Olde Worlde Santas by Jim Shore

(And I don't 'get it!'... they're all frozen... and I can't tell WHAT area of the country ANY of them come from!!!) They ARE darling... I love the circular borders... and the colors are cheerful!
Offered as complete kits of the paper, flosses, beads and Jim Shore button... our shop models will be on linen... and we might even make up a set that finishes ROUND -- without the corner motifs! Cute snowmen... life seems so odd... my daffodils are blooming in my backyard, but the East Coast had that snowstorm the day we received our promo-sheets about these! In Australia it's 100 degrees... so I guess it just goes to show that you can get these *anytime of the year*... because eventually YOUR winter will come!!!!!

What a delightful collection of simple black-line doodles from Amy Lee Weeks! The people at Mill Hill have converted them to Cross Stitch on 18ct white Aida, and embellished with a few glass beads here and there. Design sizes finishing approx 5 x 7, each is stitched with 99% DMC black floss and accented with simple striking colors in the design borders.
SO DARN CUTE... they are presented as complete kits of the chart, fabric, beads and flosses. Frames are offered separately. These ARE done on aida -- don't get hung up on that -- if you have a swatch of something else white in your stash, use it. The designs are darling, and will WAY overshadow the fabric you stitch them on! I LOVE the one that says *Don't stress me out!*
Amy Lee Weeks Florals
We have four new designs by artist Amy Lee Weeks that have been adapted to cross stitch by Mill Hill.
So simple, yet so full of bold color and quiet advice, each is stitched on 14ct Aida with DMC and almost NO beads!!!!! Framed in black 8 x 8's, these are so clean, fresh, young and new... stitch them for someone young-at-heart in your life!
Amylee Weeks Owls
Oh my Gosh... AREN'T THESE CUTE??!! Mill Hill has licensed a new designer for their line -- Amylee Weeks -- and adapted her original artwork into Cross Stitch! Offering a set of 6 colorful owls -- each delivering a fun and uplifting sentiment -- these are offered as complete kits. Finishing approx 7-3/4 inches square, each is stitched on 14ct Aida in the most lip-puckering colors of Riviera Coral, Gold and Olive.
You just can't help but love the colors and the whimsical flavors of these!! There are 8-inch frames available for them as well... and notice that three say *Faith * Hope * Love*, while the other three say *Be Brave * Be You * Be Happy.* Everything is simple Cross Stitch with a few small bits of bead embellishments (not a lot) and then backstitch. The long backstitches on them give you that relaxed whimsical feel.
