These are beautiful designs that are "Itty Bitty" on size... and "Super Duper" on personality! Ruth Sparrow, the designer has a wonderful color sense, and has designed some of the most charming things! Really creative kits with "Ort Jars," hand-dyed felt embellishments, cool little tin frames... just lots of fun things! If you aren't a 'one over one' stitcher... just stitch these over two... they still look great! Charts, Kits and itty-bitty cards in the Twisted Threads line... See more of Ruth's design style in "The Trilogy" designs... as she is one of the "3-T" designers!
Black Sheep Redeux Book 2
Twisted Threads has published a second collection of Ewe & Eye & Friends long-out-of-print Black Sheep Night projects!!! A collaboration between the gals at Tomorrow's Heirlooms Needlework and TT... all the old patterns have been updated with current fabrics, threads and finishing. What you get are 8 sought-after designs all freshened and new! Same Ewe & Eye & Friends charm... just stitchable again, because we have current thread and fabric options!
The book is lovely, one design per page... all clearly charted. The embellishment pack for the entire set (not even expensive!) has not arrived yet, but is promised any day. We'll ship it separately from the book, until we have them in stock. I love that witch... but the beehive is pretty cute too!!! Nice companion to Book #1!
Black Sheep Redeux!
This book is KILLER! 8 Out-of-Print Black Sheep designs originally by Ewe and Eye's Barbara and Kam... Twisted Threads (who bought their company several years ago) and HER local shop - Tomorrow's Heirlooms have RE-DONE them in current and fun linen colors and fresh threads! (and we have them all available)
All cute designs, I especially love the Trick or Treat Pumpkin on the Concord Linen. All worked on Week's Dye Works linens with Crescent's, Week's and Gentle Art's hand-dyeds, all 8 charts are in this leaflet. There is an embellishment packet offered separately that includes 4 gorgeous carved Mother-of-Pearl leaf beads, 3 Hematite stars, some stunning flower and insect charms -- nothing cheap or flimsy about these, they are offered as the set for the entire book.
The ladies have done a really nice job with this whole collection -- since it's numbered #1 one the cover -- we'd BETTER get more of these! We want them!
Mini Gingham Cards
Our final two miniature monthly gingham patterns have arrived that finish out this year's auto-ship of this darling Twisted Threads series. I am sorry to see the set end... but maybe she'll do something just as cute next! Offered in a small card format, each mini-gingham design is stitched on 28ct Natural/Cream Riviera Linen, over one fabric thread. They finish a minute 1-1/2 inches square... and have such personality! August deals with travel... stitch it for a flight attendant!... and September features a school theme... so stitch it for a special teacher! (Forget stitching it for your favorite student... they can't wait for school to end this time of year!!!)
We have all the cards available for individual purchase... or a 12-card set. If you work them over one thread, you can frame them in this cool little tin star frame that spans 5 inches from tip to tip. (Re-use it every month... or get a set of them!) Anyway, offered as small cards, each uses overdyed flosses, and features a tiny square sterling charm. (I think the charm is a bit pricey, and doesn't really need to be included each time... but it does offer a sparkle!) These are just the cutest!!!
Something classy to stitch for your Dad... there's enough time to finish this before Father's Day! Worked on 28ct Riviera cream and natural Gingham linen, this neat piece measures just about 1 x 9!!! Stitched in only Black Crow and Sarsaparilla overdyeds, you could add a verse in place of the alphabet letters... or stitch the ties in wild colors... if you want! You could even stitch it over two threads. Just a fun design, this is available as a leaflet. Click the image at right to see Ruth's other new designs.
Here is another design in this miniature set of gingham designs. Stitched over one thread on 28ct Riviera Gingham Linen... this is full of Thanksgiving flavor -- and even includes the turkey!!! Stitched in yummy overdyeds (the names are all foods!), it finishes a mere 2 x 4 inches! Small but showy... this is available as a leaflet.
Stitched on the taupe and cream Rivera Gingham linen by Graziano, this delightful little, fat pumpkin is stitched over one thread, and finishes only 2 x 4"! The grid on the chart is divided into blocks of 12 stitches, so when you work this... the lines on the chart actually follow the patterned check of the linen -- much easier to follow! Stitched in yummy fall colors of overdyeds, this is available as a leaflet, and we've figured the linen piece, as well!
Itty Bitty Baby Blessings
One of many wonderful, intricate designs from Twisted Threads:
What a wonderful gift for a new mother! (We have magnifier lamps for sale, to go with this design....!) Only one of a wonderful selection of designs by Ruth Sparrow of Twisted Threads.
Ruth's forte' is "over one" stitching -- an intricate, detailed cross stitch method. Most of the photographs of her work don't begin to do them justice. The one at right comes with color choices for either a baby boy or girl, and is shown stitched on 32 ct natural linen.
