Chelsea Garden Sanctuary
The Chelsea Garden Sanctuary is the newest addition to our Kirk and Bradley for Elizabeth Bradley range.
The design is 20" x 15" on 24" x 19" canvas. The Needlepoint Kit is printed on 12 count mono canvas and is supplied complete with Elizabeth Bradley wool, a printed chart, and easy to follow instructions for Basketweave Stitch. This kit comes on a Pale Yellow background colour only.
I’m a long time fan of Elizabeth Bradley kits and I have stitched more than my share. The Chelsea series is a change of pace and I love going back and forth, stitching at random. The printed canvas is so clear and easy to work with.
I absolutely love the design I got, Chelsea Garden Sanctuary. The kit was put together in a perfect box which I can use to store supplies in while I finish the piece.
Can't comment on making the tapestry as it was a gift for a friend. However it was beautifully presented in the box, with all you needed included in the kit, and our friend was "over the moon" with it. She loves the picture (she's a keen gardener) and can't wait to get started.
Being a gift, when I ordered it I asked if a note to be included and wrote some words, which included a short rhyme, in the comments area on the order. When it arrived (delivered very efficiently and quickly by courier), someone at Elizabeth Bradley had typed up my words on a sheet of paper and stuck it inside a card. So thoughtful of them. Initially the kit may seem a little expensive, but you get what you pay for and this is a top quality item from a company with top quality service. Thank you so much, Elizabeth Bradley.
The last two years I did the shade garden rug and for most of the time absolutely loved it, this being my first attempt. The bits that were worrying were the border arriving with no pattern!! Total panic but the lovely lady at EBs soon helped and told me how to do it explaining it was easy when you got going which it was. The second wobble was putting the rug together which again I thought would be too difficult but surprised myself , again with a lot of advice again from EB, and am now the proud owner of a beautiful rug. Not only do these tapestries keep your fingers nimble but they also keep your mind active which in these tedious times is essential. Thank you EB. Now for my cushion , it’s a Christmas present so just looking forward to doing it and along with my friend Joan we shall see this time if we can get the back as neat as the front. Joan has done one already , a horse I think and just so beautiful back and front. One friend at craft class took a whole day sorting her wools out when she bought one from a different company these are just so beautifully presented and make wonderful gifts as well if you can possibly bear to part with one. To anyone reading this, enjoy you are beginning on a journey making a family heirloom! Happy 2021
I am very pleased with the new garden piece - I have completed the other gardens and really enjoyed doing them and luv how they look - hope there is a new one next year!
