Everyone kept requesting more inspirational sayings, so Linda combined 2 favorites in this chartpak, "Be Bold & Brave in Your Heart" and "Whatever's Good for your Soul do That,"  plus a bonus pin cushion design.

Sunflower Cottage Sewing Box............Mani di Donna

This is an original design from Simona Bussiglieri and just one of several we picked up in Nashville, each one more fabulous than the last.  Sunflower cottage is so summer with bees buzzing, and sunflowers in full bloom.  She stitched the design on 32 ct. beige from Weeks Dye Works and used their threads as well.  For finishing she used Weeks Dye Works Houndstooth Wool in Lancaster Red and had adorable hand painted wood buttons, a hand painted bobbin set and sunflower pin sets made to go with the piece which she shows in Lone Elm Lane's Black Queen Crown Box. This will be a treasured heirloom in your collection.

Mermaids Song Sewing Box.................Mani di Donna

Simona has designed this beautiful box that is so perfect for those of us who live by the sea, as well as for those who wish to live by the sea.  She has the cutest whale on the lid and a dear little crab...perfection.  With this design you are actually constructing your own box, but don't worry, she gives you complete directions and I've already made one of her hand done boxes and they are relatively simple to do.  With the box she has also had fabulous accessories made, hand painted wood bobbins set, which you see in the picture, as well as a lighthouse pin set.  She also has a fabric pack so that you will be able to use the same striped fabric she used to make the box.  Fun piece.  Simona stitched hers using 32 ct beige linen by Weeks Dye Works as well as Snow Cream wool and Weeks fibers.

Blue Quaker Sewing Basket............................Mani di Donna

Simona has come out with another of the small round sewing baskets which I loved stitching and found constructing it easier than I had anticipated.  Since I'm crazy for Quaker anything, this is in my bag to stitch next.  It is small enough to get done stitching in just a couple of nights and the finishing will take a couple of hours, so you can have this done in just a few days.  The painted wooden handle is included with the chart.  She used 2 Gentle Arts threads, dungarees (3 skeins) and mustard seed (2 skeins).

Nancy Alden, 1795 .................Linda Stolz

Linda stumbled across the original tablet format sampler one day at her local frame shop – and was delighted when the owner allowed her to reproduce it. That bird in the lower corner really grabbed her attention, but the entire sampler is wonderful. It's likely English, although we don't know much about Nancy Alden at this point. Mostly worked in cross stitches, there are also eyelets and a few bullion knots, with the Lord's Prayer and Apostle's Creed worked over one thread.  If the large amount of over-one stitching seems a bit much for you, Linda also charted the Lord's Prayer over two threads so it fills both tablet sections. It's still completely in character with the original and makes a nice alternative stitch.

Finished size: approx. 14.5" x 13"

Princessa and the Pea.................Jackie du Plessis of It's Fine-ally Finished

This is a class piece...Jackie will be here September 9-11, 2016,  to teach two classes and Princessa and the Pea will be one of them.  
      When you hear the words “Princess” and “Pea” you immediately think of the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale called “Princess and the Pea”.  This beloved fairy tale evokes thoughts of stacking mattresses a princess and hidden treasures.  I wanted to create a collection of functional and stylish objects that reflect our time.  This project is centered around a Pea Pod theme and explores different mediums such as paper, paint, linen, wool and silks.
        
The “Princessa and the Pea” is a collection of three stacking paper Mache boxes, painted and waxed in class.  These three boxes each with a theme is stack, one on top of the other, and represent three green peas.  A silk fabric pea pod case snugly holds the three pea boxes together.  Tendrils with button flowers made of paper, wool and ribbons cascade down from the soft, scalloped woolen needle page leaves.  
    
Each of the pea boxes stores a theme:
The top box: Rock - a tiny Jade bead sits upon stacking pillows next to a tiny tiara.
The middle box: Paper and all treasures made with paper.  
The bottom box: Scissors.  

Note that the buttons are attached in sets of three, representing the three peas with the three pea boxes.
No collection could be complete without a stitched Pea Pod needle case created with a pulled stitch mimicking three tiny peas.  

Your kit will include all the supplies needed to stitch and assemble the Princessa and Pea project alone with detailed pictures and instructions.

Optional items:
Scrimshaw thread winder and ruler available for purchase.
Wooden pea thread holder

Princessa and the Pea Class- $360 with a  deposit of $185. This includes a room for one night at the Lankford Hotel (where the classes are held),  continental breakfast the day of the class along with lunch, plus the kit.

Mexican Purse............Class...............Betsy Morgan

Mexican Purse-  This.design is a Mexican stitcher's purse.  Its full name is "Maria Katarin's Stitching Reticule".  It is named for our adopted daughter, Caitie, who is part Mexican.  The various motifs and techniques used in this purse were inspired by an 1844 sampler from Pachuca, Mexico which is in my collection.

When folded closed, the reticule measures 4 x 8 inches.  It is stitched on light mocha Belfast linen using Gloriana silk flosses and is lined in olive silk Dupioni.  Inside there are 3 small pockets for
holding your small needlework tools including two of the smalls in this design - a scissor fob and a thread winder.  The reticule also includes a 5 inch stitched ruler.

