Well, since it’s Monday, and since it’s Autumn – which makes me Very Happy! – I think it’s a good day for a give-away!
Besides, we haven’t had one of these in a long, long while, have we?
On Friday, we looked up close at this new Blue Peacock embroidery kit from Canevas Folies. Today, thanks to Laurence at Canevas Folies (for the design kit) and Lisa at the French Needle (for the thread), I’m giving away the design kit with the specialty threads to one of you peacock fans out there!
The Blue Peacock embroidery kit is suitable for Very Determined Almost-Beginners and beyond. If you’ve never picked up a needle and thread and never worked a stitch, this might not be the kit to start with!
But, if you’ve embroidered even just a little bit and you are confident in your ability to look up and figure out stitches, then you can work this kit.
The kit comes with the stitch layout guide, the pre-printed fabric, some text instructions but not very complex stitch instructions, and the specialty threads (by House of Embroidery) needed to complete the design (but not the DMC threads, which you can supply from your local shop).
If you’d like an opportunity to win this gorgeous kit, please follow these guidelines:
This give-away is now ended. Thanks for participating!
