Offered in small card format and coded for DMC, Anchor, or hand-dyed flosses (all three companies!) they can be worked on anything you want, but finish approx 2 x 4 over two on 32ct.

Just a cute little guy, he is stitched with overdyeds or DMC, and his chart does come with a small brass leaf embellishing charm.

The Trilogy has sent a cute new kitted design -- Secret Haunting -- that joins like a million (actually like only 12!) fun 5 x 5-ish designs. Busy medleys of tiny motifs, this one isn't as multi-directional as some of the original designs, but it is real cute and fun to study. Look at the moon... can you see his mustache? EEK... I'd beware of him!

Presented just like our other dozen or so *Secrets*, this includes the chart, fabric cut and embellishment. Mona has finished most of our shop models into stand-up cubes... this series of Trilogy designs has been a long-standing customer favorite!

Overdyed, DMC or Anchor, there are a few beads and a brass star embellishment included with the leaflet. Super easy stitching, frame the four, or make them into individual stand-up cubes or something! Offered as the leaflet... the little 2 in the title stands for *Squared!*

We already have Halloween, Christmas, Winter, flower gardens and birthdays represented, and now this one is for the cook-of-the-house and treasured kitchen. The big stew pot is simmering on the stove -- you can just smell the (soup?)!

Offered as the chart with cut of 32ct Natural Linen and tiny pea pod charm embellishment, it calls for 15 different DMCs or overdyed from your stash. Just cute, it'd be nice as a stand-up cube on the sill.

Winter Sneak Peek
Trilogy continues their *Peeks* with Winter... and all of it arrived in one box today! A tribute to winter and it's blowing snow (which most of the country hasn't seen very much of this year!) The first chart includes the overall border and left-hand block -- a polar bear and the family igloo. The middle two squares are presented in Snowy Fun and Folly -- A snowman losing his hat to that flying snowball, and the unfortunate skier. The final two squares include the other half of the snowball fight, and the People-Igloo!

You can stitch all of this together, or just do the smaller blocks individually -- your choice. There is an embellishment pack for that border, which I love! All together, everything measures approx 3-1/2 x 11 on 32ct. Just cute Winter themes, so HOPEFULLY you can display all snowy-winter-long!

Domes of Yule
Domes of Yule from The Trilogy - click to see more The Trilogy has a new set of charts -- one larger, main leaflet, and three smaller coordinating cards. The main 3-1/2 x 8-1/2 design reads; Christmas Time is for Santa's gifts, mistletoe, kisses and togetherness. You can stitch just that, or leave out the gifts, mistletoe and kisses, and insert the individual 2 x 2-1/2 Dome designs instead! Then it reads *Christmas Time and Togetherness.* Or, skip all that, and stitch the three little designs and assemble them into ornaments! (Confused yet?)

We have some stitched pics here, and a digital image, too, to help clarify. All cute, everything is stitched in an assortment of DMC or hand-dyeds on 32ct Summer Khaki linen, and trimmed with a few gold beads and jingle bells... which surely you have in your stash!

Sneak Peek for Christmas! from The Trilogy - click to see more Sneak Peek for Christmas!
The Trilogy's 5-panel piece of glimpses into Christmas has all arrived! Inside that jagged border are 5 cute little ornament-sized designs - each seeming to *Peek* out of its tiny box. This is angular and edgy!

Secret Santa from The Trilogy - click to see more Secret Santa
Trilogy has several new releases... a new Sneak Peek for Christmas, two small ornament designs, and this new *Secret* design. They have lots that match this cube... all the 'Secret' designs feature small motifs all jumbled together... with at least one of them right-side-up, whichever way you turn the finished piece! (I guess the top is the Secret!!!)

Anyway, this one is all Santas, and they really are very cute! A couple of them would be super-dinky on scissor fobs! Offered as the chart with cut of 32ct Natural Belfast Linen, and a clay package button, you supply the flosses from your stash. We've finished all of the 'Secrets' into stand-up cubes at the shop... and after lots of years -- they all still appeal!

Secret Beach from The Trilogy - click to see more Secret Beach
The Trilogy has a new Summer Beach scene delivered in the format of chart, linen and sand dollar clay button embellishment. Like Secret, Flower, Pumpkin... (They have a million designs in this series)... this finishes into a 5 x 5 stitched piece that is charming!

In most of them, they have turned the motifs, so that there is more than one top and bottom. This one has a definite design direction... you can tell, by all those fun little crabs peeking from the sandcastles and beach umbrellas, and the mermaid. Just really cute, these are always popular with the shop customers! Offered as the chart with 32ct Natural Linen and the clay button.

Sports Line-Up from The Trilogy - click to see more Sports Line-Up
Here's something for the busy Mom who's spending time on the fields or the gym bleachers!!! Stitch this and add a couple of rows around the edges that represent the team colors... add a couple of important tournament dates to the bottom... stitch it for the school trophy case!

Offered as the leaflet, this finishes approx 5-1/2 inches square on 32ct.

