      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      If you are a cross stitch fan I would urge you to try this project,

      I ordered this cross stitch through www.sewandso.co.uk, which I have always found to be a very good website with competitive pricing. At present this kit costs around £42 and is beautiful on it's own, but works well hung alongside Lanarte's Lady with the Lilac Flowers.

      This comes as a kit which includes the fabric, threads and pattern. As with the Lady kit the fabric used is also cream linen which has a beige wash to provide a slightly more interesting background. The threads used are DMC and are in similar colours to the Lady kit. The size of this cross stitch is 39 x 49cm so this is a larger project to work on.

      I do find the use of a magnifier essential to stitch on linen but linen fabric gives a much better finish than canvas and this picture would be ruined on canvas. I would urge anyone to persevere with linen as once you are used to it, you will never go back to canvas.

      As with the Lady this is stiched with a single thread as a pose to two threads and this gives a lovely delicate and subtle finish to the piece. I stitched the Lady first and then the Bride, and have to say I loved sewing this project. It is by far my favourite cross stich I have done. The expression that has been captured in her eyes in amazing and I felt very proud of myself when I had finished as you would not believe that this picture was made of a series of little crosses.
