Stitching With The Housewives Calendar Crates October - click to see more Stitching With The Housewives Hello My Pretties - click to see more Stitching With The Housewives This is Halloween - Back up the Truck! - click to see more
October and Halloween are Coming - Housewives-Style!
Priscilla and Chelsea have traded their busy chickens and rabbits for cats and pumpkins as the seasons are changing. Due this week...
  • October Calendar Crates - This one has several smaller things you can pull out of here to stitch individually. Check out the kitty riding the broom in front of the moon, the Black Cat Broom Co sign, and just those tiny flying ghosts!
  • Hello My Pretties - I think our witch is stuck in a jar. I do like that jack-o-lantern pail with the kitty peeking out!
  • This is Halloween - Back up the Truck! - More cute ghosts in here, and a pair of fun little witches. Make some fun tiny block stand-ups out of those - I think they'll finish about 1-1/2 inches in size! It's not so daunting to stitch on dark fabric, if your project is little!

Presenting Jim Shore's 2021 Annual Santas and Snowmen!
Always super fun to stitch... Mill Hill is bringing us this year's 6 cute Santa and Snowmen by artist Jim Shore. Finishing about 3 x 4, each is stitched on 14ct perforated paper with lots of flosses and just a few glass beads. Cute faces, pretty colors and shading on the snowmen, they really look nice on your Christmas tree!

With Love and Miss B's Apiary
from Lila's Studio
Lila's Studio has two new releases to tempt your stitching fingers!
  • Miss B's Apiary features a beekeeper in her garden. Pretty floral border surrounding everything, her bees look peaceful, under control and quiet! Measures 8 x 9 on 40ct.
  • With Love - Let all that you do be done with love. The rose motif in this was taken from an 1853 antique sampler... I just love that. Finishes approx 4 x 6 on 40ct, this is coded for DMC.
Halloween Alphabet A-B from Romy's Creations - click for more Halloween Alphabet A-B from Romy's Creations
I believe this is the start of what promises to be a really cute set of halloween-themed pin cushion letters. No release details yet for more, but I imagine like a good potato chip nobody can design just A and B without devouring the rest of the alphabet! Presented in a chart, I like them because they are cohesive - same border, same letter font, and that fun little bit of nighttime sky with the stars and the moon.

So, here are A & B... lets keep our fingers crossed for more, but at least enjoy these two! Charted for Romy's own hand-dyed flosses (which we don't carry :( I think you can choose lovely threads from your stash and do a great job with these darling designs! Each measures 60 x 60 stitches.

Estate con gli Angeli from Cuore e Batticuore - click for more Estate con gli Angeli (Beach Angels)

Fright Night from Val's Stuff
Fright Night from Val's Stuff
Val's Stuff has a new ornament/magnet design... a scary little purple bat flying through the night sky RIGHT TO YOU!

Like the rest of her cute designs, this is done of 14ct perforated paper with bits of floss from your stash. She's provided the stitching paper and the backing felts, along with the two bitty green eye buttons. Cute and Quick!

Hometown Holiday #22 Grocery Store from Little House Needleworks - click to see more The Grocery Store! from Little House Needleworks
This is building #22 in her Hometown Holiday Series! We didn't know we were going to get another design - Diane hasn't added to this set for quite some time - so this is a fun surprise! Offered in small chart format, you can stitch all of these as individual stand-up blocks and have a tiny village, or join some of them together for a long, skinny row of bustling businesses.

Same pretty color palette of classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses as the rest, it finishes approx 3 x 5. (We used to have an auto-ship for this series.. but had ended it when we thought charts were finished. So... if you collect this series, let us know and we'll get one right to you!) If you are new to this series, you're in for a treat browsing the other 21 you can pick and choose from! You'll have to scroll partway down her page to see these.

