 260 x 260 - so a generous 17 x 17 on 32ct! Very festive, it'd make a gorgeous cushion on a NICE couch - I'd kill anyone who ate Cheetos near it though!

Springtime Beaded Ornament Kits from Mill Hill - click for more
Springtime Beaded Ornaments by Mill Hill
Six cute new beaded kits are on the way to us! Each of the three flowers has it's own visitor friend... and everyone is cheerful and full of color.
Finishing approx 3 x 3, they are stitched on 14ct perforated paper with DMC floss and Mill Hill glass seed beads. They'd also make cute plant pokes or fridge magnets.

Sherman the Fox - Sweater Weather from Cherry Hill Stitchery - click to see more Sherman the Fox - Sweaters Please from Cherry Hill Stitchery - click to see more

Sherman the Fox - Sweaters Please and Sweater Weather
from Cherry Hill Stitchery
We know both of these designs are pretty similar, but little Sherman-the-Fox is pretty 'foxy' in both of them, so we couldn't choose the favorite! I see these stitched and hung above the mitten rack in the back hallway.

Stitched on anything neutral in any count you like, they are coded for DMC and hand-dyeds. They finish 9 x 9 and 4 x 5-ish on 14/28ct... just something cute for the season.

Autumn Acorns 'A Plenty... Our September 2022 Secret Needle Night Kit
Here's a set of 3-inch acorns that need to be stitched, mounted onto sticks and poked into your Trick or Treat Candy Bowl or Fall pumpkins. I've done some other sets of these over the years - for Camp Wannasew, Needlework Galleria and Secret Needle Night, so if you have any of those kits - these companion!

Stitched on 20ct linen, with Perle Cottons, Velvets and Metallics... they're always fun and festive. Our kit comes with charts, needle, threads and fabric cuts... these stitch up in a jiff!

All Hallow's Eve from Erica Michaels - click for more Abundant Table from Erica Michaels - click for more A Shepherd's Care II from Erica Michaels - click for more Christmas Blessings from Erica Michaels - click for more 3 Wise Women from Erica Michaels - click for more
So Many New Arrivals from Erica Michaels
  • All Hallow's Eve - This is so much fun! Stitch the crossword puzzle full of scary and spooky names - lots of fun Halloween motifs are scattered everywhere around it! Choose a darker mangy colored fabric - we have several colors and counts to choose from for this but on 32ct, it measures a mere 7 x 9-ish! (It looks bigger in the picture.) Then... there are those darling little pin drum and berry cushions... Linda has taken the motifs from the puzzle and re-arranged them - so same ingredients, different recipe!
  • Abundant Table - This is an adaptation of an English sampler stitched in 1764. An Armenian table grace prayer, Linda has re-charted this gorgeous piece adding Satin Stitches and 'over one' in the massive and elegant border. She chose Autumn/Harvest colors... but you will see the original colors from the antique inside the chart. Coded for silks or DMC, this needs to be hung in a place of honor in the kitchen or dining room. It measures 209 x 206 - so about 11-1/2 inches square on 36ct. Just GORGEOUS!
  • A Shepherd's Care II companions its first chart of pin cushions all inspired by Linda's antique Christy Barron Sampler. Pretty smalls to display near a larder stitched piece...
  • Christmas Blessings -- This is a combo pattern... the original published design is the small sampler in the lower left corner -- published in 2013 -- stitched on 40ct gauze. Linda has re-worked it for larger count linen - and presents another one on 32ct. You get both charts in the packet - and you can stitch either of them on any count you want - so you don't have to make any snap decisions right now!
  • 3 Wise Women - 'brought nappies, formula and casseroles... then stayed for babysitting, tea and laundry.' I just love this! It needs to hang anywhere babies appear! (Wouldn't it be neat in the Dr's waiting room?) Stitched in just one hand-dyed color, choose any fabric you like - this is a bitty thing, and will finish just 4-1/2 x 6 on 36ct!

Samplings of Lace - Summer - click for more Palace of the Winds - click for more New Designs from Jan Hicks - Samplers of Floral and Lace
  • Palace of the Winds is a pretty piece that has arrived this season - it is full of glorious flowing borders and florals with that half-circle motif in the center stealing the show. Stitch all in one piece or break up into smaller cushions or folded sewing cases. Jan has done this in two different colorways, and has the links inside the chart to the video tutorial dealing with variegated and hand-dyed threads. Manipulating them, learning how to make color decisions based on what's coming next on the strand, and where your chart is going. Maybe skip the variegated totally for a design! Fascinating stuff, and a really pretty design to learn with! Stitched in its entirety, it finishes approx 13 x 14 on 36ct.
  • Samplings of Lace - Summer - Just three small cushions! The featured colors are DMC 153, 550 and 552. Choose a hand-dyed or trio of solids... but maybe choose your trim first so that potential nightmare is avoided! Three ideas for those multiple motifs in Palace of the Winds - Stitch just bits and make a set of cushions instead of the big framed piece! Surely you have an empty elegant silver tray or pretty dish somewhere that's waiting for garnish!

