Fabric Scrap Bags - click to see more Our Famous Annual Fabric Scrap Bags
Because we custom cut fabric pieces in the shop, we always end up with a fantastic tub full of odds and ends of beautiful cross stitch fabrics. So... a representative pic here... our Fabric Scrap Bags are packaged by the 1/2 pound. You get 30-40 small cuts of various fabrics - all different counts, colors and little odd sizes. Most run in the 4 to 6 to 7-ish-inch area... you might get lucky with a 9 x 9 of something, but generally these are all smaller than that.

We don't label them... so what you get is a lovely surprise of little treasures for pin cushions, needle books and ornaments. It takes months and months to gather enough scraps for these... and they aren't around very long each year. So Grab While You Can!

There are lots of fun thing going on in here... we like the hair on the girls, the kitty under the table, the scissors and spools perched there, and of course all the pumpkins scattered everywhere. The roof is fun because it's a witch hat and there appear to be spiders and bats in the attic. It'd make a cute stand-up decoration.

Top left has lush Fall grapes, block #2 has a charming house with a quilt hanging in the garden and I love that pumpkin birdhouse!

Block #3 has a lucky squirrel and his tree of acorns, while #4 has a gal picking apples. A sawtooth border surrounds each block -- do that in Satins for a really dramatic effect.

A Sampler Farm -- How can any other season besides Summer come to mind when you see all the bees, the chickens and that big ol' sunflower?

You can always get creative and add some embellishments, laces, beads or special threads... but these are cute just as they are.

House of Wool has yarn everywhere and a sheep or two -- the knitting needles are little straight stitches with French Knot tops. House of Sewing has scissors and fabrics, and the garments hanging...

Little Sampler from Nikyscreations - click to see more Little Sampler
A stitch count of 100 x 100, this was finished into a cushion in Niky's booth at Market. I think it'd be darling split up into 4 cushions, too!! She's put a tiny bit of wool on there for the flower she's watering, and like the Amish Harvest, you COULD attach that quilt as a small separate piece.

You could use some Wisper thread for the bunny and the cat, and you could add a couple of petite beads to the birds! (nothing too shiny -- pick some with a matte finish to go with the dusty DMCs in here!)

Sampler Dish Towel - click for more Sampler Dish Towel
If you are a sampler-lover, you might like this just for fun! (forget that dish-drying suggestion!) A brown cotton-type fabric (I don't think it's linen, feels more like a heavy homespun cotton), the towel measures 18 x 29 and it features a stamped image of an antique sampler.

That artwork measures about 5 x 7 on the front. It'd be a cute basket lining decoration - or something fun peeking out from a bowl of pincushions. The design is placed in such a way that you can have the towel folded, and hung over a bar, with the complete sampler showing.

Each *month* is presented in its own full-color leaflet - coded for DMC floss, each heart finishes approx 7 x 5-1/2 on 14/28ct. Just beautiful, if you are really good, you can switch around the cats on the various hearts!

January features icy blue 'flakes.' February has rose hearts. March sports green shamrocks with pops of purple. April has tulips of course, May has the violets, and June is full of strawberries. (I know the rest of the year is coming... I just don't have the details.) Besides switching those cats around... you COULD toss special stitches into these... these beg for that! A fun little set so far... ENJOY!

A Gift From Heaven
With My Needle's Ellen Chester has new twin grand-daughters -- Norah and Kathryn -- so of course here is matching pair of birth samplers!!!!! A central panel of grazing sheep surrounded by the pretty borders of urns and vines... the samplers look the same, but in studying them, you'll find they go together, but are different - just like the girls!

You don't need a twin to enjoy these, however! Both samplers are in the same chart pack --- they finish approx 5 x 8 on 36ct and they are charted for Needlepoint Inc Silk or DMC floss.

Sentiments 1 and 2 from With My Needle - click to see more
Sentiments 1 and 2
This set of designs is rumored to be the first in a series of small sentiment designs. Measuring just 73 x 73 in size, if you choose 36ct, they will be 4 x 4. Smaller fabric -- smaller pics - and they would be STUNNING pin cushions then!

