What materials did you use? I have used a batik, different decorative yarns, and decorative machine stitches so far. Came home tonight, got frustrated with a quilt block and decided to begin this - as Carol Anne says, "There are no rules," and that really appealed to me! The reason that I scored this project as a 3 is that my thread stash seems to be mostly pastel and I'm learning that I need to add a lot of more vibrant colors.

What are you most proud of? The colors pop! Ok, so at least SOME of them do!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check your bobbin thread! I ran out on one of the lines and had to match back up. Managed fairly well, but what a pain! And DON'T let your husband leave the sewing room door open. The dog will run in and hide under the sewing table, clawing at your pedal foot and leg when it's time to go out! And it's probably not a good idea to sew until 2 a.m. because then you get on the web and add projects to Craftsy with really weird descriptions!

This is a nice start. Love the complimentary contrast. Do not worry, more kits are on their way to Craftsy! Everyone who wants one will get one. (We underestimated the demand!)

Very nice work.... where can we buy the kits and books?

That's lovely. I like the background material and your choice of colours. I'm so envious of your machine stitches too. I think I need a new sewing machine!