A Little Halloween from Primrose Cottage Stitches
Several new charts are here... all published in 4-color leaflet format with huge, colorful, easy-to-follow charts. They like to put the finished model pics on the inside pages beside the chart offering a nice glimpse of what you are stitching.
  • 13 Spooky Smalls is a collection of nothing larger than 5 x 6. Easy stitching, cute finishing, various fabrics were used, everything is coded for DMC, and the graphics on the 13 pages are good enough that you can duplicate the fun finishes right from the pictures.
  • Halloween Letters - a cute way to spell Halloween down the left-hand side... with fun words across. Worked on your favorite fabric, it'll finish about 7-1/2 inches square on 32ct. Coded for DMC along with a few hand-dyeds, it'd be really cute if you made the ghosts opalescent, the bats sparkley black, maybe even bead the main letters down the left side. A lot of room for special things in this cute design!
  • Witch's Kitchen - She's making a mess... I hope the spiders and bird aren't the next ingredients! DMC and hand-dyeds, this finishes about 6 x 6 on 32ct.
  • The Salem Sisters Apothecary - You're going to need 4 skeins of Weeks Dye Works Kohl to stitch this fun shop sign. On 32ct Country Vintage Mocha, it finishes about 5 x 8. The wooden frame is available for this.. details for ordering are inside the leaflet. You could change 'the salem sisters' to Mom's Apothecary, and then change the date to the year Mom got married and started cooking for her family!
  • Home Sweet Haunted Home - This is a half-sized leaflet pattern - it finishes a little over 4 inches square on 32ct and is worked in Weeks hand-dyed flosses. Just a fun sign to put on the door everyone uses to come into the house - maybe it's the garage door into the back hall... everyone needs to know what they're walking into!

Haunted Woods Needle Slide and Needle Sampler from Just Nan - click for more
New Needle Slides on the Way from Just Nan!
Haunted Woods Needle Slide and Needle Sampler - Nan's newest 1 x 3-ish needle slide features a tiny stitched panel inside! 'The night is dark, and the trees are bare. A bat swoops, eyes glow, and spider webs stir in the wind. A friendly little ghost sequin drifts by.' Inside that scary scene you'll tuck your tiny Haunted Woods sampler - stitched over one on Weeks Dye Works 32ct Tin Roof Linen. More ghosts, bats and a swamp monster hover around a gnarled old tree with a single pumpkin bead sitting by the roots.

The tiny sampler measures 1 x 3 and is backed with orange felt. A magnet holds it in place inside the tin, and a silver ghost charm tucks in there too - to guard your needles! Included with the chart are the finishing instructions, felt, pumpkin bead and silver ghost charm. You'll need a bit of 32ct linen (like 2 x 4 - so find a scrap in your stash) 5 DMC flosses, a bit of interfacing, and a dab of glue.

Autumn Cloche by Liz Matthews - click to see more Hocus Pocus by Liz Matthews - click to see more Loved By You from Liz Matthews - click to see more Poppy by Liz Matthews - click to see more
Liz Matthews has quite a few new designs that are worth a look!
All are here; everything is presented in chart format
  • Autumn Cloche - What a gorgeous garden-under-the glass! Pumpkins and mushrooms, birds, butterflies, snails and spiders! Just delightfully busy to look at, everything in here is fun to look at. I like the spider webs on the leaves. Charted for silks or DMC, stitch this on a light neutral. It's quite large, and finishes almost 10 x 16 on 18/36ct... so pick a fabric you like to work on! Great Autumnal colors... the red and blues are unexpected and a really nice accent.
  • Hocus Pocus - One of Liz's signature designs - just a few simple words - 'It's all just a bunch of Hocus Pocus' is from one of her favorite movies - Disney's Hocus Pocus from 1993. She talks about the extra fabric around her word designs. You can do whatever you like, but she loves finding old frames, and then arranging her words inside - not necessarily centered (although this one is.) The extra fabric space is unexpected and draws your eye to the simplicity of the design.
  • Loved By You - We all know these lyrics by James Taylor too! Another understated design, stitch in Week's Kohl (although it can be any color you want) this showcases Liz's ideas of framing - with the subject off center. Really cool... this would make a classy wedding gift! Don't put the names and dates on the front.. hand-write them on the back paper... maybe even beside the invitation.
  • Poppy - This was inspired by antique herbarium books of pressed flowers. The thread choices are muted to reflect the dried flowers once saved between pages of a book. Liz loves the hand-written labels that often accompany the pressings... so she's provided label artwork you can cut out and incorporate into your framing or finishing. The pink flower is framed between two pieces of glass, (frame at Amazon), its fabric is fringed along the edges and it's mounted onto another soft pastel linen. You can see how she's incorporated the hand-written label idea into the framing. All the framing and finishing details are in the chart.
The Mill House from Kathy Barrick - click to see more Witch Training Academy from Kathy Barrick - click to see more
A Couple of New Offerings from Kathy Barrick for your Fall Stitching!
  • Witch Training Academy - This is cool and eyecatching! That glorious sliver of the moon is watching over everyone in the nighttime sky! The bats and stars (could use metallic accents!) are stationery, but all the young witches are faithfully following their teacher - clad in that old-fashioned and out of style purple plaid skirt! (Check out her tail-light - the candle on her broom!) The pumpkins predict upcoming disaster and the cat just isn't sure about anything! But I LOVE LOVE that curve of the moon... it brings your eye all the way around the piece so you notice everything! Finishes about 8 inches square on 18/36ct - choose a darker mangy fabric to give it that eerie nighttime sky flavor. Coded for DMC or silks.
  • The Mill House - Well, definitely quieter than the Witch Training Academy! Larger-than-life butterflies and that owl in the sky... you know, I kind of like this without all that above and just the mill, alphabet, fence and that cool stream with all the fish and the snake! (Just make the grass come down below the pickets, and you can even leave off the words!) The butterflies are pretty just by themselves and they'd make a gorgeous double-sided pin cushion - one on the top side, one on the bottom side.

