Happy Sunday, everyone!
There have been so many exciting things going on at Needlepoint.Com lately- the Raleigh Retreat and Sights and Scenes of London featured in Needlepoint Now– I’m excited to share with you our newest Mini Hot Air Balloon Club!
My favorite thing about these balloons is how versatile they really are! While I know these will be making an appearance on our Christmas Tree- I think they would make the perfect addition to your Easter, or Valentines Day decorations, too. Plus, with their soft pastel colors, I think they would make the sweetest baby gift ever!
The new club begins April 1st, and includes all six of the new Kirk and Bradley Mini Hot Air Balloons, a stitch guide, and all the threads you will need to complete the project! One new canvas will arrive at your doorstep each month. The Mini balloons are stitched with lots of fun techniques- beading, crescents, stripped Kreinik couching- these little guys are the perfect opportunity to learn something new! On the other hand, if you’re intimidated by all the different stitches in there, all the threads included in the kit could be used to Basketweave your project- you would just need to order a little extra background thread, since the background in the kit is an open stitch.
Here is a closeup of my favorite balloon, stitched:
PS. If you’re a fan of these little guys, make sure to check out our larger Single and Multi Hot Air Balloon Class. For those of you unable to make it to the shop, they will be available to order as kits soon!
