To Thine Own Self Be True from Abby Rose Designs
Abby Rose Designs released a charming design at the recent Market -- I think it is lovely!

She includes finishing instructions to make the little 5-inch pillow, and more tips on coffee-staining and distressing the finished piece.
Next, the pink polka dot finishing fabric -- that has also been slightly relaxed and distressed for you -- goes on the back, the exquisite silk ribbon trims the edge, and her special hand-made glass beaded pin pokes in for a romantic finish! Very well done, this was a nice Limited Edition Market Surprise (that sold out at the show!)

Next, it is mounted onto an antique tin Ball Mason Jar lid -- there is even a piece of porcelain inside that lid! (She said she found the lids through an antique dealer and had to wash and scrub them all in vinegar to get the icky grunge off of them!) Finally, you get to cover your edges with Dames of the Needle's Wonka's Blueberry mini ball hand-dyed trim!!! The whole cushion feels very heavy and substantial in your hand, and is just the COOLEST thing!!! She's done a wonderful job with her limited kit -- special to the shops that attended this past Market!

Both measure approx 1-1/2 inches long and about an inch in diameter. The miniature acorn charm doesn't open or crank -- it's just cute doing nothing at all! It measures only 1/2 an inch -- do anything cute with it that you want!!!

Happy Who Who Day features a boxy owl in pretty Fall colors. He's got the alphabet above him, but what about leaving that off and doing him over one as a scissor fob?

Something Wicked is a three-part piece -- presenting in three separate charts with button embellishments. Part One came today along with the specialty 32ct Brown Polka Dot/Natural Belfast Linen, and Week's Dye Works flosses.
The first part is super-fun -- but Patti doesn't even GIVE you a picture of the finished stitching -- YOU have to stitch it to see it! (So we can't show you a stitched pic either!!)
She has included a set of 6 miniature star buttons in the chart, along with her line drawing of the picture. It's a fluffy night owl perched on a tree branch, with a BIG 'OL Harvest Moon in the sky. The main piece finishes approx 7-1/2 x 11-1/2.

A new addition to our line of felt and primitive stitched ornaments by Rachel's of Greenfield, this kit brings us 6 old fashioned felt mittens made entirely of red and white.

Definitely NOT your Grandmother's Lamp!!! Introducing really fun lights for needlework and any other favorite tasks. These super-streamlined lights offer you THREE different COLORS of light -- all in the same lamp... AND the option to DIM those lights as well! LED technology means very low to non-existent heat, only 10 watts of energy used, and NO bulbs to replace.
Your Stella can change the lighting color from Warm White (2800K for reading, accent lighting and general purposes) to Pure White (4000K for arts and crafts, and working with color) to Cool White (5500K for late night projects and tired eyes!) AND... the Floor model and Edge Clamp models even come with a tiny REMOTE CONTROL to change that lighting color!!!!! (It's the cutest thing!) Next... you can dim any of these three colors by 5 levels... a great feature especially wonderful at night!
The lamps themselves come in:
Very streamlined, just lovely! The three different colors of light are amazing -- you'll be shocked at how differently you see colors, and how differently your eyes react to the different colors of the light! No magnifiers in these at this time... the brains at Stella are trying to figure out a way to get those in there without compromising the sleek lines the lamps have now.
There's even more information on our new Stella Lighting page.
Charming new designs from Italy!
from Cuore e Batticuore
We have new designs that are enchanting! Direct from Italy, here are three just to give you an idea of the rest we have!!! Not much English instruction inside of these, the charts are beautifully presented in color... you could almost frame that teacup one!!!! I think they are all worked on Lambswool -- we have several different counts available -- with DMC floss. I think there are a few overdyeds, but then DMC blends are suggested.
I love the teacup sampler -- just stitch one cup if you don't want to do them all! The floral vases and baskets come for all four seasons -- six designs in each chart. And, those ADORABLE little elf/gnomes steal the show! We have this Anniversary piece, a Valentine design and another that is a delightful Christmas Sled scene. All offered as charts, unique designs!!

