|Glossy box - the same size as a US Priority small mailer|
This first shipment was exciting as I had a custom storage box made for the club and I bet most people thought the contents would just show up in a plastic bag. Nope! We all deserve something a bit special to keep our threads in. The glossy box is covered in motifs from the 17th century and is magnetically closed so it will be useful long after the threads are gone.
|Inside of Frostings Kit 1|
I am not going to review all the threads in this blog as those who will sign up for the club (there are spots and boxes left) need a bit of surprise when they open it! But let me show a few of them right now and explain what can be done with them.
|Blue and Cream lacet braid|
|Pansy Posey Instructions are Free on my site. The braids|
are included in the Frostings Kit
The next items you find are a set of three silk
|Grey and white gimps to extend the Silk Gimp range of threads|
|Serpentine Silk Trim|
also want to use this trim on the edge of sampler ornaments too. I just wish I could get more of this! There is a very thin silk covered wire inside that helps the trim hold its shape. Easily couched down, the more you play with the trim, the more ideas for its use pop into your head.
|Thick Striped Gimps|
The last teaser is the other set of Free instructions you will find on my site for some of the contents of this Frostings Box. A blackwork rose based on a drawing in Thomas Trevelyan's manuscript of embroidery patterns is now up for your enjoyment. If you have the Frostings box - all you will need
is a piece of linen, a spool of Soie Paris in black (noir) and a needle!
|Instructions for this design are available on my website|
If you aren't a member of the Frostings Club - you can still join for this box and the next in the series. There are about 100 left before they are gone!
