A Changed World and Caroline Suffling 1848 from The Scarlett House
Tanya Brockmeyer of The Scarlett House has two new releases that she debuted at our Silver Needle Stitching Event this past weekend! I couldn't put them up until she was on her way home - they were our surprise for the weekend!
  • A Changed World reflects her 'thoughts' about what we've all been through this past year... *The world has changed, and so have we. Learning to be still, yearning to be free.* There's also a lesson-for-life near the bottom - *Truth can be very elusive to man. With faith as our compass resolutely we stand.* It's a really pretty piece, full of Tanya's color palette of brick reds, navy, deep greens and creams... it finishes approx 8 x 13 on 36ct linen. We had the model here for our several day event... and found that lots of linen colors look good for this. Coded for DMC or silks, the trees are neat, the row of houses is quaint and charming... it was quite a favorite!
  • Caroline Suffling 1848 - A reproduction piece, this offers quite the lesson for life as well! It's a reminder to honor God and not to be tempted with youthful ways! Finishing about 8-1/2 x 10 on 40ct, this is coded for silks or DMC. This one would be pretty split, and finished into a sewing roll... choose either the top or bottom for the outside, then the other for the inside - just a thought!

Here's the next season of the same darling farm animals all decked out for their annual parade! They are the same pig, cow, horse, sheep and chickens. Just like Halloween Hoedown and Holiday Hoedown... these little guys all come in individual charts, but can be stitched together.

Just the cutest, you'll love the names too: Uncle Ham, Moo-other of Freedom, Ewe Lil' Firecracker, Patriot Reins and Chicks on Parade! Stitched on 32ct Sand and coded for DMC, lots of places you could add metallics and beads if you want! This is one busy farmyard of animals!

Believe... Our June 2021 Secret Needle Night Kit

Our complete kit contains the 18ct natural Linen, all the frizzy, fuzzy and metallic threads, the little pom pom trimming Santa's hat, and the glass bugle and pebble beads.

June Arrivals from Stitching With The Housewives
  • August Calendar Crate - Sunflowers exploding everywhere on this, they'd make cute individual cushions or plant pokes too! Finishes approx 7 x 7.
  • Queen Bee Bakery - The next little cake-plate setting... more small motifs you can split up into stand-ups or whatever. There's a lot happening in the little 5 x 7!
  • And To All a Good Night - The sleepiest little village... it looks like the middle of the night because the sky is dark, but so are the windows! Good thing because Santa is up there in the sky too! Finishing approx 4-1/2 x 18... choose something dark to stitch this on. We're hearing awesome things about lighter colors of fabrics for Priscilla and Chelsea's designs, so if the black is too hard for you - go to a blue?

Sleepy Hollow Lodge
from Little House Needleworks
Here's a most welcoming log cabin-in-the-country scene. If you're lucky enough to have a little cabin like this... change out the name for YOURS and put YOUR family established date up there at the top!

For the rest of us, Sleepy Hollow finishes about 6 x 9 on 32ct Summer Khaki Linen, and for all of us... it's coded for Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses or DMC. A happy little place!

From Nature To My Needle from The Blue Flower -  click for more Saltwater Scrapbook from The Blue Flower -  click for more Strawberry Bird from The Blue Flower -  click for more
Jeannine McGowan of The Blue Flower has three new releases!
  • From Nature To My Needle - *I count not my day complete 'till needle, thread and fabric meet.* Kind of the Stitcher's Creed, this measures approx 13 inches square on 36ct. The pretty nature-inspired border is full of little creatures and flowers, and Jeannine shows the center part stitched all by itself as another option for this. It's coded for DMC... 22 different shades.
  • Saltwater Scrapbook - This is a delightful set of small designs - all with a seaside/saltwater theme. Jeannine's favorite squirrels are building sandcastles... and that octopus really loves his beach house! This is one half of a collaboration between Blue Flower and Lindy Stitches... the back cover of this chart shows all 9 smalls stitched together. Coded for DMC.
  • Strawberry Bird - A pair of elegant birds at home in their billowing strawberry vine... I don't think the berries on there are going to last very long! Coded mostly for DMC with a trio of hand-dyed cottons, it finished approx 5 x 5 or 6 x 6 dependng on your fabric selection.

