Cross Stitch kit review

Yiota from Yiota's XStitch had emailed me asking to review one of her cross stitch kits and then posting on my blog. I was honored to do so. The kit came in 2 weeks ago and I was sick the first few days so couldn't do it.  I have a lot to blog today so wanted to let Yiota know that I love the kit. The pattern is in large print so it is very easy to see the symbols for stitching. The floss is already wound on bobbins for easy use. I asked for evenweave. Her kits are in aida and 28 ct evenweave. The instructions are very easy to read even for a beginner. There are just 2 very minor things and no big deal but being honest in my review. 1 is the picture of the design is slightly blurry but not very much. I have problems taking my own pictures lol. The 2nd thing is the fabric wasn't cut evenly on one side so I will just fix that before I begin stitching it. Like I said 2 very minor things. I highly recommend checking out her site and ordering from her. Oh and very fast delivery. Her business is in the UK and I am in western NY. She mailed it on a Monday and I received it that Saturday. That is faster than some services I get from online stores IN the US. Please go check out her site as she has a lot of themes to offer.


Oh and I don't have to stitch this up any time soon. She just wanted me to review the kit. But since it is a cute little snowman then it will fit into my stitching sometime this year :-)

It is darling, Shelleen. I got my kit quickly too, and my review was also almost all positive. (The only thing wrong was that the fabby smelled like Gain, which I hate, lol. Not something she did, but the fabby manufacturer. Otherwise, it was lovely. Pic was good, and chart clear as day.)

Love your jewelry - and your kitty and it looks like you've really got a lot done on Sunny. I think she's my next one of those SALs for me to concentrate (along with this years).

Very cute snowman. I have heard very good reviews about the site/kits. I will have to add to my wishlist.
