Red White Bloom from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more House Trio from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Witch's Brew from Shannon Christine - click to see more Farm Fresh Trees from Shannon Christine - click to see more
Red, White Bloom; House Trio, Witch's Brew and Farm Fresh Trees
Just a few seasonal designs by Shannon Christine... All are offered as charts, everything is coded to DMC. Choose any neutral fabric colors or counts from your stash... sometimes that determines how you'll finish it. Larger 7 and 10 counts lend themselves to pillows, 18/36 looks great made into tiny pin cushions, and brick stand-ups.
We've hit all the seasons with these 4 designs, and as I look at them, I see a tiny 'tea-bag tag' for that Witch's Brew. It's only 58 x 67, so if you stitch it over one on 28 Lugana, you could make a 2 x 2 tag-on-a-string - what a cute Halloween decoration peeking from something!
  • Red White Bloom - 123 x 50 - So 7-1/2 x 3 on 32.
  • House Trio - 143 x 85 - so 9 x 5 on 32.
  • Witch's Brew - Only 58 x 67 - Make that tea Bag Tag at 2 x 2 on 28, or a 3-1-2 inch pincushion on 18/36.
  • Farm Fresh Trees - 70 x 70 - Will make a 4-inch ornament stitched on 18ct perforated paper.

Summer Designs from Erin Eiizabeth Designs
More easy, seasonal designs to stitch in a jiff... all are presented as charts, everything is coded to DMC, and there are lots of ways to break these up into smaller bits for fobs or ornaments, if you don't have time to stitch them all!
  • Garden Shed - Shown against a darker background to make the floss colors pop, the entire design is about 100 stitches square - if you like to finish, you COULD stitch each block of this individually and then make 6 tiny blocks to stack this way!
  • Red & White Smalls and Red White & Blue Smalls - I didn't realize until these came into the shop that the designs are basically the same except for the color key. Get one or the other - the red and white one does still call for some blue in it. Measures 131 x 86 - so the whole thing finishes about 9 x 6 on 14/28ct.
  • Red White & Blue Sampler - A cute little cabin/house with a very festive yard! Measuring 167 x 118 - it's a generous 8 x 12 on 14ct. If you are lucky enough to have a cabin/house like this, it'd be fun to substitute the alphabet for your family name and display this all summer long.

My Sunshine from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Kiss Me from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Fruit Salad from Erin Elizabeth Designs - click to see more Farmhouse Sampler from Erin Elizabeth Designs - click to see more
Several New Designs from Shannon Christine and Erin Elizabeth Designs
  • My Sunshine - A cheerful little design - this measures only 56 x 57 - so only 4 inches on 14ct. If you do a 28ct Lugana over one, you're looking at 2 x 2! Coded for DMC. Just Happy!
  • Kiss Me - This little guy came out too late to get finished for St Pat's Day this year... but there's always NEXT year! Only 39 x 46 - about 3 x 3 on 14ct - there are several good fabric options for this. Cute and bright!
  • Fruit Salad - Gosh, I just LOVE these colors, especially stitched against that deep black background! Fruit Salad lets you use all the bright colors in your 'refrigerator box' of threads... it measures 90 x 90... so will finish about 6-1/2 inches square on 14. It'd make into a bright and festive little cube to perch on your kitchen counter... and none of the fruit will ever spoil like the bowl of fresh!
  • Farmhouse Sampler - This one is by SC's daugher, Erin. Cute, ranch-y looking farmhouse complete with barnyard on the side... you could easily break out that barnyard, and do it individually. Very organized and balanced piece... it's coded for DMC... and finishes 12-1/2 by almost 7.

What's Cracking from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Easter Bunny from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Egg Hunt from Erin Elizabeth Designs - click to see more
What's Cracking, Easter Bunny and Egg Hunt
Shannon Christine and Erin Elizabeth Designs have three colorful new designs to celebrate Spring and Easter! Presented in three separate charts... each is coded for good 'ol regular DMC - and don't they look great?

Choose some pretty pastel fabrics to work these on. (I'm always a fan of adding a little metallic sparkle or beads to patterns like these - Rainbow Gallery has Petite Treasure Braid - metallic - thin as floss, it comes in 90+ colors. RG's Wisper is another furry option - very thin, perfect for 14 aida or 32ct linen stitching.)
What's Cracking measures 75 x 87 - so a mere 4-1/2 x 5-1/2 on 32ct.
Easter Bunny measures 126 x 91 - so 8 x 5-1/2-ish on 32ct.
Egg Hunt measures 63 x 63 - just 4 x 4 on 32ct.


Winter Snow Fun from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Christmas Snow Fun Chart from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more
Christmas & Winter Snow Fun
This is a pair of designs that are actually pretty much the same. Stitch the red and green version if you want it to be Christmas. Do the blue version if you want it to go into January and February.

Both are 96 x 76 - so finish about 5 x 7 on 14ct. The little sections would be smaller, and they'd make cute ornaments, cushions or tiny stand-ups. Coded for DMC, colorful and quick.


Winter Stamps from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Christmas Stamps Chart from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Christmas & Winter Stamps
A pair of coordinating designs... both very small at only 90 x 59 - so 3 x 5 on 18/36ct! Dinky enough for scissor fobs!

