Return of the Whales from Chessie & Me Where We Love from Chessie & Me Quaker Star Needfuls from Chessie & Me
A Few New Chessie Releases Coming Home From Market this week!
  • Return of the Whales - Oh we love this... it had been one of our Circle of Friends designs... and now Linda has released it in chart format! Measuring 55 x 125, it uses Weeks flosses of Deep Sea, Dolphin, Grasshoper, Juniper, Kohl, Pelican Gray, Red Rocks, Schneckley and White Lightening. We've gotten calls for this design for YEARS, and here it is!

A few of Linda's fun specialty stitches scattered throughout this... and the traditional verse. Where we love is home - Home that our feet may leave but not our hearts. I like the plain repeating border all around too. Would make an AWESOME new home gift, or wedding gift!

You have to do this on 36ct (whatever color you like - but 36) to fit all the little compartments - it's coded for Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses!

Snowy Owl by Bent Creek -- click to see more
The 2024 Annual Snowglobe Zipper Kit - Snowy Owl from Bent Creek
Here's a little guy with a feathery coat that looks warrrrrmmmmm. Just taking a rest between the falling snowflakes, he's joining his 30+ OTHER annual snowglobes!

Complete kit contains the 20ct linen, chart, needles, snowbeads and #5 Pearl Cottons. As with the rest, he finishes about 5 x 5 and will stitch up in a jiff - like 5 hours. Best made into little block stand-ups so they can be set just about anywhere!

Fleur de Alphabets from JBW Designs - click to see more When Cardinals Appear from JBW Designs - click to see more
Judy Whitman has two pretty new pieces...
  • Fleur de Alphabets - Just stunning! Stitched on a neutral 36ct with just two shades of blue: Morning Glory from Classic Colorworks and DMC 3747. The letters are adapted from antique alphabets and each one has either flowers or leaves within it's shape. The stitch count is 239 x 77 so it finishes about 13 x 4. We think this would be stunning as a lush silk pillow on a guest bed that nobody dares to use! Presented as a chart.
  • When Cardinals Appear - Is based on the beautiful quotation. A companion to last year's Bluebird of Happiness Sampler, this is stitched on 36ct linen with a variety of Weeks and Classic hand-dyed flosses. DMC codings too. Stitch count is 166 x 116. 'When cardinals appear, loved ones are near.'

In the Dale by Cosford Rise Stitchery - click for more The Windflower and the Whale by Cosford Rise Stitchery - click for more The Neptune and the Sailors by Cosford Rise Stitchery - click for more
  • In the Dale Stitch a charming little egg-shaped scene of rabbits running over hills and dale. We American Girls had to have a discussion in the shop about Dales - what are they, how do I use them in a sentence... we know nothing, so can't wait to get to Market and ask all about them! This measures 130 x 162 and is coded for DMC... I wish we could get our hands on that frame... but the pic gives you a great guide for painting your own. Presented as a chart - such a happy picture!
  • Neptune and the Sailors and The Windflower and the Whale - These came in last Fall and we just continue to love the largest main piece in both of them. I stuck them here to just to remind you of how charming they are. Net black floral topping border on the ship, and that whimsical whale on the other!

Jolly Green from Ink Circles - click to see more Sumatran Lace from Ink Circles - click to see more A pair of new designs by Ink Circles
  • Jolly Green - Tracy calls this her Jolly Green Giant Sampler! Presented as a chart, it measures 267 stitches square - and will finish a whopping 15 inches square on 36ct.

  • Sumatran Lace - Inspired by Indonesian fabric prints, here's another fun piece that is done with just one color of hand-dyed thread. Measures 135 stitches square - so 7-1/2 inches on 36ct.

Under The Mistletoe, Main Street, and Witch's Parking from Finally a Farmgirl
Finally A Farmgirl has some pretty cute releases for all year long!
  • Under the Mistletoe - Oh, here's Mr and Mrs Claus celebrating another successful Christmas under the Mistletoe! Measuring only 48 x 70, and stitched with DMC on 32 Nocturne (or any lovely evening-dark color), they finish 3 x 4. What I think is awesome about this design is that it could be a WEDDING OR ANNIVERSARY momento! You could stitch it for Mom and Dad as a Christmas gift and personalize it on the backside. Rainbow Gallery's White Wisper would be awesome in the fur or even the little mouse in Santa's hat! Just love the possibilities with this design!
  • Main Street - Lots of little town and village street scenes these days... and here's another really good one! Stitch count of 306 x 106 - it'll finish a whopping 19 x 7 on 32ct. Long enough to make a drum shape finish. A summer/patriotic theme, it's crisp, colorful, and every shop looks welcoming!
  • Witch's Parking - How about displaying this on your kitchen eating island at Halloween time - and listen to the comments! This little toad is enforcing the parking situation. Measuring 103 x 109, it'll finish about 7 inches on 32ct, and is done with a medley of DMC and varied hand-dyeds. Just for fun!

Witch's Brew from Finally a Farmgirl  - click to see more Santa Claws from Finally a Farmgirl  - click to see more
Witch's Brew and Santa Claws from Finally a Farmgirl
  • Witch's Brew - Another cute 'kitchen sign,' put this by your coffee pot or in your coffee area at the office! Stitched on anything that lets the white cup show up, it uses regular DMC, and measures 100 x 57. Not too big, so fun to stitch up in a hurry!
  • Santa Claws - Here's Matilda the Mouse and Oscar the Cat getting ready for the Big Day. So darn cute, it's hard to see, but there are tiny animals hiding in the gifts, the tree top, and Santa's arms. Finishes about 5 x 7 on 32ct... so smallish.

You see 4 baskets in the pic.. one is stitched with all three new colors, the other three are stitched with just one of the new shades.

Songbird Serenade from Counting Puddles - click to see more
Songbird Serenade
from Counting Puddles

What a pretty pair of songbirds - especially with their songs floating across the piece. Stitched on Touch of Yellow fabric with regular DMC they finish only 6-1.2 inches on 28ct! So... a very petite 5 x 5 on 36ct. Both designs are included in the leaflet.

