Under the Mistletoad and Have a Merry Christmouse!
Val's Stuff has the cutest collection of Christmas (and Halloween) paper ornaments... here are two from her Christmas collection that came in a few weeks ago that we missed putting on the website!
Presented as the charts with cuts of perforated paper, black sparkly felt, and clay googly eyes, they finish approx 2 x 3, and are super bright and cute!
Jack & Jinx from Val's Stuff and JABCO
This is a small ornament design that is only PARTIALLY stitched! Just Another Button Company is printing the design on 14ct white perforated paper. You leave most of it alone, but stitch the orange pumpkin and garnish with the yellow buttons on the corners, the Jack's eyes, and the bat. You supply the black, white and orange floss from your stash, buttona are included.
Finishing only 3 x 3-1/2 in size, this would make a really GOOD beginner design for someone to learn Cross Stitch. The paper is strong, the design in technically printed on, so really no counting... it's small and colorful and seasonally CUTE!
Double Whammy - A Pair of Halloween Ornaments
Val's Stuff has quite a cute collection of Halloween ornaments all stitched on 14ct perforated paper. Small-ish, like 3 x 4, they all have great color to them and cute sayings. We have all our shop models in shadow box glass cases, but if that isn't possible in your house, make them into magnets, or put them back to back and hang them on a little tree branch for decoration.
She presents them as the chart with backing felt and a few button embellishments -- generally to the eyes. She has Christmas and Easter offerings as well... the black and white checkerboard borders seem to be a theme throughout.
Skeleton in Your Closet
Hey, this WOULD be fun to hang inside your closet!!! Stitched on Picture This Plus's hand-dyed Haunted 28ct linen (a really pretty mangy teal and gray medley) in DMC's or hand-dyeds, he finishes 2-3/4 x 8.
You could add beads for the eyes, a little metallic for the red eyes... even make the kitty furry! Presented as a single chart.
More Ornaments from Val's Stuff
The latest pair of paper ornaments has arrived to go with Val's other cute designs. Presented as charts with the cut of 14ct brown perforated paper, black mounting felt and one or two eyes by JABCO... Jingle My Bells includes the bell as well.
ALL of these are fun, and the paper makes them super easy to stitch. You will need to supply the flosses from your stash.
Merry Christmas to Ewe & Baa Humbug!
Let us all take a minute in our extreme record-breaking heat weather right now to acknowledge that Winter and Christmas will indeed come this year. When it does... we'll be saying that it was here before we knew it! So... HERE is your warning! Christmas ornaments in July!
Val's Stuff continues her super-cute look with more stitched sheep on perforated paper. Bright-wintery colors of garnet, olive and golds, the packages come with the paper cut, the black felt backing and those hand-made clay eyes by JABCO. Lightweight pieces to hang on your tree... get 'em NOW while you have time to stitch them!!!
Whooo Gives a Hoot?
Val's Stuff has sent this darling design -- just a curious owl asking an age-old question! Two different versions on the theme, the one stitched on the deep purple fabric has the golden moon behind the owl, the other version is slightly smaller, worked on 14ct perforated paper and features clay button eye embellishments.
So along with both charts, you get the felt backing, perf paper and eyes for the ornament version, which matches all of Val's other Spooks of the Month and most of her other recent releases.
Here's a trio of darling rabbits -- Easter and not -- they just make you smile! By Val's Stuff, they are stitched on 14ct perforated paper (you'll remember her Spooks of the month last year? same deal.) Finish them flat, with felt backing, and they look great hanging on a spray-painted white spring tree branch, standing up in an Easter basket, or attach a magnet and stick them on your file cabinet at work!
There's a Hare in My Candy needs to prop in a bowl of candy -- he finishes approx 3 x 4 and includes the felt, paper, eyes and bean buttons.
How Does finishes 3 x 4 as well, includes the wool for backing, as well as the purple flower, and the clay eye buttons. Cute as a plant poke!
Jelly Bean Buzz DEFINITELY needs to be perched in a bowl of Jelly Beans!!!!! He's 2 x 4, and includes the paper, felt, sparkly purple ribbon and green crazy eyes. You'll need bits of flosses from your stash for all of these.
***Lots of other new things by Val's Stuff as well... scroll down to see the rest!!!
Mouse in the House
Just a small 45 x 45 stitch count design -- stitch it with the clay eye embellishments -- or without -- it charted that way as well.
A pair of small designs featuring sheep and puns...
Ram-a-lam-a-ding-dong has a bell (4638.t) embellishment,
and Just a Little Sheepish has a (2221.t) flower!
Presented as the chart, buttons are separate.
*Miss Lizzy is busy tonight!* Real colorful and fun for Halloween, she finishes approx 7 x 8-1/2 on Week's Dye Work's hand-dyed 28ct Tin Roof Gingham linen. Charted for Weeks and DMC flosses, there are no buttons called for, but I bet you could find something if you wanted!
The moon and some of her dress would be fun in metallics... you could add beads, do long stitches in the broom bristles, and make the cat and owl furry...! Offered as a leaflet.
Peppermint Twist and Cookies for Santa
Peppermint Twist -- WOW, is this one cute!!! Stitched with 5 shades of pink -- hand-dyeds and DMCs -- this is presented as the chart with cut of 14ct perforated paper and this time both a red and white cut of backing felt, the peppermints, polka dot ribbon and perle cotton wiskers! Even with the peppermints, I love this for Valentine's Day too!!!!! Finished size of 3 x 3.
Cookies for Santa -- A small chart just like the Spooks and Peppermint Twist, this is a black kitty saving cookies for Santa. Presented as just the chart only, you can use perforated paper and the felt finishing treatment if you like, but fabric and a stuffed ornament would work as well. We have clay chocolate chip cookie buttons that would be super cute on there!
I'm On Pins & Needles and The "Eyes" Have It!
Val's Stuff has two new releases that compliment her Monsters-of-the-Month series... five cute new designs that are too much fun to pass by! Stitch them on perforated paper and hang them on a crooked tree branch for decoration.
Presenting Spooks of the Month by Val's Stuff!
We have a new on-going set of fun designs by Val Danish -- they are Halloween-inspired monsters and what-nots -- one being released each month for the rest of the year! We have January, February, March and April NOW... so you have lots to work up already! Offered as sort-of-kits... you get the chart, the JABCO clay button embellishments, a cut of 14ct perforated paper, and a cut of black sparkly felt to back them.
Have you discovered yet, that each has special eyes, along with another button to dress them up? They call for either Weeks or DMC floss, and since they are done on brown 14ct perforated paper, they are super-easy and fun to do.
Cute as can be, Jan's Said the Spider to the Fly is 51 x 28 in stitch count, Feb's Whoo Dat? is 53 x 45, March's Boo Who? is 36 x 62, and April's Frankly My Dear is 64 x 35. We'll have an auto-ship for these... Val showed them all hanging from a twig tree at Market, they'd be cute mounted to the front of stand-up cubes, or even just finished as flat paper/felt magnets! You decide.
