Two Final Releases for 2013

Hi All!

How's that for a title to the post? Not very inventive, but to the point. đŸ™‚

I've had such fun designing this year, and am so blessed to have met many new friends in my travels and over the internet. What a busy time 2013 was!

I hope you like my last two designs for this year.. thank you so very much for all your support and encouraging words these past eight years!

First up is a follow-up to Halloweenies…


Winter Wienerland

Stitch count: 170 x 73
Fabric: 32 ct. Plum Street Paddock by R&R

Fibers: The Gentle Art (Old Hickory, Roasted Marshmallow,
Caramel Corn, Cottage Blue, Dried Thyme, Garden Gate,
Chamomile, Espresso Bean, Weathered Barn, Old Red Paint,
and Oatmeal)

Stitches used: All cross stitch over two threads.

Framed by: Sherri Berkman at Total Framing. LOVE this frame!

Here are some suggested substitutions, if you'd like them:

Fabric: Perhaps a color like Lakeside Linens' Flagstone or something warmer,
like Lakeside's Meadow Rue. R&R also has a gorgeous golden color line,
including one called Espresso. Picture This Plus has Legacy, which is
also a good choice. Ultimately, the right color is what looks good to you.

Fibers: The DMC equivalents are 640, 644, 739, 928, 3011, 3021,
3022, 3371, 3858, 3859, and 3865.


And finally, two more stocking ornaments, along the lines of the His & Hers Thanksgiving Stockings; however, they could also make fun hostess gifts or ornaments for exchanges with stitching girlfriends! (Or not? It was just a thought!)


Wintertide Friends

Stitch count: Each stocking is approximately 40 x 120.
Fabric: 40 ct. Olde Towne Blend by R&R.

Fibers: The Gentle Art (Wheat Fields, Gingersnap, Walnut, Oatmeal,
Dried Thyme, Espresso Bean, Maple Syrup, and Cherry Bark)

Trim: Norfolk Pine mini rickrack by R&R.
Buttons: by Kelmscott Designs.
Stitches used: All cross stitch over two threads.
Stocking Tutorial is included in the chart pack.

Some suggested substitutions:

If you're not certain you want to stitch on 40 ct. fabric, feel free to use
a lower count! Some other color choices are Lentil or Buttercream by
Lakeside Linens, or Espresso by R&R.

These are the DMC equivalents: 422, 434, 646, 822, 3011,
3371, 3781, and 3857.


Both of these designs will be mailing out to the shops on my auto immediately, and all of the distributors should have them in their warehouses by early next week!

Thank you again, to everyone! I hope you've had a very good year of stitching. đŸ™‚ Now I need to get back to the drawing board for the first releases of 2014!
