We hope your summer (or winter) has been as pleasant as ours. Here in Scotland we have been enjoying hosting the Commonwealth Games - also known as the friendly games - which are being held in Glasgow. It looks like most of the athletes have enjoyed the warm reception which hopefully makes up for the not-so-warm temperatures!
At last! We finally have Lanarte's Second Summer Collection with an Eastern Princess, Spanish dancers and lovely flowers. Hopefully this collection was worth waiting for!
Lanarte have already announced a Third Summer Collection (!) with more pretty ladies and colourful flowers. The company is now on its summer break so these kits will not be immediately available but you will be able to see them here just as soon as we can get a hold of them.
Miribilia's latest design is of an elegant lady with butterflies, the legendary Queen Mariposa of Spain. The designer Nora Corbett is one of the most talented and prolific on the scene.
Thank you to everyone who waited patiently for Let's Purr - we hope it gives you lots of pleasure. We have more on order and also more of Let's Cross Stitch. The latest «Let's» is a pretty birth sampler with the words making a rattle shape and is called Let's Love Baby. Worked in only one shade, it could easily be in blue for a boy or pink for a girl.
And we have another lovely lady from John Clayton's Elegance Collection ... Abbi who is wearing a low cut white lace evening gown and - like Vanessa - is reclining on a chaise longue. Some customers have already spotted that they make an attractive pair.
Luca-S have two new Summer kits. Local Colour is a lady among flowers and Precious Moment is a mother and child at the seaside. Both are stitched on the special 18 count Aida with every tenth thread in a different colour to help with the complete stitch coverage of the designs.
This month we are featuring John Clayton'sInternationals and Panoramas series which have built up over the years. Some of these have been discontinued and there are only two Panoramas still on the catalogue so do check if you are collecting those as they won't be coming back.
And finally on the subject of waiting ... we have a quote from humourist Dave Barry: «The Internet is the most important single development in the history of human communication since the invention of call waiting.»
