TAG
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!

Stitching and Quilting Party
Wouldn't this be a totally fun day??? One of Sara Guermani's larger landscape scenes -- measuring approx 17 inches square on 32ct -- everyone is having a wonderful time stitching and quilting... the houses all match... the animals are all happy, the landscape is organized and varied... it's just a fun little scene!

Coded for millions of colors of DMC (well only 32), the chart includes a 3/4 inch square wooden button with the classic house design on it. It's the 'quilt' on the far right hanging on the clothesline close to the center of the piece.

Halloween
Another of Sara's 'landscape' scenes... Halloween measures about 17 inches square on 32ct -- the same as all her other scenes. This one -- just like all the rest -- has great smaller motif areas you can grab out and stitch individually, but together, this gives you a busy scene full of great color, lots to see, and charming design elements.

The ghosts are neat, the little cauldron at the bottom is kind of fun, LOVE that messy spider web in the tree, and actually that moon in the upper corner is neat with leaves in front of it. Coded for DMC floss, the chart comes with 4 wooden buttons -- a ghost, bat, spider body and scared cat. SUPER cute!

Christmas Avenue's Toy Shop
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!

Preparativi
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!



Autumn Sampler by Sara Guermani - click for more Summer Sampler by Sara Guermani - click for more Summer & Autumn Samplers
These are charming medleys of all sorts of scenes, motifs, and memories of the Summer and Autumn seasons. By Italian artist Sara Guermani, each is presented in chart format and designs measure 278 x 263 in stitch count. That makes them 14-ish inches square on 40ct or 19-1/2 on 28/14ct. You can choose any fabric and count you like, though, AND stitch ANY or ALL parts of each piece.

Charted for DMC floss, there are little villages and animals all over the place... and you can see how the little sections would be fun to break up and stitch individually to make smaller cushions. You could make a whole bundle of bitty things to nestle in a basket... or make a larger statement for your walls.


Primavera in Provenza by Sara Guermani - click for more Estate in Toscana by Sara Guermani - click for more Estate in Toscana (Summer in Tuscany) & Primavera in Provenza (Spring in the Provence)
Every year, I look at these charming stitched models on the walls of a vendor's booth at the spring wholesale trade show. They are lovely... (but kind of pricey)... and since I can't GO to France or Italy, I sigh and buy just a smidge and move on. This year, however, The Silver Needle IS going to Provence... so I am elated! I finally have an excuse to HAVE these!!!!!

Lovely landscape scenes by Italian artist Sara Guermani, they are presented as charts and coded for DMC floss. Both measure exactly 278 x 263 in stitch count -- work them on any fabric you want to! What could be lovelier that Spring in the Provence Lavender Fields, or that lovely *little* Summer Tuscan estate? YOUR WALLS... because you've stitched these for them!!! Regular X's... bits of French Knots and a little backstitch.


Inverno Sulle Alpi by Sara Guermani - click for more Autunno La Vendemmia by Sara Guermani - click for more Autunno: La Vendemmia (Autumn in Provence) & Inverno Sulle Alpi (Winter in the Alps)
Two more charming scenes -- again measuring 278 x 263 each, coded for DMC flosses. If you work these on 32ct, they'll finish approx 17 x 16 -- quite generous in size.

Regular Crosses, with a few French Knots and bits of backstitch. Just lovely... imagine a spectacular custom framing treatment on them... mmm!