Simple designs and thoughts, each is coded for silk or DMC. A basket of these little guys all stitchee into little cushons seems promising!!!

Wow... a trio of fun stuff!!! Mrs Waddelow's Needlework Basket is a companion piece to her Huswife piece... pretty Brick Week's Dye Works color on Amber Linen... you'll notice a button bag in there and a scissor case, along with a ruler and thread winders! Offered as the chart.

Next, is Blue House Primer -- the little wooden hornbook paddle. Stitched on both sides, one holds needles. Cute, the chart comes with the wooden paddle piece

Faby Reilly Designs Sonny The Snowman Pendant - click to see more Sonny The Snowman Pendant
Isn't his little guy CUTE????? He is a THREE-SIDED pendant stitched on 32ct Antique White Belfast Linen with regular DMC flosses. Each of the three sides is an individual design -- Sonny, his mittens, and that charming top hat and bird perched atop. Each side measures approx 6 inches long and 3 inches wide. So if you construct this into the pendant, it'll make a generously sized tree ornament.

So cute and different, you can trim up the edges a little and make a neat beaded hanger if you like. Offered as a chart.

Telling The Bees

Spring Heart Hop has a leaping hare amidst more gigantic blooms. Both of these designs are embellished with some of Kelmscott's small mother-of-pearl shell buttons (but could be something pretty and antique-y from your stash, as well.)

107 x 210 -- Approx 7 x 13 on 32ct, this is worked in two shades of 4 different colors... so again... pick some pretty hand-dyed that accent each other and fit the color of your room.

Little bits of Rhodes and Queen stitches, lots of Double Running... the model is personally too bright for my taste, but the actual design and flow of the stitches is lovely!

Moonlight Midnight from Blue Ribbon Designs - click for more
Moonlight Midnight
Blue Ribbon Designs offers a busy Halloween Medley piece -- full of fun things for the season. You can always do any of these individually, but together they have lots of impact. I like those ghosts on the broom sticks! Entire piece finishes approx 9 x 13 on 28ct.

The smalls feature the metal finishing forms that we sell -- perfect disks of metal to keep a perfect shape. I think that house would make a really cute candy bucket, too! Lots of possibilities with this one!

Six Bats and a Witches Hat from Blue Ribbon Designs -- click to see lots more Six Bats and a Witches Hat
Here's another of blue Ribbon's charming checkerboard designs... only this time it has a Halloween theme!!! SO CUTE... you'll keep looking at this and you'll find something different each time!

Stitched on 32ct, this finishes approx 9 x 9 and is stitched in Weeks overdyeds of Carrot, Curry, Havana, Hazelnut, Lilac, Mascara, Pelican Gray, Scuppernong, Snowflake and Sweet Potato.

Containing TONS of delightful teeny motifs, it features some Leviathan stitches, and would LOVE you if you added more special stitches and a few clay embellishments. We haven't come close to doing it justice with our images. The design is strong enough for lots of creativity... if you're so inclined! You could do miniature ornaments... teeny individual blocks as scissor fobs... and since each one is only 16 stitches... they'd be 1/2 AN INCH! Make sure to see Belinda's Patriotic and Valentine's Checkerboards... They are awesome, and you can have lots of fun with them!

The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz!
from Brooke's Books
Brooke Nolan has released a set of 8 characters from The Wizard of Oz. Offered in chart format, each is coded for DMC floss and some feature metallics for an extra punch of color. Stitch counts for all are 52 wide... and heights range from 58 stitches (the Flying Monkey) to 104 (The Wicked Witch of the West.)

Cute as can be... even though you are seeing digital images and not the actual stitched pieces... they'll finish approx 4 x 4 to 4 x 7 in size -- on the large side for ornaments, but if you do them on paper, they'd be awfully neat. Anyway... colorful, familiar, and fun!

