De Morgan Resting Birds Needlepoint Cushion Kit
‘Resting Birds’ is the second Fine Cell kit I’ve worked. Great quality of wool, good quality canvas with excellent clarity of design printing. This makes for pleasurable sewing.
My first Fine Cell kit ‘Boxing Hares’ was equally high standard and Viking Loom, York, made my finished work into a lovely cushion.
Love the charity aspect too.
Have recommended these kits whenever I can.
I have worked on this lovely design for a few years and have just finished. It’s inevitably a little misshapen as I don’t use a ring but I’ve loved doing it and am half way through the Dodo.
I did run out of the white wool but Fine Cell were able to source me some more so I could finish it. It’s well made, the wool is good quality and I have gained enormous pleasure from stitching calmly away when on holiday (in the past!) and visiting some kind friends over time. I gain real pleasure also from knowing that I’m helping this fine organisation!
I gave this as a gift to a friend of mine who has been extremely stressed over the past few months - COVID, divorce, new house - and offered it as an encouragement for her to sit and find some calm in her day. She wept - it was and has been perfect the perfect antidote to all the breakdown and sadness. The chance to sit calmly and creat something new and beautiful! Thank you Fine Cell Work.
Really enjoying this tapestry which I’ve just started - the colours are beautiful
I can't wait to get going with this tapestry - such a good way of relaxing, with a definite result when completed.
