First, we've kitted up DebBee's Designs' Glitz & Glamour Morganite, which looks particularly stunning in shades of lavender, violet, lilac, and pink. Sara Leigh is seriously considering stitching the model for our gallery. What's nice about these Glitz & Glamour pieces is their compact size, 5.75" x 5.75" on 18-ct canvas. That means they stitch up quickly. And they can be placed in a boxtop to make a lovely gift for someone special. Take a look. We think you'll agree this is irresistible.
Laura J. Perin's new pattern, Bargello and Violets, is her latest addition to the Sampler Collection. It's a striking piece in the purples of the model stitched on 18-ct mono canvas in Santa Fe Sage, based on the Caron Collection Watercolours #259, Garden Path. She selected several DMC #5 pearl cottons and Rainbow Gallery Splendor silks that coordinate with the Watercolours and added accents with DMC #12 pearl cotton, YLI Ribbon Floss, and gold translucent beads (which come with the pattern). Laura also provided alternative colorways based on Watercolours #058 Mocha Rose (pinks) and #197 Monsoon (blues).
Dawn's been busy adding more fibers to our catalog, and there are still more to come. Sara Leigh is working on adding the pictures to go along with the numbers and names so that you can also browse for that special color to add to your stash.
Since we launched the site on May 1, we've spent a lot of time tweaking things that weren't working quite the way we wanted, especially a problem with one particular version of a very popular browser. As with most things, it's a work in progress. Watch for more improvements over the next several months.