Hoot in a Boot from The Needles Notion - click for more Elf Land from The Needles Notion - click for more Elf Land and Hoot in a Boot from The Needle's Notion
Lettie Eckberg has two new designs that are over-the-top cute! She has really outdone herself. Presented in leaflet format, she has great instructions in these... pages and pages of them... (which should NOT scare you away!)
  • Elf Land includes the chart for the Mushroom Cottage scene as well as the 3-dimensional standing elf. The Cottage scene - 8 x 9-1/2 - is on 28ct natural coded for DMC, all the snow is stitched in opalescent metallic. The elf stands 7-1/2 inches tall. Also on 28ct Natural, he has dimensional arms, a removable hat, and a mini heart-shaped pouch. She has all his pieces and parts laid out in chart format, and actual-sized templates for assembling.
  • Hoot in a Boot is super-cute too! Stitched on darker linen, the finished boot measures 10-1/2 x 13 inches. The little owl on top adds another 3-1/2 x 5! Lettie has actual-sized cutting templates in here for these little guys, and mentions that her edges are button-hole stitched no NO SEWING MACHINE IS REQUIRED for finishing! This makes a very festive stuffed holiday door hanging! Coded for DMC and some hand-dyed flosses... again great and very comprehensive assembly instructions included!

Scary Sampler from Heartstring Samplery       Say Coffee from Heartstring Samplery Dressmaker's Sewing Kit from Heartstring Samplery Seahorse Soiree Biscornu from Heartstring Samplery
Heartstring Samplery's Beth Twist has sent new designs!
  • Scary Sampler is the BEST! Beth designed this and stuck in all sorts of references to spooky stuff - all from all her favorite movies and TV shows. 18 Different scary things in here... can you find the Beetlejuice snake, the alien heads and seed pods, the LOST numbers, Cathy's Ghost from Wuthering Heights? Beth lists them all inside the chart, so after you read all that, this is a MUST HAVE! Stitched on Weeks 32ct Cocoa with a variety of hand-dyeds, it finishes approx 15-1/2 x 13-1/2. Stranger Things Demogorgon heads... shovels and hands from The X-Files, even the Death Star! It is really a fun and creative piece!

  • Dressmaker's Sewing Kit - This is a set of three pieces - motifs taken from a larger unfinished antique sampler in Beth's collection: a sewing tray, needle book and drum pin cushion. The little girl who stitched the original sampler 'might have made' these pieces for her sewing kit based on the motifs in her sampler. Beth talks about finishing techniques in here... and color changes... if you want!
  • Seahorse Soiree Biscornu - Beth is in love with the 'quirky, bizarre and crookedness' of biscornu cushions. Since she loves the ocean, she decided a water-party was in order... and invited seahorses, mermaids, whales, turtles, crabs and jelly fish who seem to float everywhere! Colorful and just for fun!

Hocus Pocus, Sneaky Spooky Spells and All Hallows' Eve from Luminous Fiber Arts
Luminous Fiber Arts has three new Halloween designs with a fun, retro flavor.
  • Hocus Pocus has the cutest little kitty - SHE looks spooked! Misty wrote a charming poem and printed it on the back cover of this leaflet - it's about Boo the Black Cat who wanted to visit the moon. Finishes about 3 x 6-1/2 on 18ct.
  • Sneaky Spooky Spells features three panels of designs that you can stack, or stitch singly. Actually I like 'Sneaky' and 'Spooky' just by themselves!
  • All Hallows' Eve sports a wonderful pile of happy pumpkins! The moon is cool, the jumping cat just makes you want to hold up that tilting pumpkin, and I LOVE that white ghost pumpkin in there! Measures 154 x 88, so will finish about 8-1/2 x 5 on 18/36ct. (You could even leave off the gorgeous moon, the bird and the cat... and be left with that fun stack of Jacks!

    October House has a few other knitter-themed designs to stitch as well... we have them pictured on our inside O.H. page. Enjoy!

Home is Where I Hang My Samplers
from The Sampler House
By Sampler House's Eileen Bennett... this has a copyright of 2021 on the chart... but I swear it looks like Classic Eileen Bennett and could have been designed in 1991!

It needs to be stitched and hung among some of your samplers. The stitch count is 129 x 175 - so on 36ct, it'll finish 7 x 10, and it's coded for regular DMC.

The Stitch Witch
from The Tiny Modernist
There are only 6 colors of DMC in this busy portrait - black, white, orange, green, gray and yellow. The Stitch Witch measures about 10 x 13 on 14/28ct, and her world is decorated with the alphabet, tiny stitching scissors, threaders, pins and needles, buttons, her cat and of course, a few ghosts!

They've garnished the edges of the un-framed cover model with various buttons and threads... that's actually kind of a neat suggestion for a shadow box finishing treatment! Presented as a colored-chart leaflet.

from Scattered Seed Samplers
'When you see this, remember me'... The quintessential sampler verse... these two birds make a charming pin cushion.

Stitched on 36ct hand-dyed linen with DMC's of 310, 413, 611, 645, 648 and 3857, it finishes just 4-1/2 x 7-1/2.

