       This section of our site is devoted to shop models.  We add approximately 4 to 6 new models every other month to our ever growing collection. These are the current New Shop Models that we have added in our shop.  We do not always stitch designs which are new, just whatever strikes our fancy.  Because a pattern is old doesn't make it any less attractive.  If the pattern is still available, after stitching, we then feature it as a New Shop Model on our walls. We have had a few customers who were generous with letting us display there finished work in our shop.  Some of these designs will be show cased as well.

If you like the way our shop models look, we now have added a feature that you can purchase the pattern or we will offer as a kit including pattern, fabric, and floss just like our model.  Additional options exist that will allow you to purchase just the pattern, just the floss, or just the fabric. You are ONLY purchasing the materials to make the design, not our finished model.

Hope you like our selections.

SHOP MODEL-A CHURCHYARD CHRISTMAS
Some of you probably wondered why I have not posted a new shop model for some time. Well here is the answer. I started this wonderful design on January 2nd, and finished stitching around the end of February. There was so much detail, as you can see, that I really enjoyed the challenge. I have stitched other Christmas scenes from Praiseworthy Stitches, and I think this one is my favorite so far. I used all the recommended floss and fabric.

When I stitched using WDW snowflake, I did 1/2 x's and then crossed them rather than doing each x separately. It gave the white a softer appearance and since snowflake has touches of pink and blue, which will show if you do each x individually. I wanted to give the snow a softer appearance, not a mismarked snow. I have used this method on another of the Praiseworthy designs, and loved the look it attained. Hope you all like this offering - it was fun. I did frame in a custom cherry with an antique gold lip

SHOP MODEL-SNOW AND ICE
This new design from Little House Needleworks reminds me of my childhood when you could ice skate on a frozen lake so I had to stitch for a shop model - I did change the fabric to 28 Ct. Natural with Silver from Fabric Flair to give it a look of tiny falling snow flakes - other than that, I used all recommended flosses and framed in a premade from from Mill Hill that had snow covered trees and snow at the bottom

SHOP MODEL-WINTER FEEDING
I just love Diana Graebner Amish designs. They are easy to stitch and the only thing that I stitch on aida. When I was looking for a design for Christmas, yet for still Winter, this little design called my name. It turned out so cute with the little girl feeding geese, and if you notice, there are decorated pine trees in the background for Christmas. I used 18 Ct. Opalescent Aida and DMC floss. The frame is a 6x6 plain black.

SHOP MODEL-THE GOOD TIDIINGS
This design from The Drawn Thread arrived in our shop, and I knew that it would become a shop model. I love the simple, yet elegant look of the design. Nothing like saying "Merry Christmas: and having a few birds wearing Santa hats perched on a snow covered branch and little flakes accenting. I used on 28 Ct. Tumbleweed Linen rather than the 32 Ct. noted on the pattern, but did use the recommended silk floss. I loved how the shading turned out on the lettering.The frame I used is a black frame with dark green overlayed to bring out the words.

SHOP MODEL-GINGERBREAD VILLAGE
When I was hunting for some fast designs to stitch for Christmas ( I had a large project that I was going to work on, and knew it would take long), I decided to combine five design in the Gingerbread Village series from Country Cottage Needlework. I did not have to add any rows, just attached them in a row. I had wanted a large house in the middle, and on each side one facing, then I decided to just all the patterns with snow on the ends. I did not add buttons - just stitched with the recommended flosses. I decided to use the 32 Ct. Raw with White Dots Belfast and did not stitch any snowflakes. The frame is a custom brown to bring out the gingerbread. It was fun and is one of my favorites

Note patterns used were CCNGV07, 04, 03, 05, and 02

SHOP MODEL-GOODIE GUMDROP TREE
As I always state, when I pick design to stitch for a shop model, they are not always new. This design from Praiseworthy Stitches was in my stash for some time, and when I came across it in December, I added it to my list of designs to stitch for Christmas. I had a gumdrop tree when I was young, and it brought back memories - so I just had to stitch. I used all the recommended floss and beads, but stitched on 28 Ct RawGold Cashel Linen to give it more sparkle. The frame is a custom light fern green that matched the colors in the design

SHOP MODEL-GINGERBEAD STREET
When this design from Little House Needlework arrived in our shop, I knew we had a premade frame that would work - so I just had to stitch for a model. I used 32 Ct. Amber Linen and the recommended flosses. The frame is from Mill Hill and has a 5.75x5.75 opening.

