Birds in the Hand Christmas

A medley of alphabet letters and a couple of bitty motifs, you could stitch parts of these and finish them just like the Making Minis if you want, they'd make cute little square block stand-ups too.

Charted for DMC or hand-dyeds, a few glass seed beads are included.

Hands On's Newest Releases
Cathy Haberman has three new designs; all have arrived in chart format.
  • Sunshine on a Stem -- Super-simple stitching for this glass jar of Black-Eyed Susans... what adds the charm are the felt leaves. Included with the chart for the 3 x 6 design is a strip of felt, so you can trim out little leaves to add to the stems. You will need Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Baby Spinach, Dungarees, Heirloom Gold, Wheat Fields, and Wood Trail. Easy Breezy!
  • Stitching is My Heart's Desire -- This is a cute little scissor storage case -- Cathy calls it a 'pillow keep.' Finishing only 4 x 4 and 2 x 2 on 28ct, the chart is coded for 4 colors of DMC floss. You can choose your finishing fabric FIRST and then change your floss shades to match -- easy stitching, the chart comes with a few finishing pictures as well.
  • Home for the Holidays -- This chart contains all three house designs, as well as the wording band across the bottom. It was originally presented as JUST the Wreath House with the wording band. The Garland and Snowflake Houses were published in the 2014 Just Cross Stitch Magazine's Ornament and Ornament Preview Issues that year... so they have not been available again till just now. The entire set is here. Stitched on 32ct Beachwalk linen with Sampler Threads or DMC, the little standing tri-fold is a neat way to finish them -- cute presentation and easy to store away till next year!


Keep Calm and Merry On from AB Designs - click for more Merry Kiss Moose from AB Designs - click for more Merry Kiss Moose & Keep Calm and Merry On
from AB Designs
AB Designs has sent two small Christmas designs that will just make you smile. Presented in chart format - there are no special buttons or anything - they just feature that fun polka-dot Belfast linen, and Amy's charm! Make the larger pieces (3 x 6) or the ornaments/pin cushions 3 x 3... there are several options open.

Little penguin is wearing the Royal Crown... and actually, I think the little moose needs a bit of mistletoe hanging from his antler! I like the JABCO peppermint buttons... we can send green or red peppermints, presents, stars, snowflakes, trees; I think little cushions and ornaments would be stunning trimmed with Lady Dot's Sizzle Mini Balls or Chenille trim (a bright Christmas Red!)

from Barbara Ana
Here is a VERY primitive piece by Barbara Ana that is full of charming details. The cover model is stitched on UNEVEN weave Osnaburg Cotton -- it is has 40 threads per inch one way, and 32 the other. (We do not sell this.) What results from a regular chart is a piece that is distorted in shape.

You CAN do this on any count you want... you'll still get the cute houses and the little girls that say *Lizzie & Me* and that cute little doll on there! Charted for only 6 shades of DMC floss, the overall chart count is 380 x 118 in stitch count.

Count Your Blessings from Annie Beez Folk Art - click to see more Thankful Pumpkins from Annie Beez Folk Art - click to see more Pins & Needles from Annie Beez Folk Art - click to see more
Three New Designs from Annie Beez Folk Art
  • Count Your Blessings
    This is a sweet design by Annie Beez Folk Art... it looks like a normal sampler, till you look it over... it's full of rabbits! I'm counting 12 on here! It would be cute as a nursery or young child's piece -- you could do a 'family tree' of everyone's birthdays on here... it'd be fun finished as a pillow. It's kind of big (165 x 116)... but it'd be a fun thing for a young stitcher to do, as well -- maybe with a little help from you! Cute colors, whimsical design, an easy chart... DMC or hand-dyeds are featured.
  • Thankful Pumpkins Give Thanks -- Stitch this 73 x 63 design, it'll finish just 3-1/2 x 4-1/2, and maybe finish it as a block stand-up instead of the fussy framing shown on the cover. It's a cute design, just needs to be toned down a little! A pin cushion pillow tucked among a few faux pumpkins would be nice, as well. Charted, it uses 7 different hand-dyeds and is actually worked on Antique white linen which you get to tea-stain per the chart instructions!
  • Pins & Needles Just a cute, organized house, alphabet and border, this finishes approx 6 x 7 on 32ct. Stitched with assorted hand-dyed flosses, something nice to stuff and nestle in your basket full of all the rest of your pin cushions! Chart format.


Harvest Hill from Abby Rose Designs - click to see more Harvest Blessings  from Abby Rose Designs - click to see more
A Pair of Harvest-Colored Pin Cushions from Abby Rose Designs
Here are two new charts that make into small 4 x 6 and 5 x 7 designs. Stitched with a mixture of brands of hand-dyed flosses, the houses will take a little longer to work up than the Blessings Penny rug piece.

Actually, the houses -- which are all about 30 x 40 each -- would make awesome individual cushions! Toss them in a basket with the sunflowers and trees constructed into their OWN set of cushions -- you could make 6 smalls out of this! Just fun, simple charts!


