This post is for Rebecca who is going to a class with Alison Cole next week. I'm jealous!
This all started because of Facebook. I saw a darling kit on Facebook and looked up the designer. Then I starting reading Alison Cole's blog when she was chronicling her trip to the UK. She is an Australian embroidery designer. Well then I looked at her website. And her kits. Okay, I caved. I ordered several of her kits. She was out of the country when I ordered so I didn't hear from her for a couple weeks. I thought maybe my order didn't go through. I'll was just going to leave it at that. But she got back to Australia and she moved into a new studio. Then she let me know that the kits I ordered were being made up and would be sent shortly. I know things sent from Australia can take a long time. I was on trips of my own so it didn't matter if it took a while. Last week I got the kits. Four of them. They are so cool.

I couldn't resist these two butterflies:
Rebecca, have fun at Alison Cole class, show me what you are making and tell her "Hi" from me!
