Offered as a leaflet with awesome silks, metallics and assorted embellishments, you are treated to a band sampler full of fun stitches and the neatest motifs!

The Statue of Liberty, the clock on 5th Ave, Atlantic City's Boardwalk, a Big Apple, Sugar Maples and Northern Red Oaks, Goldfinches and Bluebirds. The Brooklyn Bridge, the Jersey Shores and Cape May, even a short lesson on how to hail a cab!!! She has tidbits about New York and New Jersey history all throughout the pattern -- explaining why everything is in here... the whole thing is just like a miniature vacation -- all from your stitching chair! Finishes approx 5 x 14 on 32ct Confederate Gray Belfast Linen.

The words 'take time to scrapbook' are stitched on here... but you could change 'scrapbook' to 'family'... because of the little photograph -- of your choosing -- that you get to attach in the lower right-hand corner. It is a lovely design, easy to work, and full of pretty color! Offered as the leaflet with 2 sets of silks and beads.

from Luhu Stitches

I am dating myself, but when I was in something like 3rd grade, I had a *Thing Maker*... it was a little cooker thing, and you poured the 'Plasti-Goop' into little metal trays and cooked *Fun Flowers.* That sun reminds me SO MUCH of the flowers that I made in my Thing Maker! (I was so cool when I was 10!) Anyway, cute design, coded for Weeks and DMC... enjoy!

The Secret Collection
Released over several years time... Trilogy has a delightful set of 5 x 5 designs all centered around the seasons, holidays and a few hobbies.

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! Stitched on Vintage Country Mocha fabric (we have that color in several different counts -- aida and linen) with DMC shades of 3865, 355, 535, 840 and 931 or 924. 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.


Mani Di Donna Black Fantasy - click to see more Mani Di Donna The Welcome Street - click to see more Mani Di Donna The Simple Life - click to see more Mani Di Donna Liberty Lane Pillow - click to see more Mani Di Donna Nantucket Lights - click to see more
from Mani di Donna...
  • Black Fantasy - A thread ring holder, sewing roll cushion and a little box, all is stitched on one cut of 30ct Weeks Onyx linen - or a nice dark gunmetal alternative. DMC (3832, 3782 and 932) or silks, the stitching is soft and flowing. Simona includes lots of pictures inside the chart for your finishing aides. She's provided template measurements (in INCHES - not metrics, for us Americans) They show you how to anchor the rings in there (we carry those rings by the way!), and how to make the velvet roll, and wrap the diamond panel around it! A charming little set - not too big, just the right size! We have the chart along with Simona's two tulip waxers, the completed beaded scissor fob in the pic - trimmed with the clay tulip - and the pair of tulip pins you see poking from the cushion!
  • The Welcome Street - Pineapples abound! This design offers lots of parts. You get the main 'street' design - the four buildings. There is a flower pin cushion pictured - blue flowers in the corners, but what you cannot see are the pineapples separating them. The chart comes with 4 golden crystal pins to embellish this little cushion - and highlight those stitched pineapples. There is a needle book, and a little bag to hold a pineapple waxer - which is included in our accessory pack. All of that, along with a beautiful beaded scissor fob trimmed with a pineapple charm! Stitched on Weeks Cocoa linen with Weeks flosses, a lot of fun things to digest in this pattern!
  • The Simple Life - The Farmhouse, barn and sheep in the yard... finishes approx 11 x 6 on Weeks 30ct Cocoa.
  • Liberty Lane Pillow - Finishing just 4 x 5 on 32ct... the words are lovely, but this will be even smaller if you leave those off - or stitch them on the backside for a little surprise to your cushion!
  • Nantucket Lights - I've never been to Nantucket, so i don't know if these three lighthouses exist or not... but they look good 'in stitching!' Just kind of for fun.... it finishes 12 x 5-1/2!

Harvest Home Pin Cushion from Mani di Donna - click for more Thankful Pillow from Mani di Donna - click for more Thankful Pillow and Harvest Home Pin Cushion

Market Finds!
Mani di Donna's Newest Came Home From Market With Us. Really cute!

Each of our 4 seasons stitched on Week's 30ct Cocoa linen, with regular DMC floss!

All 4 are in one chart!


Halloween in the Air from Mani di Donna - click for more Halloween in the Air & Sounds of Freedom Pin Cushion Pillows
Well, we're mixing the seasons and holidays by showing these together, but that's OK. Both charts offer designs that are long and not very high, but they are finished differently from each other.

Think outside your 'pillow' and add the trim and fabric to the Halloween ones if you want - just like shown on the Stars and Stripes designs. These are cute, simple designs that can handle lots of cool metallic, hand-dyed or furry threads - even some beads - to dress them up and make them your own.

