Celebrate Summer the Shepherd's Bush Way
Tina and Teri have sent three new things!
  • My Home Sweet Home is a little 6 x 8-ish design complete with patriotic sheep guarding the homesteads. All the busy-ness in the sky looks like fireworks! Presented as a kit, it is stitched on 32ct Country French Cafe Mocha Linen with Weeks hand-dyed flosses, and includes a few bitty button embellishments as well.
  • Let Freedom Bloom is this season's 3-inch pin cushion design. Joining the million others from Tina and Teri - they all look charming nestled together in a basket. You'll need to add this one to your collection! Presented in kit format, it is worked on 32ct Natural Linen with Weeks overdyed flosses. The kit includes the linen, flosses, button embellishments and the specially-for-this hand-dyed chenille trim by Lady Dot Creates.
  • Bee Trifles - Three bee-themed cushions, each is worked on different colors of linen. Cute and summery... there are buttons scattered here and there, that come separately from the pattern.

New Designs... we had room for only three of there here to show you... so scroll down to see all the rest of them and read all their details!
  • Happy Life Pin Cushion - A sweet heart-shaped 3 x 4-ish cushion, this is stitched on 32ct Country French Linen with Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed flosses. Trimmed with Lady Dot hand-dyed chenille - you get that in the kit along with the celery-green polka dot backing fabric they featured. The clay pin set if offered separately, but the button embellishments are included with the kit. Very pretty!
  • Snow Queen - This is another annual Snowman - only she is a SHE! Worked on Week's hand-dyed linen (I think it's Kudzu) this finishes approx 5 x 6, and features quite a different color palette for Tina and Teri. This is gorgeous combination of olive greens, taupe, cream, gold metallic and gold seed beads. VERY STRIKING! Complete kit contains the chart, fabric, threads and embellishments.
  • Stitching Notes - A single chart design, this is enchanting to us stitchers! It's just a wisp of a design... full of our 'vocabulary' of needle, backstitch, sampler, wool... in between itty bitty motifs. Worked on 32ct, it finishes ONLY 3 x 4-1/2... so it'd make a darling pin cushion, or a small needle case... there are three tiny take-outs in the picture too... more cute ideas for this.
Tis A Gift from Shepherd's Bush - click for a larger view

Tis A Gift
A charming brick house perched on a grassy hill... there are 4 sheep there in the yard... a little softer brown to blend with the gentle, quiet colors in this. Finishing approx 5 x 8 on 32ct, this complete kit comes with hand-dyed silks and asst Weeks Dye Works and even 2 DMC flosses, along with a trio of tiny button embellishments. Tina threw in a couple of specialty stitches -- you can see them in the bottom bands.

We like all the *parts* to this! Divide it up in your head... just the top part as a cushion... just the house and trees, just the sheep on the hill, just that little pot and bee down at the bottom... there are lots of charming parts to this! Complete kit of chart, linen, threads and embellishments.

La Vita e Bella from Shepherd's Bush - click for a larger view

La Vita e Bella
A sweet little design presented in single chart format, this finishes approx 3 x 5, stitched with asst hand-dyeds on 32ct.

A few Satin and Rice stitches... here is another of Tina and Teri's designs that my eye can divide into little pin cushions for a really cool big bowl! I see that cute little hill picture all by itself!

Spring Peeps Box Kit from Shepherd's Bush - click for a larger view Lucky Treasure Box Kit from Shepherd's Bush - click for a larger view
Lucky Treasure Box & Spring Peeps Box Kits
Little Bitty designs, these each measure only 26 x 39 stitches... so in doing the math you'll get less than 2 x 3. But if you go over one on something easy to see - like 28ct Jobelan, you're going to get a teeny 1 x 1-1/2 piece!!!!!!

Complete kit of chart, hand-dyed flosses and a needle... these are really great for a new stitcher to begin with. Cute and finish-able for them. Resin boxes are separate.

Ewe Are Forever In My Heart from Shepherd's Bush - click for a larger view

Ewe Are Forever In My Heart
The Spring 2019 pin cushion kit that features a pretty hand-made clay embellishment is here. Worked on 18ct white linen with floss, the complete kit contains the chart, linen, flosses, beads and silk ribbon for the edge trimming treatment, that charming clay heart and the backing fabric.

The mat shown in the pic is an alternative finishing treatment to the 3 x 4 pin cushion.

Tina and Teri are sending packages our way... full of Christmas Presents!!!
  • Rejoice, Rejoice - A sweet pin cushion design full of sugarplum lavenders and pretty pinks, and shepherdess angel tends her flock of tiny sheep... all nestled on a hill overlooking the tiny village of Bethlehem. Very pretty, it matches so many of their annual stocking motifs! Finishes approx 4 x 4, complete kit contains 32ct linen, hand-dyed flosses and a teeny star button; Just Another Button Company has a special Pin set to garnish this - a candle, star and roundel, all in coordinating colors - available separately.
  • Merry Notes - This 5 x 6 series continues with Santa in his sleigh flying over a tiny sleeping village... only the little snowman below knows he's there! Look at it... you might even split the design, and make two smaller ornaments out of it... the village as one, and the Santa, holly and words as another! Presented as a chart with 12+ buttons in the official button packet. (We are offering the chart with buttons, to make your life easier!)
  • Have Ewe Any Wool? Another darling pin cushion-sized design, this one comes as a kit of 18ct natural linen, hand-dyed threads and a precious matching-and-very-hand-made clay stocking cap button.

Finishing 3 x 3 on 32ct Mocha linen, with a smattering of hand-dyed flosses from your stash, there are some buttons that come with this - featured in the holly border - and I speculate that the chenille outside trim (available separately) is Lady Dot's Mossy color.

If you like, you can glue the little guy to the top of a bitty sled instead. JOY is the same way... more cute paper and something cute and colorful to stitch. All of Shepherd's Bush's Gift Tags (we have several others for Christmas, Valentines and Halloween farther down the page) come with the chart, both papers, a button, and hanging ribbons or string.

    Gratitude Sampler from Shepherd's Bush - click for a larger view Gratitude Sampler
    *Joys and Blessings, Faith and Friendship, Love and Gratitude*
    Shepherd's Bush has a new sampler that is really more like a trio of small pastoral scenes than rows and rows of stitches and alphabets. Finishing approx 8 x 15 on 32ct hand-dyed Sea Salt linen, this is stitched in 20 different shades of hand-dyed silks -- and is mainly worked in Cross Stitch. There are small areas of Tall Cross Stripe, Satins, Darning and Herringbone... but mostly regular crosses. The silk colors are luscious -- you can see all the pretty greens in the rolling hills, and the lavenders in the Darning sections between the scenes.

    A very quaint and classic Shepherd's Bush feel to this piece, stitch it as one, or break it up into sections. Offered as the complete kit, there is so much silk in here... I bet it actually weighs something on our shipping scale! Lovely! Tina and Teri present Peace and Plenty and their Harmony Fob as companions to this sampler.

    Another of Tina and Terri's small pin cushion designs, this one features a rose-tendril border surrounding the skinny house and floral basket. Stitched on 32ct hand-dyed Sea Salt linen (matches the Gratitude Sampler), this one is stitched on cotton hand-dyed flosses rather than silks. The threads are yummy roses and greens... embellishments include a smattering of tiny flower buttons and a multitude of matte black glass beads to work the soft, antiqued rose rouched ribbon edge treatment.

    These always finish approx 3 x 3... and are wonderful when filled with crushed walnut shells or plastic pellets. Use something with a bit of weight... it makes the soft linen even more soft and old feeling. Complete kit of chart, linen, ribbon, beads, and flosses. Cute!
