New Designs from October House
We are enjoying a trunk show from Robin in the shop RIGHT NOW... and are excited for new designs!
  • Gingerbread Row - A Skinny Mini - This is a sweet gingerbread village that measures just 41 stitches high but 228 stitches long! On 32ct, it'll measure just 2-1/2 x 14! Darling to perch on a windowsill as a draft stopper! Coded for varied hand-dyeds. Stitch just a single house or two - they'd make cute little ornaments or stand-up cubes, or scissor fobs!
  • Garden Sass - Robin used all her favorite colors in this piece... Red Pear, Hinter, Grits, Fathom, Winnie Blue and Rose Petal. Her sassy little floral basket in the center is accented by the borders of Quaker motifs and then calming leaves. She loves stuffing alphabets in small spaces.. so X Y and Z just made it! Arrives in the shop May 11-ish.
  • Faded Flag - We LOVE this one! Another Skinny Mini - These designs make great frame weights! Stitched with Gentle Art's Old Red Paint, Antique Rose, Dungarees, Shaker White and Pomegranate, on 36ct, this finishes just 1-1/2 x 8-1/4! Arrives in the ship May 11th-ish. Needs no other words than WOW! LOVE 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.

  • Pumpkin Faire is one of October House's newest releases. It is the 3rd in a set of similar designs - Strawberry and Honey so far. The glorious fruit full of stitches that make it look geometrically textured... very eye catching! Measuring about 4 x 6, you CAN pull of the actual fruit and stitch a bowl of those!
  • Pumpkin Row - This is another Skinny Mini design - about or 9 inches long and only an inch high, these make delightful cushions! Check out Snip Snip, Tomato Row, Deck the Halls - they are all like this one. Fun little geometrics in the pumpkins - not much to this so a very quick and fun stitch.
  • Coffee & Pumpkin Pie - Breakfast of Champions! Any time of year! Measures 76 x 106 - so 4 x 6 on 36ct.

October House Releases... Several fun things... all fresh and pretty!
  • Vintage Trees - Just a small thing at 105 x 87 - about 5 x 6 on 36ct - she's chosen faded hand-dyed colors to make this look vintage.
  • Snip Snip - How fun is this? A fun 2 x 7 design stitched with Sandcastle, Flatfish, Bright Leaf, Whiskey and Dirt Road... it needs to be on one side of a cushion and Itch to Stitch on the other!
  • Itch to Stitch - Coud be the other side! Spools and a little yarn, add a tiny skein of floss on here, if you're good at tying a little one. This uses 5 different shades of peach, rose and berry - so easy to change those to another colorway if you want.
  • Americana Red - A monochromatic piece full of sewing and quilting motifs, the whole thing finishes approx 12 x 14-3/8 on 36ct - quite good sized. You can pull out that top area of stitchery stuff and make a drum shape out of just that, there are a lot of nice motifs on here along with the borders. And, as always, if you don't like the one color used - just choose another!
  • Honey Faire - A companion to Strawberry Faire, this features another pretty patterned motif - this time the beeskep. Measuring just 92 x 68 - 5 x 4 on 36ct - it uses a medley of yummy honey-colored hand-dyeds: Lemon Grass, Snowball, Old Marigold, Caramel Corn, Broom Tree, Squash, Chickpea, Goldenrod, Molasses, Bees Knees and Curry.

Spring and Summer 'Flavors' for Stitching!
October House has released a few new patterns and I guess because one is a skinny row of tomatoes, it makes me think of summer and flavors!

  • Tomato Row is actually a bitty little thing! Measuring only 7 x 1-1/2 in size, it'd be cute perched on a windowsill... to remind you of how many tomatoes you're going to get when your vines ripen! Coded for DMC or hand-dyeds.

Strawberry Faire and Every Knitter
  • Strawberry Faire is a very pretty berry and bird pin cushion that looks delicious! The geometric patterns in the berry and the repeating swirls of the leaves along with the deep reds and soft greens just pop! Charted for a mixture of hand-dyeds or DMC it finishes bout 4 x 6 on 30ct.

Live a Humble Life
This is a sweet piece worked on 32ct Week's Dye Works Parchment Linen. Coded for hand-dyeds or DMCs, it finishes approx 14 x 5.

The finishing presentation is pretty. The piece is simply stretched over a board, but then mounted onto another fabric-covered board - so it has a colorful 'mat' around it! Gives it a really nice touch of color!
