New Arrivals
  • Black Fantasy - A thread ring holder, sewing roll cushion and a little box, all is stitched on one cut of 30ct Weeks Onyx linen - or a nice dark gunmetal alternative. DMC (3832, 3782 and 932) or silks, the stitching is soft and flowing. Simona includes lots of pictures inside the chart for your finishing aides. She's provided template measurements (in INCHES - not metrics, for us Americans) They show you how to anchor the rings in there (we carry those rings by the way!), and how to make the velvet roll, and wrap the diamond panel around it! A charming little set - not too big, just the right size! We have the chart along with Simona's two tulip waxers, the completed beaded scissor fob in the pic - trimmed with the clay tulip - and the pair of tulip pins you see poking from the cushion!
  • The Welcome Street - Pineapples abound! This design offers lots of parts. You get the main 'street' design - the four buildings. There is a flower pin cushion pictured - blue flowers in the corners, but what you cannot see are the pineapples separating them. The chart comes with 4 golden crystal pins to embellish this little cushion - and highlight those stitched pineapples. There is a needle book, and a little bag to hold a pineapple waxer - which is included in our accessory pack. All of that, along with a beautiful beaded scissor fob trimmed with a pineapple charm! Stitched on Weeks Cocoa linen with Weeks flosses, a lot of fun things to digest in this pattern!
  • The Simple Life - The Farmhouse, barn and sheep in the yard... finishes approx 11 x 6 on Weeks 30ct Cocoa.
  • Liberty Lane Pillow - Finishing just 4 x 5 on 32ct... the words are lovely, but this will be even smaller if you leave those off - or stitch them on the backside for a little surprise to your cushion!
  • Nantucket Lights - I've never been to Nantucket, so i don't know if these three lighthouses exist or not... but they look good 'in stitching!' Just kind of for fun.... it finishes 12 x 5-1/2!

Let it Snow Music Sewing Set from Mani di Donna - click for more Let it Snow Music Sewing Set from Mani di Donna - click for more Let it Snow Music Sewing Set
Simona has designed another darling music box. The three-piece set begins with a scissor case. Included with the chart is a gorgeous beaded fob and pearl beaded handle for the case. Next, there is a stitched needlebook to match the round box.

THEN... you stitch the Santa and sleigh design that wraps into a 3-inch-ish diameter box. The tree on top is made of wool, it is the lid for the box, and it spins around when the music is playing.
Want to see it play?

Inside the box, there is an old-fashioned cranking-handle musical movement (not one of those icky electronic ones!)Stitched on Weeks 32ct Cocoa Linen with DMC flosses, the chart has lots of finishing and assembly photos for all the pieces. So, included with the chart, you get the musical movement and the two beaded decorations for the scissor case.

Sounds of Freedom Pin Cushion Pillows from Mani di Donna - click for more Halloween in the Air from Mani di Donna - click for more Halloween in the Air & Sounds of Freedom Pin Cushion Pillows
Well, we're mixing the seasons and holidays by showing these together, but that's OK. Both charts offer designs that are long and not very high, but they are finished differently from each other.

Think outside your 'pillow' and add the trim and fabric to the Halloween ones if you want - just like shown on the Stars and Stripes designs. These are cute, simple designs that can handle lots of cool metallic, hand-dyed or furry threads - even some beads - to dress them up and make them your own.

The large *Halloween* word measures only 110 x 23 - and most of that height is the ghost, while *Boo* is 25 x 72 - so they are bitty little pin-cushion things! The three patriotics are worked with Weeks hand-dyed flosses and all measure 30-ish by 100-ish. (On 25 over one, that's about 1 x 4 each!!!)

Ventotene from Mani di Donna - click for more
I love this little European-feeling little scene! I think it's supposed to be Venice... but Venice doesn't have lighthouses! But there's a cathedral... but there are hot-air-balloons... and that big ol' crashing wave!

So YOU decide where you want this to be! I think it's just charming! 32ct Morris Blue Weeks linen, and only 9 shades of Weeks hand-dyed flosses, it measures 90 x 53 in stitch count.

Like a Butterfly Music Sewing Set
This is a charming stitched music box BOX by Simona! Your scissor case and fob match the tiny round box - which has a music box mechanism inside! Want to see it work? Lift off the tufted (Weeks Dye Works Houndstooth Wool) top, to find a stitched inside base - about an inch down. The rest of the box is holding a hidden music box... but the little crank is poking through a hole you left on the backside of the round!

So unique! We're getting all the pieces and parts she is offering - pins, music box movement, fob beads and case handle... $60.00. 30ct Weeks Linen, flosses, wool and ball trims are all offered separately.

Summer Time Basket from Mani di Donna - click for more Summer Time Basket
I think this is about a 5-inch square box-tray that features summertime motifs stitched on all 4 sides. Worked on Weeks 32ct Beige linen, it features some mini buttons, and a darling crab and starfish pin set. The scallop trim is included with the pins.

We are offering the chart with pins and trim. Threads and separate linings (our Schnigglet cuts - $6 each - work for this) called for are Weeks Wools in Fawn and Mountain Mist. Choose components as you need them, start with the chart/trim and pins.

Land of Freedom Sewing Box Set from Mani di Donna - click for more Land of Freedom Sewing Box Set
This is a charted design that includes a main -- approx 6 x 8 -- design (shown on a box top), pin cushion, needlebook, scissor fob, and a charming little thread keeper. The theme is Americana, which is funny, because this is an Italian designer! (Just think Columbus, I guess!)

Everything is stitched with Gentle Art Sampler Threads or DMC on 28ct Light Mocha Linen. Along with the chart and its finishing instructions and pictures, you get three small bone rings, a trio of red, white and blue star pins, and a 7 x 14-inch cut of dark teal and cocoa homespun fabric to finish all the smalls. A very cute set!
