Back to Christmas! *Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!* Stitched on Picture This Plus 32ct Nocturne hand-dyed linen, a 24 x 27 cut, the linen is a gorgeous greyed-denim blue -- a fantastic darkened winter sky on a cloudy, snowy evening.
The charming houses in the village are lit for the Holidays, and everyone seems to be out tonight caroling.

Houses feature Satin Stitched planks, while windows are decorated with mini-garlands of petite glass seed beads.

Olde Irish Blessing from Erica Michaels
Erica Michaels has 6 new pieces -- although her designs are presented on 40ct silk gauze, they are charted just the same, and can be stitched on any count fabric you wish! Featured here is The Olde Irish Blessing. Stitch count is 132 x 164 so it finishes approx 3 x 4 on the provided gauze cut... and can be approx 9-1/2 x almost 12 on 14/28. Either way -- a lovely greeting for your home.
Charted for DMC or hand-dyed flosses, you'll need two skeins of the Oatmeal (white) and one of everything else -- Heirloom Gold, Shutter Green, Toasted Barley and Seaweed. Such pretty lettering and the clovers intertwined with the gold chain border, this is just elegant. If you choose not to work the gauze, your background will not be stitched -- so choose a warm hand-dyed fabric to keep the same soft look.
EM has 5 more designs that are new - CLICK the pic to see the rest!!!

Gather Friends Closefrom Hands On Design
WOW... this is a cute set of designs! Hands on Designs' Cathy Habermann (who used to design under Cherrywood Studios) is introducing this neat set of nine pincushions. BUT... if you are not into little pillows... she has them charted for a larger pillow or framed piece. The cover shows nine small designs. Offered in three parts... part one offers the three designs on the left-hand side. Part Two will offer the *Friends* trio of three pillows (arranged vertically in the center of the grouping.) Part Three contains the three small designs on the right-hand side of the nine.
Now... LOOK at the finishing. Every tiny pin cushion is constructed a bit differently... and all feature the most charming, retro-flavored fabrics. YOU GET THOSE FINISHING FABRICS! All are stitched on Weeks 30ct hand-dyed Honeysuckle Linen with DMC floss. Your chart contains its three designs, PLUS the finishing fabrics, PLUS the hand-dyed rik-raks and buttons shown! If you don't want to make the tiny cushions, Cathy has integrated the trims into the main medley of designs. A fat quarter of the Weeks linen will be plenty for all nine designs. We are offering an auto-ship for the remaining two charts in this set... I just love them all!!!!!
Love My Stitching from Hands On Design
Well, this is a fun design... frame it, pillow it or follow the included instructions to make it into a cool stitching pouch! Offered as a chart, the entire design is worked in only three colors of DMC floss. If you find fun fabric for your pouch and it doesn't match -- CHANGE the COLORS of floss!!!!!!!

When Pigs Fly! from SamSarah Design Studio
Well here is the perfect thing for the pessimist in your life! Sam Sarah has taken her metal Stix... last time we had flying fish stuck on them... and now she'd added Pigs! Stitched on Weeks 30ct Confederate Grey hand-dyed linen in just 5 shades of floss (Grits, King Mackerel, Peach Fuzz, Hibiscus and Whiskey) you could frame them... but they really DO fly perched atop their Sam Sarah Stix!
Offered as a leaflet, there is a bitty bag of blue button embellishments for their tummies. VERY unique and cute... if you know someone who's doing a nursery in pigs (people do the strangest things!)... you could even stitch a birth announcement on the back of one of these! Or... of course... commemorate any occasion that is marked with the promise of 'When Pigs Fly!' Baby Spiral Pig is approx 3-1/2 x 4-1/2. Middle Heart Pig is about 4-1/2 x 5, and the Big Polka Dot Pig is 5 x 6. Three 10 x 10-inch fabric cuts will do nicely... so order fabric cuts -- one to a pig!
Buttercup from SamSarah Design Studio
A sweet note of encouragement... or one a little more 'acidic'... this is pretty dog-gone cute! *Chin Up, Buttercup... or Suck it up, Buttercup!* Kind of fun perched atop a file cabinet at work (?)... ! Patti has charted this to be stitched over two on 20ct Weeks Blue Jeans linen (approx 6 x 12), and she's used Watercolors -- which is closest in weight to #5 Pearl Cotton. 20Ct is the size necessary to fit the cute metal bug stand shown in the pic.
