Four New Arrivals from Madame Chantilly
The Cross Stitch Journal
This is a 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inch spiral-bound notebook that has 50 pages to list and log 50 of your stitching projects! For those record-keepers of you... keep track of pattern name, designer, starting and ending stitching dates and times, fabric, threads used, and whatever else you want to record.
Some people like to log everything they stitch... but maybe you know somebody who is so scatterbrained, she has no idea what's in the bottom of her bag... and she might really need this book! Could be a gem of a gift... could just record projects done one summer... lots of possibilities!
Three recent releases by Nikyscreations... all finished into pin cushions
Christian Geissinger 1839
from Victorian Rose Needleart
This is an interesting sampler by Victorian Rose Needlearts. Christian was a male stitcher. They don't know much about him, but he did a beautiful job on this 180 years ago! It is charted for and stitched with Gentle Art's Simply Wool thread - which makes your piece look AWESOME! I don't remember the actual colors being this red and pink... so after pulling them, you might be able to choose something to tone down the red or pink if they bother you, but those are the colors on the original piece. The lavish floral border is lovely, and that central urn is stunning... there's an opportunity for a 90 x 90-ish piece by itself.
Coded for the Gentle Art Wools, which follow the same color names as their cottons... this is stitched on Picture This Plus's 32ct Earthen linen. Colors used are: Schoolhouse Red (3), Faded Rose (3), Avocado (4), Cinnamon (3), Walnut, Piney Woods, Oatmeal, Old Red paint, Forest Glade, Summer Shower, Soot and Barn Grey. There are always debates about whether or not you are *supposed to* or *allowed to* change colors on an old sampler... I guess it all depends on how often The Cross Stitch Police visit your house!
New from Market: The Chicken Coop
Liezbeth's Market exclusive... *What happens in the chicken coop stays in the chicken coop.*
A fun little barn full of noisy chickens, we'll never know what's really going on here!!! Coded for DMC, this finishes approx 11 x 12 on 32ct... might be kind of fun to fit that verse on the back of a pin cushion and stitch a chicken or two on the front side!
NOTE: This is a one-day Pop-Up Special! Your cart will not reflect the 20% discount... and it applies only to the Thistles charts we have in stock!
Walkin' On Sunshine
from Luhu Stitches
Isn't this a fun design? It breezed through our doors this week, and just makes me smile! By Cyndy Young of Luhu Stitches, it is worked on a light blue (any pretty blue or yellow would be good...) and finishes just 4 x 6 on 14/28ct. Finish it as a flat hanging or a fun block-shape stand-up.
I am dating myself, but when I was in something like 3rd grade, I had a *Thing Maker*... it was a little cooker thing, and you poured the 'Plasti-Goop' into little metal trays and cooked *Fun Flowers.* That sun reminds me SO MUCH of the flowers that I made in my Thing Maker! (I was so cool when I was 10!) Anyway, cute design, coded for Weeks and DMC... enjoy!
Birds Sampler from Brenda Keyes of The Sampler Company
*The Bird which soars on highest wing builds on the ground her lowly nest, and she that doth most sweetly sing, sings in the shade when all things rest.*
mmm... I'm writing my words for this, but I'm really not sure what that verse is supposed to be telling me! I just like the shapes, the border, and the colors in this!
Measuring 159 x 209, this is charted for DMC floss. That verse is over one... so if by chance you want to change it and write something else in that place... make it go over two if it fits! Colors are 310, 738, 951, 356, 730, 3041, 3371, 680, 924, 3042, 355, 733 and 502. Pretty colors.
The Kitchen and The Florist from Lilli Violette
I think these two scenes are enchanting!
New Arrivals from Chessie & Me
Linda has 5 new charts... I think we have three of them across the page here...
Liberty & Justice For All and Sister Suffragette from Summer House Stitche Workes
Summer House Stitche Workes has a pair of fun patriotic charts celebrating our Women's right to vote! The 19th Amendment was ratified on August 26th, 1920... and here we are 100 years later!
Serrated Utility Scissors
These are pretty nice 4-1/4-inch all-purpose scissors. They feel a little 'heavy' in my hand - very sturdy. The blades feature tiny serrations - like the little ripples on a steak, grapefruit or tomato knife. Those are there to help keep your threads from slipping along the blades when you are cutting... so a smoother, cleaner cut results. You can feel them when you flex the blades! Nice large finger holes, too!
Released at our recent trade show, they named these *Classic Nashville* scissors, for lack of a better name, I guess! So... they have nothing do DO with Nashville, and everything to do with some nice cutting!
