Patriotic and Summer Designs
There are so many wonderful designs available that celebrate every season and occasion under the sun... so we thought it'd be fun to collect a few of them, and organize them for you on a set of Holiday/Seasonal Pages. I'm a "seasons" nut... so we'll be adding to these all the time! We have so many other projects and ideas in the shop, and elsewhere on the site, but this is a fun way to show you just a few ..... ENJOY!

Give Me a Home from The Sunflower Seed -- click to see a larger view Give Me a Home from The Sunflower Seed
Well... buffaloes do roam in Oklahoma and Kansas -- where The Sunflower Seed comes from -- so this little piece is charming to us. Kansas sunflowers make up the border that surrounds a cozy log cabin and notice those roaming buffalo. What is extra charming, however, is that tiny storm shelter built into the side of a hill!!!

In Oklahoma and Kansas, we are famous for our tornadoes, (remember Dorothy and Toto!!!) so wouldn't this be fun hanging on the family room wall??? Offered as the chart, it finishes approx 7 x 12 on 28ct.

Vacation Spots from The Trilogy -- click to see more Vacation Spots from The Trilogy
OK... this is the 14th of The Trilogy's little Spot Motif samplers, and it is just darling!!! Commemorating your favorite vacations... the tiny design includes the Statue of Liberty (the East?), a cruise ship (the South?), a road (the Midwest?), and a tent (the Western Mountains?)... all with a camera and AWESOME Passport charm! I think it'd be really cute on the front of a trip photo album... or cool inserted into a picture frame beside a neat vacation pic. Trilogy's passport charm

Get creative with this one... it's such a different subject, wouldn't it be cool to stitch it on your vacation so you could remember just WHERE you were when you were working on it? Offered as the little card with passport charm. Real Cute... find all the rest of them on our Trilogy Page???

Desert Garden Sampler from The Victoria Sampler -- click to see a larger view Desert Garden Samplerfrom The Victoria Sampler
Another (actually the 13th!) in Victoria Sampler's set of different seasonal and geographic gardens... this design takes us to the desert, and all the special vegetation a loving gardener would care for and appreciate!

Stitched on 28ct Ice Blue Cashel Linen in silks, and a few overdyed flosses, the 2 x 8 band sampler is loaded 'with rich earthy ochre colors and the unexpected blooms of dozens of graceful drought resistant native plants.' There are little animals scattered throughout the garden, lots of desert flowers, and special stitches for them as well!

A MUST if you live near or in the desert... or if you vacation there! Offered as the leaflet with silks, flosses and bead embellishments.

Wishing Thee Freedom from Homespun Elegance -- click to see more Wishing Thee Freedom
from Homespun EleganceThe patriotic companion to Wishing Thee Warmth -- Snowmen, Plenty -- Pumpkins, and Merriness -- Santa, this is another darling pillow design that features a border on only three sides of the design. Offered as a chart, your stitching finishes approx 5 x 9 on 28ct, and is full of rich overdyed color, with bits of regular DMC tossed in.

All four of the designs in this particular set are very popular in the shop... I think it's the three-sided border thing... actually taken from antique samplers, it's not something you see too often on pieces. Your Freedom piece is embellished with two of Olde Brass Flag buttons, and the little sheepies are stitched with Rainbow Gallery's Wisper thread, to make them wooly!

Oh Say!
from Shepherd's Bush
This is a miniature Shepherd's Bush design with a fat little sheep basking in the glow of his flag! Stitched on 32ct Antique Ivory Belfast Linen in overdyed Thread Gatherer and Glorianna silks, the featured button is a tiny handmade rosebud. Soft roses and dusty greens and blues, this finishes a mere 1-1/2 x 2-1/2, and features three special stitches! Complete kit contains the chart, linen, needle, silks and rosebud button.

Red, White & Blue
From Cross-Eyed Cricket
