Make this darling stitched pumpkin! Stitch a rectangular design of simply black DMC (but hand-dyed would be cool too) on Weeks Tiger Eye Linen. Gather the top and bottom, wrap with black floss and top with Weeks Kohl wool for the leaves and a wine cork painted black... and you're good to go! Too Cute!
Cherished Stitches is offering this as a chart, so you can choose your linens and threads... and make a WHOLE patch of different little stitched pumpkins!!!!
A Spool of Tape
Oh this is a cute little kit by Cherished Stitches! ONLY $10! Just a bitty thing, you get a 1-inch wooden spool in it... (Louise confessed that she used a black sharpie to color it rather than spray paint!!!) and 10 inches of printed cotton twill tape -- it looks like a tape measure! Also a cut of 32ct linen, floss and beads... and the chart to stitch a tiny outside band to help wrap up your miniature spool of tape!
We're talking almost no time at all to make... and TONS of charm remaining for a long time!!!! A fun stitch-group gift... you could personalize that outside band too! Good Job, Louise!
Sweetheart Etui with Needlebook
Oh this is sweet and easy on your budget! It's a kit that contains the CUTEST hinged white miniature heart tin with a perforated top. The tin measures a mere 2-1/2 inches across and about an inch high. Inside, you'll stitch a tiny over-one needle book on 30ct linen with Needlepoint Inc silks.
Louise has included the tin, linen, silks, silk Dupioni linings and ribbons, pink wool flannel and a Bohin tapestry needle to stitch with and then store inside! A very pretty little thing, there are even diagonal Queen stitches on that heart etui!
How Doth the Busy Bee
A Pin Pillow Etui to hold scissors, this is another of Cherished Stitches smaller pillow kits that contains the chart, linen and pretty finishing fabrics and trims.
The pre-sorted and tied card of 8 shades of hand-dyed flosses looks enticing, as there are ribbons and bamboo chenille cording inside as well! Cute, it'll finish into a 3 x 6-ish inch pin cushion.
Believe In The Magic
This is a very pretty, classic and elegant little piece -- kind of Christmassy -- but really NOT! It doesn't SAY Christmas... think outside the circle! Cherished Stitches offers this in a chart format WITH the gorgeous finishing fabric, stain ribbon trims, shell buttons and velvet trim.
Louise's little design is stitched on a neutral 36ct linen with your Sampler Threads of Tarnished gold, Maple Syrup, Old Hickory, Wood Trail, Rose Garden and Cucumber. It finishes approx 4 x 5. Louise is really good at choosing elegant fabrics and nice trims... the buttons are REALLY cool, so that's why I opted to purchase her finishing supplies to offer with this design. It is lovely!
The Witching Hour
This is a cute little piece! Pick a mangy, icky fabric -- or distress some you already have with coffee -- or something really scary that's living in your refrigerator! Grab your Molasses, bark, Pea Coat, Terra Cotta and Mustard Seed hand-dyed flosses and stitch this fun little 3-1/2 x 5-1/2 thing.
A funky little pumpkin and some bats, it's just an odd thing, and would be pretty finished into a squishy pin cushion for that ever-growing basket of your cushion-smalls. I think I especially like the black filigree corners -- they remind me of spider webs. Offered as a chart.
A Summer Gathering
Louise Henderson has a cute new mini-pillow pin cushion design to coordinate with her Spring Gathering design. Limited to 200-ish in production, the delicate summer berry bush is stitched on 32ct Linen with Sampler Threads and garnished with a bit of burlap banding and some shell buttons.
All of Louise's cushions are charming -- she always trims them with pretty fabrics and unique ribbon/band/button/lace trimmings. There are still a few past releases that are still available pictured on her pages. Summer Gathering includes the chart, linen, finishing fabric, overdyed flosses, coconut shell buttons, burlap and silk ribbons. The stitcihng is approx 3 x 4, the entire cushion approx 3 x 6.
Threads of Memory - Give Us Liberty
Here's a sweet piece -- 69 x 64 in stitch count -- worked on just about any fabric you'd like best. Charted for Weeks Grits, Terrapin, Gunmetal, Navy, Scuppermong, Aztec Red and Cayenne.
There's nothing difficult with the stitching or finishing -- the model features some of Dames of the Needle's mini-ball fringe trim. (You could choose just about any color featured in the design -- we have several color options for that.)
