I love to keep busy, not crazy busy, but busy, as in Something-to-do. I like to crochet, needlepoint, sew, whatever it takes to keep me out of trouble and make something beautiful. I have lots of ideas in my head but the process of getting the idea into reality is sometimes a long, difficult path so a kit is just right. Not quite my design but close and it’s good to have someone else pick out the yarn.
Recently I found three awesome kits for crewel and needlepoint. All three have been in someone’s stash waiting for the right person to give them life.
Pansies have a vintage, elegant look. Good to make into a pillow or picture.
Boucle Plastic Canvas Ornament kit
The ornaments are worked on plastic canvas. The colors are retro 80’s. Great for tree ornaments, gift tags, or make them into bookmarks.
The Clown would look great in a nursery or child’s room…..or good for a clown collector.
The kits are in the PatternHaus shop. There are other kits there as well and patterns for embroidery and cross stitch.
Well, that’s all for now. Putting lots of “new” patterns in the GoofingOff Sewing shop so make sure to take a look. The Costume Sewing Pattern Sale is still going on. Lots of patterns are gone but there are still a lot of great ones left.
And stop by the Miss Eileen Vintage shop for amazing vintage clothes, hand bags, and collectibles.