If you want this smaller... you can choose the same color of fabric in 30ct... or choose an aida... the stitch count is really just 59 x 117. (That would finish 4 x 8 on 14ct. and would make a fun stand-up cube that could convey your message is a less bold fashion! Offered as a leaflet, there is a set of small buttons to garnish -- you can see them on the background.
from SamSarah Design Studio
Sam Sarah is doing the Happy Dance!!! To celebrate her 15 years in business, she has designed us the most cheerful piece -- it's stitched on the brand new Zweigart Petit Point White/Natural 30ct Belfast Linen using Weeks flosses!!!
Offered as the chart, with the new linen and a fun little 7-inch metal and wooden hanger piece, there is also a trio of heart button embellishments. You'll need the 10 overdyed or DMC flosses from your stash for the stitching. The whole thing is super-cute and finishes approx 7 x 8-ish. Just brings a smile to your face!
Stacy Nash has six new designs... that are all pretty good!!!
She is showing two of the new pieces finished as fabric trays to store and show-off special scissors and pin cushions -- a great way to use pretty finishing fabrics and some cool trim. Eliza Poole's sampler is charming because it features three different floral designs in it's border.
Everything is offered in chart format, and includes actual sized templates for any finishing needed. Click the pics to see everything!
Bunny Ruler Kit from Nikyscreations
Oh, this is a sweet little bunny-in-the-garden border design that Niky has designed to fit on a 2-1/4 x 6-1/4-inch ruler/thread organizing board. VERY limited in edition... she brought these to Market in her suitcase, and didn't have room for too many!
Stitched on a dense (vs flimsy) 36ct linen with 6 different shades of DMC floss, the rulers and linen were produced in Italy. The tiny bit of stitching measures apprix 1 x 5. Work the design for the organizer... then stitch it again and maybe make a pincushion or tiny sewing case as companions! Offered as the kit of chart, linen, flosses and wooden ruler/organizer.
Monthly Animals from Nikyscreations
January's Cat, February's Swan and March's Bird are all here, and the first three in this 12-part set of pin cushion designs. Offered as charts, each is stitched on really any fabric you want... and are coded for DMC floss. The month is highlighted along the bottom border, so you can leave that off, if you wish.
Primitive, classic and simple motifs, this promises to be a nice set. We're offering an auto-ship to help you collect all 12 of these. Since they are shipping directly from Italy, I'm not sure yet if Niky is sending each month... or sending two or 3 months at a time.
Birdy Stitching Roll Kit from La-D-Da
What a fun piece! La D Da's newest kit has a very unique shape and charming design. A stuffed roll to hold needles, and metal rings to hold threads... the floral urn and bird design is on the outside of the roll, and technically the backside.
Turn it over, and you see the stuffed roll at the top with Lori's signature and date. There is lovely silk twill tape attached with some brass buttons that hold rings to loop your flosses.
Stitched on Weeks 30ct Straw Linen in Week's flosses... the complete kit is awesome! Wools, lining fabrics, those metal findings... the 7 x 7 design even sports specialty stitches!!!
Wee Bundle -- Alphabets and Numbers
This is a double-stacked little pin cushion! 1*2*3*4 -- the Numbers part measures only 2 x 2-1/2 inches. The Alphabet pillow is bigger -- 3 x 4 in size. Both are stitched on Weeks 30ct Confederate Gray linen in Gloriana silk. Dames of the Needle's hand-dyed "Grunge" Pom Pom fringe and dyed silk ribbon are the trims you embellish with, and tie the pair together.
Just a precious tiny set of pillows, the colors are soft and muted. Offered in either chart or complete kit format, a very neat design presentation.
An old fashioned rabbit bringing a nosegay of posies... LOVE that elegant alphabet in the background! Stitched on Week's 35ct Beige Linen in Gentle Art's Garden Gate and Sable flosses, he finishes approx 6-1/2 x 6-1/2.
Would make a beautful pillow bordered in luscious raw silk fabrics!!
A Schoolroom Alphabet
from Needlework Press
Needlework Press has used an antique handkerchief to inspire an entire book full of Cross Stitch projects! Printed only in blue ink on white, the original image is that of an old schoolroom full of children with their teacher.
Pages and pages of history about the original blue and white kerchief, and then more history surrounding the chosen projects... each design is inspired by something depicted in the original picture. Lessons are in progress, with the letters of the alphabet all surround the scene, making it extra charming!
There are history bits about backpacks, hornbooks and supplies, keeping time, alphabet and school books, composition and autograph books, dolls and playtime.
