The New Spring 2022 Mill Hill Bead Kits are here!
4 *New* Samplers from Cross Stitch Antiques
Kathleen Littleton has redone 4 gorgeous samplers... love, love, love reading the history included with each of these... and the design quirks that make them extra special! Her charts are lovely - she gives you an overview pic of the entire chart, then presents it across several pages - but on big sheets of heavy, glossy paper. VERY nicely done patterns.
Caballos Corriendo Horses Running and Dos Caballos ONE Horse Running from Ronnie Rowe
Horses Running and Two Horses... A pair of dramatic designs by Artist Ronnie Rowe. These are stunning on paper, but even more-so when you see them stitched! We have them on the shop walls... and what a treat! Presented in chart format, choose any white fabric you like to work on. Then grab lots of black and gray DMC's... (or change to browns and taupes) and maybe a highlighter to keep your place on your chart... and you're ready!
Each piece measures 190 x 300 in stitch count, so on 14/28 they'd be 13-1/2 x 21-1/2... something impressive on your wall. Just beautiful works of art. The titles are a little confusing side by side here... the 'Corriendo' piece features the two horse srunning. The 'Dos' piece has the one horse running with the highlighted pale horse in he background. To save confusion, just get 'em both!
Raising the Flag, Baby Feet and Eiffel Tower from Stitching Jules Design
Jules and Ronnie Rowe started communicating online... and mentor helped student! They are now friends, and Ronnie was thrilled that Jules came to Market with her new designs! So we have followed through and added these to our Ronnie Rowe page.
A Rainbow of Threads & Garden Beds and Stitching Love and Kindness from Ardyth Designs
There are two gorgeous new multi-page books by Ardyth Designs artist Amanda Mae Mac Naughton. Definitely multi-media - both books feature several different projects and different techniques!
Spring and Autumn
from Annie Beez Folk Art
A pair of seasonal designs - both presented as charts, they are coded to DMC.
The Wizard of Oz Tree and Lucky Mouse by Tiny Modernist
Cactus Cat, Christmas Cat, Bertie, Ellie and Myrtle from Satsuma Street
Nobody does brilliant happy colors like Jody Rice from Satsuma Street! I ordered some things and truly forgot how charming they are until I unwrapped them today! Everything is beautifully presented with LARGE chart graphics, all is coded for regular DMC, in color, and on very stiff card-stock paper.
Beeswax Bliss and Little Waxers in Pouches
In the Garden
from Fairy Wool in the Wood
With Mimi-Pig! By Fairy Wool in the Wood, this charming 140 x 140 design features Mimi with her watering can surrounded by 6 blocks that feature scenes from her garden. Stitched on Fairy Wool's own hand-dyed 32ct linen (finishes 9 x 9), she has funny little blotches on here that look strange when nothing is stitched on it, but when you're finished, they look like little splotches of garden dirt! The fruit trees, the veges and tools, something about this is really charming.
Everyone was into stickers this year at Market (I believe this is a limited edition market exclusive) and along with the linen I bought for each pattern, they all come with a sheet of Cassandra Fairywool's whimsical artwork on the charming stickers!
The Houses on Peppermint Lane from Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery are Finished!
This charming set of 9 gingerbread houses by Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery has finished with these last three houses: Pomegranate, Needleworker and Christmas Houses. All basically the same size with lovely flower pots, a reindeer and snowman in all the yards, they all feature a different holiday house.
The cool sampler borders along their top row, great colors, and all those bitty dividing motifs, there is a lot happening with this set. Stitch each house individually, or join them together with Lori's freebie border chart which is available on her website. The whole thing measures 347 x 277 - so an impressive 19 x 15 on 36ct! Each house is presented in its own chart... so stitch away!
Additions to the Year in the Woods Series from Cottage Garden Samplings
Wow, is this little guy elegant and exotic! Just look at him... verrrrryyyy proud of his lovely winter cabin-in-the-winter-woods! Cottage Garden Samplings is beginning a new set of 12 designs entitled *A Year in the Woods.* You can watch for them to come out monthly in 2022 and collect JUST the ones you want... or you can join our auto-ship and just have them turn up in your mailbox (like magic!) as they are released this next year.
The Fox is the first in the 2022 series. Vinniey has such fun 'textures' in her designs - she just uses shapes (the curves in the tail) and tiny repeats (look at the body pattern) in her designs to really bring them to life.
