Tippy Toes As Far As We Go Kits
Two little kits called Tippy Toes and As Far As We Go are our focus today. Back in 2001, we traveled to New Zealand and Australia. We had a fabulous time with my brother and sister-in-law, plus we got to visit our niece who was teaching in Sydney. While in New Zealand we were supposed to fly from the North Island to the South Island. That didn’t happen because the weather was poor, and before boarding the comfy coach bus we were allowed to pick up some souvenirs or snacks. We were quite infatuated with cross stitch so these two kits were our New Zealand souvenirs. Even though they were “made in England.” HAHA!
As Far As We Go First Kits
Just a mere 18 years later, Sue decided one of these DMC kits should be opened. The kits are part of the All Our Yesterdays series. It includes everything you could want: needle, thread, chart, and 16-count ivory Aida fabric. She doesn’t enjoy separating the DMC thread colors and putting them on the included sorting card, so that’s my job. Then the project is all on her and there’s no time limit for the finish. As Far As We Go is such a sweet pattern, depicting a boy and girl with their dog. Unfortunately, per the sign they are reading, they may proceed no further because dogs are not allowed.
I say, who wants to visit that beach anyway if dogs aren’t welcome. That’s As Far As I’d Go as well.
Tippy Toes Is Next Kits
Sweet little Tippy Toes is up next, The same two have added a sibling and lost their dog. It seems they have a piece of mail to post, but it is a little difficult to reach the slot on the box.
Tippy Toes is also finished on ivory 16-count Aida fabric. We will need to come up with a clever way to finish off these two cute stitchery items once they are both complete. Any suggestions?
