Retro kitschy kit for you here -- a QUAIL family of three stitchery kit with all the original contents, ready for you to stitch it and kitsch up your wall with it! Love quail or maybe just birds in general? Or just like to make crafts from kits - especially vintage kits? Here's your chance to make your own earth tone bird family wall hanging from a vintage Deco Stitch Wall Hanging kit, designed by Harold D. Stapley, from Decorative Woods in Phoenix, Arizona! The pattern itself appears to result in a pretty minimalistic take on this bird family scene -- pretty cool and a bit unusual since so much yarn art can get too complex to complete reasonably and also becomes too busy for the eye to truly take in. This is a special kit, no doubt.

While this box has been opened and is a bit shabby, all of the kit contents appear to be intact and in awesome shape -- just your luck, they've never been used and are ready for you to get your creative juices flowing! Likely from the 60s or 70s, the kit contains everything you need (except no needle or scissors, but don't think it came with them in the first place). It includes a wooden frame, metal wall hanger, instructions, yarn, the cool quail pattern already imprinted on the canvas and attached to the frame back -- ready to stitch -- and a small, color picture on the top of the box to help guide you (note that there is some pink tones to this picture that we don't believe were meant to be there; the photo must have degraded over time since the yarn colors are much more earth toned than that). The stitching doesn't look too tough (straight stitch, outline stitch, and french knot), and the yarn colors are neat earthy tones, that, along with the off-white of the canvas background, would go well with today's modern decor shades, but still be a bit of a fun throwback on your wall.

So who in etsy-land needs a UNIQUE project? This would be a fun one and we can't wait to hear who takes the quail family home to make them come alive using their talented hands. Will that be you? Whoever it is, we just hope it gets up on the wall before hunting season -- this little quail family needs to take cover!

Your completed wall hanging will be approx. 16" x 12" x 1 1/4'
