THIS PIECE IS THE PERFECT FOR THE BEGINNING NEEDLEPOINTER.
Studying West African masks and textiles, the patterns, texture and colors, were the basis for this AFRICAN EVE design. I stitched the original primarily in the Diagonal Tent (Basketweave) stitch using silk & wool blends and cotton yarns of varying weights and textures. There are several straight and cross stitches such as Gobelin, Scotch and Smryna, as well as the Diagonal Tent.
INCLUDED IN THE KIT: spiral bound instruction book, the canvas with taped edges with the design drawn, and a storage bag. NO THREADS ARE INCLUDED IN THIS BASIC KIT. The original was stitched in 2002 and the silk & wool thread is no longer made, but suggestions for substitute threads are included in the instructions. Or have fun choosing your own threads and colors.
Design size is 8-1/4" square
The Ground Fabric is 14 count eggshell mono canvas.
When finished African Eve will fit in a Sudbury wood serving tray or it can become a lovely tasseled pillow, tote, pillow insert, or may be framed.

I love the pattern but I did think the yarn was included in my purchase. My impression was it was a kit. I am a bit disappointed so I am giving it a three star.

The color options are wonderful and there are lots of artistic designs to choose from for all skill levels. No sloppy cutsie stuff
