What an exciting day. After 4 months of history and symbolism and motif patterns, hundreds of pages of wonderful research and photos, the first kit in Tricia's Cabinet of Curiosities online class arrived. The packaging was so beautiful and appropriate, you can't imagine. The colour palate is divine and the silks are to die for, both the threads and the fabrics. I could spend all day just looking at it all instead of stitiching. And there is a beautiful mug for my afternoon tea. I can't decide if I should show it off at work or just keep it at home to enjoy in private. I have died and gone to heaven.
