Well, we missed St. Patrick's day by about half an hour, but it's not too late for you to stitch this "Irish Thought":
It's come to our attention that some of you don't have a real-live LNS, so we thought we would show you some of the things that you don't see lots of on the web; maybe they're oldies, or by designers who are not as well known, or variations on stitching that you might not have seen or even a design that you've seen and forgotten about. All photos are clickable for a better look, and as always, please call us at 703-360-4600 if you have questions or would like to order something. We're happy to send a chart, to kit something up for you, to recommend fibers or fabric. This is a cute Independence Day design by Ewe & Eye & Friends--the large number on it indicates that it's a shop model.
Another shop model--"Stack of Snow" by Amy Bruecken. The carrot noses are buttons.
"Lucy Locket," something new by the Needle's Notion--click to see larger--the fish are too cute.
We did a little reshuffling of some of our charts--folks don't always look on the bottom rack, so we like to move them around a bit, and look at the treasure we found: a nice historic sampler: "Mary Briggs 1829."
Here's an "Heirloom Baby Sampler" by JBW Designs, along with the pillow cover to stitch it on.
Glenna's newest must-stitch choice: we carry the Elizabeth Bradley Needlework Kits, which are designed to be worked in Victorian cross stitch (right to left, one cross at a time) in wool included in the kits. They make excellent framed pictures as well as rugs, pillows or chair covers. This one is called "The Pastoral." Think about how a couple of these pillows would look arranged on a sofa under some framed cross stitch in your home. There are various animals and bugs hidden in the design, including two little worms.
How about treating yourself to a nice new mesh zipper project bag in jelly bean brights?
