Celebrate with Charm Flip-its. We just received the first 2 parts of this 7-part holiday series. They're quick, cute and each one comes with an antique gold charm. So many finishing possibilities on these! Easter Celebrate with Charm is coming in February. Each holiday will be represented with a single word which focuses on the theme of the month...Love for February and Luck for March.

Each Design will be approx. 2.75" x 3.75" If you plan to stitch them altogether the finished design will be 21.5" x 3.75" if stitched on 32 ct. linen. The model is stitched on 32 ct. Light Mocha linen.
This is the perfect anniversary gift for your spouse as it says: "If you live to be 100, I want to Live to be 100 minus 1 day so I never have to live a day without you." Of course that would mean you would have to be the same age, but you get the sentiment. Beautiful. This chart pack also gives you a 2nd chart which states, "Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart."

Mend is the 5th in the series of Block Party pincushions, but certainly has to be a favorite of stitchers with all the motifs related to our craft: buttons, tomato pincushion, sewing machine, iron and a few more plus my favorite, the tap measure which surrounds the bottom of it. So cute!!! As with all the Block Party a special set of JABCO pins is shown which spells out MEND and a 5th pin of a tomato pincushion.

The Hometown Holiday Series has a new resident, #13 - The Bookstore. The recommended linen initially was 30 ct. Northern Cross Natural, but don't be afraid to experiment here. I stitched mine on 18 ct. over 2 as I making all of them into a stand up village to be displayed on my entertainment center shelves. While there are other ways of finishing, if you do want to do stand ups, go to www.littlehouseneedleworks.com for the tutorial on how to do that. You can pick the linen of your choice, perhaps Lambswool, or Raw Linen, any neutral linen would be good and you can pick the count you are most comfortable with. The stitch count on the Bookstore is 79 x 49 so on 28 ct. that would make the finished design approx. 5 1/2" x 3 1/2". If you do it over two on 18 ct. it makes the finished building a nice 8 3/4" x 5 1/2"...imagine 13 of those pieces under the tree! Stitched using Classic Colorworks: Hickory Sticks, Roasted Chestnut and Steamed Broccoli, and DMC:Ecru, 640, 3023, 3777 and 3828. I used the #5 Perle Cotton from Weeks Dye Works and DMC when stitching mine over 2 on 18 ct.

I adore the latest designs from Blackberry Lane Designs and Home for Winter combines two of my favorite themes, Patriotic and winter snow scenes. The chickadees are stitched over one thread while the patriotic birdhouse is stitched over 2 on 32 ct. Belfast Storm linen from Picture This Plus. The finished design size is approx. 3 1/4" x 4 3/8" so it could be used as an ornament or a door hanger or just a small framed piece. Home for the Winter finishes approx. 3 x 4-1/2 -- not too large for an ornament. The model was stitched using DMC (310, 318, 413, 415, 436, 437, 738, 739, 3781, 3782, 3790 for the over one chickadees and Weeks Dye Works:Icicle, Navy, Turkish Red-Gentle Arts:Sable, Honey Dew- and Classic Colorworks:Sassy Brass, Lettuce Leaf for the over 2 stitching and french knots. White pom pom trim was used to finish the ornament.
Directly from Italy, Cuore e Batticuore has the sweetest charts and one thing I love about their charts is you can do the entire design as one piece or break the charts up into parts and make smalls. The designs are charming with a lot of whimsy. Always spots for embellishments which is good to add dimention, etc. The charts are beautifully presented in color and they use DMC floss on most of their designs. Winter in Quilt is stitched on 32 ct. Light Mocha linen using DMC: B5200, 3828, 435, 434, 433, 747, 598, 597, 3768, 367, 3363, 989, 3779, 347, 498, 169.

Brenda was inspired by an antique German Santa and the wooly Putz sheep when she designed this Christmas door hanger. I'm already looking at it seeing it done over 2 on the 18 ct. linen which would make the pillow about 14" x 8", perfect for a chair or sofa....but back to the door hanger. While she added a bell to hang around the sheep's neck, I would also add beads for the snowman buttons and eyes and perhaps put a star on the top of the trees, well, let's just say this would give you plenty of opportunities for embellishment, if that is your thing to give the piece texture and detail. As shown the finished size is approx. 7 1/8" x 3 1/2" when stitched on Legacy Linen by Picture This Plus using Weeks Dye Works: Sandcastle, Pelican Gray-Gentle Arts:Apricot Blush, Woodrose, Apple Cider, Pumpkin Pie, Wood Trail, Endive-Classic Colorworks:Cili Pepper, Eggshell and Hazelnut.

Paulette says she was inspired to do this by one of her favorite Founding Fathers, John Adams. According to her, he was less than popular at times with those who worked directly with him, hehad a quiet, earth-loving side to him, and he seems to be one who was ceaselessly amazed at the nature that surrounded him on his long morning walks. The model is stitched on 36 Espresso from R & R and finishes to approx. 10.25"x 4.5". The colors used are Crescent Colors: Antique Lace, Hickory Sticks, Pea Pod, Chai, Roasted Chestnut, Lunar Eclipse, Pollywog, Deep Fennel, River Rocks, Barn Door.
