Barbara Bergsten’s “Lily” shifts are inspired by Lily Pulitzer classic dresses. She’s had them single as ornaments and grouped as pictures. These have been joined by the most adorable full-size Christmas stocking in, of course, pink and green. There are also new shifts, including a sunny one in yellow and orange.
Patt Large has adorable patterned bones that can be personalized with your dog’s name or bought with the breed name. There is also a clever idea for a two part frame. The top area has a smaller version of the patchwork dog (or Persian cat), while the bottom area has a photo. She also has a variety of geometric crosses in various colors that are set into rectangular frames. They come in various colors and have words or other embellishments on them. There are six in all.
Petei has come out with a Little Drummer Boy to add to her nativity set. Alice Peterson has some lovely patchwork designs including a sun (with painted fabric rays) and an elephant parade.
In addition to those wonderful parrots discussed yesterday, Elizabeth Turner has added two other wildlife series. There is a set of eight glorious butterflies and moths. The other series is of flowers with designs that look as if they are straight from one of those roll-down science charts.
Rebecca Wood has lots of new stockings and stocking cuffs. She also has a new nativity, snowmen as the figures, that is available as a stocking or as a series of smaller pieces. Just too cute is her new series of travel rounds. These include her moose doing silly things: a moose playing football for Ohio or dancing the hula in Hawaii. Finally there is a charming set of round ornaments of a farmhouse, one for each season.
CBK Needlepoint has new Scott Church designs, including a giraffe with a sore throat and an ice skating elephant. She also has two new needlework bunnies, one for knitting and one for needlepoint. & more has several new sayings, including “pardon my french,” I’m thinking that would be great on a desk.
Kristine Kingston has a love canvas in several color choices. Inspired by the famous Philadelphia statue, these have a dog paw for the O. Little Shoppe continues to make great 3-D needlepoint designs. Their newest are candy rolls (think short cylinders) that are stitched like bolster pillows with a long flat piece and two rounds for the ends. They also have three-sided Christmas trees in several designs. Each side is different so you get lots of looks.
Alexa has some charming new stockings including ones with angel or snowman ornaments. Kirk & Bradley has new canvases in the lighthouse series and a new English house canvas. Speaking of lighthouses, Purple Palm has four lovely realistic lighthouse rounds.
Melissa Prince has a whimsical series of six transportation canvases in a retro sixties style. They include a yellow submarine and several kinds of flying machines. Pippin’s newest designs include a canvas of sushi rolls, nine starfish and an adorable “scat cat” canvas
Retromantics is a company specializing in vintage-inspired needlework accessories. It was created by the daughter of Image Stitchery’s founders and her partners. They make wooden needleminders and thread organizers with vintage advertisements on them. These would make very cool gifts for stitching friends.
Ashland Sky has added a new bag to their line. It’s called “Stik Sack” and is 14″x 6″. It’s perfect for holding knitting needles or your accessories and tools. It is available in nine colors.
There’s still lots to cover so come back tomorrow for the end of the Round-up and don’t forget Monday’s special post.
