I love the rhodendron kit so much I bought a second one! The vibrant colors make the design come alive against the cream background, which is large enough to develop an even tension and rhythm. Then the greenery gives you a chance to use vertical stitching, but is simple to practice. I like to do the pistils/stamens before I do the lovely pinks and magentas as they're easier to see before they are stand alone stitches. However, I'm careful not to work them so tightly they'll disappear in the beautiful blooms. A beginning stitcher can both enjoy this kit and learn new techniques!
The colors are gorgeous, and look just like the rhododendrons in my front yard! Love the new packaging and canvases!
The colours for this kit are really vibrant and it’s a beautiful design. A lot of the colours are similar in shade so you need good light to work in. The kit had everything I needed with plenty of wool to complete the project.
Just received the Rhododendron kit. Love the new printing process for the canvas. Allows more accurate stitching without having to refer to the chart continuously.
20 years ago I did several Elizabeth Bradley designs which are still in use in my home I am so happy to be able to enjoy cross stitch once more and am very pleased with this design
