I still like Mirabilia, but a few have joined Mirabilia since then.
One of them is With thy Needle and Thread. I have recently went to Silver Needle in Tulsa, Oklahoma. If you haven't been there, you MUST go sometime! When you walk in, you are hit with:
WHERE DO I START? Literally! I walked out after paying of course, 4 patterns of With thy Needle and Thread, 1 pattern of Stacy Nash and 1 pattern from Primitive Traditions.
I like With thy Needle and Thread so much, I started a Facebook Group! If you would like to be a member, just look on Facebook and hit join.
Stacy Nash has lately increased my liking of her patterns. I like how she has seasoned themes to her patterns. Like I just bought Sampler of the Season - Winter, I have summer and spring also.
Wiehenburg patterns I have always loved. I have quite a few of them. Currently, I am working on Wiehenburg Coat of Arms, it is drop dead beautiful pattern. Personally, I do not like doing monochromatic patterns so as all my friends who know me........
I change colors! It is not that I don't like the designers choice of colors for their designs, I like to make the pattern my own!
So far Coat of Arms has 3 colors I may keep to those 3 colors or I may add more.
I, Janine Smith and Tickled Pink has created a Facebook group called Stitchers of Wiehenburg Cross Stitch and Needlepoint. Martina is branching into Needlepoint and they are beautiful.
If you would like to be a member , just look it up on facebook and apply.
Another designer that I like is, Gigi patterns! I have her Sampler of Saxony that I have started and I love it. I have also bought her Rose Wreath Sampler.
