The Silver Needle, Fine Needlework Materials, everything for cross stitch

The Sunflower Seed
Quite an appropriate name for a designer from Kansas... this is a tiny sampling of their delightful designs! Seasonal Birdhouses, I think my personal favorite is that grinning Halloween Kitty! Cute and whimsical, each is offered in chartpack format, some are stitched on hand-dyeds, some feature Just Another Button Company clay embellishments... nothing too huge, everything is darling!

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.


Hilltop Seasons from The Sunflower Seed -- click to see a larger view Hilltop Seasons
This is a fun piece by Sunflower Seed that depicts a skinny house and its yard all the year through! I'm not sure if it the curly-q smoke coming from the chimneys, the tall landscaping, or the borders, I love all the pattern and color!!!

Offered as a chart, it finishes approx 9 x 9 on 30ct and is worked in Sampler Threads.

Well, this little kitty has stolen his mouse, but I doubt he's taking him to the costume party!! Sunflower Seed had designed this charming cat -- I just love that blanket on his back, and his matching mask!

Offered as a chart, this is worked on 28ct Vintage Lime Cashel Linen in overdyed flosses, and finishes approx 6 x 6. The pumpkin is cute, and so are the swirls... but I can see this kitty all by himself, too! Great curvy lines, and fun color...


Walk Away Wise from The Sunflower Seed -- click to see more Walk Away Wise
Well, I can just hear John Wayne -- complete with cowboy garb and gun holster, the mature, mentoring voice, horses grazing for a moment, mountains in the background -- giving the young whipper-snapper life's advice... Shake the dust off your shoes, and walk away wise. (!!!) This exquisite 6-1/2 x 10 piece is stitched in DMC's first set of linen threads!!!

Offered as a chart, our fabric choice is 30ct Friendship Blue. That set of DMC linen threads is awesome in this... the light straws, blues and neutrals POP on this darker fabric. A very classy sentiment... soft, luscious threads... this is really nice. Offered as the chart with linen cut... we have the set of linen threads separately... in case you already have them!

What a silly grin sported on each of our featured guests!!! We stitched our model of this on an outrageous hot neon orange hand-dyed linen -- and believe it or not -- the bright colors all look good together! The red stars, yellow moon, orange Jack-o-Lantern and Black Cat all POP on that bright linen!!! Stitch something they'll notice from across the room... they'll think you're nuts... but this IS cute!

Offered as the chart, finishing approx 6-1/2 x 7 on 28ct hand-dyed linen (I forget our color) it's stitched in a variety of Weeks and Sampler Threads overdyeds.

Away in a Manger
Just a small, quiet Christmas scene... this is offered in a small chart format and finishes into a 4 x 4 ornament on 32ct linen. A bit large to hang on the tree -- it would be nice on a doorknob or cabinet pull.

Nothing fancy... just a good, timeless design.
