Have you ever heard of Faeries in my Garden? It is an Australian shop that sells the most wonderful and romantic sewing/quilting/embroidery kits. This picture shows Sophie's Sewing Set.
Of course I couldn't resist and ordered the kit.
I have a good reason though: this kit will improve my sewing skills on my dear Bernina.
Three different rose fabrics and a large piece of homespun at the top.
Also a panel with the most beautiful rose motives was included. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the panel.
All the motives on the panel appear on the different sewing items.
This is an embroidery block album, it is 11,5" wide and 12" high.
I'm not sure what it's purpose is. I suppose it can store a piece of embroidery. If anyone knows, please tell me.
On the backside of the front is a pocket. Two pages of batting are inside. Around the edges I worked a row of blanket stitches.
This is the back side.
This is a covered tape measure. I think I must be careful not to pull too far when using the tape measure. It won't roll up by itself ;-) Cretan stitches hide the hand sewed seams perfectly.
This stitcher's pillow is meant to lay it down on your lap. It can be used to rest your embroidery on as you stitch.
The backside is even prettier.
Here it is sitting on our couch, the colors match perfectly but it is too small (8,5" x 9").
Sophie's Sewing Set also includes a little hanging heart. Instead of that hanging heart I'm thinking about creating a CQ heart shaped cushion of the remnants of the fabrics.
