As I mention last time, the Craft Getaway that I had planned for last weekend didn't go ahead so I've decided to share one of the projects here in the form of a step by step craft along. I suppose it's like a tutorial run over a few weeks but you don't know what you're making. Every Friday for the next few weeks I will post the instructions for each step to make the mystery project. I know the whole mystery thing might be a bit daunting but I promise you will end up with something lovely at the end. It is a small project and you might have most of the materials already. I just went through my stash and used some leftovers from other projects.
I think this will be fun don't you?
As this is the first time I have done anything like this please feel free to contact me if you think something doesn't seem right or isn't clear.
Here is what you will need.

Edit: On the printable list it should be an embroidery thread that matches the 3" square.

I do have a few kits that I made up in preparation for the Craft Getaway so if you would like to purchase one of them, just email me via the "Contact Me" in the right sidebar. Also I am giving away a kit to one lucky reader who leaves a comment on my previous post HERE by this Tuesday (October 30th).