Autumn Sunshine Line GIRL from Brooke's Books -- click to see more Autumn Sunshine Lines
One of Brooke's Books newest baby announcement designs, these are always unique, and because of all the individual stitched pieces that are involved... you can stitch some or all, depending on your time! Offered as charts, the packages include 14ct brown perforated paper, charts for each piece, along with the alphabet for personalization, glass seed beads, DARLING miniature wooden clothes pins that are only an inch in size and Velcro dots to help attach your pieces to any background fabric you choose.

Using DMC flosses from your stash, each tiny piece is stitched on the paper, cut out, hung on your floss-line -- with the tiny clothespins, and then attached to the background. Your overall finished size can vary a bit, depending on how you arrange your clothesline -- especially if you have a specific frame you already have, and want to use.

So cute, these have an Autumn flavor to them... which is good... because this year's Autumn Babies won't be here for 5 or 6 months... and you'll have time to stitch! (Winter Sunshine Lines Babies will be here sometime in June, with Spring and Summer following this Fall.) Check out the tiny squirrel and the puppy in the boot for the boy... and the paper doll on the girl's... it features detached legs that swing!

A Simple Egg from Shepherd's Bush -- click here to see a larger view! Simple Egg
The companion to "Three Pale Eggs", this is supposedly a simpler egg... only it doesn't look like any 'plain-jane' egg to me! Stitched on 32ct creme belfast linen... in "Easter-y" shades of silk... you're going to have to have it!!!

Glad Heart from Shepherd's Bush -- click to see a larger view Glad Heart

A new kit from Shepherd's Bush arrived TODAY! 'My heart runneth over' is tucked between delicate Quaker motifs, a bird and elegant urn of flowers. Offered as a complete kit, the included 32ct Irish Cream hand-dyed linen is a soft color, and the 5 x 5-ish heart is stitched in rich and vibrant raspberries, mosses, and ivory silks. Belle Soie, Silk 'n Colors, Gloriana and Au Ver a Soie... they are just lovely!

The heart features a few special stitches -- some Satins, Rice, and Scotch variations -- so the motifs have quite a bit of texture. Just charming, the mats are on their way!

She Tends -- click to see more She Tends
Shepherd's Bush has released a charming pastoral quartet of shepherdess designs... all presented together in one leaflet. 'She Tends, Garden Fair, His Flock, Tender Care.' Each tiny 2-3/4 inch block features part of the verse... each is stitched in overdyeds and includes all the same pretty flowers, tiny sheep and graceful hills.

Such pretty pinks, lavenders, moss greens and sunny buttermilks, you're treated to a lovely scene of the shepherd and shepherdess tending their flocks! Each block also features one of Tina and Terry's sterling charms -- a standing lamb, a leaping lamb, and the shepherd and garden girl. Stitch them individually, and then tuck each into the Jill Rensel hand cut and painted mat... it doesn't get any better than this! Offered as the leaflet, fabric (30ct hand-dyed) is offered separately, as well as the charms and overdyeds.

Offered as one of Country Threads newest Punch Needle Patterns, it finishes approx 5 x 6, and is punched with a 3-strand needle.
Done in DMC flosses, this is one that our Antiquing Finish Spray would be good with -- to add just a subtle undertone of 'dirt' and 'age!' Such great colors, that Harvest Moon behind him is just the best!
Offered as the design stamped onto weavers cloth, with at least 4 extra inches all around for your frame, if you use one, ... you add those flosses.

Yankee Pride from Country Threads -- click for more New Punchneedle Designs from Country Threads
A crisp, fresh, exciting set of Punch Needle designs... I love these because they look primitive, but contemporary at the same time! Great angles, great design prospectives... Vertical design but you're teased into wanting to turn them the 'right direction!' Offered with the design stamped onto the weaver's cloth... take a peek at these!

