You can see the kit I chose here. And this is the link to her main cross stitch kits site. Her site is easy to navigate, and I love the pattern I chose. (I would love to convert the background to purple, but it just doesn't seem right. So, alas, it will be brown and orangey colors. I do like the orangy shades though. Pretty.) The colors seem very true to life. They're Maderia, which I've never used before, but they feel very soft. (Yes, I was stroking them. I can't help myself.) I compared several of them to the piccy, and they look perfect. They're all wound up on cardboard bobbins already, and labeled with the number to make sorting easier. Yes!!! And the fabby is a lovely, soft fabby. It's a twenty eight count evenweave, as I requested, and it's wonderful. It smells though. (Not in a bad way, for most of you. Whoever washed the fabby washed it in Gain. Ick!! I'm sure most of you would love it. It's just one of my least fave detergents. And yes, as a matter of fact, I AM persnickety.) It feels great though, so I'll overlook the smell thing. (The floss doesn't smell. I checked, lol.)
Now on to the chart. It consisted of several pages. Two of them are about the size of two eight and a half by eleven sheets, laid out side by side. They're folded in the middle. (I've heard this size of paper referred to as A4, but am not sure what that means.) They have not been folded and refolded so that the center is hard to read. The symbols are okay. There are a couple of them that are similar, and are in the same area, which I don't like, but there is only one that I think would be confusing. Arrows pointing to different corners of the square. So that's a definite plus. I can sort of see the shape of the wolf in the chart, which is normal for me. I can't see all the details, but I can see the outline. The other pages include a page of instructions for cross stitch and a page of piccy and details about the kit. Name, size, etc.
This is a totally new brand for me, and as such, I was excited to look over the materials. It looks like a winner to me. I love the pic of this chart (I love wolves, but only have one pattern of them, so I quickly took this opportunity to get another), and I can't wait to see how it stitches up. (Of course, I will have to wait a while for this one, but still, I have it and can start it whenever. Yay!!!) Good job Yiota, of putting together a quality kit. Hope you're all dreaming sweet dreams tonight!
