Fresh new offerings
  • Mousecapades! What if mice lived at the North Pole? The answer is Mousecapades! This is going to be a 7-part set of small designs (approx 3 x 3 each) releasing occasionally until October. The first two, 'Mice on Ice' and 'On the Housetop' should give you a really good idea of how cute these are all going to be. Stitched on Smokey Pearl (we like Star Sapphire too), they can be stitched together if you'd rather. 1/4 Of a yard of whatever fabric you like will do nicely. #3/4 Release in June, #5/6 Releases in August, and #7 in October. We're doing an auto-ship on these... so you don't miss a single one!
  • Gathering Honey - Luminous is continuing her fun monochromatic set of pin cushions with her golden colorway - Gathering Honey. Measuring just 76 x 76 stitches, and stitched in one color of hand-dyed thread, Honey joins Berries (red), Clover (green), Acorns (rust) and Snowflakes (blue.) Trimmed with coordinating colors, they are making a really nice set! Quick and easy to stitch.

Stitching Birds from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more Turkey's Thanks from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more
  • Stitching Birds - Something fun to stitch for a button box topper, or needle case, this measures approx 3 x 7 and is worked with both Weeks and DMC flosses. Presented as a leaflet.
  • Turkey's Thanks - No fair eating a stitched turkey! Something festive to display amidst your Fall Pumpkins, he measures just 93 x 74, and might be a little smaller if you leave off the red star motifs along the top.

Fleece on Earth, Catty Cane, and Gathering Snowflakes
Luminous has three new designs that we like... all three are presented as beautifully done charts with fantastic clear pictures on their cover.
  • Fleece on Earth measures 62 x 62 in stitch count, so it'd make a perfect pin cushion for a knitter or someone who tends sheep! Cute as can be, it's charted for DMCs and a few hand-dyeds.
  • Catty-Cane is for a kitty cat lover. It measures 70 x 70 - and coded for DMC and hand-dyeds. This one would be cute with fuzzy thread for the scarf and hat trim, or metallics in the candy cane.
  • Gathering Snowflakes - This is another of Misty's monochromatic seasonal pieces - it companions several others she has so far. Choose ONE hand-dyed color of your choice and stitch away. Count on his one is 76 x 76... so 4-ish inches on 36ct.

Boo Whoo from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more Jingle Jolly Joy from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more Gathering Acorns from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more Stashing
Boo Whoo, Jingle Jolly Joy, Gathering Acorns and Stashing Squirrels...
Luminous Fiberarts has 4 new printed leaflets that we like!
  • Boo Whoo features a retro-inspired pair of friends - BOO and WHOO! Stitched on anything you want, with just black and Weeks Carrot floss, notice the two-color ribbon finishing on the edges. These will make cute pin cushions - 3 x 4 on 18/36ct - or little pokes for the candy dish or pumpkins!
  • Jingle Jolly Joy is shown stitched as one on this front cover, but I fell in love with the individual finishing on the BACK cover. I think they are over one of perf paper... but against that striped background they are charming! I'd even consider 28 Mushroom Lugana over one - you're talking less than 2 x 3!
  • Gathering Acorns - This is the third one of these designs we have - Valentines with Strawberries and St Pats with shamrocks... each is worked with just one color of hand-dyed thread. So, so simple, yet so striking!
  • Stashing Squirrels - Part of a friendship series - I think these two are having a stand-off about that acorn! Great colors, it finishes approx 4 x 7-1/2 on 32.

Gathering Berries from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more Playful Cats from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more A Robin's Discovery from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more Gathering Clover from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more
Gathering Berries, Playful Cats, A Robin's Discovery and Gathering Clover
Here are four small designs by Luminous Fiber Arts.
  • Gathering Berries is worked with one color of hand-dyed thread - choose a red you like. It finishes about 4 x 4 and is garnished with buttons from our botton box.
  • Playful Cats - Finishes approx 4 x 7, the cats are stitched in opposite shades and have little star motifs in their fur! Find some metallic for the fish and maybe some wool thread for the yarn?
  • A Robin's Discovery - A sweet Easter-y cushion - I think that bunny has his eye on that gorgeous egg!
  • Gathering Clover - This is a companion to Gathering Berries. The stitch count is 76H x 76W, and this design also finishes about 4 x 4. Those of you who have clover growing within your lawn will especially appreciate this.

Spring Spring Scamper
Oh my gosh, this is the CUTEST! What a wild ride everyone is enjoying! *It's time for Spring Scamper, the annual race through the tulips to see who is the fastest! The bunny and chick are leaping into the lead, while their friends race to catch up in their carrot-mobile. A chick in a radish plane (that is the best part!) flies overhead towing the race banner while tossing carrots like confetti down on the competitors! What a charming scene!

Presented as a chart, this measures 111 x 266 - so it'll finish approx 7 x 16 on 32ct. Worked with hand-dyeds and lots of DMC, I just love it. You COULD do this on 18ct linen and use #5 Perle Cotton... like the Bent Creek globe kits or the Shepherd's Bush stockings... then finish it into a glorious big couch pillow... it'd measure 12 x 30! (take a ton of thread... but how fun anyway!)
Enjoy several other new designs when you click through!

Midsummer Song from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more Counting is Hard! from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more Counting is Hard and Midsummer Song, Two new designs by Misty Pursel of Luminous Fiber Arts
  • Counting is Hard! Counting should NOT be hard, but honestly, have you ever mis-counted and ripped something out MORE than once? It IS hard! Measuring 68 x 124, Misty has also shown this finished as a drum pin cushion, topped with a velveteen strawberry on the leaflet's back cover. Cute design, coded for DMC... something fun to make for a stitcher friend!
  • Midsummer Song - The cuckoo comes in April and stays the month of May... he's singing a delightful song in the pretty garden! The strawberry vine is cool, the trees are neat, this is just a very cheerful and colorful design! Measures 168 x 236, coded for DMC; Vintage Country Mocha is one of the fabric suggestions.
