This is a project and a challenge of a lifetime. I am selecting letters of family members first and enjoying the slow progress. The printing on the canvas is a great time saver. I had to smile at the comment that a child could do it but perhaps I’ve not met the child yet! Having done many lovely cushions, one turned into picture, it was time for a change. I hope it is one I can complete.
This kit is absolutely beautiful. It is expensive but you get what you pay for. The printing of the canvas is stitch perfect and the accompanying charts help where colours are a little hard to see. It is going to be a LOT of work, but I am happy to take my time knowing that I will end up with an heirloom quality piece. I would have liked a little more written advice about how to handle a canvas this size etc. However, a phone call to the company helped me. There are no instructions on how to finish the piece either, but I will again phone the company when I get to that stage. I would not recommend this for a beginner but for anyone comfortable with Victorian Cross Stitch or needlepoint in general it would be ideal. As I already said, the very exact printing is a huge help and something I have not had with other kits from other companies. A beautiful design and kit. Thank you.
A joy to open, lusciously coloured and beautifully packaged. The anticipation of hours of creativity. Many thanks.
