Hands On's Newest Releases
Cathy Haberman has three new designs; all have arrived in chart format.
  • Sunshine on a Stem -- Super-simple stitching for this glass jar of Black-Eyed Susans... what adds the charm are the felt leaves. Included with the chart for the 3 x 6 design is a strip of felt, so you can trim out little leaves to add to the stems. You will need Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Baby Spinach, Dungarees, Heirloom Gold, Wheat Fields, and Wood Trail. Easy Breezy!
  • Stitching is My Heart's Desire -- This is a cute little scissor storage case -- Cathy calls it a 'pillow keep.' Finishing only 4 x 4 and 2 x 2 on 28ct, the chart is coded for 4 colors of DMC floss. You can choose your finishing fabric FIRST and then change your floss shades to match -- easy stitching, the chart comes with a few finishing pictures as well.
  • Home for the Holidays -- This chart contains all three house designs, as well as the wording band across the bottom. It was originally presented as JUST the Wreath House with the wording band. The Garland and Snowflake Houses were published in the 2014 Just Cross Stitch Magazine's Ornament and Ornament Preview Issues that year... so they have not been available again till just now. The entire set is here. Stitched on 32ct Beachwalk linen with Sampler Threads or DMC, the little standing tri-fold is a neat way to finish them -- cute presentation and easy to store away till next year!

Winsome Ways, Peacock & Pomegranates, Strawberry Basket from Teresa Layman
Teresa Layman has three new miniature knotwork designs... not Cross Stitch at all... these are ONE wrap of a French Knot with ONE strand of DMC floss. They are kind of like *paint-by-number* or punch needle, because the design is a line printing on fabric, and you fill in the color! You need a good sturdy hoop, and a love of French Knots, and you're good to go! We have dozens of models in the shop.. and we did have a class in this one summer... and several did survive to stitch these charming creations!

Presented as the design pre-printed on Teresa's Knotwork cloth and a couple of needles. You'll need a hoop and the DMC floss. Winsome Ways finishes 5 x 5, Peacock finishes 6 x 2, and Strawberry Basket measures in at 3-1/2 x 5!

These WILL be available OPEN STOCK... this means you can purchase any of these singly if need be. (We will add them to the clicky boxes on the DMC page as soon as they have arrived.)

Needle Threader with Clasp from My Big Toe - click for more Needle Minders Antiqued Brass and Brightly Colored from My Big Toe - click for more
Pretty Fillagree Needle Minders and Beaded Threaders by My Big Toe Designs
This is a nice collection of small implements to help make your stitching more fun! Small and hand-made, they'd make nice stitcher gifts this season.
  • Needle Threader with Clasp -- This entire thing measures approx 2 inches on overall length. It features a very small wire loop to use as a needle threader, pretty bead decoration through the middle, and a sturdy clasp at the other end to attach to a ribbon, scissors, loop inside of a stitching case... where-ever you need it to stay! Perfect for #28s and larger... the clasp is definitely a popular feature around here!

  • Needle Minders -- Brightly Colored -- These are in the silver-toned oval-shaped fillagree findings. The color area is a 'dot' that is 1/2 and inch in size.

Harvest Hill from Abby Rose Designs - click to see more Harvest Blessings  from Abby Rose Designs - click to see more
A Pair of Harvest-Colored Pin Cushions from Abby Rose Designs
Here are two new charts that make into small 4 x 6 and 5 x 7 designs. Stitched with a mixture of brands of hand-dyed flosses, the houses will take a little longer to work up than the Blessings Penny rug piece.

Actually, the houses -- which are all about 30 x 40 each -- would make awesome individual cushions! Toss them in a basket with the sunflowers and trees constructed into their OWN set of cushions -- you could make 6 smalls out of this! Just fun, simple charts!

