This was a wonderful piece to stitch. I loved it so much that I stitched it twice after a friend insisted on me giving her the first one. The stitches are challenging but fun and the end result is a beautiful piece. Debbie’s charts were so easy to read and so detailed that it made it a pleasure to stitch. I highly recommend this piece to all stitchers.

Just finished this design and a little sad it’s ended. It has a lot of new – to me – stitches and threads that make the design so interesting. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow and I can recommend it to any needlepoint stitcher.
