I wish I had more friends to give a framed copy to. It was easy to work and I couldn't put it down. I bought it for around $7.50 and framed it in a square matted black frame I bought for around the same price to give as a gift to the gardener in my complex. It looks like a million bucks. Everyone who has seen it marveled at how it looked.

I liked the fabric and style very much. Perhaps I shouldn't give it a five star quite so soon, since I've only washed it once, but the towel was nicer than expected, and I'll order more if they are still available.

I like the rooster, and I will stitch it for a neighbor - it's a neat rooster - very unusual.

This came in the mail and I was just thoroughly impressed with all the different gold thread types. The cross stitch is on a black background which makes it a little harder to sew for a person with over 40 eyes but the threads look just beautifl next to the black. In the online picture you can't really see all the book titles, but they are jus hilarious. I bought this to make for my sister-in-law, but even though I don't have a cat I'm thinking of getting it for myself!

Almost finished with this! My record for finishing any craft is .... close to nil. In my 40 years, I've only completed two okay crocheted hats and a purse that looked like roadkill. This has turned out pretty much like the picture. All I have left is some dark brown around the bottom and some of the black - both very difficult colors on a black background, so I recommend very good lighting if you take on this project. It also introduced me to the concept of "couching", when all projects I have started in the past just has backstitching. Youtube makes it look simple enough, I'm just not certain I have the patience. Anyhoots, purchased it as a sort of memorial to my mother.

This is not an easy pattern and since it is worked on black, I highly suggest using an Ott light to avoid eye strain.

When I asked my daughter-in-law to choose a Christmas stocking for me to make her new baby daughter, I was not excited when she chose counted cross stitch. [I promised myself after my last kit not to do any more of it.] But this kit take out much of the frustration with the pre-sorted, color-coded threads and the red, green and black chart is crystal clear, helping to see the demarcation line between parts of the design. All instructions are clear and well described.

I bought this to make it into a pillow for my new Portfolio Capri Moss Green Microfiber Arm Chair with Ottoman from Overstock.com. I have not made the kit yet, but after opening, it looks like it will be a perfect look for the chair when completed. I was hoping to find a crewe embroideryl kit to make something really fun for my living room, and this was exactly what I was looking for.

Nice bit of roving, look forward to needle felting with it.
Punch-needle embroidery is a hobby that dates back to ancient times. Many have done punch-needle embroidery as children, which they learned from watching their elders. Unlike other cross stitch and needlework projects, punch-needle embroidery requires punching thread through fabric for the formation of loops for a carpet-like appearance. About Punch Needle Embroidery: Embroidery has a long history. The miniature form of punch-needle embroidery, also referred to as bunka or Russian punch needle , had its start in the era of the ancient Egyptians. Read More
