This is soo beautiful, but how complete are the instructions? It looks rather difficult unless one were just doing blackwork, which would be a pity when yours is so beautifully coloured.

(One day...would you be able to make a frog purse pattern, or is that just too difficult?)

The pattern is designed to be done in either blackwork or polychrome embroidery. It's not a kit, per se, more a pattern that you can embroider any way you want to. I give ideas and suggestions, and on the colour model, I followed the colour style of some early 17th century stawberries.

Once you break it down, it's not hard at all - it's just leaves and strawberries, with a coiling vine behind it.

The frog purse just doesn't have enough pattern to it to be worth selling - I eyeballed the original and drew out what I thought would work. Honestly, if you can do detached buttonhole stitch, you can work out how to do one from my description of it on my web site. I even have a slightly blurry photograph of the pattern I drew out.

Oh I hadn't seen that, it is fascinating.
I wonder, what do you choose as embroidery floss?

I used Halcyon Yarns' Gemstone silk 18/3 (the smallest size thread they have). It's nice, but not colourfast. Any silk thread will do, just as long as it's not too thin. Soie Perlee will also work.
