This CXS is unique as it's done on a navy blue cloth background as opposed to the traditional off-white. It's not super EASY, but the end product looks great. This one requires a little more patience than your average baby CXS, but it's well worth your time.

If you're fairly new to CXS and you're looking to up your game this is a good one to try with. There aren't TOO many colors to work with and you get to try some interesting techniques, but nothing above a solid beginner level.

On your wall it looks kinda wonky close up, but from a distance of five feet or more you totally can't tell it's not a painting. Very classy.

This is the Mini Kit - mini does not mean easier! There are a lot of colors in this mini kit, and because so many of the stitches are half stitches and because the finished product is very small in size, it is necessary to change thread frequently. Also, if you are like me, I keep the back very tidy by running the thread under stitches if I move more than 3 blocks away, so with this kit I find I spend half of my time just working with the back stitching! On the bright side, the finished product is really beautiful. This pattern is also available in full-size, so if you don't like half-stitching or changing your thread constantly, consider buying the full version instead!

I just completed stitching this project and it turned out quite nice. I did not run out of thread for any of the areas. It was a quick(er) project because the majority of the stitch work is half stitches. The backstitching was a pain, but there is not a whole lot of it, so you just have to power through. The project is 5x7 and is SOLID stitching. There is no blank Aida material once completed. Looks beautiful framed.

Pattern Name: Girl At The BeachVerified Purchase
I recently started to stitch this kit, and I am not happy with the thread colors, especially the skin tone colors. The little girl's back, legs and upper arms are very dark, not as shown on the package. I am considering ripping out the skin areas I already stitched and replacing with other thread. This is a very unusual problem in my experience of counted cross stitch.

Update December 16 - I have continued to stitch this kit, and I have to say that the entire scene uses darker thread colors than shown in the picture. It is still attractive but not nearly as much as the original depiction. For example, the sky appears like fluffy clouds in the picture with the kit, but in reality using the thread that was supplied, it looks like a storm is coming. I will finish the piece, but I might have to leave the finished piece out in direct sunlight for a couple months to get it to fade down to a better color shade.

Good choice to kill time. The pic is beautiful. But takes a while to finish it. Great choice for cross stitch fans!

I am really impressed with this kit. Even though I am halfway through the project, it is looking wonderful. To top it off, the floss comes pre-sorted for you which is of course great and also saves time. And the instructions are very clear and easy to follow.

The picture does not do justice to the vibrant colors. And Dimensions always has a quality kit and easy to read map.

The needle included with kit broke. Floss had a tendency to desperate and fray. It's a beautiful project I wouldn't recommend doing it without a magnifier when adding the backstitching.

I got this as a Christmas present for my grandma (she has a cabin by the lake!) and the size is PERFECT (5x7). The colors are nice and I LOVE the little boat at the dock.