The Littles for Every Season
from Waxing Moon
Waxing Moon has a cute 4-seasons set of animal pin cushion designs. They've been gradually releasing but I'm putting them on Just Arrived, because we finally have all 4 of them together!

Coded for Weeks hand-dyed flosses or DMC, each measures only 46 x 46. On 14ct that's 3 x 3... on 40 over one - they're an inch! Choose a fabric you like, or coordinating shades for the seasons. The animals are all different, and several together would make a colorful bowl of personality. I think the sawtooth borders add a lot to the designs, too.
AND NOW! The latest of this series, Halloween Littles, has arrived!

Camberly Sampler and Rackstraw Hill
from Rosewood Manor
Karen Kluba has a pair of new samplers inspired by her few years of living in England.
  • Camberly is a village there... and I think there might be motifs in here taken from her antique sampler from Camberly. 244 x 244 In stitch count, it'll finish 15 inches square on 32ct, coded for DMC.
  • Rackstraw Hill shows a large sampler on the cover - 18 x 10... but Karen has two smaller samplers charted in the book that use most of these same design elements. They aren't pictured, and that's frustrating. We're always after her to design smaller stuff... and there's a darling 110 x 80 Welcome piece with just that little house, the two pots beneath it, and the two medallions above (plus a couple of tiny birds for good measure.) Pretty colors, background fabric shade could go more neutral if you want!

Autumn Petites and Peace on Earth
from Little House Needleworks
Little House Needleworks has two new releases that are here.
  • Autumn Petites is the first of more patterns (for the seasons I presume) that feature 4 tiny 39 x 39 sized designs. Finishing about 2-2/4 inches on 14/28ct, finishing possibilities abound with these. No info yet as to others coming out to coordinate.
  • Peace on Earth is a quiet Christmassy/Winter scene, Diane said it reminds her of her older designs - the Two Red, Blue, and Yellow House charts. Stitched with Classic hand-dyeds, it finishes about 5 x 11 on 32ct Country Vintage Mocha Belfast linen. Stitch a house and one tree... stitch just the words for a tiny, long brick stand-up to perch on a windowsill.

You're a Peach, Valentine!
from Luhu Stitches
Grab a cut of Winterberry Red 14ct perforated paper to stitch this darling paper Valentine from Luhu Stitches! Just 63 x 70, it finishes about 4-1/2 x 5.

Because it's on paper, just back it with more pretty scrapbook paper or some silly kids Valentines... add a magnet, and it's perfect for the frig door - or some place a magnet can cling. Presented as a chart and coded for DMC... you can get 8 of these out of one pack of the perf paper!

Queen Bee Bag
from Shepherd's Bush
Tina and Teri have another stitched mesh pouch design - this one says 'Queen' meaning the Queen Bee. The pin cushion in the pic is simply a miniature version of the design.

We have the Aqua mesh bag, Motherlode Lady Dot trim, Bee Scissors and even that little black polka dot sheath... we have the threads and now the chart - everything you need for this little bag!

Scissor Parrots
Here's something colorful and easy to find in your purse or stitching tote... a little Scissor Parrot! Brightly colored 'pleather' (which is the glamorous name for fake leather or soft plastic!) parrots snap closed at the black eyeball to hold your 3-3/4 inch coordinating polka dot scissors safely inside.

The yellow/green/orange bird includes the lime green scissors, the blue and purple bird includes the light blue polka dots! The sheaths are printed on both sides, and overall measure just 4 inches in total length. I couldn't resist 'em!

Polka Dot Scissor Sheaths! - click to see more Polka Dot Scissor Sheaths! - click to see more
Polka Dot Scissor Sheaths!
Aren't these fun? These are pretty 'pleather' polka dot covers for your scissors. (Pleather is a kind way to say 'fake leather' or 'soft plastic!') Offered in 6 colors and 2 different sizes, the smaller 2-1/2 inch one fits a standard 3-1/2 inch embroidery scissor. The larger 3-1/4 inch sheath will work for 4 to 5-inch scissors. But... actually each will do the job for either size - some just like more shank coverage, and some scissors fit in one size better than the other.

In the pic, I have our 4-inch Antonia by DOVO pictured with the larger sheath, and our 3-1/2 Buckingham by WASA pictured by the smaller ones. (If you have to have a specific color, not a problem, just let us know in the comments box during your check-out process - we'll do our best!)

Strawberry Pie from Fern Ridge - click to see more Strawberry Pie Beaded Fob from Fern Ridge - click to see more Simply Stitches from Fern Ridge - click to see more Simply Stitches Beaded Fob from Fern Ridge - click to see more
The Fern Ridge Collections Ladies have 5 new MINI Needle Case and Scissor Fob Sets and one new Sewing Wallet creation!
We're picturing just two of the sets here... everything is described and pictured on our Fern Ridge page.