A large alphabet sampler is accompanied by projects that decorate tote bags and backpacks, cover your e-reader and more. Charts, lots of history and LOVELY pictures throughout... all because of the image on an old handkerchief! The softcover book is 96 pages, and very pretty!
Microfibre Glasses Cleaning Cloths and Cotton Kerchiefs
Needlework Press has reproduced the image from the antique Schoolroom Handkerchief onto small microfibre glasses cleaning cloths, and plain cotton cloths.
The Glasses cloths are just like our Sampler Cleaning Cloths. The coolest little 5-1/2 x 6-1/4 mini Micro-Fiber cloth to clean your eyeglasses, magnifier lens, telephone or e-something thingie, or computer screen! Every stitcher needs at least three of these --
one for your purse, stitching bag and dresser drawer. The design is a pretty blue and white teaching scene surrounded by circles of the alphabet letters.
The plain cotton kerchiefs are 14 x 14 inches square... and just a soft cotton cloth. I'd use them as my napkin for stitching treats!!!
Just something little and fun I found, we're offering a Baker's Dozen on these (13 for the price of 12), because I can think of a million people who would love to have at least one of them!!! Mix and Match is OK... let us know if you want to mix the microfibre cleaning cloths with the cotton ones.

All Because Two People Fell in Love
from Cherry Hill Stitchery
That's the verse on this pillow... it could be a wedding momento - or even a birth sampler!!! Stitched in only 6 colors of DMC and hand-dyed the stitch count on this is 166 x 76.
It would be neat on the front of a photo album... it would be neat stitched and framed in a shadow-box with a couple of special photos... it would be neat stitched in 'the wedding colors' of the wedding, and placed on an easel on the gift table... this is definitely a unique, classy, fresh take on a wedding/baby celebration! Offered as a chart.
The Winter Garden
from The Drawn Thread!
The Drawn Thread has sent three new designs this week... Winter Garden is just one. It is her 5th in a garden set -- joining Spring, Autumn, Butterfly and Herb Gardens. Same size and general flavor as the others, this 289 x 63 stitch count design features the Grand Manor along with it's lavish garden of Wintertime Growth! Pines, holly, dogwoods, juniper, ivy... everything is growing so beautifully in the Winter Garden!
Cynthia loads these with special stitches so everything takes on a bit of texture and interest... and this piece is coded for 9 Needlepoint and 5 Dinky Dyes hand-dyed silks. Wintery reds and greens, and of course the white snow all pop against the 32ct Smokey Pearl Linen background. Offered as a chart... for a LIMITED time we have silk packs (all 14 colors) available for this, as well!
The Country Life
from Blackbird Designs
Blackbird's 7th Loose Feathers Abecedarian Sampler leaflet arrived this week! I LOVE this little piece -- very pastoral in flavor -- it is dedicated to Barb's mom who moved back to the family farm to help run it during the war in 1944. Look at all the charming animals in the yard!!
Stitched on R & R's 30ct American Chestnut linen in 15 shades of Sampler Threads, this little thing finishes approx 6 x 9-1/2. Just so pretty... I can even see it split up -- the smaller sampler top part, and then the solid yard as a pin cushion! Offered as a leaflet.
A Quickie Note:
We have a luscious supply of Lone Elm Lane's 6-inch round Aged Pewter and Black handmade Shaker Sewing Box that Barb and Alma are featuring on their new 12-part Sewing Box Series of leaflets. Only two designs out so far... we are not-so-patiently waiting for box-top number three!
Midnight Ride and Give Thanks are the first two that grace this fun little box. You are supposed to switch out your needlework toppers each month, but The Cross Stitch Police will not pay you a visit if you fall behind and leave your favorite piece in there for several months!!!
2014 Collector's Heart
from Heart in Hand
Cecilia has sent her new annual collector's heart design... we have them all the way back to 2008!
Small 4 x 4-ish romance designs, these all come with a cut of linen and embellishments. Find the bits of hand-dyed flosses in your stash.
Elizabeth Wood -- 1822 from With My Needle
Ellen Chester has a pretty antique sampler in her private collection that she has recharted for all us! Elizabeth Wood stitched the original in 1822, what a charming piece it still is!
The neat octagonal border, all the florals and the urns, it is stunning. Ellen talks about the original a bit -- fabric choices and such -- her new piece is worked on Week's 35ct Cornsilk Linen and finishes approx 12-1/2 x 15 inches. I love all the "busyness' in here! Offered as a chart.
