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!

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!

Favorites by Brenda Keyes of The Sampler Company are on the way to us!

Tall Ships by Brenda Keyes -- click to see a larger view! Dwelling Place Sampler by Brenda Keyes -- click to see a larger view!
  • Dwelling Place measures 204 x 205 in stitch count. It features a relaxed and winding floral border that surrounds the grandest of houses! Can you see 2021 stitched in Roman Numerals up on the roof? Kind of looks like a widow's walk!
  • Tall Ships measures 287 x 287. It's full of tiny motifs, a little village, a church, cool ships and even a mermaid. The verse reads: I must go down to the sea again. To the lovely sea and sky, and all I ask if a tall ship and a star to steer her by.
Both are presented as charts. They look good on just about anything you choose... we have some of hers stitched on 28ct Lugana over one - with a half cross - and they are stunning. Buttttt... you choose what you like best to work with - they are coded for DMC floss.

Sea Box by Rovaris of Italy! - click to see more 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.

Antrim's Folly
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!

St Nikolas by Jennie Lane - click to see more Autumn Harvest by Jennie Lane - click to see more 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!

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 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!


We have 16 beautiful designs 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!!!!
Quaker Street from Marjorie Massey - click for more PR5 Style Sampler Primitif from Marjorie Massey - click for more
  • Quaker Street is charming! (says 'Style - Quaker' on the cover) Loads of Quaker motifs, the cute houses, and lots of alphabets in case you forgot one (!). It is stitched in only one thread color of your choice. It measures 298 x 162 - so finishes approx 15 x 9 on 18/36ct. Just delightful - there are cute details everywhere in here - do you see the cat weather vane?
  • Sampler Primitif - (says 'Style - Prairie' on the cover) Love, Patience, Home and Peace are all spelled out on here - busy-ness everywhere! DMC's of 3799, 926, 3768, 924, 646 and 645, it measures 210 x 140 - so 14 x 9 on 32ct.


Circles & Stitches Hand-Made Pin Cushion Kits

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!
