Kind & Gentle Woodland Holiday Sampler from Artful Offerings
*As the snow gently falls in a not-so-far-away place, a group of kind and gentle woodland animals gather to help each other decorate a feather tree in the forest - for A Christmas holiday celebration.* By Artful Offerings, the alphabet and tiny dots of stitches fill the sky with the falling snow, while everyone in attendance is here wearing their Christmas Jammies! Only two more ornaments to hang on the tree. Once again, Karina's artwork is full of wonderful balance. The horizontal lines in the border, deer jammies and feather tree let your eye travel across the design, while the letters and flakes softly interrupt - like little snowflakes!
Stitched on 36ct Seraphim Antique Lace hand-dyed linen, the chart calls for a mixture of Gentle Art Sampler Threads and DMC, and it finishes approx 11 x 7-1/2. A darker linen would be pretty for this - stitch the letters and flakes in a lighter color... or go for a lighter dusty winter-colored grey background... this is a pretty piece! Presented as a chart.
New Releases from Plum Street Samplers - due in the shop the first week of December!

Winter Blooms, Tudor Ermine, Cozy Christmas Cat, Holiday Card 2021 - New Designs from The Blue Flower
The Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher Christmas-Winter 2021 Issue is Here!
Always a lovely treat to page through... this year, it features 30 projects - 15 Cross Stitch and 15 Punch Needle.I always try to page through to choose just one thing to feature, and always give up - because there are so many.
Huge pictures, actual-sized cutting templates, project info right there with the pics, almost no advertising clogging up the pages, and that thick, glossy paper (that even smells good!) Just a treat to page through! This issue always runs more than the others through the year - it contains almost double the content.
Charming Winter and Christmas Scenes from Une Croix, le temps d' un The'
These are lovely designs charted for DMC floss and stitched on any neutral fabric color and count you choose! Truthfully, they are a challenge to describe to you because some literally have no title, and everything in the instructions EXCEPT the DMC numbers are in a foreign language! (We don't really NEED to read anything in the charts - the symbols and DMC colors are the same everywhere, it's just a little un-nerving!) Each design has single stitches scattered in the background to resemble snowflakes... you probably cannot see those in the pics, but it adds a pretty effect. Very understated... this designer has a couple of other VERY FAVORITE designs, so click the pic to see those too.
Fleece on Earth, Catty Cane, and Gathering Snowflakes from Luminous Fiberarts
Luminous has three new designs that we like... all three are presented as beautifully done charts with fantastic, clear pictures on their cover.
from Les Petites Croix de Lucie
This is a fun chart that offers nine different teapots. (It works out to $2 per pot!) They've translated the word to CUPS, but we know they are cute whatever you call them! Coded for DMC floss, between the nine, there are 43 shades in them, and each pot measures approx 50 to 70 in stitch count.
The whole medley measures 234 x 225. I like them all together, but I'm thinking just working up one of your favorites might save on stitching time... and just one perched on the kitchen counter might be all you need!
Announcing Little House Needleworks' Upcoming Fall on the Farm Series for 2022!
Beginning this December and running till finished in August of 2022, Diane is starting a set of nine small designs that will follow the same formatting as her Farmhouse Christmas set.

