Well, Summer is finally at an end and we’re looking forward to a fun Halloween, time spent with family on Thanksgiving and on to the frenzy of Christmas shopping. Time sure flies when you’re having fun!
We have been busy packaging 7 new designs for your Autumn stitching fun. On this page you can see a quick little slide showing each of our new releases!
||Beginning with “Plumberry Sampler” I think you’ll agree it’s one of our prettiest-to-date Available as an all-inclusive kit it is worked in elegant, dusty shades of purple and muted olive green and while it may be small in size it is big in impact! It incorporates lots of fun "fancy-stitches" (all of which are thoroughly explained via diagrams and easily understood written instructions). While our model is framed with a few easy alterations this design can also be transformed into a beautiful pillow.|
Our second kit is called "Patriotic Heart Trio Sampler" While we were on vacation in San Diego this Summer I watched many of our Naval vessels as they came into port or left for active duty & it gave me a real understanding of our country’s strength and a feeling of patriotism....So, I picked up my needle and thread and the result is this patriotic sampler in softened shades of Red, White and Blue. Perfectly matched buttons and beads are added for the final touch.
Another Biscornu has been added to our collection and it’s called “Blackwork Biscornu.” I’ve gone a bit crazy for Black lately and the idea for this dainty Blackwork Biscornu is one I’ve had up my sleeve for a while....it’s so pretty and dainty. Worked entirely with one strand of Black floss both sides sport pretty floral designs, delicate leaves and twisty vines accented with Jet-Black Paillettes, Petite Black beads, and Matte-Black flower beads held in place with pretty pearls. Even the joining edges are finished with beautiful Antique Beads. Exceptional!
There are four new Teenie Tweenies this time. The first is “Blackwork Fob” - the perfect companion to “Blackwork Biscornu!” This fob is oh, so delicate! - but quicker than a minute to stitch! Worked in either Backstitch or Double Running stitch both sides are embellished with sparkly Jet-Black Paillettes and a tiny Matte-Black flower bead. Add self-made twisted cording with an easy-to-make beaded tassel and you’ll be just “loopy” with delight at the finished project.|
"Itty Bitty Kitty - Thanksgiving" is the ninth in our mini-series featuring our adorable "Itty Bitty Kitty." Each design in this series features our fancy feline in different settings & this time she has come home for Thanksgiving and plans to enjoy the feast with her family. Sitting at the foot of a sweet Pilgrim girl she is begging for a little piece of that succulent turkey on the dinner table. All "Itty Bitty Kitty" patterns fit into standard 4 x 4" frames or can be made into hanging ornaments for the seasons. As this popular series continues I wonder where Itty Bitty Kitty will go next - don't you?|
"Tiny Periwinkle Pincushion” is worked in cheery, fresh Periwinkle and is both pretty and practical as it will give you the perfect spot to park those extra marking pins. The top is decorated with Rhodes Hearts while the bottom sports delicate twisting vines and in the center of each side you’ll find a perfectly matched Periwinkle Flower bead held in place by a pretty pearl. Very dainty! This pincushion incorporates several fun "fancy-stitches" all of which are thoroughly explained via diagrams and easily understood written finishing instructions are also included to help you with completing this pattern.
Finally “Celestial Circles” is a dainty design worked entirely in Backstitch or Double Running stitch and then made into an elegant box topper to hold any special treasure. It is quick to stitch and worked entirely with just one strand of floss. We used a soft Teal Blue color and added sparkly Crystal Paillettes for a beautiful bit of “bling.” but any you can work this in any color on any color of fabric! It is a very versatile design that will make a perfect gift for a friend and it can easily be finished as a mini pillow, ornament or pincushion.
