Two New Designs from Milady's Needle

    The stitch count is 140 x 154.
  • Ann Emptage 1845 - Ann Emptage, born in 1837, came from a family that had many accomplished stitchers. She may have learned stitching from her mother, or may have learned it at the National School in Birchington, Kent.
    Stitched on 40 count, the design size is 15" x 18."
    The stitch count is 299 x 354. Beautifully charted and packaged!

M Woods 1759 from Milady's Needle - click for more M Woods 1759
This is a reproduction of a charming antique sampler stitched (most likely) in Norfolk Va. (You can see the pic of the original on the back cover of the chart.) A petite 10-3/4 x 8-1/2 in size, it is so colorful and packed full of balanced motifs. Something about it just speaks to me!

Just a few Eyelets, and several inconsistencies in the charts of the motifs and borders, it's not too big and impossible to stitch. Pretty colors as well... it is charted for silks or DMCs. Offered as a chart.

Sampler Pendants from Milady's Needle - click for more Sampler Pendants
Milady's Needle has TWO sets of stitched pendant designs -- 8 different designs in all. Set #1 has the log cabin down in the lower right corner of the picture. Stitched with Gentle Art Sampler Threads on 36ct Pecan Butter Lakeside Linen, each design is 47 x 47 stitches, and you'll be doing them over one thread to fit into the EXQUISITE glass and silver foil pendant frame. The frames actually open and close, but Gloria suggests a dab of glue, so your needlework doesn't fall out and get lost! Set #2 has the two friends facing each other in that bottom right-hand position. THIS set is also worked on the 36ct Pecan Butter Lakeside Linen... but they are stitched with Gloriana Luminescence thread. Ultra thin, with a beautiful twist, this is STUNNING thread!

Each set of 4 designs is offered in charted form, with cut of linen and enough threads to stitch all 4 designs. There is only one pendant in each package -- so we have those available separately -- if you want more of them. These are such pretty little works of stitched art. That glass frame really sets these off nicely! Take a peek at the other two sets of these previously released... we still have those, as well.

Yuletide Hornbook from Milady's Needle - click for more Yuletide Hornbook
This is a set of ornament designs that are stitched on 40ct linen, then mounted onto a 2-5/8 x 2-5/8 wooden hornbook shape. Even though the package shows each design stitched twice, one on white and one on navy... there are only 2 pieces of fabric included -- not 4, and only 1 hornbook form.

It does include the red and white silks to get you going... and we do offer those little wood pieces... so life is good! Cute designs, very cute finishing idea!

Milady's Quaker Pendants from Milady's Needle - click for more Milady's Quaker Pendants
Milady's Needle has 8 new teeny-weeny Quaker-inspired designs that are stitched over one thread on 36ct, and mounted into the *most charming* tiny glass pendant cases!!! Offered as complete kits, you get enough 36ct Luna Linen by Lakeside AND enough Vicki Clayton hand-dyed silk to stitch ALL FOUR designs in each set.

The package comes with one set of pendant hardware, but we have extras available individually. Gloria showed us how the little cases open so you can switch out the needlework... but you might want extra pendant pieces anyhow, so that the closure doesn't get loose over time, and you aren't handling your stitching too much.

Anyway, lovely, shiny, clear and clean silver... some pendants you've seen in this style are a primitive tin... these are silver. The square one measures 1-1/2 inches, while the rectangular size is 3/4 x 2. Not too large to wear as a piece of jewelry! Complete kits contain the charts, linen, one pendant, silks and assembly instructions. VERY NICE!

A Schoolroom Primer from Milady's Needle - click for more A Schoolroom Primer
This is SO CUTE! It's a 2-7/8 x 4-3/8 inch sampler stitched on 40ct vintage Buttercream Lakeside Linen, using Rainbow Gallery's Splendor Silk! Deep Navy, Burgandy, Browns and Butterscotch, the sampler is small and simple, quick to stitch. Once it's finished, simply mount to one side of the wooden hornbook paddle that is included in the complete kit.

Then, Gloria has included the lesson for the school day... the alphabet and numerals that you need to learn. She has included these on parchment paper, and printed them in four different fonts, so you can choose the one you like best. It mounts to the reverse side of the 4-3/4 x 4-3/4 hornbook. What a neat piece to have in your needlework display!!! Offered as the complete kit of chart, linen, silks, wooden hornbook, paper lesson, and finishing instructions.

Sampler Bands Rule from Milady's Needle -- click to see more
Sampler Bands Rule
As promised... here are the 4 bands featured in Beauty From My Needle, charted to fit 12-inch Lucite rulers! Just like the rest of ML's rulers, these are just as charming. Each is stitched on 40ct linen to fit the insets. Pattern includes the assembly instructions for these awesome and practical treats!

Everyone needs a ruler, every desk needs a ruler... so if you're a stitcher, your desk needs a stitched ruler! And... you could hang the sampler on the wall beside your desk!
