My happiest of happy dances came when I pulled this out of the attic. When I thought it was lost I spent years searching for another kit so I could replace it. Appley Dappley hung in my hallway at my old house and I loved her so much. Some of you even helped me search for the now very vintage Erica Wilson crewel kit from way back in the 70's.
With your help I found this one which was similar. I was going to try to modify it to look like the original.
I did find these companion kits from the Beatrix Potter series but I never stitched them because I was waiting to see if I could find the Sitting and Knitting one first.
Now that Appley Dappley's back, I went ahead and kitted up Home Cooking. I'm going to try my hand at some crewel again. I'm not very good at it but I've got nothing to lose...so here goes nothing.
