Limited Editions are ready for April!

The Limited Editions and the Primitive Limited Editions are ready for April.....with the help of my 3 trusty elves. They helped me by carding the floss early so I can box the sets. I will be very busy the first week of April as I have stitching friends coming to stay with me. I will still send the invoices out on the 1st for all three clubs as usual. I thought you might like to take a peek at the new colors!

For me it is always a hard decision to pick 6 of the 12 colors for those of you who only get half the each set each month. I try to split the colors into two equal groups. Here they are for April shipments:

The Limited Editions:

For those of you who get 6 skeins you get the 6 on the right. Others will get this full set.

If you belong to the Primitive Limited Editions Club, here are the April colors:

For those of you who get 6 skeins you get the 6 on the left. Others will get this full set. Once again, these colors are softer and more muted than they look on my monitor. You won't be disappointed I promise.

I hope you liked the preview. I know there are a few of you who like to see the colors before you select them. I do sell the extra boxed sets in my ebay store for $27.99 each. You don't get the club price of one free skein but you can pick up the sets you want or previous months if you missed any. I will list some of these new sets today.

Thanks for stopping by!

Adding DMC conversions to all Limited Edition colors

Although it takes a lot more time to match colors......I am adding the DMC conversions to all of the Limited Edition colors  (starting next month) and the Primitive Limited Edition colors for the clubs. There will be times when a color is so variegated that I cannot match it....but for the most part, I will be able to give you the conversions. You can then cross reference to other companies using the DMC color.
I know this helps a lot of stitchers who need the conversion. I have always just selected colors I want for a design and don't go by names or numbers but I though this added work would pay off if it helps some of you. These will all be available from me direct, through the clubs and listed in my ebay store. I list the extra boxes of Limited and Primitive Limited Editions there. You don't get the club price with the free skein but for those of you who only want to buy some here and there, they are available.

I will start adding  these conversions to my new flowers sets too.
I added them to My Mother's Flower Garden I just recently finished and I am working on a set of Red Roses next week and I will add them there too. And I have a mountain of floss to dye this spring and lots of new sets will be coming soon. I love the flower sets.....I guess they are my favorite. It seems like you can use those colors in so many designs, especially samplers.
Stay tuned for more flower sets coming soon.

We are still adding machinery to the work shop. So many saws, routers, jigs, dovetail machines, planer, jointer, etc. We will start cutting and working with the first designs for the sewing boxes later this month. We are building a security wall in the building....you can never be too safe with your investment. After we get all these things done we will be back to making picture frames and the new sewing boxes. There is always so much to do around here!

Spring.......lots of flowers and flowering trees all over our yard.  We didn't have much winter......so disappointing. But I will let these beautiful spring flowers inspire me with their brilliant colors in my flower boxes.

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Flowers Collection give-away, enter now!

Lets keep on a roll here with the give-aways. I just dyed some new Spring Flowers and I need to give some away!
A nice color range from Narcissus Paper Whites, Favorite Peony (white with a hint of pink) Pink Blossoms, Lavender Sachet, Mother's Forget Me Nots, a couple of beautiful medium greens for leaves (Long Stem Rose and Garden Olive) Classic Red Rose, Holland Tulips, Nasturtium, etc. A $27.99 value. The first 20 boxes sold will also receive a free skein of Blue Wildflowers and I will include that skein in the give-away. Email with orders. nbelgian@aol.com

 
 
These shades are lighter and prettier in person.....I think I need a different camera. You will love these spring colors.
These have the closest DMC conversion I could match on each label. Occasionally I can't match a DMC color, especially if there is lots of variegation and more than one color.