Tis a Melody, Grateful Hands and Little Brown Sparrows from Lone Elm Lane
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.
Cute, Novelty Scissors!
We have 10 new patterns of 3-1/2 inch embroidery scissors that are cute and colorful - fun for little cases and fobs. Not real *high* on the cutting quality end of things, (meaning they are not DOVO quality) they are, however, cute and colorful, and perfect for lots of things! Designs are enameled on the handles so they will not rub off or fade, and will maintain their charm! I had actually never seen pineapple and cactus scissors before... feels like we need a stitched flamingo or something for them!
Pictured from left to right are: Owls, Stars, Lady Bugs, Pumpkins (closer to 4"), Yellow Heart, Anchor, Tiny Green (these are 3" rather than 3-1/2), Pineapple, Cactus, and Holly.
Charming Seaside-Themed Designs from Rovaris of Italy - I love them all!
Direct from the Italian Coastline, these are all presented in chart format and are coded for DMC floss. Each one comes with a special embellishment, and most have a cut of lace or ribbon as well. We have a few other charts we picked up... click through to their page to see the rest! Livia and Paola Rovaris are the designers behind all these. They look ALIKE, and it took me 2 years at the show to discover there were TWO of them! One spoke better English than the other for a couple of years... so I remember going into their room and ordering, but then 'she never seemed to remember' when I came back. (Everything becomes clearer when you're all waiting in the breakfast omlet line at the show!)
The Deventer Duo and Sarah Stewart Hardman Samplers
from Needlework Press
Needlework Press has three samplers recharted and printed into 2 new leaflets. Each piece is full of history and Vicki gives you lots of that enchanting information in the charts. The pieces are so beautiful and there is so much detail and information here about each... I can't begin to describe them as well as they deserve!
Three New Animal Crackers from Stacy Nash Primitives
Stacy Nash has this fun series of stand-up animals - called 'Animal Crackers' - and then some little smaller heads of more animals called 'Cracker Crumbs.' These three are all new 'Crackers'... and we think it's fun to have them all organized on our inside page... so you can SEE her entire collection of them. They all come as individual charts... all stitched on various hand-dyed linens with hand-dyed threads... they look even better if you spray them with a little distressing spray or coffee!
Squirrels of Sumatra (Big) and Out There (Little!) from Ink Circles
Kathy Barrick's New Stockings!
DO NOT use these for Christmas decorations... rather... make them and hang them on doors or on skinny little strange walls or tuck them into narrow nook areas. Pick an cool area that is as quirky as these are! They are neat pieces of artwork... don't hide them away till Christmas!
Pumpkinheads - Boris and Natasha! from Val's Stuff
A pair of Pumpkin Pincushions! Boris stands 5-inches tall with his leaves and stem, and Natasha stands almost 6 inches because of her spool. A fun way to use all sorts of Halloween-colored fabrics - make a stitched pumpkin patch! Val's Stuff has a kit to make these little guys. You do MINIMAL stitching with black and white floss on 30ct Weeks dye Works Pumpkin Linen (or something cute you like and have!)
She provides the finishing instructions to gather your fabric at the top and bottom... roll the felt for stems, cut out felt leaves, glue or stitch on the eyes, stuff, and perch Natasha on the black painted spool stand! You can add plastic pellets inside these if you want a little weight to them. The kit comes with charts, painted spool, clay and button eyes, sunflower pin, pipe cleaner, twine, and felts for the stems and leaves. You'll need a little wad of polyfil, maybe the plastic pellets for weight, and some glue. TOO CUTE!
Like a Butterfly Music Sewing Set
from Mani Di Donna
This is a charming stitched music box BOX by Simona! Your scissor case and fob match the tiny round box - which has a music box mechanism inside! Want to see it work? Lift off the tufted (Weeks Dye Works Houndstooth Wool) top, to find a stitched inside base - about an inch down. The rest of the box is holding a hidden music box... but the little crank is poking through a hole you left on the backside of the round!
So unique! We're getting all the pieces and parts she is offering - pins, music box movement, fob beads and case handle... $60.00. 30ct Weeks Linen, flosses, wool and ball trims are all offered separately.
Bee Our Guest from Noteworthy Needle
Oh My Gosh, this is the ULTIMATE in being welcomed into a *HOME OF A STITCHER!* Noteworthy Needle has a cute little room sign - an information token - to let your guests know your Wi-fi password!
I love her network name in her promo pic - HIVE. The, the password - 14ct Aida! Only Janice could imagine this... and it's pretty cute! This is a must!