Crazy Quilting in Cross Stitch from Carolyn Manning Designs
Here's a charming chart of 4 different Crazy Quilted squares -- only they are stitched with DMC rather than fabric pieced. Something pretty I came across, each 60 x 60 stitch count square is garnished with backstitches and a few beads. Meant to resemble mini quilts, you can add metallic, buttons, charms or even more beads if you want... anything goes with these. They'd make pretty pin cushions or needlecase fronts.
Worked on just about any fabric you like... everything is covered with stitching... so just choose something easy on your eyes. Very colorful, all 4 squares and some beads are included in the chart.
The Classic Ornaments Collection
from Country Cottage Needleworks
Nikki has announced her next series of designs... a set of 12 ornaments worked in the classic red and green Christmas colors. The first releases mid-August and will continue till all 12 are released. Each is offered as a small chart -- various sizes and 32ct fabrics -- each uses DMC and hand-dyed flosses. JABCO buttons are optional each time. The first offering is *Angels* which measures 63 x 53 and features a bell button and Classic Colorwork's Ladybug floss.
This is tough one to offer on an auto while including all the variables, so we're choosing to include the chart and button each month. Fabric is YOUR call... and you might not need all the flosses... but as this progresses... we'll know a lot more.
A Smidgen of Halloween
from Heart in Hand
Heart in Hand has a new tiny design, and it's really cute! Just a bitty medley of even bittier stuff, it finishes approx 3 x 4 on 32 -- but choose something else to do it on if you want to.
The small card chart comes with an orange button (down there by the 31st) and a few green and white beads you'll use in eyes and that top border. I think that green jack-o-lantern is so funny -- he steals the whole picture! Just a *Smidge* of a thing!
Gobble & Give Thanks
from Heart in Hand
Here's a neat piece -- perch it flat on your table or horizontally on the wall! Absolutely precious, this has a stitch count of 21 high by 269 wide -- so it is approx 1-1/3 inches by almost 17 worked on 32ct Lambswool linen. It would be so cute as a stuffed cushion filled with walnut shells -- decorating the dining room table or perched on a windowsill!!!
Charted for DMC or overdyeds, there is a set of clay buttons embellishing -- it has leaves, birds and pumpkins. Quite a fast piece to work up, the chart is printed very large inside the leaflet, and I'm thinking just an evening or two TOPS to get this stitched! It is CUTE! Offered as the leaflet with buttons separate.
from The Scarlett House
Scarlet House presents "Hannah's Brownstone." A charming 7 x 6 piece worked on 36ct Edinborough Linen with 12 shades of Weeks Dye Works flosses... it has a lot of visual symetry and gorgeous colors of brick, chestnuts and gunmetal greys.

Mes Travaux d'Aiguilles from Cmon Monde
A cute needlework sampler... I love the pic! What a charming seamstress complete with straight pins in her hair!!! Stitched on a natural linen, the tiny quilt is on a separate piece of white and attached after it is stitched. (I think the mini-hoop in her hand is as well... but I don't know where to find that little bitty hoop!) The spools are Satin stitched, and the panel of lace at the bottom needs to be something special off an old handkerchief or something special to you.
Just a cute piece to hang in your stitching room. Maybe a fun padded hanging to drape over the back of rocking chair?? Stitched with Gentle Art's Barn Grey, Heirloom Gold, Summer Shower along with DMC in black and flesh colors. Offered as a chart.
Just Bee from Hands On Design
Hands On Design has a sweet yellow, black and grey design that is finished into a small-ish pyn pillow. *Just Bee* is stitched with only 6 different DMCs on 32ct white Belfast linen (14ct Aida will work beautifully as well.) to finish approx 3 x 3. The chart comes with the cuts of pretty yellow, gray, black and white finishing fabric, as well as the black and white twisted cording you see in the model pic. The bee ornament on there is in the package -- he's a good half-inch in size, and complements the colors so well.
Just a small, summery project... finish it and add it to that magical basket of stuffed pin cushions I'm always talking about!!! Offered as the chart with finishing fabrics, cord and bee.
July & August from Cross Eyed Cricket
Cross Eyed Cricket continues with her creative set of months spelled out with all sorts of fun motifs. July and August are here... and they are especially festive.