The large *Halloween* word measures only 110 x 23 - and most of that height is the ghost, while *Boo* is 25 x 72 - so they are bitty little pin-cushion things! The three patriotics are worked with Weeks hand-dyed flosses and all measure 30-ish by 100-ish. (On 25 over one, that's about 1 x 4 each!!!)

Ventotene from Mani di Donna - click for more
Ventotene
I love this little European-feeling little scene! I think it's supposed to be Venice... but Venice doesn't have lighthouses! But there's a cathedral... but there are hot-air-balloons... and that big ol' crashing wave!

So YOU decide where you want this to be! I think it's just charming! 32ct Morris Blue Weeks linen, and only 9 shades of Weeks hand-dyed flosses, it measures 90 x 53 in stitch count.


Land of Freedom Sewing Box Set from Mani di Donna - click for more Land of Freedom Sewing Box Set
This is a charted design that includes a main -- approx 6 x 8 -- design (shown on a box top), pin cushion, needlebook, scissor fob, and a charming little thread keeper. The theme is Americana, which is funny, because this is an Italian designer! (Just think Columbus, I guess!)

Everything is stitched with Gentle Art Sampler Threads or DMC on 28ct Light Mocha Linen. Along with the chart and its finishing instructions and pictures, you get three small bone rings, a trio of red, white and blue star pins, and a 7 x 14-inch cut of dark teal and cocoa homespun fabric to finish all the smalls. A very cute set!


Like a Butterfly Music Sewing Set from Mani di Donna - click for more
Like a Butterfly Music Sewing Set from Mani di Donna
This is a charming stitched music box BOX by Simona! Your scissor case and fob match the tiny round box - which has a music box mechanism inside! Want to see it work? Lift off the tufted (Weeks Dye Works Houndstooth Wool) top, to find a stitched inside base - about an inch down. The rest of the box is holding a hidden music box... but the little crank is poking through a hole you left on the backside of the round!

So unique! We're getting all the pieces and parts she is offering - pins, music box movement, fob beads and case handle... $60.00. 30ct Weeks Linen, flosses, wool and ball trims are all offered separately.



Kitty Doodles by Amy Lee Weeks For Mill Hill! - click for more
Kitty Doodles by Amy Lee Weeks for Mill Hill
What a delightful collection of simple black-line doodles from Amy Lee Weeks! The people at Mill Hill have converted them to Cross Stitch on 18ct white Aida, and embellished with a few glass beads here and there. Design sizes finishing approx 5 x 7, each is stitched with 99% DMC black floss and accented with simple striking colors in the design borders.

SO DARN CUTE... they are presented as complete kits of the chart, fabric, beads and flosses. Frames are offered separately. These ARE done on aida -- don't get hung up on that -- if you have a swatch of something else white in your stash, use it. The designs are darling, and will WAY overshadow the fabric you stitch them on! I LOVE the one that says *Don't stress me out!*

The Fuzzy Spider, Halloween Octagon and Sparkling Blue Pin Cushion
The Sweetheart Tree has a trio of new releases that we think are worth mentioning!
  • The Fuzzy Spider is a 50 x 54 stitch count design (3 x 3 on 16/32ct) stitched with DMC floss and garnished with orange crystal paillettes. The spider can be stitched with Rainbow Gallery's Wisper or Fuzzy Stuff thread - that's what makes him fuzzy. Chart comes with the crystals, you supply everything else.
  • Halloween Octagon - A cute little black kitty in the pumpkin patch, this is classic Sweetheart Tree! The chart comes with a trio of yellow flower beads as garnishment - you supply everything else. Stitch count is only 44 square, so this is a quick stitch!
  • Sparkling Blue Pin Cushion - A pretty little 'mattress' finish, this is the same size as the Kitty Halloween Octagon design, but it looks so much larger! You're stitching the top - a different design on the bottom - and then all around the sides. The chart comes with pretty crystal blue pailette embellishments - you'll add a little DMC floss and some Mill Hill beads.

New Arrivals from Sandie
  • Blackwork Needlebook and Fob - This chart continues Sandie's set of Blackwork smalls... she already has a biscornu, needle roll, sampler, and heart ornament (all which are described on our Sweetheart Tree page.) Not technically 'Blackwork' which is usually a Double Running stitch and usually worked with a black color, it is a charming set none-the-less! The front of the needlebook is 76 x 76 in stitch count, and the little fob is only 43. Chart comes with black crystal paillette embellishments!
  • Bees in a Box - This is a fun new shape - a box with a flat bottom and a curved, stuffed top. The alphabet and cute little bees wrap around the sides, but the top part is stitched homeycomb. You get gold metallic paillettes with this chart... to garnish the delightful little 2-inch 'cube!' You'll need a few DMCs and beads from your stash - choose any creme, neutral or light yellow fabric you like!
  • Sparklers in Lavender and Blue - Sandie's crystals now come in colors, so here are her trademark square designs adorned with sparkles of color. Presented as charts with the 12 paillette embellishments, choose a linen fabric you like... you'll also need your DMCs and 3 shades of Mill Hill Magnifica Beads for each. Although you can frame these, they really look nice finished into biscornu shapes. With their simple center designs, they give you room for a really pretty tufting button in that center.