Farmyard Babies -- Tartlets #4 from The Victoria Sampler
The Victoria Sampler's Cathy Jean has a new set of 'babies' that are framed in her miniature tart tin frames. Joining Tartlets #1 -- Woodland Babies, Tartlets #2 -- Woodland Babies #2, Tartlets #3 Woodland Birdies, and now #4 Farmyard Babies (I was getting confused between the babies and the birdies!!!!!!!) this is a precious set of designs!!! (All four leaflets are pictured on the back of this one, so THAT's what kept me straight!)
A lamb, piglet and goat, each is stitched on 28ct Dirty Cashel Linen in Gentle Art Sampler Threads. She has garnished them with micro buttons in pink and lavender... but since the first three accessory packs included red micro buttons -- for a Christmas ornament flavor -- she has also included the red buttons in #4's accs pack -- just in case you want to continue that theme. The metal tins measure approx 3 inches at the widest part of the flutes. What a cute way to finish your 2-1/2 inch circles of stitching. Offered as the leaflet with thread and button accessory pack offered separately, and the tartlet tins separate as well.
The new Lizzie Kate has arrived!
Spring and Summer are the first two to release in this set of 4 Flip-Its -- Autumn and Winter arrive in March. Small cards with fun designs of houses, neat trees, pretty borders and lots of critters in the gardens... each of these can be stitched individually... or joined together into one 4-some. Each card comes with a trio of tiny button embellishments. Linda stitched her models on 28ct Amber Linen -- you can sub anything else if you like it better. See details on the Auto-Ship page!
A chartpack with quite a wonderful sentiment... *You'll never have this day with your children again... tomorrow they'll be a little older than today... this day is a gift... just breathe, notice, pay attention... enjoy today. It'll be over before you know it.* Always great words of wisdom from Linda!! Offered as a chartpack the design measures approx 7 x 9, and is worked with 7 pretty shades of hand-dyeds. No charms are called for... so if you want yours, 'more charming!' ... check your fun stash of things!
The next Inspirational Boxer... "The Lord is good and his love endureth forever." Offered as the chart with fabric cut and a few beads. Finishing approx 3 x 7 on the included 32ct Lambswool linen, it calls for 10 different DMC or hand-dyeds from your stash.
Lizzie Kate's 'String Thing' continues with a snowy, blizzardy, flakey, wintery scene. Long and skinny... the alphabet lingers all along the design -- mixed up with little motifs. Offered in Snippet format -- no embellishments. Linda has some other STRINGS already... Halloween, Christmas and Spring... every one of them is long and cute!
Pincushion Appeal from JABCO
Rachel and Cecile from Just Another Button Company continue to dabble in the cutest small wool sculptures to display their handmade buttons and pins. Pincushion Appeal is a softcover book -- 48 pages -- that features 8 creative pin cushion patterns.
There is a big red 'Measuring Mushroom' tuffet... and a wool bride and groom! The cactus in its pot is so cool -- it's a small work of handmade art! There is a snowman-in-a-globe -- which is actually just the wool art underneath a glass dome. (I think that's an awesome way to display something -- keeps the dust off!)
Anyway... unique designs, pretty pictures, all the necessary actual-sized design templates and assembly steps, everything is here to help you make your own tiny cushions!
The Passport Pincushion from Shakespeare's Peddler
Shakespeare's Peddler has a new pincushion design that sports a fun, new concept for treasuring small scraps, whatnots, and tokens. Pages and pages of design ideas in here... lots of assembly instructions... basically Theresa is showing us how to take small design tidbits and small trinkets... preserve them into cross stitch... and attach them to a 'tuffet' full of buttons, laces and pins.
You can use any small scraps you have... her stitching around the edges looks messy and old... but she gives us explicit instructions on how to do that. Distress or not... use fun trims or not... Ms Theresa talks more in this chart pack than I have EVER heard her talk in person!!!!! She adds that this pattern in for those who are *free spirits* and those who *need to loosen up a little!* Offered as a chart... this is a scavenger hunt for your stash!!!

The Quaker Button Ball from Amaryllis Artworks
Wow... here's a neat Puzzle Ball to showcase some special buttons you might have in your Grandmother's treasured button box! Stitched on bits of three different shades of brown linen -- 32ct -- using blacks, browns, hazelnuts and creamy colored threads, pearly buttons just pop out amidst the designs. You could always switch linen and thread colors if your particular buttons like something else instead! Actually quite generous in size -- the diameter is about 5 inches.
You are stitching eight hexagons and six squares (about 25 to 40 stitches each in size) and each one features a different design -- making your ball especially fun to look at from all sides. Lots of good assembly instructions, diagrams and pics included in the chart.