I wonder if touches of Rainbow Gallery's Petite Treasure Braid metallic would be good on these... I can't tell from the pics but there might be bead embellishments on the flower centers... and I'm thinking BITS of metallic in the musical notes would be pretty!

  • All Manner of Thing - A larger design - presented in full kit format - 'All manner of thing shall be well.' I don't have much information at this point, but probably finishes about 8 x 10... I bet there's silk in here... I bet there are a few precious small buttons and trinkets on here... the sheep are really cute, and the whole scene just LOOKS like all Manner of Things IS good! There are a lot of repeating lines and textures in here... sheep are all 'patterned', the houses feature multiple windows - all perfectly lined up, and they've hidden all sorts of small treasures in the border - a tiny shepherd, sheep, a house, a bird... really fun to discover all of that.
  • Stitching Calms the Soul Bag - This is another small 5 x 7 fabric zipper pouch made of ticking fabric with a linen panel for your stitching. The girls have added that cute decoration - not too much to work up - so that this can be finished and USED or given as a quick gift to a stitcher friend. The complete kit contains the ready-made zip pouch, the chart, needle and threads.

As with most of the rest of them, there is a button packet available separately that we will have.
  • Patriotic Parade - This season's newest Sheep pin cushion Kit, Parade's little sheep companions all the other Christmas, Halloween, Autumn, Spring... little Ewe's all celebrating their holiday or season.

  • A Natural Beauty Hannel 1840 - Theresa bought this antique sampler and reproduced it on 40ct Latte by Fiber on a Whim. Using hand-dyeds or DMC, it measures 274 x 308 It's all 'leafy' rather than 'house-y!'

  • Flag Thief - LOVE all the bold colors in this one! More multiple skeins of threads needed... but that's kind of fun. The glorious house is done in deep reds, the roof shingles in a medley of blue hand-dyeds... two little eagles are hiding in all the busy-ness, and the fox is busy chasing that fast little bunny Flag Thief!

Elegant Flowers Sewing Box from Mani di Donna - click for more The Barn in the Sun Sewing Set from Mani di Donna - click for more Live Simple Sewing Box from Mani di Donna - click for more Memories From Nantucket from Mani di Donna - click for more
Just a few unusual treats from Mani di Donna - Coming from Italy - to Market - to Tulsa!
  • Elegant Flowers Sewing Box - This is a fabric-covered cardboard round box - with a little pull-out drawer. Since we've never seen a box like this, we are taking her class in constructing this 'little curiosity' at Market. Simona is offering this in chart format, and we can't wait to get our hands on it. We've seen those decorative handle rings at Hobby Lobby, so this promises to be very do-able! The top stitching measures about 4 inches in diameter - to give you a size idea for the entire box. Worked on 32ct, coded for DMC. We are including the waxer with the chart.
  • The Barn in the Sun Sewing Set - A cute little quilt-inspired sewing set of thread and pin case, pin mattress, and scissor bag. Stitched on Weeks 32ct Cocoa Linen with DMC, along with the chart, we are including the 2 specialty pins, the beaded scissor fob, the hand-dyed pom-pom trim. Promises to be petite and colorful!
  • Live Simple Sewing Box - Worked on 32ct linen with Weeks hand-dyed flosses, this is trimmed with lining fabric of your choice (from your stash) and Weeks Merlot hand-dyed wool. The accessories included with the chart are the black mourning pins, the tag board behind the stitched sheep, the sheep waxer, and the beaded decorative pin shown in the pic. If you 'patchwork' the wool on the topper inside, you can probably get by with three coordinating schnigglet cuts of our wool... I don't know that yet, because I don't have this in my hands. Just thought it was a cute project!
  • Memories From Nantucket - This charming cushion caught my eye because of the verse. Basically she says that when her sailor-boy takes off for another sea voyage, she's blowing him off and leaving town! It says, I have made up my mind now to be a sailors wife, to have a purse full of money and a very easy life. But when he says goodbye my love, I'm off across the sea! Stitched on 32ct with Weeks flosses, it's trimmed with Lady Dot Chenille. I think it's so much fun when you have something like this that looks normal, but then you read the verse and just laugh!

Home of The Brave Needle Case - click to see more Home of The Brave Beaded Fob from Fern Ridge - click to see more Bohemian Paisley Sewing Case from Fern Ridge - click to see more Bohemian Paisley Beaded Fob from Fern Ridge - click to see more
The Fern Ridge Collections has new needle cases and matching scissor fobs... always fun to work up!
  • Home of The Brave Needle Case and Beaded Scissor Fob - Always presented as full and complete kits, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave decorate both outsides of this fun folded case. Inside you'll find places for needles, a threader, and pocket to store some small scissors. All very festive, you get all the linens, threads, buttons, ribbons, linings, charms, buttons... everything you need for the fabric sewing case.
    Next is the Peyote Stitched scissor fob. Bright red, whites and blue, the charm is the Statue of Liberty. Small enough to do the beading part in about an hour - even the fringe doesn't look to intense to string. You need this one!
  • Bohemian Paisley Sewing Case and Beaded Scissor Fob - All black and white... with pretty mother-of-pearl accent buttons, this set will work up in a jiff. The case is TINY and the kit contains all fabrics, buttons, threads, and ribbons. The beaded fob is just the perfect size to work up, and would look stunning attached to a black pair of scissors!

Odd Rabbit Out Sewing Case and Beaded Scissor Fob Kits from Fern Ridge Collections
I think the rabbit on the case cover is stealing an acorn!
Not many kit details yet, but hand-dyed linen, lots of butterscotch and brown fabric and bead colors. The uneven fringe on the fob looks kind of fun - kind of like that 'odd rabbit out!'

