For Christmas, among other things, I wanted to give the grandchildren sewing kits and "lessons" should they want; but I thought I better learn how before imparting my wisdom.
In the 60's I had embroidered jean fabrics. The colorful floss looks pretty against the rough dark blue. If I find a sample of my work in the attic, I will post later. But this time I was starting with a blank slate. Mother said I could do anything, so I threaded the needle with the included Persian wool and took off deciphering the instructions.
Embroidery should be easy, and these enchanting books on sewing I got for the children have numerous ideas for using felt and fabric.

Friend Alice had just completed her recently found, incompleted Noah and animals on the way to the ark (from her efforts in the 70's) and encouraged me to get this kit on Ebay. Bill ordered for me and I am having fun. Embroidery perks up many crafts from simple felt pieces to quilts and clothes.