My Home in the Garden by Liz Matthews - click to see more Old Friends from Liz Matthews - click to see more 4th Day of Christmas by Liz Matthews - click to see more Klara Hansen by Liz Matthews - click to see more
New Designs by Hello from Liz Matthews
  • My Home in the Garden - Liz is a gardener, so she's created this using all the colors in her garden. Along with the sunshine yellows and sky blues, she's added all the charming stylized flowers. Finishes approx 11 x 12-1/2 on 32ct... these bands would be super pretty stitched individually and then finished into a set of drum-shaped cushions - you could leave on the alphabet, or not - and just have rounds and rounds of flowers! Look at the Klara Hansen piece.
  • Old Friends - *Your heart and my heart are very old friends.* So simple, it just says everything! Of course you can change fabric and thread colors... I hope you have another heart to stitch this for!
  • 4th Day of Christmas - This is part of an on-going series... BUTTTT you don't have to collect and stitch them all! (Break that cross-stitch-law!) This chart offers both design options, so colorful, I don't know which is my favorite. Liz does have lots of finishing tips for the tree on her Floss Tube channel, so don't let that neat finish scare you away from this. Very pretty - coded for silks or DMC floss.
  • Klara Hansen - What a pretty piece! Choose a fabric, then a thread - this is DMC #502. Can you see how the sampler is divided and stitched? The bottom half is the drum, and the top half is a pincushion. Now, look at My home in the Garden again and see how you can divide that up - using the different finishing techniques!

Mill Hill's 2021 Annual Charmed Santas (The 23rd Annual Set!) and Charmed Ornaments
More fun beaded and stitched ornaments for your tree this year... we've noticed that Mill Hill isn't using a lot of beads this year... we think COVID and supply are the issue! So... GET OUT your stash of old finished kits - seems nobody can toss those little leftover bags of extra beads - and rescue these with more beads!
  • Christmas Day Santas - This year we get Santa all throughout Christmas Day! "Morning, Giving, and Memories" - He's having morning breakfast in his jammies - wearing his bunny slippers! Coffee and Candy Cane in hand too! He's ready for gift giving in his knitted sweater, and finally serving turkey dinner and the end of the day. (The dog looks a little more excited about THIS meal than he was about breakfast!) Presented as complete kits of 14ct perforated paper with all the necessary beads and flosses, each Santa finishes about 3-1/2 to 4 inches tall. These little guys are the 23rd year... so now there are 69 Santas from all different countries doing all sorts of sports and hobbies all through the year!
  • 2021 Snow Fun Charmed Ornaments - This year's set of 6 snowmen are Wishing, Trimming, Skating, Tumbling, Cooking and Giving... all stitched in floss and beads on 14ct perforated paper. Each is garnished with a Mill Hill charm or treasure... and would probably welcome a few more beads from that old stash of yours! They finish about 3 inches in size, just cute and fun!

God Bless America, Bristol Berries II, Mermaid Crossing and Summertime Berries from Erica Michaels
Linda Stolz has 4 new releases...
  • God Bless America features the words from the song. You can stitch it in the reds and blues on the front cover, or do it monochromatically - there is a pic of that on the pattern back. Inspired by woven coverlets, one of the stitched versions also has antique button garnishes added. The main design measures 98 x 177 - so about 5-1/2 x 1- on 18/36ct. Presented as a chart.
  • Bristol Berries II - A second set of berry-shaped pin cushions stitched on anything you want, using one shade of any hand-dyed red (or another color you like better!) thread you like best! All the bands and motifs are taken from or inspired by the antique Bristol Orphanage Samplers. The chart includes all three cushion designs.
  • Mermaid Crossing - 'Be a mermaid in a sea of fish!' There are three pieces inside this chart pack. The back cover shows the long needle or sewing roll case finishing - the main piece measures 2-1/2 x 16. Then, there is the Crossing piece - a box top or pin cushion, and finally a berry-shaped cushion featuring a big mermaid tail design.
  • Summertime Berries - These three berry cushions all feature either something fun summertime pastimes. One has a camper, another has flip-flops and a little tropical drink. Not real involved, so they are finish-able, and they'd make fun additions to a bowl of summer pin cushions! Linda has great finishing ideas on her website for these berries - you can add all sorts of charms and buttons to them, a little trimming goes a long way with these!

