J. Pudney: A History

If you are a fan of small printed kits you can use as travel projects, then you'll enjoy reading Needlepoint for Fun's short history of J. Pudney.

I've stitched An Overdose of Devonshire Tea and Cafe Girls from the postcard-sized series and loved them!  I also have Madonna and Dog waiting in The Stash. These come kitted with floss and are printed designs but are hilarious or sweet, depending on your mood.

I also have my eye on Hungry Woman and Bring on the Man Slaves.

I wasn't familiar with the Mary Self line but I was able to browse some of their small, fun projects here.

  1. I used to sell those in the brick-and-mortar Scarlet Thread. I never stitched any myself, but I found the designs fun.

    1. I really like some of them. They are all humorous and fun to embellish or do just in tent. Use the supplied floss or raid your stash. They are fun and quick—can't beat that!
