Lone Elm Lane Designs
We present Lone Elm Lane Designs Early Wooden Wares and Designs -- Charming, traditional designs -- most that finish round to fit some very special hand-made boxes -- or rectangular to fit lovely cabinets or frames. The charts are all offered in leaflet format with different pictures of the finished project on both the front and back covers.
The featured boxes are Lone Elm's own handmade creations! VERY heavy and nicely done each box is hand-pieced and assembled... beautifully painted in one of four different colors and then distressed. The lids are 'reversible' in that they are recessed to fit different types of hand work. One of the sides is perfect for cross stitch or quilting... the other is deeper for hooked rugs. Currently the four box colors (some work for more than one design) are Wooly White, Aged Pewter, Robin's Egg and Black Iron. Boxes are offered in 6, 8 and 12-inch sizes.
This is a fun design -- all red, aged green and black -- in that yummy 'ceramic' bowl! On 28ct linen, this finishes approx 6 x 8-1/2, and calls for Dried Thyme, Tin Bucket, Onyx, Ruby Slipper, Aged Pewter and Hickory Sticks hand-dyed flosses.
Presented in a leaflet, it is featured in one of Lone Elm Lane's newest box styles -- The Cabin Box -- which features a divided tray inside.
Lone Elm Lane has a cute new pin cushion pattern that finishes just under 3-1/2 inches in size. Just 6 colors of hand-dyeds on a bit of neutral 16 aida or 32ct linen...it's just a nice seasonal something to have in your growing bowl of stitched lovelys.
NOW... check out her new Sewing Clamp Box in the pic! That is a new finishing piece, patterned after antique clamp boxes. The top has a 1-inch deep recessed area to frame your needlework. It's really a petite 4 x 4 x 4 box -- complete with a little pulling out drawer (can you see the knob down there in the pic?) THEN, the whole thing clamps to the edge of a table with a cool screwing pole on the bottom -- SUPER CHARMING!
Our first shipment of the boxes came in Stephanie's Vintage Dove finish. NOW, to muddy the waters... she'll make that awesome box in ANY of her 12 colors! (So those will be special order, 'cause I can't keep some of them all -- all the time! The 8-ish week wait will be worth it for you though, and you'll have to type your color choice into the comments box as you finish up your order if you want something other than the vintage Dove!)
New Sewing Clamp Box
A charming new box featured on the cover of With Thy Needle's newest design... this little box is SO COOL! A concept by Brenda Gervais that Stephanie Elmer brought to be... this hand-made wooden box measures approx 4 x 4 x 3 with a clamping system that reaches down another 6 inches. It features a 1-inch deep recessed opening for your needlework. Next, there is a little 3 x 3 square drawer approx 1-inch deep that pulls out, and finally, the bottom features a 6-inch screwing clamp attachment that can fit up to a 1-1/2 inch thick table edge!
By far the coolest little box I have seen in a while... what an endearing decoration for your needlework! Currently offered in only the Vintage Dove finish... what a fun and unique way to finish and display a pretty pin cushion! If you are worried about damaging a table, consider a piece of felt underneath the box between it and your table, and a bitty piece underneath. You might want to clamp it out of reach of little hands -- this is the most intriguing thing -- and awfully fun to play with!!!!!
Several New Arrivals from Lone Elm Lane -- Here are three of the five new!
Primitive designs offered as small charts, Stephanie Elmer has lots of new offerings for her awesome line of handmade *Early Wooden Wares* boxes and pin cushions.
These Old Bones and Hallowed Ground
Oh my gosh, these are SO CUTE!!!!! A pair of small designs offered as charts, they are both (unfortunately because it's so hard to see!) worked on 32ct Black Belfast Linen with DMCs and hand-dyed flosses. Each is shown in the top of one of Lone Elm Lane's newest Candle Box. A fun sliding-lid container, there is a divider inside so you have smaller compartments to organize your stitching!
The Candle Box
Wow... this is a new style of box --handmade in Lone Elm Lane's woodshop -- that has several charming features to it. Inspired by antique candle boxes that held cigars and documents, it measures approx 10 x 6 x 4 in size, features a chamfered -- a slide-off lid -- with a recess opening for needlework, and a divider inside to give you 4 small compartments.
Stitch one of the Halloween pieces for this or Love Birds. Offered in Vintage Slate, it is a finish that is washed on to highlight the clear pine grain, then lightly antiqued and sealed with cabinet grade protective matte top coat.
Mini-Shaker Pin Cushion Rounds
Lone Elm Lane has introduced empty rounds to house pin-cushions! Measuring 4 inches in diameter and approx 1-1/4 inches high, they are ready to house your puffy little 'hill' of needlework!
Offered in 6 colors so far (My pic accidentally has two of the red in it, and not Bittersweet, which is a bit more on the golden rust side.) They are the same finish and quality as Stephanie's larger boxes.
Also brand new are three leaflets with designs for her shaker boxes... take a peek!
The Birds & the Bees
A pretty clay pot filled with simple blossoms, look at how the alphabet begins at the base of the pot and travels clockwise... but is always right-side-up!
Choose either a round or square box for this... offered in leaflet format. Call us if you'd like to consult about a round or square box for this!
In The Moonlight|
This is real cute when it's stitched. The photo on the leaflet cover is very yellow... I am hoping we can correct that coloration in our picture for you. The grays, teals, browns and winter whites in here are soft and restful together... choose a rectangular box... or pretty gray mat.
Doesn't it look like a real scene until you realize its a snowman skating??? Only... the leaflet asks *What happens in the Moonlight when we sleep?*
Finishes approx 5 x 7 on 28ct.
