Sew She Did....................it's Sew Emma

This is a new company here in the shop, It's Sew Emma and as the name implies, Lori Holt, the designer, is a creative quilter at heart and I believe she is just starting in the Counted cross stitch arena.  "Sew She Did" is a colorful design featuring a few common tools for both stitchers and quilters, a sewing machine, pin cushion and scissors.  The Sew She Did Cross Stitch pattern comes with full-color instructions, diagrams. The cross stitch is designed to work on 10-count cloth and approximately finishes at 10” x 14”.   She also shows it stitched on 28 ct. linen which finishes approx. 7.25" x 10".

Galina, Anya, & Karina Eggs....Teresa Layman Designs

Teresa presented 5 knotted eggs in Nashville, that were simply gorgeous.  And her presentation...exceptional.  She found a finely shredded paper grass to complement each egg, she then found white shadow boxes at Michaels and a linen hanky which she then attached to the background, glued the paper grass on top of the hanky(only in the center, large enough so that the egg was nestled into it) and then glued the finished egg design in the grass.   Each finishes approx 2-1/4 x 3...and displayed in the shadow boxes it just took these eggs to the next level.

Knotted Miniatures....Crossed Wing Collection

Three new offerings from Crossed Wing, is this wonderful creation of tiny French Knots.  Worked with Teresa Layman's concept of French Knots filling in an area that is pre-stamped just like Punch Needle... this set of designs is absolutely exquisite. The design comes stamped very clearly on the base fabric. You supply the flosses, and all those tiny little knots. Together, they fill in the small areas to create a miniature masterpiece. Four Seasons Chickadee finishes 4 inches square. The fabric piece resembles a paint-by-number. Crossed Wing does the best birds I've seen and these miniature knotted versions are simply wonderful.

Out of the Everywhere....Teresa Layman Designs

'Where did you come from, baby dear? Out of the everywhere, into the here.' Teresa Layman has brought us a very special birth sampler announcement! It is cross-stitched on 36ct Cream Edinburgh linen in shades of DMC, Weeks and Gentle Art overdyed flosses. There is a special opening in the chart which is reserved for a miniature knotwork piece by Teresa called 'Fairy Godmother.' (Available with this chart, or separately) If you choose 'not to knot,  you can cut out the opening in the linen, hem the edges, and insert a photo of your special baby instead. The main sampler is worked in blues and aquas, because of the colors of the Fairy Godmother showpiece in the center. If you really, really want more pinks... change the checkerboard blanket and baby's dress in the miniature knotwork portion, and adjust border colors in the sampler. Measuring approx 12 x 17, this piece is elegant and stunning.
