17 Kits in '17

Hot on the heels of my 17 WIPs in '17 challenge, I also want to work some of the kits I've bought or been given as presents over the years.  Some of them are new, some I've had for many years, but I'd like to work them all and make some space in my house for new kits!


1. Sarah Homfrey goldwork kit, bought at one of her classes

2. Sarah Homfray crewel kit, bought for me by my parents

3. Mini Chatelaine and Scissor fob kit, Christmas present from my parents

4. Pincushion, Christmas present from my parents

5. Laurelin Montmellick kit, a birthday present from my parents

6. Beetle wing embroidery kit, birthday present from my parents

7. Bunny cross stitch kit, cover gift with a magazine

8. Boothy Threads Love Tree, a present from my ex-in-laws

9. Spellbound necklace kit, bought at the Knitting and Stitching show

10. Beaded Christmas tree, present from mum

11. Metal styling.  A gift a few years ago, I don't remember who from

12. Cold enamelling.  Another kit I've had for years

13. Copper leaf starter kit, again, a present a few years ago

14. Gel candles.  A gift from my parents

15. Lily's Mosaics mosaic kit.  I bought this at a class earlier in the year.

16. Screen printing on polymer clay.  A present for Christmas 2015.

17. Sheila the Sheep bookmark.  I won this in a giveaway.

Whilst writing this post, I thought of a few more kits I have, but they will have to wait until next year!

Wow - what a lot of fabulous kits and projects for 2017. It looks like you are going to be busy but also have a lot of fun. I have the Sculpey screen printing kit and I really like using it. I have made all sorts of patterned pendants. I have also found that you can use the screens with a darker coloured acrylic paint and then once cured, colour in the pattern using alcohol markers. I haven't tried that yet, but really want to!
Enjoy all your wonderful projects.
Best wishes