The Gingerbread Bakery Cupcakes
from The Victoria Sampler
These are the CUTEST ornaments we have seen in so long... you are going to be enchanted by them! Last year's Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue Magazine featured the Gingerbread Man Cupcake included in VS's newest leaflet of THREE stitched cupcakes! Gingerbread Cupcakes features charts for the tops of three cakes, Snowmen, Gingerbread Men and Holly Leaves, along with finishing instructions to assemble them into colorful silicone baking cups.
You'll probably want the corresponding Accessory pack of all the threads, metallics, cute buttons, all the 'candy beads' and those bright red baking cups... everything you'll need except the topping fabric is in the accs pack. We'll be sending you 28ct Linen that is close to the 28ct Antique Almond called for (AA hasn't been available for almost a year!)... so you stitch a trio of cupcakes for your Christmas Tree -- we think these are so creative, cute, colorful, charming, unique and too pretty to eat!
Mystic Christmas Sampler
from The Victoria Sampler
This is beautiful! It is a nautical-flavored Christmas sampler based on the carol 'I Saw Three Ships.' Worked on 28ct Misty blue linen with loads of silks and Pearl cottons, Thea always stuffs lots of specialty stitches and tiny details in her band samplers, and this one is no different.
The tall ships have billowing sails, the rolling waves are worked with Bargello stitches, there are tiny bead touches here and there, bits of small scenes are worked over one thread, and little snowflakes dot the sky everywhere. Finishing approx 4-1/2 x 14, Thea describes this as a 'Historic Seaport Sampler.' Offered as the leaflet with separate accessory pack.
Pretty Offerings from Samplers Not Forgotten
We have several neat sampler charts in the shop's bookracks. My few words really don't do any of them justice... but generally, you know when you first see a sampler if it is going to 'speak to you'... here are two by Samplers Not Forgotten... we have more when you click the pics!
More cute editions from The Stitching Shed!
Absolutely the happiest palette of thread colors in these designs -- we just LOVE them all! They are Happy, Cheerful, Smiley, Bright and truly unique. Some are fun for a sunny kitchen window, but most need to find a home in the bedroom of some special little person of yours. Personalize them for bedroom signs or make bed pillows out of them... they are just the freshest, sweetest designs!
All are coded for Anchor Floss -- if you don't have it, go on-line and look for a conversion to DMC. The cover pictures are clear enough that you could even just match up DMCs and hand-dyeds from those!
Fun New Offerings from Threads That Bind
Shawn does the BEST Punch Needle designs... and here are three of her newest!!! Always very clearly printed on khaki Weaver's cloth, you are provided with a HUGE cut (like 14 x 16) of fabric -- because Shawn likes to use Morgan Stands and wants your entire working design to be visible in the frame. Not too involved or intricate, you are punching with NORMAL DMC floss -- so leave the expensive overdyeds for other projects! You get all the hand-dyed look just by changing DMC colors.
USA Square from The Sweetheart Tree
Well... a little late for THIS year's 4th of July... but here in plenty of time for next year!
A small 4-1/2 inch square of letters, stars and stripes, this comes as a complete kit of 28ct Summer Khaki Linen with al the threads and litlle embellishments. It'll make a cute stand-up cube, too!
Sisters Three Pinkeep from Stacy Nash
Here's a sweet piece -- finished into a small pin cushion pillow. Stitch count is 51 x 64, making it finish approx 3 x 4 on 32ct. With the bit of homespun finishing fabric, the overall pillow will be 4 x 6-ish.
Worked in Gentle Art's Brethren Blue, Straw Bonnet and Apple Cider, it will make a nice addition to your basket of stuffed cushions! (Note: the stitch count and finished size is mis-quoted on the instructions... be advised when you cut your fabric. Doesn't hurt the design... just confuses you a bit!)
Grand Old Flag from Rosewood Manor
Rosewood Manor has a cool new piece that she is using as a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project! Worked on Weeks Dye Works Cocoa 36ct linen... choose something a little whiter or browner if the yellow in this isn't your favorite look. You'll need 4 skeins of Weeks Linen, 1 Gunmetal, 3 skeins of Bordeaux and 5 skeins of Deep Sea!
Only the 4 colors in this 157 x 213 piece... there are lots of small sections in here that you can divide out into smaller projects. Something neat for a family room... offered as a leaflet, 10% of the sales of the charts go to Wounded Warriors.
The Sweet Temper Sampler from Shakespeare's Peddler
An original design by Theresa Venette of Shakespeare's Peddler, this is a lovely piece with a summery feel. She wanted something that dealt with emotion, hence the verse; *Let your temper be as sweet as the daisies at your feet, be as gentle be as mild be a modest humble child.*
The neat primitive border is different everywhere, and Theresa mentions that she has stuffed lots of little motifs in here -- just where-ever. There are Spider Web roses in the basket which are stunning! A very pretty piece... this measures 301 x 297 -- so finishes a generous 19 x 19-ish on 32ct. Offered as a chart, coded for silks or DMC, so get out your overdyeds and see what you can customize to your piece!!
