Dale's Big Stuff Up
So excited to open the new Victory rayons - Ironbark, Rusty Warrandyte, Middle Earth and Stonehaven (the latter I have been hanging out for) and then off to stitch them out today only to find I have stuffed up Stonehaven..... instead of sending colour 1989 as part of the 5 colours to create the thread I had written 198o which is not the creamy type of colour you might see in stones but rather the rich autumnal leaves which hang around stones at a certain time of the year. It is a lovely colour all up but not what I wanted and there is no-one to blame but myself. I have sent the numbers again along with other numbers for quite a few re-runs of colours which are low in number but it will be a few weeks before they are ready. I could kick myself......
Above is the offending thread - labelled Stonehaven but it will be mark 1 not for real. Maybe stones with autumn leaves lingering around the fringes. In any other situation I would be delighted with it but not right at this moment...
What this means is that I have lots of thread to sell at an excellent price - like below cost. Normally our variegated threads are $4.90 each but this particular one I am selling for $2 in order to clear them out. So if you are doing an order at all - please do me a mega favour and buy one - it will make my pain so much less. I still can't believe I did it.
This is Ironbark
This is Middle Earth
This is Rusty Warrandyte (the rusty for me, the Warrandyte for Jacinta)
For those hanging in, I have my laptop on my chair in the lounge tonight to finish the newsletter so it will be ready tomorrow. There will be some great newsletter reader specials as always. But before that I am off to cook a chicken curry.
