A mid month new colour

I know I don't normally release things in the middle of the month, but I have something newish that I didn't want to hold onto until March.  So meet Daybreak.  If the names familiar it's because there is a fabric in the gradients range on the site called Daybreak Gradients.  Daybreak is the more normal hand dyed style of those colours.  I was asked to do a custom dyed piece for Nene Thomas Daybreak from HAED, and I was so pleased with how it turned out I had to release it.  The picture is just the section that would fit on the scanner.

Gift Vouchers!

I hope everyone is having a good week.  I have a couple of small updates today.  The first is I have added gift vouchers to the website.  They're available in assorted values or you can customise them.  If purchasing them on their own please do it via email so that you don't end up getting charged p&p.  You can find them here.

My other update for today is a WiP picture from Cathy, it is her updated picture of HAEDs Terra Fairy Sprite (Brigid Ashwood).  It's being stitched on 18 count aida in Dawnblush.
I've also got 2 completed work pictures from Donna to share.  The first is stitched from some designs by Maria Diaz in Cross Stitcher, the second is a freebie from Helga Mandyl.  Both have been stitched on Strawberry Sorbet in 27 count Linda.  You can find these pictures and more in the Crafty Kitten Galleries linked off the Crafty Kitten homepage.

Pinch Punch....

First of the month, and that means new colours!

I have just updated the website with February's Ltd ed colour.  This is a pretty blend of pinks and violets.  If you're looking for a background fabric for Rachel Anderson's Lavender Moon from HAED this would be perfect (it's the design I had in mind at the time I was dying it!).

I've also released the neutrals range.  These should work really well for designs with a more vintage feeling, or designs which are difficult to background match.  there are two colours available at the moment, but there will over time be more added to the range.

Finally the Crafty Kitten has a few auctions for UK Cross Stitch magazines up on ebay  You can see them here if you're interested.