Fully kitted, the 2 x 2 needle cases are done on various linens, and usually with hand-dyed flosses and silks. Pat and Peggy decorate the edges and always add lots of tiny pockets and flaps inside their tiny 2 x 2 cases to make them fussy and fun. Since they are the Queens of Beads, and they love embellishments of every kind... you'll get charms or buttons or ribbons or beads on these cases as well. The 3-inch beaded Scissor Fobs are always OVER THE TOP! HERE is where P & P go crazy with all their cool beads. The basic flat beaded part - the picture part - of the fob is about 1-1/2 inches long and worked in Peyote Stitch, which is a beading technique done in-hand, rather than a loom. Instructions can be daunting in the beginning, but these are totally fun to do! Each fob will take approx 3 to 4 hours start to fringed finish. Work the flat beaded area, add that glorious fringe - about 1-1/2 inches of it - and adorn your favorite scissors or a tote zipper pull! Because of the nylon thread you have used, they are stronger than they look! Display your finished sets in the Fern Ridge Scissor Box too! Everything comes fully kitted.
  • Strawberry Pie - Bitty berries - some ripe and some - not so much! A pretty set full of pinks and greens, the fob features white blossom beads and red glass berries in the fringe.
  • Simply Stitches - classy black and white... the case features lots of stitch doodles (haven't seen the inside yet!) but that darling fob steals the show again! They found a tiny dice bead, and a fun silver X - a cross stitch! I like all the little cube beads down in the fringed area.

Catharine Croft from Scarlett House - click for more Catharine Croft House Pin Cushion from Scarlett House - click for more Gathering Together from Scarlett House - click for more Mary Ann Smith 1835 from Scarlett House - click for more
New Arrivals from The Scarlett House
  • Catharine Croft - Tanya presented this delightful set of smalls and the bigger sampler mat when she came for a weekend event in our She Shed last year! Catharine's sampler is finished as a flat hemmed doily/mat. It's full of alphabets done with specialty stitches, so it's fun to look at. Next is the berry pin cushion, and it's coordinating needle case, there is a bird mounted on a flat board for a scissor fob... but my FAVORITE part is the darling House Pin Cushion! I have a pic of my stitched piece - linen is even still wrinkled because it's not assembled yet! Delightful sheep on the little striped hills and pretty trees in the yard - and even a little dog! The 6-sided tray in the pic was something we did in class... so not something included in the pattern set.of charts. A fat quarter of fabric will do for all - 36ct Picture This Plus Faun is suggested.
  • Gathering Together - As friends! We did this too at our She Shed event! Hobby Lobby used to have cool little metal trays - and this fit into one of those. Keep your eyes out for stuff like that - wood, metal, paper mache - anything you can paint or distress to finish some stitching! This little 5 x 7 piece is full of Tanya's color palette of dark reds and greens with gunmetal grays. Stitched on Picture This Plus Wren, Weeks flosses, presented as a chart.
  • Mary Ann Smith 1835 - This is a very organized sampler! Again, Tanya's dark reds, mossy greens and this time lots of Taupe; I don't THINK there are special stitches in the alphabets and borers, but there sure could be if you wanted to add them. Saw Tooths, queens, Eyelets, Herringbones, Rice... just get busy! It measures 278 s 271 - so a generous 14 inches squarish on 40ct!

  • Oh What Fun! - Satsuma Street gives us quite a colorful and bright Christmas Stocking pattern... full of Peace, Love and Joy - literally! Finished size is 10 x 16 on 14ct, alphabet chart and finishing instructions are included.
  • The Animal House - Something darling for a kid's room... there are animals popping out of the windows and door everywhere! This would be fun as a door hanger on 7ct... and you could name the animals in backstitch. Or you could stitch it on any regular-sized fabric, and add bright metallics and buttons or charms. You could even split the house parts and stitch just the front door with the peacock, just the tower with the giraffe or just the monkey one. The colors make this just delightful!
  • Pretty Little Greece - The newest in Jodi's series of international cities and countries. A stylized medley of everything special to that place... we have about 18 other destinations that might tantalize you. See how many you have visited!

Lots of New Designs from Teresa Kogut! coming our way!
  • In Our Home - "Let love abide and bless those who step inside." This was our Summer Event piece from Teresa (summer of 2021)... so if you wanted to come and missed it... here's your second chance! Model is worked on 40ct hand-dyed... just about any count and neutral color will work for this. It finishes about 11-1/2 x 14 on the 40. DMCs and Classic Colorworks... pretty colors, very eyecatching!
  • Tabby's Halloween - Our 'generous' kitty is all dressed for a Halloween party. On 40ct, she measures only 4 x 5-1/2... and here she is simply mounted onto an old book, and trimmed with rik rak! A 2-minute finish that is charming, gentle on the budget, and unique!
  • Whimsey Witch's Angry House - The witch doesn't look angry, and the cat and pumpkin aren't copping an attitude - but that little house IS! Finishing just 4-1/2 x 6 on 40ct, this uses DMC. It's mounted onto a craft pumpkin board from Hobby Lobby, and trimmed with Lady Dot mini ball fringe trim.
Hello Halloween Book from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Hello Halloween Book-just 3 of the designs from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more
Hello Halloween Book from Teresa Kogut!
This is a book that contains 11 full color Halloween designs. The main Sampler shown the cover is so cool! I love love love all the repeating rows of motifs, and the repeating cat border. The differently dressed witches are cute, and the haunted house at the bottom makes a great pic of it own - especially if you add that tree over on the left. 220 x 330 - This finishes approx 12 x 18 on 36ct... a mixture of DMC's and hand-dyeds.

Shown above are just 3 of the included designs: Vintage Cats are in here... stitched on Weeks Tiger Eye hand-dyed linen... each measures a generous 4-1/2 x 7-1/2. Onward Black Kitty is quite the vision! Looks like it came from an antique postcard... I think kitty is more scared of the moon than the witch! The Goode Witch - another offering in the book... here's another that you can split apart - do just the kitty on pumpkin, or leave that part out, and now the scarecrow is getting the prize offered by the witch!