Its Back to Campus With Your New Vera Bradley!
Backpacks, Lunch Bags, Student Agendas, Pens, Pencils and Notebooks... we have a lovely new shipment of FUN STUFF for Back-To-School!!!
Ziggy Zinnia, African Violet and Pink Swirls are the newest colors... all of the cotton pieces will be in the shop shortly. School Things came early!!!
Less Bitching, More Stitching!
from AB Designs
Doesn't need much more explanation than that!!!!! Grab a cute fabric and your bright colors of regular DMC floss and stitch this as the traveling banner for your stitch group meetings!!!!!
It'd make a cute personal stitching case as well... (in case you'd rather have a more private reminder!) Just a fun design, this is offered as a chart with optional button pack. On 28ct it finishes approx 7-1/2 x 8-1/2.
from AB Designs
This is SO CUTE! Ms Amy has outdone herself with this fun pagent of Trick-or-Treat hopefuls! Worked on the delicious 30ct Weeks Peoria Purple Linen in both Weeks and Gentle Art overdyeds, it finishes a petite 6 x 9. You can do the whole thing, or split everyone up and make smaller individual stand-ups.
Colors are fun, subject matter is over-the-top creative... you could even do those stars in metallic, and put beads in the witch's dress. Offered as the chart with packet of mini metal brads and rubber band embellishments!
Back in Stock! Last Stitch Cemetery and Dark Shadows!
Two of our favorite Hinzeit patterns have floated through the shop doors again! Cute charms and even cuter motifs to put them onto... that Last Stitch Cemetery features graves for *Started & Forgotten*, *1/2 Stitched*, *Too Old* and *Lost Interest!*
Both are Hinzeit's classic 3 x 13 finsihed size, offered as charts, and include the set of charms.
Patterned Pretties #7
from Jeannette Douglas
Jeannette Douglas has a new small pin cushion design that is a Bargello Stitch pattern worked on 32ct Flax Linen. Offered as a small kit of pattern, Weeks hand-dyed wool for the backing and a luscious set of hand-dyed silk threads, really just choose a light neutral fabric as your base, and you'll be happy.
A 3-1/2 x 4 inch panel of beautiful stitching... the threads are really the show-offs here... they are a mixture of soft lilac, olive greens and buttermilks. Bargello is simply a pattern of Satin Stitches, repeating and very organized. This whole set of small pin cushion designs is just amazingly pretty!
En route pour Noel from Tra La La
Oh my gosh... is this a little train of friends going to visit Santa? The reindeer and his bird-buddy are leading the wagon-train of snowman and snowbunny -- and presents!
With a stitch count of 57 x 137, this will finish approx 3-1/2 x 9 on a 32ct. Coded for DMC, it's just the cutest design idea, and offered as a chart. Designed by Tra La La's Corinne Rigadeau.
Le Linge de Blanche from Zaza Picque
Oh my gosh... I think this is laundry day!!! By Za Za Picque,(these come from France) this measures 110 x 79 stitches, is worked on an antique white linen, and coded for DMC or Gentle Arts Sampler Threads.
I just love this piece! Wouldn't it be pretty in a laundry room... or even better... sewn onto the front of a lingerie traveler bag? If you are an *organic gal* -- stitch it for the front of your wooden clothespin basket! Offered as a chart.
A Quaker Banana Fob
from Primitive Jewel
We're having quite the debate among the shop gals... some say this is NOT what they would spend their stitching time on... but ohhhh... I bet someone out there has a banana fetish, banana tree, pet monkey or SOME reason why this is a definite to stitch!! (We don't know if the Quakers ate bananas... even that entered the debate!)
Offered as a chart by Primitive Jewel, this little guy is stitched over one on Week's 30ct Gold linen with Mocha, Whiskey, Olive and Pecan overdyeds... and the favored fruit measures a mere 1-1/2 x 3 in size!!!! He's a little mini-banana!!!!
Cute Minis from Dames of the Needle
This is a cute set of smalls that all fit on miniature Nantucket Baskets we have! First choose your basket -- tall or small. Then choose your topper! Each small chart is worked on 35ct linen -- you'll need a 6 x 6 ish cut and comes with a bit of Elizabeth's hand-dyed rik-rak trim that you can see in the pics. She has a new line of hand-dyed trims *From the Cauldron!*
Anyway, Flower Pin includes a cut of Mild Chili 1/2 inch rik rak trim. Bird Pin Topper comes with a generous cut (my package has a full yard in it!) of Italian Custard. (Isn't that a luscious name?) The ABC HB Pin Cushion Topper and Basket Band Companion set are cute by themselves... but the HB in the name refers to a HORNBOOK design they match that was published in the January/February Issue if Just Cross Stitch Magazine. They each feature Watermelon Juice Rik Rak! Pretty darn cute... easy to stitch and finish on the precious miniature baskets... I'm sure you have threads already in your stash for these, too!
Wabbits!!! from Sheepish Designs
We've had these little guys over the years... and recently I discovered so many more of them that we had run out of! So, I did a nice big fat order of them... and here they all are back together again!!! Absolutely the cutest little Wabbits, they are doing all sorts of things for the Holidays, and are finished with a pretty silk ribbon rouching technique.
