Floral Fantasy Designs by Debbie Mumm for Mill Hill
Mill Hill is releasing 4 new lavish floral designs by Debbie Mumm - adapted to Cross Stitch. Available as Mill Hill kits, each is stitched on either the very pastel Touch of Yellow or Touch of Blue 14ct Aida fabrics using DMC flosses, and then garnished with Mill Hill glass beads.
Very 'Spring-y and Happy,' they are large, and finish almost 8 inches square! The frames in the pictures are available by special order.
Spring Forest Scrapbook from Lindy Stitches and The Blue Flower
This is a collaboration design between Blue Flower Designs and Lindy Stitches. You might remember their Saltwater Scrapbook piece last year... this year's is bursting with the new spring animals in the forest. Presented in two charts (each is available separately, so you will need to order both to get all 9 panels) - Jeannine from Blue Flower has contributed the snail delivering spring blooms, racoons under their umbrellas, a lazy bear, and pair of sleeping foxes. Stephanie from LS did the deer, that awesome grasshopper tipping his hat to the ladybug, the birds, bees and butterflies, and finally those darling hedgehogs.
You can stitch each of these 3 x 3 (61 x 61) pieces individually, or join them together... depends on your finishing talents! Choose a pretty light blue fabric, a fat quarter will do all either framed or singly. All are stitched with various hand-dyeds and coded for DMC as well. I just love the different animals, and all the pretty colors - such a refreshing collection of charm!
Mill Hill Presents Autumn and Halloween 2022!
The New Button & Bead and smaller Autumn Harvest Collections are on the way!
The Autumn Button & Bead Kits are the 5 x 5 inch designs. Worked on 14ct perforated paper, you can easily convert to fabric stitching if you want a different finish. Sunflower Garden features sunny yellow and lavender colors. Potions & Spells should creep you out for Halloween! Autumn Bench is the next installment in the Country Lane collection - we have 6 or 7 other designs to coordinate with this peaceful autumn scene, including a covered bridge and water mill. Broom Parking is a whimsical Halloween scene. Fall Beach is for all you lucky Near-The-Water-People who get to enjoy the beach year round, and Haunted Tower features a wonderful shaded sky with circling bat silouettes! Kits include the chart, flosses, beads, paper, needles and hand-painted Mill Hill ceramic button embellishment.
The Autumn Harvest Collection includes the 3 x 3-ish designs. Batty is a up-side-down bat taking a snooze! Give Thanks makes a great fridge magnet - good seasonal advice! The Eyeball Martini looks interesting... mailbox and apple tree are cute, and that spooky cage looks very dramatic!
The New Spring 2022 Mill Hill Bead Kits are here!
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.
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!
New Samplers by Brenda Keyes of The Sampler Company are on the way to us!
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.
Sea Box from Rovaris
*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!
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!
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!
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!
Cute 'Postcards' from your Travels! from Open Road Abode Needleworks
Open Road Abode's cute little campers go all over the USA! What a fun reminder of the travels that lay ahead of us! This is a fun little collection of campers - all of them finish about 4 x 6 in size. Stitch them in one color - or go through your stash and find some colors you like. They are meant to be cute and quick. Fun to frame with trip pictures, or hang 'em in your camper!
Open Road has a whole collection of National Parks and cute RV designs... you'll see 16 more like these on her page, along with a few larger cabin designs as well. There are 7 offerings that are actually 'postcards' - small charts on postcard sized cardstock. Pictured above are 3 of them... click through to see the rest. Summer IS coming!
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!
Charming New Designs from Madame La Fee
All the way from France, even though her instructions are written in French, you can always read the DMC floss numbers and match them to the symbols! All 4 of these finish about 12 x 12 on 16/32ct fabric... our shop models of some of her other things are generous in size and really lovely.
On the Village scene, you can stitch just that square take-out of the church. The bear on the NOEL piece is about 45 x 45 stitches and the locomotive on there is about 30 x 45. Very do-able as ornaments, her shading is really nice. The Vin de France and Souvenir de Paris charts could be special remembrances from past trips!
Pepperberry's Halloween Lucky 13 - The Halloween Lollipop Series from Pepperberry Designs
We have all 13 charts in this fun set now. All are stitched on weeks Dye Works linens of Chartreuse, Pumpkin, Sky or Peoria Purple, with DMC, Weeks hand-dyeds and a few metallics tossed in. Each finishes about 4 or 5 inches in size on 32ct. The contour shape on the finishing treatment lets you concentrate on the designs without too much extra fabric showing. They've trimmed them all in the same edging... you could change that if you want... and all of them are stuck onto sticks - like little lollipops.
I'm thinking they need to be poked into a big 'ol bowl of candy... but I'm not sure the candy would last to hold them up! A real cute collection... choose just a few favorites if you don't think you can finish them all!
We have 16 beautiful new arrivals by Marjorie Massey.
Even though she's French... we can still read the chart symbols and our familiar DMC color numbers! (Her chart titles are very confusing and numbering is not consistent, so we'll try to do our best labeling them in our mouse-overs and dropdowns!) All are available in chart format, very clear, colored graphs. Remember, you can change colors and fabrics - it's YOUR stitching!!!!
Circles & Stitches Hand-Made Pin Cushion Kits
Oh wow... these are so colorful and fun!!!!! By Local Farm Girl, these are complete kits to construct these darling donut-sized felted wool pin cushions.
Packaged in a little cardboard berry box, you get the wools for the cushion top, base, and circles, needles of various sizes, hand-dyed wool threads for the stitching, two wool covered buttons (with a coordinating/contrasting button on the bottom side), even the printed freezer paper with templates on it, and iron-on stabilizer for those topping circles... AND 3/4 C of crushed walnut shells for filler! (whew!)
Four different colorways, choose between a restful red and gray combo, the vibrant gold and pumpkin with mossy green, the deep purple eggplant with aqua accents, or that yummy lime one with bright pink and a little soft gray!
Serenity Harbor - The Complete Piece from By the Bay Needleart
This charming scene was designed in 2014. Just as Harbor Haven, it was designed as a 12-part stitch-along thing. We have everything together now in one set... so you're good to go.
TONS of information inside about thread colors, fabric choices, but basically, the entire stitch count is 171 x 557 - so a commanding 6 x 20 on 14/28ct. Lots of stitches, this is so pretty when it's finished... several of our ladies have stitched it!
