Hi! How are you doing? Hope you've been stitching. And have I got some new designs for you! The above pictures are the new Cross Eyed Cricket charts that just arrived this morning. I'm itching to do the Peas & Q's, it so reminds me of a Quaker style sampler. The Picture Perfect looks really interesting to try. You mount your photo on mat board and attach to the top of the fabric then mount in the frame. Celebrate America is also calling to me - probably because of the red, white and blue theme. Summer is bright and colorful and is done on a purple fabric.
JBW Designs just sent us two collections, available only through JBW, so you'll see them here first. The Bunny Collection is a set of five designs, with a number of layouts. You could do one bunny as a birth sampler with a name and date; two bunnies could be placed side by side for twins; a collection of 3 bunnies, side by side, would just make a nice picture; 4 bunnies would make a great pillow. You have a great deal of variety with this chart. Fall Ornamentals contains 12 separate small designs that could be stitched individually or use 4 designs within the acorn border and finish as a standup easel. A charm pack accompanies Fall Ornamentals. The entire collection is similar to her 12 Days of Christmas.
Little House Needleworks has issued the next in their ornament series - Red House in Winter. It looks so vibrant that I had to start it last night. The house is done in Crescent Bing Cherry and is real rich. All other colors are DMC. (One of these days, I swear, I will get the hang of putting in pictures!!!!!)
Just got word yesterday, that Blackbird Designs has gotten their act together and the last Loose Feathers should be showing up by late May! YES!!!!
Guess that's all for now. I've seen some other charts that are nice and as soon as they arrive, I'll give you a peek at them. For now, keep stitching!!!
