Stacy Nash Sisters Three Pinkeep -- click to see more Sisters Three Pinkeep
from Stacy Nash
Here's a sweet piece -- finished into a small pin cushion pillow. Stitch count is 51 x 64, making it finish approx 3 x 4 on 32ct. With the bit of homespun finishing fabric, the overall pillow will be 4 x 6-ish.

Worked in Gentle Art's Brethren Blue, Straw Bonnet and Apple Cider, it will make a nice addition to your basket of stuffed cushions! (Note: the stitch count and finished size is mis-quoted on the instructions... be advised when you cut your fabric. Doesn't hurt the design... just confuses you a bit!)

Stacy Nash Thistles & Spells Pinkeep -- click to see more Thistles & Spells Pinkeep
from Stacy Nash
Another eerie graveyard scene this design finishes approx 8 x 9 on 32ct Tin Roof. Huge for a pin keep, small for a pillow.

It really coordinates with the Potions, Mourning tree and Pumpkin Harvest piece.

Stacy Nash Turkey Hollow Farm -- click to see more Turkey Hollow Farm - Part of the Houses of Berry's Chapel Road
from Stacy Nash
Another fun farmhouse scene by Stacy, this features an un-even border of Autumn flowers -- with a spindly vine on the left side. You have pumpkins still growing in the garden, but the farmer and his dog might be coming to check on the excited turkeys and leaving the pumpkins alone.

Finishing approx 13 x 10-1/2 on 36ct Weeks Beige Linen, this calls for Weeks threads of Gunmetal, Palomino, Twilight, Hazelnut, Tiger's Eye, Schneckley, Dolphin, Havana, Straw, Loden and Whiskey. When you stitch the house, work the front in horizontal lines of the Whiskey -- then do the side -- that way your thread variations will form the corner of the building.

Stacy Nash Cat & Mouse Pinkeeps & Slipper -- click to see more Cat & Mouse Pinkeeps & Slipper
from Stacy Nash
Stacy Nash has a few new designs, the finishing on this one is fun and different. Worked on week's 30ct Cocoa linen in only 4 shades of floss, the main cat pillow measures approx 6 x 8, the pinkeep is 3-1/2 inches square and the cute little slipper is only 1-1/2 x 5-1/2!

It's a cute set... and if you do nothing else... LOVE that little slipper... and finish some other designs that way! What a fun piece to tuck into a basket of finished pin cushions!

Stacy Nash Wool & Flax Pocket Roll -- click to see more Stacy Nash Wool & Flax Pocket Roll -- click to see more Wool & Flax Pocket Roll
from Stacy Nash
One of 2 new designs... She seeketh wool and flax and worketh willingly with her hands. From Proverbs, this is one of the characteristics of the virtuous woman.

Finishing about 10 x 23 on 32 ct, with Gentle Arts fibers... Stacy made hers into a pocket roll, but it looks very worthy of a frame, too. Stacy even gives instructions for aging the fabric to make it look even more antique.

Freedom Needle Book -- click to see more Freedom Needle Book
Wow... I love that shallow bowl with the berry vines spilling out from it! Add a blowing flag and a noisy crow... very classic!

Stacy Nash Summer Gathering Pinkeep Drum, Slipper and Strawberry -- click to see more Summer Gathering Pinkeep Drum, Slipper and Strawberry
Oh, I love this set! The stand-up drum measures 4-1/2 inches high by 3, slipper is 5-1/2 x 2-1/2, and berry tucks inside -- like a little foot -- 3-1/2 x 2. Stitched on Weeks 35ct Parchment linen in just a few Sampler Threads, this is just really a unique little set of smalls.

You'll want some neat wools for the slipper and berry finishing - Stacy uses homespun cotton for the top of the drum.

Stacy Nash Malabar Farm Pinkeep -- click to see more
Malabar Farm Pinkeep
A peacock and flower urn... pretty classic! Generous in size, this finishes almost 8 x 8... stitched on 30ct Week's Straw linen.

Mary's Work Sampler Bag -- click to see more
Mary's Work Sampler Bag
This is stitched on a 32ct linen with Classic Colorworks hand-dyed cottons. Change the Mary part to your name... Stacy has this finished as a bag, lined with more linen and backed with homespun fabric... but I am not sure where the opening is!

I think you can get creative with this finishing. Finished stitching measures approx 13 x 7..

Hooray for the Red, White & Blue
A sweet little patriotic piece, this finishes only 5 x 6 on 32ct. Presented as the chart, you get the star embellishment in with the chart.

*Fireworks and cookouts parades and sparklers -- it's always inspiring and fun* Pam and Susan send Happy 4th Of July Thoughts!!! I think this would be cute if you left off the bottom row of people and dogs... you're already delivering a pretty good message here!

Hooray for the Red, White & Blue from Praiseworthy Stitches - click for more
Rooks' Feast
This is a tribute to Autumn, and the garden harvest... as favored by the Rook!!! Kind of a Quaker feel to this... the Pumpkin square says *Pompion* which is the colonial word for pumpkin!

The squash, corn and pumpkins are all Mr Rook's absolute favorites... and they fit into this 7 x 6 piece stitched on Weeks 30ct Cocoa Linen.

The Stitcher's Diary for 2023

So, along with her preview of designs coming... this offers the monthly calendar pages, and several pages at the end to log special projects, and your needlework-related notes!

You can see from my pics that this book can hang like a traditional wall calendar if you like, but I think it'd be really happy stuffed into your daily stitch tote to help keep you organized! I have some of the inside pictures when you click through the images. Isabelle printed a sticker-sheet of tiny vintage images - so you can decorate your pages and dates a little. This would make a lovely stitcher-friend gift - but get one for YOU too!

Depending on the size of your might be able to get away with turning this into a Christmas ornament... sewn OR on the hornbook! Offered as a chart.

Mouse and Owl join, Kitty, Puppy, 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.

Surrey House Sampler from Rosewood Manor - click for more Surrey House Sampler
What a pretty antique-y-feeling piece! A delicate floral basket beneath a very Victorian alphabet... the fabric is of special note with this piece. See the 'wallpaper lines' in the 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.

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!)

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!

Embroidery Christmas from Nikyscreations - click to see more
Embroidery Christmas
Nikki-from-Italy has a darling new little piece - a 100-stitch square of Christmas motifs with a stitching theme. Choose any fabric you like - on 40 over 2 this will finish 5 x 5 - and 7 x 7 on 14.

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.*

Tiny scissors, threaded needles and spools, it'd make a cute needle case and fob set I think -- if you can finish a little creatively!

Seasonal Band Sampler from Nikyscreations Seasonal Band Sampler
Kind of a fun design composition .. . the four seasonal houses all stacked up... the balanced motifs on either side... and the little thin bottom borders.

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

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!

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 & 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.