This one is done on Picture This Plus's Mirage linen... possibly a challenge to get, we have some beautiful Cross Wing Collection darker hand-dyeds, but maybe you have something pretty already waiting in your stash!
This auto began in November of 2021 and will continue with one chart monthly with a planned finish by December of 2022.
Note: The 2021 Series, A Time for All Seasons, is now complete - We can now ship the whole set at once!
Lucite Dome Magnifiers
There are very handy little domes to place onto your paper or fabric to immediately magnify whatever it is you need to see better. Coming in 2 sizes - I hope you can see that difference in my picture, and then see the magnification degree. The smaller one is a little less powerful than the larger, but both are SUPER HANDY to store in your kitchen utility drawer or your stitching bag. They come with a velveteen draw-string storage pouch to protect them from scratches as well.
The larger one measures 2-1/2 inches in diameter and about 1-1/2 inches high.
The smaller one is 2 inches in diameter, and about an inch high.
Both magnify ALL THE WAY TO THE EDGE of the dome viewing area, so are very, very helpful!
Spring Parade from Lila's Studio
What a cute set of bunnies all driving their fruit and vege convertibles! Four 'cars' in two different pattern sets, each ornament measures 70 x 70 stitches - so almost 4 x 4 on 36ct - and is coded for DMC floss.
Make them each into individual stand-up blocks to make a 'train' around a bowl of dyed eggs, but cute all stitched in a row as well. I think my favorite is the Strawberry Car... but Carrot isn't far behind! Set one has the blue egg, basket, carrot race car and duck. Set two has the strawberry, radish, sheep and artichoke cart!
Fresh new offerings by Luminous Fiber Arts
Spring Fling from Petal Pusher
Here is another fun parade of Petal Pusher's set of 5 favorite farm animals all decked out for their season! So far we have these same 5 animals featured in Halloween Hoedown, Christmas Hoedown and Patriotic Parade. MAKE SURE to visit Barbie's page... as we have them all pictured there. The horse is now the Galloping Gardener, the sheep is Wooly Wellies.
Next, we have Spring Chickens - can you see them all hiding in the flowers of the trellis? The 4th Is my favorite - that little pig. (He was Uncle Ham in the patriotic one, Heavenly Hog in the Christmas one, and Bat Pig at Halloween - now he's Pigmallion!) And finally, Buzzy Bovine - a cow wearing a bee costume, of course! 5 Small charted desgisn available separately, or in their set!
New Arrivals from Silver Creek Samplers from Silver Creek Samplers
Always words and verses... this is kind of the 'trademark theme' of most of Diane's designs. You just love what they have to say! Choose just about any fabric you are happy working with; the charts are coded for hand-dyeds as well as regular DMC's.
Love is Patient from Artful Offerings
Artful Offerings has a sweet new piece to help celebrate the Valentine's Season. A fluffle of bunnies (we had to google that!) is busy bringing the key to your heart!
All dressed warmly in their red Valentine sweaters, it'd be fun to add Wisper furry thread for tails and some red metallic for the hearts! Even black metallic for the wrought iron key. Finishes about 9-1/2 x 5 on 36ct, it is coded for Weeks hand-dyed flosses as well as DMC.
Presenting the 2022 Collector's Heart from Heart in Hand
Cecilia is shaking up her annual heart collection a little this year with this charming 'scene' of hearts and love! For 24 years she has done annual hearts - over half have been retired - but we have every annual heart edition still available, so not to panic!
This year's tells us to 'Make life beautiful for others.' The kit includes the chart and 32ct Picture This Plus's Heartland hand-dyed linen, along with embellishments she's used. You'll need to add the few flosses from your stash to make this cute cushion!
Little Sheep and Monkey Tape Measures
We used to carry these, then the company went away... and like Little Bo Beep, we lost our sheep! But here they are again... even cuter than before! 60-inch/150cm vinyl tape measures are coiled up inside these furry guys, press the tummy and the tape retracts
Perfect for your stitching tote... you might have a hard time keeping some in the family away from yours. And, somehow nobody steals them out of the kitchen tool drawer either! Each tape measure is about 2-1/2 to 3 inches in size.