Sir Scissors Hollow from Blackberry Lane Sir Scissors Hollow from Blackberry Lane Designs

from Blackberry Lane Designs
Here is a cute hoot-owl scissor fob design that is worked on Onyx and Pumpkin Weeks Linen with Chestnut, Sally Sunshine, Marigold, Pumpkin and Mascara Weeks hand-dyed flosses. Finishing only 2-1/2 inches square, the designs themselves are fairly easy to stitch... it's that dark linen that is the challenge. (Maybe change the black to a color, and stitch the black background??)

Anyway, Marie has chosen Weeks wools to finish these into her small cushions -- they are charming! Linen and wools are offered separately.

He He He My Pretty
from Blackberry Lane Designs
This is the coolest little scissor fob! Two sides of needlework, you can see the witch flying against the moonlit sky on one side, and a simpler witch hat on the other side. The model is stitched over any 32ct linen you have in your stash -- color doesn't matter, as the whole thing is covered on the front. Marie gives instructions for the beaded scallops she has sewn all around as edging -- that really adds some sparkle.

Just a *piece with attitude!* , you'll need 18 colors of DMC floss from your stash, as well, to make this darling 2 x 2-ish piece! Offered as a chart, with brass pumpkin and ghost charms included.

Samplers Remembered Pin Cushion - click for more Samplers Remembered Pin Cushion
What an awesome finishing treatment for some simple stitching! By Samplers Remembered, stitch the simple PINS design in any colors you want, on any little bit of linen you have. After assembling the cushion (walnut shell filling, even a Crazy Quilt backing treatment) you get the instructions for adding, via crochet, 125 of Kelmscott's Mini Rounds buttons to purchased cotton trim.

I need a lesson in the crochet area, but the chart does include written info, and advises that the internet has lots of crochet demos available. Either way, I love that edge treatment... we have to get some shop models done like this!

Fall, in Pieces from Funk & Weber -- click to see more Fall, in Pieces
This is a really cool design... a medley of leaves, stitched within a leaf shape... stitched to look like a puzzle... or NOT! This stunning piece is stitched in 33 different overdyed shades of Sampler Threads, along with DMC's 996 Electric Blue for that crisp blue sky background. 51 skeins of thread needed, your Fall Leaf Puzzle finishes approx 12 x 13 on 28ct.

The pattern can be stitched like the cover shows -- a puzzle, with the scattered pieces, just BEGGING to be put into place -- OR you can FIND the missing pieces and stitch them in! Keep the black backstitched puzzle piece lines on there, or leave them off! What a fun piece bursting with Fall color, what a cool presentation! Offered as a chart, F & W has a few other intriguing designs, too!

Puzzle Pisces from Funk & Weber -- click to see more Puzzle Pisces

You can leave out the puzzle pieces like the pic on the cover, or like the Fall in Pieces, you can find the pieces, place them in the stitching. Then, either stitch the black lines to make the little pieces, or leave them out! Offered as a chart, very unique!

Garden House from Chessie & Me - click for more Garden House from Chessie & Me
This companions Linda's Garden House Stitch Book - same pretty colors, motifs, etc. This time, you can make a fob and a cushion, but she shows it wrapped around a scissor block! (blocks are all different sizes, you might lose a tree or two on the sides! The one pictures has 9 holes.) Stitched with Weeks flosses on 32ct Weeks Beige Linen the wool featured in the finishing is Week's Cinnabar Houndstooth pattern.

Any of the 4 wool finishes - herringbone, houndstooth, glen plaid or solid will look good on the finished pieces - you don't see enough of the pattern to matter... and if you aren't a pink gal... go green! (we can help choose wools for you.) Anyway, main sampler finishes approx 2-1/2 x 7 (a long skinny cushion size), the initial square measures 2 x 2-1/2 and the fib is under 2 inches in size! A charming set, with a neat finishing idea!