Christmas Line-Up from The Trilogy -- click to see more Christmas Line-Up
The Trilogy has released a Christmas design to match the rest of their Line-Ups... that will probably need to be added to NEXT YEAR's stitching schedule!!!

Zoo Line-Up from The Trilogy - click to see moreZoo Line-Up
Well, isn't this cute? They needed one for household animals like the cat, dog, bird, and fish, (with space for the optional spider or snake!!!) Anyway, this IS cute, and you could hang it over the hamster cage... or in an animal-lover's bedroom! I like the little elephant in there, the penguin is darling, and the alligators are pretty cool!

(I guess if you live in Florida, you'd rather have these alligators on your walls than in the backyard!) Offered as a leaflet, it finishes approx 5 x 5, and is a fun companion to the rest of the Line-Up designs! (4 Seasons, Halloween and Easter!)

Halloween Line Up from The Trilogy - click for moreHalloween Line Up
Trilogy celebrates Halloween in a big way, with lots of teeny weeny motifs, all lined up in the cutest way! Offered as a leaflet, Halloween Line Up joins the seasons already published, and is just as charming. Finishing approx 5 x 5 on 28ct linen... (our Spring Line Up shop model is worked over one thread so it's half that size!) every row features such fun little things.

Check out the owls at the top, then all the spiders... then the precious and scary Trick-or-Treaters at the bottom! You have Superman down there, an angel, I think a pirate, and definitely a mummy... Great colors of DMC OR hand-dyed!

Secret Vegetable Garden from The Trilogy -- click to see more Secret Vegetable Garden
Trilogy has released three new designs... and I thought this Vegetable Garden thing was really cute! It's the 7th in their Secret Garden set of designs... little squares that seem to have no actual top or bottom side to them! This one is full of garden color -- greens and oranges -- full of garden critters -- rabbits and snails -- and full of yummy vegetables... complete with the carrot button and a little garden worm!

Packet includes the pattern, carrot, worm and 32ct Summer Khaki linen cut. You add bits of floss, and the tray of veggies to snack on while you're stitching!

Easter Line-Up by The Trilogy -- click to see more Easter Line-Up
Wow... here's another Line-Up Leaflet that is FULL of Holiday appeal! Always a series of 6 borders, all of the Line-Ups have been full of lots of creativity! You can pull out so many cool little motifs and rows and add them to other pieces, make small ornaments, whatever! I love the row of bunnies second from the bottom... they are just whiskers, but to me... all the rabbits look like they're wearing those sunglasses with the big nose attached!

Finishing approx 3 x 3 over one thread, or 5-1/2 inches over two on 32ct, just plain cross stitches, with lots of potential!!!

Just fun... Magic By Mona -- our finisher -- is making a 4-sided cube stand-up with all of these! Or you could stitch them all in a row, like the folks at The Trilogy did.

Autumn Line Up -- click to see lots more! Autumn Line Up
A new leaflet by The Trilogy, this is the 3rd in the 4 seasons of Line-Ups! 6 Awesome lines (at least) in each piece... you are treated to rows and rows of seasonal motifs. Autumn features lots of little blackbirds, acorns, squirrels and pumpkins... very cute.

Lots happening in this one... VERY cute!

Welcome Home by The Trilogy -- click to see more! Welcome Home Take-Along Kit
A greeting we all want to see when we get home... this is a quaint scene of three houses, welcoming us home! I imagine each of the three designers in The Trilogy -- Heart in Hand, Twisted Threads and Bent Creek -- each designed one of the houses, but after studying it for a while I really can't figure out who did which house!!!

Finishing approx 3 x 7 over two threads, the complete kit contains the chart, 32ct Natural linen, the pre-sorted overdyed flosses, the little moon buttons, and needle. It's all packaged in a clear plastic wallet-style folder, so it's easy to stuff into your bag and take along -- just like the name implies! This would be great finished as a wall hanging... or a fun stand-up for a quiet spot... be creative!

Thanksgiving Spots
A miniature holiday design, this card delivers a fun little design stuffed full of holiday motifs -- complete with a really pretty sterling leaf charm embellishment! Just like all the rest the Spot designs, this one features teeny-weeny details that are so small and cute!

We have everything in this 1-1/2 or 3-1/2 inch square piece -- turkeys, pilgrims and Indians, Nina and Pinta ships, and even the dinner silverware!! Our shop collection of models for the Spots set is just charming -- see them at the top of this page.

A clean, sleek, no-nonsense Wedding announcement, this is stitched in 9 different colors of overdyeds... although it appears to be just about two or three! Stitched on 32ct Dirty Belfast Linen, it finishes just 5 x 5, and features a sterling heart embellishment. In reading the dedication, I find that this is for Bent Creek's Mother... and her new life!!! How neat, it's not everyday that you get to stitch a wedding announcement for your Mom!!! Anyway, it's a crisp, contemporary design that will definitely appeal to young-at-heart newlyweds. Available as the leaflet, with separate embellishment.