Needle Travel Mania Shop Guide for 2022
Ohhhh... This annual shop directory across the US has arrived! Not published since 2020 because of the Big C, we now have an updated book featuring listings for almost 5,000 quilting, spinning, knitting, needlepoint, crocheting, weaving, embroidery and best-of-all Cross Stitch Shops! A wonderful little book, it weighs over a pound, and has 530 pages of listings for shops.

You can see what is there, where ever you go, you can call ahead, make some planned (or unplanned!) stops - just enjoy needlework of every kind, no matter where you go!
Spring Quaker and Nevermore from Lila's Studio
Lila's Studio has two new designs... both are full, full, full of busy-ness and are tremendously eyecatching!
Love You, Warts 'n All! from Val's Stuff
Look what has arrived from Val's Stuff... a darling limited edition just in time for Valentine's Day! This darling green frog is sending her love out to her other 'bumpy' friends - her hearts made of felt are big, bold and bright. Presented in a kit format, she's stitched on perforated paper... like a card... and comes with an envelope so you can even mail this to your favorite 'warted-love' if you want!
Finishing 5 x 7, the kit comes with the chart, black sparkle felt background, the pretty printed cotton fabric background, 3 colors of pink felt, the perf paper for the stitching, Wonder Under and freezer paper for construction and finishing, 5 buttons and that mailing envelope. You will need to supply DMC flosses from your stash. Cute and colorful, Val has made these one-time only... just for Valentine's Day 2022!
Victorine Chenevas-Paule 1869
from Reflets de Soie
A beautiful sampler - full of floral pots and borders. The stitch count for this is 262 x 242, so it will finish about 13 inches square on 40ct.
A lot of soft cremes and beige shades, it is coded for Silks (which we have) or DMC - ecru, 945, 415, 3813, 833, 522, 3362, 831, 543, 309, 842 and 732.
The individual urns would make gorgeous individual pin cushions. Presented as a full color chart with silks optional.
*Vintage* Needlework Gadgets!
None of us Cross Stitchers are old enough to have *Vintage Tools*... but it's kind of fun to attach that term to these past favourites of our stitching bags! Produced by various tiny companies over the years that are no longer in business, Yarn Tree (one of our industry vendors) has re-invented all these fun things you may still have (or not!) and miss (or didn't know you needed one!) We are thrilled to be able to get these past favorites again!
Pretty Plastic-Papery Pouches from Kaffe Fassett
Help stay organized with this pair of recycled-materials zipper topped pouches! They are made from recycled water bottles! Decorated with the artwork of Kaffe Fassett, the smaller pouch measures 5 x 8 and features his 'Fabulous Florals' Quilt. The larger zip pouch measures 6 x 9 and is covered with Kaffe's 'Diamond Quilt' pattern.
Then, just for fun, I ordered a few matching PUZZLES! I know - nothing to do with cross stitch. But the Holidays and family visits always mean puzzles, and I couldn't pass these by! A quilter you love would LOVE one of these! The Puzzles are 1000 pieces, and finish about 20 x 29-1/2.
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.
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.
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!
New Samplers by Brenda Keyes of The Sampler Company are on the way to us!
I'll Keep You Warm from Val's Stuff
Val has two new wintery designs, bright in color and quick to stitch. Each is stitched on 14ct perforated paper with DMC from your stash. The kits come with the chart, paper, back mounting felt pieces. The featured buttons and the poke includes a painted wooden skewer as well.
I'll keep You Warm is just a cute sunny thing to perch on your windowsill, or attach to a wooden block. It finishes about 3 x 5. Get creative with your finishing... these are too cute!
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!
The idea is to choose specific motifs from the entries to make your own family, vacation, or event pieces. You can use your own vacation pics or special event pics as the guide and stitch a memory that REALLY LOOKS LIKE YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR PIC!
Each book is spiral bound and printed in full color on heavy pages. The charts are huge, and as I mentioned, each book includes hundreds of individual options.
The Halloween Alphabet
from Romy's Creations - All the way from Italy!
Look what just arrived! A & B through M & N are here now... and more are coming later this Fall. This is a DARLING set of small cushion-sized letters... each measures 60 x 60 in stitch count. Presented as charts AB, CD, EF, GH...etc... we will be up to MN, with the rest due to release this Fall.
Romy is using her own hand-dyed flosses, and *We have the entire set of 21 skeins of her threads to do all of them!* Can't wait to get a big bowl and fill it with candy and alphabet cushions! (We're doing an auto-ship for the rest of this set as well.)
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?
