WHAT'S NEW...JUST A FEW!
Plum Street Samplers 3 new charts have finally arrived, as seen above...a trio of patriotic designs.
Kathy Barrick is back with This Little Gift. Another one done on a 40ct fabric, finishing out at about 4x3. You can always stitch it on a 28 or 32ct fabric of your choice.
Brenda Gervais, With Thy Needle & Thread has Grand Olde Flag and Bluebird Out My Window. I love this patriotic one and will probably have to stitch it. The Bluebird Out My Window is finished as a small pillow with a ruffled ribbon trim.
Continuing in the series of Floral Postcards, June is our latest addition. These are a great small gift for a friend or co-worker....just pick their birthday month and stitch it up. Would also look great if finished as a pillow. May was a bouquet of lily of the valley. When I was growing up we had a large bed of them outside our living room window and I think this will be a 'must stitch' design.
Dames of the Needle presents Eliza Anne Scott 1847. It is an adaptation of an antique sampler she owns. She's added a few things and has taken a slightly modern twist by floating the alphabet and numbers. Stitched with Gentle Art and Weeks Dye Works threads, on 32ct Peep's Lost Sheep fabric, it finishes at about 5.5 x 9...a nice size.
These are but a few of the new releases that have arrived at the shop today. Stop in and check them all out.
