There's a new designer in the shop....Grandma Kringle's Folk Art and Needlework Designs. I first saw her owl and then I did some googling and found her blog and other designs and knew I'd like to carry them in the shop. I'm not a great fan of owl's, but I thought this one was really cute....guess the patriotic accessories really caught my eye and I know I'm going to have to stitch him.
Well, here they are.....4 ornaments from Grandma Kringle:
All is Calm
Stop in and check them out! Quick and easy stitch...Easy finishing...Great Christmas gift!
The 2015 edition of the Fiber & Fabric Mania Travel Guide is due to ship November 25....so reserve your copy Now!. It is the only travel guide that lists all U.S. fiber and fabric shops. That includes quilt, yarn, needlepoint, CROSS STITCH, embroidery, spinning and weaving shops.
This edition includes over 5,000 shops complete with state maps and detailed listings by city.
New from Little House Needleworks in November is Lantern Lane. Stitched on 30ct Northern Cross linen, natural, the stitch count is 199x125.
Also new from LHN, is a series of 12 sampler styled ornaments, using Classic Colorworks fibers. The stitched size is approximately 3,5 inches on 32ct R&R Winter Brew. (The first 4 ornies all use the Winter Brew fabric.) Fibers used are: Sassy Brass, Ginger Snap, Eggshell, Cherry Cobbler, Roasted Chestnut, Weeping Willow and Caterpillar. These colors will be used throughout the entire series.
The first ornament will be released in December, so sign up now to get your sampler styled ornaments. Call or email me to have your name added to the list so you get all 12. I usually don't get involved in a series but I'm going to do this one. Not yet sure if they'll become ornaments or just a small pillow. Will have to wait and see.
Just arrived from Plum Street Samplers are Autumn Fraktur, above, and The Autumn Tart, below. I think I might mount the Autumn Tart on a circular form and trim out with twisted cord for an ornie. I love Pennsylvania German fraturs and know I've got to do this one. But before I start it, I need to do Scattered Seed Samplers, show below,Hannah's Thankful Heart. If I stick with it, I should have it done for T-day. Also in from Plum Street are The Birthday Tart and A Primitive Moodkeep. Stop in and check them out.
For you snowman lovers, here's 2 from Val's Stuff, in one chart....All I Want for Christmas.
Yes, I know, we haven't even seen Halloween yet, but have you noticed, Christmas is already in all of the stores? And the Christmas charts are appearing.....
Little House Needleworks gives us a cute cardinal on Seasons Greetings.
Imaginating offers up Let's Deck the Halls, above. and Let's Be Jolly, a very round snowman.
Third in the 2014 ornament series from Country Cottage Needlework is Snow Love. I really like the shape on this one.
Jingle comes from Cross Eyed Cricket. I think it makes a really nice pillow, but I'm apt to leave off the ruffle and just use the cording.
By the Bay brings us a variety in Angels of the Holy Night. You could use her suggested color scheme or easily change it....you can become your own designer. Start now and you could finish some of these for this holiday!
