Marny offers a series of needlework kits capturing the look of miniature hooked rugs.   These little pieces of art are made with cotton thread (some of which is overdyed) and a few simple embroidery stitches, mostly French Knots.   Each kit comes with all the necessary thread, and with the design printed on white cotton fabric.   It also includes detailed instructions and a color photograph of the finished piece.

Most of Marny's designs incorporate her memories of childhood - happy days spent alone, surrounded by beautifully illustrated children's books, teddy bears and dolls.   She learned to read, draw, sew and knit in a home without a television set or, indeed, a telephone.   Decades later, she still enjoys these pastimes best in all the world.  

If any of the kits offered here catch your eye and make you want to try your hand at making a Marny-designed miniature, please check my Price List and place an order following the easy instructions provided there.
