New release weekend

Its a big weekend to put new releases up on the site. Now that our power has been restored after Friday's storms and we've been able to restore some data backups, there's a lot to update.

There is a new limited edition Mirabilia kit distributed by Hoffman - Miss Valentine. These kits have been very popular. The only complaint I have heard about them is that there were a couple of errors packaging the Halloween Fairy kit. However, if you contact Hoffman Distributing, they will correct any problems with the kit very quickly. Here is a pic of the new Valentine fairy.

Mirabilia also released a new mermaid design this past week - South Seas Mermaid. I can't wait to see some WIPs of this mermaid, as (as usual) I don't think the cover photograph does it justice.

The online Needlework Show was last weekend and the new items from the show that we ordered are beginning to arrive. In the next week we will have Dinky Dyes threads and charts up on the site. We are really excited to carry these beautiful threads and designs. We will also begin offering designs by Liz Turner Diehl - her garden designs are gorgeous and her kits are fantastic.

As far as my stitching goes, it wasn't a very productive weekend. Since the leaves finally changed somewhere around Wednesday, and the huge storm came through Friday, it was important to us to go see the few remaining leaves on the trees. I guess I'll just have to make up for that this week!

  1. I got Miss Valentine on Saturday. The colors in her are so pretty. I have to agree with you. The photos just don't do them (or the big Mirabilia pieces justice.
