cross stitch kits


A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a lovely lady by the name of who owns a  company based in the U.K. She is new and working to get her company's name out there. She asked if I would review one of her kits - any kit that I chose. I responded that I would be delighted.

With very quick service! I received this wonderful kit in the mail - Seaside Lighthouse.

The kit was beautifully put together. Can you imagine - all the threads came prewound on bobbins!!! How cool is that.
She offered the option of evenweave or aida and that I really liked. I much prefer evenweave.
The pattern is nice and large and easy to read. At my advanced age (approaching 60) I need good clear print.

Am I pleased with the kit. You bet!! Would I purchase from her? YES!

I am excitedly waiting. My son, DIL and two grandsons will be arriving in San Diego tomorrow. I will be there with my arms wide open looking for some grandkid hugs. We have a busy and exciting two weeks planned. Will keep you posted.

I will check for any frogs in San Diego and remind them they love the beach and sand and really want to stay there.!
Until next time

That is really cool. If her floss comes prewound, that is even better!

I am blown away that the bobbins are prewound and you got a choice of fabrics. Wow! I will definitely check out her website. Thanks for sharing.

Enjoy the grandkids! (Yes, the beach is a great place for frogs.)

Yes it looks like a good kit! So nice to see the threads prewound...that is always a chore when the threads are loose.
And of course a lighthouse...hahaha
Have fun with the kids!
