They are here! The embroidery kits we ordered from Israel have arrived. Those who pre-ordered have already had theirs sent. Here is a little background about the designer - a young Israeli woman - Tamar. She writes:
"My works are topically naïve, dreamy, yet they always evoke a deep internal emotion.
Instead of drawing with watercolors or pencils, I use needle and thread."
Everything you need to complete the project is included.
They are on our website and ready to send...
