New Halloween Ornaments from Satsuma Street
Jodi Rice has 4 new Creepy Delights coming our way. Her things are always worked on perforated paper (but you CAN use fabric instead!) with regular flosses and studded with a few beads and sparkly sequins. Super colorful, they are all very eye-catching. Put magnets on the back on them for the fridge or file cabinet... sticks for plant or candy dish pokes. Stitch and frame 'em, or make them into little stand-up cubes -- they are way too cute to leave in a drawer unstitched!

Finishing about 4 x 4 each, the complete kits come with the chart, paper, flosses and sequins and needles. We have a pretty nice collection of her Halloween designs - these are #'s 14, 15, 16 and 17! Just love all the colors!
Fright Night from Val's Stuff
Fright Night from Val's Stuff

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!

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!

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!

Cute design, coded for DMC... something fun to make for a stitcher friend!

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.

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.

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!*

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!

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!

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!

  • Little Virginie 1837 - Stitched on 36ct, this one finishes approx 10 x 10. There's a windmill in here... a peacock and that cool sailing ship... kind of a 'family established' thing!
  • Kindred Spirits of the Thread - This is a pin cushion for a stitcher! Stitched on 36ct Confederate Gray is calls for Weeks blackboard, Lichen, Caper, Cinnabar and Arrowhead. Easy to change colors though... any stitcher will love to have and use it!
  • Sophia Church - What a pretty piece! On 36ct, it finishes approx 17 x 7, and is stitched with Weeks Dirt Road, Adobe, Terrapin, Sanguine, Oil Cloth, Flat Fish, Bees Knees and a few other DMC flosses. Blackbird Designs has a sampler like this pictured on the back of their Sewing Club book... different pots of flowers, but the same layout. The two would be pretty hung together!
  • Francis 1863 - Well, isn't this the cutest little sampler bunny? Lori has a couple of other stitched and stuffed alphabet rabbits - they are ALL charming! Francis measures 80 x 80 - so on 32ct he's only 5 inches tall. He needs to sit on your shelf in a place of honor! Stitched with Weeks Cranberry Ice, Classic's Calico Kitty, and Gentle Art's Wood Trail and Cast Iron Skillet.

Craft Room My Love from Cuore e Batticuore - click for more Craft Room My Love
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.

PuntiniPuntini Pink Power - click to see more

Pink Power
from PuntiniPuntini
*Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink!* Isn't this a happy piece? It has a coconut drink with a little umbrella for that sunshine, palm fronds and a darling handmade polymer clay flamingo pin!

Osnaburg Fabric with matching Twill Tape Trim from Lady Dot
Luscious Cotton Velveteens
from Lady Dot Creates
We have 12 new sets of heavy-weight hand-dyed cotton Osnaburg fabric and matching 1/4 inch cotton tape that Lois from Lady Dot has dyed. Soft, dusty colors, nothing specifically calls for these, but they were pretty, and so I bought them! (We loved the color names, too...but grape jelly reminds us that this is a soft and dusty color palette.)

3 yards of Tape along with a 22 x 18 cut of the fabric, you can make several smalls out of each packet. Most of the tapes are head-on matches to the fabrics, a few are slightly differed in shade, but all coordinate beautifully - even across the collection.

Seasonal Samplers from Tellin Emblem
This is a set of 4 small charts - each features coordinating pots of flowers surrounded by borders and alphabets. Each measures 104 in stitch count, you can stitch them in a 4-square, or long vertical or horizontal piece... whatever.

Now, LOOK at the petty pots in the centers. You could do single pin cushions of JUST those. You could do a stand-up cube with each season on a side... and work in the borders adding the season name if you want. Pretty colors, the alphabet fonts are all different - did you notice that? There are 28 different shades of DMC across the set, along with 6 more Gentle Art Hand-dyed Sampler Threads - so quite a colorful little set of designs!

Emily's Hope from The Drawn Thread -- click to see more Emily's Hope from The Drawn Thread
Drawn Thread's newest design is here... it's full of songbirds in their tiny garden. Measuring just 2 x 8 on 32ct, it's a bitty thing full of charm.

Each letter of HOPE has its own bird tucked between some blossoms (worked with special stitches); the E even has a baby bird in its nest. Something uplifting to stitch - make a long cushion just to perch on a windowsill! Coded for Gentle Art Sampler Threads or silks.