Blue Sampler Bird, Jeorge the Jelly Fish and Ollie the Octopus Beaded Fobs from Fern Ridge - click to see more
Odd Rabbit Out Sewing Case and Beaded Scissor Fob Kits from Fern Ridge Collections
Single Beaded Scissor Fobs - These are all 'singles'... they do not have coordinating sewing cases at this time (they probably will not ever.) The perfect size to learn Peyote Beading on... you work these in your hands. You stitch the flat part first, then string the beads on there to make the fringe, and then add the cute charms and clasp up at the top - which attaches to scissors or whatever. The beading always confuses me when I start the first two rows... but when you get the hang of it, it's so much fun because the beads feel so good in your hands and they glisten in the light!
  • Blue Sampler Bird -  Features denim beads and creamy beads that look overdyed.
  • Jeorge the Jelly Fish has pearl-y colored beads in his fringe... deep grey blues and pearl.
  • Ollie the Octopus is full of bright marine blues, his crystal beads remind me of wet waves. They are a delighful mix of ocean blue colors.

Spring 2024 Releases from Satsuma Street - With Early Christmas Tossed In!

Stitched on any white you like with the brightest and happiest DMC colors they finish about 3-1/2 and 4 inches each. All three are presented in the chart and Jodi has included templates for the felt accents on them as well. Be thinking some fun button embellishments on these... or some frizzy trims as an extra garnish.
  • Merrily They Ring - This is presented as a complete kit with 18ct perforated paper - rather than 14ct, the floss, jingle bells chart and needle. Measuring approx 2 x 7 when finished, this would be cute hanging on one of those skinny walls you have between 2 doors or windows... somewhere nothing else fits!
  • Winter Woods - Take a walk through the snowy woods in this serene medley of evening scenes. Against that deep blue, everything looks cold, sleepy and quiet. Presented in leaflet format and coded to DMC, it measures 142 stitches square - so 9 x 9 on 32... which means the inner four designs are 4-1/2 inches each!

Little Bobbin is more like Stacy's Cracker Crumbs - the smaller animal designs - but she includes her sweet berry basket cushion, and as a good little mouse, her food supply is never far away! Bobbin sits atop any fun antique spool you can find... that bit of loose thread is coming from the needle in her hands!

All the New coming from Stacy Nash Designs! We'll bring them home from Market!
  • Calling of the Sea Pinkeeps & Pin Disk - This one is fun too! The chart contains all three designs - the round compass case, and both the whale and ship cushions. THINK you'll need multiple skeins of floss for that humongous whale! What a fun and festive set of designs!
  • Caroline's Sampler Sewing Bag - Measuring a generous 10-1/2 x 7 when it's closed... this is a charming pocket to hold threads, a hoop, maybe some scissors. It's worked on Weeks Dye Works Beige linen.
  • Mary Robards Sampler Pocket - Another pouch/pocket piece... this one is just 8 x 5-1/2 on 36ct Seraphim Tobias linen. I think you should put your name on it instead Mary's and PICK AND AGE YOU WANT TO BE in whatever year! Then, take it to every event you go to! THAT makes it your own, fun, and special!

Charming Hand-Poured Thread Waxers by Taylor! We're treating ourselves to these this year... Little life-sized Strawberries and Raspberries!
Beautiful little 'things' to adorn or use... waxers are 100% pure Beeswax. You can gently run your threads over the wax to straighten and strengthen before you stitch... or just have these tiny berries as pretty decorations on shelves, fobs, pin cushion adornments, zipper pulls... you get the idea. Over time, beeswax waxers will develop a natural 'bloom' which looks like a film on the surface. It can easily be removed with a hair dryer on high heat - for JUST a few seconds! Some like that patina, some don't... so you have care options here!

Stacy suggests using the natural colored waxers to help condition any colors of threads, but says that the red and black waxes are better suited for darker threads. While the wax will not 'bleed or melt' onto your threads and fabrics, it's better to store the red and black pieces away from light fabrics... just in case. We have tiny raspberries and strawberries... some are on metal lobster clasps to attach to your scissors or tote or whatever; some have silk ribbons to tie, but all have a glorious metal decorative topper piece. Taylor has been busy pouring!

Always and Always, The Dance, Lucky Ewe from The Proper Stitcher
Three fun new designs are on the way from The Proper Stitcher to us, coming home from Market!
  • Always and Always - I must have flowers Always and Always. Stitched with Weeks hand-dyed flosses this finishes approx 6 x 6 on 32ct. Just simple and very classy!
  • The Dance - Neat verse, gorgeous tree, this is done on 36ct finishing 8 x 9 using Weeks hand-dyed flosses. Love love that tree and the grass... and the house!
  • Lucky Ewe - Something small and quick to work up for St Patrick's Day... choose a background fabric a little darker than this is shown on - we are totally losing the sheep on here! Weeks hand-dyed flosses.. I just now see the tiny floral hat the sheep is wearing! Finishes about 4 x 4 on 32ct.

Hello Spring, Bloom and Lets Do Lunch from Val's Stuff - click to see more April Showers from Val's Stuff - click to see more
New Spring Arrivals by Val's Stuff! So cute and Colorful, They make you happy!
  • Hello Spring - This is the Freebie chart presented in this year's Nashville Market cookbook. You'll get dozens of good recipes and charts in that little book - an annual Must-Have!
  • Bloom & Lets Do Lunch - These two companion designs come together in one chart entitled 'Bloom.' Stitched on any white (or pastel color you like) with regular DMC, they are small enough to finish for this season. If you do just these two - make them into a folding stand-up. If you get the cookbook with 'Hello Spring' inside - stitch it too, and make a trip-tych - a tri-fold finish... or even make a four-sided standing cube, with pretty fabric on the empty 4th-side (which probably could face the back.)
  • April Showers - Stitched on Weeks Banana Popsicle linen... or another bright and pretty color from your stash, it measures 53 x 84 on 32ct. Presented as a small chart.