Wabbit's Garden was originally published in 1999 -- it is one of the only ones that incudes the small scissor fob carrot. Uncle Sam -- the newest one is from 2002. They all call for hand-dyed linen and threads -- but since these are over 10 years old, those floss offerings were much slimmer than they are now. You may want to tweak your colors a bit. Just the cutest little things, they are all the same size -- 54 x 98 stitches.
Three GORGEOUS Samplers from Reflects de Soie
Thank Goodness I speak *Symbols and DMC!* Here are three stunning sampler reproductions that I couldn't resist! The images here just don't do them justice.
All offered in chart format -- no English in the instructions (but really no wording at all). All three are charted for various silks or DMC floss. We have nothing else like these, so don't pass them by... ENJOY!!!
Flag of Stars from Bent Creek
Bent Creek has a new kit -- a red, white and blue confection of stars that make up a flag. It finishes approx 6 x 6 over two on 18ct Natural Linen, and is worked with DMC #5 Pearl Cottons.
SUPER easy to see and stitch, make sure you have a large #18 or #20 needle... I don't see one in my package! Something fun to finish in a jiff!
Patriotic Sampler from Jeannette Douglas
Wow... my buddy Jeannette Douglas has released a trio of patriotic designs that are stunning! (This is cool because she is a Canadian... but she 'gets us' so well!!) Patriotic Sampler is so "Ding Dang Cute" in Jeannette's words... it finishes 6 x 12-3/8 on 32ct Lambswool Linen.
Stitched in elegant cranberries, greys, blues and creme silks this piece is LOADED with gorgeous medallions and special stitches. The stars at the top and bottom are over 12 threads. Bargello waves and those cute stars and stripes hearts in there -- the colors are rich and yummy. That whole star motif area is 60 stitches square... so you have to count correctly! The bonus, however, is to watch the shading in your threads play out in the stitch patterns. The silk thread packet includes a set of 12 buttons and eagle and flag charms. Just lovely, this is offered as the leaflet with thread pack separate.
Stars Pin and Scissor Roll from Jeannette Douglas
This is a delicious little creation... worked on 32ct Natural Linen in Gentle Art Simply Wools, it is a cushion that measures approx 2-1/2 x 6-1/2 when finished. Buckeye Scarlet, Schoolhouse Red, Oatmeal, Roasted Marshmallow, Midnight, Dungarees and Old Crow, gorgeous, rich colors, they all make the Scotch, Rice and Milanese Stars pop! The big white star at the top goes over 44-ish threads.
No Cross Stitch in this at all -- just those beautiful Long Stitch Variations. This is offered with the chart, Simply Wool threads, a smattering of 6 mini-buttons, and the cuts of Weeks hand-dyed wool -- the deep blue and red Glen Plaid -- for the finishing. You'll need stuffing. As for the little fob pictured there... it is a FREE chart... details inside!
Flag Needlekeep from Jeannette Douglas
A companion piece to the Stars Roll, this features the same color palette of Simply Wools -- Buckeye Scarlet, Schoolhouse Red, Oatmeal, Roasted Marshmallow, Midnight, Dungarees and Old Crow -- just a gorgeous selection. Worked on 32ct Natural Linen, this finishes approx 3-1/4 x 4-3/4. Stuffed with cool stitches again, the entire red and white striped part is done with small Satin Stitches. Your two reds give you that color play on there.
Offered as a small kit, you get the chart, Simply Wools, buttons and the blue wool for the little heart, and red for the case lining. Jeannette added her own decorative brass button to the front of the case -- that is not included -- but she suggests something special from your stash that you like better! A lovely small project with lots of stitching and color impact!
Barbara Ana's Crows
We have two new designs by Barbara Ana -- a Patriotic Crow and a Halloween one!
from The Drawn Thread!
Cynthia's 6th Garden Scene Sampler -- we now have all four seasons as well has the Herb and Butterfly Gardens. Always the charming house in the center... she surrounds it with a LAVISH blooming garden of all the things quintessential to its season! With a stitch count of 289 x 63, this finishes (like the rest) at approx 4 x 18, and is worked on 32ct Summer Khaki Linen.
It is coded for Needlepoint Inc and Dinky Dyes silks... and **for a limited time**, we have the thread packs available as well! (sorry, no open-stock thread packs) We LOVE, LOVE these gardens, because Cynthia loads them full of special stitches that look neat even on the CHART, not to mention stitched in person!
Sonny The Snowman Pendant
from Faby Reilly
Isn't his little guy CUTE????? He is a THREE-SIDED pendant stitched on 32ct Antique White Belfast Linen with regular DMC flosses. Each of the three sides is an individual design -- Sonny, his mittens, and that charming top hat and bird perched atop. Each side measures approx 6 inches long and 3 inches wide. So if you construct this into the pendant, it'll make a generously sized tree ornament.
So cute and different, you can trim up the edges a little and make a neat beaded hanger if you like. Offered as a chart.
Mill Hill Presents Christmas 2014!
24 New designs to dazzle -- you'll have plenty of time to work on these since Summer isn't even here yet!!!!