Watch in the next few weeks for the rest of my holiday shop model additions. I will post as soon as they are framed

SHOP MODEL-LIGHTHOUSE CUSHION
Since I completed two other pillow kits by Vervaco, I decided that I wanted to do more. So - I looked through their offerings and found this lighthouse for a Summer pillow. I intend to do a mate next Summer - nothing hard- this is a kit that includes 4.5 painted canvas and you cross stitch with poly yarn. These are great kits to take on a trip since you do not need to look at a pattern, just follow the painted colors. Our finished made this into a pillow - backed in blue and corded with a white braid

SHOP MODEL-SANTA IN PLAID HAT PiILLOW
As I said before, I love these pillow kits, and when I visit my daughter who lives over an hour away, I usually take one and stitch in the car. I started this kit when I completed the lighthouse in late August, early September. I chose a polka dot red backing, and corded with a red braid. I also picked up enough supplies to do another pillow - the reindeer pillow that matches, for next year. Our finisher made the 16" x 16" pillow - again there is nothing hard about doing cross stitches on 4.5 Ct. canvas. Gives you instant gratification and is really very easy to see and stitch.

SHOP MODEL-MINI BLOCK CHRISTMAS-SILVER
Since I have so many patterns to look at daily, I sometimes pick older designs to stitch for a shop model that I liked, just never had time to add to my collection - this design from Hinzeit is one of those. It was easy to stitch, I used Sampler flosse rather than DMC - Garnet for the red, and Forest Green for the green, and stitched on 28 Ct. Opalescent Cashel Linen. The frame is a custom cherry

SHOP MODEL-CANDY CANE OF CHRISTMAS ZIPPER
As many of you know, I just LOVE the Bent Creek Zipper kits. They are presorted, done on 18 Ct. Linen, and very easy to stitch. When this new kit arrived, I immediately snagged one and used it as my car project. Well, I liked it so much, and only stitched on it one day in the car, I just added to my collection and finished it at home - I chose a custom green frame to bring out the border

SHOP MODEL-CHRISTMAS TANGLE
Since we have an extensive cat display in our shop, and found that some patterns are no longer available - hense, we cannot use the model. So I took a look at the Heritage Crafts cats, and found this cutie for Christmas. I used White 32 Ct. Jobelan so that it would fit into the premade Mill Hill 6"x6" frame that I used.

There is a matching pattern where the kitty is on the tree top, so you might see that pattern stitched sometime in the future - depends when the spirit moves me

SHOP MODEL-POINSETTIA PLACE SAMPLER
I love The Victoria Sampler patterns, and again, I have to be in the mood. They are not hard, but a lot of floss changes, and sometimes different stitches. When this pattern arrived in our Shop, I love the poinsettia plant at the top, and house scene at the bottom - so when I was looking for some fast projects, I chose this one. I did not fit it hard, and loved the finished look - hope you do too. The frame is a customer red with a gold lip

By the way, I had more then enough floss left over from the Embellishment pack - they do not skimp

SHOP MODEL-HAPPY THANKSGIVING
I know I must sound like a broken record, but I do look at older designs when picking what I want to stitch - this design from Shepherd's Bush is very old, but a lovely addition for those who love Thanksgiving. I stitched it on 20 Ct. Mocha Linen from Weeks Dye Works as the recommended color of fabric is no longer available. I used the recommended flosses with the exception of the Thread Gather silks which I substituted with Weeks Hand Dyed Pearl Cotton. The frame is wide antique browm with a little gold around the edge.

Again, this stitched up quickly since using pearl cotton and going over 2 fabric threads on a large count of linen, does go fast.

SHOP MODEL-PUMPKIN COTTAGE SAMPLER
When I was going through designs to stitch for Autumn, I found this house from The Victoria Sampler that called my name. I had stitched their Beach Cottage last year, and decided to stitch this one. I loved the cottage and the array of pumpkins, witch, and gardener raking the leaves - again I did not think it was hard, just a lot of color changes and a few stitches like french knot and lazy daisy. Since Thea give good diagrams, they are easy to follow for those of you who never tried them. I used a custom browm frame - nothing special, so that the colors in the design would be the focal point.

SHOP MODEL-THE LITTLES: TOM TURKEY

SHOP MODEL-PUMPKIN COTTAGE
Since I stitched a few models for Halloween, I looked for a few designs that would be good for Autumn, not a specific holiday. I came across this design from Country Cottage Needework that fits the bill - I used 28 Ct. Cafe Mocha Linen and the recommended flosses. The frame was a custom dark green

I just love doing the word designs by Ursula Michael and Imaginating - this one features just two maple leaves - so rather than stitch on white, I used 28 Ct. Ivory Jobelan to give it a more Autumn look. DMC floss was used for all the stitching, and I framed in a custom brown frame

SHOP MODEL-BEWITCHING PIXIE - MIERVA
Last year I really enjoyed stitching Electra, another Bewitching Pixie in the series by Nora Corbett.

I used all recommended flosses and beads - the frame I used is Black

I loved this design for some time, and since I stitched Niagara Falls some time ago, felt it was time for a new wall model from the International series by Heritage Crafts. I used 28 Ct.

If you ever visited this historic site - you will love this lovely design. It is very realistic.

SHOP MODEL-SUMMER
When I was finishing up my Summer stitching, I had this design in picked out, but did not like the fabric that was recommended by the designer. So after a little thought, I decided to stitch on 28 Ct. Summer Sky Jobelan. Since some letters are white, I back stitched around those, and that was the only change I made. The frame is a custom blue with a brushed edge which brings out the blues.

