Mary Ann Carrington 1834
At first this sampler looks very balanced, simple and organized... but upon checking the chart, you'll discover that it is not symetrical, and there are lots of tiny one-over-one stitched motifs. Not hard... just don't lose count!!! Charted for silks or DMC flosses, the entire piece measures 194 x 189, and the model finished under 10 x 10 because it was worked on 40ct.
Gloria couldn't find any specific info on Mary Ann Carrington -- so just a pretty remembrance of a stitcher from yesterday! Offered as a chart.
Ann Blockley's Set of Smalls from Milady's Needle
Milady's Needle has a set of 3 charts that together make this delightful set of 6 matching smalls. Pin cushions, keeps and a scissor case, all are garnished with pretty laces or trims and old buttons. Since all are stitched on a variety of linens... choose YOUR favorite for your set. All are coded for Belle Soie Silk or DMC floss, and all six pieces have basically the same color scheme.
At first I was afraid of the buttoned trim on one of the cushions -- but it is purchased lace -- you attach the buttons! Charming finishing on all... I don't see how you can choose a favorite pair of the six... so I showed them all together. Consider a package or two of mother-of-pearl shell buttons for finishing on these... several shapes, consistent sizing... but accent with some fancy old buttons as well!
ABC Come Stitch With Me
This is an entire set of matching stitching tool pieces... all stitched in Red Currant and Clay Pot Crescent Colours Cottons (you'll need 4 skeins of each color, but you can always choose another pair of colors, as well!) A ruler design, Floss Tag, a Stitching Pocket to hold some of the pieces, a Needle Book, and tiny Scissor Fob... all is stitched on both the front and back sides, using regular Cross Stitch.
The instructions include a great 'Pattern Map' -- an overall diagram of piece placement on your 21-1/2 x 12 cut of 40ct linen. If you choose another count, you'll have to adjust your ruler and floss tag designs... they are the only things that won't fit into the Lucite finishing pieces. Lots of finishing details are included to make this pretty set of pieces. Offered as the chart.
Needles & Pins|
"Needles and Pins, Needles and Pins, When a Girl Marries, Her Trouble Begins!" That is the charming verse on Milady's new Pin Keep and Needle Book set. Stitched on 35ct Hand-dyed Linen in Splendor Silks, the sampler verse is on the front of the Keep, and a miniature paper version that holds precious needles is tucked away into the pocket on the back. Complete finishing instructions are included for the piece -- you'll need to supply more silk for the twisted cord and tassels, along with the white glass-headed pins.
Pretty rose-lavenders and moss greens... this is really cute! Offered as the complete kit of charts, linen, silks and paper needle case, it finishes approx 3 x 4-1/4. Also new, released along with this piece are more Sampler Key Chains, and a pretty ruler design. Make sure you see them, too!
My Little Strawberries Ruler Pocket|
Get out your magnifier and get ready to stitch this elegant creation on 40ct linen! Designed as another companion to Milady's Strawberries Rule and Accoutrements Needle and Scissor case Sets, this is so nifty! You're stitching the linen case for it... that can match your other pieces.
Worked in overdyeds, it's cross-stitched on both the front and back, as well as the flap. Complete assembly instructions are included in the pack. (Yes... I asked her... there will also be an Acorn Ruler case... but we have to be patient! There is even a stitched linen tray to hold scissors, orts, etc..in both motifs coming... but we have to be REALLY patient!) So, in the meantime, treat your stash to this, and make sure you see ML's other new releases!
Acorn and Strawberries Rulers and Accoutrements
This is a really neat set of designs that features a cross-stitched lucite ruler, a matching scissor case, needlebook and scissor fob. Available as individual chart packs with the rulers separate, I think these are charming!!! Since every stitcher's bag and every desk in America (and overseas!) needs a ruler... choose all four projects, or just that ever-functional ruler! Offered are a strawberry set and an acorn set of designs. Stitched on 40ct linen in pretty reds, rusts, brown and green overdyeds, the acorn caps are stitched with a variation of a Rhodes stitch so they are raised and textured a bit for added interest.
The ruler is a lucite 12-inch piece with a removable back to make it easy to insert your needlework. (We also have a beautiful brass ruler available below.) You must stitch the designs on 40ct linen to be able to fit into the rulers, and it is suggested for the rest of the pieces, just so gauge will match. (It is an option to stitch the cases and fob on something larger, if you need to!) Very nicely done! (Can you tell that I'm taken with those rulers??? What a different gift to present to someone!)
Pam Reed has new small projects that might make *just the perfect small gift* for just a small occasion! Kindly Remember Me -- A small floral bouquet embellished with a single brass butterfly charm, you'll need bits of floss from your stash to make this 2 x 3-ish cushion. Offered as the chart with linen cut and charm.
B is for Beehive
The 7th wool pin cushion in this delightful collection has arrived! Absolutely the most darling little hive of activity, the trio of tufts stands approx 4 inches high, and a chubby 3-inches wide.
Made from Weeks hand-dyed solid and houndstooth wools, the complete kit comes with the wools for the hive and leaves as well as the wool roving stuffing inside. You also get all the flower buttons -- 7 of those, 2 bee buttons, and the pair of bee stick pins with 3 embossed alphabet pins, too!
Full instructions include all the templates for all the shapes. So CUTE!
The Spooks in Val's Pumpkin Patch! from Val's Stuff
This is a set of 4 little 'people' that just might haunt your patch of pumpkins this coming Halloween... or maybe just your candy bowl! Each (they are limited in production, hence the LE down there in the product description!) is a celebrity that can simply stand on his/her own clothing... but are much cuter with a stick (I used an INK PEN under the witch!) tucked under that fabric, and stuck into a (fake craft or real) pumpkin! Val has ALL THE FIX'INS in her little kits - JABCO pins, felts and felt balls, gauze, hats, noses, eyes, brooms, pipe cleaners, ribbons, stuffings and sticks (for some of them) - everything but the cross stitch fabric, and the minute bits of floss. Grab your Glue Gun!
Couldn't Scare a Crow from Val's Stuff
Couldn't Scare a Crow is another miniature pumpkin-poke-person. (We have 4 companioning witches and what-nots to this little guy!) He's stitched on 14ct perforated paper, and his little kit comes with that paper, a little raffia for his hands, the darling mini straw hat, wool ball for his head, the clay blackbird buttons, his little nose, plaid scarf fabric and even his pokey stick! Finishing about 4 x 4, you'll need a few flosses from your stash. Get out your glue gun to assemble him, and poke that stick into a pumpkin and you're good to go!
Hip Hip Hooray! from Charland Designs
This is a simple design presented in a small card format... it comes WITH the darling sterling silver articulated Uncle Sam charm by Charland.
The Sam piece measures almost 2 inches tall and his little arms and legs MOVE! His artwork design was from Frank Bielec of Mosey 'n Me.
