Every time I see new charts, there are more Halloween charts.  It is becoming a very popular holiday.
Next weekend we have a small trade show, so there will probably be a small amount of charts coming out this week.  But here are 5 new ones:

Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks brings us another Christmas 'ornament' with Happy Holidays.  Stitched on a colored fabric with a winter white and silver braid accents, the stitch count is 122w x 173h.  Why not try this design using just an overdyed thread on more of a neutral background?

The Scarlett House is becoming a favorite designer of mine.  I stitched her Coverlet House piece and now I want to stitch this one...and I love the verse.  If you can't make it out, it says: "Inch by inch, Row by row, X's make my sampler grow".  Stitch count is 119w x 64h.  It's stitched on 40ct  for the small pin cushion but there's no reason you couldn't stitch it on a larger count and frame the piece.  Be aware that this piece must be stitched on a linen or evenweave fabric as there are some petite stitches and a Rice stitch, which is not difficult at all.

We have two more by Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks.  Halloween Hat is 237 x 236 and Halloween Atmosphere is 262wx 189h.  Both are using  DMC floss.

Last, but not least, comes Pumpkin Brew from Country Stitches - With thy Needle & Thread...a witch with her broom and cat and blooming cauldrons.  The design is 188w x 135h and calls for a 35ct fabric, but can be done on a larger count.  It uses Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Arts Sampler threads.

Stop by and check out these and other new charts in the shop.  There's always another project to add to the pile.

Just Cross Stitch Annual Christmas Issue should be arriving shortly.  After all, Labor Day and September are just 2 weeks away.  So I guess that means that the kids will be going back to school in about a week. Where did the summer go?

Speaking of Labor Day, WE WILL BE OPEN ON SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 1 FROM 11-2.  Stop by and make sure you have the supplies you need to finish that project you're starting when the kids go back to school.
