Stash Box Reveal - July 2023
I was laughing to myself mere minutes into stitching this month's sample because there I was, unpicking the bloody thing for the second time already, proving the importance of counting properly!
I really enjoyed stitching this sample up and I'm looking forward to taking the time to add a back to it properly for the wall. I think that the colours really pop on the black aida and it's made me want to do some more patterns on dark backgrounds.
This month's Deluxe Box treat is a bookmark project I created in collaboration with Emma from The Maker's Marks. Emma has created a tutorial for a needlepoint stitch and I've put together a mini-kit, which includes instructions, canvas and a skein of DMC soft cotton thread to use. I've decided to keep the kit a secret until boxes arrive, but I'll be adding a couple of spares to the subscribers section of the website once the boxes ship.
This month's box comes with:
- Four skeins - 957, 956, 444, 3756
- 6 inch Elbesee embroidery hoop
- 14 count black DMC aida
- Felt for backing your project
- Card DMC branded bobbins
If you opt for the Deluxe Box, you'll also receive:
- white 14 count aida 20cm square
- A second piece of backing fabric
- A HT x The Makers Marks bookmark kit
- Laser cut and engraved bobbins in lieu of the DMC card ones
If you're a Stash Box or Bobbin Box subscriber who wants to upgrade for one month only, email me at email@example.com and I'll sort that out for you.
