'Early Primitive patterns... Stitcheries wrought by my hand. Each piece is a reminder of earlier, simpler times.'
This is a collection of charts for sewing rolls, pockets and bags, pin cushions and pin drums, slipper pin cushions... a delightful assortment of needlework smalls. VERY primitive in design flavor, each chart includes complete finishing and assembly instructions and staining information using Stacy's Walnut Crystals.
Deck the Coop Pinkeep
Well, nothing wrong with hanging Christmas lights on the chicken coop in the backyard!
Grab a cut of your favorite neutral linen and some Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed flosses of Schneckley, Cocoa, Sanguine, Tin Roof, Grits, Oscar, Red Rocks, Lily Pad and Charcoal...and stitch this cute pinkeep. It'll finish a generous 7 x 7-1/2 on 40ct!
Stacy Nash has several Market Releases!
Charming Hand-Poured Thread Waxers by Taylor! We're treating ourselves to these this year... Little life-sized Strawberries and Raspberries!
Beautiful little 'things' to adorn or use... waxers are 100% pure Beeswax. You can gently run your threads over the wax to straighten and strengthen before you stitch... or just have these tiny berries as pretty decorations on shelves, fobs, pin cushion adornments, zipper pulls... you get the idea. Over time, beeswax waxers will develop a natural 'bloom' which looks like a film on the surface. It can easily be removed with a hair dryer on high heat - for JUST a few seconds! Some like that patina, some don't... so you have care options here!
Stacy suggests using the natural colored waxers to help condition any colors of threads, but says that the red and black waxes are better suited for darker threads. While the wax will not 'bleed or melt' onto your threads and fabrics, it's better to store the red and black pieces away from light fabrics... just in case. We have tiny raspberries and strawberries... some are on metal lobster clasps to attach to your scissors or tote or whatever; some have silk ribbons to tie, but all have a glorious metal decorative topper piece. Taylor has been busy pouring!
First Snowfall Pinkeep and Butternut House Pinkeep
A pair of charming pin cushion designs, these are actually on the large side, which makes them a fun surprise stuffed and tucked into your bowl of 'fillers.' They are finally back in stock again after waiting months for them to arrive!
Rose Cottage Sampler Pinkeep and Holly Basket Sewing Roll
Stacy Nash has more neat designs that have just released...
Be Kind Sampler
Be kind to one another, this is a world of care and there is enough of needful woe for every one to bear. An old verse with Stacy's new border design and big house.
Finishes about 8 x 10 - probably 36ct Weeks Cocoa - and it uses Weeks hand-dyed cottons of Oscar, Baked Apple, Battleship, Cherub, Charcoal, Straw, Oilcloth, Confederate Gray and Sanguine.
Pin Disks... Two-sided pin storage pieces!
These ovals are stitched on both sides, the floral urn on the front and a smaller design on the back, then joined together, wrapped with silky hand-dyed rayon ribbon.
Included in the charts are the two cardboard oval cut-outs and the silky-rayon ribbon. Measuring 3 x 4 in size, after you glue the two wrong sides together and wrap with the ribbon, then add some cool pins.
Stacy Nash Primitives has Several New Designs
Animal Crackers and Crumbs
This is an ever-growing set of charming stitched stand-up animals and smaller animal face fobs -- all presented as separate charts. Each is stitched on hand-dyed linen -- various colors -- choose any count you want. On 32 the CRACKER stand-ups finish approx 3 x 7-ish... Harrison is 10-1/2 inches though because of his ears. Cute and very vintage, decorate each with old ribbons and buttons... The smaller ANIMAL CRACKER CRUMBS are the little faces and they're all around 3 inches in size.
How fun to tuck a couple of them into your ever-growing basket of stitched pin cushions???? Then add a couple of the standing ones in there too! Stacy has plain fabrics on the backs with a pouch to hold scissors, and you can see that Theodore is wearing a little thimble pouch as well! Such a neat set we have now!!!!
Fresh Picked Pinkeep and Mary's Garden Needle Book & Fob
Here are two designs by Stacy Nash. The Fresh Picked cushion finishes approx 7 x 10 on 36ct - pretty generous in size - it uses regular DMC of 730,. 371, 3721, 3859 and 3031.