Capodimonte Porcelain Pins - click for more Capodimonte Porcelain Pins
Found while cleaning our front cases! We have some GORGEOUS hand-made porcelain-topped pins by Capodimonte, that need to adorn just the right pin cushion! Completely handmade in Italy, the certificate that comes with them explains that they are 'produced in the laboratory of Porcellane Carusio and entirely made and hand painted by master craftsmen using traditional processing of Capodimonte porcelain and provisions of the Law 188/90 (Ceramics Artistic and Traditional) with colors called 'third fire' that by cooking to 780 Celsius ensures lasting stability.'

That's all a little hard to read, but just know that these elegant pins feature beautiful hand-made porcelain flower tops, each is unique and prettier than the last! Sets of 3 pins, they are all slightly different and one of a kind.

Patriotic Barn Trio from Waxing Moon
Patriotic Barn Trio
from Waxing Moon Designs
Waxing Moon has another trio collection of smaller designs - this time we have barns for the summer. Finishing about 4 x 5 on 30ct... they're pretty cute when you stitch them all and finish into a 3 or 4 sided triangle or cube stand-up. Takes less display space, and you still get to enjoy all of them at the same time.

Because of the saw tooth edging, they look like postage stamps... and would be perfect to work up on 14ct perforated paper... but even better - the NEW 18ct Paper!
Sea Time from Fairy Wool in the Wood - click to see more
Sea Time
from Fairy Wool in the Wood
Here is a fun design that is made up of 8 smaller insets. Stitched on 36ct Country Vintage Mocha Linen (any count will do) it finishes 8 x 12.

Coded for DMC, this is a perfect design to break up and finish into individual pin cushions for a fun basket or tray display. Super charming that way... you get glimpses of a seafaring family and life at the beach!

Hedge Row from Plum Street Samplers Flirting from Plum Street Samplers The Equality Sampler from Plum Street Samplers Flag Flock & Sheep Keep from Plum Street Samplers Flag Flock & Sheep Keep from Plum Street Samplers
New Arrivals from Plum Street Samplers.
Paulette has been busy creating... so here are her latest new treats!
  • Hedge Row - Another fun stack of cute little animals, these darling hedgehogs companion all 12 of Paulette's other 'stacks.' (racoons, kangaroos, deer, sloths, fox, llama, turkeys, cows, hens, hogs, goats and sheep.) Big Foot and The Abominable Snowman technically don't count... but they coordinate too! Just as cute as can be, they are all nestled on daisy stems sniffing the pretty flowers! They measure 60 x 90 in stitch count.
  • Flirting - Paulette says this is a follow-up to 'Falling' - the same Pilgrim couple - still ooshing and gooshing at each other, but on deer this time instead of sensible horses! I love the trees on there... you could leave the love birds at home, and just do the trees!
  • The Equality Sampler - This is lovely! So many pretty design elements in this one, *We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men and women are created equal...* The year 2020 marked the 100th anniversary of women's right to vote. Dedicated to the suffrage movement, Paulette added the names of the three women who were the original champions - who ignited the cause. 180 x 185, Stitched with hand-dyeds, the borders are flowing and pretty, the houses are neat, the flag is big and bold, it'll make a nice statement on your wall!
  • Always Remember - This design is dedicated to those who've lost their lives in service to our great country. All the pretty poppies, can you see the quilt block detail as the 'bricks' on the house? Measures 139 x 114.
  • Flag Flock & Sheep Keep - Paulette says these three are looking mighty proud in their own private patriots parade. On their backs are symbols of prosperity and happiness, an olive branch for peace and a hospitality pineapple. To keep them in their ranks, you can opt to stitch the little 'Sheep Keep' with its Border collie and her keeper-in-training! Lots of pretty color, too!