Rudy Star Ornament from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Jingle Bells Star Ornament from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Jolly Truck Star Ornament from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more
Three Little Stars! from Teresa Kogut!
Rudy, Jingle Bells and Jolly Truck - these three are offered as individual charts. Each is 70 x 61 and stitched on 16/32ct, they finish approx 4-1/2 inches in size. Rudy and Jungle Bells are done on 32ct Onyx by Weeks Dye Works, and are trimmed in dark navy mini-ball fringe. They probably won't show up much on a green Christmas tree - so be thinking bowl-fillers here!

Jolly is done on Confederate Gray but still trimmed in the same dark blue ball trim... and I think I'd stick him in the same bowl as his buddies. Teresa also have a few other 'star' pieces (that we have available on her page)... so I think we're working on a collection here!

Cute new things from Heart in Hand - Halloween and Christmas come early this year!
  • Halloween Tiny Town and Halloween Frill - One medium chart and another smaller to companion. Cecilia has friendly ghosts as hosts, and pink pumpkins at each gate post! Joining her other little towns... all 2 x 10-ish... she's added a fun EXTRA house in the Frill Chart. You can add the witch, or change out one of the now-existing houses in town... whatever you want to do. Medium-sized chart.
  • Imprints: Harvest and Home - Two stencil-style designs - not many colors, small to stitch - these would be cute perched among your pumpkin and dried corn display!
  • Wee One: Santa 2022 - Cecilia's annual Santa design, this year Santa is dressed in pinks, reds and greens - quite a different color palette! He's holding birdseed to feed his feathered friends who help with his Christmas prep! Offered in small card format, we still have at least the last 10 years of Santa charts - everyone has its own personality.
  • Pocket Round December 25th - A bitty design that fits the top of the tiny Gray Heartware handmade stoneware bowl. (Bowls come in cream and we still have a few limited edition red bowls as well!) Cecilia shows the finished round kind of large - too big for the top of the bowl. We think you can finish it a full inch smaller and it'll still fit on the bowl - and you'll SEE the bowl peeking from underneath. Anyway, Rudolph's tail is actually a white flower button which is included in the chart.

New Arrivals from Hands On Designs
  • Stitch Some Happy - Here's a small design to finish into a round cushion, bag tag, ornament or name tag! Worked on 32ct Flax Belfast linen with DMC's of 163, 169, 347, 733, 3328, 3799 and 3816, there is a little rik-rak trim accenting the edges - choose any color from the palette and it'll be darling! Offered as the small chart... trim and flosses from your stash.
  • Tomayto, Tomahto - Love this delicious design! Make that fun little 5-inch wool/fabric pinch tray, then fill with the stitched bottom panel. Cross Stitched on 16/32ct (a gray color looks good against the reds, a 9 x 9 cut will suffice), the fantastic tomatoe cushion is done on Weeks Dye Works 32ct Aztec Red linen. (You'll need a 12 x 9 cut) Top trimmings are Weeks hand-dyed wools, (You'll need a schnigglet cut of any of our green Weeks wools) and the little ladybug on the pin VERY closely resembles the Mill Hill ladybug treasure #12159. Just a cute and unique little set - there is a link to the finishing tutorial included in the chart. Let us know if you need any or all of the 'ingredients' for this!
  • The Autumn Basket - A trio of small quilt-motif designs - each is 67 x 67 on 32ct. DMC floss - they finish approx 4 x 4 - and then your gorgeous quilted finishing. Small chart format.
  • Resting Witch Face - This Resting Face joins Beach and Stitch! Choose a gray-toned fabric, DMC flosses and cute ribbon, rik,rack or chenille trim and you're all set! Finishes approx 4 inches, small chart format.
A Witch In Her Garden from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more Joy & Good Cheer from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more
A Pair of Seasonal Designs from With Thy Needle's Brenda Gervais - each is offered as its own chart.
  • A Witch In Her Garden - Here's a rather charming-looking witch gardening among her pumpkins and sunflowers. The design is approx 2-1/2 x 9-1/2 on 36ct Country Vintage Mocha Linen, but because Brenda finished this into a drum shape, it's now a petite pin cushion! She pleated her velveteen topping fabric a little, added some puffy, and found a great pumpkin stem to poke into the center - so now her drum looks like a pumpkin! Stitched with DMCs and a few hand-dyeds... perch it on a painted wooden candle pedestal base.
  • Joy & Good Cheer - A frosty little snowman seems to be growing out of the urn right there in the front yard! A cozy house, and deep red winter berries, the bird is probably chirping out those words of Joy and Good Cheer! You know, that little bird and his branch - all by themselves would be a cute ornament... and so would the snowman in the urn! The whole design measures 121 x 73 - just 4 x 6-1/2 on 36ct. DMCs and handyeds are called for.

