Tools of the Trade (I, 2, 3).......................Blackberry Lane Designs

First 3 pieces of Tools of the Trade show in Part 3, a large pin cushion with the motifs of the sewing trade which match the motifs shown on all the designs in this series.  Part 2 is a Needle Minder and Part 1 is a Pin Keeper.  Notice on part 1 the extra elements in the picture, there is a pin cushion which has buttons stitched and real buttons added...so cute and it's shown mounted in an old fashioned glass salt cellar.  But you could put it in an egg up or any small bowl available.  Look around at what you have around you, mini cup and saucer would be cute.

George & Martha..............................................Plum Street Sampler

Keeping with the Patriotic Theme, Paulette presents the first couple of the country, George and Martha Washington.   Again she stitched them on 36 ct. linen and they finish approx. 4" x 5 1/4".  She stitched with Classic Colorworks but there is a conversion listed for DMC.  While Paulette doesn't call for it, I look at this piece and think there are opportunities here to use a couple of specialty stitches to add some dimension (not that it needs it but specialty stitches are fun) and I know I'd add a bead or two on it.  I stitched a house a couple of months ago that did specialty stitches on the roof and the doors and I loved it so I might be tempted to do that here.  And the middle of each of the star motifs...well that just says a bead to me.  Any way, stitch it the way it is shown or add your own special touch.   Looks like a fun stitch to me!

Winsome Pair.........................Plum Street Samplers

The final patriotic offering from Paulette is Winsome Pair which is her tribute to the dogs of the white house, a scottie, and his buddy, the bald eagle.  (usually Paulette does dachsunds so this is a new dog for her).  So cute and approx. design size is approx. 5 1/2" x 2" when worked on 36 ct. linen.  Worked using Classic Colorworks but DMC conversion is included. This is such a cute design I think I'd use a couple of specialty stitches and you know I'd use a bead for the center of the flowers at least.

Serenity Harbor Sampler..............................By The Bay Needleart

I am in love with the new 12 part block of the month sampler by Donna Baylis of  By The Bay Needleart....12-part "block of the month" sampler called Serenity Harbor Sampler.    Each month in 2015, a new section will come out.  This sampler takes you from the ocean to the shore and and when completed will be approximately 31 1/4" x  9 3/4" if stitched on 36 ct. linen.  While Donna does list DMC colors, she encourages each stitcher to use their own favorites, so pick out silks or over-dyed flosses or stitch with the DMC....you make the decision.  If you don't feel comfortable changing to silks, well just let us know and we'll help you out.  Linen...same thing...pick a favorite linen, whatever color you want, whatever count you want.  I personally am stitching this on 36 ct. Light Examplar from Lakeside Linen, but we've helped pick out other colors in the shop for stitchers.  When you sign up for the series, we'll give your name to Donna and she'll invite you to the blog for the design where you can post your progress.   For those who sign up for the year, Donna will have a special Free needle book/project kit that she will be working on which will be personalized with your first name and the year of your birth.   You can track Donna's progress with this special kit and find out more details for anyone stitching the series on her blog.

Newest annual little kit from Chessie & Me, American Coast which features another seacoast theme (which we feel are designed just for us..thank you Linda).  Since we are at sea level, we realize this is someone else's coast but we love it anyway with the lighthouse signaling the sailors home while the flag is fluttering overhead.   Wow, our two favorite themes, patriotic and coastal.  Offered as a complete kit which includes Lakeside Linens 36 ct. Vintage Meadow Rue Linen and Gloriana silks.  The sailboat is done over one, however Smyrna Crosses are used in the border, cherries and stars in the flag.  The roof and front door are stitched in satin stitch.  Finished size is approx. 2 1/2" x 4 1/2".    It's a wonderful way to try stitching with silk threads without a huge investment.   This small design can be framed or turned into a sweet little summer pin pillow.

Tudor Rose Stitch Book.................................Chessie & Me

I love these stitch books Linda is doing..in fact I've got the entire collection in my stash..notice I didn't say I'd stitched every one of them, but I certainly intend to do it in the near future.  Once you stitch the design, you can use the box as is, or like Linda you can paint the box, mount the needlework on the lid, inside and out and then use it for storing the matching fob.  Simply fabulous for a small container to sit beside your sewing chair to hold your scissors, pins, threads, etc. so you have them close at hand, and when you are not stitching a wonderful display of your needlework.  The boxes are 3" x 5" x 1  1/2".  To make sure the design fits the box, you need to use 36 ct. linen.  Linda always uses some fun stitches, nun stitch, satin stitch, Smyrna stitch and eyelets in this case, and stitches with hand-dyed floss.  You will need a piece of Weeks Dye Works Louisiana Hot Sauce Wool to mount on the lid inside and out, if you are finishing as a box as sampled

Spring Flame......................................Heartstring Samplery

I love stitching Bargello, so this bright cheerful piece was a sweet surprise for spring.  Bright colors  using overdyed fibers and it is trimmed with Sea Glass mini ball fringe, from Dames of the Needle,  which is becoming the rage for small pieces.   Shown stitched on 40 ct. linen  the approx. finished size is 5 3/4" x 3 1/4", but remember, you can stitch it on any count you want and it would just increase the size a little.

Good Every Day.................................Erica Michaels

Linda is typically a "glass half full" kind of gal so this sentiment suits her perfectly!  When she redid this design for linen, she finished it into this beautiful tool case.  What a great idea!  But if you don't need a tool case you can simply stitch it and frame it.  Options, how great is that!  Approx. finished design size....11" x 5"

Always Thankful.....................Erica Michaels Designs

A selection of favorite Petites Collection designs are now available as separate charts specifically for those who prefer not to use the silk gauze.  There is no gauze included in the package so you are free to stitch on your favorite fabric.  Always Thankful is a fabulous piece because it is a wonderful reminder to never take anything for granted, and to be thankful for all we have.  The color palette is autumnal, but also very restful.  Look closely and you will notice that the border has a different texture--that's created by stitching rows of backstitching all around the outside edge in the same color as the background.  Finished size when stitched on 14 ct Aida or 28 ct. linen over  threads .............6 1/2" x  8 1/4".
