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 and Grateful Hands
- Tis a Melody is a set of three 50 x 60-ish designs - each finishing approx 3-1/2 x 4 on 30ct. You can see them finished into a pin cushion, scissor pouch and needle book... and then all tucked into compartments of a little wooden display drawer. (Hang that on the wall, or perch it on a shelf!) *In my heart there rings a melody... tis a melody of love.* Such a pretty set of designs... they are charming together, and the little drawer (you can find them at Hobby Lobby) is such a fun way to show them off. Stitched on 30ct Cocoa linen with hand-dyed flosses.
- Grateful Hands - *These letters which you now behold, were stitched with grateful hands. When many years away have rolled, the love sewed in shall stand.* Stephanie stitched this on 36ct to fit the top of her 8 x 10 Crown Box. ($160 Special Order, several finishes available) There is a coordinating needlebook pattern as well... both are stitched with DMC 926, and hand-dyed flosses of Oilcloth, Dried Thyme, Cidermill Brown, Woodrose, Lambswool, Barrel Cactus and 12 Grain. The letters all look like they are Rice Stitches... but they are just regular crosses! VERY pretty!
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!
Lone Elm Lane Presents Hand Made Wooden Boxes to Compliment Their Designs!
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.

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...
- Sweet Fragrance -- Cute little needlecase stores inside the little drawer, the matching design fits the box front. BUT... you can always skip the box if need be and just stitch the design!
- Hopes and Dreams Sampler -- *I plant my seeds of hopes and dreams then water them with prayers.* Coded for hand-dyed flosses.
Fall Flowers & Black Iron Clamping Pin Box
- Fall Flowers is the small chart of a floral urn that fits into the top of this box. There is a matching small fob pattern included as well.
- Black Iron Clamping Pin Box -- We already have this in "Wooly White' finish -- With Thy Needle has used it -- now here it is in Black Iron!
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.
- Swan Lake finishes approx 8 x 4 on 32ct Gunmetal Linen. LOVE the brilliant greens against the dark metal gray background. She says this pic is in the style of Rufus Porter -- a famous muralist all around the New England region between 1825 and 1845.
- Ivy's Sampler finishes approx 5-1/2 x 7-1/2 on 32ct linen... hand-dyed flosses... I think this is a birth sampler!
- Sweet Bird -- In reading... this is one lucky bird! *Ever green, ever clear, no sorrow and no winter!* Hand-dyed flosses, this finishes approx 7-1/2 x 6.
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!)
Coded for DMC and hand-dyed flosses, this finishes approx 6 x 8 on 32ct linen. It can be finished any number of ways, but is shown mounted into the top of one of Lone Elm's 8 x 10 Crown boxes. They suggest either Brick Red, Union Blue or Timber Brown. A pretty patriotic piece, I like all the elements -- the soldier, the quilt motifs and flag, eagle and house. There is a lot of charm in this!
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!'
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!
Other designers are featuring Lone Elm Boxes, too!
Autumn Posey from Plum Street Samplers
This is a pretty piece reminiscent of Crewel Embroidery patterns. You'll need to choose a 36ct linen to work this on if you want to fit it into the top of a Lone Elm Lane 6-inch sewing box. (You might have that box already; if you are on the Blackbird Sewing Box Automatic ship, your box is black.)
Anyway, this is mounted into the top of a Robin's Egg Blue box -- but Lone Elm has a burnt red colored box that would be KILLER for the colors in this piece. (Changing the light rik-rak trim to a darker color as well would be a personal choice of mine!) Anyway, a pretty design, very traditional and primitive... it is coded for DMC or Weeks overdyed flosses. Talk to us about color choices on these boxes!
A Full Heart, part 1 of 2014 Shepherd's Fold
Shepherds Bush has sent the first design in their new 6-part Fold Series!!! A Full Heart is a charming pastoral scene complete with the sunny sky, brick red farmhouse, a blooming garden, busy beehives, and a flock of fluffy sheep grazing on the hillsides. Finishing a circular 7 x 7 on lovely new 32ct hand-dyed Stone Steps Linen, the fabric is very nice -- sturdy, tightly woven and soft -- but not limp!
