  • Nettie Brown also uses Mountain Mist wool for piece backings, but is charted for silks. The main design is just 4-1/4 x 2-3/4 in size!! Bitty little things!

Miss Nettie's Needle Usefuls from Chessie & Me

Mouse and Owl join, Kitty, Puppy, Nick, Cocoa, Snowkids, Ornaments, Sugarplums and Reindeer. The names are spelled out in alphabet buttons... these are wood with paper letters, but Just Another Button Company has letter 'tiles' almost like Scrabble letters. They look great on these stockings, 4 different colors... we special order your name's letters. Pattern suggests 2 inches of fabric around design -- a little easier on Santa's budget! Whooo has 4 tiny black buttons in those eyes... big beads will work as well.

Delivering Peppermints and Candy Canes from Homepsun Elegance - click to see more Delivering Peppermints and Candy Canes
Homespun Elegance has new design -- an Owl-Santa is doing the deliveries with his cute candy-bucket!

DMC or Week's flosses are called for, and there are amber shell buttons used on the wagon wheels down at the bottom. (Use the darker mangy side of them!)

The peppermints at the top can be cross-stitched, or made from white buttons with red stitches over them to look like mints. (We thought of the JABCO peppermint buttons as well -- you can soak them in coffee to get them darker.) Lots of cute options here, this finishes approx 3-1/2 x 5-1/2 on 30ct -- Sandra has used Week's Merlot Wool for her backing -- it'd make a stunning pillow background!

Dames of the Needle has a new miniature hornbook ornament that finishes a mere 2-1/2 x 2-3/4. Both sides of the little paddle are stitched, and garnished with Just Another Button Company buttons... very simple and cute!

Although the hornbook is technically supposed to be displayed with the handle downwards... where one would hold it... to avoid having to drill holes in your paddle piece... you could always 'adapt' and hang it on the tree from the top hole in the handle! (We won't send the Cross Stitch Police after you!) Offered as the chart, stitched on 32ct linen in overdyeds... linen, hornbook and buttons (8 stars and 1 sheep) all available separately.

Merry Christmas Pin Pillow from Dames of the Needle - click for more Merry Christmas Pin Pillow and Ho Ho Ho Santa Drum
Dames of the Needle's Elizabeth Ann Talledo has released two really neat charts that deserve a look! They are both the same size - finishing approx 3-ish by 12 inches on 32ct - and she has finished them into long, skinny pillows or cute little stand-up circular drum shapes. I need you to look beyond the cover pics a little... they simply don't do these justice. Both are stitched with only one color of thread - and meant to contrast the color of the background fabric.

Deer Hornbook and Scissor Case from Dames of the Needle - click for more Deer Hornbook and Scissor Case
Elizabeth Ann Talledo has another cute little hornbook just like her Maryland Sampler and Christmas Peace on Earth pieces. The cute little wooden paddle is decorated with stitching on one side (while the other two have both sides of the paddle decorated) and this design features a matching needle case. Stitched on 32ct with Sampler Threads, there is a bit of over-one stitching and Nun's and Blanket stitches garnishing the edges.

Cute and quick, offered as a chart with hornbook separate. (Note: the paddle in this pic is not available... we have the same paddles available that are featured on the Maryland and Christmas pieces -- they'll all match!)

BUT, pass me of piece of cake anyway! Lots of stitching in this one to commemorate a special birthday, but then again... there might be a lot of birthdays to commemorate!

Offered as the chart, this finishes approx 7 x 8 on 32ct and is stitched in overdyeds. Little confetti buttons decorate the cake, and I think the candle flames would be fun stitched in metallic!

Between all the scenes are borders of special stitches, and as always the included instructions and pictures are huge and easy to follow.

The entire sampler finishes just 3 x 17 stitched on 28ct Natural linen. If you do the little scenes by themselves -- they will make WONDERFUL 2 x 3 inch ORNAMENTS!!!!! (Don't get stuck in a rut that something like this HAS to be stitched into a long piece -- change it up a little!)

Coded for DMC floss, (she has 18 colors called for) there are small scissors, a spool, and a needle on here... what I see are lots of tiny options for some mini pin-cushions to make a set. She has finished this on the front of a stitching pouch - another really nice idea to show this off, and make it useful at the same time!