New Arrivals from Mani Di Donna
  • Black Fantasy - A thread ring holder, sewing roll cushion and a little box, all is stitched on one cut of 30ct Weeks Onyx linen - or a nice dark gunmetal alternative. DMC (3832, 3782 and 932) or silks, the stitching is soft and flowing. Simona includes lots of pictures inside the chart for your finishing aides. She's provided template measurements (in INCHES - not metrics, for us Americans) They show you how to anchor the rings in there (we carry those rings by the way!), and how to make the velvet roll, and wrap the diamond panel around it! A charming little set - not too big, just the right size! We have the chart along with Simona's two tulip waxers, the completed beaded scissor fob in the pic - trimmed with the clay tulip - and the pair of tulip pins you see poking from the cushion!
  • The Welcome Street - Pineapples abound! This design offers lots of parts. You get the main 'street' design - the four buildings. There is a flower pin cushion pictured - blue flowers in the corners, but what you cannot see are the pineapples separating them. The chart comes with 4 golden crystal pins to embellish this little cushion - and highlight those stitched pineapples. There is a needle book, and a little bag to hold a pineapple waxer - which is included in our accessory pack. All of that, along with a beautiful beaded scissor fob trimmed with a pineapple charm! Stitched on Weeks Cocoa linen with Weeks flosses, a lot of fun things to digest in this pattern!
  • The Simple Life - The Farmhouse, barn and sheep in the yard... finishes approx 11 x 6 on Weeks 30ct Cocoa.
  • Liberty Lane Pillow - Finishing just 4 x 5 on 32ct... the words are lovely, but this will be even smaller if you leave those off - or stitch them on the backside for a little surprise to your cushion!
  • Nantucket Lights - I've never been to Nantucket, so i don't know if these three lighthouses exist or not... but they look good 'in stitching!' Just kind of for fun.... it finishes 12 x 5-1/2!

Woodland Sampler from Marjorie Massey - click for more
Woodland Sampler
from Marjorie Massey
Here's another delightful quaker-inspired sampler by Marjorie Massey. It'd be neat hanging in a mountain cabin because it features deer, evergreens, squirrels and acorns, and it has a 'coverlet feel' to it because of the reverse alphabet at the bottom.

Stitched in only one or two colors - choose a hand-dyed that you like against a background fabric that you like - absolutely nothing is called on the chart! Put your family initial in the center circle... and you know what? You can even change the alphabet to spell anything else besides THE ALPHABET! Stitch count is approx 170 x 200, the chart is nice and big, and she does have it printed in two colors of ink.

All four are presented as leaflets offering huge charts along with a colored master chart. They are all the same stitch count - 140 x 196. Coded for DMC - they all use fun, unusual colors of hand-dyed linens - which can lead to a witch-hunt of it's own! Designed by Aaron Houston - he used to be a comic book artist in his former life!

Stars & Stripes Forever and American Sampler House
from Annie Beez Folk Art
Here are two pieces that just might get you into the mood for the 4th Of July! By Annie Beez, they both feature cool house and neat billowing flags... I like them both!
  • Stars and Stripes Forever has a lot of quilt motifs in it, it uses gorgeous shades of Light Khaki, Cayenne, Whiskey, Roasted Figs, Dublin Bay. Deep Sea, Pine Needles, Lucky and Straw. A mixture of hand-dyeds, it has softer colors than the American Sampler House, and finishes approx 5-1/2 x 8 on 32ct Country Vintage Mocha Linen.
  • American Sampler House is full of brighter traditional colors of Ecru, Wrought Iron, Jay Bird, Blue Suede, Blue Jeans and Cayenne. It's worked on a light blue background and finishes abut 5-1/2 x 6-1/2.

Tournesol Bleu by Reflets de Soie -- click to see more! Tournesol Bleu
from Reflets de Soie
Isabelle of Reflets de Soie has yet another over-the-top elegant beaded pincushion creation. Stitched entirely in petite glass beads, you're doing only half stitches with one strand of thread over 2 on 35ct linen. (I haven't tried it, but you can probably do these on 18ct Aida - but you might need the curve of the cushion stuffing to make the fabric convex so the beads lay properly.)