SHOP MODEL-LIGHTHOUSE SAMPLER
This Summer when I had an opportunity to visit the local craft shops, and of course, Kohl's, I found they has a nice array of premade frame with beach themes - this is one I puchased and then I looked through some of the patterns in the shop, and found the Lighthouse Sampler that is comprised of nine small lighthouse designs - I chose the one with the black and white stripes and sailboats because of the teal at the bottom of the frame - I did stitch on 28 Ct. Star Sapphire Linen

SHOP MODEL-A DAY AT THE BEACH KIT
Again I had this premade frame since last year and wanted to find something to fit the opening. Even though it was a 4" x 4" opening according to the slip in the frame, it was not. The opening was 3.75" x 3.75 - so I came across this kit from The Sweetheart tree and stitched only the center - just the sandcastle, fish, and center border. It fit just fine - since this is a kit, I used the fabric and floss that was in the kit as well as the beads. You too can find a frame like mine when your are shopping, always take a look in the craft stores and department during the seasons. Their inventory changes usually sells out if the frames are good - so always think ahead. You will see more models that I framed in premade frames that I found at Kohl's. If you wait for their sales, they are a keeper!

SHOP MODEL-BEACH RULES
I also found this frame at Kohls, and for the life of me could not anything to fit the opening, that is until I came across this design from The Sweetheart Tree.

SHOP MODEL-THE SEA
I fell in love with this design from Fireside Originals when it was released. I just love to snorkle and this design reminded me of the Caribbean and the wonderful fish and coral that you see under the sea. The x-tra added bonus was the verse. I stitched the design on 28 Ct. Crystal Tempest from Picture this Plus using the recommended flosses. When my framer came into the shop with new frames, I felt this rustic turquoise was a good fit - hope you like it as much as I do.

We are also offering a frame and mounting kit if anyone is interested for the do-it-yourselfer. Includes the frame that I used, padding, mounting board, push pins, a saw tooth hanger, and instructions. All you need to do is mount your stitching and everything is included for hanging on the wall.

SHOP MODEL-LAND THAT I LOVE
As you can see, I don't always do new designs for shop models. This pattern from Lizzie Kate has been out for sometime and again I found this premade frame on one of my shopping trips and found I could make it fit - the opening was a little smaller than a 3" x 5" so I adjusted the fabric to 32 Ct. and it fit just fine. The charm that was used on the original design has been discontinued, so I use the heart flag button. Nothing hard - stitched on 32 Ct. Natural Belfast Linen using the recommended hand-dyed flosses

SHOP MODEL-TO THE BEACH - FLOCK TOGETHER

SHOP MODEL-TO THE BEACH - ADJUST YOUR SAILS
This is another design from the To The Beach series by Hands on Design - again I loved the finished size and used the recommended fabric and flosses - so I mounted in a pre-made frame that I purchased from AC Moore.

SHOP MODEL-BUNNNIES ON THE BEACH
I just love those long ear bunnies, and this design is from Madam Chantilly I found when I was looking for some beach designs to stitch as models. I tried to find a fabric that would really compliment, rather than using the recommended natural linen, and came up with 28 Ct. Sea, Sand, & Sky Linen from Fabric Flair. I used the recommended DMC floss and custom framed. This fabric is also available in 14 Ct. Aida for those who do not like linen. Isn't it cute! Makes me want to dip my foot in the ocean.

Any time I use a custom frame, if anyone is interested, we do offer frame kits in the size we used that includes the frame, mounting board, padding, saw tooth hanger, and instructions for a do-it-yourself

SHOP MODEL-MEMORIAL PARK
I just love Praiseworthy Designs especially their scenes. This is their latest offering and I just had to stitch it. I used 32 Ct. Limestone Lugana which is a light green (the designers recommend stitching on a light green as their model was done on a R & R fabric that is no longer available). I did not change a thing, only added a pole to one of the girls that is sitting on the fence as it was missed, and did the poles in brown, instead of the black color that was noted on the chart. When I looked at the photo and saw that the poles where brown, I did contact the designer and was told that their model has black poles. However, from my experience, banner poles are brown, not black. Hense - mine are brown. I just love the finished look. The buttons add the finishing touch, and our model was framed in a custom Navy frame to bring out the blues. I'm sure if you are a baseball lover, then you will enjoy this design. As they say - Play Ball!!

SHOP MODEL-STARS & STRIPES

SHOP MODEL-SPRING
As many of you might know, I like the Cricket Collection word patterns. When I was filing away patterns, I came across this design for Spring, but hesitated because I did not like the fabric color the designer used. So, I pull the floss colors and found Raspberry Lite Jobelan. It gives the design a Spring look. I framed in a soft brown frame

SHOP MODEL-COTTAGE GARDEN
Country Cottage Needleworks is one of my favorite designers and this was a kit that they made with Classic Colorworks. I chose White Jobelan instead of the recommended fabric as I wanted a crisp look. The frame is a pre-made green frame
