Although not my birthday for a few days yet, my present from ‘him indoors’ arrived today and I was allowed to take a peek. When he gets it right, he gets it really right. I have had my eye on this kit by Jenny Adin Christie for some time, after seeing it posted on IG. The needle case was inspired by the life and works of the late Miss Rachel Kay Shuttleworth who amassed the Gawthorpe textile collection which consists of more than 30,000 pieces of textiles and embroidery from around the world. You can read more about her life and about Jenny’s design process here . I just adored the colours and textures used to create the piece.
I am however, going to be very strict with myself though and will finish off the little Wren Etui kit before starting something new.
Meanwhile in the garden…… this continued heat means that the plants come into flower and are over very quickly. I would love the lilies to go on for longer as their scent is just wonderful in the warm, evening air.
Thank you for reading, happy stitching everyone…