In the Garden
This is an elegant study of grays, cream and black. Stitched on a dark gray linen, there are actually 10 different colors in this, but my eye sees about three!
Shown inside the top of Lone Elm Lane's 8 x 10 rectangular Crown Box in the Antiqued Black Iron finish... consider a distressed charcoal black frame for this as well.
So simple, it's kind of elegant. *In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth.*
Well, this is an eye-catching box-top! By Lone Elm's Stephanie, we have a very haunted house, complete with crumbling roof and overgrown landscaping. Choose any mangy darker 32 or 36ct linen to make this fit into the top of one of Lone Elm's Black Shaker Boxes. There is an invasive vine traveling everywhere, and even an empty grave!!! I personally love the little skeleton dog!!!
Anyway, charted for Weeks and DMC flosses, it's just a really fun design with some unique elements! Offered as the leaflet, we also have these luscious boxes -- which are a design favorite of Blackbird and Shepherd's Bush!
Lone Elm's Square Box -- 8 x 8 x 4
A Vintage Slate light blue-ish grey finish has been painted onto Lone Elm's hardwood, hand-made box. They have used an antique moulding style, cut it and constructed each box, applied their distressed *Vintage and Velvet* finish, sanded everything till it's butter-smooth... and even added a divided tool tray into this style!
Stephanie has a leaflet design -- True Friends -- that fits the top of the box... but since the recessed opening in the lid is 1/4 an inch deep and 6 inches square... I imagine you may also have something really special already in your stash to fit this!!!
It sounds really dumb... but this box SMELLS WONDERFUL inside! Such a clean, fresh, yummy wood flavor... I think it just adds to the charm, and lets me know that this didn't come off a 'slow boat from China!' It's handmade!
Gifts of the Spirit, Love One Another, Oh Glorious Day and Spring Angel
Lone Elm has 4 new leaflets with a bit brighter color than her first set of designs. Stitched on various counts of fabric, all four are shown mounted in the tops her 8-inch wooden Shaker boxes. Stitched on various counts of hand-dyed fabrics -- if you choose not to finish onto the box-tops -- you can choose any other counts you want!
I like Love One Another: *Love One Another -- Each different, yet each created by the hand of The Master, Therefore... Love One Another...*
Because the design is circular, the verse just goes round and round the box top! All four new designs are offered in individual leaflets.
Can you see her in the clouds and on the ground? A wispy, wintery scene of a quiet house and that cool evergreen tree that looks like a coverlet! I always tried to make those snow angels and not leave behind the tracks! (never figured it out!)
128 Stitches round, this finishes approx 7- 1/8 inches round on 36ct linen. It fits into the top of an 8-inch hand-made Shaker Box by Lone Elm. Coded for DMC or Gentle Art flosses, it's such a pretty design. The angel all around reminds me of a snow globe. Offered as a leaflet.
A sweet little pottery bowl sprouting a delightful array of soft blue wildflowers... this finishes approx 5-3/8 inches round on 36ct linen.
Stitched with either DMC or Gentle Art Sampler Threads, mount it into a box top, or make a stunning larger pin cushion! Offered as a leaflet, this features Lone Elm's 6-inch Aged Pewter Shaker Box.
On 30ct linen, this piece finishes a stunning10-7/8 inches round and fits into Lone Elm's 12-inch Wooly White Shaker Box. (special order item) The design is really pretty -- *For He shall give his angels charge over thee to keep thee in all thy ways.*
Stitched in both Weeks and Gentle Art hand-dyeds of whites, caramels and deep cranberry, can you see the color shading in the triangular border? That is done with two different hand-dyed colors to give it all that depth! Such a neat shape, gorgeous colors, very pretty for pillow, wall hanging... or of course, a box top! Offered as a leaflet.
Another design featuring the same verse as Holy Holy, and a companion angel to Snow Angel. *And He shall give his angels charge over thee to keep they in all of thy ways.*
This finishes approx 7-1/8 inches round on 36ct linen. It is worked in only two overdyeds -- Gentle Art's Burlap and Lexington Green -- it'll be stunning of several of Stephanie's boxes.
Just a pretty floral piece, personalize it with your family name on the pot near the bottom. On 32ct Copper Penny Linen, this finishes approx 10-1/2 x 12-3/8 inches. 11 Different shades of DMC and overdyeds. It is shown in Lone Elm's *Linen* cabinet -- a definite investment!
Cabinet info: Thanksgiving Sampler is framed in the door of the wooden cabinet, using turn buckles so that it can be switched with seasonal patterns. Cabinet size is 17 inches wide x 24-1/2 inches tall x 6-1/2 inches deep. It has two drawers on the bottom and two adjustable shelves inside. Door opening is 12 x 14, and it is painted and distressed. (Cabinet price is shocking!)
*The Earth is filled with His Glory. Give thanks unto the Lord for these cats & birds & flowers & bees.* Make this a Christmas-feeling piece by following the color recommendations, or change the Cayenne thread color to Cadet in the wording.
Stitched with an assortment of hand-dyeds and DMC, this finishes approx 14-1/2 inches square. It'll need to be worked on 32ct to fit the cabinet opening... but would be lovely framed as well. (Again, that cabinet price is shocking!)
A very simple design with really simple color application -- this is lovely! Stitched on 32ct Copper Penny in Weeks and Gentle Art hand-dyeds, this finishes approx 7-3/8 inches round.
The featured box is the 8-inch Wooly White. There is a lot of variation on the hand-dyed colors -- Stephanie is using more than one color of the blue, for instance, to achieve that look. Very Pretty, offered as a leaflet.