Tiny Blackwork II Alphabet Sampler from The Sweetheart Tree - click to see more Tiny Blackwork I Welcome Sampler from The Sweetheart Tree - click to see more
Tiny Blackwork Samplers - Welcome and Alphabet
The Sweetheart Tree has a pair of black and white pieces that are almost the same - basically reversed in direction. With stitch counts of 123 x 74... they finish 7-1/2 x 4-1/2 on 32ct. Choose any single hand-dyed color to stitch these... doesn't matter... but you get about a dozen black glass paillette embellishments, so keep those in mind when choosing colors.

The Alphabet sampler features lettering in the border, the Welcome one says Welcome Friends! Presented as charts with paillette embellishments.


Our Flag Does Not Fly from The Sweetheart Tree - click to see more Sparkler in Red from The Sweetheart Tree - click to see more
Sparkler in Patriotic Red & Our Flag Does Not Fly..
. A pair of Americana-inspired designs, Sparkler finishes approx 4 inches square and features 13 deep garnet-red glass paillette embellishments. Toss in Algerian Eyelets and Magnifica bead touches... it's a fairly quick stitch. Presented as chart with paillettes.

Our Flag is a tribute to fallen soldiers. The chart measures 94 x 61 and comes with a few pearl embellishments and three red flower beads.


Blackie & Punkin' from The Sweetheart Tree - click to see more Itty Bitty Here Fishy Fishy from The Sweetheart Tree - click to see more Itty Bitty Here Fishy Fishy and Blackie & Punkin'
The Sweetheart Tree has a few new designs... her little black Itty Bitty Kitty is always the favorite, so here is Miss *IBK* out in the pumpkin patch and taking a break to fish a little!

Itty Bitty Here Fishy Fishy comes as a small card chart with Sandy's cute little silver-tone fish bead. Measuring only 35 x 35... you won't need much DMC for either of these.

Blackie & Punkin' measures 48 x 48 in stitch count and comes as a half-sized chart, Yellow star flowers and orange glass paillette embellishments are provided. There is an alternate border chart included with this chart - a checkerboard that adds 4 stitches in each direction.
They join several other kitty designs by Sweetheart Tree.


Summer Flowers Biscornu Pin Cushion from The Sweetheart Tree - click to see more Summer Flowers Biscornu Pin Cushion
Another of Sandie's charming smalls set, this one is stitched on a pale yellow or cream linen and has yellow and pastel pink roses on it. Embellishments for both are tiny pearls that come with their respective charts, and the biscornu also comes with two pale blue flower beads for the cushion centers.

Stitched on both sides... if you're short on stitching time... just do one side... they are pretty either way. Cushion finishes approx 3 x 3, fobs are a petite 1-1/2 in size. We have several shop models of Sandie's smalls like these -- they are VERY pretty!


Be As Happy As A Bird With a French Fry from The Sweetheart Tree - click to see more Be As Happy As A Bird With a French Fry
A small design -- this measures only 29 x 50 in size. It comes with 5 crystal paillette embellishments. Truthfully, quite expensive, (I personally think).

Sandie is phasing out of kitting her designs and going more towards charts with embellishments only. Prices seem not to reflect the absence of linen and threads... hopefully you have a few bits in your stash that you won't mind using for this!

Plum Fancy Pin Cushion from The Sweetheart Tree - click to see more
Plum Fancy Pin Cushion
Just a sweet little design, very *Sweetheart Tree-y* in personality! 55 x 55 in size, it finishes approx 3 x 3 on 36ct. (Choose varied counts of Platinum linen.)

Using DMC floss from your stash, the design features 4 Rhodes Heart stitches and a small interior border of Diagonal-Oblique Herringbone. 4 Crystal paillettes and a purple cats-eyeluminescent heart bead embellishment are included.


Quaker Flowers Sampler from The Sweetheart Tree - click to see more Quaker Flowers Sampler
This pretty monochromatic piece measures 144 x 119. Choose any fabric you like... Sandie's featured thread to match the 7 included micro-button embellishments is Weeks Dye Works #1284 -- Cadet.

Again, rather than a kit format, this is being introduced as a chart with the 7 small buttons. Honestly, price is too high for this just to add to your stash. So... STITCH IT, and it'll feel better on your stitching budget!

    Another cute 101 x 101 design... the letters of the alphabet string across the piece -- but they stop to spell a word or two.

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!)