Worked on 32ct Raw linen, this features one color of Gentle Art hand-dyed floss and is garnished with three pearl flower buttons and some pretty natural linen rik-rak! Another of Louise's limited in edition cushion kits... the linen, finishing fabric and trims are included.
We are filling all our models with crushed walnut shells (lizard litter... sold at your friendly neighborhood pet store) and they feel so good. Her whole collection of these designs is pretty -- especially with part of the decorative fabric on the design fronts -- not just hidden on the back.
Stars and Stripes -- A Surprise Offering! -- (77 x 87) includes the pretty blue fabric, the cotton lace and cuts of brick red satin ribbon you see on the side trimmings. Finishing instructions included in both of these... this entire set of Louise's Pillows have been very limited to 200 kits of each in production -- and we have only a few of a Summer and last year's Autumn left!! Very nicely done.
The Shepherd's Love
*Come live with me and be my Love...* Taken from a 16th century poem by Christopher Marlowe, wouldn't this be a neat wedding shower or wedding gift to present? Record the wedding date and important names over one near the bottom of the 4-1/2 x 5-1/2 stitched area. Offered as a complete kit so YOUR pillow will turn out LIKE this one... the kit includes a cut of 32ct Dark Chestnut Linen, hand-dyed flosses of rich blues, browns and greens, the lace, coordinating brown printed fabric for the bottom panel and back of the piece, and the exquisite antique brass embossed button.
Quite a classic little piece!!! This is a Limited Edition Kit offered to just the shops that attended the Fall 2014 wholesale trade show. It is presented by Robin Patrick of Threads of Memory -- she is a new designer, and daughter of Cherished's Stitches's Louise Henderson!
A sweet and simple birth announcement design, it finishes approx 5 x 6 on 32ct, and is coded for pink and green silks. Easy to find threads in your stash for this, it is shown as a lace-trimmed small hanging pillow.
Just a small thing, when all you want is a small thing... for a Small Thing!!!!! Offered as a chart.
A Quaker Family Tree
Here's a big piece that can list generations and generations of your family -- if you know all of that info! Presented as a chart, the 'border' consists of all those yummy Quaker-inspired motifs, then you fill in your family info in all the boxes. Louise gives you a couple of different name lay-outs in here, and tells you what her different names are -- so that you can get an idea of what information you want to include in YOUR sampler.
If you need more room, take one or two of those border motifs and repeat them to make the whole thing bigger. Choose one color of hand-dyed you like -- or two -- this is YOUR piece! As charted, it measures 325 x 180 -- so approx 18-1/2 x 10 on 35ct! Presented as the chart with lots of room for personalization.
All in a Night's Work
What a cute little cushion design! Worked on something grey or a deep blue... choose something kind of dark or distressed. Only 61 x 79 in stitch count, I think I like the way the black lace on the edge treatment matches the lines in the spider web.
Another cute and different pin cushion to load into your huge basket of assorted and curious little pin cushions! Offered as a chart.
Miniature Reproduction Sampler
Louise found a antique sampler that is only 4 x 6 on 40ct. She found it half folded over with the flap stitched closed. Inside, there are only remnants of blue thread leftover. Who stitched it and when?
Such a bitty thing, she recharted, and added a verse, *Tho time hath taken away my name, My work you see doth remain.* She's chosen a metal frame from Hobby Lobby!! Offered as a chart.
*Haunt ye well this Hallow's Eve* is the verse on this simple holiday piece! Choose a mangy colored linen... coffee distress it after you stitch it if you want... to work up this quick 5 x 8-ish piece.
Charted for Week's Pamlico, Grits, Sweet Potato and Mascara hand-dyed floss. It'd make a cute pillow, or even a fun quilted door hanger. Offered as a chart.
Colors of Fall
Here is a neat sewing basket and stitching smalls set... with an Autumn Acorn, squirrel and Maple Leaf flavor. The simple leaf band surrounds any sewing basket you have -- just stitch more leaves if you have a big basket! The squirrel needle case will need some pretty Weeks Wool inside and the scissor case might be stunning with a Puffin Copper and Brass Acorn Nanny or Sitter on the scissors!
Just a pretty set, nothing difficult in the stitching... the colors are such a treat! Offered as a chart, coded for DMC and overdyeds on 32ct linen.
