To Thine Ownself... Be True
Abby Rose presents four new pin cushion-sized designs... To Thine Ownself... Be True is just one. (The other three are described on our interior AR page) Offered as a chart, it is worked on 30ct (but can be anything you want!) in soft pinks, greens and browns of Gentle Art Sampler Threads.
Not big, not a series, not representing a season, this is simply a lovely little design! Want some chenille or hand-dyed silk trim for it? We have lots to choose from and can do that for you!
Home Sweet Home
What a pretty little piece, this is worked on natural linen (it comes in 28, 32, 36 and 40 so you have options!) with Gentle Art Sampler Threads from your stash.
Along with the chart, you get a pretty pearl/crystal decorative pin for your finished cushion, the blue and coffee colored finishing fabric and a super-dusty-deep-blue-grey hand-dyed rayon ribbon for the edging trim. It looks like a medium bright blue in the pic, it is NOT! It is dyed to match GAST's Aged Pewter. The stitching measures approx 4 x 4.
Be Happy! *Be so happy that when others look at you, they become happy too!* Another cushiony thing with a verse on it -- like *Do More of What Makes You Happy*... this is kind of cool.
Stitch it and tuck it into that growing basket of finished smooshy cushions. You know, the big bowl sitting on your kitchen island that bored hands dig through while they're sitting there chatting with you. (They get to discover this charming collection of misc stitched cushions, all different, all fun... and then they finally get the fact that you STITCH, and they comment about it!!) See... this makes *them* happy, too!!!
Another *Bowl Filler* for Christmastime!
Finishing approx 5 x 7 on 30ct, hand-dyed flosses, stitch MERRY, but leave off Christmas, and put your family name there instead! Then, tuck it into that awesome basket or bowl!
Do More of What Makes You Happy!
Just a sweet pattern that is meant to relieve stress in your life and remind you that it's OK to DO IT!
The small 5 x 5 design is worked on 32ct Lambswool Linen in 10 different shades of hand-dyed flosses. Cute finishing in the pic... even a fun doo-dad trim embellishment... it should make you smile! Presented as a small chart.
Believe In The Magic of Christmas
A cute little pin cushion design... this is stitched with nine different shades of hand-dyed cottons and finishes about 6 x 6 on 32ct Lambswool linen.
Nothing earth-shattering stitches-wise or embellishment-wise... just a REALLY sweet and lovely design! Presented as a chart by Abby Rose Designs.
A sweet Halloween piece -- if one can call Halloween *sweet!* -- this makes a 4-1/2 x 6-1/2 cushion over two on 32ct.
Stitched with hand-dyed flosses which you probably already have in your stash, it has the scary witch, the bubbling brew and all the necessary cats, bats, jacks, and the midnight moon. Just a cute seasonal decoration to stitch in a jiff! Presented as the chart.
Spring and Summer Pin Pillows
Charts by Abby Rose, a pair of pin cushion designs stitched on 32ct linen with a smattering of hand-dyed flosses.
Instead of stitching the season... what about your house numbers from residences past?? Might be kind of a fun way to remember your old houses!!
Each finishes approx 4 x 5-1/2. Maybe old buttons for some of the flowers, a little chenille trim that matches your threads??
Mary Pilgrim's Sampler Pillow
Just a sweet design, the larger cushion pictured measures 115 x 80 stitches -- so 5 x 7 on 32ct Antique White Linen. The smaller version is just 3-1/2 inches.
Motifs taken from an antique sampler, this is worked with Red Pear, Pecan Pie, Oscar, Olive and Dolphin hand-dyeds. Simple and pretty to perch in that basket of pin cushions you're working on!!!
Heart of Hearts
This is a charming smaller urn piece -- just a simple design -- 73 x 63 in stitch count. It is worked on 30 ct hand-dyed linen to finish approx 4 x 5 -- so smaller fabric will deliver a smaller finished cushion. It calls for Weeks and Gentle Arts of Charcoal, Faded Rose, Red Rocks, Tin Roof, Olive, Antique Rose and Bull Frog, and is coded for DMC as well.
Nothng earth-shattering... just a really pretty little thing, offered as a chart! (Dig out some of your Shepherd's Bush hand-dyed silk ribbon to finish this! If you don't have any, we'll soon have a fresh delivery right after market in a few weeks! Their ribbon would be perfect for this!)
X-mas In My Heart
This mini-kit includes Weeks and Gentle Art flosses, hand-dyed chenille trim by Weeks, the chart and finishing instructions.
You supply your 6 x 6 bit of favorite fabric from your stash for this little 3 x 3-ish ornament!
Plenty & Grace
A super-traditional little sentiment to this piece, it would be so pretty in a guest bedroom or family room setting. Offered as a chart, it is stitched on 30ct linen -- anything neutral is good -- and calls for over-dyed or DMC flosses.
Finishing approx 7 x 9, the model in the picture is finished into a pillow -- that's why I think it'd be pretty perched atop a guest bedroom bed. You can see a few letters and numbers scattered about -- change those to your family's initials and possibly some 'home established' dates.
Blue Manor *Peace be to this house and to all who dwell in it.* A nice 'guest room' verse, inside an organized border with a very swirly alphabet... the garden is beautifully manicured, the stars in the sky are neat... and the house looks formidable!
With a stitch count of 230 x 194, this finishes approx 15 x 13 on 30ct, the chart includes instructions for coffee-distressing your linen to give everything an aged look. Offered as a chart.