New Arrivals from Madame Chantilly
We have 13 new designs by Madame Chantilly -- directly from France!!! I've chosen just three to show in this pic... so click on them to see everything else we have! The cutest things... quite a variety of subjects... everything is offered in chart format, written in French (so I can't read a word!) but coded for DMC floss!!!
(Don't get angry when you see the prices of these... buying them IS less expensive than a trip to France, after all! Each chart has a red logo mark on it, so you'll know they are directly from MC. We did double check our invoiced charges!!)
The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz!
from Brooke's Books
Brooke Nolan has released a set of 8 characters from The Wizard of Oz. Offered in chart format, each is coded for DMC floss and some feature metallics for an extra punch of color. Stitch counts for all are 52 wide... and heights range from 58 stitches (the Flying Monkey) to 104 (The Wicked Witch of the West.)
Cute as can be... even though you are seeing digital images and not the actual stitched pieces... they'll finish approx 4 x 4 to 4 x 7 in size -- on the large side for ornaments, but if you do them on paper, they'd be awfully neat. Anyway... colorful, familiar, and fun!
New Mini-Minders by Kelmscott!
Kelmscott is making more of her scissors into miniature magnets!!! New this week (to join her tiny Steweb, Owl, Storklette and Elizabethan miniature versions) are her Silver Angel and Matte Black Cat styles.
Virtually the same LOOKING as her regular scissors, these are simply smaller -- just 2 inches -- and non-cutting. They are Needle Minders that look just like their larger scissor-mates. Cute as can be -- they look great anywhere you need a magnet! *Scissor-A-Holics* Beware!
Announcing: Shepherd's Bush's 2014 Shepherd's Fold
Oh... you're going to LOVE this! Tina and Teri have announced: *A delightful little sewing box filled with sweet and lovely necessities for the true stitcher.*
Beginning in late January or early February, they'll begin sending out (every other month or so) a little treasure of a kit to stitch. The first will be a round sampler to top your luscious deep plum-colored 8-inch Lone Elm Box -- which will store all the other treats in this series.
The box is an optional part of The Fold -- you might have another you already have -- but they also tell us Jill Rensel (she doesn't know yet!) will be making mats for this first piece as another finishing option for you! Perhaps a pin cushion or a little fob... all the different pieces will go together and make *a fabulous complete set!* We're beginning an auto for this fun series -- the first kit ships the day it arrives to us! That first kit, they tell us, is larger than the rest and will run $50.00. Each of the other smaller kits will run between $15 and $25. We can't wait to 'be assimilated' into THE FOLD!!!!!!
New Punchneedle from Threads That Bind
Threads That Bind's Shawn continues to bring us delightful Punch Needle designs -- hers are simply the BEST! Get out your DMC flosses -- she doesn't call for the hand-dyeds (that can exponentially escalate your cost)... she creates all this charm with her 3 and 6-strand punch needles, or the #1 on her Cameo Needle!!! We have 15 new designs... I was only going to pick up a few new ones... but I couldn't help myself! Models of almost all of them grace the shop -- we are so lucky!!!!!!
Everything is offered as the line drawing stamped onto a GENEROUS cut of khaki Weaver's cloth -- large enough to fit in larger hoops and stands. Just luscious... we're starting classes again, as well! Flowers, Chickens, Sheep, Halloween, Winter and Christmas... the collection is tons of fun!
Pere Noel Charmant
Hey, this is a fun little scene! There is a skinny Santa pulling his skinny reindeer, who is attached to a plump little sleigh of presents! Everything in the instructions is written in French, but I CAN read the 11 colors of Gentle Art Sampler Threads, which are converted to DMC if you have that to work with instead.
With a stitch count of 77 x 98, this isn't really very big. Kind of loaded with specialty stitches -- it's a little like a Chessie & Me design, in that all those stitches add so much texture and charm to the small motifs. One of the shop gals thought she'd stitch only the bottom part -- Santa, the deer and the sleigh -- and that would be so cute! Offered as the chart.
Coeur de Brodeuse (Stitcher's Heart) from Tra La La
This is a charming set of designs for a seamstress! Cute thread spools and scissors all over the place, this would finish into a fun pin cushion, needlebook or box-top set.
The stitching is simple, the colors very easy to change. Offered as a chart, I think these would be pretty over one thread as tiny ornaments and fobs, too!
