LIZZIE KATE SPOOKED MYSTERY SAMPLER & MORE

 This is from Blackbird Designs Sweet Land of Liberty.  They showed it as a pincushion on a base but I stitched it on 35ct Peeps Lost Sheep from Dames of the Needle and I'm going to finish it as a pillow.



 This is the finish for part 1 of Lizzie Kate's Spooked Mystery Sampler.  All done except for buttons and beads.  Gotta wait till mid July for part 2.

NEW ARRIVALS




This summer issue has some really nice cross stitch pieces in it.  I haven't been dissatisfied with any of her issues.  The punchneedle is fabulous and makes me want to start another hobby.  I just love the 3 dimensional punched slice of watermelon.


Plum Street Samplers will be shipping 2 new charts next week.  Scary One is the first in A Bowl series for Halloween and Autumn.  This series will be mostly Halloweenie.  Scary One is a kit with floss and trim.  Suggested fabric is 36ct Olde Towne Blend from R&R.  If you stitch over 2 with 2 threads, you may encounter a thread shortage in the kit.  The stitch count is 124x71.  Reserve your copy today.  Kits are limited in number.




Babushka's Blossoms is a chart with a stitch count of 139x130.  Stitched on suggested 36ct Vintage Examplar from Lakeside Linens, it is stitched with Classic Colorworks and Gentle Art threads.
Some of the Gentle Art colors may be backordered but we can provide you with substitutes in the overdyed lines.

We continue to get new releases weekly, so come check us out.  We don't always put all of the charts up on the blog or facebook.
