I received the August kit as a gift from a secret stitcher friend. It's stitched on 28ct antique white Quaker Cloth and measures approximately 5.3" by 4". It features the August birthstone, peridot, and gladiolus. It's stitched with perle cotton, floss, and metallic thread.
I liked the August kit so much, I made the July kit for my daughter. It's the same size, stitched on 28ct Confederate Grey Quaker Cloth and it features a ruby heart and larkspur. I also made the October kit for my Mom.
These are quick projects, and if you don't want a needleroll, they are designed to pop right into a 5" by 7" frame. I put mine in an 8" by 10" frame with a small mat and they look great. They make a nice gift stitched up for someone, and the kit itself is a nice gift for a stitching friend.
In other sewing news, I've made a muslin of the high waist pants from my wardobe plan. They need some tweaking, but maybe I'll have a finished pair of pants to show soon.