Les Beaux Boutons from Zaza Picque
Something cute for the sewing room, this would make a pretty top to a button box (if you are an over-achiever) as well! With a stitch count of 97 x 112 and coded for DMC floss, you'll want to add some vintage buttons and maybe a few old pins to garnish.
Designed by Zaza Picque from France, the chart does NOT come with the buttons, lace or scissors shown, but does include the template for the finishing shape. I am sorry to say that the price on this is really $26... just because it comes from overseas (I guess?) Super expensive... but super cute, so I had to buy some!
We have two fun new scissors that are straight out of ANTIQUE! Teeny, weeny, squatty snips... these measure only 2-1/4 inches in total length, with blades a mere 1/2 an inch long. Chunky little handles, they look like they are about 150 years old!
Offered in two different finishes, Antiqued Gold and Antiqued Silver, these would be so charming on tiny stitched fobs, and really cool tucked inside antiqued sewing cases.
Crazy Stitches Templates from Sew Cherished
This is quite an unusual product for us to be carrying... they are Crazy Quilt embroidery stitches rather than Cross Stitches. (But we can think outside the box!) VERY neat, this is a package of 35 different stitch diagrams that are actually stick-on templates that WASH off!
Your package includes 4 -- 11 x 17 sheets with 35 different 'borders' of cute stitches. Cut off what you need, stick it over the seams of whatever wool, velvet, cotton or silk you are wanting to embellish. Stitch over the lines, and then soak the fabric for an hour... and transfer sheets are GONE! You are left with perfect, balanced, straight, organized looking stitches. (NOT sloppy and crooked!)
***Remember beginning to stitch on pillow cases? My mom ironed on the templates... use these for your new little stitcher!*** (Lines they can follow... use floss or Perle Cotton... maybe Talk to Santa about leaving some plain pillow cases in those stockings!...)
In the booth at Market, Sew Cherished showed these stitches joining and embellishing stuffed pumpkins, bears, crazy quits -- just everything. I thought these were very cool, very 'open' to the creative mind, and I had to have them!!
Shady Day from Sheepish Designs
Ohhhh... another golden-oldie by Sheepish Designs... we haven't had this pattern for years and years... but always loved it! Shady Day was originally published in 2004. It measures 98 x 191 in stitch count and is worked with a combination of Gentle Art Sampler Threads and DMC floss. All the sheep are so charming -- very organized beneath their billowing trees -- there are neat birds, a lazy, crooked and meandering alphabet, bold flowers, and those cool grassy hills.
There is mostly Cross Stitch in this... but bits of Lazy Daisies in the flower leaves and several places where Satin Stitches fill in giving extra texture to the flowers and those hills. This design has always captured the eye, and we're thrilled to have the chart back in stock!
The Snooty Parrots Sampler from Barbara Ana
No glory I covet! No riches I want! Ambition is nothing to me. The one thing I beg of kind Heaven to grant is a mind independent and free. Barbara Ana has a charming new sampler - but - she designed it to look and feel very old. A cool, unbalanced border, lots of little mistakes in counting scattered everywhere, and great motifs throughout... Check out the stars of the piece -- The Snooty Parrots!
So much pretty color it is stitched in either DMC or Sampler Threads and measures 248 x 329 stitches. onyx, Bayberry, sea spray, apple cider, cranberry, Grecian gold, dark chocolate, baby spinach, rhubarb and oatmeal, this piece is colorful and quite endearing! Offered as a chart. One of 3 new designs.
Baby Tool Tray!
Wayne-The-Wood-Guy putters in his studio daily -- and comes up with the coolest little wooden trinkets sometimes! This is a miniature needle tray complete with a magnet in the bottom. 2-1/2 inches long, 1-1/2 inches wide and an inch high... it is the perfect size for a couple dozen M & M's, a few pieces of hard candy, the buttons and embellishments for your current stitching project... or those needles!
When you turn over your bitty tray... there on the bottom... is The Silver Needle's name! (Cute stitch group favors, fun wrapper for bitty gifts, and a great portion-control device for those M & M's!)
Vintage Christmas, Believe & Amazing Grace from Brenda Riddle
Here is a trio of small charted designs by Brenda Riddle that feature a vintage flavor. Vintage Christmas can be worked in three different color ways on Week's Linen with Gentle Art flosses -- it finishes approx 4 x 5-1/2 -- not big at all.
Believe and Amazing Grace are both worked with Week's White Lightening floss on 35ct Gunmetal Linen.
Wanting to mimic the charm of an old chalkboard each of these finishes approx 5 x 6 and 6 x 7. Very simple and charming! Each is offered as a chart. offered as a chart.
