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!
Lovely gift ! Hope your mom’ will show us her project(s) with these yarns.
I will make sure there’s an update when she starts work on it 🙂
Wao..these are Nice!!
Hey Check my Hand Embroidery post ..you will definitely enjoy my design 🙂
oh that’s really pretty!
FYI: I pinned a couple of your articles at Pinterest, ie, chain stitching with steel crochet hook was especially cool. And your photos of punchneedle embroidery were nice and clear. Peace!
OK, so I must be pretty stupid, but I’d never even CONSIDERED embroidering with yarn! What a fantastic idea!
a whole new world for you then! Just think of all the projects you can do now!
Can’t wait to see what your Mom does with this. Thinking about the piece she shared here, it’s bound to be outstanding!
She’s going to be guest posting about some of her other projects in the coming months. They’re really amazing, so I’m glad y’all will get to see them too.
What a lovely and thoughtful present! Please tell us what she does with it 🙂
I Love my new embroidery kit. The yarns are gorgeous, the textures are wonderful. I will have a lot of fun with these as soon as Hannah gets through throwing them on the floor!
I’m glad to hear the yarns are no longer being thrown around – do keep us informed!
