A New Release







Here is one of three new releases mailing out very soon to your local or online needlework shop!

John & Abigail Cover

The model, stitched by my good friend Pat Ryan, was done on 36 ct. Stars Hollow Blend (stitch count: 122w x 74h). The threads used are by The Gentle Art in Grecian Gold, Old Red Paint, Oatmeal, Cameo Pink, Piney Woods, Heirloom Gold, Island Blue, Endive, Garden Gate, Wood Trail, Uniform Blue, Cherry Bark, and Lambswool. A DMC conversion is provided in the chart, but you may wish to note that Cameo Pink is used very little in this chart, so if you find that inconvenient, you may want to use the DMC equivalent (3779), or perhaps find something that's a good substitute! (Only John and Abigail's cheeks are blushed with this color.)

As for the trims, I used Lady Dot Creates' pom trim in Mossy along the bottom edge of the finished cushion, and pom trim in Vintage along the other three sides. To finish it off, I used silk ribbon trim in Vintage to form a bow, which I then sewed into place using a tiny button.


I hope you like my followup to last year's George & Martha! I'll be back soon with my other two new releases!

    Good morning, Paulette. Love, love!! I was at Elegant Stitches finishing retreat last month and used some of the vintage ribbon for a finish. Absolutely beautiful and perfect for a primitive look. I won’t admit to how many yards I brought home. LOL
