It seems like I can't stop making ornaments this season.
This is a crewel kit from Erica Wilson I purchased at Goodwill. At first, I hesitated to call it a vintage kit, but then, I looked up vintage. There is general agreement that something is vintage when it's at least 30 years old.
The date stamp on the fabric clinches it - the kit is vintage. It's kind of scary when something from when you were growing up is now vintage.
I also wonder about what the kit has been doing all these years. Did it have one owner or dozens? Was it a spur of the moment purchase which was forgotten in a drawer? Was it a well meaning gift to the wrong person? Was it going to be started "next week"?
I'll never know - but I'll try my best to get it finished. The result will be 3 felt birds covered with metallic stitches and sequins - how fun!