Leaves from Nikyscreations
  • Leaves - A 7 x 8 piece stitched with DMC floss, the house in the center has a filled-in background -- making it a little picture in the center of the busy birds and vines surrounding it. What makes it fun are the wool acorn cut-outs Niky has added to the left side as part of her finishing treatment. Super-simple, yet they add texture and an additional focal point. Leaves is shown finished as a pocket... but it'd be cute as a pin cushion too - and you could do more acorns on the back if you wanted to.

Blooming Scissor Fobs from Nikyscreations Blooming Scissor Fobs
These are sweet, dinky little things! Just 1 x 2-ish, they feature backgrounds that are solidly stitched.

All matching floral baskets -- they'll make great 'bowl-fillers' for something petite -- like the metal soap dish in the pic!

Stitching Sampler from Nikyscreations New Samplers
from Nikyscreations
Stitching Sampler - This one finishes approx 6 x 6, calls for DMC and reads; *Any day spent sewing is a good day.*

Black Sheep Sampler from Little by Little - click to see more Black Sheep Sampler
I have always liked this design! Not sure what most of it means... but I think the ship and sailboats are neat, the whale, the ducks playing Indians! There is the black sheep up there -- the subject of the verse -- and the couple inside that stone house, the path and that tree on the island.

Maybe it's a good conversation piece on its own! Offered as the chart, it finishes approx 8 x 9 on a 35ct. DMC floss coded.

The Birthday Gift from Little by Little - click to see more The Birthday Gift

Bold Autumn colors, this is worked with 14 different shades of DMC.

Just a pretty piece, you'll definitely need to enlarge the chart -- as the symbols are too similar in value to tell apart easily. Other than that, it's fun!

European Villages
Artist Michael Powell has been charting his delightfully whimsical houses and village scenes for a few years now.. but is finally offering his creativity in chart form, rather than full kits... and we are THRILLED!

So many charming design elements in each piece... I love the snowcapped roofs of the Winter Village set, the cobblestones in the Summer Set, and the heart-shaped street lamps of the Venice Set!

Offered as charts, each finishes the same size, approx 7 x 8 on a 28ct. Stitched in whole crosses, what gives these so much flavor are the bright colors, and the displaced backstitch. You get lots of crooked little lines and shapes, lots of fun interest, lots of 'relaxing' buildings... I just love all of these!!! They fit my idea of the perfect little bustling European Village -- right out of a picture book!

Reels Christmas Tree, Reels and Buttons & Knitting Christmas Tree from Filigram
Filigram has a trio of fun needlework designs... one just a 'sewing sampler' and the other two -- fantasy Christmas Trees!

Cream, cranberry, denim and soft brown... each pattern has a needlework theme and is filled with tiny motifs. The Stitching/Sewing Christmas Tree has a tiny tomato pin cushion on it, buttons all over the place, tiny spools and of course thread that trails over allthe tree branches. Reels & Buttons would make such a fun sign for your sewing room or corner... replace the alphabet with info about YOU! The Knitting Tree is decorated with hanks of yarn, and the tree's base is a knitting box! Socks, mittens and hats decorate as well. Each of the three pics finishes 115 stitches square -- on 32ct, that's only 7 x 7 in size. Presented as charts -- super cute!

Sweet Sheep from Filigram - click to see more Sweet Sheep from Filigram
This is a pattern we've been enjoying in the shop for some time. I've just never highlighted it for you, and need to, because it's so cute! It is definitely a tribute to one who raises sheep, shears them, spins wool, knits with it, wears the mittens and scarves, or even counts sheep in their sleep!

Offered as a chart, it finishes approx 6-1/2 x 9-1/2 on 32ct and is stitched with Gentle Art Sampler Threads or DMC.

Spring Vegetables from Filigram - click to see more Summer Vegetables from Filigram - click to see more Fall Vegetables from Filigram - click to see more Winter Vegetables from Filigram - click to see more
Spring & Summer Vegetables I love these matching seasonal garden scenes! The picket fence that surrounds everything, all the neat and tended rows, the yummy fruits and vegetables, the shovels, spades, rakes and watering cans, and those darling scarecrows -- they rule the gardens!

Very well done with lots of cute motifs that are very recognizable, the charts are printed in color. Coded for Gentle Art Sampler Threads or DMC flosses, these finish approx 6-1/2 x 9-1/2 on 32ct.
