Auntie's Sewing Box, Your Attitude and Your Issues
Sue Hillis has released some fun designs...
Sue Hillis' delightful artwork is all over this box top and sides, along with more cute matching designs for ornaments, git tags and stand-ups. 'Santa Claus is coming' is featured atop a 7-inch plain paper box, and reindeer race around the sides. Every design in here is so cute and colorful, I don't know which one I like the best. If you stitch them all, you'll need a 1/4 yard of fabric and lots of DMC.
Complete finishing and assembly instructions are included in here - pages and pages, pictures and pictures! Of course, nothing says you have to finish any of these designs like the pics... but the book offers really nice suggestions and lessons. The little reindeer around the box are all slightly different, the rocking horse measures about 4 x 5
Something Wicked Box & Smalls and Banner & Biscornu
Sue Hillis has two new books that feature delightfully fun sets of designs for Halloween, and then really concentrate on all the finishing details for everything in the sets.
High Tides and Good Vibes
Kind of says it all!!! A new leaflet by Sue Hillis, wouldn't you just love to be spending time in this little camper on the beach? Coded for DMC, it finishes approx 4 x 8 on 32ct.
One of the cover models features scrapbook paper flags decorating it... and the leaflet also includes a cute little STITCHING MERMAID! She's only 32 x 18 -- so she'd make a darling pin cushion!!! Just a happy, summer design!
Keepsakes One, Two and Three
Sue Hillis has a 12-piece set of cute stitcher-related ornament and pin cushion designs. Presented in three separate leaflets, you would never guess that EVERY ONE of these is the same stitch count - 50 x 50... she's just shown you 12 different finishing options!
All DMC, no special embellishments... you can check your stash for old buttons and cute embellishments... she shows some Puntini Puntini pins on the beehive model - (now, there's a collection of CUTE pins and buttons to choose from!) Sue has also shown a layout on her back covers to join all 12 designs together in one framed piece. LOTS of possibilities with this set!!
A Study in Blue
This little pattern set is quite the favorite everywhere it seems! Sue Hillis has covered a 7-inch paper mache box (she has source/ordering info in here) with cross stitch on the outside and lined it with coordinating fabric on the inside. There's even a pin cushion to store inside your box! Complete instructions are provided in here (with lots of actual photos of her finishing processes) to line the box and cover the top and sides.
You stitch everything on a 1/4yd cut of 32ct Country Vintage Mocha Belfast Linen with only Gentle Art's Sampler Thread of Dungarees - we are guessing 3 skeins. (if you find another lining fabric you like better, change your stitching thread color to compliment that! Nothing says this has to be blue, you make it your color!) Everything is adorned with vintage pearl buttons - way more fun to sew on a button HERE than on one of your clothes!!!
New Mini-Sled Patterns for Christmas Ornaments
Sue Hillis has 2 new leaflets that feature small ornament-sized designs that you can finish ANY WAY you like. She's shown these on those darling little wooden sleds we have!
By Foxwood Crossings, the bitty 1-1/2 x 3 inch sleds come in natural brown wood with metal blades and handles. You can paint them any color you like -- Sue's are all white. Sleds are available separately -- $4.50 each, but we have a Baker's Dozen offering that helps when you are making a lot of these.
Patriots and Stitcher join Sweets, Ride, Friends, and Red Sleds... so Sue's collection of designs is up to 38!
Christmas for The Stitcher - A Sewing Bird, spools of thread, stork scissors and a tomato pin cushion... the are cute for us 'seamstresses.'
Presented in leaflet format, you get the actual sized template for sled finishing as well as really nice finishing process photos.
Sue Hillis has lots of cute new arrivals -- Halloween, Christmas, Sports and even a fun leaflet for Dad's Father's Day gift!
Christmas in Red & Christmas Friends
A pair of new sled leaflets by Sue Hillis. NO... the sleds don't come in white -- if you want them white, you have to paint them! These are, however, two fun collections of more designs to dress those cute little wooden ornaments.
Sue shows lots of rik rak and trims around her designs... you can do that, but keep in mind that perforated paper is good too, and you just cut that out and glue it on! These samples are a bit more involved on the finishing end... and they'll be just as cute if you don't fuss as much. Sleds are offered separately.
Graduation is Approaching!
