A smaller piece, this is stitched on 30ct Weeks Tin Roof linen with Gentle Art Sampler Threads and finishes approx 3 x 5. The pot is actually a piece of hand-dyed wool... choose something fun from your stash or we can match a Schnigglet cut of our Weeks Wool for you. (They are 8 x 8 squares and come in a million different shades and 4 different patterns.)
Simple Cross Stitch, you could give the
flowers a black bead in their centers instead of a black stitch...
Stockingful, Noel and Silent Night
Christmas designs... Stocking is small -- only 45 x 48 stitches. It features a cut of wool or fabric as the stocking! I could see a JABCO bell button on the end of the hat.. a carrot nose button, and red beads for all those berries! Cute!
Noel is larger -- 101 x 162. Lots of Gentle Art flosses, I love the distressed dishes holding the ornaments -- but those glass balls would be neat presented by themselves, as well. A neat, unique design. All are offered as charts.
Stitch this little guy on 30ct Weeks Onyx Linen in 12 different Sampler Threads to make him measure a little under 5 x 7. (If the Onyx is too dark for your eyes... think about Gunmetal... a little softer of a grey.)
His bright colors will be pretty on almost anything! Offered as a single chart.
May I 'May I a small house and a large garden have' is the verse on this charming, overgrown, turbo-lush garden-lover's piece! A secret wish of anyone with a green thumb!
Stitched on Weeks 30ct Onyx linen in 16 shades of Gentle Art Sampler Threads, this uses only Cross Stitch, but you could always add some Rhodes or Eyelets in the flowers and some Satins on the beehive. Such a pretty piece, finishing approx 7-1/2 x 9-1/2, very unique and eye-catching, it is offered as the chart.
108 x 137 Stitch count... this is worked in one color of hand-dyed -- your choice!
Pick a neat black to get some pretty variation. Finishes approx 7 x 9 on 30ct.
A Sheltering Tree
Another pretty one, this finishes approx 6 x 7 on 30ct. Check out all the little things that are sheltered by that winding tree... the squirrels, birds, bunnies and flowers!
This is done in an overdyed olive green shade of your choice.
We found a new designer to the cross-stitch industry at Market a couple of weeks ago -- All Through The Night. They've been in the quilting end of things, and have begun to chart some designs! Their first, Jolly Jack, is offered as a 5 x 9 chart, with a beautiful glossy model pic,and he's awesome! Worked on Weeks 30ct Putty Hand-dyed linen, in 9 different shades of Weeks flosses, he finishes approx 5 x 5.
Most of All Through The Night's designs are actually wool with primitive stitching! Since we carry all of Week's hand-dyed wools, we thought these were worth a look! Besides... they are simply beautiful in person, and we fell in love with them! (In fact, Mary and I agree we don't begin to do them justice with the images below.)
Jolly Jack is Cross Stitch... the rest are basic embroidery!
