A Brazilian embroidery kit for one of you!!

I have this habit of going through my present stash of BE threads and other precious hard to get threads once in a while - one, I simply enjoy looking at those and imagining what I could possibly do with them ,and second, I rediscover stuff I've forgotten about.

One such item is this Brazilian embroidery learning kit from JDR that I had purchased while learning BE. I never got around to stitching it and its almost 6 years!! This kit is called "Creeping flower" and is the kit number 2 in the learning kit series.

Originally, it came with the preprinted pattern, the necessary strands to stitch, a set of needles and the instructions. When I had my last giveaway of BE threads, I mailed the needles and instructions with the picture to winner as a surprise ...but the postal dept spoiled it all by promptly misplacing the package. It never reached her.


So at present, the package only has the fabric with the pattern and the different BE threads. I'll be adding the written instructions to it.

If you are keen on experiencing BE with the original Edmar rayon threads,here's your chance. Leave a comment here on this post - a hi would do . The giveaway is open till March 16th,2011. I'll be announcing the name of the winner here on March 17th .

Love,luck and sunshine,
Deepa

Can't resist adding my name to the pot too! I've dabbled a little bit in BE, but not enough to really learn it properly. This would certainly be a good incentive!
