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.

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".

Bird Box..........................Jeannette Douglas Designs

Since ancient times birds have been connected with the sky and having a super natural link between heaven and earth. We seem to be so enchanted with birds! We love birds on samplers and small pin cushions or  scissors fobs. They are a joy to stitch. In this chart you will meld your abilities to stitch and do some finishing as these parts all fit into a box created for the sampler and the smalls called a shadow box and in this case Jeannette is calling it Bird Box. 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.