Actually, these would be really god on 18ct white perforated paper - then mounted on felt and cut out for small individual ornaments - we're talking like 1-1/2 inches in size - just petite! Use some white Wisper for the fur, Petite Treasure Braid for the opalescent snow, and petite seed beads for glisten!

Jolly Santa from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Holly Jolly Fairies from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Desserts Sampler from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Candy Lane from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more
Jolly Santa, Holly Jolly Fairies, Desserts Sampler and Candy Lane
  • Jolly Santa - Here's a classic Santa getting ready to do one of his favorite things - jumping down your chimney! Beautiful shading, he's coded for DMC... and all the tiny black dots on the digital cover image signify glass beads - for a little extra pop! His sack of toys is detailed and pretty awesome, and the whole thing measures 122 x 137 - so a nice 9 x 10-ish on 14/28ct. Truly a lovely piece to stitch and hang year after year!
  • Holly Jolly Fairies - a trio of tiny fairies - not usually associated with Christmas - these do have poinsettia dresses though! Dancing with gifts, tinsel and glass balls, they are cheerful and sweet. Each fairy measures about 40 x 50 - so just a petite 2-1/2 x 3. Coded for DMC, there are beads and metallics called for as well. The charts are huge, REALLY clear and nice... the backstitching is printed in different colors and the bead placement is highlighted as well. (I wish everyone charted their designs this clearly, she needs to give lessons!)
  • Desserts Sampler - What a fun and colorful piece to stitch! The digital image on the cover is decidedly hard to see properly, but there are pretty shading and backstitch details in these tiny desserts. Stitch one or two singly for a Valentine Treat, stitch a bunch of them and make them into individual cushions for a little sweet bowl... or do the entire piece as is... it measures 86 x 108 - just 5 x 7 on 32ct. Coded for DMC... I'm opting for a bowl of cushions with a few bits of candy nestled in between!
  • Candy Lane - A very festive Gingerbread House! Decorated with Mill Hill beads, it finishes 6 x 7 on 14ct... and would make a cute stand-up.

Snowglobe Club 1 from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Snowglobe Club 2 from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Snowglobe Club 3 from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more Halloween Pals from Shannon Christine Designs - click to see more
Snowglobe Club 1, 2 & 3, Hallwoween Pals
  • The Snowglobe Series - This is a colorful trio of whimsical designs that look striking on a black background - but truthfully would probably be cute on several other lighter background options. The main globe designs measure 56 stitches square - so finish just 3-1/2 inches in size on 32ct. The smaller companion designs on each measure just 30 x 40 - so super dinky! Less than 2 x 3! Everything is coed for DMC... but I think a little opalescent or sparkly beads on them might add a little extra pizz-azz!
  • Halloween Pals sports a very retro/antique/vintage look. The little cat and pumpkin people measure just 27 x 60 - so only 1-1/2 x 3-3/4! Both are in the same chart - coded for DMC

The Santa's Sweet Shop Set
This is a fun set of designs - get just the ones you like, or stitch them all. Make the two signs little stand-ups to go under the tree (in case there are no presents under there!) and then the 4 littles as tree ornaments.
All are charted individually, coded for DMC and need to be done on something that will let the white be highlighted. Lots of shading in these little guys...
Santa's Sweet Shop Sign measures 98 x 96 - 6 x 6 on 32ct.
Donut Peek measures 60 x 79 - 3-3/4 x 5 on the same 32ct.
Sweet Shop Owner and 3 Customers are all 50 x 50 - so just 3 x 3 on 32ct!


Winter Chickadee from Erin Elizabeth Designs - click to see more Winter Fox from Erin Elizabeth Designs - click to see more Winter Owl from Erin Elizabeth Designs - click to see more
Winter Chickadee, Winter Fox & Winter Owl from Erin Elizabeth Designs
Three New winter Babies by Erin Elizabeth Designs... even though the chart covers are shown with digital images... you can tell they'll be really pretty when stitched. Each measures 89 x 89 in stitch count and is coded for DMC. Erin doesn't suggest fabric, so the covers hint at a dusty blue or wintery-gray color. You choose color and count - on 16/32, these will be about 5-1/2 inches square.

Winter Owl calls for 34 shades of DMC, Fox uses 41, and Chickadee needs 33! The charts are not in color, so there is a lot happening in them with all the color changes... but lots of visual impact in your little 5-inches when you are finished!


Easter Designs by Erin Eiizabeth
Wow... great designs for each holiday -- all are coded for regular DMC floss, and each is presented in chart format.

Esther & You Crack Me Up! - So darn cute...
  • Esther measures 63 x 82 - so will finish about 4 x 5 on 32ct. She'd be pretty on lots of different cheerful fabric colors, and you could even leave off the Happy Easter wording and make her into a bunny face plant poke! Just charming!
  • You Crack Me Up needs to be stitched and finished into a brick-style stand-up block. So sweet, it's coded for DMC, but those eggs wouldn't mind some metallic touches! Measuring 120 x 51 - this'll finish just 7-1/2 inches long and 3 inches high on 32ct.

  • Jeweled Elephant - This is just like our Jeweled Owl! Quite the elegant little guy, he is stitched with DMC, and garnished all over the place with glass beads. He measures 112 x 93 - so about 6 x 8 on 14/28ct. (You need that size of the fabric to fit the beads.)
