Button Posies..................................................Scarlett House

This was actually designed for one of the Stitching Clubs last year and I was a member but didn't get it stitched and finished until about a week before it was released this year.  It was a fun stitch, just loved stitching the vase and I think it's the most striking part of this piece.  I did use buttons as the center of the flowers, but they do give you the stitched version on the chart so you can do it either way.  The pin cushion is approx. 5"x 4 " while the fob measures approx. 2" x 1 1/2" when stitched on 36 ct. linen.  This comes as a chart only so you can pick you favorite fabric and stitch on whatever you like.  Stitched using Gentle Arts Fiber: Black Licorice, Chalk, Country Redwood,Grasshopper, Old Hickory, and Piney Woods.

Cross Stitch Nation...........................Heartstring Samplery

Beth was inspired to design Cross Stitch Nation during the Nashville Market and while attending a "writers round" to hear local songwriters perform.  After learning her reason for being in Nashville, they included this phrase into one of their impromptu songs.  I find it to be perfect and I'm proud to be a member.  We have our own language, our own habits, goals, values just like any other nation, so stitch this and put it near your stitching place....proudly.  It can be  made into a pillow, a picture, or as Sara suggested, a drum pin cushion. The model is stitched on 32ct.  over 2 threads so the approx. design size is 12.5" x 5.25".  You can change colors to match your particular stitching friends, even include their names under each person.  Make it person to you and your stitching group.  Uses the following fibers:

Weeks Dye Works:Charlotte's Pink, Fathom, Red Rocks

Gentle Arts:  Endive, Lambswool, Mountain Mist, Mustard Seed, Picnic Basket

Classic Colorworks: Eggshell, Hazelnut, Muddle Puddle

ABC Pyn Roll and Bargello Sheep Pinkeep........Jeannette Douglas Designs

Sometimes a little set of smalls comes out of a bigger sampler mostly because you enjoy them so much you want to rework them a bit and have a nice little set of matching accessories to the bigger sampler and this was what happened with the English Beauty last year. Creating ABC pyn Pillow and Bargello Sheep Needlekeep  was a natural for Jeannette.   It was stitched on 32ct Lt Mocha Zweigart  fabric but can be done on any neutral fabric. There are 3 pieces to this set: a Needlebook with an insert to it, making a removable pincushion and a large long rectangle shaped pyn roll that can have quite a few uses.  A cut piece of fabric of 13" x15" will generously stitch all the pieces. There is a silk thread pack and a finishing pack with the wool and other items to finish as you see in the photo.

ABC Sampler.......................Jeannette Douglas

We've seen Jeannettes love of  typefaces and playing with fonts before but here she has  combined her love of typefaces with her love of samplers and stitching to create the ABC Sampler..  It is  a large sampler with the abc cross stitched and then 3 bands of lovely specialty stitches grouped into 3 types of smaller samplers. One focuses on just the specialty stitches in the needlepoint group, then blackwork is the focus and lastly is the motif type sampler. It is stitched on a neutral fabric on several different counts, whether you like 32 ct or 35,36 all will look equally well, as well as 40 ct. It uses silk threads and the design size is 8" x 13  1/3.  You have the option of stitching this as one sampler, or you can split it up and stitch the  ABC part which measures approx. 8" x 9" and  each band sampler separately and on different fabrics.  Each band sampler  finishes approx.  3" x 5.50".

It is comprised of a sampler about 4" x 6" and then 3 small squares under 2" x2 which create a place for biscornu,  a needlekeep and a scissors pocket on the back to fit into the tray. Model is shown stitched on 32 ct.  Butter Pecan by Lakeside Linens.  There is a  silk thread pack available as well as a separate wool pack.

Afternoon in New York, London and Paris..............Country Cottage

Nikki Leeman started a series depicting an afternoon in major cities.  So far she has designed for London, Paris and now New York.  Famous landmarks are shown in each and you can choose to stitch the whole scene or perhaps just pick out elements to stitch.  While New York has the Empire State building, I just adore the taxi and food carts.  And I adore the double decker bus and red phone booth on London even though Big Ben and Buckingham Palace are there and for Paris..well I do like the Eiffel Tower, but the hot air balloons are a big attraction for me, as well as the outdoor café.   Based on Nikki's interpretation, I'd live in either of these cities.  The finished size on all three scenes is approx. 13"x4".

Little Red Chair Sampler............The Scarlett House

The Little Red Chair Sampler was designed for the Attic's Summer School Soiree in 2014, but is now available for everyone...yeah!  Love the design elements, we had those ladder back chairs at our house, although ours were not red and the border is one of my favorites.  The model was stitched on 45 ct. Meadow Rue from Lakeside Linens.  Remember though, if you can't work on counts this small, just pick a larger count, it would still be a wonderful sampler on 32 ct or 28 ct. linen.  This is suppose to be fun and enjoyable, not a stitch you struggle through.  She has used the Gloriana Tudor Silk to stitch this in the following colors:

Gloriana Tuder Silk:Olivine, Schoolhouse Red, Ironwood, Attic Blue, Thistle Green, and Antique Black