Strawberry Alphabet Sampler from Chessie & Me - click for more
Strawberry Alphabet Sampler from Chessie & Me
Three different alphabet fonts and those darling Chessie Cats over one, this fits in the same tray as Linda's previous designs Floral Sampler and Friendship Garden. Choose Weeks 32ct Confederate Gray linen, this is worked with Weeks and Gentle Art hand-dyed flosses. Four-sided stitches, Smyrnas and Eyelets, Linda has some of those over 4 threads rather than two.

The little wiener fob needs a Schnigglet cut of Wool -- Mountain Mist is featured on the model, but you can choose any wool color that matches some of the flosses used. Chart is separate from the tray.

After the Rain from Filigram - click to see more After the Rain
... The Sun shine! By Filigram, this is a light-hearted piece that is worked in regular Cross Stitch with Gentle Art Sampler Threads. Choose any fabric you want... the sample was worked on Natural linen. Stitch count is 261 x 44, so it'll be approx 3 x 18-1/2 on 14/28ct.

The alphabet starts out at the left with the cloudy sky and the little wet snail... passes through the rainbow... and at the other end... sunshine and a buzzzzzy bee! Pretty colors, a fresh, cheerful design style, offered as a chart.

Seaside Roundabout from Erica Michaels -- click for more Seaside Roundabout from Erica Michaels
Wow... this imaginative piece is a show-stopper!!! Offered as a punch needle project, this charming piece could be a tiny rug that's framed for your lake house, a sun porch, or any place you want a reminder of the sea! Offered as the pattern presented as a re-useable iron-on transfer, Seaside is punched in a variety of DMC flosses, an overdyed and metallics, features a few clay button embellishments, and finishes a robust 7 inches in diameter. Like looking through a ship's portal window, the colors in this are just wonderful, the design is so unique, the shapes to flowing... can you tell that I just love it??

As a BONUS... EM has included a smaller transfer and complete instructions to stitch this in tiny French and Colonial knots! You'll remember the Teresa Layman miniatures??? This is a seaside version that is knotted on a piece of cotton fabric -- which has a slight mottling to the pattern. A summer companion to EM's Autumn Roundabout and Spring Roundabout... this is a definite!!!

The Four Seasons Accessories by Jeannette Douglas -- click to see more The Four Seasons Accessories
A Pin Wheel Needlebook, Home Scissor Fob and Spring Basket Pincushion, this is a trio of smalls to match your main seasonal sampler. A smaller selection of the same threads is used to make coordinating pieces - using some of the favorite stitches.

The threads used include the Merlot, Eggplant and Cinnamon Week's hand-dyed wools that line the needlebook, the Gloriana chenille thread that trims the fob, more beads and charms to embellish, along with all the stitching silks. Pretty pieces even without the main sampler!

Apple Stitches by Jeannette Douglas -- click to see more Apple Stitches
Ohhh... same awesome format as Pumpkin Stitches... this brings Jeannette's offerings in this series to 14!!! (If you check out the back cover of the leaflet, you can see all the rest in the set -- Silver Needle Stitches is the piece she taught for our shop a few years ago!) Anyway, Apple Stitches finishes 6 x 8 on 32ct, Lambswool and is stitched with glorious colors of browns, greens, and rich apple red hand-dyed silks. I'd call these late summer-early fall apple colors -- not the brights of early summer.

Again, just a few Cross Stitches, but lots of Satin, Scotch, Oblong, Italian Cross, and Holbein (Blackwork, or Double Running). I don't think you can see them in the pic, but there are tiny white apple blossoms in this that are garnished with a gold bead center. Pretty borders, pretty leaves, even that center apple -- just as it is -- would be neat on its own.

Halloween Quaker Pin Cushions by Jeannette Douglas -- click to see more Halloween Quaker Pin Cushions by Jeannette Douglas
This is a charming piece -- no matter which fabric and thread combination you choose! A 9 x 10 medley of small Christmas motifs -- each one is stuffed FULL of special stitches and measures a mere 1 to 2 inches in overall size. Jeannette shares that 4 of the motifs in here were originally presented in various past issues of the Just Cross Stitch Annual Ornament Issues -- but she doesn't tell us which ones, so you'll have to go on a hunt to figure that out!!! She has chosen 32ct Antique White Belfast for one -- along with traditional reds, greens, white and corresponding metallics and beads.

