Chatting about cross-stitch, needlework, knitting, crochet and life

Rock of Ages

An undeniable favorite in Christian hymnals since the late 18th century, Rock of Ages’ comforting message was written by English preacher Augustus Montague Toplady, with music by American composer Thomas Hastings. This hymn was artfully adapted to cross stitch by Kooler Design Studio designers in the 1990’s and is now available as a chart.



It’s time for Christmas… 2018!

Start on next year’s Holiday gifts now! Such a sweet and unexpected Christmas stocking design. Pastels, snowflakes and three vintage style fairies flit about the lovely fir tree. A great heirloom piece for that perfect little girl.



Celebrate Santa

This Santa Sampler is full of reminders of the Christmas Season. Charming little motifs surround Santa in his sleigh as he sails off to delight children with his bag full of gifts.



Merry Christmas, Everyone!

The Merry Christmas greeting gets an Old World meets New World makeover. An old-fashioned Santa holding his bag full of treats is featured in one corner along with a family on a sleigh ride in the opposite corner. What a delightful way to declare the holidays.



Musical Merriment

The music lover in your life will certainly be delighted with these Musical Ornaments. The addition of cute cats and a mouse can charm anyone and makes the ornaments perfect for friends and family.



Windmills Galore!

A classic delft blue scene is reminiscent of Holland and their many windmills and waterways. A lower case alphabet tops this charming design with a larger upper case alphabet below. The Windmill Sampler would look wonderful in a kitchen or breakfast nook.



Reach for the Stars

Astronomers everywhere will appreciate this inspiring design of sun, moon, and constellations in our night skies. Reach for the Stars; Inspire Others; Dream Freely; Seek Truth are the words inside the border. These words speak softly but their effect is dramatic.



A Wreath for the Season

A fruitful wreath bursting with delicious color and flavor of wholesome foods to enrich our lives. A decorative gold bow, stitched bells and a partridge enhance the festive season.



Save the Bees!

Taste the delicious honey from the orange blossoms. Honey bees frolic in this intricate design by Nancy Rossi. Honey bees in a natural beehive or in a wooden hutch. It all tastes delicious.



Painted Ladies

Three Victorian homes with manicured gardens remind us of a scene from Mary Poppins. The beautiful urban homes that are nestled in the big city have the feel of a warm country neighborhood.