Ghoul's Crossing from Praiseworthy Stitches
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)
The Kitchen Counter - The Complete Set of 4 Designs - Presented in 3 Charts from Hands On Designs
This has been a really cute set of designs - fun for any kitchen. Choose YOUR kitchen colors if the red and aqua don't match... they'll be just as cute.
Lick the Bowl, It Came With The House and Take Whisks are the three main designs with the 4th, Measure Up, being the bonus design that comes in parts from the other three charts. Each measures about 4 x 6, they'd all make cute housewarming gifts or kitchen renovation treats!
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!
How The Finch Stole Christmas
from Artful Offerings
By Artful Offerings, isn't this a festive-looking guy? All dressed in his Santa Suit, he's holding a bright green package... lets hope he is DELIVERING rather than swiping!
Stitched on 18/36 he measures about 3 x 5. Coded for DMC and Gentle Art Sampler Threads, Karina has called for Simply Wool for his hat, trousers and collar trim.
Presenting Autumn - Blue Flower Style!
Jeannine McGowan designed these 4 pieces for our summer event this past July. We are thrilled to be able to offer them now as shop exclusive charts... and it's just the right time of year for all the little acorns! Everything is stitched on a very light green hand-dyed 36ct linen. Waterlily is good, Country Vintage Mocha would be good... even something with a golden tint would be great with all these Autumnal colors. There are lots of possibilities across the different fabric options. A Fat Quarter 'of whatever' will do all the designs, and if you want us to choose some velveteens and trims to coordinate for your set - we can, because we have our shop models! I'd do 2 velvets and 2 trims.
A New Santas Revisited Edition - the 8th!
from Prairie Schooler
Here come MORE Genuine Prairie Schooler Annual Santas that have been out of print! We finally now have 1997, 1998 and 2013 again.
This should make all you collectors out there very happy, as we are really close now to being able to get ALL 38! Keep stitching!
Sky-High Santa and Santa's Flight by Satsuma Street
Satsuma Street's Jodi Rice has sent two new Santa patterns both featuring hot air balloons - which is one of Santa's Sleigh alternatives!
Des Couleurs dans mon Jardin
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.
Brightly Colored Needle Tins!
Don't you just want to soak up all these colors? Magnetic Needle Tins complete with matching Stitch Dots... each measures 1 x 3 x less than 1/2 an inch.
Lids slide off... just a great way to store needles.
Fun New Hand-Embroidered Dish Towels from Bareroots
Oh gosh these are so much fun to stitch... you transfer on the design, and then just regular straight stitching with a few Lazy Daisies... and PRESTO... a pretty towel nobody wants to use!
But DO use them, they are nice towels, and they'll make you feel good! Towels come with the pattern to transfer on (use our Sulky Stick 'n Stitch transfer film), the flosses and rik-rak for the edge trims.
Presenting Caroline Amelia Trowell
from With Thy Needle & thread
Brenda Gervais his released a new sampler reproduction! Originally stitched by 10-yr old Caroline - a shepherd's daughter. Brenda tells us about Caroline, her family, where she lived and the significance of some of the motifs she chose for her sampler. The are photos of the original antique sampler in the leaflet as well.
Packed with sweet motifs, there are 3 'sections' to this... lots of opportunity for small cushion take-outs... and a pretty sawtooth border.
Stitched on 40ct hand-dyed linen by Seraphim, we have SEVERAL color options by Seraphim in various counts... so I am sure we can find you something lovely. Brenda uses a medley of DMC solids and Weeks hand-dyed flosses.
New Arrivals from Accoutrements
Wow... I need these Ruby slippers to transport me to the seashore so I can enjoy the palm trees and flamingos! Jeweled need minders with super-duper strong magnets attached... you can always find a place for another one of these! The flamingo is 3 inches tall, but the rest are smaller - an inch or two at best. Just love 'em all!
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!*
New Designs Have Arrived from Jeannette Douglas
4 Small stitching projects, and we love them all!
Two New Designs
from Carolyn Manning
Both of these designs are delightfully full of fun little florals. You could make a MILLION tiny cushions to nestle in a bowl, or make individual blocks from All the Smalls... use the DMCs called for or grab some varied hand-dyeds from your stash just for fun - beads too!
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!
New Lovelies From La D Da!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Little Mean Green Fabric Clips and Mini Clips by Clover
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!
Yes, there's even MORE!
