The American Trilogy
This is a really neat 'retro-inspired' designs to celebrate America! The Twin Peak girls are from The Netherlands... and I usually think the designers from other countries don't always 'get' our 'Americana Flavor'... but these are pretty good! Charts are large, and in addition to the black and white version, you get a complete color version as well. Available separately or all three together in one leaflet... choose just your favorite one or two... or do all three for a really nice trio presentation!
Smell the Sea and feel the Sky - just don't get sand in your stitching bag! This is kind of a fun piece by Twin Peak Primitives... I see three bands of design in here... so lots of possibilities. The top row features spools of thread with those shorebirds, bitty cabanas and the fishermen on them. Notice the clothesline there with the scissors and needles on it? (and the bitty swimsuit!) The crabs are super cute, and the row of whales down below just makes it a busy sea-scene.
Presented as a leaflet, the stitch count is 170 x 119 - so 10-1/2 x 7-/12 on 16/32ct, and it calls for regular DMC floss. Easy to add some hand-dyeds , you could do the crabs in metallic, or the tiny swimming fish... or add buttons here and there if your stash 'overfloweth!'
*All flowers blossom at different times*... a pretty piece. Stitch all of it, or choose just the bands you like!
By Twin Peak, it measures 167 x 248 - so 12 x 18 on 28ct - it is worked with DMC floss. Presented in leaflet format.
One Nation Under God - Liberty
This is quite the piece by Twin Peak (all the way from The Netherlands!) Stitched on 36ct (329 x 310), it'll finish approx 18 x 18 - you won't lose THIS on the wall! The pattern refers to Rustico Aida, but also Picture This Plus's Wren color... so those should give you an idea of fabric choices.
It is coded for DMC or Weeks hand-dyed flosses - 18 different shades. It's really very pretty, and I especially like the big floral pots up by the words. (Do one of those if you haven't got time to stitch this whole thing!) And we love those billowing flags too!
Old School on the Prairie
This is a sweet little piece that feels to me like it needs to hang above the mitten and hat pegs in the hallway going to the back door! Kind of like the 'coat room' in Kindergarten! Measuring just 154 x 123, it finishes approx 9-1/2 x 8 on 32ct - not very large at all.
Suggested fabric is Rustico - which is an Aida color that translates well to Natural in Linen! Coded for 13 shades DMC - all very normal shades you'll have in your stash!
This in an interesting pattern... take a minute to get past the overpowering brown color of the background artwork... and pay attention to the chickens! They are all abut 40 x 50 stitches, and some of them have beautifully patterned areas of stitching on them!
Add some cool threads, do some long stitches... skip the borders, and do JUST A SET of chicken pin cushions! There is some chicken wire charted - maybe do chicken wire backgrounds for your cushions?
I think this pattern has great potential! Charted for DMC cottons, but think about hand-dyed Simply Wools by Gentle Art!
Black Halloween Series
There is a lot you can do with this trio of designs. Right now, they are simply black on white. Think about neat fabric colors from your stash with that same black stitching.
Or... use a hand-dyed black for more effect. You could add a few stitches of just one color to make them POP - like gold metallic for pumpkin eyes, or black metallics for the spider. Super simple and understated... they'd make striking Halloween decorations.