The 2021 Winter Holiday Kits from Mill Hill - click for more
Christmas is Coming - According to Mill Hill! Our 2021 Annual Christmas Kits are here!
The Winter Series of the larger 5 x 5 designs offers a stuffed cookie jar - full of yummy baked treats; a bear with a exploding head (The Holidays can do that to you sometimes!); Santa totally wiped out on his couch on Christmas Night - I love the Big Dipper in the sky! Next is a winter bike scene - it's a challenge to ride a bike in the ice and snow... but it's does present a pretty picture! Christmas Break features a fun window scene, and Cafe Grande is the latest in their charming Christmas Village set of houses, businesses, and churches. We carry that entire line of Village kits... I think there are 2 dozen in the Christmas series, and a dozen each in the Spring and Fall Villages - and we have 'em all! These kits all include the chart, needles, DMC flosses, Mill Hill beads and a MH button, and they are all worked on 14ct perforated paper. Use the paper for our little sled ornaments if you want, and do these on 14 or 28ct fabric as an option.

The Smaller Winter Holiday Collection continues Mill Hill's hundreds and hundreds of 3 x 3 ornament designs. The kits come with a magnet backing so you can stick them on a filing cabinet or the fridge... but most cut these out around the edges and use them as Christmas tree Ornaments. Cute as can be, this year we have a rocking reindeer, a pretty snail-mail Christmas Card, a swirly tree, a puppy mailing his letter to Santa, a puppy paw - you might want to attach your doggie's pic to the back of this one... make it a momento, and a perky little fox. Each of these comes with the chart, paper, beads, a glass Treasure embellishment, the magnet backer, and DMC floss. Lots of fun to keep you stitching!

Stitching Summer from Twin Peak Primitives - click to see more
Stitching Summer
from Twin Peak Primitives
Smell the Sea and feel the Sky - just don't get sand in your stitching bag! This is kind of a fun piece by Twin Peak Primitives... I see three bands of design in here... so lots of possibilities. The top row features spools of thread with those shorebirds, bitty cabanas and the fishermen on them. Notice the clothesline there with the scissors and needles on it? (and the bitty swimsuit!) The crabs are super cute, and the row of whales down below just makes it a busy sea-scene.

Presented as a leaflet, the stitch count is 170 x 119 - so 10-1/2 x 7-/12 on 16/32ct, and it calls for regular DMC floss. Easy to add some hand-dyeds , you could do the crabs in metallic, or the tiny swimming fish... or add buttons here and there if your stash 'overfloweth!'

Packs of 6 cards each... fun and unique... from Sajou of Paris, France.

Hands On Design Lick The Bowl The Kitchen Counter
from Hands On Designs
A new trio of smaller designs for the kitchen is coming from Hands On Design.  Presenting in three single and separate charts, the first is titled *Lick The Bowl.*   Cathy's promo says *Life is what happens at the kitchen counter... cooking, eating, visiting over coffee, and a bit of retro wisdom!*

Stitch Tray Set from Jeannette Douglas Stitch Spool from Jeannette Douglas Home Together #3  With You I'm Home from Jeannette Douglas Home Together #4  Bless Our Home from Jeannette Douglas
New Designs Have Arrived from Jeannette Douglas
4 Small stitching projects, and we love them all!
  • Stitch Tray Set - What a fun 6 x 6-ish inch fabric tray - you stitch this flat and then pinch the corners together to raise the sides and create a tiny tool tray. Jeannette's pretty stitches cover the inside - all sorts of fancy things in there - it's charming! There is a matching scissor fob and can you see the drum-shaped cushion above the tray in the pic? That is a wrap-around design. Everything is trimmed with Lady Dot trims and velvets... which we will have at some point after the patterns arrive. Chart is offered separately from the silk thread pack, and the trims. There is also a neat pin set for this from Puntini.
  • Stitch Spool - This is a charming piece that can be finished as a little sewing case, stuffed pin cushion, or even wrapped around a wooden spool as shown in the leaflet's cover photo. It coordinates with the tray set, but is stitched with hand cottons floss rather than the silks. Threads, the gorgeous buttons and the red ribbon is included with the chart. (TBR) We have some spools - don't know for how long - those are offered separately.
  • Home Together #3 and #4 - This is a fun set of 3 x 3 designs that Jeannette suggests can be finished in many different ways. Pin cushion them - all individually, or finish them into a cube - or make them in a long row... a tall and skinny banner? Each part is offered by itself in a small chart format... quick and cute!

