Olga's Tart is a new design for the tart pan and will be in the shop shortly.  If you've seen our sample, you know that we've finished so that the designs can be switched in and out of the same tart,  Bet you can guess I'll be stitching this for the Halloween season.

And, just arrived, is number 3 in the Serial Bowl collection, Lesson Three.  Gotta stitch it as I love bee themed charts and I've already done the previous two designs.

Coming from With Thy Needle and Thread

The FALL is coming and so are Brenda Gervais's new Halloween and Autumn releases.  Which one are you going to stitch?

Just love, Witches Night Out...You know I'm gonna do it.  Finishes out just under 5x5 so it could be a large ornie for that Halloween shelf of even wreath.  Stitched on 36ct Mello from PTP, it uses WDW, GAST and Crescent Color flosses.

Bobbing for Pumpkins....another good one.  Just love the witches.  This is stitched on 32ct straw, from WDW, and uses threads from all 3 overdyed floss companies.  Finishes out at about 6x9.

Grateful, Thankful & Blessed is lovely stitched on 36ct Wren, from PTP.  It is stitched with WDW, GAST and CC silks and cottons and finishes at around 8x10.

And finally, Oct. 31.  It is stitched on 36ct legacy from PTP with WDW, GAST and CC cotton and 1 silk.  Finished size is approximately 6.5x9.


New from Drawn Thread is The Pastoral, a multi piece chart for a pocket, fob and sampler.  As you can see from the first 2 pictures, you can do the individual pieces, or create a beautiful sampler.  Everything is stitched on 32ct fabric and uses a GAST thread palette or Dinky Dyes Silk.

Free & Brave offers a combo of cross stitches and fancier stitches to tempt the stitcher.   It is stitched on 32ct fabric and design size is slightly less than  5x5.

I'm not sure how new this is but I loved the subject and colors....The Cat's Meow.  Also stitched on 32ct fabric, it finishes out at 5x5.  Using DMC colors, you get to stitch 5 cats and their favorite 'toys'...mice and birds.

Here is Lesson Three from the Serial Bowl Collection of Plum Street Samplers.  It will be shipped next week.  Something for Christmas will be coming and the next 2 scheduled Serial Bowls will come out this year or maybe into next year.  It is stitched with 8 colors from Classic Colorworks on a 36ct fabric.

I've been rearranging the shop and pulling and combining charts and I found one Lesson One so grab it while you can, as Lesson One and Two are both sold out.  We still have a couple of Lesson Two
