Kaleidoscopic Kits from Kurdy

They're here! We've finally assembled all the materials for two of the colorways of Cat's Eyes, the stunning charted needlepoint design that received a first-place ribbon at the 48th Annual Woodlawn Needlework Exhibition in March. As things came in, we found that as usual, the pictures of the finished pieces don't do justice to the fabulous colors and textures.

Isn't Cleopatra beautiful? You're seeing everything but the beads, and boy are there beads! In addition to Mill Hill beads and twisted bugle beads, you get 276 crystal bicones in a rainbow of colors: topaz, green, red, aquamarine, and olive. We're using a sandstone canvas with this colorway.

Venus is absolutely gorgeous! We love the rich jewel tones of this colorway. As Dawn was putting the kit together, she kept double-checking to make sure she had it right, the picture was so deceptive. This too includes many beads, with Miyuki Rocailles, twisted bugle beads, and 234 crystal bicones in fuchsia, olive, amethyst, and aqua. Dazzling!

We have limited quantities available right now but will be keeping these beauties in stock.
