A while back, I started seeing on other blogs a company called www.yiotas-xstitch.com,which sells all sorts of cross stitch kits...I had to look of course, because we stitchers know how it is....someone 'new' selling stash.
Well, let me tell you, I was impressed by what I saw.
The cross stitch kits that she sells are amazing!!! I contacted her about stitching for her & after several emails back& forth & many times of looking thru her website, I came up with the pattern I would like to do.
I chose Winter Sunset Cottage. She asked if I preferred aida or evenweave. I told her evenweave...I can stitch on both & do stitch on both, but mainly evenweave.
Well, back to the mail! The kit arrived today & wow!! She packages it so nicely. You can see that the envelope came from overseas, but is in great shape.
The chart, floss, fabric & needle are all packaged nicely. You can see from my pictures how it came to me today.
I am anxious to start this chart for several reasons. The first being, the picture reminded me of the cabin we stayed in last summer when we took our little 3 day getaway. (just picture it in winter of course, since there was no snow in July!!!!)
The next reason I am anxious to start it is the pattern itself. Most BIG projects like this have nearly 100 different colors in them & you are changing colors after every XXXX it seems. This chart has lots of large blocks of color.
So, now I just need to find someone who will let a stitcher have 'time' to promote their products...
