Paradise Street from Lilli Violette - click to see more Christmas in the Woods from Lilli Violette - click to see more Christmas in the Woods and Paradise Street!
from Le Temps Une Croix
  • Christmas in the Woods - This is a chart of a lovely evergreen tree decorated for Christmas. It is tipped in snow, and there are snowflake stitches scattered in the background, and snow under the gifts, so I think this is a little tree in the woods! Coded for DMC, it measures 145 x 133 in stitch count, so will finish approx 8 x 9 on 16/32ct. The little bits of instructions are printed in French, so I cannot read a word of it... but I can tell it's charming! Presented as a chart.
  • Paradise Street - This is a charming little french design -- a perky red scooter parked in front of an apartment??? I don't know exactly! I just love the simplicity of the design, the bold of the red against the clean gray and taupe. I like the stylized tree, the repeating round cobblestones... the tiny red dotted flowers... the talllll windows and the talllll lamp post! The chart is actually quite large -- it measures 187 x 167 -- so 12 x 13 on 14ct!


THE SECRET PIN CUSHION from MTV Designs - click for more MTV is gifted Italian designer with neat stuff! The Secret Pincushion Maria Teresa Vitali has some new designs -- we brought home three different sewing set designs -- all kitted up with her special wooden items and hand-made pins. The Secret Pincushion is especially cute, because it uses a Lone Elm Lane Shaker Pin Cushion Base that you make a cover for, and turn it into a little box!

Presented as a chart WITH a handpainted majolica Italian bead sewing pin, you stitch this design on 32ct linen using only 4 colors of Weeks flosses. Mount it on a puffed board, add some rik rak... and Presto... you have a miniature covered box! A real cute idea...

Oh my Gosh - Little Friends from Valerie Pfeiffer
If these aren't the cutest little people... they are each only 2 x 3 inches in size!!! Presented as small charts, they are coded for DMC floss, and each pattern has two charts -- one that highlights the cross stitches, the other that highlights any backstitching.

Absolutely precious, the birds are also offered in other larger designs by Valerie -- pictured on our inside pages. They are 'kind of pricey' -- we are aware of that -- but I guess it's less expensive than planning a trip to the UK just to bring a few home!

Miniature Sampler Scissor Fobs from Kim's Needle Needfuls - click for more Miniature Sampler Scissor Fobs
Kim's Needle Needfuls has beautiful new miniature sampler scissor fobs! She has taken images of antique samplers, shrunk them down into bitty 1-inch miniatures, and mounted them into lovely antiqued brass findings (they are even pretty on the back). Then she's chosen glass, shell and brass beads, and strung them together to complement the tiny featured sampler! Each Sampler Scissor Fob is unique... every one is different... but we chose ALL vintage colors to complement the brass and the sampler.

Each fob from clam-shell end to sampler finial bead measures about 5 inches. These are LOVELY! Very nicely done, classy, and I'm having a really hard time choosing my favorite!!! Some are deep blue, soft green, antiqued reads and roses... golds... if you have a color preference, just ask. If you order an assortment -- we'll mix the colors and samplers for you.

Really! Have you ever sat through a talk or meeting with NOTHING moving except the speaker's mouth? I found little cell phone fans to help you keep your cool!!!! 3-inch blades -- all different bright colors -- that plug into the charging hole of your cell phone, these little guys MOVE THE AIR!

Something fun and functional to have in your tote bag, desk, purse or even cosmetic bag, they feature a tiny adapter that plugs into the fan, and works in EITHER I-Phones or Androids. It most likely plugs into your Tablet or E-reader, too. They even have a touch on-off switch and come in a little zip-locking clear bag to keep it safe in your bag. You can still use your phone while your personal mini-fan is plugged in, it is silent, weighs nothing, and doesn't use lots of battery strength.

Wow, this is a petite and functional storage system for teeny tiny stuff!!!! Our 6 x 3-1/2 x 1-1/2 inch snapping closure box holds 25 different treats. Clear, so you can see what's inside, open to reveal removable dividers that separate 5 towers of screw-top jars. Each mini-jar is approx 1 inch round and 1/2 an inch high. They screw together -- so the lid on one becomes the bottom of the next.

