Remember all of those vintage needlework kits I've been buying over the past year or so? I stitched one up!
This isn't my favorite of the kits I've bought, but I wanted to start with something that wouldn't break my heart if I completely messed it up. The package was labeled "a beginning stitchery kit," which helped me make my choice I did learn from this project, and modified my techniques a bit as I stitched my way through it. I think I'm improving.
Overall, I'm happy with the results and it's steadily grown on me. My mother had a harvest gold kitchen when I was growing up and something about it makes my heart go pitty pat a little faster than it might without those gold accents.
There's a bigger kit with flour canisters, which was in the first crewel haul, and there are also four smaller kits. This is one, and I've got the cocoa tin. I'd love to find the tobacco tin and syrup tin and (if I ever got all five of them stitched up) make them into a quilted wall hanging.
The name of the design is "Coffee Antique Tin." Doesn't that sound wrong? Do you know why you want to rename it to "Antique Coffee Tin?"
In the English language, adjectives go in a certain order opinion, size, age, shape, color, origin, material, purpose. We all do it...but we don't know that we're following a rule. And that's the kind of weird thing that you learn when you're homeschooling a pack of curious kids.
Did you learn this at some point in your education? With all of the writing classes I took over the years and all of the books and articles I've read, I never knew there was rule telling you which order to put the words in.
