A Gift For Mum

This is what I'm giving my mother for her birthday this week.

Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers No. 37 - Its Berry Time

I'm giving her Blackbird Designs 'It's Berry Time' chart all kitted up. Included are Crescent Colours threads in Wild Berries to make the main design, and also Bean Sprout along with Ye Old Gold to create the berry. The fabric is an R & R called Iced Cappucino in a 30ct.

I hope she'll like it. She loves needlework designs that are all red, and the baskets in this pattern will capture her eye. I think I'm on a winner here. :)

Drema from Needlecraft Corner, has packaged the kit in a clear plastic bag to keep everything together, so I have left it in this when I took the photos. Perhaps not the best for a good view of the supplies, but I didn't want to open it. I will leave it as it is before I wrap it.

How easy is it to buy something for someone that likes needlework? There's endless ideas out there for them. I'm sure she'll love this one.

Lovely gift!

Thanks for recommending Needlecraft Corner! I just emailed off an order today. I've been having trouble finding the buttons for my Strawberry House and I was able to order them kitted there.

Oh wow what a lovely gift!! I think it's easy to buy gifts for stitchers too. I don't understand why folks struggle to get me things when it's my birthday lol. I think I'm the easiest to buy for. Happy Birthday to your mum. xx

Your mother will love her gift. It's great to receive a kitted up project so that you can start stitching right away.
