Your cushion finishes approx 3 x 3, and features that gorgeous ribbon rouched around the edge, complete with black beads (which are almost impossible to see in the pic.) Just a fun, bitty thing, oooozing with Shepherd's Bush's personality!
Here is a companion sheep to the little guy in SB's new Creepy Pin cushion. This little sheepie is dressed up for Halloween, and visiting quite a cheerful graveyard -- complete with rotting bones in the ground! Pumpkins, a crow and a couple of bats flying around, it is just as full of tiny motifs as the Creepy Cushion.
Finish any number of ways... but you might recognize the black resin box that is in the pic... it's the same boxes Tina and Teri have used in several of their other small designs recently! Darn Cute, the complete kit comes with chart, linen, needle, flosses and a bit of hand-dyed silk. Black box is available separately.
A lovely piece that is a sampler within a sampler! Charming motifs and quirkly little stitches scattered everywhere... (do just the left-hand side, or just the right if you want) this is full of Shepherd's Bush charm! Little sheep and flowers, the verse reads; *She gathers her blessings from the earth, Joys offered simply to mark a life's worth.* LOVELY rich silks of raspberry, moss, grapes and buttermilks. The kit includes 2 nice, large photos of the actual stitching -- we laughed that you could just frame the band sampler one and be done with it!!!
Offered as a complete kit of 32ct hand-dyed linen, awesome hand-painted silks, and a smattering of tiny trinkets!
One of Tina and Teri's 10ct kits... this one features White Opalescent Tula! Perfect for a beginner kit -- they are even fun to do if you've been stitching for years, but just want something larger for a change! Flosses are bright colors of bubble gum pinks, oranges, bright purples and soft greens.
Complete kit comes with flosses and the fabric, and a tiny bee button!
A sweet little design, Sophie is tending to her garden blossoms, little sheep in tow! Stitched on 32ct hand-dyed Sandcastle Jobelan, the silks and flosses included in the kit are lovely.

A small design that is perfect for a pincushion or box-top -- Come Home is stitched on 32ct Lambswool Linen in soft green and berry shades of silk and floss.
It finishes a mere 3 x 3, and will take you 2 hours TOPS! to stitch! It depicts your home, the animals in the garden, and even the 'ship' returning from the sea! Cute!
A sweet design, this is stitched on 28ct hand-dyed Old Letters Linen in awesome shades of raspberry, plum and green silks. You have a tiny alphabet included so that you can add family initials all over in the vine border, and a few tiny trinket charms to embellish, as well.
Just a small piece, it finishes approx 3 x 5, and would be so pretty on the front of a photo album, or in a separate mat window below a favorite family photograph!
Love is Where you Plant it! Teri's newest design this is a spring garden full of happy, cheerful wildflowers. Stitched on 28ct Antique White linen, (28ct Lugana or 14ct Aida would be great with this, too) it is coded for overdyed flosses or DMC's -- your choice. Finishing approx 8 x 12, it features a smattering of Just Another Button Company buttons, little bees, bugs and flowers.
You'll notice that this companions with her newest Tiny Garden Scissor Fob and her little Free-Bee bumble bee charm along with it's freebie pin cushion design! A super-colorful, *quick stitch!*
Little Eggs Pincushion
What a fun little pointy Easter Basket design! *5 Little Eggs in a Basket Snug* is the verse... this design is stitched on a 32ct hand-dyed in dusty shades of roses, denims, lavenders and greens. It is embellished with a trio of small buttons, and finished with a flair -- Rouched Silk Ribbon edging, garnished with big, chunky glass beads!

The rest in this snowman set are just as charming... and when we line up the stitched and matted models in the shop, they are like a summer rainbow in the winter!!
Another 9-patch charted design, this one celebrates St Patrick's Day. Stitched on the antique white/khaki Newport Linen, this finishes just 3 x 3 -- just like it's dozen or so companion designs.
Offered as the chart.