Several New Cross Stitch Arrivals from Teresa Kogut
Ms Teresa has been busy charting up a storm for us... of note are Wilbur and Tilly (previously released in Punch Needle) in CROSS STITCH! Her newest Punch Needle designs - Sweet Land and Folk Quilt Stars - are featured farther down.
  • Silhowitches Quaker - Kind of a fun design, this is stitched with just Swamp Water (3371) and touches of Guacamole (733) Weeks hand dyed flosses. It's full of cute little motifs hiding everywhere. You could separate a bunch of them out of here and make bitty ornaments and fobs if you wanted.
  • For the Love of Nature - This one features a cute squirrel, racoon and little fox. The trees are all patterned (they remind us of bits of wool) and the border is full of happy hearts. The chimneys are even billowing love hearts! Stitch count is 198 square - so it'll finish an impressive 13 inches on 32ct! Coded for hand-dyeds or DMC, you'll need quite a few multiple skeins of some colors.
  • Wilbur & Tilly - Well, aren't these two just the cutest? They both measure 111 in stitch count, so finish under 7 x 7 on 32ct. Charted for hand-dyed flosses.
  • Prim Hen in Basket - Here's one I found in the shop, but it missed the website! Hen has been in punch needle - but now charted as well. She's stitched on gunmetal or a blackboard color - all that brown border area is your stitching - not the fabric! It kind of teases your eye!
  • Outstretched Arms - We LOVE Teresa's signature angels - but this one is NUTS! Stitched on Cornsilk linen, it measures 170 square. The background is STITCHED with #310 but can you see the teal highlights on there to make it look distressed? They are stitched too! It distresses ME to look at the chart. Some of you guys can really do a nice job with a chart like this... this one is for YOU! It's simply gorgeous! But wow!

from Cuore e Batticuore
This is such a cute little piece.... it needs to hang in your *Crafting Place of Honor!* There is a tiny hoop, cute pin cushions, a bitty sewing machine, scissors and skeins of yarn... If you're not into doing the whole piece, just pick out motifs and make little pin cushions out of them.

The entire stitch count is pretty big - 287 x 182 (18 x 11!) - so those smaller projects sound kind of good! Presented in a chart by Cuore e Batticuore, it calls for DMC flosses.
A Liberty Oh The Deep Deep Love of Jesus from Heartstring Samplery
New Patrioics from Heartstring Samplery - Due Any Day!
  • A Plant of Rapid Growth - This sampler features the quote by George Washington of Liberty being the 'plant of rapid growth'), a vining floral bower over a white house, bald eagle motifs, an Americana shield and a pretty floral border. Measuring 211 x 157, it finishes approx 13 x 10 on 32ct Picture This Plus Heartland Linen and is worked with varied hand-dyed flosses. I love all that busy-ness in the background!
  • Liberty Pin Drum and Justice Needle Berry - this is a matching set of cushions both stitched on Heartland linen as well. Hand-dyed flosses from Gentle Art, Weeks and Classic, they make a charming set!
  • Oh The Deep Deep Love of Jesus is the 5th installment of Beth's series of Sunday Church Hymns. On the plainer side of some of her designs, they seem to fit the music rooms at church don't they? We have an auto-ship on this series if they are something that you want to collect... stitching is always optional. ;)

Dreaming Girl from Barbara-Ana Designs - click to see more Dreaming Girl
from Barbara Ana
This is a wistfully pretty piece - obviously our girl has a head full of dreams - just like the title of the piece announces! Stitched on a deep blue fabric (or choose anything you like), it is all worked with DMC floss, and finishes approx 8-1/2 x 4-/12 on 32ct. (The Stitching with the Housewives girls dye a lot of this color - they use a RIT dye from the grocery store!!!)

Anyway, this design is fun... stitch it for the happy Dreamer in your life! I love everything about it!

Acts of Kindness Pinkeep
from Scattered Seed Samplers

(She says it is delightfully fun to find little trinkets and decorations to include with the cushions because it really makes your stitching POP!)

