New Releases From St. Charles

Hi All,
I am home exhausted, but we had a wonderful time at the show!! It is always fun to see what everyone has come up with between shows. Seeing the models makes all the difference. I promised to post the pictures of the new items...so here goes:

Halloween Rules is done both as a ruler and a basket band. It's stitched on 40 count R&R Garden State Java with Weeks Dye Works Threads. The instructions for finishing are included in the chart.

Christmas Elegance is done in both a simple Cross Stitch chart and as Asissi work (where the background is stitched instead of the actual pattern). This changes the look of the finished work. The piece is stitched on 40 count River Willow by Lakeside Linens and 35 count Beige by Weeks Dye Works using Crescent C0lours Silks.

ABC 123 is designed with the quilter/cross stitcher in mind. It is stitched on 30 count Tin Roof by Weeks Dye Works using Gentle Arts Simply Wool. It is mounted on Weeks Dye Works Houndstooth Wool Fabric with the Blanket Stitch. It was fun to stitch.

Winter is Past is stitched on 36 Count Sand Dune by Lakeside Linens Silks using Au Ver A Soie. The lovely bright colors add to the charm.

Trade Show Special: In The Garden. This piece was only offered at the show, so you will find this kit at shops that attended the market. Although this will again be offered at the Nashville Market in 2010, you will probably need to look around to find a needlework shop that carries this cute box. It comes as a complete kit. It is stitched on 40 Count Vintage Butter Cream from Lakeside Linens.

I hope you like the new releases and will ask your shop to carry Milady's Needle Designs.
Till next time...may your stitching bring you many rewards. Gloria