The Mary's Garden piece has some creative finishing to it. You get the little fob pattern - pretty normal, but the Needle Book features a 2-3/4 x 4 inch oval piece is stitched on both sides, and ties onto the flat backing piece. That's a really neat way to display and enjoy multiple coordinating pieces I think! It's mounted to the front of an old book, but you could make a fabric-covered board, and attach your ties to that. Gives your work color around the edges without adding trims - a super-easy way to finish!
Sister Sampler Pinkeep, Dark Horse Pinkeep Drum and Manor House Sewing Roll
Three more delights - all with different finishing treatments...
Sister Sampler Pinkeep - This one is stitched on two different colors of linen - and then joined into one cushion. Cornsilk on the left, Straw on the right... see what you have in your stash for this. Pretty Weeks hand-dyed flosses - this features delightful floral urns and flowers... check out the bird in the next and the beehive! Finishes a huge 15 x 6!
1806 Manor House Sewing Roll - This is very pretty! Put your closure ribbon at either end - depending on what you want to show when this is rolled up. (But maybe you want to display it open like in the pic? Finished size is 7-1/2 x 15... I like all the design elements she's featured!
Gathering the Greens Sampler
This measures 8-1/2 x 13 on 35ct Weeks Confederate Gray linen. Using Parchment, Havana, Garrison green, Bee's Knees, Oscar, Conch, Brick, Charcoal, Cinnabar and Grape Vine, it's actually very colorful.
The house is charming, the border is pretty... downright perky for Stacy Nash!!! The garden bushes are cool... and the lady of the house is tending to them. (Sorry we don't have a better model image for this one... we aren't doing it justice.))
Berry Basket Sewing Tray & Quaker Sewing Tray
Stacy Nash has two new designs that finish approx 3 x 6. She has presented them in small 3 x 6-ish inch black primitive trays... but doesn't give a supply source for the trays! So.... be on the lookout at some place like Hobby Lobby for a plain wooden finishing piece you can paint and wax... or redefine your finishing options.
Both of these designs feature companion pin wheel pokes and stuffed strawberries that are either crushed velvet or stitching on linen. The wheelies would be fun cushions, the berries already are, and if you left off the initials and corner festoons on the one, both tray designs could be cute little cushions as well. Just nice designs, they are coded for just a few shades of Gentle Art Sampler Threads -- their Simply Wool would be a fun alternative, too! (just popped into my mind!)
Boo Sewing Basket and Seek Goodness Pinkeep Drum
Stacy Nash has two new offerings...
Summer House Pinkeep
This finishes into a generous 5-1/2 x 7-/12 inch pin cushion! Stitched on 36ct Natural linen with Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Apple Cider, Freedom, Straw Bonnet, Carriage Black, Chives and Cranberry.
I like the uneven border all around. It adds to the primitive feel of this. Instructions included for age-staining when you are finished.
Be Kind & True Thread Keep
Be Kind & True Thread Keep -- On 30ct Ivory, this finishes approx 7 x 5, and is worked with only Apple Cider, Garden Gate, Barn Grey and Mulberry flosses! I like how she's cut off the house -- you don't see that very often, and I guess it really DOES cut down the stitching time! So pretty, the model in the pic has been coffee-distressed.
Boxwood Manor Sewing Book & Thread Keep
The repeating pattern of the brown bricks with the creamy mortar, then the white mullions in the windows... they mimic the basket pattern... and make everything look so organized in this.
5 x 7 Book and 4 x 6 Keep... just a few hand-dyeds on Week's 35ct Parchment linen. These would make substantial 'bowl fillers'... very pretty!
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!
Stitched on Weeks 30ct Linen, you are using only Gentle Art Threads of Linen, Endive, Cranberry, Brethren blue and Garden Gate to stitch this 4 x 7-ish piece! Another cute bowl-filler, too!
Lets Meet at the Garden Gate Pin Keep
The little girl of the house wants to make friends... meet her at the Garden Gate... her little dog is coming along, she has a flower, and maybe you're having berries from the garden for lunch!
Finishing approx 9-1/2 x 4-1/2 on 32 Cream Belfast, this piece has been MAJORLY distressed by coffee, tea, dirt or something really fun to make it look so old and well-loved!
Mary Bovee Sampler
This is GORGEOUS in person! The cover picture really doesn't show the yummy gray/taupe colors of this fabric, and you don't often see pieces like this stitched on a darker linen. Stitched on Picture This Plus 32ct Murky Linen, it uses Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Apple Cider, Caramel Corn, Carriage Black, Antique Rose, Lambswool, Rose Garden and Old Hickory.
