Needlepoint at Target

IMG_1305

While I was at Target stocking up on last minute doo dads to stuff into eggs for our backyard Easter egg hunt I ran into these beauties put together by Todd Oldham’s Hand Made Modern for Target stores. This Embroidery box and this Embroidery Board were begging to come home with me. I quickly scooped them up and then returned to the egg filling challenge. The needlepoint kit pictured below didn’t make it into my cart, but at $19.99 , I hope some beginners give it a go. The falling blocks pattern is lovely.

The embroidery box set included a tapestry needle and black and white chart with lettering options. I decided to do my own pattern using some vintage bucilla crewel wool in grapefruit along with anchor tapesty wool in black and white. The gold accents are done with Kreinik Metallic 1/8 ribbon in gold. With an improvised tent stitch and a viewing of Skyfall, the box was quickly stitched.

I think that this will make a nice box for Mummy’s Mothers Day present. I made a chart for you here : embroidery box , so you can make one too.
