Sizzling Summer Update
Well, Summer has arrived and with it way too much hot weather in Arizona!
It might sound strange but up to 105 degrees it's fairly tolerable...but
when we hit 118 degrees that wasn't so much fun - That is like sticking your
head in a self-cleaning oven!
We have been holed up in blessed air conditioning are keeping busy packaging
9 new designs for your Summer stitching fun. On this page you can see a
quick little slide showing each of our new releases!
||We're starting a brand new series of 3-dimensional ornaments with a fun "new
shape".... we call them "Pretty Pyramids." These are just what the name
implies, pyramid shaped, and they're awfully fun to stitch. The first is
called "Tiny Bleuettes." It's covered with sweet little meadow flowers on
each "triangular" side and also on the bottom. This all-inclusive kit comes
with fabric, fibers & embellishments as well as easy to follow instructions
for "finishing." Be sure to look for more of these fun ornament kits in the
near future! |
Next is our "Tiny Periwinkle Floral Sampler." Available as an all-inclusive
kit it is worked in cheery, fresh Periwinkle colors on Platinum linen &
incorporates fun "fancy-stitches" all of which are thoroughly explained via
diagrams and easily understood written instructions. With easy alterations
this design can be transformed for lots of things (think wedding, birth or
anniversary) & stitched "as is" it will hang in your home for years to come.
Our third kit is called "English Garden Rose." Sweet is probably the word
that best defines this pattern! Worked on White Linen the vines & delicate
rosebuds in this design surround a beautiful Pink Porphyr Flower bead at the
center (each flower bead is hand poured and all are totally unique).
Sparkly Crystal-AB Paillettes mimic the pink & green tones of the design &
perfectly matched beads are added for the final touch. This all-inclusive
kit comes with fabric, fibers & embellishments.
There are five new Teenie Tweenies this time. The first two are companion
pieces - "Quaker Alphabet Square I" & "Quaker Alphabet Square II." Worked
with Weeks Dye Works "Cadet" on "Pampas" hand dyed linen from Picture This
Plus - you'll fall in love with the subtle variations in floss and fabric
colors - it gives each piece a stunning appearance! Custom dyed-to-match
mini accent buttons & Antique Seed Beads of exactly the right color make
these designs a winner! Because of their diminutive size these are quick to
stitch, & while meant to be stitched as a set, ambitious stitchers might
even like to "combine" the two horizontally or vertically to make one larger
"Itty Bitty Kitty - Tulip Time In Holland" is the eighth in our mini-series
featuring our adorable "Itty Bitty Kitty." Each design in this series
features our fancy feline in different settings & this time "Itty Bitty
Kitty" is beginning the Grande Tour of Europe in Holland where tulips grow &
windmills spin in the breeze. 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?|
Next with "Beach Rules" a sweet seagull sits on the pier while one "crabby"
crab skitters past seashells and across the sand to a hide by a tiny sand
castle. Rules of the beach are simple - Go Barefoot, Count Waves, Take a
Nap & Make Memories to last all Winter long! - AND be sure to wear your
sunscreen! Accessorized with a tiny pearl on the seashell this pattern also
comes with a second design - a sweet little Seagull fob which uses 3 little
decorative White buttons - Stitch BOTH for a wonderful Summer memory!
"Halloween Gothic Revisited" is one really fun design for Halloween. Worked
on 28 count Lambswool Linen (or Jobelan) the design uses a fun combination
of DMC floss and Kreinik's Glow-In-The-Dark fibers...and, oh, how it
brightens the night time with its glow. A dapper skeleton sports his heart
button on his vest & is accompanied by his tiny witchy companion. They
really make quite the glowing couple along with their "pet" black cat and a
friendly Jack-O-Lantern! You'll REALLY have fun stitching this one!
Finally, we have one more surprise - A new complimentary 2-sided fob design
called "Teenie Bunny Fob." This is a small adaptation pulled from "Quaker
Alphabet Square I" ... just made really tiny & fob sized. Local shops can
request this complimentary design when they place their next order so be
sure you stop to pick up your "free copy" for the front side of this cutie!
Shops can also order the custom colored "Matte Spruce" buttons so that you
can finish your fob just like the photo! And - as an additional surprise,
if you send us a self-addressed-stamped envelope we'll send you a
coordinating design for the back side of your fob! Supplies are limited so