Finishing approx 10-1/2 x 8, it has a pretty floral border, double berry baskets and the most awesome house, running rabbit and huge urn along the bottom. Offered as a chart.
Spotted Pigs Pinkeep
How cute are these little pigs???! Mama and the babies, they are stitched on the same fabric as Mary Bovee (so if you get a fat quarter of it, it's a better price) -- Picture This Plus's 32ct Murky.
Finishing a generous 10 x 7, it's kind of large for a pin keep, but do it anyway, and enjoy! Gentle Art Threads of Carriage Black, Apple Cider, Lambswool, Antique Rose and Rose Garden -- the same ones as Bovee!!
32ct Dirty Belfast, this finishes approx 8 x 6. Sampler Threads of Carriage Black, Straw Bonnet, Endive, and Gingersnap. Just a cute little thing, get some neat ball fringe or our chenille for edging.
We have an awesome collection of Dames of the Needle's hand-dyed velvet for backing as well.... maybe you'd like some of that?
I like the colors in this -- 32ct Charcoal linen with Sampler Threads of Old Red Paint, Straw Bonnet and Chamomile -- it's a simple design that finishes approx 8-1/2 x 5-1/2.
Consider using Simply Wool for the sheep -- add a little fuzz!
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..
Peacock in the Pumpkin Patch PinKeep
A cute little Stacy Nash design, grab an 11 x 19 cut of Week's Dye Works 32ct Parchment Linen and Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Apple Cider, Gingersnap, Woodrose, Straw Bonnet, Garden Gate and Lexington Green to make this actually-rather-large 5-1/2 x 13-1/2 inch pin keep.
The penny rug border treatment along the bottom is kind of fun because it is very irregular. Something to nestle into your basket of cushions!! Offered as a chart.
Midnight in the Strawberry Garden Stacy Nash has several new designs -- 6 of them deal with animals -- so I've collected them all together on her inside page! Meanwhile, I really liked this Thread Board idea, and LOVE the colors she used. A 5 x 7 board with charming stitching on one side, along with a scissor pouch and ruler pocket on the other... it features mother-of-pearl thread rings along the bottom to organize your working threads.
Strawberry Garden is worked on Week's 35ct Dolphin Linen with Gentle Art Sampler Threads. Choose 2 more Schnigglet cuts of Week's woolens for the inside and pocket pieces (we have a million choices with that)... you can recognize the Kelmscott pearl rings and ruler as well. (A neat finishing idea, you know... what's to stop you from taking a small motif from a favorite piece you are working on now... stitch and assemble it like this -- add some of the left-over threads from that piece, and display this right next to that finished piece???) This is offered as a chart.
Spotted Chickens Sewing Bag and Pinkeep
I LOVE those chickens!!! The linen bag finishes approx 8 x 7, the cushion 10 x 4-1/2. Worked on Week's 36ct Confederate Gray with Gentle Art Sampler Threads, Stacy gives sources for the hand-dyed velvet and silk ribbons she uses for finishing.
I think the design on the bag would be stunning stitched on a piece of linen, and hemmed into a kitchen towel! THEN, the more you use it... the more mangy and old an authentic it becomes!!!
Squirrel Pinkeep and Flower Basket Thread Boards
OK.. back to the finishing of the Midnight Strawberry Garden piece! A 5 x 7 board, woolens for the backside, mother-of-pearl thread rings jutting from one side, you could even use matching velvet for that backing -- just like on your 4 x 10 pin cushion. Kind of a skinny squirrel... I guess he's found his Autumn snack, so he'll fatten up for the winter!
Gorgeous GAST colors of Chamomile, Picnic Basket, Woodrose, and Endive, fabric of choice is 36ct Weeks Beige.
Primrose Farm Sewing Basket and Heart Pinkeep
Stacy has covered a plain paper mache 5 x 7 oval box with her farmhouse and horse scene. (So it's technically not a basket at all!!!) Stitched on Week's 36ct Beige linen with Gentle Art Sampler Threads, she includes instructions for assembly.
She's simply done something else with the box lid... and lined with with wool and fabrics. Colors featured are Straw Bonnet, Chamomile, Woodrose, Apple Cider, Picnic Basket, Rose Garden and Carriage Black.