For the other option, she has stitched it on 32ct Natural Linen with a DIFFERENT selection of (also!) traditional deeper reds, greens, golds and browns -- no metallics or glitzy beads. thread pack containS hand-dyed flosses, Gloriana's Lorikeet Wool, and other necessaries. Both samplers get to use all the fun Leaf, Leviathan, Sprat's Head, Mosaic, Smyrna, and a bit of Cross Stitch.

Gorgeous little motifs, you can use these for so many individual fobs or ornaments... stitch just a row of 3 or 5 of them... stitch four of the trees, or the four snowflakes together in a piece. LOTS of design options with this, lots of ways to use up scraps of misc fabrics in your stash. We have both models in the shop -- and both appeal to everyone. Your choice is going to be hard, so get one leaflet and both thread packs!

Friendship Sweet Bag by Jeannette Douglas -- click to see more Friendship Sweet Bag
What a fun set of smalls... Jeannette has designed a Sweet Bag of sorts -- much less stitching than the Elizabethan ones of old! A 'Gift Bag' for stitchers, this holds an emery needle cushion (1-3/8 x 2-7/8), bottle cap pin cushion (only 7/8 an inch in size!), and coin scissor fob (only 12 x 12 stitches!!!.) Offered as the leaflet with thread and embellishment packet, Jeannette has included a Canadian quarter in there... it's the stuffer inside the fob!

Sweet Bags used to be given as gifts... and usually there were gold coins inside! So... you're supposed to add your own country's currency to the fob, as well. The design uses #12 Perle Cottons, Rainbow Gallery and Needlepoint Inc silks of dusty blues, mauves, and mossy greens, organza ribbon to tie your bag, felt for the bottle cap cushion, a sterling acorn charm. You'll need to scrounge your kitchen for a plastic bottle cap... and we DO sell white emery to fill the Needle Cushion. In reading, I believe the entire little bag is approx 4 x 6 inches in size!

Magnetic Needle Minders
A very classy way to keep track of stray needles, these elegant, Victorian Cameos feature a pair of magnets on their back, to cling to fabrics, or rest on the table... just wherever you'd like. The magnets will attract your needles, so you won't lose them.

Each Cameo is made from a resin material, but they look just like porcelain! 1-1/8 x 1-1/2 inch ovals, we have 7 designs available, and each is just as lovely as the other. Soft colors, beautiful relief, these are very well done, and what a great price, too!

Cameo Angel Magnets
Kelmscott has released an awesome set of oval cameo magnets -- needle minders that can double as regular magnets!!! Lovely letters decorated with elegant angels and cherubs, each one is different in design, but similar because they are all a soft cream color on a matte black finish.

Measuring approx 1-1/2 inches, these tiny resin ovals feature a magnet attached to the back, along with yet another magnet. Designed to 'cling' to your fabric, and mind your needle, they'd be pretty as a regular, lowly refrigerator magnet!!! Everyone you know has a *name* that begins with a *letter!* Start with YOU and then your best friend... and go from there!!! Lovely!.

from The Primitive Jewel
By Primitive Jewel, here is a stitched thread palette just like her Halloween Threads piece! A cute idea, this is a board, covered on both sides with your stitching, and trimmed with a set of mother of pearl thread rings.

This would be REALLY FUN as a tree ornament! Hang your scissors near-by trimmed with a pretty stitched fob! Who says ornaments have to be glass baubles? Offered as a chart, rings offered separately.

Counting Stitches from Primitive Jewel - click to see more Counting Stitches
from The Primitive Jewel

Hey, this is a cool design!!! It is for stitched *rulers* if you will -- gauges to determine the count of your linens! (Yeah, yeah, you can just count with a needle, and we have plastic stitch gauges that we sell a ton of, but these are delightful little what-nots.) Each is stitched on its appropriate count of linen, so when you hold up a mystery scrap from your stash, you have a gauge to determine stitch count.

