We present Lone Elm Lane Designs Early Wooden Wares and Designs -- Charming, traditional designs -- most that finish round to fit some very special hand-made boxes -- or rectangular to fit lovely cabinets or frames. The charts are all offered in leaflet format with different pictures of the finished project on both the front and back covers.
The featured boxes are Lone Elm's own handmade creations! VERY heavy and nicely done each box is hand-pieced and assembled... beautifully painted in one of four different colors and then distressed. The lids are 'reversible' in that they are recessed to fit different types of hand work. One of the sides is perfect for cross stitch or quilting... the other is deeper for hooked rugs. Currently the four box colors (some work for more than one design) are Wooly White, Aged Pewter, Robin's Egg and Black Iron. Boxes are offered in 6, 8 and 12-inch sizes.
Tis a Melody, Grateful Hands and Little Brown Sparrows
Mini-Shaker Pin Cushion Rounds
Lone Elm Lane has introduced empty rounds to house pin-cushions! Measuring 4 inches in diameter and approx 1-1/4 inches high, they are ready to house your puffy little 'hill' of needlework!
Offered in 6 colors so far (My pic accidentally has two of the red in it, and not Bittersweet, which is a bit more on the golden rust side.) They are the same finish and quality as Stephanie's larger boxes.
Also brand new are three leaflets with designs for her shaker boxes... take a peek!

In Thy Meadow
Stephanie has been inspired by the deer and fawns in her yard... so this box topper round is the result!
Finishing approx 8 inches round, it is coded for DMC or Gentle Art Sampler Thread. Designed to fit Stephanie's boxes.
Lone Elm Lane has an awesome new box -- a Pipe Box -- available in Caramel and Aged Pewter right now. Measuring 14-1/4 tall, 3-3/4 deep and 5-1/4 in depth, it features a design area of 4 x 7 and a little bottom drawer that is 4 x 2! Stephanie has two designs to fit them...
Fall Flowers & Black Iron Clamping Pin Box
Swan Lake, Ivy's Sampler & Sweet Bird
Lone Elm Lane's newest designs -- use them atop their boxes, or on your pillows and in frames! Presented as single charts, Stephanie has new charting software, and these are beautifully printed as full color charts.
This is a fun design -- all red, aged green and black -- in that yummy 'ceramic' bowl! On 28ct linen, this finishes approx 6 x 8-1/2, and calls for Dried Thyme, Tin Bucket, Onyx, Ruby Slipper, Aged Pewter and Hickory Sticks hand-dyed flosses.
Presented in a leaflet, it is featured in one of Lone Elm Lane's newest box styles -- The Cabin Box -- which features a divided tray inside.
Lone Elm Lane has a cute new pin cushion pattern that finishes just under 3-1/2 inches in size. Just 6 colors of hand-dyeds on a bit of neutral 16 aida or 32ct linen...it's just a nice seasonal something to have in your growing bowl of stitched lovelys.
NOW... check out her new Sewing Clamp Box in the pic! That is a new finishing piece, patterned after antique clamp boxes. The top has a 1-inch deep recessed area to frame your needlework. It's really a petite 4 x 4 x 4 box -- complete with a little pulling out drawer (can you see the knob down there in the pic?) THEN, the whole thing clamps to the edge of a table with a cool screwing pole on the bottom -- SUPER CHARMING!
Our first shipment of the boxes came in Stephanie's Vintage Dove finish. NOW, to muddy the waters... she'll make that awesome box in ANY of her 12 colors! (So those will be special order, 'cause I can't keep some of them all -- all the time! The 8-ish week wait will be worth it for you though, and you'll have to type your color choice into the comments box as you finish up your order if you want something other than the vintage Dove!)
New Sewing Clamp Box
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!!!!!
Several New Arrivals from Lone Elm Lane -- Here are three of the five new!
Primitive designs offered as small charts, Stephanie Elmer has lots of new offerings for her awesome line of handmade *Early Wooden Wares* boxes and pin cushions.
Oh my gosh, these are SO CUTE!!!!! A pair of small designs offered as charts, they are both (unfortunately because it's so hard to see!) worked on 32ct Black Belfast Linen with DMCs and hand-dyed flosses. Each is shown in the top of one of Lone Elm Lane's newest Candle Box. A fun sliding-lid container, there is a divider inside so you have smaller compartments to organize your stitching! Hallowed Ground -- 'One night a year with full moon bright, we arive from here and cause a fright!'
The Candle Box
Wow... this is a new style of box --handmade in Lone Elm Lane's woodshop -- that has several charming features to it. Inspired by antique candle boxes that held cigars and documents, it measures approx 10 x 6 x 4 in size, features a chamfered -- a slide-off lid -- with a recess opening for needlework, and a divider inside to give you 4 small compartments.
Stitch one of the Halloween pieces for this or Love Birds. Offered in Vintage Slate, it is a finish that is washed on to highlight the clear pine grain, then lightly antiqued and sealed with cabinet grade protective matte top coat.
The Birds & the Bees
A pretty clay pot filled with simple blossoms, look at how the alphabet begins at the base of the pot and travels clockwise... but is always right-side-up!
Choose either a round or square box for this... offered in leaflet format. Call us if you'd like to consult about a round or square box for this!
In The Moonlight|
This is real cute when it's stitched. The photo on the leaflet cover is very yellow... I am hoping we can correct that coloration in our picture for you. The grays, teals, browns and winter whites in here are soft and restful together... choose a rectangular box... or pretty gray mat.
Doesn't it look like a real scene until you realize its a snowman skating??? Only... the leaflet asks *What happens in the Moonlight when we sleep?*
Finishes approx 5 x 7 on 28ct.
In the Garden
This is an elegant study of grays, cream and black. Stitched on a dark gray linen, there are actually 10 different colors in this, but my eye sees about three!
Shown inside the top of Lone Elm Lane's 8 x 10 rectangular Crown Box in the Antiqued Black Iron finish... consider a distressed charcoal black frame for this as well.
So simple, it's kind of elegant. *In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth.*
Well, this is an eye-catching box-top! By Lone Elm's Stephanie, we have a very haunted house, complete with crumbling roof and overgrown landscaping. Choose any mangy darker 32 or 36ct linen to make this fit into the top of one of Lone Elm's Black Shaker Boxes. There is an invasive vine traveling everywhere, and even an empty grave!!! I personally love the little skeleton dog!!!
Anyway, charted for Weeks and DMC flosses, it's just a really fun design with some unique elements! Offered as the leaflet, we also have these luscious boxes -- which are a design favorite of Blackbird and Shepherd's Bush!
Lone Elm's Square Box -- 8 x 8 x 4
A Vintage Slate light blue-ish grey finish has been painted onto Lone Elm's hardwood, hand-made box. They have used an antique moulding style, cut it and constructed each box, applied their distressed *Vintage and Velvet* finish, sanded everything till it's butter-smooth... and even added a divided tool tray into this style!
Stephanie has a leaflet design -- True Friends -- that fits the top of the box... but since the recessed opening in the lid is 1/4 an inch deep and 6 inches square... I imagine you may also have something really special already in your stash to fit this!!!
It sounds really dumb... but this box SMELLS WONDERFUL inside! Such a clean, fresh, yummy wood flavor... I think it just adds to the charm, and lets me know that this didn't come off a 'slow boat from China!' It's handmade!
