The Visit from Praiseworthy Stitches - click to see more The Visit
This piece celebrates friendship! The classic verse, 'The road to a friend's house is never long' is featured, along with the ladies, themselves, in the front yard! Stitched on 32ct, this measures approx 18 x 25-1/2, and is stitched using Weeks and Sampler Threads overdyeds.

I love the shading in the house, and all the identical leaves on those trees... and the little fish in the pond, and the wrought iron fence and the benches... there are a lot of neat details in this. The chart talks about spending time with your friends -- the hours go faster, and hearts are made lighter! You could even change out the alphabet letters in the border, and stitch specific initials instead!

'Frost on the pumpkins and birds in the air... come rejoice... Harvest Time is here.' A bustling scene, complete with scarecrow that should be FIRED! The wagon is full of pumpkins, ready for pie!

This finishes approx 6 x 14 on 28ct, (lots of fabric choices will work...) and is stitched in DMC or Crescent Colours overdyeds. Part of the border is cross stitched over 4 threads instead of 2, but everything else is regular cross. Cute, this is offered as a chart.

*Needles and Pins* graces the front of this approx 3 x 9 stitching wallet... can you see that it folds into thirds? It'll make a petite 3 x 3 case! These girls are QUEENS at cramming tons of pieces and parts into their tiny little kit packages! This one is no exception!

Actually, it's all very neatly folded and organized in here! You get a 12 x 18 cut of linen for the main wallet, the pretty taupe and denim (the 931 DMC colors) printed calico finishing fabrics, ribbons, flosses, beads and that clam clasp, thread rings... everything you need to construct this sewing case. 'It is quite a collection of delight!'

This is a real cute set of stitched Halloween Smalls -- everything comes as a compact kit packaged in a 4 x 4 x 4 decorated Halloween box! Frankenstein, a mummy or Jack-o-lantern decorate the little boxes, and inside you'll find a multitude of bitty things! There is a 2 x 2 x 2 black plastic cauldron -- your ORT bucket.

Next, all the fabrics you'll need to stitch the 1-inch cube that is Frank's head -- doubling as a thimble box -- the white to make the tombstone needlecase -- even the yellow Trick or Treat case.

Beads, charms, ribbons, even the google eyes that get glued into the bottom of the cauldron -- The Praiseworthy Gals thought of everything in here! When you're all finished, everything fits back into the little box to be stored away till next year!
