Just the facts.

The wait is over. Here is what will be available at market this weekend designed/reproduced by little ole me. Special thanks go out to Kathy Krause and Jennifer Regan for helping me with my stitching. You can click on any of the pictures to see them a little bigger and better.

This is Christmas (Raise the Roof). Frame by Crescent Colours and button pack available through Just Another Button Co. Fabric is 32 count Natural Belfast. Threads are a mix of Sampler Threads/Weeks Dye Works/Crescent Colours. A DMC conversion is provided. Stitch count is about 110 by 180.

Winter & Christmas (Raise the Roof). Fabrics are Parchment and Denim Blue Gingham by Weeks Dye Works. Fibers by Weeks Dye Works. A DMC conversion is provided. Button pack and pins available through Just Another Button Co.

Sampler Roundy (Shakespeare's Peddler). Available as a kit (limited edition), and a graph. Fabric is 32 count Vintage Meadow Rue by Lakeside Linens (not included in kit). Kit comes with limited edition threads, reproduction antique brass button, chart and instructions for making the pincushion base. I also am making pincushion bases for sale (if you don't want to bother with it.) Graph uses limited edition Harvest pack by The Gentle Art. I have these for sale to shops and stitchers.

Spanish Mystery Sampler (Shakespeare's Peddler reproduction). Fabric is 40 count Vintage Light Exemplar by Lakeside Linens. Threads are Belle Soie, Needlepoint Silks and Gloriana.

Jenny Bean's Christmas 2010 Ornament (Shakespeare's Peddler original design). Fabric is 40 count Vintage Meadow Rue by Lakeside Linens. Threads are by Crescent Colours (Belle Soie). Conversion to DMC provided.) The ornament base was something I found at Hobby Lobby and painted. Then I strung a chain through it. Easy-schmeasy!

Halloween Towne (Raise the Roof). Crescent Colours is distributing this. All four parts come together as one piece with the Belle Soie silks. Button pack is by Just Another Button Company. Fabric is 32 count Vintage Pearled Barley by Lakeside Linens.

Father Sail Home (Shakespeare's Peddler original design). Fabric is 40 count Vintage Meadow Rue by Lakeside Linens. Threads are a limited edition thread pack by The Gentle Art, but a conversion to their regular line and DMC is provided. Pencil box by Olde Colonial Designs.

I hope you like all of my new designs. These are available from me, they will be at market this weekend, and you can most likely get them at your local shop (bug them to get an order in, would ya?) A lot of hard work goes into designing, stitching, framing, charting, organizing, printing, stuffing, and just getting these babies ready for your hands. If any of you asks me "is this all you've got?" -- you're going to get a knuckle sandwich.

Happy stitching!

Wow, just WOW! Great work! I especially love the Father Sail Home, as I live near the ocean, close to where a tall ship replica is docked. If it has a tall ship in it, I have to stitch it! :D

I just ran to my LNS and gave them my list (after checking it twice) and about everything you're offering was on there. So if you meet some nice ladies named Liz and Dianna from Fancy Works in Bloomington, Indiana...you know that they were sent with strict orders to get me one of everything - ask to see the list because its all on there ;o)

Sharon said...

I was going to say "holy moly" you did all those designs....where do you find the time!!!!

Whew, no knuckle sandwich for me. LOL.....Seriously they are all so beautiful. I have a hankering for the Jenny Bean....got to have it.
