I was looking for some smaller cross stitch designs to use on a Christmas stocking (hard to find). This is a very nice kit - everything included. The colors are nice and it's a nice size. This will work out well for use on a Christmas stocking and obviously for an ornament.
This book I bought for my wife who does extraordinary works with stitches. She LOVES it and believes that this is the "bible" for those who love embroidery or cruel works. It is definitely on top of her favorite books! Thanks Overstock for making me the hero to my wife!
This is a well made kit with nice instructions and materials. I probably wouldn't do it as a first counted cross stitch project because of the type of cloth used. I guess a beginner could use all the materials in the kit but get some Aida cloth to stitch on so the holes are more apparent and the warp and weft threads don't move. I am using magnifying glasses from Sam's to see the holes better because I think I need glasses now. The cloth is very nice quality and the ornate pattern and small size make it a real art piece. Even someone that doesn't like cross stitch would appreciate the beauty of this project. My husband is color blind and even he thinks it looks great :)
