More New Items

Needlepoint Tool Time has lots of new items in their shop Don't miss the stitching night shirt!

BeStitched is offering a new type of bead they call a berry bead.  Elsewhere I've heard them called peanut seed beads.  Whatever the name, they may be perfect for your next piece.

Speaking of beads, almost everyone recommends Fusion Beads.  I'm warning you--hide your credit card before you click on this link!

Janet Perry reviews the Thread Zapper 2 on her blog and gives tips for its use.

Chaparral has new items pictured in their latest newsletter, along with their newest monthly club and a reminder that the Melissa Shirley trunk show will appear on their doorstep soon.

Needle Nicely is working on their limited edition original Christmas ornament design for 2012.

Here is what it looks like finished--elegant!

Pocket Full of Stitches has some fun new Halloween designs on their site, many of which I've not seen before since they are cross stitched.

Fireside now sells overdyed needlepoint canvas and Congress cloth.  There are no photos on their website but I bet if you ask they'll help you pick a color that will be perfect for that new counted project.

Bedecked and Beadazzled has new cat-themed snap trays in house.  They range from fun to gorgeous, something for everyone!  (And dog snap trays are in the second link.)

Needle Delights has released their latest mystery lesson and a new design that mixes tangerine and yellow. Talk about sunshine and summer!

Stitchers Workshop in Arkansas occasionally creates custom boxes for needlework.  Isn't this spectacular?!

Speaking of boxes, here's a new leather tool box that is very nice indeed.

There are new Mag Friend styles of magnets.  My favorite is the conch shell (so Florida!) but you may be into candy corn or flowers more....

Baseball Bargello

If you are a baseball fan, you might want to stitch this Laura Perin free pattern called "At the Ballpark" to celebrate the sport of America. You could even do it in your team colors!  Many thanks to Althea for posting about this and Rainbow Gallery for sponsoring this freebie.
