Awesome Kit I really love this kit. I got it about two years ago, and I’ve worked on it on and off in between other projects for that time. The thread colors are gorgeous, and the finishing effects are super awesome. That said, I *hate* back-stitching, and this chart has a lot of it (with metallic thread no less!), but it really does pull the chart together. The beading, for example, makes the snow flakes coming out of her hand look so cool!I would guess that this would be about a 200 hour project, given time estimates for other projects that I’ve completed in the past. I’m a fairly average stitcher (I tend to hit time estimates within an hour or so either way), and I spent about 75 hours on the (almost entirely half-stitch) background.

Lovely pattern, terrible thread I’m very big on complicated fairy patterns and this one did not disappoint. Very beautiful colors and use of extra details like French Knots and couching. The best part about the kit is that everything is included–except enough thread. I was very unhappy with the amount of thread included and the quality. The punch card sorting system seems practical at first but eventually ripped because the holes were not reinforced–especially when you have to trade out colors so frequently. Consistent breaking and fraying meant I had to use more thread then was provided and when I contacted customer service to request more (as it says you can in the kit) they gave me a hard time about it and sent me a conversion chart so I could purchase the DMC/Anchor equivalent. I should have just used DMC thread in the first place.When I eventually finish (about 3/4 of the way done) it will have been a worthwhile endeavor but my advice is to trade out the thread IMMEDIATELY for DMC or Anchor rather…
