Important note to self: Do not let all the kits in the shop run out at the same time ever, ever, ever again! Don't get me wrong - I am so grateful to all of you who have found my designs worth buying, Thank you!
Having said that, it is such a nice feeling to have them all packed and ready to go. I usually draw the designs onto the linen for all my crewel work kits and for most of them it is really quite easy but there is one that causes me a bit of grief each time. 'Jacobean Leaves' - the design is so intricate and it takes forever. Well, I decided to try and have had them printed this time and they look Amazing! Beautiful fine, light grey lines, I am so, so happy with the result.
(oops - looks like I should have pressed it! I was just too excited to show
you and it didn't look that bad through the camera, sorry)
I couldn't help but wondering what would happen if I replaced the slightly soft greens with some brighter 'rain forest' shades and the denim blues with some happy turquoise...
... what do you think?
Anyway, I won't have time to test it this weekend - need to get on with the raised embroidery Sweet Honeysuckle and I am teaching Or Nue on Sunday, but I think it is worth giving it a go.
Have a fabulous weekend,
