      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I really enjoyed working on this cross stitch.

      I ordered this cross stitch through www.sewandso.co.uk, which I have always found to be a very good website with competitive pricing.

      This comes as a kit which includes the fabric, threads and pattern. The fabric used is cream linen which has a beige wash to provide a slightly more interesting background. The threads used are DMC. The size of this cross stitch is 20 x 30cm, so is not too big a project.

      As this is stitched on to linen, I would say it is essential to have a magnifier as linen takes a bit longer to 'get your eye in to', but does provide a far superior finished product. I think once you are used to stitching on linen you will not go back to canvas, as it feels very hard to touch and does not provide the same quality.

      The design is a Sara Moon one and the kit is by Lanarte and is one of their Romantic time collection.

      This is a slightly different cross stitch project as it is stiched with a single thread which is unusual as the norm is two threads and the single thread gives a lovely delicate and subtle finish to the piece. The colours are also quite subtle due to the single thread and I have to say that has been one of my favourite things to stitch as the finished article is beautiful.
