Just a few new designs from Alessandra Adelaide to share. These are great designs to switch out the DMC listed and use a nice hand dyed thread like Gentle Arts Sampler, Weeks Dye Works or Classic Colourworks. The colour variation will give real character to your finished piece.

We have some very cute designs to share today from Art to Heart. We'll just picture them below and link them to the product so you can get all the info on them.
From Glendon Place, 3 more from her dessert series. Pictures do not do these designs justice. When you see them in person like we did, they just take your breath away. They've been very popular, even received orders on our way home from Nashville so if we run short on numbers we will be getting more soon. Thread packs are also available and they include Dinky Dyes hand dyed silk threads. (Sorry no DMC conversion provided)
Fudgy Mint Mousse
Remember to click the date above to see all of these plus a couple more not highlighted here along with all the details about the patterns.

First up today are some new items from Lizzie Kate. The first two are Limited Edition kits that were a special feature at the Nashville Trade Show 2014. The first is called Song of Spring and the second Do Your Best. After pre-orders while at the show we have a few left but when they are gone they are gone. Each comes with everything you need to complete it as shown including all the fabrics, rick rack, beads, buttons, charm and threads along with a bonus chart for a scissor fob.
"Flowers" was also a limited edition partial kit. Includes fabric, beads and charm. We aren't sure why it is a limited edition but we thought it was cute and very appropriate to look toward spring and stitch something nice and springlike.
We also received pre-orders for this delightful little design that includes fabric, beads and charm so by the time we returned home we only have one left but this one we can get more of so if we run out we'll be happy to do so. It's called "A Little Snow" although this year I think I could use a design called "A Little Less Snow!"
We know Christmas is gone and just a memory, but there is another coming and it's time to start stitching in preparation. "A Little Christmas" also comes with 32 count linen beads and charm and is very cute.
From Praiseworthy Stitches we started with these cute little pin cushion limited edtion kits. Apparently only 300 were put together for the Nashville show and we grabbed a bunch. They come in pink and green as shown and include an easy to stitch design along with everything needed to turn it into a magnetic pin cushion that will adhere to those magnetic boards or to your sewing machine and keep pins or needles handy. Get one while they last.
And two great designs in the tradition of Praiseworthy Stitches requiring hand dyed fabric, a lot of hand dyed threads etc. but look spectacular when complete. The first is Santa's Midnight Ride and then Carols on the Square.
You will also find some great new designs from Hands On Designs and Summer House Stitche Works like this design called "Virtue is Bold". Make sure to check them all out by clicking the date above.

This latest Lizzie Kate autoship has arrived. If we run out of any of these and you want it please let us know. Lizzie Kate will be at the Nashville show and we can get more while there. A new 4 part Flip-It series begins with a seasonal theme. Four parts because it has Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. The first are here, Spring & Summer with the next two coming sometime in March. Linda Ebright has also provided a complimentary chart available on her website that allows you to stitch all four in one large design if you wish.

We are pleased to announce that we are now carrying Dinky Dyes silk floss. It is a high quality, beautiful twisted hand dyed silk that comes in 8 metres skeins. While we have only a portion of the colours available we had to start somewhere. We also only have a couple of each colour at this time so if you need more than two or don't see a colour that Dinky Dyes carries please feel free to talk with us and ask about it. We are happy to add it to our next order. You can see them by clicking here.
We also have a few new designs to share with you today. To see them all click the date above. From Filigram these lovely seasonal samplers would make a beautiful set on a wall. Stitched using Gentle Arts Sampler threads, DMC conversion is provided.
And from Stickadeen von der Wiehenburg Flower Square Niobe and Scarlett
The designer has provided 5 colourways of DMC floss for this design. One in basic colours and the other 4 in Seasonal colours to mimic the seasons.