Gathering Violets, Liberty Glory Unity, Autumn's Acorns and Wintergreen Christmas from Luminous Fiber Arts
Luminous Fiber Arts has new releases for all year long! We're bringing it all home from Market!
  • Gathering Violets - The 7th coordinating design in this series, each is presented in a single leafet, they finish about 4 x 4, all are garnished with old buttons from your stash, and each is stitched in one different hand-dyed color of floss. Joins Berries, Clover, Honey, Acorns, Snowflakes and Stitches, these would finish well into stand-up blocks or a long zig-zag!
  • Liberty Glory Unity - Another charming retro-flavored seasonal trio... stitch these arranged like this, or make cushions or more little stand-up blocks. Coded for a medley of hand-dyeds, it's presented in leaflet format. Coordinates with Jingle Jolly Joy, Hop Peep Leap, and Sneaky Spooky Spells - quite a mouthful of names!
  • Autumn's Acorns - This is done with just one solid color of DMC... choose a rust, black, anything. In looking at the 'Gathering' series above, you can get an idea of what hand-dyed threads can do for a simple design like this... so get creative if the mood strikes! This is presented in a leaflet format.
  • Wintergreen Christmas - Love that brilliant aqua blue background for these... give them that retro-antique flavor. Choose your favorite count of fabric - Misty has includes the wool leaf and oval finishing templates for 14/28, 32, 36 and 40ct fabrics - so no guessing on making those cute little leaves! We have white Wisper thread from Rainbow Gallery - makes a nice furry Santa beard, and we have opalescent Petite Treasure Braid that would look stunning in the background snowflakes... beads for the pine tree fronds, red metallic for the Ho Ho Ho... lots of fun options.

Work of Our Hands from Rosewood Manor - click for more Some of My Favorite Things from Rosewood Manor - click for more Flowers of Quaker from Rosewood Manor - click for more
Luscious New Florals from Rosewood Manor - Coming to us in March!
  • Work of Our Hands - Lots of different 'areas' in this... everything is set off against a soft green background. Coded for DMC, you'll need multiple skeins of most of them, as this measures an impressvie 327 x 188 in size. The little square sampler is pretty in there, so is the basket - and nothing says you can't stitch just one of those!
  • Some of My Favorite Things - I just love this one! I see eight different but coordinating pin cushions in here... little bits of color surrounded mostly by white lace stitches. Regular DMC, I think some sort of green background is perfect for this because of the blooming flowers. Stitched entirely with DMC - you'll need 6 skeins of B5200!
  • Flowers of Quaker - A huge, busy medley of small stylized flowers tucked everywhere! This is done with Valdani hand-dyed floss - kind of hard to convert to other hand-dyeds, as each color is really a mixture of several others in it. (So probably worth the $ investment if you want yours to look like this.) The large initial box in the corner is kind of fun - a real place to sign you name!

Dewberry Meadow from Rosewood Manor - click for more Westhope Farm from Rosewood Manor - click for more
  • Dewberry Meadow - If you are a Blackwork-lover, this is for you! All the filled-in flowers surrounding that alphabet - Karen has this stitched in three different shades of an overdyed color - so choose your main color, and two more hand-dyeds that go lighter and darker. Only 8 x 8 on 36ct!
  • Westhope Farm - At first, I couldn't figure out why this had FARM in the name! But I see sheep grazing there... along with a pretty well-dressed farmer! The floral basket is commanding, and I love how full it is of stems and lush flowers... it might be small enough for it's own pin cushion!

Spring Folk  from Hands On Design - click to see more Gather Wildflowers from Hands On Design - click to see more Gather Blessings from Hands On Design - click to see more Blackberry Berry Basket from Hands On Design - click to see more
Numerous Pretty Spring Treats from Hands On Design Coming in a few weeks from Market!
  • Spring Folk - A Celebration of the Seasons - This is the first of 4. Yummy colors, rich details and textures - Cathy is using some #12 Pearl Cotton on these to give that added texture punch. Measures 53 x 190 - all the rest will be the same size... coded and stitched in DMC. Featured trim is Lady Dot Grace Green, and the wooden finishing board should come home from the show with us! The board has an etched design in the wood, we believe, and totally re-useable because we think you are using magnets to attach and change your needlework out!
  • Gather Wildflowers - Very Spring-Green-y! Little 3-inch rounds - all in the same chart - mounted on the CUTEST miniature paddles by Chantelle's 141 Design Company. You can see Lady Dot's Rik Rak trim poking out from the fabric edges - just for a little touch of color. I believe this will also be another 4-part seasons set of charts.
  • Gather Blessings - Another small 4-part chart set for the seasons, stitched in DMC on 32ct Platimun linen, it measures 2-1/2 x 4 - just a BITTY thing!
  • Blackberry - The third Berry Basket Design. Isn't this pretty and super colorful? 32ct Natural linen and DMC, it'll make a charming addition to your berry bowl OR basket! Chart.
Liberty Pennies from Hands On Design - click to see more Botanical Bee from Hands On Design - click to see more Gather at the Table from Hands On Design - click to see more

Stitched in three shades of red - you can choose any other scheme you want... or just one shade of any hand-dyed. Linda promises the DAD is coming soon.

  • A Cheerful Heart - Inspired by an entry in Linda's Great Grandmother's autograph book, and motifs from an antique pattern booklet, this mono chromatic set includes three pieces - a mini sampler, berry and needlebook. Set the pieces in a pretty wooden bowl - that dark background really sets off the pretty stitching. Presented as a chart.

Bloom Wildly, Emma Badman Wadford, Favoured Feline, Louisa Denman
  • Bloom Wildly - Full of colorful and happy blooms, Linda has included some matching hand-dyed button embellishments in the berry and cushion chart.
  • Emma Badman Wadford Sampler - This is absolutely lovely. The verse on top is really nice, but really Ok if you leave it off and just do the glorious bottom area. It is very old and elegant in flavor - the original was stitched in 1854 - and would make a gorgeous sampler just by itself, so Linda has included charting for that option. It does feature an unusual alphabet placement - it's the border!
  • Favoured Feline - Based on a silk gauze antique embroidery that Linda ownes, this plump, pamapered cat is adapted for linen and finished as a drum, although easily framed up or finished as you like. Chart.
  • Louisa Denman - A marking sampler reproduction featuring an optional verse, the original used a soothing color palette with interesting dividing bands. Chart.

