Gloriana has announced their newest colors in silks: Thistle Orange, Thistle Purple, Jersey Shore and Jubie’s Pink. There are also three new colors in Florimell, her hand-dyed Au Ver a Soie: Jubie’s Pink, Holiday Green, and Emerald Green.
Dinky Dyes has announced lots of new threads as well. There are 6 new silks: 187 Halloween, 188 Toni’s Texas T, 189 Evergreen, 190 Quicksilver, 191
Stringy Bark and 192 Mocha Mauve. There are also 5 new ribbons both 4mm and 7mm: 67 Jacob’s Ladder, 118 Ironbark, 187 Halloween, 190 Quicksilver and 192
Mocha Mauve. Finally, there are four new silk perles in three different sizes: 174 Persian Jade, 175 Dragon Fruit, 182 Dusty Rose and 183 Blue Ice.
Rainbow Gallery has also brought out a new thread – a thinner size of Silk Lamé. There are 26 colors out. Color numbers match those of Silk Lamé but the prefix is SP instead of SL.
I asked how it differs from HiLights. It’s slightly thicker with a three-strand braid which makes for a stronger thread. It’s meant for light stitching on 18 mesh, blackwork, or cross stitch. I’m excited to try it.
If you are looking for some great canvases. Kelly Clark has pages of the new canvases she brought out this summer. There’s lots to delight you here including some great patriotic canvases.
If you are looking for something fresh in the way of traditional florals, take a look at the new designs from The Collection (seen in a slide show). There are lots of great flowers in vases.
Leigh also has a great new Halloween series out. Called Skulls & Bones, they are on black 18 mesh canvas and feature skulls in colorful hats and accessories all dressed up to go out. They are witty, fun, and not at all your traditional Halloween piece.
Needle Delights has several new chart packs out and Kathy blogs about them (scroll down for the pictures). I got Funky Hearts and Lollipop. I’m thinking about doing Lollipop as a stash buster project to use up more of my huge quantity of Watercolors.