Presented as the chart with beads, Isabelle has sorted and labeled all the beads, so you're ready to go. Tournesol Bleu measures just 69 x 69 stitches - so under 4 inches in size, and she's finished it into a biscornu shape.Talk about an elegant cushion! The metallic beads just glisten - like the reflecting gold leaf on the display plate!

New Designs from October House
  • Cheerful Giver --This is a sweet little piece - worked on 32ct with Weeks Sage and Tarragon and Classic's Sweetest heart and Root Beer Float colors. The featured trim is Vintage Mini Poms by Lady Dot.
  • Love and Joy - Another cushion-sized piece, this is about 5 x 6-1/2 on 32ct, and is stitched with Gentle Art's hand-dyed Simply Wools of Ruby Slipper, Baby Spinach, Old Red paint, Maple Syrup, Chalk and Blue Spruce. The wools are wonderful to stitch with, and really give you a softer, deeper look than the cotton flosses - REALLY nice.
  • Flosstube Friends - Well, I want to be the young, skinny one in the green dress way down there on the end! Just a fun little piece... it's pretty big at 7 x 17 on 40ct!
  • Sew Blessed - A cute Sewing Room sign! Finishing about 5-1/2 x 6 on 36ct, right now it's worked in Classic's hand-dyed cottons of Rose Petal, Strawberry Parfait, Mauvelous, and Weeks Mocha, Louisiana Hot Sauce, Sockeye, and Peony. If you need other colors, they should be really easy to change - might be fun to dig some buttons out from you button box, too!

Spring Scamper from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more Spring Scamper from Luminous Fiber Arts
Oh my gosh, this is the CUTEST! What a wild ride everyone is enjoying! *It's time for Spring Scamper, the annual race through the tulips to see who is the fastest! The bunny and chick are leaping into the lead, while their friends race to catch up in their carrot-mobile. A chick in a radish plane (that is the best part!) flies overhead towing the race banner while tossing carrots like confetti down on the competitors! What a charming scene!

Presented as a chart, this measures 111 x 266 - so it'll finish approx 7 x 16 on 32ct. Worked with hand-dyeds and lots of DMC, I just love it. You COULD do this on 18ct linen and use #5 Perle Cotton... like the Bent Creek globe kits or the Shepherd's Bush stockings... then finish it into a glorious big couch pillow... it'd measure 12 x 30! (take a ton of thread... but how fun anyway!)
Enjoy several other new designs when you click through!

Coded for DMC, get out some beads and metallics if you feel like it... these gorgeous pastel eggs will be so much fun to stitch!

Thistles has fun new designs!
Liezbeth is from the Netherlands...and when we took our Silver Needle/Jeannette Douglas Tulip Time River Cruise to Holland two years ago... she met our group of 90 stitchers for a day with a huge trunk show of her things. It was delightful... and a neat memory.
  • Flowershop comes straight from her imagination! Stitched with 23 different shades of Weeks hand-dyed flosses, I'm not sure how large it is... but I think about 8 x 15. I see three panels here... the little shop and all it's gardens of flowers and trees. It's so happy, I just love it!
  • Merry X-Mas Welcome - Oh, there are pigs-in-love for Valentines and a black cat on Halloween that go with this - isn't this plump gingerbread cottage the cutest? Hansel and Gretel live there! It measures about 5 x 9 in size, I think, and is stitched in Gentle Art's Simply Wools of Tea Rose, Raven, Harvest Basket, Buttercrunch, Ruby Slippers, Cidermill Brown, Chives, Morning Glory, and Chalk.
  • Hilltop Village in Winter - This finishes Liezbeth's 4-season set... she traveled in southern Italy in 2019... and loved all the old villages on the hilltops and mountains. So we get smidgens of European villages all throughout the year. Finishing about 6 x 8... all of them are delightful!

Presenting the Music in America Series from Ronnie Rowe
Wow... these are definitely for the serious music lover - and a serious stitcher! Ronnie Rowe is a really fun guy. I'd heard about his stuff for years... I didn't know he was a 'real person' until he showed up at market for the first time a couple of years ago! The man is eternally cheerful and assured me he was, indeed, alive! Completely talented - he sketches out all this stuff and then stitches it and charts it! Absolutely unbelievable in detail and vision, his designs will remain classics. His covers really don't do justice to the stitched pieces.