A Sweet Friendship - Refreshes the Soul from The Cricket Collection - click to see more Forever from The Cricket Collection - click to see more New Releases from The Cricket Collection
  • Forever - Vicki continues her 'words' with a wedding or a birth sampler for a little girl! She's done all the months, all the seasons, lots of Christmas words (like Cookies and Jingle) and Beach themes... now a wedding/birth! (I think there's too much frill and fluff in there for a groom - so I see 'little girl instead!' The secondary design in the booklet is actually really neat too - it's that floral heart stitched up there in the teaser-window of the leaflet! Take a look at that!

  • A Sweet Friendship - Refreshes the Soul - A trio of elegant ladies... lace petticoats and angel wings... and even halos! Up there in the little window is the MOST CHARMING little Provencal Carrot! You almost miss it - it's the back cover design! It's 2-1/2 inches wide by 8 inches tall. Clouds for the greens... a tiny villa on the hilltop... and then the most delightful floral carrot below! Quite the surprise bonus design in this!
#7 Sweet Summertime from Cottage Garden Samplings - click to see more

Sweet Summertime
from Cottage Garden Samplings
Don't you love this rooster on top of his glorious watermelon? This is actually design #7 of a 12-part on-going series of seasonals. I'm not sure you'd want to display the 12 together, because each is so different, but so far, they are all REALLY cool!

I think this rooster is in full command of his situation, and he's pretty proud of it! Finishing 6 x 8 on 32ct... you probably recognize some of the others in the set that have been released so far!

July, August & September - Rabbit-Style from Ink Circles - click to see more July, August & September - Rabbit-Style! from Ink Circles
Ink Circles continues her 12-part set of 3-inch pin cushion designs - all featuring rabbits! Each design is presented separately in its own chart (so you can collect all 12 or just choose the ones you like best) with a nice, clear picture of the finished product. They remind you of a kaliedoscope, because each rabbit is rotated and repeated - I am sure there is some geometric term for that - it really changes the look of each individual bunny and his flowers.

A super cute and colorful set of smalls, these are #7, 8 and 9... with the final three charts releasing in a few months. Our Lady Dot Creates finishing packs for these are not available yet, but such a time saver for finishing, they're worth waiting for while you're getting your stitching done!

Moonlight Sampler from The Blue Flower and Lindy Stitches -  click for more Moonlight Sampler from The Blue Flower - click for more Harvest Magic from The Blue Flower - click for more
New Releases from The Blue Flower
We were treated to two new designs at our recent Summer Stitching Retreat -- Jeannine was one of our guest designers -- and these two new things came along with her -- in addition to our exclusive class projects!
  • Moonlight Sampler - Kind a tribute to the beautiful night-time moon and all the little critters that scurry at night! *Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light. I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.* Stuffed full of darling little animals and colorful flowers, the border of this should remind you of a wrought iron garden gate or arbor decoration. We think it'd even make a really cute baby announcement - by taking out the verse and adding baby's name and important info instead!
    Measuring 269 x 254, it finishes approx 14 inches square on 36ct, and is stitched with DMC and hand-dyed flosses. Jeannine has also shown the alphabet, with all its fun little animals, stitched by itself and finished into a pillow. Every time I look at this I see another animal - sloth, hedgehog, bat, fox, moth, beaver, possum, cats, owl, a skunk, rabbit, duck - I think that's why I like this as a good-night-story piece!
  • Harvest Magic - Oh the bounty of an Autumn Garden! Celebrating the magic of a gardener's green thumb... she's brewed up a cauldron of yummy veges and pumpkin vines... while her crow-friends hover over her State-Fair-Ready preserves! This just makes me want cooler weather - but it's supposed to be 105 here all next week! :( Something to stitch for this Fall... Harvest Magic will finish approx 5 x 7 on 32ct, and is stitched with DMC and Weeks hand-dyed flosses. It'd make a cute little block stand-up for your windowsil!

