Caroline Broomhead 1838 and more

 Caroline Broomhead 1838/Little Friends gives you 2 charts in one. The large sampler is stitched on a 36ct fabric as is the 'little' pinkeep.  Classic Colorworks silk floss was used with  a DMC conversion  provided.

Hurt Not the Earth is a reprint of a kit from a club of a Virginia cross stitch shop.  A Merry Hart was also stitched on a 36ct fabric with Classic  Colorworks cotton floss with a DMC conversion.  Don't forget, if you use the DMC conversion colorway, your finished project will not look like the picture on the chart.

CHALKBOARD ORNAMENTS

Chalkboard Ornaments  part 1 and 2 are finally here.

Apparently a very popular chart, part 1 was always out of stock when ordered from my distributor, so I went right to the horse's mouth and ordered them from the designer.  So, when part 3 chart comes out, I'll be receiving it on an automatic.


Each chart includes the designs for each of the three ornaments and pre-cut holly leaves and buttons to embellishment each design.  Fabric used is a 32 count with DMC and Gentle Art threads.

Get your copy today and start stitching these cute ornaments....great teacher's gift.

HANDS ON DESIGNS & STONEY CREEK MAGAZINE


Hands on Design is continuing it's To The Beach series with Anchor Down and Grab Life.  A small (fits in 5x7 frame) and uncomplicated project for picking up to do a few stitches among your summer activities.



Stoney Creek magazine's Summer issue has been
renamed Annual Holiday Issue.  It is chocked full
of Christmas, Halloween, Autumn and Thanksgiving projects.

I'm thinking about doing the piece on the front cover
but not as a stocking.  I love Santa pieces and the dogs
remind me of the Subaru commercial on TV and red
pickups have been 'in' the last couple of years.  So, I'm
envisioning the piece as a pillow from Santa and flag down to and including the snow on which the truck is running.
Gotta see if I can fit it into my schedule.