Heritage Sampler from Plum Street Samplers - click for more Blackbird Fraktur from Plum Street Samplers - click for more Hello Fall from Plum Street Samplers - click for more
Six New Designs Have Arrived from Plum Street Samplers
  • Heritage Sampler -- Honoring the American flag and it's history from the colonies to today, it features a stanza from America The Beautiful as the sampler verse. There are a lot of charming design elements in here... Pilgrims, Soldiers, mountains, waves and prairie corn... and a pristine White House. Pretty border, pretty colors! Measuring approx 9 x 10 on 36ct, choose the hand-dyeds or DMC it's charted for.
  • Blackbird Fraktur -- Something for Autumn -- that big harvest moon, the sunflowers and that green pumpkin... and all the acorns scattered everywhere, the gorgeous blackbirds are striking against all the colorful background. Measuring a generous 13 x 6-ish in size on 36ct, the moon and birds will really highlight the color variations of your hand-dyed flosses. I love that little wrought iron fence down at the bottom!
  • Hello Fall -- The third of Paulette's 4-season set, this if a generous vine of pumpkins and leaves, with a plain blackbird (as compared to those Fraktur birds!) and a quilt-motif moon! Pretty colors, this finishes rather large -- like the Spring and Summer already released -- at 8-1/2 x 4-1/2.
Merry Two from Plum Street Samplers - click for more Merry Three from Plum Street Samplers - click for more Friends of the Hart from Plum Street Samplers - click for more
  • Merry Two and Merry Three -- Two Serial Bowl Offerings... these are both in chart format -- Serials will no longer come as kits. Merry Two -- a busy scene of snowman, reindeer, Santa and lots of holly -- HAS ALREADY BEEN RELEASED months ago (in kit format) -- so watch your stash and don't duplicate. Merry Three features Santa on a rooftop waving a wreath to a COW below! (He's a Christmas Cow -- he's wearing a wreath!) Finishes approx 5 x 4... you probably cannot see the polka dot snowflakes stitched in the background, they're kid of cute!
  • Friends of the Hart -- This is gorgeous! It features a Hart (a red deer that Paulette made decided to do in grey instead!) leaping among lavish Fall foliage. There are forest animals all over in here -- squirrels, birds and a little fox -- and lots of stunning florals like those pomegranites. Love it, Love it... it finishes approx 13 x 8-1/2. Lots of movement, lots of details!


Tulip Heart Vase from Dames of the Needle - click for more Witchy Moon from Dames of the Needle - click for more To The Moon from Dames of the Needle - click for more To The Moon, Witchy Moon & Tulip Heart Vase
from Dames of the Needle
Dames of the Needle has a trio of new charts...
  • To the Moon and Witchy Moon -- this duo companions some of her other designs. Super striking, they are worked on Weeks Dye Works Carrot Linen (yes, both are... photographs on the chart covers don't show that too well!) with only Week's Onyx hand-dyed cotton floss. Finishing 5 x 7 and 7 x 7, choose ANY fabric you want -- the wilder the better -- and definitely a hand-dyed black thread of some sort, to get an eerie finish. You could even accent these with black beads for those individual stitches, or toss in some black metallics here and there! Or... stitch the moon in something gold!
  • Tulip Heart Vase -- Lots of bold, deep color in this one, it finishes 5-1/2 x 7 on Weeks 35ct Parchment linen. The fabric is actually fairly light, and I think we're used to seeing softer colors in a vase of flowers, so this looks intense. I think finish it with black edging -- pillow or framing -- I think it's super eye-catching!


Nest from Summer House Stitch Workes - click for more NEST
from Summer House Stitche Workes
This is the third and final drum in this series of HIVE, HOME and NEST. Gorgeous Teals, limes, golds and navy blues are prevalent in this set of designs -- the colors have been super rich and deep. Stitched with DMC of 434, 580, 924 and 926... this finishes just 4 x 6 but rolls into a stand-up drum cushion, complete with a wool top and calico bottom.

The fabric called for is DILL by Picture This Plus. We thought it was green.. it is GOLD, and super yummy! All three designs in this series are still available from us -- WITH THE FINISHING KITS. They include the chart, a 9 x 9 cut of 32ct Picture This Plus hand-dyed linen fabric cut and Beth Ann's delicious finishing kit of wools, calico and charms.

New Arrivals from Artful Offerings
Here is a trio of new charted designs that just make me smile!
  • Sprightly Snowman -- How cute is this little guy!? Stitched on Weeks Guacamole Linen he measures about 4-1/2 inches square and uses just 6 colors of Weeks flosses. Might be cute to add metallics or a sticky-outey carrot nose!
  • SHHH... Counting Sheep -- Real cute for a new nursery! I'd try the Gentle Art Simply wool to stitch him -- he's just charted for regular flosses right now. It is a hand-dyed wool thread that has soft variations in it, and it would make him so fuzzy looking! Fabric color is Smokey Pearl -- to look like a soft evening... but you could change that to match the room if need be... and make the numbers coordinate. SHHH finishes approx 6 x 4 on 28ct.
  • Regal Rabbit -- Another charming design -- I picture this as a pillow on a guest bedroom bed! Stitched on Weeks Avocado linen, she finishes approx 7 x 5, and is worked with hand-dyed flosses. The 'dots' in the background are a mixture of Lilac and Periwinkle... just as sweet as can be!

Lady Dot Finishing Packs Finishing Packs! from Lady Dot Creates
Lois at Lady Dot has made us some special assortment packets of her trims and velveteen finishing fabric... 3 velvets and 4 different trims in each pack... for ONLY $12 EACH! They are color coordinated -- and the idea here is to provide you with several options for finishing pin cushions, ornaments and sewing cases! Instead of trying to choose ONE color option... these packs give you coordinating trims and backing fabrics... so you can actually finish matching sets of things if you want!