Remembrance in cross stitch from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Cotswold Fields in cross stitch from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more New Releases from Teresa Kogut
We were treated to EARLY RELEASE of two of Teresa's next patterns while she was here last week presenting at our Summer Event! I don't think the rest of the industry gets these for a couple of weeks, so we're thrilled to be able to present them now! Both are presented in booklet format with wire-spiral edging so you can open the charts flat to stitch from them.
  • Cotswold Fields - *The birds of the air God takes care, Our world with abundance it yields, He delights in the creatures of the land and sea, but mostly the sheep of the Cotswold fields.* Measuring 324 x 256, this finishes a generous 16 x 13 on 40ct linen (so slightly larger on 32 or 36.) Worked with DMC and a few hand-dyeds, this is stuffed with charming animals and flowers everywhere. Teresa talks about her inspiration for this piece, so it makes all the design elements 'belong!' Colors are awesome, the shape, the flow, it was lovely to have the model in person for just these few days... definitely something you'll want to stitch!
  • Remembrance - Teresa's first reproduction piece! She found a cute little piece... I don't think the original was stamped, but it kind of reminds me of those old ones... that finishes 8-1/2 x 9-1/2 on 40ct linen. Coded for DMC and Classic Colorworks hand-dyeds it features a sweet verse: Remembrance is the sweetest flower of all the world's perfuming. Memory guards it sun or shower, Love keeps it blooming.

When I Think of September from PuntiniPuntini
Paola continues her cute set of months dressed with one of her cute hand-made clay buttons. September has arrived... and as my employees will tell you. Back to School was never a favorite time of mine, so gosh drinking the wine there in the pic looks pretty good to me!

The designs have been fun so far, all are pictured on our Puntini page so you can check them out. Paola is a one-woman-show for her darling clay buttons and pins. A trip down her page of embellishments is AS GOOD as the wine, and in my opinion, BETTER than going back to school!


Counting is Hard and Midsummer Song from Luminous Fiber Arts
Two new designs by Misty Pursel of Luminous Fiber Arts Midsummer Counting
  • Counting is Hard! Counting should NOT be hard, but honestly, have you ever mis-counted and ripped something out MORE than once? It IS hard! Measuring 68 x 124, Misty has also shown this finished as a drum pin cushion, topped with a velveteen strawberry on the leaflet's back cover. Cute design, coded for DMC... something fun to make for a stitcher friend!
  • Midsummer Song - The cuckoo comes in April and stays the month of May... he's singing a delightful song in the pretty garden! The strawberry vine is cool, the trees are neat, this is just a very cheerful and colorful design! Measures 168 x 236, coded for DMC; Vintage Country Mocha is one of the fabric suggestions.
Long May She Wave Kit from Chessie & Me Stitching Sisters from Chessie & Me Hannah Comperf 1818 from Chessie & Me
Two New Charts and a Kit from Chessie & Me
  • Long May She Wave Kit - Linda Lautenschlager's new Annual Summer 2021 Patriotic kit is here! Always a favorite, this year's is worked on 35ct Weeks Dye works Tin Roof linen with 5 luscious shades of Gloriana hand-dyed silk. Just a petite thing, the finished cushion measures 2-1/2 x 3-/12. The flag's stars are Smyrna Crosses, and the crows are over one thread... this little thing will stitch in a jiff!
  • Stitching Sisters is worked on 36ct linen with Weeks hand-dyed flosses. It finishes a petite 5 x 7. From My Humble Hand to Yours... More Than Friends, We're Stitching Sisters
  • Hannah Comperf 1818 finishes approx 10 x 11 on 36ct. Coded for Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses, the large central alphabet is done in Algerian Eyes. This one is fun... see how it kind of divided in the middle? You could stitch only half... or make it super long and skinny!

Halloween Square Dance Part Two from Heart in Hand - click for more Merry Making Mini: Flower Fun from Heart in Hand - click for more
New Heart in Hand Arrivals
  • Halloween Square Dance Part Two - The next in Cecelia's fun set of 3 x 3 designs, like the Christmas and Monthly Dances, you can arrange your 12 blocks any way you want... individual stand-up blocks, 3 or 4-sided wedges or cubes... something long and skinny... whatever. I just love those trick-or-treaters - a vampire, robot, monster, buzzard and of course Frank! You can see part one on our auto-page, and decide if you want to collect the rest coming... they'll all be cute... just like the other two sets.
  • Merry Making Mini: Flower Fun - This is just a very small, fast late-summer feeling design. Brilliant yellows, rusts and then a soft brown, this is presented in a small card chart format. Cecelia suggests that this line of designs is good for beginner stitchers.

