I giving this 5 stars even though I did not complete it it because if I had the talent to complete such a high level kit it would have been beautiful. I should have known it was going to be very detailed but I thought I would try and I am not at that level. But this is a very beautiful piece of work and anybody who could complete this project is very artistic. So it's not really the kits fault I over order my ability
I love how this turned out! It took a while so it isn't for the faint of heart! I made stockings for my own girls and now purchased two different Dimensions Needlepoint kits for my granddaughters This kit is much easier because, unlike the Happy Snowman, there are not a multitude of colors in the sweater, for instance. Needless to say it has been decades since I attempted this. Those that I made over 30 years ago were wool yarn, and these are embroidery floss which is more difficult to work with but the results are stunning. Because it is floss, it was frustrating to separate the strands of thread. It took hours but I became proficient at it and separated them all up front. Based on other reviews you will get better coverage and should separate. I I lined the stocking and purchased other backing to give it a richer look. I also would have preferred the name to be stitched on the stocking rather than just placed on top of the finished work. For that reason along it gets four stars instead of five.