Stitched on Weeks Dye Works 30ct hand-dyed Dove linen in a combination of Crescent Colours hand-dyed flosses, a bit of Old Lace silk, and a few perle cottons, she is offered as a small, complete kit. The grayed-green linen color mimics the cold, stormy winter sky but the wildflowers for her hair, warm scarf, and cute snowflakes in her little hill... make her quite the happy snowgirl!

New Sneak Peeks from Shepherd's Bush!They're Here!!! 4 New treats from Tina and Terri... Here's a quickie description of each.
*** Merry Be Pin Cushion -- A 4 x 4-ish design stitched in yummy silks of cranberry, juniper, buttermilks and creams, Merry Merry Be is the verse on this tiny thing! A trio of small buttons garnish, and the kit comes with the silk ribbon and beads used to trim the finished edges. (Fill with Lizard Litter if you want a pin cushion, poly-fill if you want an ornament!) Kit includes the chart, 30ct hand-dyed linen, silk threads and ribbon, beads, and buttons!
*** Take Joy -- A festive little urn is filled with Christmas Holly Greenery, stars, candy canes, glass ornament balls, and even a teeny-weeny sheep! Approx 3-1/2 inches round... this is stitched on 30ct hand-dyed linen in more of Tina and Terri's favorite color palette of silks -- berry and juniper. It is shown finished into a sleek little round black box, with a decorative beaded edge rim. Just a simple thing, hide something precious inside??? Offered as the kit of chart, linen, silks, the box is available separately.
*** Every Heart -- First in a new annual series of Christmas Hearts... *Let every heart prepare Him room* is the featured verse in this little piece. Approx 3 x 4, offered as a kit of chart, 30ct Weeks hand-dyed linen in Putty, and a matching hand-dyed button embellishment... the silks included are lovely cranberries, olive green and a rich dark gray. Mats by jill Rensel will follow in a few weeks!
This is a sweet piece, dedicated to any special friend you have! Stitched on 28ct hand dyed linen in 6 shades of silks -- two hand dyeds -- it features just Smyrna and Cross Stitches in it's petite 3 x 5 finished size. There are three tiny charm embellishments included, along with a charted alphabet for personalization.
Wouldn't it be fun to add initials of some special people along that vine? You could change the word 'Friend' to a name... you could add heirloom buttons here and there... just anything. VERY quick to stitch, it is offered as a complete kit, so it's even faster to grab and take along when you're in a rush! Real cute.
Our Hearts Pin Cushion & Safe Keeping Scissor Fob
I'm sure these two aren't a matching pair, but they just seem to go together anyway!!! Same designers, same linen, same silk, bead and beautiful hand dyed silk ribbon edging treatments... I don't know how you can choose one without the other! My Friends Hearts Cushion features Shepherd's Bush's flower basket on one side, and little scattered hearts on the other. (There is room for some initials on there!) Stitching measures approx 2-1/2 inches square.
Safe Keeping features a winding vine of those round roses on one side, and room for the verse or names on the other side. Both kits include the 32ct hand dyed linen, all the raspberry and olive silks, beads, charms, needles, and the elegant hand dyed silk ribbons for the edge treatments. You'll LOVE that little fob if you fill it with plastic pellet filling... it adds weight, and makes it 'softer and lazier' in your hand!
Here's another colorful-linen snowman piece! Companioned with Red, Green and Purple Snowmen... this little guy promises that the cold winter winds full of snow DO blow! Stitched on the new Weeks Dye Works 30ct Blue Jeans hand-dyed linen... the silks included in the complete kit are yummy winter whites, cranberries, avocado and denims, and embellishments include some matte-finish mini-buttons.
Now, actually, this is probably a GIRL snowman... because of the wreath of ivy and berries crowning her head! Finishes approx 5 x 6.
Presenting Tina's new patriotic sampler for the 2010 season, My Land features a shepherd couple tending the sheep and American flag. The border is a lovely, free-flowing floral vine that hides the verse of the piece -- the words to the song My Country 'tis of Thee! You have to look very closely to see those phrases... and it makes all of this so charming!