VERY secure, and also clear so you can see what's inside... these even work for wet creams and lotions in your cosmetic travel bag! Everything is safe, organized, and compact! The little box weighs about 8 ounches.

Miniature Scissor and Key Fobs from Michael Powell
Presenting a delightful set of miniature key and scissor fobs -- all featuring the artwork of Michael Powell! I have always loved his things... and since he showed at market this Spring we were able to treat ourselves to lots of fun things!!! This is a collection of 6 different PAIRS of designs -- each is TWO-SIDED -- so each kit has essentially 4 designs in it! All are worked on 18ct canvas -- don't panic -- (it just makes a stronger and more durable fob when finished.) All Cross Stitch, the larger piece is the scissor fob -- 36 x 36 stitches -- finishing 2 x 2, while the key fob is a smaller companion version of the same design -- 27 x 27, finishing 1-1/2 inches square. Different on the fronts and backs, Michael has each of the 4 designs charted twice -- crosses on one chart, backstitch on another for clarity. All the flosses are included for everything... these are DARLING!!!!!

Sewing Clamp Box from Lone Elm Lane - click for more New Sewing Clamp Box from Lone Elm Lane
A charming new box featured on the cover of With Thy Needle's newest design... this little box is SO COOL! A concept by Brenda Gervais that Stephanie Elmer brought to be... this hand-made wooden box measures approx 4 x 4 x 3 with a clamping system that reaches down another 6 inches. It features a 1-inch deep recessed opening for your needlework. Next, there is a little 3 x 3 square drawer approx 1-inch deep that pulls out, and finally, the bottom features a 6-inch screwing clamp attachment that can fit up to a 1-1/2 inch thick table edge!

By far the coolest little box I have seen in a while... what an endearing decoration for your needlework! Currently offered in only the Vintage Dove finish... what a fun and unique way to finish and display a pretty pin cushion! If you are worried about damaging a table, consider a piece of felt underneath the box between it and your table, and a bitty piece underneath. You might want to clamp it out of reach of little hands -- this is the most intriguing thing -- and awfully fun to play with!!!!!

Ash the Octopus from Freddie's Friends Finn the Fish from Freddie's Friends
Meet Finn the Fish, and Ash the Octopus from Freddie's Friends
Just for the seamstresses of you out there, we have a few darling patterns of stuffed fabric animals. For the little ones in your life, they are sewn of bright fabrics (your choices) and bring smiles to their hearts!

What makes them cute is the fact that the seams are NOT turned in -- they are sticking out -- so they kind of have a more 3-dimensional attitude to them. Finn is about 15 inches long, 6 inches fat and 11 inches long. Ash is at least 15 inches... and he has 8 legs. These are not Cross Stitch patterns -- they are sewing patterns -- and match the rest of our Freddie's Friends Stuffed Zoo!

Chalkboard Quartet from Mill Hill - click for more
Chalkboard Quartet from Mill Hill
These are different for Mill Hill - and promise to be really fun to stitch! Their classic kits -- these are worked in 28ct Gumnetal linen with DMC flosses.

Finishing approx 5 x 5 or 5 x 7... give them a try!

Bandana Ranch from The Needle's Notion Bandana Ranch coming from The Needle's Notion

They are actually white 5-1/2 inch squares of 14ct perforated paper that JABCO has printed with stripes, spots or hearts of beige, pinks and greens. Each letter, also printed in black on the paper, features its own background... meaning all the M's have the pink stripes, but other letters have different colored stripes! Stitch a little or a lot -- they have charted only a small floral design for each, and provided buttons for garnish.

You supply the bits of floss from your stash. SO cute, colorful, fresh, bright, clean and cheerful... you can stitch just one initial or spell out a huge long greeting! Just depends on your budget! Frame or finish on scrapbook papers -- you decide.

Platinum Needles - click to see more Platinum Needles
John James has run out of Platinum Needles, and because costs have risen so much, will not be plating more. Yarn Tree, one of our industry distributors, purchased their back-stock that were loose -- just bulk -- and re-packaged them in their cool little screw-top clear plastic needle vials! So, now we have Platinum Tapestry Needles again!!! ('till these are gone, too!)