Diane has charming designs - kind of her signature feature are the words she always uses that are incorporated into the design. Everything is offered in chart pack format... and as always a lot of them are suitable for multiple different fabric colors and counts... makes your decisions harder!
  • Zip It - Well... Whimiscal and fun...*Lord, fill my mouth with worthwhile stuff and ZIP IT when I've said enough!* Stitched with hand-dyeds on anything neutral, this measures about 6 x 9 on 32ct. It would be fun to make a little brick stand-up block out of this and garnish the finishing with actual zippers! Probably appropriate to display this in 'way more places that we think!'
  • Kringle Flying Academy - 'Rooftop Landings since 1823.' (The Night Before Christmas was published in December of 1823! First place to announce Santa landing of rooftops!) Great colors on this holiday piece, it'd be fun to add metallics to the moon and snow! We have lots of gorgeous smoky, mangy blues for that night sky - in multiple counts - so choose what you want to work on. It measures 147 x 96... so on 14ct would be 7 x 10-1/2, or about 5 x 8 on 36. Very vintage in flavor!
  • Mary Rotters Spelling Lesson - This is really cute... read those entertaining spelling words! It actually would be fun to practice this with your 3rd grade grands... then serve them cupcakes decorated with those candy eyes! Measures 8 x 9 on 14/28ct, and coded for DMC Diane writes: It's Mary's first day at Frogwarts School of Wizardry. She dreams of being an elite part of the Hall of Fame, having her picture honorably hung next to her famous cousin, Harry. However, she must first learn to spell!
  • A Perfect Match - Moving from creepy Halloween into Love and Happiness... this might make a cute shower or anniversary gift. You could leave off the hands and arms to make it 'less wedding' if you need to, and just more 'daily feel the love!' Measures about 6 x 10 on 32ct, and coded for DMC. Diane shares her lovely love story about puzzles and her husband.
  • Button Your Lip - 'Before you let unkind words slip - grab a button and button your Lip!' Kind of a companion to Zip It...Diane's inspiration began with her family button jar. Her Mom would point to it and warn to 'Button that lip!' Coded for Weeks or DMC, this finishes about 3 x 4 on 36ct.
  • For Unto Us - 'A Child is Born.' - Could be a Christmas piece or a new baby announcement... probably changing the manger/arbor over the letter O would make it more contemporary and less Christmassy. But either way - A new baby is a big deal! Finishes about 3-1/2 x 5-1/2 on 32ct.

Each house measures 97 x 87... is stitched with DELICIOUS colors of hand-dyeds (DMC conversions included) and finishes approx 5 x 5. Lady Dot trims are featured on the cushions.

  • Autumn Crow from Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery - A sweet little piece, this is only 60 x 60 and is worked with hand-dyeds or DMC. Presented in a small chart format.
  • Bluebirds and Bluebells Sampler from Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery - This pretty sampler measures a whopping 251 x 332 - so on 36ct will finish about 14 x 18. The pattern includes finishing ideas for the pin cushion and scissor case - kind of a reminder that you can make lots of fun things out of all the different motifs and borders in this. Lots of hand-dyeds.

Christmas and Halloween designed the AB Designs Way!
Amy Bruecken is releasing 4 new charts for stitching fun!
  • Little Cuties are 4 little ornament-sized penquin, snowmen and red bird pieces - just 25 x 41 in stitch count. Itty bitty - on 28ct they are less than 2 x 3. Weeks flosses, the pillow ornaments on the cover pic offer cute finishing ideas. All 4 designs are in the pattern.
  • Hocus Pocus and Little Pumpkin Friend - Ms Pocus is stitched on splattered Lugana - but she'd be cute on a wild hand-dyed fabric color as well. DMC for her, she's only 88 x 75 - so about 4 x 5. Little Pumpkin Friend is only 30 x 37 - and he'd make a cute poke for your candy dish.
  • HoHoHo puts us in a Christmas Spirit - He's done on 32ct petit point natural linen with Weeks Dye Works hand-dyeds. I love the soft greens and the deep reds this year... he's not even 5 x 6!
  • Every Little Thing - I can just hear those song lyrics in my head... again the soft greens in this one. I see wreaths on the front doors, but don't really get a Christmas-vibe with this... so I think you can stitch this to hang all year long! 181 x 73, It'll finish 13 x 5 on 14/28, and uses Weeks handyeds.

Our Stitcher is stocking up with thread - check out the horse-drawn wagon with the spools, the gigantic tomato pin cushion and that DARLING LITTLE FOX perched atop all! They are all enjoying the natural Fall beauty by stitching outside in the yard - the chipmunks and birds all over the yard are staying out of the way - for now! Pretty colors of good 'ol DMC - 8, 300, 356, 413, 422, 435, 500, 680, 730, 831, 838, 841, 918, 950, 2, 3012, 3022, 3046, 3051, 3857 and ecru. It's a pretty scene!

We're crossing the holidays with these two new releases by Susanamm Cross Stitch. Really cute pieces both are presented as charts. Susana's charts can be a little challenging as the flag, for instance, is full coverage, and her symbols are quite similar side by side in the chart. Coded for DMC.
  • Cute Pumpkin is stitched on Weeks Havana hand-dyed linen - a khaki color of Aida will work too. Coded for 33 shades of DMC, it measures 132 stitches square - so it finishes about 8 inches square on 32ct. It looks like fun to stitch... you might just need to blow up the chart a little to tell the symbols apart... but there is lots of solid, so it's easy to work on!
  • Cross Stitch Quilt #19 - Measures 126 x 168. Doesn't matter what you work on, as it's all covered - so chose something you LIKE to work on!

Quite an eyecatching piece, it uses 10 different shades of DMC red, blue and ecru. This will finish approx 8 x 11 on 32ct.

Magnetic Color Wheel Minders from Accoutrements
Wow... is THIS a fun little thing! Meant to be a Needle Minder - it's actually 2 inches in diameter, about 1/4 of an inch in thickness, and it weighs about an ounce and a half. It is LOVELY! Basically it's an enameled color wheel with a rotating overlay (the white wheel part) that offers instant info for color matching!