Spring Rabbit Pillows from Tiny Modernist - click to see more Alice in Wonderland Tree from Tiny Modernist - click to see more Spring Chicken from Tiny Modernist - click to see more
Tiny Modernist has some fun releases for this Spring!
  • Spring Rabbit Pillows - Aren't these the cutest little things? Choose any white you like to work on (or pale gray or pink?) these use BITS of DMC 963, 3733, 353, 352, 772, 989 and 3799. Measuring approx 3 x 5 on 14ct, perch them in a basket with Easter Eggs, or in a candy bowl... or next to plant pots! They'd even be cute hopping around in your bowl of other stitched cushions! The stitching is easy enough so you could do both sides.
  • Alice in Wonderland Tree - This is like her Wizard of Oz Tree... straight out of the Fairy Tale books! Finishing a generous 10 s 13 on 14/28ct, and done in DMC, the background is a pewter color. All the fun little people in here, a fun way to remember the story.
  • Spring Chicken - Wow, this is eyecatching and cute! Measuring just 66 x 66 - it finishes under 4 inches on 36ct. It's shown in a flat finish, but I think a free-standing cube would be cool - because you could set it between plants, or on a sill. Coded for DMC, choose a garden-y green fabric background for this.

Love Grows Here from Tiny Modernist - click to see more We Should BEE Friends from Tiny Modernist - click to see more
  • Love Grows Here - Is this the perfect Spring Greeting decoration or what? Choose a cheerful fabric color and your DMC, and you'll love stitching with all the pretty colors... finishes approx 5 x 9 on 14ct.
  • We Should BEE Friends - 'A day without a friend...' This whole thing measures about 6 x 8 on 14ct. Truthfully, I like the hive in the pot and that pretty row of flowers... I think I'd do the bees too, and call it good! Stitched on Country Vintage Mocha - which comes in several counts - it calls for regular DMC.

  • Scenic Sampler - Remember Beth's Scary Sampler? It referenced all sorts of Pop Culture Scary things? Here's the opposite piece - happy and bright - with tons of references to her favorite sweet and happy remembrances from books, TV and movies. I loved reading all about it in the Scary chart! Measures 247 x 215, and is coded for hand-dyeds and DMCs.
  • Butterfly, Honeybee and Wooly Bobbins - Meant to compliment the Scenic Sampler - Beth's hubby made these in 'The board Room.' Beth says they are 'From forest to finish.' Something fun to hold your threads... each is sold separately.
  • My Scissors My Rules - Meant to be hung in a prominent place in your house so that there are no more excuses by family members for improper use of special snips! Beth says you can do this in any color scheme you want, and she's just attached cup hooks to her frame as little scissor hooks! Presented as a chart.
  • My Rules Scissor Fob Kit - Another Board Room creation by college-freshman-son Jack, he's busy, so you get to assemble this yourself! He's supplied the QR code for your assembly needs! Pretty darn cute... you supply the scissors, Jack made the cool etchings and probably cut down the tree too!

  • Sweet Melissa Biscornu - We remember this - it was one of our Circle of Friends designs a few seasons ago! Gorgeous soft honey golds and mossy greens, the pink color is Weeks Sanguine. Takes lots of thread - we remember that, but it also features 2 hand-made wooden bee buttons in the center - to make it extra special. Very pretty when it's done, chart format w/buttons.
  • Home is Where the HONEY, DOGGO, or PURRBALL Is - A very pretty house with a glorious floral garden vine growing everywhere... the yard is green and looks to be a fabulous place to run and play. There are three different charts for this... Honey has skeps on the roof, Doggo has a doggy up there (where he really shouldn't be) and Purrball has the wandering kitty perched up there. Measures 127 x 136, coded for hand-dyeds or DMC, choose your chart.
  • Home is Where - Your Heart Is! Just a sweet pin cushion design - it measures 45 x 110 and is stitched with hand-dyeds. It'll finish 2-1/2 x 6 on 36ct! Chart format.

Mementos of the Heart - Cecilia has compiled a 16-page book which contains 6 previously released (but long ago retired) Collector's Heart designs, and a new Kindness Drum piece. She's updated the threads a little, and refreshed the finishing treatments... so it's a nice treat for us. Old Hearts included came from 2002, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013. We can see the Kindness Drum model in the book cover pic... it's that round that is FULL of tiny hearts and what-nots!

Silk and Weeks coding, 40ct linen, it finishes a petite 8 x 8-1/2.

Three new releases by Samplers and Primitives - we love her gentle color shadings. We have gorgeous acorn designs from last Fall, and here are a few Spring pieces.

Upcoming Spring 2024 Releases from Liz Mathews
  • Abuzz at Midnight - Oh such pretty colors popping against that brilliant blue background!Measures 7 x 7 on 36ct.
  • Cottontail - Here's a quiet bunny hiding amidst the flowers in the garden. Liz presents two different colorways for this - kind of a 'push' to you that you CAN change fabrics and colors sometimes.
  • Remember Me Sampler Tree - I love this one! Finish it by framing... or make one of Liz's cute little cone shapes and make a tree out of this. The charts for each are slightly different to accomodate that finishing, but you get the same personality of the design. Doesn't look like it in the pic, but the framed piece is stitched on Country Vintage Mocha linen - a great 'faux hand-dyed.'
  • Spring House - This piece sports two different pieces of fabric joined together and then framed. Liz describes her dream garden house in the middle of an April rain shower... overflowing pots of flowers from the roof, the charming greenhouse, the European lace curtains and all charming bunnies and blooms in the yard. The whole thing is charming! Just be careful to choose two coordinating fabrics for this - same count, same texture.
  • Tenth Day of Christmas Sampler and Tree - Instead of 10 Lords a Leaping... we get ONE Santa! Way better! Liz suggests a darker fabric so the metallic 'magic' threads can be seen that are tumbling out of his sack. Same size as the other 9 so far in the set... just two more to go!
  • You've Got the Love - LOVE this one - of course! Another really good design to play with fabric and color options! Liz presents LOVE in a curved script, and the heart-shaped design as well. The bigger heart measures 104 x 91, while the smaller word is just 107 x 52.

