Strawberry Pincushion Kits

I picked up my kits for the Strawberry Pincushions. The first Flavor of the Month is Strawberry Delight in pink and burgundy. The second Flavor of the Month is Chocolate and Roses. Each kit contains a crazy quilted base for embellishing including beads and threads as well as a color copy of the completed sample to follow while embroidering.

I've reconnected with my needle art friend, Julie Craig. She's the designer and owner of Attic Heirlooms located in downtown Wichita. Stitching has taken a back seat to my knitting the past several years but has always been in the back of my mind. Many of her designs (that I stitched) decorate my home and others I bring out around the holidays to display. I dug out my supplies of threads and beads to get started on some new projects to add to my collection.
