Our Agapanthus design is already a sure favourite! The Agapanthus flower is also known as The African Lily of the Nile, even though it is not actually a Lily! It can also symbolize fertility, purity, beauty and love. We certainly love this flower and the design here is open to your interpretation. The image derives from an original watercolour by Annie, painted in her garden in Devon. The soft linen is actually stitched very simply with basic stitches but in a painterly way as if you are using the thread as your paint.
Treat yourself to a creative bit of slow stitching time! We are sure that you will feel rewarded by the results.

Our kits are beautifully packaged in recycled kraft boxes, which themselves in time can be recycled.
These contemporary embroidery kits contain all that you need to make your own beautiful embroidered hoop art, from the design down to the needles! The designs are semi-abstract yet painterly, and follow Annie’s usual inspiration of botanical blooms and muted colour palettes. Coastal themes feature as well as especially created images for decorating little ones rooms. Originally from hand drawn pen and watercolour sketches, they have been digitally printed onto luxury cotton linen fabric for you. No need for any tracing or transferring of images, yay!
You can embrace your own creativity with these kits and embellish as much or as little as you like. There are stitch suggestions with images and a guide for beginners how to create Annie’s simple ‘go-to’ embroidery stitches, but no formal rules! Quality six strand threads are included in the colour palettes used in the examples, but please feel free to add as many other colours as you wish to really make your embroidery unique to you.
There is a top quality brass screw hoop included with each kit, which you may use for mounting the embroidery when it is finished. This is a nice and easy way to frame your work and either prop on a shelf or simply hang on the wall. Each kit is beautifully presented in a Kraft gift box making a stunning gift and also a perfect way to store your project whilst making it! Alternatively, you may like one of our craft clutches to store your stitching projects in.
