What a cute bitty set of fob and matching cushion! I love the colors of Gentle Art flosses -- Grasshopper, Country Redwood, Soot, Old Hickory, Chalk, Piney Woods and Black Licorice, the cushion measures 95 x 71, while the baby fob is just 29 x 36!
Garnished with 4 black buttons... this is so simple, but so striking! Offered as the chart.
You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl! This 256 x 143 stitch count sampler finishes approx 16 x 9 on 32ct... and is stitched with Gentle Art Sampler Threads. Tanya says this piece features several of her childhood memories of growing up in The Heartland of America. The corn, the cool barn, check out the cute chicken, too. The willow tree is neat, the house is organized and so is the garden... everything in here has it's place and purpose on the family farm.
A pretty piece, you could personalize it with the family name and a *date established* especially if it was a long time ago! Chart format -- choose virtually any fabric you want to stitch on -- just something that will allow the light 'Picket Fence' color of floss in the house an fence to show up.
Several New Things from The Scarlett House
We have 5 new releases by Tanya, all of them are presented in chart format...
Find Comfort -- 'and peace at home.' Well, that's pretty basic and good advice! Stitch count is 109 x 81 -- so generous on 36ct at 6 x 4-1/2.
Patriotic Scissor Pocket -- Inspired by antique pottery stoneware crocks, this sports a grand bouquet of summer splendor! The wavy flag in there, the charming sawtooth border -- both are accented with RED scissors (of which we have several offerings!) Main design is 98 stitches square -- approx 6 x 6, and the fobs are coordinating smaller bits of the larger design.
Center Point Sampler -- Wow, this is gorgeous in person! On 32ct, it finishes approx 7-1/2 inches square, and is coded for silk or DMC floss. The colors are bold, and I LOVE something about the organized picture this presents. I don't know if it's the border lines, the squares and their interruptions or simply the gorgeous solid, exciting motif in the center -- those greens are so yummy! I think you could even split this apart -- stitching each main square with its particular part of the middle, along with the middle panel, and make a basket of 5 pin cushions to nestle together -- as 'bowl fillers' in your bowl!
Coverlet Candle Mat
Inspired by Pennsylvania Dutch woven coverlets, this calls for only three Gentle Art Sampler Threads -- Country Redwood, Harvest Basket and Wrought Iron.
You'll want a piece of wool for the back of this -- (design is only 6 x 8 on 35ct) so you might want to find something pretty first and then match your threads. Calming little piece!
Mary Cook 1795 Sampler
A traditional Adam & Eve piece -- this finishes approx 14 x 15 on 40ct.
Coded for Classic Colorworks Belle Soie Silks, very symetric and organized, Tanya owns the original sampler in her personal collection!
Be of Good Cheer
Here's a sweet piece that is worked on the 28ct Natural/Ivory Graziano (from Italy) Gingham Linen. (Weeks has hand-dyed some as well -- another color option.) Worked with just 5 colors of DMC floss, it is shown mounted into a really cool 5 x 7 metal tray from Hobby Lobby! (Information about the tray comes inside the chart with your purchase.)
Super cute finishing for this simple piece that finishes a mere 3-1/2 x 5. Offered as a chart... you may want to change the date of 1837 on there to something else that has significance to you.
Pumpkin, Pumpkin ...on the vine... how'd you get so very fine? This is shown stitched over one thread for a cool pin cushion finishing treatment. The stitch count is actually pretty good sized -- 152 x 86, so if you choose over two on 28ct, it'll be a generous 11 x 6-1/2!
Offered as a chart, choose a neutral fabric and grab Week's flosses of Fawn, Putty, Chickpea, Cocoa, Swiss Chocolate, Flatfish, Bark, Onyx and Cognac. Then, trim with a bit of chenille trim -- we have several really good color options!!!
The Queen's Garden & Life on Sampler Hill
A pair of new designs by The Scarlet House, both are offered as small charts.