Each pack contains 3 velveteens approx 9 x 10 in size, as well as 4 matching trims -- a mixture of ric-rak, chenille, baby balls, velvet ribbon, eye lash chenille -- all the beautiful trims Lady Dot makes! Some trim lengths are a yard long, others are less... but you have enough to do several pieces out of each packet. The velvets will always be the same in each pack -- Lois tells me the trims will vary, for a little extra fun! We have started with five color options: Autumn, Spooky, Primitive, Ho Ho Ho and Icy!

Halloween Sampler from Jeannette Douglas Fall Shaker Box by Jeannette Douglas -- click to see more Wool Pin Cushion and Fob by Jeannette Douglas -- click to see more
Jeannette Douglas's new things released at Market:
  • Halloween Sampler -- Finishes approx 8 x 9-1/2 on Weeks 35ct Confederate Gray -- has lots of specialty stitches and threads are all specialty hand-dyed silks and cottons. 4 Rows of cute seasonal motifs, you can do some of these individually, or make the charming 9 x 10-ish inch sampler -- complete with hand-dyed silks and cottons, metallics and a special witch hat button! Jeannette has featured gorgeous Autumnal colors in this, and of course some fun specialty stitches. The haunted house and tombstone have Satins, the bubbling cauldron down at the bottom is Bargello. Happy Halloween!
  • Fall Shaker Box -- Small chart format, again, coded for Gentle Art's Simply Wool, this fits a 6-inch chocolate Lone Elm Lane box... but it could be stitched smaller for a cushion finishing as well. Since the wools and cottons are the 'same colors' you could go with cottons if you wanted. Fits Lone Elm Lane 6-inch Chocolate box on 32ct -- anything neutral.
  • Wool Pin Cushion and Fob -- This is a small chart coded for Gentle Art's Simply Wool thread -- Gorgeous! Finish into a pin cushion and fob set or... it fits Lone Elm Lane's 4-inch pin cushion base on 32ct, and can be stitched on anything neutral. That wool is awesome to work with -- the chart calls for only 6 shades, so maybe this is a nice time to try stitching with something new to you! Chart for matching fob is included.


Stormy Night and Thundercloud from Classic Colorworks - click for more Rain Showers from Classic Colorworks - click for more Two new Classic Colorworks Hand-dyed floss colors:
Stormy Night and Thundercloud

from Classic Colorworks and Little House Needleworks
Drab, bleak colors to add to a thread line... but super-gorgeous to use in soft samplers and pin cushions... Classic has added two new colors to their line.

FOR A FEW WEEKS, we have a free chart to include when you purchase these new shades. *Rain Showers* by Little House Needleworks, is a 4 x 4-ish design that calls for just these two colors!


Rooster Ride from Barbara-Ana Designs - click to see more Rooster Ride
from Barbara Ana
Here's a brightly colored pin cushion design -- a funky little bird that will finish approx 3 x 3. It calls for only DMC of 3371, 919, 783, 829, 422, 501, 822, 503 and 780.

In looking at it, the 501 and 503 are supposed to look bright aqua... I don't think they do, so you may want to change your thread a little to get to match this charming picture! I like the contrast of the teal/aqua against the rust and gold. Anyway, just a fun little chart!


Parchment Tapestry from Rosewood Manor - click for more Parchment Tapestry
from Rosewood Manor
Rosewood Manor has several new releases -- this is one of my favorites! All the pretty motifs all organized so beautifully inside their sections, it is full of antique-y, soft color. Stitched on Weeks 32ct Parchment Linen with 18 different shades of Weeks hand-dyed cottons, it finishes approx 19 x 13 and is just stunning. Each section has a pretty stylized floral -- notice that all those on the edges can be flipped to create more whole motifs.

Do the pretty alphabet all by itself and add the 'leaf' border around it... or leave it off completely! Any of the florals would be stunning over one on something little for a fob or needle case cover (they measure about 45 x 45 stitches each.) Very traditional, balanced and striking!

  • Magnetic Mini Minders -- Just baby Nannies!  Nannies run over an inch, these are definitely under an inch in size -- same strong magnets.
  • Threaders -- Available in Micro for beading needles and Regular for regular needles... the brass artwork is easy to hold onto for threading and the hook is very substantial -- won't pullout when you pass it through the needle eye.
Count Your Blessings from Blackberry Lane
Count Your Blessings
from Blackberry Lane
Blackberry Lane has a new design -- this one is NOT all stitched one over one -- just the verse and the goodies in the sewing box! Finishing about 3-3/8 on 36ct it is shown mounted in the top of Lone Elm Lane's Clamping box... but it'd make a darling stuffed pin cushion as well.

Coded for DMC and Turkish Red, Oatmeal and Sugarplum hand-dyeds -- we laughed -- that's one serious needle she has there!!!!!
