Summer Schoolhouse Abecedarian Part Four
WITH BONUSES!
Brenda Gervais has JUST sent info on the 4th and final part of her Schoolhouse series... BUT WE HAVE TWO SURPRISES we didn't know we were going to get!!!
  • Part Four's design finishes the alphabet with WXY and Z.
  • There is a Stitch dot to coordinate with part four's design -- it's already here, and CUTE!
  • BONUS #1: Miss Polly's Hornbook chart is included in part four! It is finished onto a 3 x 4 wooden hornbook (similar to 16th and 17th century learning tools -- used to teach the ABC's and writing skills.) The chart includes detailed instructions for painting and finishing the hornbook -- you have enough of your 9 x 54 cut of Lugana to stitch this. (Brenda planned that for you!) Hornbook kits ARE available... they WILL be included in our auto-shipments. Kits include the wooden piece and trim
  • .
  • Miniature Strawberry Emorys: Part four's chart also includes the chart for this delightful 1-1/2 inch berry! (you have enough Lugana for this as well!) Brenda topped it with a bit of Weeks hand-dyed wool (available separately) and made a few more out of simple red cotton fabric. Just as cute as can be, they'll look awesome nestled in between your alphabet cushions! Topping wool will NOT be sent with auto-ships, so order some if you need it!
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE this set of designs... can't wait for part four to ship -- it'll be at The Silver Needle Mid-October!

Finishing a very petite 2-1/2 inches square, Sandie added a little Lady Dot Ball trim and some coordinating fabric to them to make the cushions a little larger. The card comes with a smattering of her frosted yellow flower beads for the pumpkin vine blossoms, you add the rest.
  • American Eagle is another cushion design measuring only 48 stitches square -- so 3 x 3 on 32ct. Stitched with regular DMC floss she's included the star button, you'll need to add the few beads, whatever fabric you want and those DMC's from your stash. Card chart includes the button.
  • I'd Rather Bee Stitching Biscornu -- So cute, this is another of Sandie's biscornu designs -- a double-sided 3-inch cushion. Algerian Eyelets in the center area, Satin stitches on the spools, one of her yellow flower beads anchors the center. Stitch on 32ct Cream with DMC flosses, you'll need a few beads. This design matches Sweetheart Tree's Needle Case, so now you can start to collect a whole set of matching smalls! Presented as the chart with embellishments.

Happy Halloween!
  • Fall Shaker Box -- Small chart format, again, coded for Gentle Art's Simply Wool, this fits a 6-inch chocolate Lone Elm Lane box... but it could be stitched smaller for a cushion finishing as well. Since the wools and cottons are the 'same colors' you could go with cottons if you wanted. Fits Lone Elm Lane 6-inch Chocolate box on 32ct -- anything neutral.

Finish into a pin cushion and fob set or... it fits Lone Elm Lane's 4-inch pin cushion base on 32ct, and can be stitched on anything neutral.

Stormy Night and Thundercloud

from Classic Colorworks and Little House Needleworks
Drab, bleak colors to add to a thread line... but super-gorgeous to use in soft samplers and pin cushions... Classic has added two new colors to their line.

FOR A FEW WEEKS, we have a free chart to include when you purchase these new shades. *Rain Showers* by Little House Needleworks, is a 4 x 4-ish design that calls for just these two colors!


Rooster Ride from Barbara-Ana Designs - click to see more Rooster Ride
from Barbara Ana
Here's a brightly colored pin cushion design -- a funky little bird that will finish approx 3 x 3. It calls for only DMC of 3371, 919, 783, 829, 422, 501, 822, 503 and 780.

In looking at it, the 501 and 503 are supposed to look bright aqua... I don't think they do, so you may want to change your thread a little to get to match this charming picture! I like the contrast of the teal/aqua against the rust and gold. Anyway, just a fun little chart!

The Spooky Season is just around the corner... and our scary graveyard is the place you DO NOT want to be!!! Just stitch it instead for a cute decoration. I covered the background in black Very Velvet thread, but made the moon, ghost, tree and EEK with Fyre werks soft metallic ribbon. Add the gravestone button if it doesn't creep you out, and the spider too... and you're finished. The ghost eyes are wierd little oval glass beads... angle those anyway you want to make his facial expressions!

Finished size is 3 x 6, I stitched this on 18ct linen over 2... so it's really about 9ct! complete kit contains our chart, fabric, threads and embellishments. Mona's Finishing Kit is offered separately, and includes the mounting boards, backing fabrics and puffy linings, her twisted cord trim and the Mona-tied wire ribbon bow to make the cute wedge stand-up!


Parchment Tapestry from Rosewood Manor - click for more Parchment Tapestry
from Rosewood Manor
Rosewood Manor has several new releases -- this is one of my favorites! All the pretty motifs all organized so beautifully inside their sections, it is full of antique-y, soft color. Stitched on Weeks 32ct Parchment Linen with 18 different shades of Weeks hand-dyed cottons, it finishes approx 19 x 13 and is just stunning. Each section has a pretty stylized floral -- notice that all those on the edges can be flipped to create more whole motifs.

Do the pretty alphabet all by itself and add the 'leaf' border around it... or leave it off completely! Any of the florals would be stunning over one on something little for a fob or needle case cover (they measure about 45 x 45 stitches each.) Very traditional, balanced and striking!
