Klipdrift

First there was the knitted Klipdrift bottle; now here's the embroidered crate of Klippies!


Behold the detail:


Different shades of colour and everything. Late nights and a lot of learning.

(Who knew that cross-stitch fabric was so hard to find? And that it comes in different densities? I certainly didn't. But now I have a whole lot left over and it's whispering "Buttons...")

No idea what a klippie is here. Love the cross stitching though :-)

What a great advert! I am impressed by your cross-stitch - I have just recently become fascinated by embroidery. Have been battling to find suitable fabric, though. Where did you find yours?

Tracey said...

"what is a residence without a cache??" did google get that right? do they mean a stash of klipdrift? and what is klipdrift?
sorry for all the questions, my curiosity is getting the better of me. Love the chickweed from your previous post.

Something like that ;) "What is a residence without a case?" Klipdrift is brandy, but there's also a pun (sort of) because 'kas' also means cupboard.

Tracey said...

Thamks, Jesse, the curiosity was killing me, we definitely don.t have it in Ireland. The knitted bottle is brilliant but I couldn't tell what was in it!

Look at you! This looks really good, Jesse. Sadly, I have no idea what a box of klippies is, but it looks good. Buttons indeed!! Please oh please make some :)

stunning werk jesse. jy moet laat weet wanneer dit in die mags is ;>

Tracey said...

Me again. You can get cross-stitch fabric online from www.charlescraft.com They used to do quite small quantities in a rainbow of different colours but they have merged with DMC so I don't know if they offer such a wide range anymore. They also offer a choice of "count"(density).
14ct is standard and equivalent in scale to working over two threads on 28ct linen.

Wow, imagine that! I love embroidery but don't do it often enough. Congrats on being in the new Crochet Today mag! My copy should arrive in the post anyday now.

Jesse said...

Thanks for the fabric source, Tracey!