Pirates! For the *Aventuresome One* in your life! Sue Hillis has been doing these fun Pirate designs for years and years... they come as small charts with a charm included and finish approx 5 x 7 when stitched on a 14/28ct. Choose Use any fabric you like... depends on your Pirate's favorites!
It's All About Dad
Kind of cute things to stitch for someone special... definitely of a *retro* feel to these... I would have stitched these for my Dad 40 years ago, and he'd have loved them!
All three designs in one leaflet, choose any fabric, coded for DMC or Sullivans floss.
Baseball, Basketball, Football & Soccer
Here are 4 sentiments to stitch for the specific enthusiast. Change DMC colors to match favorite team colors... frame them with a special photo...make a bedroom door sign... so many possibilities!
Each finishes approx 5 x 5 on 14/28ct, and coded for DMC floss.
Broderie a Paris
Such a cute medley to remind you of Paris, Sue has made a scissor Eiffel Tower! Several motifs in here could be pulled out to make small ornaments and fobs, maybe a sewing case front?
Stitched with Cranberry Gentle Art Sampler Thread, this finishes approx 7 x 10 on anything 14/28ct. Charming!
Creature Feature and Dark Shadows
Here are two fun leaflets by Sue Hillis -- each features a set of six coordinating designs that finish approx 3 x 4-ish... depending on your fabric choices. You can see that Dark Shadows is just waiting for some exotic color choice by YOU... and Creature Feature needs Weeks Chartreuse, Pumpkin, Peoria Purple and Carrot linens!
Make ornaments, stand-up blocks, little doorknob decorations, whatever! Presented as two separate leaflets.
Christmas Sweets and Christmas Ride
A pair of leaflets by Sue Hillis has arrived in the shop -- a total of 11 different designs for the bitty Foxwood Crossings wooden mini-sleds.
So darn cute, each leaflet has nice finishing instructions for adding trims and such, along with the charts to stitch these 1 x 2-ish ornaments! Christmas Sweets features candies and cookies, while Christmas Ride has holly and skates. The small wooden sleds by Foxwood are available separately... we even offer a Baker's Dozen special on them!
Well, obviously, we can't finish these little guys for this Christmas... but aren't they cute? Sue Hillis has released a leaflet featuring 9 reindeer that all measure approx 70 x 55 in size. Everyone is a little different -- sweaters, scarfs, hats and even skates. Flying here and there, you can finish them off indivdually or into that long hanging shown on the cover insert.
Coded for Sullivans or DMC floss, you could always add some snowflake buttons or a little metallic sparkle, some wool for the deer bodies, or black metallic for those noses. Lots of possibilities with this one. Offered as the leaflet, there are ornament finishing instructions along with an actual-sized cutting template inside.
Aren't these the cutest little shoes??? Can't you picture the little people who wear them??? One of Sue Hillis's newest releases, this leaflet features three different shoe designs stitched 5 different ways. Included is a full alphabet and number set, so you can personalize the shoes of your choice.
Each finishes approx 3 x 4 or 5-ish on 28ct, and is stitched with DMC flosses. Change shoe colors if need be... what a darling baby announcement?! You could even get the original shoes bronzed, frame them in a shadow box, and feature this stitching in the box! Moms and Grandmas... get busy!
America the Beautiful
We've seen an increased demand for this old-favorite design recently! Originally published in 1985, it's a map of the United states, complete with little pictures that depict each state's famous crops or industry. It measures a whopping 17 x 29" on 14/28 ct.. quite a statement for a wall! It was designed before the days of beads, buttons and charm embellishments... but there are lots of places that sort of thing would be fun on this. Enjoy!
Uncle Sam's Parade
Oh, I just love this old-fashioned parade of little kids following Uncle Sam! Tricycles, a Radio Flyer, a red wagon and lots of flags and balloons -- everything a good parade always has! Stitched on 28ct linen, it finishes a whopping 10 x 21-1/2 inches...and is stitched with lots and lots of regular DMC floss colors. Just charming... I'll let the picture speak for itself! Available as a single leaflet.
Full of rich navy, cinnamon, and golds, this is a stunning graduation remembrance -- very classy! Stitched on 28ct, it finishes approx 7 x 8," with an alphabet, with spaces provided for personalization. Included are two antiqued brass charms: a key that sits on top of the books, and a lamp-of-learning to place beside the graduate's name. Available as a leaflet with the charms.