New this year are these 5 tributes to music. Each is presented as a chart and coded for just plain 'ol DMC floss. His style is to mimic pen and ink - these are so exciting, so realistic. They'd be lovely in a music room, recording studio, office, school... anywhere someone can appreciate them. They are generous in size - all around 12 x 17 (180 x 270 or 300 in stitch count) - so visually commanding!

Infant Book #1 from Susanamm - click for more Happy from Susanamm - click for more The Skull from Susanamm - click for more
Cute Variety by Susanamm Cross Stitch!
All of her designs are funky... and generally heavy on the stitch count. They are big, lots of solid worked areas, and they'll use tons of your DMC! Sometimes the charts are intense because they are so much solid stitching... but a lot of needleworkers really like that!
  • Infant Book #1 - This is a set of colorful motifs to arrange however you want. The animals along the top row are larger - 100 x 75-ish in stitch count - so they would make darling single pillows or bedroom door signs - something like that. The little birds and mushrooms are 40 and 60 in count... just cute and fun.
  • Happy is just that! Focus on the chickens - not the blue background - you can stitch these on any color fabric you want! They are 161 x 172.
  • The Skull - Oh my gosh, I think this is so cute! But, but, I think I would skip the pumpkin because the chart makes my head spin! (It's solid and about 80 x 80 stitches of 349, 606, 646, 720, 817 and 922 - it's a whopper!) The skeleton is so darn cute, and the whole thing uses only 9 shades of DMC... just super fun... so get out that floss!

Dog Lovers, Cat Lovers and TONS of Buttons and Pins from PuntiniPuntini
Our Puntini Puntini Button order has finally arrived from Italy - and we are experiencing Button Bliss and Pin Pleasure! Paola does such a great job on her tiny creations - they are truly bitty works of hand-made art. Check out our interior page that lists everything we have - these two new charts are there too!

Cat and Dog Lovers - Presented as charts, each measures 70 x 90 in stitch count. Coded for DMC, change your house colors and what you have growing in the pots if you need to... but don't change the cute little clay puppy or kitty sitting on the front steps! You get that button along with the round 'paw' button above the door, and the matching (smaller version) dog or cat pin that you see up on the roof. If you stitch just the house, and not the bottom border, they'd make a 4-inch pin cushion, and then you could stick that pin in there where ever you want! Each chart comes with its necessary 3 Puntini clay pieces. And don't miss the Dog Pins and Cat Pins, if you want even more embellishment!

Project Quarantine: Stay Home & Stitch! from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more Project Quarantine: Stay Home & Stitch! from With Thy Needle & thread
What a fun project to tantalize your stitching fingers and keep your heart happy... Let's Stay Home and Stitch! Stitched on anything you like, the area inside the little hoop is worked over one thread - so keep that in mind when choosing fabric, the satin stitches on the spools of thread will be ok no matter what you use. It finishes approx 3 x 7-1/2 on 36ct.

Brenda sent a really lovely letter with the shipment... she is donating $1.00 for each of these patterns sold to Center for Disaster Philanthropy Covid-19 Response Fund. The donations to this fund will support non-profit organizations working in areas identified as having high numbers of affected individuals and those working with the most vulnerable populations. Areas of emphasis include helping health-care workers with purchases of masks, gowns, gloves and other protective equipment, supporting quarantined and vulnerable individuals, and hygiene promotion campaigns to limit the spread of the virus.

A Christmas Rose
from Blackbird Designs
#4 In their Christmas Series of samplers, it is stitched on Picture This Plus's 36ct Wren and uses Weeks threads of Dirt Road, Havana, Oscar, Parchment, Pelican Gray, Red Rocks, Sandcastle, and Tarragon.

It finishes a petite 6 x 8-ish... perfect to perch on a table or bookshelf. (I THINK the other three in this series have been Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad and Bringing Good Cheer.)

Square Dance
This is a set of 4 leaflets - featuring the months, all very small (40 X 40 stitch count) and cute. The set is now complete.

