Heart to Heart

Happy Friday, all! We have lots of new charts, fabrics, canvases, yarns and stitched models in the shop!

First up, Christmas at Hollyberry Farm by Stacy Nash Primitives. We all want to stitch this, and Ann did! (And it only took her 2 and a half weeks!). It's stitched on 32 count fabric (I think) using the called-for Gentle Arts Threads. Gorgeous.

Bent Creek's "Valentine Row."

Little House's "Patriot Inn," beautifully stitched by Patricia.

Just Nan's "Amethyst Snowflake," stitched wonderfully by Diane, who also stitched

Lizzie Kate's "What we Are Inspiration Stitch Boxer"

Oh, dear. I can't remember whether Mary or Theresa stitched these adorable pillows.

The top pillow is by Threadwork Primitives. She lightened the first one she stitched and was working on a second in a darker fabric.

Here's a nice suggestion for Valetine's day or anytime: Walker mesh bags to hold those many, many projects you want to do.

Lovely scissors with hearts!

A tiny little project from Country Cottage Needleworks: "Let Love Bloom."

And a sparkly heart-shaped Needle Buddy:

"Violet's Blue" by Blackbird Designs.

Two sweet charts by Silver Creek Designs: "Forever Love" and "Hope of My Heart."

And Christmas Robins fob by Barbara Ana designs. What a great Christmas fob (or ornament) for a friend. Get started now!

"Stitching Buddy" by Filigram.

"Valentine Fraktur" by Ink Circles.

One last shop model to show you from Plum Street Samplers: "Eliza Scattergood."

Woodlawn! The 50th Anniversary Needlework Exhibition at Woodlawn Plantation is almost upon us. It runs March 1 through March 31, closed every Tuesday. We're practically across the street, so visit and browse after you've feasted your eyes on the exhibit.

To order or for questions, call us at 703-360-4600. We are open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Normally we are open the first Sunday of the month from 12:30 to 4:30, but during the month of March (the Woodlawn Show), we will be open every Sunday from 12:30 to 4:30. Stitch nights are the first and third Wednesdays of the month, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.


  1. Is there any other way to contact the shop than a phone number. I'd like to get some of the mesh bags but I live in the UK and are not sure how to go about it! Thanks.

  2. Very nice posting. I grew up in Woodbridge and miss all the historical sites; I used to volunteer and work at Gunston Hall when I was in high school. Wish I could make the exhibit at Woodlawn.

  3. All the finishes are beautiful and Ann sure did have turbo needles!!! Great job everyone! Faye

  4. I love all the models, great job to everyone! Thanks for posting times for the exhibit, I was wondering when it was. Thanks for being open on Sundays for March maybe I can get up that way for a little stash.

  5. I'm so excited to be coming up there in March on a business trip!!!!!! A day to visit your store and this year I will get to walk over to Woodlawn for the first time ever!!!
    See you then.
