Passione Ricamo Mystery SAL 2012
Laura’s Part one stitched and beaded as a sneak preview.


Laura has added the following information on the Facebook SAL page:

Mystery Sal
I remind you that registration will close June 30 and that the pattern will never be published, will be only for the participants .. Therefore, those who were still unsure, sign up … pictured below, as an incentive, here is the 1 Step … in all its glory …

By the sounds of this, this design will not ever be released any other way.  So if you like Passione Ricamo designs in general, and you have few spare dollars in your pocket, I recommend you give this one a look in the next five days.

For those interested, the purchase and sign-up page is here.

Look at all those purple beads in the border, no wonder the chart calls for over 2000 of them …..

Laura had this to say on the Passione Ricamo Fairy Mistery SAL 2012 – 2013 Facebook Group:

welcome to everyone!!! and thank you to all of you for the great trust you are showing to me….I’m almost speechless!!!!!!!!!!!

I called this Mystery Sal thinking that we were a small group of mainly Italian girls …. instead …. I’m terrified!!! also because I never thought that someone could enjoy to this SAL, I thought no more than 10-15 people at most … INSTEAD ARE subscribing FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!

In any case, I want to remind to all of you that the subscription ends on the 30 of June 2012, that this special chart now is only for the subscriber, and will become available as paper chart not before the 2014 or more…

Stitchers can choose if stitch it only with DMC floss, or use the original list with DMC, beads and metallic…

The chart is splitted in 12 step, ! step for each month starting from the 1 of July 2012.
each step is about 45 x 73 stitches, and at the start of each step i will show you my stitched part… yes, I will going to stitch it for you winh with you….

My dear firend Dawn, surely will hep you if you need …..
Again thank you to all of you!
hugs and kisses!


I’m getting excited over this one.  I’m pretty sure I have a suitable fabric and all the floss (metallics etc) already in my stash so I’ll be ready to go as soon as my stash as I are reunited.

For those interested, the purchase and signup page is here.

Yep I never finish Stitch-a-longs. But I can’t resist the lure. Especially when it is from one of my favourite designers.

There’s a couple of catches with this one.  You MUST sign up before the SAL starts. 

Sal starts on the 1 July 2012, sign ups close on the 30 June 2012.  So this is definitely a Mystery SAL and you go into it with your eyes closed.  There’s no chance to wait and see what it’s going to look like and then jump in later 🙂

The flip side is that the pattern is €12.00 Euro. (Approximately $15-$16.00 US or Australian).  So if you do like the majority of Passione Ricamo charts and have the money to spare, it’s not that big an investment if it turns out you don’t like it.

But that’s the gamble with Mystery charts 🙂

There is a Facebook Group already in place, the Passione Ricmao Fairy Mistery SAL 2012 – 2013 (yes complete with typo – ooops) but they do have a heap of information already in place and it’s being run by Laura’s model stitcher for this SAL so extra tidbits are forthcoming.

As can be seen above and in the sneak peek on the official sign up page the fairy/goddess will have dark hair and the whole project will be predominantly blues and purples. In the official materials list that you receive when you sign up, the suggested fabric is either a white or an off-white.  However Laura often uses Polstitches fabrics for her models so when prompted, she listed the following Polstitches fabrics as suitable for this SAL:

  • Pearl
  • Delicate Roses
  • Dawn Chorus
  • Moonlight
  • Dusk
  • Summer Breeze
  • Rumbles of Thunder
  •  Taboo
  • Rustic Rhubarb
  • Awakening
  • Angel Dust
  • Snow Queen


There will be 9 cards of Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braids and 2,500  Mill Hill beads (yes over 2000 – the vast majority being “Brilliant Orchid” or purple as I call it) as well as the usual DMC or Venus threads.

So fabrics fabrics …. I’m tossing up between Dawn Chorus and Awkening.  Any thoughts?
