This is my first canvaswork kit and was designed by Rachel Doyle who is the author of the Royal School of Needlework guide to Canvaswork stitches. She is also a tutor for the School.
Rachel states the source of inspiration for the kit is the trees at Hampton Court Palace. The kit is a sampler of stitches including: tree stitch; John stitch; Scotch stitch and double linked cross stitch. The wool is Appleton’s which I have learned to love as I complete my Loveday Epic Crewelwork project by Nicola Jarvis. All of these stitches are new to me! Can’t wait to start.
I was so pleased to receive this as part of my Christmas box, so thank you Nina And Dave Brown.