All garden-y in theme, Lady Liberty has sunflowers as tall as she is, Sam is fashioned to look like a garden Whirli-gig, and his hat is even a planter. A bunting-draped watering can is home to a another sunflower, and the Mom and Dad eagles are perched and waiting for a festive party! Lots of the same colors of flosses are called for in both patterns, so no need to buy more thread. (Onyx, Pea Coat, Red Rocks, Grits, Oscar, Pamlico, Blue Suede, Grecian Gold, 611, 712, 3771 and 3778.

Brenda Gervais is previewing another little chart design - a miniature stitched birthday cake to America - featuring a very festive eagle! (But... you could finish this as a small pin cushion as well.) Measuring just 3-1/2 inches round on 36ct linen, it is stitched with bits of DMC floss and hand-dyeds of Grits, Palomino, Loden, Pea Coat, Red Rocks, Blue Suede and Grecian Gold.

Brenda is supplying her alphabet-printed linen you see on the drum sides in the chart. The featured trim is by Lady Dot - Vintage Mini Pom, which is available separately. The chart gives sources for the 2 x 4 cardboard 'cake box' form, and the candle-stick wooden 'cake plate' base. Brenda says her finishing instructions will give you a 'prefectly-shaped cake with no wonky bumps or lumps... super easy, and no sewing machine required!'

We have three colors of cotton/linen denim Jean Jackets, and some super-fun green and soft lavender stripe pieces. I didn't get a lot, just enough to freshen and excite! A few pictures here, all the details, colors, sizes, etc are on our FLAX page. Go take a peek if it interests you!

I do have to share... when I opened The Silver Needle 37 years ago - in 1984 - I carried little Aida cloth blanks to stitch and cover wooden rolling pins! We sold a TON of them. So here I am, 37 years later, still at it I guess! This chart is a little expensive though... be aware of that, but otherwise... what a fun gift for a baker!

These Scissor, Thread and Needle Keepers feature vintage artwork from ads by DMC and Sajou. Dressed up a little with a mini-stork scissor charm, each metal square measures 1-inch in size. Pretty little do-dads to have! We'll send a combo of the two or make them match - if you have a preference for one of the other, please let us know in the order form's comments box.
  • The Needle Keepers are the plain ones - no decoration at the top - they feature a separate rare earth magnet on the backside, so they will act as a needle minder, and can be placed on fabric. The ring at the top can be used for a pretty ribbon so you can attach this inside a sewing case if you'd like.
  • The Scissor Keeps are the ones with the curved clam-shell clip on them. You can attach them to the end of a zipper on your needlework pouches, you can attach them to scissors... just about anywhere you can clip that clasp!
  • The Thread Keepers are the ones with the open and closing key ring on them. Open the ring to thread on skeins or cards of threads you are using... or again, attach them inside a sewing case, or where-ever!

Boardwalk Revue, Bunny Rabbit, Bee Bungalow, Acorns Among Us, and Love You This Much
from Fern Ridge Collections
The Fern Ridge ladies - Pat and Peggy - have been busy during the lock-down BEADING their fingers off! We have 5 new Peyote Beaded Fobs to prove it and 4 matching stitched needle cases! The fobs are always the showy-glitzy half of the sets, so I am cheating here and showing you the glamour and sparkle. Our models will be finished in a few weeks - at which point I'll have much more fun pics to show you, but for now... here we go!

Each of the fobs comes as its own complete kit. I have taken P & P's classes at market, and can tell you that (once you get past the first three rows of the Peyote!).... it is super-fun and the neatest thing to do. (You cannot do these in the car!) You hold this in your hand to create...and you work from the straight bottom edge up to the pointed top.