Offered as a complete kit, this is stitched on Weeks 30ct Parchment Linen in several shades of solid and hand-dyed silks -- lots of green, along with roses, dusky, and navy blues.
Finished size is approx 6 x 13-1/2. In looking at this... I like the bottom half without the top... and the top without the bottom... which, I guess, means that I like the whole thing, too!
Lucky Sheep |
Ohhh... another of Tina and Terri's tiny sheep... all dressed up... and waiting to go somewhere special! Lucky Sheep is adorned with your personal luck in mind. (we have casinos in Oklahoma... wonder if I should take the model along with me to one of them!?)
Just a small 4 x 4 thing... always cute, he is a companion to something like 12 other little sheep who are busy wishing you Happy Birthday and things like that! Lucky's other companions are all on our SB pages! All are complete kits of linen, flosses and really cute hand-made clay embellishments... made for each one of them!
Winter Snows and Spring Blooms
Two more 3 x 3 window-pane designs that are stitched on 28ct Newport Linen in shades of Crescent, Weeks, and Gentle Art overdyed flosses. Both are the same size as quite a few of SB's windowpane designs... and these two have new hand-made button embellishments as well.
Always a face... did you notice that? We have a Santa, Snowman, Frankenstein... and now a Snowgirl (but a sheep -- and he's not a face!!! -- my observation is wrong -- so just ignore me!) Get the charts... and stitch away! Spring is on Antique White with soft blue stripes, and Winter is on Antique Tan with cream stripes. Both are offered as single charts with buttons available separately.
from Shepherd's BushHere's a quick ornament design by Shepherd's Bush that matches quite a few of their other designs these past few months. Stitched on 28ct Newport Linen (it already has those white background stripes woven right into the fabric)... this little thing finishes only 3 x 3.
You can tell that the stitching is fast, and if you don't have the required overdyed Crescent Colours already in your stash, something else close in color might do nicely. It's embellished with a special clay Santa face button, made only for this design. Finish into a 8 x 8-ish pillow, like the pic, or smaller, into an ornament! Offered as the single chart with button separately.
Here We Go A Haunting Kit!
Here We Go A Haunting is a bustling graveyard scene, complete with costumed shepherd and his adorned sheep! Bones everywhere, a few perky pumpkins and Jacks, the kitty on the fence, caretakers house (wish I was that skinny!) and a crooked tombstone clay button (included), the whole thing stitches a petite 5 x 6-ish on the included 32ct Country Mocha Belfast Linen. Shades of DMC and Weeks overdyeds -- also included -- are mosses, oranges, purples -- all the fun Halloween colors!
Our Market order has run out... all future kits will still be the same price -- and come in the regular plastic bag!
PS... the little Scaredy Sheep Scissor Fob is a tiny companion piece to this sampler!
Holly and Ivy
The classic English Carol of the Holly and the Ivy... this piece features a tiny lamb tucked under a sky of lovely Quaker and floral motifs, and perched above his poem. Offered as a complete kit, this is stitched on 30ct hand-dyed Parchment linen, in shades of moss green, raspberry and butterscotch hand-dyed silks.
Embellishments include two vintage charms and three dyed buttons, all tucked into a petite 5 x 7-1/2 inch design! Just lovely, it is so subtly elegant!

It's here! Tina and Terry of Shepherd's Bush have announced their 2006 set of 'Be-Attitude' designs that we at The Silver Needle, are going to offer on our auto-ship program. Planned at the moment are 12 'advice' designs -- each is offered as the chart, stitched on 10ct fabric, (the first is on 10ct Navy Heatherfield) and features a package of Just Another Button Company clay buttons.
SB is also offering the fabric-pack of calicos used to construct their pillows as shown on the chart pic.They've told us there aren't too many fabric-packs available, and will NOT be available for very long after each release. Very cute, very low-key on the stitching end of things, so they're finishable... the first 'Be Warm' is really cute, and will ship as soon as we have all the component parts in the shop!
