Colour of the Forest Embroidery Kit
This embroidery kit is inspired by one of my watercolour paintings, Colour of the Forest.
Spruce trees have always been my friends. I grew up with them surrounding the farm. Of course they were planted as shelter belts but with my active imagination they became my friends, a cheering crowd and confidants.
This embroidery kit is inspired by my friends, the spruce trees and more specifically this and other tree paintings I have created. I hope you love stitching them as much as I did.
Each kit contains:
- 10″ hoop
- pre-washed cotton/linen fabric with tree painting and embroidery stencil
- all the threads you need
- pattern guide
Embroidery was my very first creative, handcraft skill that I learned from my Mom. I love it. I have always loved it. The process of using a needle with fibre and thread turns my brain off and sends me int a state of medatative bliss!
As a small kid, I spent hours hovering over my Mom’s shoulder watching her hands make precise stitches. I was always so upset that she would never let me run a sewing machine. When the embroidery hoop came out and I saw how she made magic with thread and needle, and created all kinds of pretty designs and images on cloth, I was hooked. I think I was 7 years old.
That first stitch I took on my own embroidery hoop, changed my life.
