It finally arrived yesterday. The Casket Keepsakes "Winter" kit.
So of course I had to start it. It is so fun to start something new. I had to iron everything and do some basting of the design parts to muslin.
I got to Lesson 2 which is actual stitching. This is fun!
I got two kits for Christmas. One is the Hampton Court Kit from England.
I want to put this on the top of my casket. There is a whole book of directions. Forty pages long.
I read through the first few pages to see what has to be done first. What I have to do first is color the pond with some permanent colored pencils. They aren't in the kit so I ordered them. I found an art supply place where you can just order the color number that you need rather than get a big set. I need three blue pencils. They were shipped yesterday. I have to wait to start this kit but I want to do it just right.
Boy, am I lucky.
