Dare to Design With Orna

On another adventure with Orna. This is a 6-month class where we design our own geometric piece! I’m sure that Orna will make the process fascinating and fun. We have own own private Facebook group.

I picked up the kit yesterday and it includes:

  • 45 threads (Soie Perlee, Trebizond, Kreinik 1/16 ribbon, Kreinik #8 & #12 braid, Planet Earth 6-ply silk, Silk Mori, Neon Rays, Gumnut Yarns, Needlepoint Inc Silk, Silk ‘N Colors, Waterlilies, and Watercolours) in wonderful colors. There were 3 or 4 options to choose from. They came in a 2-sided hard plastic box. Orna packages are always lovely. But, I wanted to spread them out to easily see them all.
  • 11 packets of beads in various sizes and colors
  • 3 pieces of canvas
  • 24 watercolor pens and 3 brush tips (again, I wanted to spread them out to easily see them all)
  • Desert Island Stitches, Vol 1 for small spaces (which I didn’t have and from skimming it today, it’s a great reference)
  • Grid paper, a notebook, packet of blank stock paper, and a ruler

I’ve enjoyed looking over everything and am excited for class to start soon! It all fits in 5 of the plastic, stackable trays except for the grid paper (from the Container Store). And, I have made room in a cabinet so I can get to it easily.

What a haul! I know it was costly, but still….. I’m looking forward to seeing your progress in this class. I was tempted by it, but just couldn’t justify when I have soooo much to do already!
