My first thought while stitching this little kit was to make the stitched work into a pincushion, as I progressed, I came up with another idea. I did change the linen and the threads from those that came in the kit for this finish using 26 count natural linen (over 2) and mostly Crescent Colours thread instead.
I picked up this kit during my visit to the Shepherd’s Bush shop in Ogden, UT during our trip. Being mindful of our schedule and my budget I didn’t shop long or buy very much but it was a nice quiet break in our travels. My pictures inside the shop didn’t turn out well at all but there are lots of good ones over at the Shepherd Bush website.
A little more info about the new webshop. After much consideration (and some of it very difficult) I’ve decided to reduce the variety of items I offer. Having a 2nd grader in the house again means that my ‘homeschool mom’ duties are increasing from what they have been for the past several years. I know there are lots of websites out there to choose from and we can’t all carry everything. I hope you will still find things you like, I have lots of inventory to list but eventually you will see mostly my favorite designers and current blog projects available at the website.
Hope you are having a great week so far!
