Embroidery and Punch Needle Kits from The Urban Acres
Summer Harvest Embroidery Kit Contents from The Urban Acres - click to see more Urban Acres is a new designer to our shop. Well, not 'really' - as Sallie is the daughter of one of our long-time customers! She brought these things in the other day, and told me she remembers shopping at The Silver Needle with her mom when she was little. I asked if it was a 'good memory' and she laughed and said it was. I guess we made a good impression, because here she is with her lovely surface embroidery kits and punch needle patterns! She has done an absolutely wonderful job with her designs, artwork, presentation, graphic arts, packaging, EVERYTHING.
  • Summer Harvest Embroidery - Chain, Satin, and Stem Stitches are featured in this 5-inch design embroidered on a gray background. Sallie has presented a full color diagram of the design, the full-sized iron-on transfer to apply to the provided gray base fabric. 7 Full skeins of DMC floss are included as well as the 7-inch hoop and the needles you'll need to work this. Contemporary, it'll look great in a deserving kitchen!
  • Folk Floral Bird Embroidery - A plump little pink and red bird perched on a flowering branch, this kit includes all you need... base fabric, the actual-sized transfer, DMC, the hoop - everything!
  • Folk Floral Punch Needle - Cute little blue 'thistle' flower, the design is already printed on a dusty lavender linen base fabric... uses DMC (from your stash.)
  • Wandering Strawberry - Punched on a luscious bright green base fabric, it calls for 6 shades of DMC floss.
  • Pink Floral - This one is punched on a very light, soft pastel pink background fabric - delicate and pretty. Calls for only 3362, 3012, 3033 and 783!

To Plant a Garden from Forbidden Fiber - click to see more To Plant a Garden from Forbidden Fiber
"To Plant a Garden is to believe in tomorrow." Stitch this for the Green-Thumbed-Person in your life! A Limited Edition design and kit I picked up at Market...it comes from Forbidden Fiber Company. They are 'mean and green' - their threads are hand-dyed, their hand-dyed fabrics match, and this particular kit comes in a hand-dyed cotton zip pouch that matches everything!

The green house design measures 150 x 108 - so around 7 x 9-1/2 on 32ct. The special kit comes with the fabric pouch, chart, 7 skeins of FF hand-dyed floss, a needle minder and the hand-dyed stitching fabric of either 25 Ct Lugana, 16ct Aida, or 40 ct Linen - a generous, hefty kit!. I chose three different fabric options to try to keep everyone happy! It's really pretty, and something fun for a 'plant head!'

St Nikolas by Jennie Lane - click to see more Autumn Harvest by Jennie Lane - click to see more New Designs By Jennie Lane
*Hand made stitch works by Jennie Lane* is the colorful designer name logo on these two new designs... and they are delightful!
  • Autumn Harvest is a stack of pumpkins that finishes approx 4 x 4 on 40ct Weeks Parchment hand-dyed linen. Stitched with Gentle Art and Weeks hand-dyed flosses, they feature some specialty stitches - Smyrna Crosses and Satins - for a lot of extra texture and fun. Just a little unexpected and a nice touch. Presented in a full color 6 x 9 chart.
  • St Nikolas is darling! He's stitched on 36ct Summer Khaki linen with an assortment of hand-dyed threads. Smyrna Crosses and Satin stitches all over in here, that glorious beard is all French Knots! BUTTTTTTT.... she tells you that you CAN do crosses if you want. (or Colonial Knots, or Rice, or whatever... this is a fun place to add something fun.) Beautifully presented in a nice large full color chart, even the regular-sized leaflet itself is a treat to hold! St Nikolas finishes 5 x 8... a must have!

