Praiseworthy Stitches, Primitive Traditions, Rosewood Manor, S.P. Ink, Sam Sarah Design Studio

Praiseworthy Stitches
Arguably the most exciting release from Praiseworthy Stitches is A Petit Sampling Etui. This limited edition project was a collaborative effort between Cherished Stitches, Praiseworthy Stitches, The Stitching Parlor and With My Needle. Each outer panel of the etui is a small sampler. These samplers can be assembled into an etui, or they can be stitched and framed individually or together on a single piece of linen. How neat!

In additon to the etui, there are four other new designs from Praiseworthy Stitches. Simple Gifts - Hope is the second of four Quaker-inspired designs. Temptation is the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. A Bunny Garden Needleroll is a limited edition kit that includes a needleroll, pincushion, scissor weight, stitch counter and carrot carrying case. The smallest design is Snow Bunnies, which comes with its own frame.

Primitive Traditions
I am just tickled when I see a cross stitch project that I've never seen before. This is the case with Abigail Colby's Work Basket by Primitive Traditions. Included in this chart pack is a group of three designs that form the top, the basket fob and the interior cartouche. There is also a chart pack of six accessories that go along with the work basket - a 3" x 3" Measure, needle pocket, pin log, thread pocket, scissors pocket and biscornu scissors fob. As well, there is an extract sampler called A Cheerful Mind that is a third design element associated with the work basket.

Primitive Traditions has also released two new samplers. Jane Baxter is a reproduction sampler from 1824. With Joy We Greet You is a lovely reproduction of a charming motto that was fished out of a remote corner of an antique mall.
