A word about my Lavender Sachets.  This unique sachet design is my own.  It is filled with fragrant lavender.  You stitch the small canvas, trim and insert into the "window opening".  Done!! 
I have sachets that are just the canvas and sachet.  

There are also kits that include a stitchguide and 3 River Silks ribbon spools. They are designed to be easy and quick for even a novice ribbon stitcher. These kits can be purchased from your local needlepoint store or on my website.

"Gosh, Darn!!" in March is first time to use Vicki Day Designs hand-dyed silk ribbons.  The stitchguide has tips for locking-starting-stopping with silk ribbon to use every inch.  An inch here, an inch there saves lots!  Never throw shorter bits away.

Draw your own or order on my website here: 

The ribbons are so new that most shops do not carry them.  Peacock Alley Needlepoint in Ada, MI, has the entire kit.  Contact them and say Gosh Darn!! sign me up!

Now the year feels like we are underway. I was gone for 10 days and I came back to find Spring! So lovely in Seattle!  I couldn't be more excited about 2016! 


Stitchers make the best friends.

Gosh, Darn!!
March and the first look at Vicki Day Designs silk ribbon.  Be sure to follow the tips in the stitchguide.