You'll be stitching with solid and hand-dyed silks from Au Ver a Soie, Thread Gatherer and Gloriana in luscious greens mauves and creams. Tina has added several smatterings of specialty stitches here and there -- all just to add bits of texture and interest. You can see some in the sheep and the grassy areas. There are precious bitty buttons in here as well... and everything can grace the top of a Lone Elm Lane Shepherd's Plum Sewing Box... or it can be
*The Fold's* first design... if you choose to 'box-top' this... you will create a storage place for the other 5 pieces that promise to be needlework smalls of cushions, cases and fobs!
A Full Heart is offered as a kit of chart, linen, silks and embellishments. Box or Mat for finishing is available separately. We have an auto-ship for the remaining kits in this series... and can send the box or mat anytime you wish!
Gifts of the Spirit, Love One Another, Oh Glorious Day and Spring Angel
Lone Elm has 4 new leaflets with a bit brighter color than her first set of designs. Stitched on various counts of fabric, all four are shown mounted in the tops her 8-inch wooden Shaker boxes. Stitched on various counts of hand-dyed fabrics -- if you choose not to finish onto the box-tops -- you can choose any other counts you want!
I like Love One Another: *Love One Another -- Each different, yet each created by the hand of The Master, Therefore... Love One Another...*
Because the design is circular, the verse just goes round and round the box top! All four new designs are offered in individual leaflets.
Can you see her in the clouds and on the ground? A wispy, wintery scene of a quiet house and that cool evergreen
tree that looks like a coverlet! I always tried to make those snow angels and not leave behind the tracks! (never figured it
128 Stitches round, this finishes approx 7- 1/8 inches round on 36ct linen. It fits into the top of an 8-inch hand-made Shaker Box by Lone Elm. Coded for DMC or Gentle Art flosses, it's such a pretty design. The angel all around reminds me of a snow globe. Offered as a leaflet.
Another design featuring the same verse as Holy Holy, and a companion angel to Snow Angel. *And He shall give his angels charge over thee to keep they in all of thy ways.*
This finishes approx 7-1/8 inches round on 36ct linen. It is worked in only two overdyeds -- Gentle Art's Burlap and Lexington Green -- it'll be stunning of several of Stephanie's boxes.
Just a pretty floral piece, personalize it with your family name on the pot near the bottom. On 32ct Copper Penny Linen, this finishes approx 10-1/2 x 12-3/8 inches. 11 Different shades of DMC and overdyeds. It is shown in Lone Elm's *Linen* cabinet -- a definite investment!
Cabinet info: Thanksgiving Sampler is framed in the door of the wooden cabinet, using turn buckles so that it can be switched with seasonal patterns. Cabinet size is 17 inches wide x 24-1/2 inches tall x 6-1/2 inches deep. It has two drawers on the bottom and two adjustable shelves inside. Door opening is 12 x 14, and it is painted and distressed. (Cabinet price is shocking!)
*The Earth is filled with His Glory. Give thanks unto the Lord for these cats & birds & flowers & bees.* Make this a Christmas-feeling piece by following the color recommendations, or change the Cayenne thread color to Cadet in the wording.
Stitched with an assortment of hand-dyeds and DMC, this finishes approx 14-1/2 inches square. It'll need to be worked on 32ct to fit the cabinet opening... but would be lovely framed as well. (Again, that cabinet price is shocking!)
A very simple design with really simple color application -- this is lovely! Stitched on 32ct Copper Penny in Weeks and Gentle Art
hand-dyeds, this finishes approx 7-3/8 inches round.
The featured box is the 8-inch Wooly White. There is a lot of variation on the hand-dyed colors -- Stephanie is using more than one color of the blue, for instance, to achieve that look. Very Pretty, offered as a leaflet.
