I am excited to share with you some fun, new cross stitch charts!
I REST THY NEEDLE
I had a conversation at needlework market with Lone Elm Lane, which lead to the conception of this wonderful wooden pincushion/sewing box clamp. Stephanie's take on the idea turned out fabulous...thanks Stephanie, I love it! The sewing box is painted in a new vintage fashion, giving the piece a gentle "time-worn" look. I chose to use the Vintage Dove paint finish for the "I Rest Thy Needle" design. Design is worked on 36 count Legacy linen over 2 threads, using hand dyed flosses. The boxes are available for special order here.
A new chart to the flash card series. This is the 3rd such flashcard that I have done, they are some of my best sellers! The new word is Boo! A sweet little field mouse can me found out in her pumpkin patch, complete in her witchy attire! Chenille trim and tiny glass beads for stars adds detail and just the right finish. The design is worked on 40 count Pewter linen, using hand dyed flosses.
"AUTUMN'S FRUITFUL LABOR"
The floss colors in this sampler are so pretty and rich! This piece sort of grew, getting larger as the design process went along. I originally started with only the upper portion and decided to add one of my favorite harvest verses. The design is worked on 36 count Legacy linen over 2 threads, using hand dyed flosses.
"ONE FOR THE CROW"
Pattern for two little pinkeeps that make great companion pieces to each other. I have always liked the little gardener's verse and can almost hear the goode witch sing it as she pokes each seed into the soil. Linen ric rac trim is hand stitched to the sides of the pieces for a perfect accent. Designs are worked on 40 count Legacy linen over 2 threads, using hand dyed flosses. I plan on displaying these on an old tin tray with acorns and artificial crow that I gently dusted with cinnamon. Artificial crow and acorns are also available for purchase here.