  • Christmas Rules from Primrose Cottage Stitches - click for more
    Christmas Rules
    from Primrose Cottage Stitches
    This is rather tall and skinny design stitched with just a few DMC and hand-dyed flosses, on a light gray background. With a stitch count of 59 x 300, you have lots of chances to jazz this up a bit with some beads and metallics, some specialty frizzy threads, and then add a few buttons if you like.

    Designed by Lindsey Weight, it is reminiscent of Lizzie Kate's Rules, who knew that there would be EVEN MORE RULES to follow... but here they are! Presented in a leaflet.

    If Pumpkins Could Fly from Hands On Design - click to see more Arriving Mid-July! New Treats from Hands On Design!
    We're finished with July 4th, so it's ON TO HALLOWEEN! Cathy Haberman has introduced several new designs:
    Signs of the Season from Hands On Designs
    This is a new 3-chart set of designs. Trick or Treat, Toil & Trouble, and Hocus Pocus are all in the first chart. You can see from the pic that Cathy is giving us TWO DIFFERENT colorway options for stitching these. You can use the ever-popular dark chalkboard gunmetal fabric, or lighten it up a little with Weeks Dye Works Confederate Gray material instead.

    Stitched with Weeks Dye Works flosses, we have two different color assortment options, depending on which way you go. Designs are 63 x 55 in stitch count, so 3 x 4-ish on 32 ct. If you are frugal with your fabric, you can get all nine on a fat quarter of material... but if that worries you, just get a half (but it's twice the $$!) The final 2 charts - with the other 6 designs in the set - will release at the end of August, so there is plenty of stitching time before Halloween. We'll do an auto-ship for the last charts... get fabrics and threads now, or wait a little!

    Hands On Design Measure Up Hands On Design Kitchen Counter It Came With the House
    It Came With The House from Hands On Designs
    The second design in Cathy's Kitchen Counter mini-series... it's the next cute thing you can stitch for your kitchen... instead of cooking! Offered as a single chart, you are collecting the Measure Up design shown here, too!

    Each of the three KC charts has a part of this design in them - as a little bonus. All cute, all fun, all easy to stitch!

    If Pumpkins Could Fly from Hands On Designs

    If Pumpkins Could fly... Up in the sky, I'd ride with you and shout out BOO!
    Isn't that the cutest verse?

    I love everything about this... the main piece measures 115 x 74 - around 5 x 7, and the little ornament is about 3 x 4. Stitched on 32ct Platinum Belfast linen - it's a good neutral background color... and notice the fun rik-rak and fabric trim in the framed piece? By Lady Dot Creates, the trim color is Jack. Offered in a single chart.

    Mom's Kitchen... Our July 2021 Secret Needle Night Kit
    This has now sold out. Thanks! Click through to see more about our monthly Secret Needle Night kits!
    Our Secret Needle Night design for July is retro and just plain fun! I chose a color palette of aqua, a dusty blue, buttermilk yellow and that orange-y red that all seem to 'say the year 1950!' It's funny now though, because the 'cool' mixers look like this again, and plug-in coffee pots are 'correct' again too!

    Lots of #5 Pearl cotton on 18ct linen, a breeze to stitch with, you'll finish this in a jiff! Complete kit comes with chart, linen, threads and needle.

      The stitch count is 140 x 154.

    Milk Jam
    from Lilipoints
    I had never heard of Milk Jam, but this is the recipe! It turns out that milk jam is the name for a boiled-down carmelized milk-sugar mixture that is used as a food and ingredient. Milk jam is used as a spread and as an ingredient for making desserts such as pudding, flan or ice cream. It is also often used as a filling for cakes.

    191 stitches x 180 stitches, 13 x 13 on 28 count.

