Christmas stocking idea

 

Sometimes were amazed at how creative you stitchers are. We recently received this picture from Joyce F. and we could not resist featuring the picture in this news section.

 

Joyce purchased Sylvie Teytaud's design featuring elves decorating a Christmas tree. Here's what Joyce says about her project:

"I adapted Sylvie's wonderful design to a needlepoint stocking for my granddaughter. Never have done beading before, which was a challenge! Thank you so much for these darling elves!"

 

Congratulations Joyce, you did a fantastic job adapting the pattern to the size of the stocking. And the beaded garlands add just a little extra glamour to the stocking, making it look real precious.

If you too have stitched one of our designs and found an interesting way of adapting or finishing your piece, don't hesitate to send us a picture and will share it. It's sure to inspire many other stitchers!

Christmas comes in many shapes with Perrette Samouiloff

 

Have you ever mounted your stitched pieces accordion style? It's a great way of displaying your mini motifs because they stand up on their own and look great on a mantlepiece. Perrette Samouiloff's Red card-size motifs are just perfect for that. You can also vary and mount them in twos or threes using the same principle.

The wind was a nor'wester, blowing squally off the sea

 

As in Stevenson's poem, the little ship is battling strong winds and hurling waves.  This is a little gem of a needlework project, and it's perfect on a biscornu shape that gives extra dimension to the waves. A new cross stitch design by Faby Reilly.

Grow you own vegetable patch

 

We were delighted to receive this new pattern by Perrette Samouiloff because it triggered so many project ideas. Each little motif is easy to place according to your own constraints, depending what you want to stitch. You can make a recipe book cover, or space out the motif on a shopping bag (great for the farmer's market!). If you've got little ones around, you can stitch different baby bibs and place mats (they will all fight for the carrots!). Or you could stitch it as it is, beautiful in any case.

More whimsical stitching with Barbara Ana

 

Here's the first of Barbara Ana's new cross stitch designs for the fall.

Zoom in further and you will get a glimpse of possibly the tiniest pair of scissors designed in cross stitch! Can you see them (there are several, you need to look real close)?
