November Releases

Just wanted to let y'all know we have our November releases ready to go! They should be appearing at your LNS in the next few weeks.
 
Christmas Candy Cane Sampler
 
and
 

Merry Christmas



 
If I am counting correctly,  I think that makes 31 charts we designed and stitched this year, and 29 we did the finish work on.
Whew, right?
We are ready to take a breather for the holidays, so these will be the last of our 2013 releases. We've got some goodies up our sleeves for 2014, along with a few requests. Stay tuned!
A few other announcements:

PILLOWS: We've had a lot of requests for the pillows seen in our September releases--I'm sad to say we are not producing those en masse. The patterns we ship are just for the cross stitch designs. That said, we will be putting up a tutorial on how to make the little rosettes and the bows that we have used to embellish our models. We'll post it here on the blog sometime in the next few months. Hopefully those instructions will make it a little easier for you to reproduce the pillows at home. The embellishments are super easy--you can do this. I promise. If you can't wait, your LNS may also offer classes on finishing techniques; I'd encourage you to check and see!
 

ANOTHER BOO-BOO FIX: Some of our Fall Owl Designs were shipped with a type-o on the back. The DMC Orange was listed  as 3376, which is incorrect. It should actually be 3776. We apologize for the inconvenience!

Last but not least, when we launched earlier this year we released several holiday or winter themed designs. In case you missed them and are looking for some quick  holiday stitches, here they are:

Christmas Owls
 
Baby, it's Cold Outside
 
 
Red Holiday Owl

 Christmas Tidings

and my personal fave,

Joy to the World

Thanks again for the warm welcome you've given Cherry Hill Stitchery this year! We are so excited to be a part of the needlework community and have truly enjoyed hearing your feedback.

August Releases

We are pleased to announce our Country Life series. We dropped the first 2 in the mail and they should be hitting our distributors soon.

The final designs in the series will be released this spring. 
 
Country Life Estate:

Country Life Sheep:
 
Confession: I framed these for the photography, but I have every intention of making them into little banners and then hanging them in a row in my kitchen.

I'm kind of country like that. :) Also, gingham/plaid makes me happy.

The designs in this series are all exactly the same height, so they can be stitched in a row on the same piece of fabric as one big line. If you choose to do that, I would recommend you space the checkered blocks in each new design 4 stitches apart.
 
Enjoy!

July Releases

Hurray! The last of the owls are now available at distribution--just in time for some autumn stitching!
 
Like all the owls, this one has a companion chart to make it a little easier to coordinate your displays around the house.
 
I have to stop and point out that this month marks a special milestone for CHS.  From this point forward our releases will be "new" to the public as well as CHS. The existing product line we brought with us when we launched has made its way to distribution.

 Thank you all once again for the very warm welcome you've given us into the needlework community. We are so glad to be here!

For the Love of June



I just dropped a shipment with our new releases in the mail. One of our June designs is 100 percent inspired by the fact I'd climb into the hills and live in a tent if I could get away with it!
You know that scene on the Sound of Music where Maria is wandering around singing and dancing at the top of a mountain? Yeah. That's so me.

C'mon. With a view like this, you'd be singing "The hills are alive...." too :)

With that in mind, here's my ode to the mountains:


It's called Welcome to Our Neck of the Woods
(I know the title is a stretch, but I'll run with it ;))

The other June release is our Willow House Alphabet.

I love the itty bitty little willow trees! And look, it has some itty bitty hills too :).

One last thing...I wanted to remind you that we made it a little easier to share some Cherry Hill Stitchery love on Pinterest. Click here to go straight to our page.

Enjoy!

Now Available at Norden Crafts--and a Fun Giveaway!

We are happy to announce that Norden Crafts is now distributing CHS charts. They're in stock and ready to ship:

http://nordencrafts.com/C-1292/Cherry-Hill-Stitchery.aspx

Yay!

Norden is doing a promotion on Facebook right now and we're super excited to be participating in that as well. Keep a close eye on their Facebook page for a chance to win an autographed copy of
our Salt Box Neighborhood design.



(Let me be helpful. Click here to go straight to the Norden Craft Facebook page. ;))

Here's how the promotion works: When Norden announces the autographed chart contest for CHS, you need to"like" the picture of our chart on their page and then "share" it on your timeline.
That's it!   You'll have to wait and watch for the contest announcement. They currently have a few pictures of our charts up, but one is just to let you know they are carrying our line, and another is a picture for the Friday release. (We'd love for you to "like" and "share" those too, but doing so won't give you a chance to win an autographed chart). Many designers are participating in the giveaway, so I'm not sure when it will be Cherry Hill Stitchery's turn to be featured. Just remember to keep an eye on the Norden Craft Facebook page for the Cherry Hill Stitchery autographed chart contest.

Good luck!

May Releases

I can't decide if it's summer or winter!  We just got back from a trip out-of-state, where we found ourselves driving through this snowstorm...


...and then through this heat wave.


In the same day!

Insanity.

Eye candy for sure, but still insanity.

In honor of the craziest spring I can remember, we're releasing a bunch of snowy, wintery Christmas designs... in May.

Remember our sweet little Christmas Owls from last month?
 
They are being joined this month by their companion chart--Baby, It's Cold Outside.

Although we are still continuing to roll out our existing product line to our distributors, we thought it would be fun to throw in a few new charts as well.
 
Here they are:
 
 Red Holiday Owl
 
 
 
and Christmas Tidings
 
 
They were designed using matching colors to make displaying them together a little easier.
 
I think my personal favorite of the May releases is Joy to the World.
 
A snowman, some snowflakes, a Christmas tree, and rich holiday colors. Be still my heart.
 
We're also sending one non-winter, non-Christmas design off for release. It's from our bright, colorful, summery Sweet Tweets line. This one is called Cherish the Small Things.
Enjoy!

March and April 2013 Releases

We are in the process of rolling out a few waves of our existing designs to shops and distributors. Next month we're going to mix in a few newbies along with our existing line to keep things exciting, but for now--here's what is currently making it's way to a Needlework shop near you!

First up--our single owl series. Each owl chart has a partner to make decorating and displaying a little easier for you.

Blue Owl on Branch

 
goes with
 
Follow Your Star
 
 
 
Pink Owl on Branch
 
goes with

Love You to the Moon
 
We've also sent off the first of a folk art line.
 
Salt Box Neighborhood
 
The Simple Life
 
and our fanciful
 
Willow Tree Alphabet.
 
 
Also sent off to distribution is the first of our Sweet Tweets-- this one is called

The Best Things in Life
 
Last but not least, we've got a few more owls floating around!
 
A little holiday fun with our
 
Christmas Owls

(because really...with needlework, isn't it Christmas all year? :))
 
these cute little snowbirds do have a partner chart, but it won't be rolling out to distribution until next month. Stay tuned! There will be a lot of wintery holiday designs coming with it!
 
 
 

 Sweetheart Owls

and

 Sweetheart

Happy Stitching!
