Yes!  I got the Harmony Kit in the mail yesterday.  I haven't started it but I will today.  There is a wonderful up close photo that will really help when I'm wondering about something.

Then there is a lot of thread, three cards worth.  There are also several different kinds of thread.

There are several fabrics.  I have to baste the muslin to the fabric as one of my first steps.
Then there is a packet of all the stuff you need for the stumpwork.

I think a lot of this work will need a hoop.  I'll have to see if I have another large one.
This will be a very interesting project.  The Or Nue is something that I have never done before but I love that you can get a lovely fabric design for the ladies dress with it.

I finished up the Butterfly Needle Case and scissors fob.
Here is the case:
It has a butterfly button to hold it closed.

I'm not crazy about the bird, he seems too primitive a style for the rest of the design. I changed his colors a bit.

Here is the scissors fob. It is done over one on 30 count linen.

Beware!  There is also a problem with the colors for this part.  Some of the symbols are switched.

  1. That looks like an interesting project.
    The needle case and fob turned out nice.
    Sorry you had so much trouble with it.