New Arrivals from Stitching With The Housewives

Rabbits, Rabbits and More Rabbits for October, November and December from Ink Circles
Ink Circles has finished her series of 12 small monthly rabbit pin cushions... our last three charts have arrived. A super-cute set, each design has a tiny rabbit in it, but then Tracy has turned her design 3 more ways to make geometric out of it. Your eye might not SEE rabbits right away... but then you notice something like carrots or something... and you figure it out.
Presented as single charts, you can choose just a few or get 'em all. Lady Dot Creates has made finishing materials supply packs for these, complete with backing Osnaburg, the hand-dyed trims to match the threads, ribbons and a charm or two. This is truly an enchanting set of little rabbits!
from Cottage Garden Samplings
Wow, this is just the BEST turkey... can you imagine eating this regal thing? (It makes me want to serve ham this year instead of turkey!) He's so plump and fat... the colors and patterns of the feathers are stunning.
A lot of stitching in this... Vinniey, the designer, has charted that gorgeous backside of the bird with two different areas of color. So your shading WILL look like it does in the pic, if you use the called-for hand-dyed colors. Just gorgeous, no verse needed; this finishes approx 5 x 5-1/2 x 7 on 36ct.
from Heartstring Samplery
Heartstrings Samplery's Sunday Stitches series continues with hymn #11 out of a set of 12. (The rest are all pictured together on our auto-ship so you can see them all) This one is more colorful than some of the others - but finishes pprox the same size - 4-ish by 9-ish on 18/36ct.
If stitching 12 is too many, peruse the selection and choose your favorite three! All are offered as charts, can be stitched on just about any fabric you like, and are coded to DMC as well as hand-dyed flosses.
The Best Day Snappers
from Bent Creek
The Bent Creek girls have created 4 small scenes for the seasons and added a sentiment: "Write it on your heart that Every Day is the best day of the year."Each of the 5 seasonal panels feature a cool subtle patterned background that adds a lot to the overall effect.
The Spring Chicken has a checkerboard, Winter Snowman features diamonds, the verse has wisps of wind, Summer has horizontal lines stitched in graduating colors to simulate a sizzling sun and Autumn has blowing leaves all around that cute owl.
Small designs, each is approx 3 x 5... so stitched together, this will be about 15 x 5. Presented in 5 individual small charts.
The Narwhal Globe Kit
from Bent Creek
Bent Creek's 21st annual snowglobe design is here... a little different from past years... but it does feature ice, water and snow! We googled Narwhals to find out that they are called the 'Unicorns of the sea.'
Presented in their complete kit format of 18ct linen with #5 Pearl Cottons, this finishes the same size as its 20 companions at 5 x 5.
November and December Samplers of the Month
from Country Cottage Needleworks

Two New Reprints
from The Prairie Schooler
Sledding Season... Our November 2021 Secret Needle Night Kit
Winter is just around the corner. We don't get to sled much in Oklahoma, but I know all of you up in the North do! I love the deep evergreens against the white snow, and I added a bunny watching our little sportsman. Stitched on 18ct Natural Linen with wools, Pearl Cotton and Fuzzy Stuff threads, this finishes approx 5 x 5. Mona finished it onto a stand-up board garnished with winter greenery, snow and that flannel-looking ribbon.
Complete kit includes our chart, threads, fabric, beads and needles. You can finish it any way you like, but if you like our treatment, Mona's finishing kit offers her painted board, trims, puffy stuffing and mounting boards. Something cute and quick to display this winter.

Owls, Spiders, Acorns and Toads, Bats, Candy and even Mr and Mrs, the set is delightful. Funky shaped pumpkins 4 to 5 inches each - no two are alike. You have to LOOK into the designs to find those bats and toads, but they are all in there and fun to find.
Coded for DMC floss, you could add some beads or metallics from your stash if you want. Some of the charts come with buttons or charms, but not all of them. Offered in small chart format, all of them are stitched on Picture this Plus's 32ct Haunted hand-dyed linen - which is a gorgeous aqua/teal/blue-gray color. THE PERFECT contrast to the bright colors, we have models in the shop and they just POP on that gorgeous fabric. (You'll be able to get 6 pumpkins out of a fat quarter...and we also have Dawn, Echo and Nocturne as awesome alternatives.)
Presenting Nutcracker Village
from Country Cottage
OK all you 'Villagers' out there that love these little sets... Nikki Leeman is beginning a new Village this November of 2021. 11 Designs - one released each month - the first design features Clara and the Prince among festive Christmas Trees. Its stitch count is 118 x 71 and is the largest center panel part - if you are going to stitch this as one scene. The other 10 designs - 59 x 71 (3 x 4-1/2) - surround the center.
Stitched on 32ct linen, the whole thing (236 x 217) will measure about 13-1/2 x 15.