Cecelia is part of The Trilogy... and WOW... now I see who designed so many of the 'Secret Gardens' they did years ago! These are real colorful and cheerful... and will make an awesome set of stitched blocks! She is also offering a freebie border chart for this (513 x 55) in case you want to do them all in one lonnnnngggg row (which could be 32 x 3!). Individuals will take 1/2 a yard to complete... long skinny row will need a long 1/4 yard cut.

Jump Into Spring from Jeannette Douglas Soar into Summer from Jeannette Douglas Fall Into Autumn from Jeannette Douglas Cozy into Winter from Jeannette Douglas
The 4 Seasons of Florals from Jeannette Douglas
  • Jump Into Spring - First in a 4-seasons series... chart format, hand-dyed cottons, pretty 5 x 5 pin cushion designs with just a few special stitches.(it just so happens that our last Circle of Friends design is the Winter edition of this... so if you are in our Circle - yours is at least a year early!). The patterns are presented as charts and they're stitched on 32ct from Picture This Plus.
  • Soar into Summer is the second seasonal basket of flowers - it companions Jump Into Spring - which has already been released. A sweet 4 x 5-ish piece, it features a perky and quirky border with a few rows of specialty stitches along the bottom of the basket. This is now a lovely 4-piece set.
  • Fall into Autumn is Jeannette's third in this seasonal set of pin cushions. We already have Jump Into Spring and Soar Into Summer, and Cozy into Winter is coming in December. (You'll remember that Cozy was our Circle of Friends Design last December... so lots of you already have that one - hopefully some have finished it!) Really a pretty little piece, it uses hand-dyed cottons and the bands all across the bottom feature special stitches.
  • Cozy into Winter is the final one in the set. If you were a member of our Little Help From Our Friends Stitching Circle this year... you should remember this as our first design last January. (So you already have it.)

Sunflowers & Crows Pin Cushion and Sunflowers & Crows Beaded Fob from Fern Ridge - click to see more Sunflowers and Crows from Fern Ridge Collections
Seems like we're just getting past the sunflower and crow season... so technically you have a year to get ready for them again with these! Fern Ridge's matching beaded scissor fob and pin cushion set is FULL of lip-puckering late fall color. The linen for the 3-1/2 x 5 cushion is 28ct Riviera Olive - a strong olive green, and the flosses are bright golden yellow, deep burgundy, along with crisp green and cinnamon. The complete kit contains that fabric and thread, along with the Chianti Lady Dot Ball edging trim, the hand-dyed silk ribbon to hold a pair of your scissors, coordinating batik backing fabric, the JABCO clay sunflower button and 4 burgundy corner buttons, and the little glass black crow pin by The Glasshopper.

The matching Peyote Stitched beaded fob is stunning! Those beads and crystals in the fringed decoration really pick up the light... I can't stop playing with all that beaded fringe! This kit comes with everything you need to make that piece - which should take you 4 to 6 hours to complete.

Another new Animal Biscornu
from The Tiny Modernist
This darling little Koala arrived this week... he joins Tiny Modernist's set of whimsical pin cushions - most of which are unusual animals we don't get to stitch much! You can make JUST one of the small corner motifs for an ornament or a fob, or just one side of the two-sided cushons - whatever you have time for.

The whole set so far is pictured on our Tiny modernist page... cute as can be! Each is offered in a single small card chart format, so you can pick and choose favorites.

Patchwork de la Plage from Jardin Prive - click for more Sampler aux Fleurs from Jardin Prive - click for more Sampler aux Fleurs and Patchwork de la Plage
from Jardin Prive
We have a pair of new arrivals by Jardin Prive that look like they'd be fun to stitch. Presented as charts, they are both coded for DMC floss.
  • Sampler aux Fleurs measures 254 x 190, and finishes 11 x 14 on 18/36ct fabric. You can stitch it in one color of hand-dyed (cat sampler is stitched that way on her page) if you want - or the 8 DMC's - 152, 223, 733, 931, 932, 3011, 3781 and 3790. Not all the letters are in all the alphabets on here - to save space and to mimic antique samplers! You could have fun with your family - make 'em figure out what's missing - or you could change some of the ABC letter order and stitch words or names instead.
  • Patchwork de la Plage is another patchwork design - we have cats, dogs and Halloween already on her pages - this is another cute design theme. Tiny one-inch squares, they build together to make a charming sampler. Do a bunch of individual squares and make bitty fobs or whatever, stitch 3 or 4 together to make pin cushions - you could make at least a dozen different combinations with this and make a whole bowl of cute smalls! So darn cute, it's coded for DMC's of 310, 321, 437, 597, 733, 783, 839, 922, 3809, 3810 and 3865.