The Queen's Garden is cute... the model is presented on 40ct (again, choose ANY fabric you like best -- YOU are the one stitching and enjoying it!) Putty from Weeks Dye Works is the yummy background color, and the pattern uses a mixture of over-dyed flosses, (which we always like better than the regular DMCs.) Perfect Pie Crust, Forest Glade, Seagull, Oatmeal, Black Licorice, Gingersnap, Mustard Seed, Old Hickory, Roasted Marshmallow, Picnic Basket, Weathered Barn, Garden Gate and Cucumber are the choices. It finishes approx 6 x 3-1/2 on the 40 ct, and the model shows rik-rak trim all around.
Life on Sampler Hill measures 120 x 108 in stitch count so will finish approx 7 x 7-1/2 on 32ct. You can choose ANY count fabric you wish... this is coded for both DMC and Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses. I love that big blue house, the repeating patterns of the leaves and that solid green yard... so the hand-dyed flosses will really be showcased in this design-- choose those! It uses Blackbird, River Rocks, Sunkissed, Caterpillar, Blacksmith Blue, Stepping Stones, Antique Lace, Joshua Tree, Ladybug, Cherry Cobbler, Hazelnut, English Ivy, and Whatley Woodlands.
Pin Keeps and Scissor Weights
We have a pair of new charts by Tanya Brockmeyer that are pin cushions with coordinating smaller scissor fob designs. The charts are beautifully presented and the front covers are LOVELY! She does PERFECT photography for you... you could probably stitch off the cover pics!
A Few Favorite Things has the most interesting color palette -- It is so different, but I absolutely LOVE it! I don't know if it's the punch of the acid green against the soft red-pear, or the golden inside of that pear -- I want to cut up green apples and ripe pears and sit down right now and eat them! Stitched on 40ct Aztec Red by Weeks, the main cushion finishes approx 4 inches in size. Strawberry House is much softer -- all Gentle Art Sampler Threads in dusty grays and raspberries. Again 4 x 4-ish, we're into *bowl-fillers* these days... (a ridiculous new buzz-word on HGTV!) A Soft Tin-Roof-color with a chalk-y house... the berries are growing in the wild garden.
A Sampler Grows *Inch by inch, row by row, X's make my sampler grow* Scarlet House has a charming pin cushion design that features a tiny companion 'fob' for the cushion. It's shown on scissors, but I think it'd be cute attached to the cushion itself. Generous in size, it measures 119 x 64, so finishes approx 3-1/2 x 6-1/2 on 36ct.
Charted for Needlepoint Silk, it's an easy one to convert to cotton hand-dyeds if you'd rather use them. Offered as a chart... isn't the pink rik-rak finishing striking on there? Scarlet House has several other new releases... scroll down to see them!
Oh, I like this one! That beautiful repeating positive/negative color scheme... I don't know which way I like it better! Wouldn't it be neat to stitch BOTH ways, and finish your pillow with BOTH pieces of needlework?
Calling for only DMC 3857, 3021, 420 and 310, the stitch count is 145 x 80 -- making this finish approx 5-1/2 x 8 on 36ct.
Very simple, but very striking! Offered as the chart.
Susan Wasband Sampler
A reproduction chart by Scarlet House, this is a charming sampler -- Adam and Eve. The whole serpent/tree/Garden of Eden theme at the bottom, you then get gorgeous urns of flowers at the bottom, and then the awesome house and gardens along the top! It's almost like two different samplers in one chart. *Susan Wasband is my name and with my hands I worke the same that all the world may plenty see what car (no e) my parent took with me.*
There was no date added... so pick one yourself, and change the name to YOU! This is a pretty piece -- measuring approx 15-1/2 square if you choose 28ct to work it. Smaller linen will make it smaller in size. it would be a good beginning sampler to work -- the border is regular!!!!! Offered as a chart.
Very simple, but very striking! Offered as the chart.