from Madame Chantilly
This is a fun design - organized to spell the holiday. WHAT ABOUT stitching the stack of books and jack by themselves - even stitching all the letters by themselves, making individual cushions and stuffing a basket?
Super cute, every letter is decorated with pumpkins or ghosts, and the little kitty is just the cutest! Measuring 180 x 138, the chart is coded for DMC flosses. No fabric is suggested - which means the sky is your limit!
from Cottage Garden Samplings
Boy, this sleigh is so full, I'm not reindeer can fly with it! Santa is doing some fancy footwork to get his deliveries done... this is stitched on Picture This Plus's Alchemy hand-dyed linen. A yummy gray color... the chart is coded for regular DMC floss, and will finish about 8 x 12 on 32ct.
This might be a fun design to add some gold metallic into, or some beads, black metallics for boots, Simply Wool for fur or bear... see what you have hiding in your stash!
When Witches Go Riding
from The Tiny Modernist
You might have been seeing this design these past few months, while the pieces and parts were releasing, but we've waited until we had the whole set together to offer it. Stitched on 32ct Natural Linen, the whole thing measures 143 x 234 - so 9 x 14-1/2 on 32ct. Worked with B5200 (2), one skein each of Classic's Mossy and Rainy Day, Baking Tin (3), and 2 skeins of DMC black. We like it because it's so monochromatic, but not really!
Witches go riding, black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers 'tis near Halloween!
All 4 charts gathered together.
The 2022 Needlework Enthusiast's Book of Days
from Needlework Press has Arrived!
Here's the cover for next year's upcoming Book of Days by Needlework Press! A very useful and fun 9 x 12 softcover journal... each month of 2022 opens fully across 2 pages.

Stitch get-togethers, contact info, shopping lists, project start and ending dates... you could log stitching hours... you can do anything with it! It is generally available every October, November and December - and always sells out before the year begins!
Autumn Pin Drum from Kathy Barrick
Stitch this delightful little piece - I love that stuffed pumpkin on the top! Stitched on Weeks Dye Works 36ct Beige linen with Weeks and DMC flosses... the entire thing is only 4 x 9 when flat.
Roll it into the drum shape and top it Lady Dot's hand-dyed velveteen... and make that stuffed pumpkin out of more velveteen. Then, cover your seams with baby rik-rak and you'll be good to go.
Great colors, Kathy has three different 'views' on her cover - it looks totally different from all the angles too!
Silk Gauze Swatch Sampling Set|
This is a glorious set of *10 different sizes* of silk gauze. You get 6 x 6 cuts each of size 40, 48, 56, 60, 68, 72, 82, 90 and 120 COUNT! Absolutely amazing that some of you can actually WORK on this... the cuts are huge in the silk gauze world. We could see the 68... but, wow, those smaller weaves are a challenge!
Perfect for samplers and doll house projects, we are thrilled to be able to offer this packet! Each packet comes with three properly-sized and labeled needles for the different counts of gauze, so you'll know what sizes to stock up on for future stitching projects.

from Sew Emma
Isn't he the jolliest guy? Stitch this retro Santa on anything darker than white material - so his beard shows up - OR do him ON white and don't STITCH any of the white!
The subtle gray curves gives his whole face and beard its shape... such a fun design. Measuring 91 x 91 in stitch count - he finishes approx 6 inches square on 14ct. The chart includes information about the frame and fabrics used in the finishing.
New Curly Girl Designs
Four new designs have come our way by the artist - Curly Girl - charted into Cross Stitch by the Mill Hill people. Presented as full kits of 28ct linen, each includes DMC floss and Mill Hill glass seed beads to accent. Each finishes apprix 6-1/2 inches square and fit in the Mill Hill wooden frames available by special order.
Miniature Sampler Pin Drums from Olde Colonial Designs
Oh my gosh, these are the CUTEST little cushions! Designed by Olde Colonial's Kelly, each is stitched on one-inch wide 26ct German linen banding. The cut of band in the kit in only 6 inches long... so when rolled, your tiny drum is only that 1-inch high by approx 1-1/2 inches wide. You are stitching with one thread of floss over one thread on the band... so each design is full of tiny details. We have three different designs so far... more are in the works... but get these stitched first!
Smelling the Daisies has bunnies in their flower garden.
Waiting for Santa has tiny evergreens and reindeer on it.
Grazing in the Grass has sheep and a little cow amidst the summer flags.
Presented as kits of the chart, banding, Skirtex and interfacings, topper and bottom wool felts and boards, and warm and natural for puffy... Pam has great photos in here of her finishing process. All you need to add are the bits (and I mean BITS) of floss. Just the sweetest little things... you can see my hand in the pic to gauge their charming size!
Colorful Dessert Scissors
These look good enough to eat - but don't DO that! We have three new pair of decorated 3-1/2 embroidery scissors - with matching 'pleather' sheaths.
Choose between cupcakes, ice cream cones or jelly beans. Each scissor has the design on the entire scissor - just not the blades, and the sheaths match.
Just Nan's Newest Designs are Here!
Glow In The Dark Beads from Mill Hill|
Oh how fun... Mill Hill's classic glass seed beads in 6 different colors... due in the shop any day! Each glass bead does have its own color, but all will glow the same eerie luminescent color in the dark. I imagine they will be turning up in designs shortly, as they are a completely new product... but they'll be fun to have NOW!
New Offerings from Heartstring Samplery's Beth Twist!
Stitch People Books
Wow, this is a really neat set of 7 books that, between them all, offer you literally thousands of different motifs to customize your own stitching project. We're showing you one of them here... click through to see the rest... it's definitely worth it!