Every year, we are treated to collections of Halloween and Christmas designs in various issues of Just Cross Stitch Magazine. The Christmas Ornament Issues have been around since the 90's, and the Halloween ones began several years ago. Let me organize all four issues that everyone loves to collect each year. We can send them to you as they are released... or hold them all for shipment when they finally arrive. (My quoted prices are from memory... I know they aren't all the same price... but these are pretty close. And... watch the release dates... see if you can wait that long.)
Before we list everything... this is a great time to remind you of all the past issues of JCS Magazines... 1991 through 2000, and then 2001 through 2010... 20 years of magazines are now all in PDF format on CDs! EVERYTHING is beautifully organized and presented... absolutely and totally wonderful! (The premier Ornament Issue is on the 91-00 collection) Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly has a CD too!
Holy Family, Little Drummer Boy and A Long Winter's Nap Stockings
from Heaven & Earth Designs
Heaven & Earth delivers the most stunning charts of famous works of art for Cross Stitch... I definitely cannot do any of Michelle's things justice with just a few words. This is a trio of designs -- each offered in it's own chart format -- that promise heirloom stockings to treasure forever. NOT for the faint-of-stitcher, or one who catches *a few hours here and there for relaxation* -- you need to be serious about stitching to commit to making even just one of these.
from Heaven & Earth Designs
Here is a set of 4 *Ornament* designs -- they each measure 175 stitches in diameter -- so over ONE on 25ct, they finish 6 inches in size! Pretty generous for ornaments!!!!!! SOOOO.... what about gorgeous framed pieces worked over two on something reasonable like 32? That'd make them 11 x 11! Scott Gustafson's work is showcased in the Decorating The Wreath piece, while Donna Gelsinger's work appears on the other three.
89 and 90 Colors of DMC floss in each, as you can see the shading and design details are incredible. The charts are very involved... clearly printed... but challenging to follow because of all the design detail and color changes. Blow up the charts, and get a highlighter to mark areas you've already stitched. Just amazing charts and designs to look at... some of you can stitch these, and you are just as amazing!!!
Elephants Walk from Fern RidgeCollections
***The Fern Ridge Gals have been busy again... we have 10 new things...!!!
Elephants Walk is just one pair and makes me want to go to Africa!!! A matching 10-ish x 2-ish sewing case and scissor fob the colors in these are stunning -- cinnabar, cucumber green, golds and black. The COMPLETE kit for the little case is amazing! You get the 28ct Cashel Linen, the cinnabar printed lining fabric, chart for the little parade of elephants tramping across the outside your case, and small panels inside.
Lovely beads for the edge trim are here, beads and a magnet for the closure loop, and a tiny crystal butterfly for one of the palm trees. Three different brands of floss are in here, along with Gloriana silk. Because the little case has interior pockets, you even get the tiny wooden elephant thread winder -- it is 1-1/8 inches, and a 2-inch ruler... along WITH the black 3-inch scissors AND a 1-1/2 inch elephant thread waxer!!! (They tell us that shape is made using an antique candy mold!)
THEN... you'll need the matching Elephants Walk Peyote Stitch scissor fob -- remember, you have the scissors in the sewing roll kit! It is a small piece that features lavish beaded fringe and a neat elephant charm. Same awesome colors, and another crystal butterfly! The fob is offered as a complete kit as well.
Make sure you click to see the other 5 charming sets of fobs, boxes and matching cases!
