You guys. Have you heard? Norden Crafts is hosting an online Fall Needlework show, and it starts on Monday!

We are taking advantage of the fun to introduce a little Christmas piece. In case you missed the announcement on Facebook,
here it is--Holly and Gingerbread.
It's stitched on 28ct Lambswool Jobelan and uses all DMC threads.
"Christmas is Holly with Berries of Red
And the Heavenly Fragrance of Warm Gingerbread"

Here's a link to send to your favorite needlework store so they can order it in for you. ;-)

We hope you enjoy!

Announcing charts for April: Loved You Yesterday and Leave an Imprint

Like I said before...we have a case of baby backlog here at CHS.

Blame this cutie patootie.

It feels good to get these designs rolled out of cold storage.

Without further ado, here is one more month's worth of our latest kid-themed charts.

Introducing Leave an Imprint

and Loved You Yesterday.

My stitchers have, grandkids, nieces, and nephews, and you need some equally cute cross-stitch designs to hang on their walls...right??

Hope you enjoy! We are shipping next week so they should be available for shops to order shortly after that.

Is there a theme you need for your sweetie? I'd love to hear from you.
 Our Owl Birth Sampler and Loved You Yesterday both started as requests from stitchers. Email me at if you need something you just can't find. Who knows--we may be able to come up with something inspired by you!

For This Child

Ta-da! Just wanted to share release #1 this month. It is our version of 1 Samuel 1:27, which was an especially meaningful verse for us this year.

If you've been following the blog for a while, you totally know why.

We are calling this one "For This Child" (I know, so creative!) and are including an alphabet and numbers so you can personalize it a way that is meaningful for you. It uses all DMC threads and is stitched on 32ct Natural Linen. The finished design is less than 5" square, so it is just the right size to whip up over a few nights of your favorite movies or as a quick weekend project.

Watch for it to make its way to our distributors over the next few weeks!

Shhhh! Don't tell, but this is a sneak peek!

 I just got back from LouAnn's house (LouAnn is our model stitcher extraordinaire) and am so excited about our next release that I had to share a sneak peek of her lovely handiwork.