Just charming, these are finished with just fusible interfacing and backing fabric. (You don't want fancy edging on there -- because you need that graduated edge to line up smoothly with your mystery fabric.) Something fun for a needlework display, and another cool thing to add inside a special stitched needlework case! Even... fun gifts for your stitching friends! Offered as the chart of three measures.

This is a drum-shaped pin cushion -- we don't see too many of these. Stitched on 36ct hand-dyed linen with gorgeous shades of Brandy, Mulberry, Pumpkin Pie, and Walnut Sampler Threads and Best Olives Needlepoint silk, this little thing finishes into a 2-ish x 4-1/2-ish cylinder. It has three panels of design -- kind of a Pennsylvania Dutch and quilt flavor. The very bottom has a golden wool star on it, too.

Pretty colors, just a charming addition to all your small cushions! Offered as a kit of linen, felts, threads, ribbon, Skirtex stiffy and beads.

What an awesome finishing treatment for some simple stitching! By Samplers Remembered, stitch the simple PINS design in any colors you want, on any little bit of linen you have. After assembling the cushion (walnut shell filling, even a Crazy Quilt backing treatment) you get the instructions for adding, via crochet, 125 of Kelmscott's Mini Rounds buttons to purchased cotton trim.

I need a lesson in the crochet area, but the chart does include written info, and advises that the internet has lots of crochet demos available. Either way, I love that edge treatment... we have to get some shop models done like this!

This is a charming chalet scene teaming with cute little sheep. They're hopping everywhere, having the best time!

Measuring 207 x 176 -- they are stitched on a medium pink-red linen -- we suggest Weeks Dye Works Red Pear (30 or 32ct) hand-dyed. It's a perfect choice for this! 22 DMC's called for, even just the chalet with a few sheep would be darling!

Not a very exciting name for this set of designs -- BUT they ARE cool! This is a set of charts that says 'I love Stitching, Crocheting, Quilting, and/or Knitting. One chart for each thing. Measuring approx 70 x 140 in size -- 4 x 9-ish on 32ct... they are coded for DMC floss. Each has the wording, a lady doing her craft, and then a window scene.

I am not sure what the window scene has to do with what you are doing (other than the fact that you are taking a break and looking out the window!) but those scenes are charming... and you can interchange them, leave them totally off, or stitch THOSE and forget the other half! Kind of odd... and a bit on the pricey side...but hey, you'll figure out something!

Quite a festive toy shop awaits Christmas Shoppers, only they better shovel so you can reach the front door!!! Designed by Sara Guermani, this is stitched on 32ct Natural Belfast linen that has white polka dots printed on it. (looks like the falling snow.) The building is festive and the gigantic tree is even better!

Finishing approx 11 inches square, the chart is coded for 22 colors of DMC floss, and includes a pair of wooden buttons -- 5/8 inch candy cane and gingerbread man, who are featured up in the second story windows. Try adding some opalescent filament to the white snow, or maybe some red in the tree ornaments??

A pair of similar designs, these are stitched on 32ct Natural Polka Dot Linen with DMC flosses. Each measures 8 x 10, and features a wooden 2-1/2 inch cut-out angel button in the design.

The trees in these are the focal point, to me... the wooden angels are darling... but you could use those on something else, and these pictures wouldn't miss them. So DOUBLE USE out of these charts!

Another fun Christmas design stitched on the polka dot Belfast 32ct linen, This one features a neat Christmas tree during it's decorating process. Coded for DMC floss, this finishes approx 10 x 12 -- quite large. You can see stars in the background and small motifs along the bottom in the pic.

Those are buttons that are NOT included in the chart. I don't know anything about them... except to say that you could use that as design inspiration to add some of your own. I don't think you'd miss them if they weren't there. I don't know why this chart is so expensive either... probably was supposed to come with those darn buttons... so I'm cutting the price from $34 to $18!
