With 2010 slipping away in a couple days, I thought it a good time to have one final give-away for the year – and to liven it up a bit, I’ve added a few little dandy things. Of course, there’s an embroidery kit (I promised I’d give away another Trish Burr kit last time I gave one away!), and to top it off, I’ve added a few little needlework accessories to the package:
Don’t you think that needlework accessories are an important part of your hand embroidery endeavors? Golly, I do. Little accessories and tools are a pitfall for me. They make embroidery even more pleasurable, because often they’re not only useful, but beautiful, too! Some day, I’d like to have a gorgeous “etui” to store tools and accessories in. I just love things like that.
But I suppose I’m getting wistfully side-tracked. It’s always safer not to mention accessories to me….
Compliments of Trish Burr, I’m also giving away one of her needlepainting kits:
You might notice that this is just like the kit I gave away at the end of November, so if you didn’t win it then, you have another chance, lucky duck! Now you can follow through with your New Year’s resolution to try needlepainting!
So, today’s give-away includes the needlepainting kit above (which comes with the design preprinted on fabric, all the threads, and instructions), as well as a little collection of needlework accessories from my workbox. All of them are made by Kelmscott Designs – there’s a peacock magnetic needleminder, a butterfly threadwinder, two large thread rings, a 6-slot thread keep, a small thread ring, and three little heart-shaped thread rings.
The thread keeps, rings, and winder are all made from mother-of-pearl, and they are very pretty additions to the hand embroiderer’s workbox.