Some stitchers have allergies to nickel -- the normal plating on needles -- so Platinum is a more comfortable stitching option. (Do your needles get brown-ish (tarnished) and draggy??? If so, you are probably allergic to nickel!) So... for a happy time, we have Tapestry Needles available in #24 for 14/28 counts, #26 for 32-ish counts and #28 for smaller count fabrics.

The lamp plugs into the wall... It has a little flip-cover to protect the lens when not in use... a toggle on/off switch, and 8 x 9 base with lots of tiny storage areas for needles, scissors, pencils, just whatever. The main part of the arm is 12 inches in height, so it has a really nice table-reach. The 5-inch lens is wonderful -- so much more to see than the 3-1/2-inch of the Dorset! No assembly required... pull it out of the box and plug it in! Offered in white, this is a LOVELY lamp!!!

  • Morning Star Santa -- Very Olde Worlde, Santa in the snowy woods... you could add metallic to the stars and opalescent to the snow... and wool for the squirrel or the fur on his coat!
  • River Road Church -- Again, very traditional, this one would look really cool with silver blending filament in the shadows and opal in the snow.
  • Frosty Grants -- Quite the Kool Man... this is definitely a turn from the other designs... but so fun especially if you are stitching annual ornaments for a growing young man!

Handy little references to have... even if you are NOT stuck on some Desert Island!!

Finishing out Jeannette's 4-Seasons series are The Autumn Acorn and The Winter Deer. This has been such a pretty set of 3-1/2 inch square designs -- all have been stitched on 36ct Flax Linen with Jeannette's stunning array of hand-dyed silks and accented with just a few glass seed beads.

TONS of special stitches in these, the colors are so pretty for each season, so soft for Spring, so warm and carmelly for Fall. Although the models are framed, little pin cushions for these would be stunning... so enjoy your options. Offered as charts, each has a separate thread pack available that is full of gorgeous silks!

Gingerbread Quilt Shop from The Victoria Sampler - click for more Gingerbread Quilt Shop from The Victoria Sampler
Part eight of Victoria Sampler's charming stitched Gingerbread Village is here! Joining the church, tree, cottages, bakery (and even a haunted house which kind of snuck in here!), is a new Quilt Shop. Truthfully, we aren't enamored with the shape of this shop, but it might make a nice 'transition piece' in your village arrangement. TONS of stitching and design detail in here, you'll notice that the front door is actually a separate little sticky-out area, and there are the quilters in the window above!!!

Worked on 28ct Gingerbread Linen, there are wonderful finishing instructions included in the leaflet -- 18 pics -- and great stitch diagrams. The thread/accessory packet includes all the silks, metallics, beads, gingerbread men buttons, micro buttons -- and even the little shop dog!!!! With every side stitched differently, you get pretty quilts no matter which side you see! Offered as the leaflet with Accs pack separately. You will need a piece of linen at least 14-ish x 33... we like 1/2 yard cuts better!

Wooly Sheep Needle Minders - click to see more Wooly Sheep Needle Minders
Oh, we've carried these forever and ever in the shop... they are wooden sheep painted and wrapped with nubby wool yarn... and each has a magnet on his backside so he's a needle minder!

Measuring about 1-1/2 inches long and 1-1/4 inches tall, each sheepie is painted black and wound with either a creamy white or black yarn. They feature rare earth magnets on the back to grab onto your chart board, the refrigerator, your file cabinet... anywhere you want them to cling. Just cute as can be... choose between the white and black!!!

Loved You Yesterday & Leave an Imprint from Cherry Hill Stitchery
Cherry Hill Stitchery has a pair of new designs that are really cute, and might make perfect birth announcements.. Good color, simple designs with really good sentiments, they'd be easy to match colors with the new nursery if need be. If you want to personalize, I'd figure another three inches to the height... depending on your alphabet.
  • Leave An Imprint will finish approx 7 x 9 on 32ct Natural. I absolutely love those little owls!!!
  • Loved You Yesterday measures approx 5 x 11 on 28ct Antique White and is coded for DMC floss.