Stitches include: Aztec, eyelet, diagonal pattern darning, pulled four sided, long arm cross, diagonal satin, Mexican klosters, satin, rice, upright cross, cross over one and cross over two.

..This is a pre-stitch class. The cost for this class is $300.00. with a deposit of  $125.00

Pioneer Girl Sampling Book......Class..........Betsy Morgan

June 3-5, 2016-It's always exciting to welcome Betsy Morgan back to teach her wonderful designs.  

Pioneer Girl Sampling Book... This class was inspired by a book called "Pioneer Memorial Museum Samplers" and was written by Loree Romriell.  Betsy has turned her vision of the samplers in the book, into a book.  The outside cover of the book is loosely based on a very simple sampler in the collection which is worked on "training cloth", which was made in an effort to assist young girls in stitching in nice neat rows.  The cloth is made by removing every tenth linen ground thread and weaving a colored thread back in so that it looks like modern day school notebook paper.  Students will do this as part of the project.

Inside the book, instead of pages, there are two boxes which hold smalls - a scissor pouch and fob and two thread winders.  The spine of the book is a pin roll and one of the inside box lids has a wool felt needle page attached to its lining.  The project was stitched on Platinum Belfast linen which I distressed after all of the embroidery was completed, to give it the worn and stained appearance of most of the original samplers.  Students may follow my lead on this or choose to leave theirs in pristine condition.

All of the motifs used were inspired and adapted from the samplers in the museum collection except the bee hive.  I felt that the design needed one since the bees and the hive, symbols of industriousness, are the symbols of the state of Utah. 

 This is a pre-stitch class. The cost for the weekend, which includes lodging for 2 nights, breakfast for 2 days, lunch on Saturday and the class kit is $325.00- Deposit for class is $150.00.

So cute for the holidays, and the good news is the chart is free when you purchase the hat button.  We also have the 18 ct. linen and fibers to complete this project packed up and ready to ship out as well.  When stitched on the 18ct. the approx. finished size is  only about 3.5" x 4.5", but the pillow measures approx. 11" x 8" so it's a nice size pillow.  It would also look cute finished as a bag front with greens, etc. stuck in it.  But this would also be cute done on a smaller count, 28 or 32 and then framed.  This is a fast stitch, one night or two nights tops.  Great gift for Christmas

Pumpkin and Bargello Pin Cushions.....................Jeannette Douglas Designs

Two fabulous new pincushions designed for the Lone Elm Lane Shaker Pin Cushion Bases (come in Bittersweet, Brown, Brick Red, Black, Pewter), however, you don't have to use the bases, they would be fabulous without the base.  The Pumpkin Pin Cushion features 4 patterned pumpkins with a few beads and she's used 10 different over-dyed flosses.  Approx. finished size is 4"x4".   The Bargello Pin Cushion is done using one of my favorite run of stitches, bargello.  To fit this inside the Lone Elm base you have to do it on 35 ct. fabric (Jeannette used Cappucino), otherwise without the base you can use whatever count linen you want.  With any bargello it is really important that the first row be counted accurately because after that you are just following that first row and never have to look at the chart again. She's used just 5 colors and as always it's coded for silk, but you could choose your favorite run of over-dyed cotton or DMC as well..

Gingerbread Quilt Shop............................Victoria Sampler

A delicious Gingerbread Quilt Shop is the eighth addition to Thea's Gingerbread Village. Added to the Tree Etui, the Stitching House, Church, Candy Cane Cottage, Bakery, Haunted House and Needlework Shop, this year’s Gingerbread building is densely stitched on Gingerbread colored linen and is inspired by all manner of quilting! The shop has a small entrance foyer, with the Quilt Shop name above the door, and a metal sewing machine sewn on its tiny roof. The front shows two friends quilting in the top floor window, while a little Christmas tree sparkles merrily behind them. There are few windows, but each of the walls are covered with quilts and quilt motifs. Each side is decorated completely differently from the other side. This gives an impression when assembled of being surrounded by all different quilts.   You will be stitching with silk flosses, Perle Cottons, sparkling beads and delicious looking ‘candy’ buttons. This delicious and fragrant Gingerbread Quilt Shop is dripping with icing, and lots of decorative ‘candies’ to welcome the hungry visitor. This building was not lined, which makes finishing easier and faster. The thread/accessory packet includes all the silks, metallics, beads, gingerbread men buttons, micro buttons -- and even the little shop dog.

    Stitchin' Witches......................................Victoria Sampler

    These Stitchin' Witches are stirring up a wicked brew of crows, bats and cat's whiskers!  What could be more fun than combining stitching with these colorful and cackling Halloween Witches?  Just look at the top of the sampler where one of the witches in residence is stitching her quilt of orange and black while bats fly overhead under the new moon.  These witches live in a cottage in the woods, surrounded by pumpkins and gnarled old trees.  Setting off each of the panels is a beautiful black lace.  Specialty stitches with wonderful color combinations are found throughout.  The middle panel shows another stitchin' witch all in a muddle with crows stealing her precious black, and she's vainly trying to remember a spell to stop the thievery!  More black lace and some perfectly round tiny orange buttons and the bottom panel appears.  The moon is full and now the witches are sitting around their bubbling cauldron as they stitch.  You can stitch the smaller panels by themselves or stitch the whole fabulously witchy and stitchy sampler to hang on your walls.
