Six New Chartpacks

October 2014 chartpacks

© Joan A. Elliott

I’m happy to introduce  six new chart packs, including my brand new Canadian Beauty. All chart packs are $12 with the exception of the Victorian Christmas Library which is priced at $18. I will be loading these onto my Order Chartpacks page shortly. Fingers crossed, I expect these back from the printer on October 6th and will be able to ship once the packs are assembled. I am also shipping to my online outlets next week so you can order directly from these wonderful stores including Stitch It Central in Canada, Polstitches Designs in the UK, Casa Cenina in Italy, 123 Stitch here in the US.

I am away this week  for a much needed  break while the charts are being printed. I hope to come back with renewed creativity and more new ideas for designs.

A Special Treat for You from DMC!

Stardust Fairy

Throughout my many years of designing, being able to use all the delicious threads and fabrics that DMC and Charles Craft have to offer has not only given me the opportunity to meet and work with the wonderful people there but has helped make all these years of designing a pleasure. Our latest collaboration, the ‘Stardust Fairy’ was a joy to work on. I love the way the sparkling Stardust fabric helps set off the magical theme of the design and DMC’s glimmering metallic and luxurious satin threads add just the right touch. I am so pleased that DMC is offering this design as a special free download to everyone.

A Sneak Peak for Canada

Just a little sneak peak at the chart I am creating for my Canadian visit. She is now ready to pick colors and then on to the computer. I am having fun!

It’s Been A While…

Although I have not posted much lately, I finally have something new to show you. So here we are and it is almost  mid-June! Time flies way too quickly for me. Things have been busy here with design work, chartpack sales, my wonderful niece Christina graduating from college and then helping her find an apartment (not an easy task in New York, LOL!).

Now that summer is almost here I am very happy to show you what will be coming in the September issue #193 0f Cross Stitch Crazy magazine, on sale July 10th in the UK and digitally, and a few weeks after that in other areas.

Mermaid

Under the Sea

Stitched on 28 count hand dyed ‘big bang’ Jobelan from Polstitches Designs, my newest mermaid floats in the soft colors of the sea. Strands of precious pearls drape gracefully around her  as she shimmers in the shadows and light of her underwater world. As always, I have used lots of beautiful Kreinik #4 braid to capture the light and Mill Hill beads to add depth and dimension. I loved designing her for a midsummer treat. I hope you will all enjoy the stitching!

One last note. I know that summer is a good time to begin a bit of holiday stitching so I will be posting some new chartpacks soon to give everyone an early start.. and yes, that will include a new stocking design. Happy June everyone!

JE123 1920’s Flapper Chartpack Alert!

To all of you that may have recently purchased the  Black & White chart pack JE123 1920’s Flapper, it seems that some of the black & white chart packs have gone out with the wrong key. Below you will find the corrected key. Please check it against the chart you have purchased to make sure you have the same symbols in the key as appear in the chart. I am posting the updated key below for you to print and use should the one in your package not match the symbols on your chart. This correction does not pertain to the color chart packs or any of the charts in the magazines.

JE123

Corrected key for black & white chart pack only.
