Creative embroidery kit

I thought I’d show y’all what I gave my mother for Christmas.

It’s a home-made creative embroidery kit! I went to the craft store and put it together myself. It includes ten balls of nice yarn with a variety of interesting textures, linen burlap, some very large needles, and a silk bag from Kyoto to carry it in. Here’s another photo of the yarns (one ball rolled onto the floor just before the last photo).

I wonder what she’ll do with them! Here are some close up photos of the textures, which should produce some very interesting results.

Oh wait, I dropped another one. Here it is!

    OK, so I must be pretty stupid, but I’d never even CONSIDERED embroidering with yarn! What a fantastic idea!