from Shepherd's Bush
Teri Richards has discovered stitching on the Mad for Plaid Project Bags! 'Stitch' is her single chart design that includes the big word, along with a tiny scissor fob and pin cushion - on linen - version. The project bags come in three colors and measure 10-1/2 x 13 x 3-1/4, with a top zipper closure. Berry, Charcoal or Olive, her 'Shepherd's Bushy colors' will work on any of the three colors of project bags available. (There are also gingham SQUARE mesh pouches in pink, aqua and gray available too! See below... we put that entry up for you, too.)
'Stitch' measures just 28 x 54. On the project bags, you are using #5 Pearl cotton - over two threads. (Hint: use up your stocking threads!) On the project bags, stitching measures approx 3 x 6-ish. Use the same design on 32ct Waterlily linen to stitch the little cushion. Teri has a tiny chart on here for the fob - it's less than an inch! What a fun new idea... check out the project bags, and see your options!
Mad for Plaid Project Bags by Sew Emma

Teri is using her 'Shepherd's Bushy Colors' of #5 Pearl cotton on these... so now we have SIX different pouch options!
These Mad for Plaid bags measure 10-1/2 x 13 x 3-1/4 in size. They are a perfect project size... you can see through them to keep track of what's in what, and they are a soft, pliable plastic.

They are all due in the shop this week, and until i can get my hands on the actual kits - I cannot tell you fabrics and colors... so will fill in that info ASAP! The stitched cases are all completely kitted - finish about 3 x 6 and then fold. The completely kitted beaded fobs (which take between 3 and 4 hours to complete) are generally an inch and half log, BEFORE all that lavish beaded fringe they love to add. The kits are stuffed full of cool stuff... and they are including pretty good inside pics for your finishing info. All fobs are $37, all cases run $36.

Presenting Home Sweet Home - A New Stitch-Along beginning November of 2021
from By the Bay Needleart
Donna Bayliss is beginning a new mega-piece - this one features 12 different *home scenes,* one chart releasing each month till next November. The small parts measure only 42 x 70 each, but together, the entire piece will measure 168 x 336. You can choose whatever fabric you wish... on 32ct, it'll all finish 10 x 21 - so not really so overpowering and 'mega' at all! Donna always has neat trees. Look at this... every month's house has different landscaping...but they all go together with her willowy-billowy trees!
Coded for DMC, the entire 'threads needed' and layout info is included in the first chart... and all charts (during the stitch-along-year) will run $7.00 each. (Next year, when they are all released and the Stitch Along is finished, they'll all go up to $9 individually.) Charts are not sold 'single-y' this first year, which means if you want to pick and choose your favorite houses... either register to get the whole set and skip some, or wait till next year to get single charts (at the higher price.) Just so pretty... we're taking Sign-Ups now to begin shipping the day ours arrive to us! Maybe wait until your first chart comes to decide fabric color and count?
Little Teacher and Stitcher Mice by Tiny Modernist
Oh my gosh, these are so cute! Mouse's Halloween Stitching came out last year, but Mouse's Schoolhouse is new. Presented in small card format, each of these is printed in a full color chart, and they finish just under 4 x 4 on 32/16ct.
Halloween uses only 7 colors of DMC or hand-dyed; Teacher uses 8. Hallo's pumpkin is really a pin cushion with scary stitched pins poking from the top! You might want to use some furry wool thread for the mice, add some metallic for those scissors and moon, and maybe find a few beads to use on the sunflower's middle. Quick and colorful, they'd be fun stuffers in between your halloween pumpkins and mini dried Indian corn ears.
After the Rainbow, Bittersweet Village, Token of Fall and Two Pumpkins Bright

