I was really excited to see this kit because as a kid, I used to love to embroider. This was in the 70's when embroidery on jeans and jean jackets were all the rage. I still have one of the jean jackets I embroidered way back when. I used to give hand-embroidered chambray shirts as Christmas gifts to my Mom and grandparents and still have the embroidered sun that was on the back of the shirt I gave my grandfather one year. It was still in his closet when he passed away. The chambray was frayed and well worn. I cut the back apart, saving the embroided sun.
But, it has been ages and ages since I had done any embroidery even though I still have all my patterns, hoops, needles and embroidery floss. That is up until recently. I've been busy making quick cards using this amazing kit. It's been nice sitting in my comfy chair in the afternoons, embroidering and having the feel of the embroidery floss in my fingers again!
