Here are some first proper photographs of the new kits made up and photographed by William Lingwood from The Pixel Kitchen. The response so far has been really great! So glad they are well liked. A large order from Royal School of Needlework was so encouraging too. Now I am cooking up some more designs for later in the year. 


  1. <3 they look really lovely Nancy! xXx

  2. Just found you lovely blog
    They are beautiful

  3. They are absolutely BEAUTIFUL ! I love them.

  4. These are beautiful - the pigeon design made me smile as I always think of pigeons as great lumpen things, compared to all the dainty chaffinches, goldfinches, and sparrows in the garden, and you've made this one quite, um, 'solid'! Love it!

    1. Hi Else, Thank you, yes he is very "solid", unlike the collared doves who inhabit my garden and who provide the theme tune to most of my days. They are much more delicate altogether. I have so enjoyed looking at the wonderful house in your latest blog. What an absolute treasure, thank you for sharing it. Places like this a rarity caught quietly in our rushing world. xx

    2. Goodness, Nancy - thank you so much for having a look at my blog! It never occurs to me that anyone other than family would, hence the dire lack of postings of late...I loved that house too, and am angling for another visit to take more photos. Incidentally, we have collared doves too, which I think are lovely. I think I'm being a bit pigeonist...!

  5. Oh, I LOVE the colors, they are so bright. Can you tell me what kind of thread did you use? Or, where can I order something like this?
    Thank you,

    1. Hi Adriana
      Thank you for your kind comments ... The threads used in my kits are DMC stranded cotton. You can buy the kits from my website
      Best wishes Nancy x
