Firstly thank you for the response to my request for vintage sources, I now have a plethora of subject matter to work from and am busy as a bee creating projects. I hope to have some kits ready for you by the end of this month in time for Christmas. The Colour scheme booklet is in progress – we are getting printing quotes and trying different layouts and again hopefully this will be released before Christmas. It occurred to me that most people don’t purchase embroidery items at Christmas time – I wonder why this is? Do you think its because we mainly order for ourselves during the year so at Christmas time we revert to buying gifts of the traditional kind for our loved ones, i.e. clothing, tools, smellies etc?
The Orange Breasted Sunbird is now available as a kit and digital download – it can be purchased on the Etsy shop here. I have moved my main shop across to Etsy as I like the layout and the customer service they offer so if you need anything thats the place to go. I have changed the layout of my kit instructions which now include a stitch diagram which tells you which colours are used for each area – I hope you find it helpful and would be interested to get your feedback.
I was thrilled to hear from Mary Corbet that my book Colour Confidence For Embroidery had been voted the#1 most popular book on Needle ‘n Thread this year, really made my day! You can read about it here. Click on the image to go to online store.
Meantime wherever you are have a wonderful week and many happy stitching hours. Trish
