A Late Stroll

Last week I received one of the lovely cross stitch kits from Yiotas Xstitch . Yiota has asked me to review the kit and I will keep you updated on my progress. 

 It came beautifully packed with all the threads pre-wound onto bobbins.  It uses Madeira thread which is lovely and soft.  The chart is printed onto silky A3 paper and the symbols appear very easy to read and the legend/information sheet is on a separate A4 sheet.  The kit come with 14ct aida, normally when I get a kit I swap the aida for linen but for this review I will stick with the aida.  You also get a needle.

I'm looking forward to starting this and it will be so nice not having to sort out all the threads first.

If you would rather have charts then  cross stitch kits Yiota also sells just the charts which can be brought as either a download or a printed chart sent by post.  The charts have Madeira and DMC thread numbers so if you get just the chart you can choose which thread brand you want to use.

 Here is a better look at the picture on the front of the kit, I would love to get it finished by Christmas but I think it may take a bit longer.