  • Foxglove House and Sampler House - These are the 4th and 5th installments in the Houses of Wysteria Lane series. You can ALWAYS stitch them separately, and definitely DO NOT have to get the whole set... the Cross Stitch Police will not come to YOUR house and get you if you get just your favorites! Buttttttt... we do have an ongoing auto-ship just in case you do want them all!
    Pretty little houses, always surrounded with different borders - I think Lori is the Queen of pretty and unique borders - she has them on everything! Always that house, always the gorgeous urn of flowers.... I think just those urns would make a stunning collection of pincushions in a basket! Anyway, stitch count of 97 x 87, composite digital pic of all is here... the whole set is coded for coordinating hand-dyed flosses.
  • Come Stitch In My Garden - Coded for DMc, measuring 135 square, it's a fun piece for stitchers! Hang it by your chair, or split it up and make a needlecase and pin cushions out of the bottom two rows... it has lots of cute sections to it.

Upcoming March Releases - A Sneak Peek!
  • Americana Blue - This is a pretty seamstress/stitcher/quilter sampler! It resembles Americana Red, but seems to have lots more 'crafty' motifs in it. Measuring 247 square, it's worked on any neutral with one shade of hand-dyed thread - this time it features Weeks Dye Works Blue Jeans - 5 skeins worth!
  • Pollinator's Garden - Here's another long and skinny cushion design... a lovely row of softly colored wild flowers. Stitch count is 33 x 261 - it'll be less than 2 x 14-1/2 on 36ct! You could finish this and use it as a draft blocker on a windowsill! You can see another picture here... Robin has split this row up into two rows, and inserted her Queen Bee design I just talked about above, and made a bigger pillow. I like both options! If you want to do that, there is a dropdown below to order both designs at once.
  • The Queen Bee - Another of Robin's little 1 x 8-ish 'Skinny Mini' designs. They are all little skinny rows of somethings (pumpkins, tomatoes, scissors) that all finish into little sausag-y pin cushions! The Queen Bee might say it all for a Stitcher you know! Coded for just a few hand-dyeds. You can see above where Robin has combined this with Pollinator's garden to make that cool pillow.
  • Vineyard Faire - The next in The Faire Set. We have Honey, Pumpkins and Strawberries so far, and now grapes. A pretty 5 x 7 piece that highlights a fruit - with lots of pattern in the fruits.

Silver Creek's Camper Sampler, Independants Day and Wings of Change
Silver Creek Samplers has new releases that will arrive in March... we have a few more to share on our Market Page. I do not have design sizes, but know that all are coded for DMC floss and sometimes other threads as well. Everything is presented in chart format.
  • Camper Sampler - Something fun to hang at your cabin, choose a deep hand-dyed fabric color to simulate the night sky and highlight the bonfire. Might be fun to add a 'Welcome to our Cabin' greeting on here too!
  • IndependANTS Day - Well July certaintly is ant-season! Cute little fun 4th of July decoration for your picnic table or deck outside!
  • Wings of Change - Uplifting, this delivers good advice for life.

Hand in Hand from Silver Creek Samplers - click for more Memory Error from Silver Creek Samplers - click for more Prolific PUNcushions from Silver Creek Samplers - click for more Rainbow Crossing from Silver Creek Samplers - click for more
  • Hand in Hand - Something meaningful to display in an office, classroom, or meeting area? A fun way to use your needlework to make a grand statement!
  • Memory Error - Something else fun to stitch and hang in the office or classroom! You'll need to choose where you hang this one!
  • Prolific PUNcushions - This is a set of 10 cushion-sized designs... all dealing with plays on words. You have to match the pun-pillow with the person who will appreciate it... certainly unusual!
  • Rainbow Crossing - Something to stitch in honor of your furry friends who have passed. I think it'd be kind of touching - stitched and hung in a vet's office.

New Releases from Blueberry Ridge
  • All Hallows Eve - A colorful Autumnal scene... plenty of time between March and September to get this stitched! Coded for DMC or hand-dyeds, it's a generously sized 12-1/2 x 9 on 36ct. Might be fun to do Satin Stitches in your sawtooth border. Presented as a chart.
  • Sampler Seasons - Spring - The third installment of this set... you'll need three skeins of whatever hand-dyed color you want to use - the one featured is Weeks Madison Rose. Autumn and Winter are here, Summer still to follow later this spring.
  • Pinetree Chalet - This is a stylized Snowglobe design with a quaint wooden A-Frame chalet tucked inside. Stitched on 36ct Sanguine Weeks hand-dyed linen, using Weeks flosses, I love that bold bottom border. Finishes approx 7 x 7, and presented in a chart.
  • Bramble Cottage - Emily says this is the first of 6 new houses... she'll be arranging hers on a single piece... so maybe collect the charts first before you decide on stitch placement? Bramble measures 120 x 120 and uses a medley of hand-dyeds.

And God Saw from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Hello Spring from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Needleworker's Oath from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Strawberry Sheep from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more
Teresa Kogut New Releases
  • And God Saw - This is presented in a full color multi-page leaflet. 'And God saw everything he made and it was good.' DMCs and/or hand-dyeds, this is a stunning piece. Pretty borders, soft colors, it measures 13-1/2 x 15 on 36ct. Lots of stitches in here!
  • Hello Spring - This is a full book containing 8 designs. All 8 are pictured here if you click the image above... not really any information about any of them... but in peeking at the pics, I am sure you can find a couple of favorites. We'll know more when we finally get our hands on the book at Market!
  • Serenity - Another full color multi-page leaflet, there is a lot to like in this one! Thin, old-fashioned border, the corner fillagrees make this look old and aged. DMCs and hand-dyeds, this finishes a generous 19 x 19 on 36ct.
  • Strawberry Sheep - Finishes approx 3 x 4-1/2 on 18/36, she has this coded for DMC and Flower Thread - but Gentle Art's Simply Wool would be stunning on that sheep! Chart format. Taylor Nash's Strawberry Waxers are featured in the finishing... we have those waxer fobs and tie-ons in cream, red and black wax - raspberries too - and they are gorgeous!