We had to Google all about the Color Wheel... which was fun. We learned that this little gizmo can show you color combinations that look good together, besides being pretty and fun to play with! A little on the heavy side just to have on your fabric to hold needles... it'd be awesome by your stitching lamp.

The 2022 Winter Series Button & Beaded Kits
Our massive collection of 5 x 5 beaded and stitched designs is growing with these 6 new designs! If you've been in the shop, you are quite familiar with our 'Great Walls' of stitched kits - all on various colors of 28ct linen. Each kit comes with DMC flosses, a load of Mill Hill glass seed beads and 14ct perforated paper (which is super easy to work on.) We started doing our models on 28ct linen just for fun, and like them just a well on fabric... so we offer separate cuts of material as well, just in case. Aurora Borealis features the new Mill Hill Glow-in-the-Dark beads - so it really does look a little more 'glisteny.' Santa's Clothesline is super cute and colorful. The Blue Jay is full of frosty opalescent whites and crisp blues - good to enjoy all winter long. Ski Dog is darling - he's waiting for you to HURRY UP!

Simply cut the paper off right outside the design - and you're finished! (Don't use your delicate embroidery scissors to cut. Choose something a little more heavy duty - like our Dr Slick SN65 synthetic scissors - larger handles, they are super-duper and will even cut leather!) Enjoy a cup of hot cocoa with a marshmallow snowman! The Garland has tiny danglers - so will look good on the very tip of a branch. Winter Barn comes right out of a Hallmark movie and Cheers celebrates New Year's. The Cuckoo Clock has Santa filling stockings on Christmas Eve - all in that bitty design area! - and the Ceramic tree is meant to offer a nostalgic look into the decorations of Christmas Past.

New Designs from Artful Offerings
Artful Offerings has a lot of new designs that are bold and eye-catching! I have NINE that we are adding to her inside pages... so have a peek at the rest, too! Whether you finish them as pillows, as she shows, or frame them, they're all darling!
  • American Sailboat Sampler - Katina writes, "This vintage-look Americana design celebrates Liberty, Freedom and the 4th of July! An eagle is perched atop the mast, high above the red, white and blue sails. Splendid golden laurel wreaths embellish the anchor motifs and a small upper case alphabet completes this simple summertime sampler." I love the graphic lines in this design - the stripes and dots on the flag sails... the swirls of waves and the balance of the anchors! Finishing approx 10 inches on 18/36ct, it is coded for DMC or hand-dyeds.
  • God Bless America Sampler - Katina's comments on this read, "God Bless America features a beautiful barn with spires, quilt-block-style stars and an eagle weathervane. An American Flag flies above the barn and the border features golden laurel leaves with red, white, and blue flowers." A grand upper case alphabet fills the sky - kind of like clouds! Measures about 9 x 9 on 18/36ct, and coded for DMC or hand-dyeds.
  • Patriotic Pinwheel Parade - This adorable colony of bunny-rabbits has decided to put on the most amazing patriotic parade using the paper pinwheels they have crafted! Each bunny is dressed in their finest red, white and blue apparel and ready to go. Mr Rabbit has been chosen to lead the parade and fly the colors, while toddler-bunny discovers new and creative ways to use a pinwheel! Finishes approx 11 x 5 on 18/36 - this is coded for DMC or hand-dyeds!

from Sweet Wing Studio
  • Forever in Peace - This is a really cool new design by Sweet Wing Studio... it LOOKS like it's full of specialty stitches, but it is simply stitched patterns of color! Our Flag.... stitch it with or without the words... it's pretty either way! Coded for DMC or various hand-dyed flosses, the flag part measures 60 x 90, so you could get that part 3 x 4-1/2 on 20... or even 2 x 3-1/2 over one on 28ct Lugana! And, since the chart is solid symbols... it's probably easier to stitch this off the chartpack cover - the picture is clear and big enough! This just really caught our eye... and shop model is already off to the stitcher!
  • Bless and Keep - 'The Lord bless you and keep you...' I can hear the church hymn in my head! Measuring 62 x 94, this is coded for DMC and/or hand-dyeds and finishes a mere 4 x 6 on 32ct. Choose a darker fabric so the white lettering shows up - as it does in the pic.

Wow... check out these beautiful magnets to hold needles, notes and patterns in place! Beautifully made, and surprisingly lightweight for their size, this is a delightful collection of 'needle curiosities!'

Presenting Dr Slick Razor-Sharp Scissors
Coming to us from the Fly-Fishing Industry are these incredible 3-1/2 and 4-inch scissors with huge "Gold Loop" finger holes, that can handle some pretty serious cutting needs! Wonderfully rounded handles with a nice weight to them, these feature larger finger holes and wonderfully fine and sharp precision cutting blades.Dr Slick SN60 3-1/2 Inch Arrow The blades feature a very fine micro-serration to them which keeps your threads where you want them when you cut them, and yet they feel as smooth as butter.

As far as the finger holes go, we have a comparison picture showing the difference between our DOVO embroidery scissors and the handles of these scissors on our scissor page... along with lots of other specific scissor details. Dr Slick uses words like 'hypodermic sharp' to describe their tips, and Tungsten Carbide vs Stainless Steel to describe some of the metals. All I know is that they have a really nice balance and weight to them, they cut like a dream, and the blades and tips are SHARP. Actually almost too big for my hands... I know lots of you will LOVE these!