Complete kits contain the charts, flosses, beads, fabric and needles.
    • The Antique Keys Trilogy also celebrates the seasons - but since it's a TRILOGY, they did ONLY THREE of the seasons (not summer! I assume there will never be a summer design for this series.) Gorgeous, elaborate keys dressed with florals... they might be pretty in your entry way! Each finishes approx 3-1/2 x 5 inches on 14ct perforated paper.

Marie has added over-one details inside the windows - Santa and Mrs are in there, you can see the tree... and on the back of the house the little elf that is steering the sled is done over one as well!

    Hope from JBW Designs - click to see more
    Here are the 4 newest releases from JBW Designs
    • Candy Cane Pockets - Two little pockets to hold your candy canes! One has a Gingerbread Man, the other has Ice Skates. Stitched in reds and greens, they are only 23 x 28 stitches.
    • Sing a Song of Christmas XV - "I heard the Bells on Christmas Day." You'll recognize your Christmas Carols when you read these little 3 x 4 mini stockings. They make cute tree ornaments.

    Marquoir aux 36 Oiseaux by Reflets de Soie -- click to see more! Leonie-Marie Delorine 1905 by Reflets de Soie -- click to see more! Le Marquoir de Marie-Andree by Reflets de Soie -- click to see more!
    Marquoir aux 36 Oiseaux, Leonie-Marie Delorine 1905, and Le Marquoir de Marie-Andree from Reflets de Soie
    Reflets de Soie has three new samplers to tempt your stitching fingers! Directly from Paris, France... each is presented in leaflet format with clear charts. Coded for both silks and DMC flosses...
    • Marquoir aux 36 Oiseaux - Isabelle writes that this is a 'little sampler that is an invitation to take a walk in a garden where 36 birds sing an ode to nature.' The stitch count is 311 x 267 - so 17 x 15 on 36ct... and we do hve her silk packet available for this as well! I love the repeating lines of this, just so unique!
    • Leonie-Marie Deoorme 1905 - This one is stunning! It needs to be stitched on something a little darker (?) so that the middle alphabet shows up a little better... but OH... the border is cool! The gold lines are stitched, then the small floral surrounds that elegant topper alphabet, then the white abc's you cannot see very well, then all the pretty baskets and urns below. Very pretty, the stitch count is 328 x 324 - so 18 x 19 on 36ct. We have Isabelle's silks for this as well!
    • Le Marquoir de Marie-Andree - You really, really need to like alphabets to stitch this cool piece... I can't even count how many different fonts there are in this, (leaflet has 36 pages!) much less all the little borders, flower basket and bird motifs. Red is a traditional color for French samplers, but if you like something else - USE IT! We certainly recommend hand-dyed thread, as it gives you just that hint of shading and depth. The stitch count on this is 698 x 461... pretty big... so on 40ct over two it'll be 35 x 23! 36 Or 32 - a little bigger! There is a border of cut and drawn threadwork all round, too. We just love this!

    Caroline Suffling 1848 from Scarlett House - click for more A Changed World from Scarlett House - click for more
    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!

    Hip Hip Hooray
    from AB Designs'
    This is a fun design to celebrate every day - not just July 4th! Amy's 4 little sheep look like cheerleaders - the little blue one is waving his flag!

    Make a stand-up, or use her pillow finishing idea... she's chosen Weeks Tin Roof linen for this, and used Classic Colorworks flosses with DMC conversions. Cute and quick - I even like just the 4 sheep by themselves!

    Foxwood Crossings has a new sled design that can be framed or split and mounted on her MEDIUM-sized sleds. The little sled designs are worked on 14ct perforated paper - I see that she is mixing Weeks Dye Works Sky and Navy to achieve the look of the Picture This Plus hand-dyed Twilight linen used on the bigger piece. (a really good trick to simulate the hand-dyed fabric background!)

    Anyway, cute designs that make wonderful tree ornaments and cute holiday decorations, they take very little time to stitch and finish in a FLASH! When youi visit the Foxwood page, there are TONS of offerings on there... if you are confused as to which design fits on which size of sled or sleigh... just call us... we can make sure you get the correctly-sized parts for your pieces!

    from Jardin Prive
    I think that says 'The Colors of the Garden' doesn't it? I don't need words to convey how pretty this little piece is! Stitched on Waterlily or Star Sapphire Linen, choose your count, it'll finish approx 6 x 6.

