Things for sale

This page will be where I list everything that I want to sell. If anyone wants anything, let me know – leave a comment and keep an eye on your spam – my email has blue in the title which I think makes the spam filters think its junk.

Oh, and I must say, if you ask me to dye something and it doesn’t turn out the colour you expect, that is okay. I will try again. Its a learning process.

I am learning to dye my own fabric, and so I don’t end up with surplus on hand (which is what WILL happen if I am not careful) I thought I would start dyeing these colours as requested. They are trials and are at cost price (fabric, water and dye – no cost for labour at present).

Linen $25Au per fat quarter (50cmx70cm or 18”by 27”) plus P&H

Aida or evenweave (100% Austrian Cotton evenweave) $17Au per fat quarter plus P&H

I use PayPal for all my transactions, and if you prefer can put them up through eBay if you want the eBay guarantee.

Custom cuts, fat halves, fat 8ths and fat 16ths are all available.

Custom colours are available.

Only have 32ct on hand at present for both evenweave and linen, but will order any count as required, and have 14ct Aida. If I have to order in it takes about 5-7 working days to arrive, and then a few days to dye and send out.

    Hi There – I’m scouring the web to try and find two of the Semco Cross Stitch Advent Calendar kits. I’ve made two, one each for my boys but would love to make another two for my baby Nephews. You don’t by any chance have any that you don’t want do you? I Did see one in a photo but would assume that you’ve made it up for a small person in your life!

    Many thanks

      I have stitched it, but if you want the pattern I am happy to send it to you, and the leftover floss. The only thing you would have to get is some aida and a calico sack. Or you could buy the anchor threads needed…

    Many thanks – I have a copy of the pattern, just wanted the kits for ease and speed!

    I would like to buy some of the fabric from Lori that you do not wish or cannot use. Please let me know ASAP. I prefer even weave (Jobelin) 32 count. Would you consider doing horizons?

    PS: I miss her special horizons that I have done 4 rainbow row designs on.

    I miss Lori tremendously. She was so good at her art! All of her special orders were perfect.
