New Releases for Nashville Needlework Market ~

In just one week we will be heading to the Nashville Needlework Market. I have been busy getting new things ready to show. Here is a round up of what will be available.

I am releasing two new charts in the "Colorful Quaker Series". To join the Quaker Autumn and Quaker Spring I am releasing Patriotic Quaker and Summer Quaker.

Patriotic Quaker is stitched on 30 ct. Weeks Dye Works Straw linen. Stitched with Weeks Dye Works Oak, Lancaster Red and Navy.

Summer Quaker is stitched on Weeks Dye Works Light Khaki linen and stitched with Sampler a Threads: Sweet Pea, Highland Heather, Liberty, Lexington Green and Roasted Marshmallow
It's time to share another new release! This is Fairy Garden Needle Book. I stitched it on 30 ct. Angel Hair linen from Weeks Dye Works. I used Silk 'N Colors threads from The Thread Gatherer: Gartenfarn SNC 195, Fairy Quilt Cottage SNC 117, and Mayfair SNC 1056. (There is a DMC conversion included 371, 156, and 3722) the pattern includes finishing instructions.
 I'm so excited to share the first of a new series with you. This is January. The first in the Floral Postcard Series. I will have this chart along with February and March at the Nashville Market. The rest will be released monthly through the rest of the year.

They are all stitched on Weeks Dye Works Cappuccino 30 ct. Linen. January uses these Weeks Dye Works threads: Sage, Dove, Kudzu, Busy Lizzie, and Romance.


And here is a peek at February - Floral Postcard. The stitch count for all of these is 79 wide by 55 high. The threads are Weeks Dye Works Sage, Dove, Ivy, Dahlia, Buttercup, Taffeta, and Juniper.

And the threads for March are Weeks Dye Works: Sage, Dove, Squash, Saffron, Dried Sage and Pecan

These next two are my Nashville Exclusive Releases. They will be made available for general release in a couple of months.  The stitch count is 89 wide by 53 high. I have stitched it on the beautiful Abecedarian Linen from R and R Reproductions. The threads for Bluebird Sampler are Sampler Threads: Old Purple Paint, Porabella, Mountain Mist, Old Red Paint, Crystal Lake, Freedom and Roasted Marshmallow.  Blackbird Sampler uses Sampler Threads: Cherry Bark, Picnic Basket, Endive, Mustard Seed and Espresso Bean. 

I am also designing a Compilation Bird Sampler. It will give directions to combine all 5 or 6 Bird Samplers into one that includes extra rows of text. Watch here on my blog for the direction sheet and photos.