Tulip Heart Vase from Dames of the Needle - click for more Witchy Moon from Dames of the Needle - click for more To The Moon from Dames of the Needle - click for more To The Moon, Witchy Moon & Tulip Heart Vase
from Dames of the Needle
Dames of the Needle has a trio of new charts...
  • To the Moon and Witchy Moon -- this duo companions some of her other designs. Super striking, they are worked on Weeks Dye Works Carrot Linen (yes, both are... photographs on the chart covers don't show that too well!) with only Week's Onyx hand-dyed cotton floss. Finishing 5 x 7 and 7 x 7, choose ANY fabric you want -- the wilder the better -- and definitely a hand-dyed black thread of some sort, to get an eerie finish. You could even accent these with black beads for those individual stitches, or toss in some black metallics here and there! Or... stitch the moon in something gold!
  • Tulip Heart Vase -- Lots of bold, deep color in this one, it finishes 5-1/2 x 7 on Weeks 35ct Parchment linen. The fabric is actually fairly light, and I think we're used to seeing softer colors in a vase of flowers, so this looks intense. I think finish it with black edging -- pillow or framing -- I think it's super eye-catching!


The Victoria Sampler has sent two more pieces to their Stitched Gingerbread Village!
Pieces Nine and Ten: A Stitching Retreat Cottage -- ONLY 3 x 4 in size -- and The Village Tree -- just 4-inches high!
  • Gingerbread Retreat Cottage --Gingerbread Retreat Cottage from The Victoria Sampler - click for more Another of Thea's charming gingerbread houses stitched in multiple pieces on Picture This Plus's 28ct Gingerbread Linen, and then assembled. (Use your Magic By Mona talents you have learned in all our finishing classes, or follow the excellent steps and massive amounts of real pics Thea provides in the book -- WAY intimidating, but NOT hard in the end!)

    Joining the Needlework Shop, Bakery, Candy Cane Cottage, Tree Etui, Church, Stitching House, Quilt Shop and Haunted House, this charming 3 x 4-ish house is trimmed with tons of buttons, some beads, and lots of your pretty stitching. The Hardanger roof is the dressing on the cake! Leaflet has pattern layout of fabric, nice clear charts, the accessory pack contains all the silks, beads and buttons. All you need is the linen and #8 and #12 Pearl for the Hardanger on the roof.
  • Village Christmas Tree from The Victoria Sampler - click for more
  • Village Christmas Tree -- What a cute accessory for your growing village of miniature stitched houses! White and green scallops of stitches make your greenery! Your tiny tree finishes approx 4 inches tall on 28ct -- it's about 3 inches wide at the bottom. Presented in leaflet format with great charts and clear finishing instructions, the accessory pack as enough 'stuff' in it to stitch all three sides of one tree.

    The stitching is a simple Satin -- Bargello-type -- you are seeing all the buttons and beads on there as the ornaments! Thea tells you that you CAN choose some different colors of green linens, to make a little forest of these!!! Just the cutest thing, your trees could be ornaments, they could even be a cover for a bit of candy! Presented as a leaflet with accessory pack.

Boo Sewing Basket and Seek Goodness Pinkeep Drum from Stacy Nash Primitives
Boo Sewing Basket -- click to see more Stacy Nash has two new offerings...
  • Boo Sewing Basket is a super-simple and cute! You are stitching each of the 5 pieces individually -- they are only about 3 inches in size -- the bottom square is only 2 inches! After the cute pumpkin vine with kitty stitching is finished (Sampler Threads on 36ct), you use your Magic By Mona Finishing expertise to cover the side boards with your fabrics, and then whip stitch them together into the charming little bowl! (Bowl finishes less than 6 x 6 x 3, and Stacy gives you the actual-sized templates to cut them out of something stiff!)Seek Goodness Pinkeep Drum & Strawberry Emery -- click to see more

    If the bowl thing scares you... just make 4 little pin cushions and don't stress about it! Cute chart anyway! The finishing idea was first presented in Stacy's Limited Edition Kit from last Spring's Market... THAT design is still available
    (her Rose Garden Sewing Basket) -- but it's $54! This is $12!

  • Seek Goodness Pinkeep Drum & Strawberry Emery -- Just drab green stitching on natural linen... dress this up with a pretty antique cotton fabric top on your drum, maybe some wool on the bottom, and a coordinating mangy little berry on top that nobody would DARE eat -- except your dog! The little drum measures about 3-1/2 x 4-1/2, and the berry is just 2-inches long -- a perfect snack size! Again, actual-sized templates are included with the chart to make the drum and berry!

Halloween Quaker from Lila's Studio - click to see more Halloween Quaker from Lila's Studio
WOW, is this a cool piece!!!!! By Lila's Studio, this is stitched on Picture This Plus's Murky Linen -- it's a dark, drab but dramatic muddy grey-brown fabric! (Simply delicious, as it's name does not suggest!) Halloween Quaker measures a generous 261 x 180, so it finishes approx 16 x 11 on 32ct. Stitched with Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses, this has several cool elements to it.

The Quaker-inspired motifs are fun, especially the unusual spiders in one, and the black cats in another. That little village at the bottom is cool, the witch legs and boots are colorful, but your eye really goes to that silouette right in the center! Beautiful colors of thread against that fabric, chart calls for 40ct... we can order that for you... 32 is a little less scary to see!

I'm featuring three pin cushions here, because I like them all! Sandie used to offer most of her things in kit format... she is now steering more towards charts with embellishments only -- figuring most of us have lots of wonderful materials and threads already in our stash just waiting to be used!
  • Count Your Blessings and Give Thanks is the newest small card offering. It's the same pumpkin design reversed with two options for wording.

The card comes with a smattering of her frosted yellow flower beads for the pumpkin vine blossoms, you add the rest.
  • American Eagle is another cushion design measuring only 48 stitches square -- so 3 x 3 on 32ct. Stitched with regular DMC floss she's included the star button, you'll need to add the few beads, whatever fabric you want and those DMC's from your stash. Card chart includes the button.