Keys to Happiness from Monticello Stitches - click to see more Make Me A Blessing from Monticello Stitches - click to see more Make Me A Blessing and Keys to Happiness from Monticello Stitches
These two pieces caught our attention!
  • Make Me a Blessing to Someone Today - Does that mean I need a lot of work to BE a blessing to someone? Kind of makes you think a little, huh? Stitched on 36ct this finishes a huge 15 x 16... so definitely a bold prayer for that self help! Charted for DMC, it uses 24 different shades - multiple skeins of 6 of the colors.
  • Keys to Happiness Never put the keys to your happiness in someone else's pocket. Wow, there's another powerful life lesson! (Follow this advice especially if you want to be a blessing to someone else today!) We like this one a lot. You could always hang it right above the family house and car key rack (if you still use keys!). Coded for DMC, on 32ct it finishes about 9 x 11. Doesn't need to say much more, does it?
Fright Night from Val's Stuff
Fright Night from Val's Stuff
Val's Stuff has a new ornament/magnet design... a scary little purple bat flying through the night sky RIGHT TO YOU!

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

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!

Acts of Kindness Pinkeep
from Scattered Seed Samplers
Isn't this a sweet thing? A small 3-1/2 x 5 cushion, it is stitched with either DMC or hand-dyeds.

Gentle Art Simply Wools would be awesome on this as well - make those bunnies a little furry. Can you see that tiny bunny on there bringing the big rabbit the tulip? Offered as a chart.

Sow Kindness
from Hands to Work
'They that sow kindness gather love.' This is a charming row of houses featuring that great verse - finish it flat in a frame, or roll it like this charming drum!

Worked on Picture This Plus Ale linen, it uses Classic and Gentle Art hand-dyed flosses. The chart is beautifully printed inside. (One of the shop gals, who had a self-imposed-buying-restriction this week, caved, and opened this one up before she bought it. The chart is HUGE, and the center lines are printed in red. A quick and easy stitch!

This is an enchanting set of 8 different miniature fairy houses - I don't know which one is the cutest! Stitched on any aqua colored fabric, they are coded for DMC floss and measure about 55 stitches in size - so about 3-1/2 inches on 32ct. Can't you just imagine WHO lives in each one of them?

Presented in 8 individual charts; we DO have some sets bundled together WITH the border chart and center panel included in that packet. (Border charts are not offered with the individual charts.) The center reads 'Fairies Welcome.' Just the sweetest pic... they would all be cute as individual pillows on a fairy-lovers bed... or stitched together on her bedroom wall!

Float your mouse over the individual images above to see their names.

Anna Ohman 1873
from Lila's Studio
By Lila's Studio, this is an adaptation of an antique sampler found at an estate sale in Illinois... probably stitched in Sweden.

Charts with Pins from PuntiniPuntini
When I think of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter... I think of carrots and clovers, picnics at the beach, leaves and acorns, and snowmen! Paola from Puntini Puntini has 4 cute little pillow designs coded for DMC floss that finish only 3 x 7 each on 32ct. She has included two of her hand-made clay buttons in each season's chart, and offers an awesome collection of CHARMING hand-made pins and buttons to garnish them even more - if you want! Even if you pass on these charts, her pins and buttons are Over-The-Top-Cute and very detailed. Enjoy!!!

Good Night, Sleep Tight from Fairy Wool in the Wood - click to see more Good Night, Sleep Tight
from Fairy Wool in the Wood
Isn't this the cutest design? Stitch this on whatever you want... it's coded for 9 colors of DMC floss. Finishing approx 4 x 5 on 14/28ct... I think that is a little moose on the right. Check out the wise little owl on the left... just checking him out with his eyes wide open!

I remember that last part of this verse - *don't let the bed bugs bite!* If I had known at age 6 that bed bugs were REAL, I'd have never slept again! So, forget that part, and just enjoy the pair of forest friends having a sleep-over! Chart.

Sew Happy from All Through the Night - click for more Sew Happy
from All Through the Night
All Through the Night has several new things... I chose 10 of them... simple and cute... all are offered as charts. Sew Happy finishes 8 x 10 on 30ct Weeks Putty linen... he is worked in Gentle Art Sampler Threads.

I think he'd make a cute doorknob hanging for your stitching room! If you aren't lucky enough to have a *Stitching Suite*... maybe you have a thread box that needs a stitched top?