In The Pines
Mmm... lush evergreens, a log cabin (even though it looks pretty big and sprawling!) and the wool coverlets... this needs to be stitched for a log cabin! Offered as a chart, this is worked on Week's 36ct (we have 30ct as well) Straw Linen with hand-dyeds.
Picture those coverlets stitched as individual pin cushions!!!!!! Just a pretty piece, it finishes 6 x 8-ish.
Penny Pumpkin and Pumpkins & Bittersweet
Scarlet House has a pair of new designs that are very pretty and appropriate to the Fall Season. Two small designs to make into walnut-shell-stuffed cushions to pack into that ever-growing basket of stitched cushions! Tuck several different projects into one basket, and leave it on an end table or counter... something fun people will dig through to see them all!
Penny Pumpkin is worked on a medium-toned linen -- something to let the Sampler Thread Oatmeal color of the main pumpkin stand out. Stitch count is 112 x 87, so it'll finish approx 5 x 7 on 32ct. The border is reminiscent of a woo; penny rug, and it'd be pretty done with bits of colored wools instead of the stitching -- if you're creative!
Pumpkins & Bittersweet is a little smaller -- 3 x 5-1/2, and is also worked with Gentle Art Sampler Threads. She has it charted so that you can stitch 'bittersweet' over one OR two threads.
Polka Dots and Alphabets
This is a charming project bag, fob and pin cushion set Stitched with only 4 colors of Sampler Threads on the new 32ct Natural Belfast linen that has red polka dots printed on it...it's just the cutest thing! Black Licorice (2 skeins), Picnic Basket, Buckeye Scarlet and Chalk... it features Weeks Dye Works Candy Apple (any of the 4 patterns in our Schnigglet-cut size will do nicely) hand-dyed wool for the penny rug 'tongues' ... one pic has them buttoned down with black buttons, the other shows white X's. The thread spools are 'wrapped'with Satin Stitches... everything is so crisp and cute!
The tiny fob finishes approx 2-1/2 x 1-1/2 -- it is over one. The pin cushion measures 64 x 110 stitches -- but it is over one as well - so finishes approx 2 x 3-1/2. The main sewing case features Eyelet stitches in the alphabet, and those fun wool pennies, with the motifs worked over one thread again. It's stitch count is 105 x 145 -- so it finishes about 7 x 9. I love the colors, I love the polka dots, and I love the wool touches! Get out some red scissors, too!
Button Eyed Cat
Hey, this is kind of a cute thing! Stitch a glaring cat face to tuck beside some of your other Halloween decorations, or make a small ornament/fob -- the stitch count on this is only 62 x 66. Stitch the eyes, or make them from buttons, you'll need your favorite fabric plus Sampler Threads of Oatmeal, Gold Leaf, Raven and Tomato.
Offered as a chart... the tiny fob you see on there is a mere 30 x 30 stitches -- kind of a little bonus.
Sleigh Rides and Snowflakes
Here's a chilly scene, cold and quiet! Stitch the entire thing, or leave off the words -- there are big snowflakes in the background (sort of hard to see in our image, but they're there!) that you can re-arrange in behind the evergreens. Scarlet House presents this design in chart format that is worked on a dusky hand-dyed -- lots of good colors come to mind (like Week's Tin Roof).
The stitch count is 220 x 138, and colors listed are either Sampler Threads or DMC. Dried Thyme, Forest Glade, Country Redwood, Wood Smoke, Tin Bucket, Chalk, Picnic Basket, Wood Trail, Deep Forest and Espresso Bean... you can just feel the deep, quiet colors. The dogs and bunnies are worked over one thread -- everything else is over 2.
Mary Ann Farmer
This is a pretty sampler -- an reproduction of an antique or originally stitched in 1834. With a stitch count of 259 x 193, choose a favorite count you like and work this in either Needlepoint
Inc silks or DMC flosses (or check the conversions and find your own colors!) I like the beautiful, flowing florals in the urns and just the overall balance and organization of this piece.
I think it would be stunning if you chose either the right or left hand side and included the middle... much more square... but still lovely! Offered as a chart.
