For the last couple of weeks we have been trying to clear our loft! It is a big loft and it is very full! We remove as much as we can and sort it into items to dump and items to go to the charity shop. Today I threw out all my old school books and University folders. Don't really know why I even kept them in the first place!
Anyway, I have also started to find craft items which I bought a long time ago. Two such items are shown in the photos below.So I was wondering if anyone would be interested in swapping with me. I will send these embroidery kits anywhere in the world and in return you send me fabric! (100% cotton for patchwork of course) So if you like the look of either of the kits and you have a few fat quarters you don't want or even some vintage cotton fabric we could have a deal.
So what is up for grabs?
First this is an embroidery or stitchery kit printed onto linen. It makes a finger plate which is the old fashioned plate you attach above the handle on old wooden doors. The perspex plate is also included as is the thread. This would also make a lovely redwork design and of course you can just use it as a small picture or even as a panel in a patchwork item.
Second is a picture with a wooden frame also printed onto linen. Again threads are included.It is a very attractive design with the words 'You are nearer God's heart in a garden than anywhere else on earth'. Click on the photo if you want a closer look. Size is 8 x 10 inches.
