I had this all ready drafted and ready to publish, but have been so stinking busy I totally forgot to post! So here it is all be it late! I hope that you have had a chance to check out the Harvest Market Hop Needlearts Show on line -http://harvestmarkethop.com/ Designers and shops were both missing the fall market for showing our products or going to one place to find the new things in the industry. We were lucky to have 2 on line replacements, the Norden fall show and this one. Hope that you come and stop by. They have a great facebook page too that shows all the sneak peeks from the vendors.
We have 3 new pieces for September 2015 release. I do love pincushions and when I saw the Lone Elm Lane rounds it was a natural for me to design a pincushion. I used the brown and the red coloured wood rounds. The Pumpkin Pincushion is cross stitched, with no specialty stitches and stitched with cotton handdyed floss. The Bargello Pincushion is specialty stitched - no cross stitch in this one. It uses all silk floss and a new colour from Gloriana Threads called Falcon Brown and I love it. Both pincushion charts are just charts I didn't add in the threads this time. I thought maybe you could pick some different colours to use in the Bargello pincushion as it lends itself to choosing one overdyed colour and the picking a few solid colours to go with it and would have a neat finish of your own. The Over the River Sampler piece is a take the over the river theme depicted in cross stitch and specialty stitches. I has an embellishment pkg. that has all the silks and special mini buttons to complete the piece.
We will have the last in the Seasonal set that began with The Spring Bird coming in a few weeks for the last release in that series. Get your Autumn Acorn now as it was released in mid-August.