New Designs from Samplers Not Forgotten
from Long Dog Samplers
By Long Dog Samplers, the shop girls found this in our book racks and we realized that it missed the Long Dog web page! *Home is where your story begins.*
This little baby measures 205 x 277 - so approx 13 x 17 on 32ct. Coded for DMC or Gentle Art Sampler Threads, it has quite a prominent border of stars and angles. Colors featured are Raven, Moonlight Path, Wood Rose, Sable, Pink Azalea, Cherry Bark, Barn Grey, Sugar Plum, Cidermill Brown, Antique Rose, Cornhusk, Tropical Ocean and Buttermilk.
Miss Lucy Calcutt 1826
from Just Stitching Along
By Just Stitching Along, Lucy did a sampler in 1825 at age 8 (shown on our Samplers page) and this one the next year at age 9!
12-Page full color chart format, coded for silks or DMC cotton, it has 28 colors and measures 281 x 380 in stitch count.
Miss Lucy Calcutt 1825
from Just Stitching Along
This is a STUNNING reproduction of a sampler stitched in 1825. Finishing approx 15 x 22 on 36ct, the chart is coded for DMC or silk threads. The colors in this are beautiful!!!! Rich reds and greens, the border is pretty and balanced.
All the interior pots and vines are organized and all lined up neatly. The red house anchors everything down at the bottom... and notice how those motifs are centered above it?
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?
The Double Zippy Pouch
We are in love with this new size of plastic zipper pouch. It measures 9 x 13-1/2 and features two zippered compartments.
The main side fits a standard Cross Stitch leaflet, while the smaller compartment that measures 5 inches high fits the smaller card designs.
Separate spaces for patterns, fabrics, threads or scissors... we think it's a great development!!!!
Harbor Haven - The Complete Village from By the Bay Needleart
Donna Bayliss' 12-part Harbor Haven is FINISHED - and we have all the parts! Stitch just one or two sections - joined or singly for a bitty village - or do the whole thing, it's charming! Finishing 5 x 42 on 32ct, changing fabric size will really give you finished size options. The single scenes are only 3-1/2 x 5. Charted for DMC floss, there are no special stitches in here... but she says you can add anything you want... and sub hand-dyeds if you have something you want to use.
Our *complete sets* also contain Donna's BONUS design Soul Food for the Needlesmith - as a FREEBIE for getting the entire set of charts. It finishes approx 7 x 7 on 32ct, and can be purchased separately from the Harbor Haven Set of charts.
Merry Mugs from Rachel's of Greenfield
Rachels of Greenfield - (our little felt ornament kit lady) has a new set of 6 ornaments ready! Presented in complete kit format, each opens at the top for candy-cane or gift-card storage! A mug of steaming coffee, creamy hot chocolate or spicy tea... those treats warm your soul like these little guys can!
Kit includes the wool felt, floss, gold hanging strings, patterns and instructions to make the darling little blue, red, green, gold and white mugs! Easy stitching - no sequins!
Presenting Frosty Chillingsworth Mouse... and his little Frosty Snow Cube from Just Nan
Nan's newest Winter Mouse is here!
Frosty Chillingsworth Mouse -- the dapper fellow he is -- will lift your spirits this winter! Stitched on 32ct White Belfast linen with DMC flosses and a hint of opalescent metallic, he has a half-carrot nose and wears a black top hat and sporty red and black plaid scarf. His winter sweater features beaded snowflakes and a fir tree with tiny cardinals stitched over one on the back. (We're talking a very teeny-weeny sweater here, so don't stress about those over-one stitches -- there aren't many of them!) White tipped pins serve as his stick arms with mittens, and his hat has caught a snowflake. Included are 2 colors of beads, silver tail, Nan's signature mouse-button-base, snowflake sequin and pin arms. (Nan says you can change the color of those mittens with a marker!) Cute as can be... he finishes a mere 1-1/2-ish of an inch! Presented as a chart with embellishments.
Frosty Snow Cube -- The perch for Mr Chillingsworth Mouse! Each side of this 2-inch stitched cube features a large beaded snowflake surrounded by tiny fir trees topped with red birds. More fir trees and flakes cover the top, too. The cube is wrapped with a cozy red and black scarf -- to match Mr Frosty C, and snowflake sequins garnish the corners. The third Winter cube -- this joins Pink Ice and Pansy Ice Cubes. Stitched on 32ct Raw Belfast, and the same metallic as Frosty C (you used it in Juliet the Bride Mouse as well), the chart comes with silver crystal beads, flake sequins and lots of Nan's great instructions. Perch a mouse on top of your cube, or find a little brush tree at a craft shop -- (Nan doesn't own a tree lot, so could not include a tree with your chart!)
