Caroline Zoob embroidery kit No 2: A bucket of foxgloves (UK)
At our Decorative Living Fair (www.decorativelivingfair.co.uk) one spring, an exhibitor brought two enormous zinc buckets into which she had planted the tallest, most glamorous foxgloves. They are the inspiration for this embroidery, for which I have chosen some beautiful, hand-dipped variegated threads. The kit consists of a card folder printed with the full colour design together with illustrated instructions. Dotted among these, are some other ideas you could embroider, and a few facts about foxgloves.
The finished design is roughly 15cm square, and is printed on a piece of antique French linen roughly 25cm square. The kit also contains a thread card with all the threads you will need.
Suitable for all levels.
To complete the kit you will need a 6″ or 7″ embroidery hoop, a selection of embroidery needles (sizes 8/9/10) and a pair of small, sharp embroidery scissors. If you decide to paint the bucket, you will also need a little black watercolour paint and a fine synthetic watercolour brush.
The price includes postage and packing to all areas of the United Kingdom.
