Ebook finished and a winner!
Wow, thank you so much for all who entered my give-away! Seventy comments were left on last week's blog post. The flower with the most votes turned out to be the Carnation, followed by Campanula and Tudor Rose. So glad I asked my blog readers for their favourites as I had never thought that the humble Carnation would win. But, more importantly, who won the give-away and will be the proud owner of a copy of the ebook on 'Early 17th century linen vestments from Tyrol: Historical background, where to find and instructions' and the kit of her choice? Drumroll please!
And the winner is: Jackie Ayres who voted for Viola. Congratulations!
If you weren't the lucky winner, don't fret! You'll find my new ebook for sale in my webshop. One Euro of each sold ebook will be donated to the Museum in Brixen where the chasuble that inspired me to this ebook is housed. You will also find embroidery kits for the Carnation, Campanula and Tudor Rose there.
So what's in the ebook? Besides the historical background on the silk embroidered linen vestments from Tyrol, you'll find a list with museums where you can find these gorgeous pieces of embroidery. In the second part of the ebook, you'll find the eight flowers of the Brixen chasuble as a line drawing and with instructions so that you can stich your own. Furthermore, there's instructions on materials used, stitches used (three youtube videos) and where to find the materials used. Not fond of silks? No worries. The line drawings can be used for other types of surface embroidery too! How about using them in a crewel piece? Or go wild with stranded cotton and all sorts of filling stitches. Anything goes as long as you are having fun with needle, thread and my ebook!
Congratulations Jackie Ayres!
Gefeliciteerd Jackie met je kit, Jessica kennende zal de kit zorgvuldig zijn samengesteld met een duidelijke handleiding.

What a surprise that Carnation was the #1 choice! Congratulations to the winner of the drawing. The Viola looks like a wonderful flower to stitch!
Congratulations on finishing your book! I hope the Museum in Brixen will become very rich! <3
Yes, that's indeed always a surprise. And I think I know why the carnation is so popular; people do not comprehend what it is exactely that they see :).
Congratulations! Now I have a serious dilemma: to buy only your book or the book with one of the kits (and which one)? :D
I think I can help you with that Agne! There is now the option of the ebook + all the materials to make the whole sampler with all eight flowers :).
