This gorgeous kit had arrived in time for me to prepare some sewing to take away on holiday with me, incase there was a spare hour or two while I was away! The kit included some fusible interfacing that I ironed to the back of the background fabric, then traced the design using a light box and a frixion pen (my favourite Mircron Pigma pens were hiding up!) and I sorted out some Valdanii threads for the stitchery. The stitchery for the button jar didn't take very long to stitch at all...
...I managed to stitch most of the embroidery for the front of the scissor keeper while I was away, and hope to get the applique completed over the next few evenings. Hexies and me haven't got on in the past but I'm persevering wit them as I have a rather lovely project to do soon that has rather a lot of them, so I really need to improve my technique!
