A lovely old-style sampler that combines cross stitch and 15 different stitches into a modern twist. Delightful to learn new stitches and enjoy the presentation in a booklet style, with main graph folded in the back of the booklet. There is a free chart for this sampler- the needlebook as shown in the pictures. It has one of every stitch on it, making it a great preface piece prior to doing the big sampler. Model: 179 x 221 on 32 ct Sand by Picture This Plus
The popular Once Upon a Tree pattern is now available for general release. It is a tree done in the 4 seasons of nature. Each season is done in different stitches and different colours. The tree trunk remains the same throughout. There is an embellishment pkg. available with all the threads and beads necessary to do the piece. They are skeined by season.
As with the other pieces in this series, it focuses on a motif and how many different ways the motif can be stitched. If you are new to this series, pineapples are a symbol of welcome so we welcome you to this great series. It fits into the same box used through out the series, the JD061 box from Olde Colonial Designs. Substitutes from P & G Enterprises are available for the box.
This traditional band sampler is a tribute to a lovely Canadian publication. As you can see in published works, this piece was originally designed for the magazine – ‘A Needle Pulling Thread’. I wrote the poem to reflect the name yet still remind us of the charm that old, tried and true stitches hold for us.
This design is 17 boxes of specialty stitches, each box has instructions with stitch diagrams when needed. A diagram of alternate sayings is available for the Take Time To… series. It will be uploaded soon, and link will be posted here.
Design size: 66 x 66 (4 1/4" x 4 1/4" on 32 ct over 2 or 16 ct over 1)
So pretty and fun! Needle roll, scissors fob, your imaginiation is the only limit on how to use these beach-themed motifs! The turtle is done over 1 on the 32 ct Sand and made into a pin for the pincushion, but each little portion – eg either fish, seahorse, turtle etc. may be interchangeable and may be made into only 3 sections or use all 6 or 5 as shown in the photograph. Have fun picking your pincushion! Model: 32 ct Sand from Picture This Plus. Pin cushion / needle roll: 37 x 163 stitches.
A brand new pattern in the Stitches Series to bring out the Scottish in you. This was a treat to design, although I had to try several different colours before I was thrilled to find Victorian Garden which matched the picture in my brain! Enjoy the subtle purples, and the soft mauves, fun.
This leaflet is a match to Thistle Stitches in the Stitches series. The leaflet gives great instructions on stitching and finishing the 2 needlecushions, pincushion, scissors fob and lavender bag. Fill with your favourite herbs - lavender, mint, you name it!
