I've been anxiously awaiting this kit since I ordered it months ago. I don't know why but I just love this project. The mailman brought me my Needleworker's Pocketbook kit yesterday. What fun to see all the goodies it contains.
What fun to start something new. I thought I would spend the next few days just basting and backstitching but the point that she tells you to start happens to be a cross stitch. The first part I am working on is the inside pocket. It is supposed to look like this:
This is how far I got:
I'm not sure I like one of the colors as it doesn't show up very well. I've already changed it on the strawberries. (Yes, more strawberries! Good thing I love them.)
I put a few stitches into the Strawberry Thief. It is slow going as I am doing tent stitch over one on 32 count. I'm trying not to get lost. Sometimes a highlighter helps.
Today I want to get all the way across the pocket with the top band. The pocket has a very interesting band at the bottom, can't wait to get there.
