Holly Jolly Christmas and Gingerbread Cottage
Holly Jolly Christmas and Gingerbread Cottage are two new charts that I think have a lot of promise! The chart covers show only a computerized image of the colored chart, so you need to train your eye to imagine hand-dyed threads in them, beads, buttons, metallics, maybe even some specialty stitches for texture.
  • Holly Jolly Christmas measures 145 x 148 - so about 10 x 10 on 14/28. You can split apart the sections and make single ornaments or pin cushions. EVERYWHERE I see opportunities for seed beads in eyes, berries, and snowflakes. Metallics would be fun in eyes, flags, the ornaments and Santa's sleigh. Little clay carrot buttons on the snowmen and the peppermints in the nine-patch, and the roof, tree and grass below Santa would be stunning with rows of Satin Stitches... and Rudolph needs a red bead nose!
  • Gingerbread Cottage is fun too. More stitches, beads and buttons... Might be fun to add the family name to the cottage! This measures 79 x 119, so it'll finish about 5 x 8 on 16/32.

Little Dove's Year from Little Dove Designs
Here is a full set of small monthly designs by Little Dove... all presented in one chart... so, it easy on the stitching stash budget! Each month measures 65 x 60 stitches - so about 4 x 4. Stitch them individually and cushion them, or join them together in a vertical or horizontal shape. Each one has the name of the month in it, but not so integral to the design, so leave them out if you want.

Lots of places to add beads and small embellishing buttons and charms. Metallics in October, opalescent in January, furry threads in March... coded for DMC, it calls for 31 different colors. I love the little ducks in May... swimming in all the water that fell in April!

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!)

Christmas Wishes 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.
