Acts of Kindness Pinkeep
Isn't this a sweet thing? A small 3-1/2 x 5 cushion, it is stitched with either DMC or hand-dyeds.

Gentle Art Simply Wools would be awesome on this as well - make those bunnies a little furry. Can you see that tiny bunny on there bringing the big rabbit the tulip? Offered as a chart.

Little Berry Thief
This is a sweet berry-shaped pin cushion with a little brown bird nibbling his precious and ripe strawberry. Stitched on 36ct Vintage Country Mocha linen with regular ol' DMC of B5200, 221, 869, 3011 and 3799... it finishes about 3-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches in size.

The chart includes an actual-sized template for the fabric size, and another for the green leaf top. Make that from vintage fabric or some wool. I like that Feather Stitching on the backside, too; it closes your berry!

  • Miss Matilda is quite the chubby little kitty, just sitting there watching over her pumpkin. She measures 70 x 70 in stitch count. Now, notice the little stuffed pumpkin! Choose a 28/30/32 ct fabric - beads are used in place of the black stitches on the chart (but you could just do floss), and she has gathered the top and bottom together to stuff it! Cute as can be!
  • Pure in Heart - Just a sweet and quiet sheep underneath a classic alphabet - the top border and flower basket add a lot of color and softness. Finishes a generous 8-1/2 x 6 on 32ct Platinum.

Scattered Seed Samplers has a new design that offers a neat finishing idea for some of the other charts-in-waiting in your stash! Designed to be a pin cushion to hang over the arm of your stitching chair, *Busy hands, happy heart* decorates one side, and *Hand and heart will never part* decorates the other.

Charted for only 4 colors of DMC -- 221, 3011, 3790 and 3799, you'll need to choose cushion finishing fabric (and maybe change floss colors) to match your furniture. Simple finishing instructions are included with the chart for the 4-1/2 x 12 overall project. It would make a really nice gift for a stitching friend, and maybe a super-cool finishing idea for a smaller pin cushion exchange thing! (Wouldn't some small Lizzie Kate or Just Nan designs be cute on this??? If you are super-gifted you could even make a pocket on one side of this for scissors!)

A Token of Spring
A Sweet set of three 'panels' surround this 4-1/2 inch high drum that is 3-1/2 inches in finished diameter. Just 9 shades of regular DMC floss, there are instructions in here for tea staining as well as the drum assembly process.

Simple bluebirds and two different urn designs, a very pretty presentation on a shelf in front of a sampler.

More sweet birds on a pin cushion top, I actually like the finishing on this at least as much as the stitching! What a pretty edging treatment, so you don't need trim!

Stitching measures just 4 x 4... using this edge treatment... you could even make this as a 'mattress bottom' to a special basket. (You know -- the one you are slowly filling with all your stitched pin cushions which are fashionable to call *Bowl Fillers!*) Coded for just 6 colors of DMC.