Needleworker's Oath from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Spring is Hope from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Voice So Sweet from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more
  • Needleworker's Oath - This is a design exclusive to those shops that attend Market. It's a single chart... coded for DMC or hand-dyeds... we'll be bringing it home. I have to laugh... one of our challenges is finding enough hours in the day to stitch everything we want to do. I look at this and say, forget the lady! Too many stitches! Pull her out of there... move the left and right together - and you've cut that stitching time in HALF! Presented as a chart.
  • Spring is Hope - A sweet little sentiment for Springtime, it measures just 90 x 74. DMC and hand-dyeds - it'll finish approx 4 x 5 on 18/36. Chart format.
  • Voice So Sweet - 'He speaks and the sound of his voice is so sweet, the birds hush their singing.' Coded for DMC, this finishes approx7-1/2 x 8 on 18/36. Chart format.

Simple Life from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Wherever There are Birds from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Sacred from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more
  • Simple Life - 'is a peaceful life.' Classic hand-dyeds and DMC, this will finish approx 9 x 11 on 18/36. Chart format.
  • Wherever There are Birds - Pretty bold colors on this one, I love that big man bird! Measures 8-1/2 x 9-1/2 on 36ct... coded for Weeks, Classic and DMC. Chart format.
  • Sacred - Part of Teresa's Faith in Stitches Series... this finishes about 9 x 11-1/2 on 36ct, and is coded for DMC. Chart format.

Garden Box from Jeannette Douglas Shepherd's Box from Jeannette Douglas Chubby Bee from Jeannette Douglas
All the Lovely New Things Coming Our Way from Jeannette Douglas. We're bringing all 10 designs home from Market! Garden Box Back from Jeannette Douglas
  • Garden Box - Garden Time is fast approaching, so Jeannette has another set of boxed pieces that fit into her little shadow boxes (like Christmas and Stitch Box.) No specialty stitches on this, the main design is only 3-1/2 x 4 on 32ct, while the two smalls on the side are less than 2 inches in size, and the long cushion along the bottom holds a ruler on its backside. Stitched with hand-dyed cottons, there is no thread pack for this - only the wool packet that has the small pieces of wool for backing, the ruler, pins from Puntini Puntini, and buttons for the biscornu - a little finishing materials packet. (We call this box our 1-1-2 configuration... one hole, then another different sized hole, then 2 holes of the same size. Do not confuse it with the 1 - 3 configuration box! And... I see that we use the words 'tray' and 'box' to describe the same little type of wooden piece.) Presented as the leaflet with Wool Packet.
  • Shepherd's Box - Sheep and Stitching seem to go together... a fun theme Jeannette loves to work with. Main design is 3-1/2 x 4, and again those smalls along the side, and across the bottom. This design is coded for DMC but model is done with silks - so there is a thread pack as well as a wool finishing pack. Wool packet contains backing wools, templates to make holders and decorations on the backs, Puntini Puntini pins, and a sheep waxer from Noteworthy Needle. So that you have everything you need, we are offering the leaflet, and both thread and wool packets all together. So leaflet with no packs, or leaflet with both packs.
  • Chubby Bee - This plump little bee hardly looks like she can fly! (Jeannette promises a squirrel coming later this year to join Chubby Fox, Bunny and Bird.) Same size as its three companions - about 60 x 60 - it's done with hand-dyed flosses, and available as a small chart.

Heart & Home Sampler from Jeannette Douglas Needle Be True Sampler and Smalls from Jeannette Douglas Crown Sampler Adaptation & Reproduction from Jeannette Douglas
  • Heart & Home Sampler - What a charming collection of little houses! Stitched on 36ct, this finishes approx 8 x 8. Jeannette uses silks in her thread packet, including some Silk Lame from Rainbow Gallery, but also has coded for DMC floss. She's even had a matching wooden corner gauge made for this which has the houses on one side and measurements on the other. Presented as a leaflet with optional thread pack and optional corner gauge.
  • Needle Be True Sampler and Smalls - This is part of a greater series, the first being 'Joy Be Thine.' This is the second in the set. The third - 'Stitches Be Sweet' is currently her unreleased teaching piece, and 4th will be 'Count Be Correct.' Both #3 and #4 will not release for about a year (at least!). Measuring 8 x 10-ish on 40ct, Jeannette put so many fun stitches and parts in here, that she built smalls to go with the larger sampler. You can see a needle pocket, a tufted pincushion, and double-sided slider fob. All three patterns are included in the leaflet, and threads for each are included in the specialty thread packet. Remember this is coded for DMC if you'd rather stitch with that.
  • Crown Sampler Adaptation & Reproduction - Jeannette found an 1840's Dutch Sampler with lots of great motifs, crowns and shields, but it was a little sparse for her taste. She changed the shape and added lots of charming motifs of her own to adapt this piece. Finishing approx 7-5/8 x 19-1/3 on 40ct, this is coded for silks or DMC, and is presented as a leaflet.

Mini Bouquet Sampler from Jeannette Douglas Budding Bouquets #3 from Jeannette Douglas Budding Bouquets #4 from Jeannette Douglas
  • Mini Bouquet Sampler - This is coil-bound little book full of Jeannette's 12 little miniature monthly bouquets. She did these for retreats she attended a few years ago, and then offered one free each month on her website... but you might have missed some, and cetainly never had a pretty picture of the whole set together. Just a completely charming piece... it uses a ton of colors, but just bits and pieces! Presented as a leaflet.
  • Budding Bouquets #3 and #4 - Spring and Summer - The final two medium-sized 4 x 4 seasonal bouquets in J's series, these are lovely. You can work them on most any neutral fabric, and she has them coded for both DMC or hand-dyed flosses. Not much to say, except that these are charming, colorful, and just make you smile! Presented in small chart format.

Flower Burst Flings and Fobs from Luhu Stitches - click to see more   Mousy's Strawberry Basket from Luhu Stitches - click to see more
Presenting Flower Burst Flings and Fobs and Mousy's Strawberry Basket from Luhu Stitches
  • Flower Burst Flings and Fobs Cyndy describes these as a little garden bursting with color Her newest leaflet features all 4 pin cushion designs plus the 2 tiny companion fobs. Stitched on white opalescent fabric, the larger cushion designs are 40 x 40, while the fobs are just 20 x 20. She has bundled her finishing fabrics (1-13 x 18 cut of each fabric print) together for these as well - and we are getting that too! 'Bloom Where You are Planted, Keep Growing, You're Blossoming, and Sunny Days Ahead' are the featured verses. Love the colors, we are bundling the finishing fabrics together with the leaflet.
  • Mousy's Strawberry Basket - Isn't this sweet? Just a mere 50 x 70 in stitch count, little Mousy is hoarding his berry - all in a 'greenery garden basket. Offered as a chart.

