The Just Cross Stitch 2013 Christmas Ornaments issue--lots of cute things to stitch for Christmas gifts or yourself without breaking the bank or taking a year. Although I save all my issues and get them out year after year.
"Elizabeth Lamb 1837" by Samplers Not Forgotten. Love the bird and the reds/greens--although not a Christmas sampler, I've bought one, meaning to start it at Christmas because of those colors.
"Ann Leech Sampler" by C Street Samplerworks. I particularly like the funky little Adam & Eve-ish couple and the boat motif.
We have several new Gigi R sampler charts in the shop. "Sweet Adeline 1873" here.
Likewise, we have several Homespun Elegance charts that are new. Here's one that I am especially fond of.
Remember Notforgotten Farm's Autumn booklet from the last post? Here's another wonderful pin pillow from the pages of this great set of charts.
Kathy Barrick's "Black Heart." I noted that it's charted for NPI silks which glow against the black background.
Jardin Prive's "Patchwork Houses." Lovely pink and blue for those of you not ready for fall colors.
Don't forget that we carry lots of needlepoint canvases and supplies. This magazine is just wonderful--look at the fun Halloween ornaments.
These are needlepoint canvases: bet you recognize a lot of them. There's a lot of crossover between needlepoint and counted cross stitch, both with supplies, techniques and designers.
You may recognize a few Birds of a Feather designs--a great way to get your BoaF fix. Needlepoint isn't difficult--come on in and we'll kit you up and get you started.
Here's an incredible project for the advanced or ambitious needlepointer. Stitch these pieces, then bring the canvas to us and we'll send it to our expert finisher--who will turn it into the most amazing three-dimensional Noah's Ark.
One last older Cricket Collection autumn chart:
And a brand-new shop model (and darned if I can remember who the designer is--but if you want to purchase it, just give the shop a call, and we'll tell you who designed it and can ship it off to you if you want to stitch it! I'm going to buy one and stitch it as a pin pillow.
