I thought I wouldn't be attempting another tapestry this decade until I saw this great kit at the British Museum. It's perfect - lots of delicious colours, a great design and what sold it for me - is it is only 7 inches by 7 inches - whoopeee - I'll be able to do it on the way to work on the tube! What's more is it's by Grayson Perry depicting his 'childhood teddy bear and god of his imaginary world' named Alan Measles after the boy next door and the bout of measles he had in his childhood - marvellous!
The photograph does not do the kit justice, the colours are much more intense.