P & P present these as either a color chart to follow (I like that) or a page of horrible run-on numbers that knitters love - and know how to follow! It's just so funny to see how different minds follow instructions! So, you finish the (approx 1-1/2 inches) of flat beading, attach the top decorations and scissor clip. Then, you get to string all the flashy and cool beads all along the bottom to make that one or two-inch fringe. They give you the actual bead pictures in the instructions, so you know what (pre-labeled) beads go where. The most challenging part of the fringe is keeping the finished strands out of the way of the one you're stringing! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the finished products... I'm just so impressed with myself for making them!
  • Boardwalk Revue - Gorgeous seaside blue crystal and frosted beads, a bicycle and flip flops, and even a teeny seahorse! The only one this time around without a matching needle case.
  • Bunny Rabbit - Lip-puckering lime green and bright yellows and oranges - wait till you see the needlecase ingredients!
  • Bee Bungalow - A stunning gold bee bead up there by the scissors, lots of gold beads down in the fringe... the colors are all honey and browns in here.
  • Acorns Among Us - Luscious browns in this one, a few wood beads, there is a cute little acorn charm down in the fringe.
  • Love You This Much - This is full of bright red color - accented with a silver heart bead and set against a frosted gray background. The needle case has a wooden thread board that mimics the pattern on the silver heart!

Announcing AB Designs' next 2021 Stitch-along - A Year of Snowfriends!
This monthly series will begin this June. Amy will begin with the main chart and July. Then, every other month, you'll get two more charts, till it finishes next year. Charts include embellishments.

The sample is stitched on Weeks 20ct Tin Roof hand-dyed linen, but we think 18ct Natural will work well too. You can use floss - or bits of your #5 Pearls left over from stockings and other fun projects you've finished!

  • Rose Cottage Sampler Pinkeep is just awesome. Finishing only 8 x 8 on Weeks Dye Works 36ct Confederate Gray Linen, it is stitched over 2 with DMC! It's a charming little sampler - nothing fancy - just the alphabet, house and floral urns... maybe it's the blue-gray border along the bottom that finishes it.

Charted for regular DMC flosses of 355, 407, 730, 731, 829 and 3033; it is trimmed with Lady Dot's mini-ball-fringe in Vintage color.

This is the CUTEST thing! By The Elegant Thread, stitch this cute little red lobster - he's 2 x 3 - and put him inside his mesh cage - he's ready to bring home for dinner! (Or you can hang him on your Christmas Tree, or perch him somewhere in your kitchen!)

Presented as a complete kit, you are stitching him over one thread on 22ct hand-dyed aqua blue linen. It's a pretty coarse weave, so it's not hard to see. Next, sew him together into a little pillow - the red and cream checkered backing fabric and interfacing are included. Then, roll the plastic mesh - included - into his trap, tie him inside there with the bit of included twine... and you're finished! This is SO creative and cute... I'm in the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma... I've never set lobster traps in my life, but even I know this is *a winnah!*

Now, look at the back of the house... there's the little guy on the roof again!

Antrim's Folly
by Heart's Ease Examplar Workes
This has been one of Theresa Baird's exclusive class pieces that is now available in chart format. Just a gorgeous piece, Theresa's inspiration came from a Betty Ring sampler that sold at a Sotheby's auction for over a million dollars in 2012.

She was enchanted by the mansion with the cedar trees, the barnyard with the animals, the young lady sitting straight and proud atop a horse, the farmhouse on the hill, and the flanking baskets of fruits and flowers.

It measures 257 x 355, and is worked in silks. The chart is 38 pages... it is full of stitch diagram detail, and actual close-up pics of some areas. Not for the faint of stitcher - not the quickest stitch either! Just an EXQUISITE needlework design to tantalize the brave!

2021 Collector's Heart from Heart in Hand
Heart in Hand has released this year's Collector heart kit - and it's real cute!

The complete kit contains 32ct Faun hand-dyed linen from Picture This Plus, along with a smaller cut of 32ct Vintage Country Mocha for the bonus design included. The included hand-dyed flosses by Classic Colorworks will do both designs - there are 11 different shades on these. Look for the Good!

Cecelia is retiring all the rest of her previous Collector Heart kits. She's designed them for years, but fabrics come and go, and continually kitting over the years gets complicated! So.... 2003, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 are in VERY LIMITED supply right now. We're OK with 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 for the time being. Any year not listed here is already sold out and retired. Clicking the link above will take you to a grouping of all of the Collector's Hearts.

Let Freedom Ring from Lila's Studio
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!