Vintage Sewing Accessories from Les Petites Croix de Lucie
This is a neat pattern. It is a medley of antique sewing accessories and tools, all stitched with 26 various shades of DMC floss. The charts in here are huge, and all in color. You can stitch each 'thing' individually or do the entire medley, which measures 117 x 141 - so only 7 x 9 on 32ct!

It looks a lot bigger than that, so the moral of this story is PIN CUSHIONS AND LITTLE SEWING CASES! That tape measure is about 15 x 60 the button card is only 34 x 34, the safety pin is only 10 x 30... these are enchanting little what-nots! Get the chart, and then figure out what you want to do with all the designs... this is a 'must have!'

Little Mean Green Fabric Clips - click for more
Little Mean Green Fabric Clips and Mini Clips by Clover
  • Little Mean Greens - Just a small package of 10 - 1-inch transparent slime-lime super-duper strong mini-clips... use these to help keep lots of fabric rolled up or multiple sheets of a chart clipped together. They are a little wider on the finger-grabbing end - so they're easier to hold onto.
  • Mini Clips - A bit smaller than the Mean Greens, teeny weeny, easy to see, and SUPER strong. These come in a package of 20 red and aqua, or a cool little plastic, divided storage box - red, purple, aqua, yellow and green - 10 of each for $30.

All The fun Of The Fair from Little Dove Designs
Oh we might not be going to The Fair much in 2020... but we used to... and we will again! Now it means greasy food, and kind of getting sick watching the crazy rides. The 4-H exhibits are neat... the booths selling ironing board covers - not so much.

So WHY do we remember it so well from when we were little? Everything must have been colorful back then, the candy was delicious, and those rides didn't make you sick - just super scared!

This is a fun scene from your memory - measuring 123 x 176 - so 9 x 12 on 28ct. Coded for DMC, choose a fun background fabric color so the white will show up, and for heavens sake, add some metallics and beads to this! What a fun summer decoration to get out and display from June to September!

Little Berry Thief from Scattered Seed Samplers - click to see more
Little Berry Thief
from Scattered Seed Samplers
This is a sweet berry-shaped pin cushion with a little brown bird nibbling his precious and ripe strawberry. Stitched on 36ct Vintage Country Mocha linen with regular ol' DMC of B5200, 221, 869, 3011 and 3799... it finishes about 3-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches in size.

The chart includes an actual-sized template for the fabric size, and another for the green leaf top. Make that from vintage fabric or some wool. I like that Feather Stitching on the backside, too; it closes your berry!

I Smell Children and Wicked Women Unite
from AB Designs
Amy Bruecken has a couple of new designs that are full of the personality of her favorite season - Halloween! Presented as single charts, she suggests wild fabric to complement the regular, solid DMC flosses she's used on them. You can add embellishments where-ever you want, she doesn't have anything specific featured on them.
  • I Smell Children will finish approx 4-1/2 x 8 on 32ct... if you don't want to offend your grand children - you CAN leave off the words... but this might really be cute propped in the candy bowl just for fun!
  • Wicked Women Unite is kind of a return of Amy's Fridge Art from a few years ago - little 3 x 3 squares that finished into refrigerator magnets. Five little squares you can arrange however you like... again, just regular DMC floss!

Spooktacular by Hinzeit -- click to see more new designs Spooktacular
from Hinzeit
We haven't had anything new from Hinzeit for quite some time... but I saw this one and liked it! Kind of a hint of a Jack-O-Lantern, it's pretty bold and cute. Measures 49 x 191 - you can stitch it on anything you want - 32ct makes it 3 x 12.

Coded for regular DMC floss, the chart comes with a spider charm. I would categorize the spider as icky! He's over 1/2 an inch in size, the kind that 'hops' when you try to get it, and I would definitely NOT step on one of these with bare feet! (charm or real!!!) So there you have it - charming with a terrifying embellishment!


Yes, there's even MORE!