Several new designs by Liz Matthews...
Mill Hill's Beaded Holiday 2021 Gingerbread Kits!
Ohhh... a new set of small ornament-sized designs is on the way to us... due in the shop any minute! A set of 6 gingerbread people and cottages along with a stocking and tree pair, these are worked on 14ct brown perforated paper with DMC floss and Mill Hill Beads.
You probably know the drill for these - cute, small, complete little kits - they look awesome on your Christmas Tree and are really fun to stitch!
Sweet and Sharp Macarons from Clover
These are the cutest little magnetic needle minders by Clover that double as cleaners as well. Raspberry or Pistachio - choose your 'flavor' (they do look good enough to eat!) Measuring 1-3/8 inches in diameter and about 1/2 an inch thick, they feature a rare-earth magnet inside somewhere to hold your needles, and feature a soft, pliable 'filling' that is made from cotton and nylon to clean your needles.
Kind of pricey at $12.00 each, we decided that the trip to France to eat a REAL Macaron would be much more expensive, so these are second best. (Please, though, DO keep these away from small children... they really ARE charming, cute, and look good enough to eat!) Something fun for your stitching stash!
Autumn Strolls and Susie Susie Samplermaker
from Lindy Stitches
Lindy Stitches has a couple of new designs that are fun...
Harry Potter, Star Wars & Frozen II Scissors!
Wow... something fun through our doors this week! Licensed by all the right people... (Disney, WBEI and LFL) we are excited to offer these fun 6-inch scissors in protective 'pleather' decorated sheaths! Each pair measures 6 inches in overall length, and their companion (plasticy-leathery) sheaths measure 5 inches. Tips are not super pointy, and I wouldn't use these to cut fabrics... but the blades are sharp and they work great on paper and threads.
We think Santa needs to bring these for ANYBODY who loves Star Wars, Harry Potter or Frozen. (They'd make great stocking stuffers). Each style's decorations are enameled on the handles, and they look really nice. We think because of the 6-inch size they'd be good for anyone in 5th or 6th grade and older - definitely not for little-little kids. I tried to shoot pics of them with both front and back sheath decorations showing... we just think they're pretty cool around here!
Colorful Soft-Handled Small Scissors
These are fun little scissors - really good for cutting metallics because they are serrated.
3-1/2 Inches, choose from Pink, Lime or Purple.

Pam and Susan have a new Haunted Halloween Party House for 2021. *Come Ghoulies, Shriek, Growl and Dance!* Joining their collection of other busy houses... this one is just as colorful as the others, but a little different in finished size. It's a whopping 28 x 14 on 32ct Picture This Plus 'Haunted' linen, and it's garnished with a collection of JABCO clay spiders, bats, pumpkins and a little caldron button.
We have several of their models in the shop, and it's fun to find smaller take-out design areas to stitch smaller versions. The dramatic fabric highlights all the cute little ghosts and kids, the trees are all scraggly, the spider webs are thin metallic... a lot of fun things happening on ALL of their Halloween and Christmas Scenes! Presented as a chart... fabrics, buttons and extensive thread list (of 49 hand-dyed skeins or 34 Skeins of DMC and the metallic) are all offered separately. (Fabric and button info TBA)

Each measures 43 x 68 - about 3 x 4 on 32ct, and they are worked with hand-dyeds flosses (charts offer two different colorways of THAT as well!)
Signs is the first chart already released, Rhyme and Pantry are the last two charts in the set - which are due in the shop the first week of September.

Blackberry Lane's Sugared Gumdrops Gingerbread House is here!
Sugared Gumdrops - Marie Driskill's charming companion to Peppermint Candy Cottage is HERE! Sugared Gumdrops is an intricate stitched house full of color, and even some over-one design details. Worked on Picture This Plus's 32ct hand-dyed Gingerbread linen - with 'just' 43 (!) different shades of DMC floss, the cottage finishes approx 4 by 4-3/4. 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! Absolutely enchanting!
The chart comes with some really cool sugared gumdrop beads for your ornament hanger, and there is a separate button packet available that includes the nine gumdrop embellishments featured. Just stunning - offered as a chart.
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 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!
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 & thread
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!'
Bakers Gonna Bake...
from New York Dreamer
In the Summer too! Another cute rolling pin design by New York Dreamer, I guess bakers live everywhere... even the waterfront!
Presented as a chart, 75 x 160... 32ct, it calls for either DMC or hand-dyed flosses. Cute!
Sea Box from Rovaris
Oh Look - Livia's Limited Edition Sea Tray!
New supply has arrived!
*Sea* is stitched in the middle of this charming 5 x 7-ish stitched medley of underwater critters and foliage. Seahorses, a crab, and a big octopus... it's a busy little underwater scene.
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.
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!
Yes, there's even MORE!