    Coded for 11 shades of DMC, I love everything about those 20 x 20 stitched squares. Make them individually into cushions... add clay bee buttons instead of stitching the bees, use #8 Pearl Cotton for the white lacy borders to give it texture, make the sheep wooley - this is just the sweetest piece with pretty soft coloring. It's very small, delightfully so, and offered as a chart.

    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!

    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
    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!'

    Vintage Postcards from Sajou
    We have assortments of needlework-related postcards to make into thread palettes! Our sets of 6 - 4 x 5-3/4 - stiff cardboard cards are all one-of-a-kind, and feature antique needlework ads and pictures of vintage needlework tools.

    Just beautiful, punch holes on one edge and make thread cards... or just enjoy them as-is anywhere you want. Inside a sewing case is fun... they are framing-quality... you could frame a few. Include them in a needlework shadow-box display, you could always mail them to friends! They'd be pretty in travel photo collages... just don't decide they are 'too pretty to use!' Packs of 6 cards each... fun and unique... from Sajou of Paris, France.

    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!

    Red White & Bloom from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more Presenting Red White & Bloom from With Thy Needle & thread
    Brenda Gervais has released info about her next set of *seasonal smalls* - they companion Love Notes and Jelly Bean jubilee. Red White and Bloom includes a Lady Liberty, Uncle Sam, busy little bumbler bees, cheery sunflowers and even a family of eagles. All the designs are small, but Brenda promises that they'll make a big statement when you display them together in a tray or basket. (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.

    Happy Birthday America! from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more Happy Birthday America! from With Thy Needle & thread
    Brenda Gervais is previewing another little chart design - a miniature stitched birthday cake to America - featuring a very festive eagle!

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!

    Baked With Love from New York Dreamer - click to see more Baked With Love
    from New York Dreamer
    This is a stitched rolling pin cover! It has little valentine cookies on it, along with sugar and flour and it says *Baked With Love.* Stitched on 16/32ct with DMC or hand-dyeds, it's actually pretty cute, and will fit around a classic 18-inch rolling pin.

    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!

    Along with the chart, you get this cool 7 x 7 x 2-ish inch wooden tray. It features that display area for your stitched cushion, and three holes to hold your needlework implements.

    Livia is including the striped finishing fabric you see, and a bunch of cute seaside charms that are dangling there off the cushion. The two included wood tools supplied are one seam ripper and one frogger.

    Fun Needlework Accessories from Sampling of Memories
    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!

    Stacy Nash has more neat designs that have just released...
    • 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.
    • Holly Basket Sewing Roll - This one is larger at 8-1/2 x 11-1/2 on Picture This Plus's 32ct Ale Linen. 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. You can do all sorts of run finishing with this on the reverse side... cool pockets, fun buttons, needle pages, thread rings... lots of fun things that will be discovered when your roll is UN-rolled!

    Wow... I need these Ruby slippers to transport me to the seashore so I can enjoy the palm trees and flamingos!

    Lobstah Dinnah Ornament
    from The Elegant Thread
    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!*

    Creepy Pumpkin Stackers
    from Praiseworthy Stitches
    Wow. this is a creative way to finish your stitching! Pam and Susan have designed three various-sized stitched pumpkins and then shown you how to finish/assemble them for a cute stacking Halloween display. The feature is the ANTIQUE WOODEN SPOOL they are stacked around! You can choose any three colors of fabric you like for your pumpkins - they tell you how to adjust the templates if you change from the 32ct Weeks Chestnut, Tiger's Eye and Cappucino choices used.

    Stitching is done with Weeks, Gentle Art and Kreinik threads, with some Mill Hill beads and a JABCO spider button. (You can get creative from your stash with creepies to embellish this too!) Next, assemble the pumpkins - you are leaving the centers open - and then placing them over the spool to stand up! FOR NOW the antique spools are included with the charts - so neat!

    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!