Sleigh Ride from Praiseworthy Stitches - click for more Sunflower Farm Stacker with Spool from Praiseworthy Stitches - click for more Lighted Haunted Caskets from Praiseworthy Stitches - click for more Little Mummy Buckets from Praiseworthy Stitches - click for more
Several Fun Things Coming our Way from Praiseworthy Stitches
We're Bringing them all home from Market in March.
  • Sleigh Ride - This is 2024's Annual Christmas scene... this joins PS's other 10 charming Christmassy Village pieces - full of busy-ness and 'Everything Winter.' Sleigh Bells Ring is the verse along the bottom - goes with Jingle All the Way, Joy to the World - you can peruse her page and see them all. Finishes approx 15-1/2 x 14 on 32ct - again, that rich Nocturne hand-dyed linen color (we have several different brands with great colors in different counts, you'll need a fat quarter if you choose 32.) It calls for 28 different hand-dyeds (you'll need 9 skeins of Weeks Snowflake!) and a smattering of beads and thin metallics. Always fun, we have several of Praiseworthy's companion villages stitched in the shop and everyone loves them!
  • Sunflower Farm Stacker - This is a scarecrow version that matches Mr Snowman and Creepy Pumpkin! Chart calls for three different colors of fabric, (everybody has different ideas about what they want to use), hand-dyed Weeks flosses, and bits of Weeks Wool used in the assembly. The Stacker is built around an antique wooden thread spool (this is what gives it stability to stand) that is included with the chart. A little more challenging on the finishing end than a pin cushion or something, but do-able. SUPER cute... all three are actually smaller than they look in the pic - they are about 7 inches tall!
  • Lighted Haunted Caskets - We had these last year... and LOVED them! Little wooden caskets (2 x 1 x 5-ish - already assembled and everything) with a carved design on the top (there were 9 assorted designs last year - so random) they had little lights inside that you could turn on and off. Your bits of stitching are inside (a beaded scissor fob and pin cushion this year), and you see that and the light through the cut-out design in the top. ABSOLUTELY THE CUTEST THINGS! Anyway, you get the casket, and all materials to make the insides. Painting your casket is optional - they come as raw unfinished wood. Order these early - they WILL sell out!
  • Little Mummy Buckets - Something else cute and fun for Halloween! You get this little enameled tin bucket with that cute mummy design on it, and inside the pieces and parts to make the beaded scissor fob and pumpkin pin cushion you see in the pic. I am guessing the pail to be about 4 inches high... not big enough to hold 'serious' trick or treat candy... just enough to stash by your stitching chair!

Beach Comber from Lindy Stitches - click for more Let Every Creature from Lindy Stitches - click for more New Designs Coming From Lindy Stitches - March 2024
  • Let Every Creature - An animal menagerie sampler! Choose a pretty hand-dyed to look like a partly-cloudy sky and get busy stitching all these fun and unique animals! Stitch count is 170 x 217 and it's worked with a lovely medley of DMCs and hand-dyeds. I think it'd be fun to make this into a birth announcement if the nursery had an animal theme.
  • Beach Comber - Another menagerie of animals, this one reads, 'Comb the beach for treasures with me, My heart resides beside the sea.' I think this one would be fun with beads and metallics scattered here and there ON IT'S 109 X 188 size. And of course, it'd look great in the foyer of my dream beach house!

  • Patriotic Quaker - The next little seasonal pincushion, stitch this with DMC or hand-dyeds... it finishes about 5 x 5 on 32ct. Coordinates with the little Seasonal Quakers.
  • Red, White and Blue Quilt - Same colors as the Patriotic Quaker - Cherry Cobbler, Old Lace and Stargazing - or DMCs - this one is smaller at 65 stitches square. Just fun to stitch!
  • 12 Monthly Minis - You get all 12 seasonal cushion designs in this leaflet! Each one is a delightful 39 x 39 in size - so teeny 2 x 2's on 32ct! Using a slew (35 colors) of DMC - get out all your fun trims for finishing! I think the January snowmen are darling. So... $2/design!
  • Snowman 2024 - He's charming! A small card design, he's perched in a pomegranate pot, and happy it's snowing out there! 77 x 68 Is his stitch count. Hand-dyeds or DMC.

March 2024 Blue Flower Releases - A Sneak Peek
Due in the Shop after market - March 5th - a long wait till then - we are taking reservations for March delivery.
  • In Praise of Pollinators - Jeannine is a whiz at gardens and animals. Her things are always full of strange flora and fauna, and I love reading what everything is inside her charts! This piece celebrates the many pollination heroes in the world. There are native bees, birds, insects and mammals who are doing the essential work of pollinating the natural world. Her pretty sampler is done with mostly DMC and measures 165 x 195 in size. Tiny details and surprises everywhere in this!
  • Bees in the Greenhouse - We love this little shaped cushion! It's like a miniature greenhouse! It's inspiration comes from peering through the windows of an elaborate white-framed greenhouse... finishing details for this are presented on Blue Flower's website. Stitch count is 300 x 102 - done on 40ct - threads are all DMC.
  • Tudor Hound and Tudor Hare - A pair of complimenting designs, the hound is racing around the the elaborate spring floral gardens, while the Hare is sitting quietly, enjoying the beautiful blooms and the soft seasonal colors. Both feature DMC and trimmed with Lady Dot chenille trims.
  • Hedgehog and Hyacinth - These cute little hedgehogs are ready for wet spring weather in their green boots. Stitch count is just 55 x 59 - so a bitty little 3-inch cushion on 40ct.
  • Seasons of the Heart - Hearts for Pam - So charming! This celebrates the flora and fauna of Australia! Jeannine wants you to bring a little Aussie flavor into your home! 101 x 80 - This is companion to all her other Seasons of Heart designs.
