I follow their progress with great enthusiasm and I am looking forward to see their finished pictures. I want to share a few of the reviews, so grab yourselves a cup of tea (or coffee) and visit their lovely blogs below:

New christmas cross stitch designs

It's early October and it is so hot here in UK, it is just unbelievable. We didn't had a brilliant summer as we had a lot of rain but it seems summer came late this year. This weekend I stayed in and designed new Christmas cross stitch designs. Now that I am thinking about it, I should have gone to the beach but it was so crowded that I don't think I would have enjoyed it.

Anyway, here are a few of the new designs below which can be found here: Christmas cross stitch. Let me know what you think:

New cross stitch

I had a lovely couple of weeks designing new cross stitch kits and patterns. I have updated the collection of Dega cross stitch with the famous ballet dancers.
I also updated the collection of Christmas cross stitch kits, who doesn't love robin birds and cute animals with a Christmas theme?



And finally I added two egyptian cross stitch kits and patterns of the egyptian eye and the famous Isis.


Hope you drop by my shop and browse around.

One more review and podcast

The lovely Kelly reviewed the Tea time cross stitch kit. I love her review and take all her comments very seriously in order to improve my kits. She has also created a podcast which is more detailed.

I am sorry that Royal Mail destroyed the packaging, however please note that if something similar happens to your orders, we will replace it immediately and complain at Royal Mail.

Anyway, if anyone wants to drop by Kelly's blog and check out the review here it is: http://ppkart.blogspot.com/

Cross stitch kit review on ebay

My best friend bought two cross stitch kits from ebay last week and she had the most awful experience. It made such a great impression to me that I wanted to write a review and share this with my readers.

First of all, she found some fantasy fairies cross stitch kits really cheap! And when I say cheap I mean extremely cheap, each kit was £9! She couldn't resist and bought them. When she receive them she wasn't too impressed but because she liked the designs she decided not to return them and she started stitching them. The threads were non-brand threads and they were mixed all together which was time consuming to unpick them and manage them all in a card organiser (which she bought separately). The chart was of a poor photocopy (or a poor print out) and the photo of the finished design was the actual picture not the finished work or at least a simulation of the finished stitched work.

Besides all that, she started stitching one of the two kits. Half way through she run out of threads and also she realised that the fabric was too small so there was not enough aida to actually finish the design. When she contacted the seller, he refused to send her more threads and new fabric. He even refused to take the kits back or refund her.

My friend researched the kits on internet and found out that the actual designs belonged to the famous artist Nene Thomas. She contacted Nene to ask if she could suggest other cross stitch sellers. To her surprise, Nene never gave permission to the particular ebay seller to sell her designs which means the ebay seller was in fact an illegal seller.

Well, my friend has actually lost her money and she can't complete the kits with small aida and not enough threads. But the good thing is that ebay actually suspended the "nasty" seller. Be aware of very cheap kits and read the ebay description very carefully. Also check at the photo provided. Hopefully this review will help other ebay buyers.

SAL - tree of life

Our SAL seems to be going very well. Emma has finished the first of the 4 pages and it looks fantastic (see photo below). She decided not to stitch the background, I think the design will look stunning with the background but still her work is fab so far. Looking forward to see it finished!

SAL and update on the tree of life

Unfortunately my cross stitch for the tree of life is not going so well. I have been very busy with work, making new designs, introducing new artists therefore my stitching has stayed behind.

I have though organised an SAL (stitch-Along) for the tree of life and I had a very good response. So a few ladies will stitch with me the tree of life. No doubt I will stay behind a bit as I am busy with work but will try to keep up :-)

I will upload photos of the SAL progress soon.

Update on Klimt

It's been days since I started the tree of life by Klimt. I had some downfalls. My computer decided to stop working, over heat or something like that. So I was left 4 whole days without a computer. Hubby who is in IT tried to fix it but no luck, my beloved imac is gone. So I am using a spare mac now until I decide what I am getting next.

So you would think I had plenty of spare time to do some cross stitch. Yes I did but I was too stressed about my imac that I have done so little stitching. I have done some work on my cross stitch kit but not a great deal though. I will upload a pic soon once I find my cable :-)

Klimt cross stitch

I have finished two of my cross stitch projects and I was looking for a new one to start. I wasn't sure if I wanted to start a small or a large design. I had an idea, maybe leaving stitching aside for a while and paint something nice for my living room. I love Klimt so I could try to paint his tree of life which I love, it wouldn't be so hard to paint it, I think. I must say that I am a self - learner on painting and I am not great, I just like to paint.

Then I had another idea, how about to stitch the tree of life instead of painting it? That's it, I made up my mind. Decision made. So here I am, today I am starting stitching the tree of life by Klimt. I don't know how long it will take me as I am a slow stitcher but I am certain it will look great when finished.

Hope everyone is enjoying their stitching projects.