Le Lin d'Isabelle Teddy Bear Multiplication Table Teddy Bear Multiplication Table from Le Lin d'Isabelle
This is a precious multiplication table that might need to hang in the nursery of a budding mathematician! The chart is printed in French, so I can't read a word of it... but it is coded for DMC floss. The stitch count is 170 x 260, so on 36ct, this would finish approx 9-1/2 x 14-1/2... plenty big enough to learn from!!!

The teddy bear is so antique, beautiful and classic. The multiplication table is so 'old school'... wouldn't this be neat in an elegant guest room as well? So unique, I couldn't pass this by! Offered as a chart, beautifully presented in color.



Cardinal Points by Long Dog Samplers for The Gentle Art -- click to see more Cardinal Points by Long Dog Samplers for The Gentle Art
Long Dog Samplers created this piece using Gentle Art Sampler Threads -- kind of as a promo piece for Nancy at The Gentle Art. The verse reads: The Gentle Art of a Needlewoman lies embodied in her work.

Super colorful and very pretty, I like all the small repeating motifs everywhere -- and all the balance in the border. Coded for 24 different colors of Sampler Threads over-dyed floss, this finishes approx 12-1/2 inches square and the pic on the front of the chart was worked on good old 18ct AIDA! So choose any fabric you like and stitch away!!!

Round Tool Towers By Greg's Turn - click for more
Round Tool Towers By Greg's Turn
Kind of like a Scissor Block -- only round! We have a new gadget that is designed to carefully hold your scissors, some needles, maybe a laying tool or seam ripper, and even a small ruler or chart. Wayne-The-Wood-Guy has a son, Greg. This is by *Greg's Turn.* It's Greg's turn to turn wood into cool gadgets for us like Wayne has for years!

This little guy measures approx 2-1/4 inches in diameter and stands 3-1/4 inches high. It features a felted bottom and 4 compartments, Two that are lined with felt in the bottoms that are about 2-1/4 inches deep. Store your scissors or rippers or laying tools in those holes. The bottom is soft and padded so tips are protected. The third, smaller hole has a magnet in the bottom -- that's for needles. The magnet keeps them in place in case your tower tips over. It is about 1-3/4 inches deep.

The slit is there for a small ruler or chart -- it is 3/4 of an inch deep. (I was absolutely NOT going to tell you that my mind sees a little face here! I see two eyes, a little nose and a mouth! But the little mouth is crooked because Greg has to make the slit in the direction of the wood grains so that they don't split! So I have all these little people looking at me, and they are so cute! Isn't that dumb?!) So, you have this little friend... all of them are different colors because they are made of different woods, and their little mouths are just every-which-way... and they are so FUNCTIONAL and HANDY! I wonder what they are saying....

Silver Wire Neck Rosette and Rosette Earrings
Oh a Little Something for Our FLAX!
We have a local artist in Tulsa that makes pretty aluminum jewelry -- and we love it with our FLAX! You'll see it in a lot of our pics.

Very lightweight rosettes to fit onto a 'collar' and matching earrings... its very fun to wear and looks good with every kind of FLAX we have.

Neither the daisies or roses weigh anything, and do not tarnish. They look like sterling and do not discolor!
Silver Wire Neck Rosette and Rosette Earrings
Rosettes for your neck are larger -- 1-3/4-ish inches, earrings are 1-1/4-ish inches.
Daisies run 4-ish inches, and earrings 2-inches. That sounds big, but really not because they are so light and airy.

Alice in Wonderland from Brooke's Books
This is a nice start to what hopefully will be a cute set of Alice in Wonderland characters. Just three available right now (? on any more?)... we have Alice, The White Rabbit and The Mad Hatter.

All offered in chart format, they measure 70 stitches high and approx 100-ish stitches wide, and are suggested on a denim blue or medium gray fabric. All three can be joined together because of that cool black, white and purple checkerboard bottom with the green grass! Just cute as can be, these are full of Brooke's charm -- and each one uses a TON of different DMC colors!