Miss Baxter's House
Oh, everyone loves this cement and log cabin house -- it's quite large, and together with that border will give you LOTS of hours of stitching. Worked on Week's 32ct Beige, the little chickens in the yard are SUPER SPECTACULAR! They are shaped well and stitched in dusty blues and a deep red. If nothing else... make fobs or cushions out of those only!!! Stitch count of 221 x 186, this finishes approx 12 x 14. Love it!
Pumpkin Harvest Pinkeep
Another cute chicken, this finishes 8 x 13 on 35ct Confederate Gray linen.
A lot of stitching in that house... save that part for a time when you don't want to have your chart with you to keep up with -- just mindless, relaxing repetitive stitching!!!
Mourning Tree Sewing Bag
Ok... this goes a little stranger into the *why* factor! I'm not sure I would want Ebenezer and his casket to be remembered on my wall... but the tree is neat, and the bag is cool... so I can adapt!
32Ct Weeks Tin Roof... finishing instructions for the bag are included. 11-1/2 x 12-1/2 in size.
Thistles & Spells Pinkeep
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.
Sisters Three Pinkeep
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!)
Turkey Hollow Farm - Part of the Houses of Berry's Chapel Road
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.
Halloween at Hollyberry Farm
Another of Stacy's grand farmhouses dressed for the season, this one does look kind of empty, desolate and creepy! I guess because the resident witch is out in the yard *grilling!* The alphabet spells out BOO, and there are some great design elements -- like that spindly fence and the burial urn in the landscaping as well.
Stitched on 35ct hand-dyed linen, this finishes quite large at 16 x 23. Worked in only 7 colors of Gentle Art Sampler Threads, Stacy has distressed her work even more after the stitching was finished to give it an even eerier feel! Offered as a chart.
Summer at Hollyberry Farm
What a fun place this would be to live! A pretty border of berries surrounds the cursive alphabet but the real showpieces in here are the house and flag! Look at the roofs on the main house and porch. Stacy has stitched diamond shapes in there first, with hand-dyed thread, and then gone back and filled in the areas. You can really see the hint of shingles.
Yummy colors of Gentle Art Sampler Threads -- Apple Cider, Country Redwood, Walnut, Oatmeal, Old Blue Paint and lots of other soft browns. Stitch count is 285 x 224 so on 35ct Old Mill Java, which is called for, this will finish approx 13 x 16. Offered as the chart, this will look really nice on most any brownish colored linen -- stay away from yellow undertones.
Cat & Mouse Pinkeeps & Slipper
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!
My Stitching Book
Measuring approx 6 x 14, this is worked on hand-dyed linen in Gentle Art's Pomegranate, Apple Cider, Chamomile, Straw Bonnet, Walnut and Lexington Green.
When you fold it closed... the urn of flowers is folded in half -- so you see it on both the front and the back. Offered as the chart.
Christmas at Hollyberry Farm
Stacy Nash has sent a charming Holiday sampler that is very traditional in feel and color. Finishing approx 16-1/2 x 11-1/2 on 30ct hand-dyed linen... you can see how dark and mangy she has distressed this. Do it that way... or lighten it up a bit to suit the colors of your decor. Only 8 different colors of Sampler Threads, the border is thick, repeating evergreens. The trees and animals are very traditional, and that house is just stunning all the way around!
Can you see how she has turned the linen edges of the piece under, and Whip-Stitched it onto a piece of primitive homespun fabric? Most antique samplers are stitched right to the very edge of that precious linen... they didn't have yards and yards of it laying around like we do now... it was very precious, and therefore valuable to the last 1/2 inch! Neat frame too... pick one up at an estate sale -- it doesn't have to be perfect -- let it be broken on the corners, and your piece will look *the age* and command the distinction it deserves!!!! Offered as a chart...
Wool & Flax Pocket Roll
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.
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.
Tribute to Summer Sampler
This is one of my personal favorites! Memories of summertime at Grandma's! Stitched on Week's 30ct Cocoa in Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Apple Cider, Toasted Barley, Chamomile, Wood Trail, Raspberry Parfait, Lambswool, Old Brick, Straw Bonnet, and Piney Woods -- I listed the colors so you'd know how pretty this is in person -- this finishes a mere 9 x 11.
The original model is crystal-distressed. I just love the big white blossoms in the border.
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.
The back picture shows pretty finishing -- two different antique fabrics on there, she's made a storage pocket back there for scissors and such.