Frosty Chillingsworth Chart and Fabric is included in our Just Nan Ornament Auto-Ship if you are on that program. (The auto-ship comes with the linen cut.) The Frosty Snow Cube is not included on the auto-ship -- so please let us know if you want that added to your shipment.
Adjust Your Sails
from Little Dove Designs
Life isn't about waiting for the winds to change... it's about learning to adjust your sails. Measuring 117 x 177 - so it finishes approx 7 x 11 on 32ct - this is stitched with 9 regular solid colors of DMC floss, and one hand-dyed for all the water and waves.
The motifs in here are cute - all the little whales and the perky sailboats - it is stitched on any gray fabric so the whites of the sails will show up. (Not enough stitching time to do the whole thing? I see three different sections in here... maybe adjust your sails and choose just one or two? But how can you decide because they're all neat!)
from Little Dove Designs
This is a fun design that measures 53 x 253 in stitch count. (about 3 x 16 on 32ct.) Worked with 16 regular shades of DMC floss, you can split up the different areas of this and do them individually or join the whole piece as shown.
Lots of opportunity to add hand-dyed flosses if you want or some cute clay buttons and what-nots... the chart is super-huge, colored and very easy to read.
Black Cat Hollow - All Three Parts! from Barbara Ana
This is a whole village scene complete with pumpkin vine border, little haunted houses, black cats, and witches with big behinds!!!! (better them, than me!) Cute as can be, it is full of stars and moons, lots of Autumn vegetation and witches and bats everywhere. Originally released in three separate charts, we have all of them together, so you can have the set at one time rather than chasing down all the parts.
*Double double toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble.* Measuring 151 in stitch count, this will finish approx 11 x 11 on 28ct, and is charted for just 9 shades of regular DMC floss! Go for it, and add hand-dyeds, metallics for the house windows and bats... wool thread for the cats??
New and SMALL-ISH designs from Rosewood Manor
We're always after Karen of Rosewood Manor to design us some smaller designs to complement her many large ones. We have 11 of the results!!!!! 1/2 Sized charts - clear and pretty color pics on the covers, nice and large charts on the inside.
Each of these comes with its hand-dyed floss from South Africa (!) or bunches of little hand-dyed buttons from Just Another Button Company (from IL!). Most are done on Antique White fabric... lots of fabric options with that! Make sure to click the pic to go to the inside Rosewood Manor page to see the other 7 designs!
Santa Claus Lane from Praiseworthy Stitches
Praiseworthy Stitches has done a half-sized Christmas Scene, and finished it into a drum-shape just for fun! Measuring less than half the size of their huge Christmas Scenes, this finishes 14-1/2 x 4-1/2 on 32ct. You can frame it, or roll it into the round shape and make a 4 x 6 giant pin cushion! Stitched with hand-dyed or DMC flosses, it is super-cute! Santa is flying through they sky behind his team of reindeer... so those little ones down below better get home to bed soon!!!! He's on his way!
Presented as the chart, the JABCO button embellishments are offered separately -- HOWEVER -- it is confusing. The button pack contains the snowmen, moon and star for the framed piece as well as the Santa face button you see on top of the drum. THEN, when they sent us the model, they had a set of JABCO Pin Mini's stuck in the top of the drum -- and they are a miniature matching Santa face, peppermint and holly leaf. You'll need the *pins* only if you finish this into the drum shape. For a limited time, we have a few finishing kits that contain their red finishing fabric, cord, finishing buttons and stiffener.
Well, these are the COOLEST little lighted needle threaders! A little 1-3/4 x 1/2 inch Needle Beetle fits right into your hand... it features a retractable wire needle threader that lights up!
See the colored dot? Push it forward... out comes the wire, on comes the light for easy threading. There is even a tiny slit on the right side with
a recessed blade to cut thread! There is a lanyard hole to attach your beetle to something.
Because the threader retracts, it is protected from damage. There are finger grips on that little button and the bottom of the beetle... and the battery lasts for up to 3000 threadings!!!!! Absolutely the cutest things... and super-functional!!! Available in yellow, green or red... because beetles come in all those colors!
NOTE: These little guys are 1/2 an inch thick so have to be postmarked at 'package rate.' We're happy to send you just one Beetle, but suggest you piggy back her with something else to save on shipping costs.
Yes, there's even MORE!
