CLASSIC ORNAMENTS

CLASSIC ORNAMENTS is a new 12 part series from Country Cottage Needleworks starting mid August and continuing through July 2015.  Traditional greens and reds will be used in all the designs, hence the name 'classic'.  The first 3 designs will be Angels, Dear Santa and Snow Love.  Each design is stitched on a different 32ct fabric and there will be a Jabco button to adorn each ornament.  Classic Colorworks, WDW, GAST and DMC flosses will be used throughout the series.  Sign up now to ensure you don't miss a design.

JUST FOUND!





 
 
 

 
 
I was doing some cleaning and rearranging and opened a box and was very surprised.  I found 13 charts...and not at all unlucky.  There were  Diane Graebner Designs, PB Designs and 1 from Janlynn's.  The pics show just a few.  The charts haven't seen the light of day since I moved here.  It's always fun to see some oldies but goodies  so come check them out, after all, some designs never go out of style.

PEACE TO EWE AND......

Just arrived from Homespun Elegance are two new pouches...a new, quick and easy way to finish your design.   Peace To Ewe and Sunflower Fair are both stitched on 20ct WDW over-dyed linen, Kudzu.  You are stitching over 2 threads so the finished count is 10 stitches to the inch...an easy stitch.  The designs are not complicated so they should finish up quick and easy.  To assemble the pouch, you will blanket stitch the 2 sides and bottom to a piece of  wool or felt, add a strip of fabric for the hanger and you are done.  The buttons used across the bottom come from your button stash.  Fill them with whatever you have in your stash and hang them anywhere, even a door, as they finish out at about 4x7.  We have our free stitch night tonight from 6:30 to 8:30 and I'm going to start
Sunflower Fair.  I've got the perfect sunflower to put in it and I'll find some dried flowers to go with it.  If you don't want to use the 20ct Kudzu, how about using a 10ct fabric or even jute.



 
Also just arrived are Esther Syer 1796 from Plum Street Samplers, Summer Harvest from Blackbird Designs, #11 in this years Loose Feathers series, and Grand Old Flag from Rosewood Manor.  For those of you who are older, the verse in this chart is from the song of the same name by George M. Cohan and was in the movie, Yankee Doodle Dandy.  The last chart, Sweet Land should be in soon.

SUN, MOON AND STARS....ARE HERE!

Littlehouse Needleworks trio Sun, Moon and Stars has arrived.  Parts 1 and 2, Over the Moon and Beneath the Stars are here, with Under the Sun to be released in July.   It's a kit that contains chart and Classic Colorworks  threads (previously known as Crescent Colours).  Just add a piece of fabric of your choice (30ct Creek Bed Brown from R&R or 30ct Northern Cross natural are recommended) and start stitching this cute chart.  It's a great take-along  for those picnics and baseball games that are coming up.  It becomes a great gift for someone special or just yourself.
