I got this kit as a new cross stitch project and so far, I'm happy with this purchase. The design and colors are really exactly as pictured. I tend to have short attention span with projects, so the fact that this pattern is not too big is perfect for me.
I wanted to make tissue box covers that matched the color my living room and kitchen were painted so I could purchase any boxes that were on sale and they would not "stand out." I designed 2 using 7 different stitches which are unique. Some of those stitches, I had never seem before bhut dirrection were easy to follow. I am also planning on using a textured stitch that I saw in the book to make mattes for a few 7 x7 completed needlepoint birds. but did not get framed and matted due to the cost. Using this book, I was able to determine stitches to use that would make a unique matted look on the completed canvas. Some of these stitches do not need plastic canvas, but can be used for textured backgrounds on regular 10 point canvas.
