Lizzie Kate has sent out new charts. Tiny Tidings XVI has 5 designs. Santa Claus is Coming to Town is Santa 2011. The second in the Inspirational Boxer series is out.

6 Fat Men have finally arrived. She's been blogging about them for quite a while and the first 3 are finally here.

Stitch them individually and frame them or make hanging pillows from them and use as ornaments or hang from doorknobs or any knob in the house. OR, you can stitch them all together in one piece with the addition of a special border stating 'Snowmen melt my heart'.

Diamonds Delight

from Stickideen von der Wiehenburg

ByGone Stitches does it again with Quaker Christmas II, featuring Songs of the Season

Jackie O Lantern from Amy Bruecken Designs. We also have a small one of hers called EEk with a witches hat and shoes. Sue Hillis has 2 charts Candy Corn Crazy 1 & 2. Really cute ornaments. Notice the candy corn fabric! It was ordered at market and should be here by Labor Day.

Chart number 3 will be out shortly and you can stitch a type of banner stating B O O using the candy corn shape and halloweeny ribbons.

Check out this cat coming out of the pumpkin for the holiday!

NeedleWork Press has their Book of Days - a beautiful calendar for 2012 with a couple of charts.

Blackbird Designs have done it again. 4 great charts.

Morning Star works up quickly and can be framed or put on top of a paper mache spice box, with 6 2" high round boxes inside to hold goodies. We hope to have those boxes in the shoppe shortly.

Casting a Spell is just beautiful. Placed in a glass covered wood box it is quite impressive. We should have these boxes shortly, too. Halloween Eve can become two pictures. Just stitch the top alone or even the pumpkin and crow can be done alone. Make two instead of just one. Or how about making 2 pillows for the holiday. The Raven Bewitched is cool. Think I may need to do this one.

Dames of the Needle has two new Nantucket charts out, one of the beaches and a previous teaching piece, Nantucket Strawberries, showing the coast and a lighthouse and of course the strawberries.

Rosewood Manor, Barnwood Buttons, above and Baltimore Quilt.

La D Da has The Child's Guardian and Count Your Blessings.

JBW is back with more Christmas ornaments, another

stocking and a premade needle roll and chart.

By The Bay has come out with Stitch an Inch charts. Stitched 1 over 1 is a great idea, but why not stitch them over 2 and get slightly larger pictures. They can still be mounted using her ideas. She's planning them for every season and holiday. Halloween is in process and, of course, I can't wait till it's out. Each chart also contains a bonus chart. In these 2 they are a mermaid and lobster.

We will be back with more from market.
