When I get a kit in the mail DH calls me Imelda.  As in Imelda Marcos who was known for having an extraordinary number of shoes.  DH thinks I have too many kits.  I do.  He is absolutely right.  Part of the problem is I am highly suggestible.  Mary Corbet gets me into so much trouble.(
 I read her blog and love that she tells about nifty things she has run across.  But then I order them.  The latest kit that she talked me into came in the mail yesterday.  Actually, I got three kits from the UK.  DH knows I am a sucker for anything with a crown on it. This is one of the kits I ordered:
I ordered it not knowing how big it was.  When I got it I measured and it will be about three inches by three inches.  It's a little big for a pin to wear.
The kit was packaged nicely:
Inside the little bags were these treasures:

Along with instructions.
See at the bottom.  This is for an "expert".  Uh-oh.  I better start with an easier one.
 This is for a beginner:
I'll try this one first.


  1. I think it is too cute that your husband calls you Imelda. The things you make are beautiful. I love the goldwork kits. I also liked the basket kit you got yesterday. I went to the internet to try and find it but I was unable to, but I really don't need another kit. Have fun with your kits
