More New In the Shop
Sent: June 28, 2006
I had a marvelous weekend stitching (in between housework & yardwork!) on the new sampler from Carriage House Sampling – Village of Hawk Run Hollow! I’ve almost finished the first block and it was all I could do to tear myself away from it to go to bed at night!
Here’s the latest on what has come into the shop in the last few days – we were so busy Friday and Saturday I didn’t get a chance to send out my usual end of the week email!
I discovered while I was at market that I can order Rose Mary LeBlanc’s charts again – for those of you who don’t know, she is a designer from New Orleans and now my shopowner friend Gayle in New Orleans (where we sent all the Hurricane Stash!) is distributing Rose Mary’s charts. Anyway, we used to sell a lot of her charts, especially her Hurricane Tracking Chart. We now have the Tracking Chart in – when I look at the map, I see that the Atlantic coastline is far bigger than our little Gulf Coast – not that I wish a hurricane on anyone, but I think we’ve seen our fair share here in the last couple of years. See the photo (scroll down when the page comes up) at http://www.needledelights.com/index.php/photos/18.html
You can see other charts that are available at
http://www.accentsinc.com/cgi-bin/store/commerce.cgi (this is Gayle’s shop in New Orleans). Let me know if you’d like me to carry any of her other charts.
Tea Shop mystery books (they should be in any day!) – When I sent out a blurb about these books, I got this nice email back from Martha Beyersdorf in Vermont – she says, “I have read them all and also her scrapbooking series. Love them! Found a tea shop in Summerville, SC when my husband and I were in Charleston last year and "pretended" I was in Theo's shop! I am sure new readers to the series will love them as well. Lots of local history too.”
Sweetheart Tree – D is for Dog – such a cute kit $18.95, Happy Are Those (entire verse reads happy are those whose hearts are filled with love) – Quick kit with a Hardanger Heart surrounded by flowers and the verse. Chubby Nutcrackers patterns are too cute – see her new stuff at http://www.sweethearttree.com/
Heart in Hand – New Mother’s Wisdom charts Look Both Way, Mind Your Manners, Gardening Medley, Wee One: Pumpkins, Flags, Birds
JBW Designs – One of my favorites from market – Advent Calendar comes with 24 adorably small designs to complete an Advent Calendar and the pattern shows lots of ways to finish the designs in other ways as well. In her French Country series, Apple & Pumpkin are charts of small motifs to form the Apple and Pumpkin.
Prairie Moon – Another market favorite – ATTN HALLOWEEN LOVERS!! Mr. Bonesjangle and Witch Boot? are fabulous Halloween pieces that are finishing stocking style in the shape of a witch boot. Icabod Crow is another fun piece and Holiday Farm is cute too.
DebBee’s Designs – I discovered this designer at Indianapolis and loved all her canvaswork. My favorite is called “Hot Stuff!. Also fun is a Diagonal Stitch Sampler Checkbook Cover and Friendship Gift Box.
Caron Collection – 12 more new Watercolours – yippee!!!!!!!!
One of our orders of hardback books came in too – I’ve scanned them and will put them on the website tomorrow – too late tonight!
See you soon – hope you’re stitching!Kathy
