A while ago, I discovered some cute little kits through my friend Laurence who had bought some. I fell in love with the cute little girls designed by Gorjuss . Like I'm a curious one, I searched the internet to learn more about the artist and found their blog . The little girls are painted by a scottish artist named Suzanne. I love her paintings. Going through the blog, I discovered that she is very sick and can't really keep drawing at the moment. With her husband, they own a family business: she draws and he's in charge of printing and selling her artwork. Since she's been sick, they are going through tough times as she can't paint anymore new paintings. You can read more about her story here and read about their latest update here. I was very touched by her story and can really understand the emotional and financial burden we have to carry when a love one is very sick.
Not a long time ago, they decided to turn her paintings into cross stitch. They are distibuted by Bothy Threads. You can also buy their kits with Sew and so or other cross stitch stores who sell bothy Threads kits.So if you have some stitching gifts to buy for Christmas, think about those cute little kits : I'm sure the person who'll get them will be very happy and you'll help a family who is going through hard times.
Here are some of their cross stitch designs, Emma just loves them !!! I'll buy her one later on as she wants to learn how to cross stitch.
I the packaging !
Aren't they cute?
Please, feel free to spread the word about Suzanne's story and Gorjuss kits on your blogs. I have a special thought for her, her children and her husband.
