Goodies are here! Yay!

I have been eagerly awaiting a parcel in the mail for a few months, now, and I am super happy to say that it has finally arrived today!

Back in May I was contacted by someone who had found me through this very blog (how cool is that?!)! They introduced themselves as someone who works for the company Riolis, and they asked if I had ever stitched any of their kits. I had heard of the company, but I had never gotten to stitch one of their kits.
I got to go through their catalog, and was offered one of their brand new kits that just came out. I have been waiting for it to be released so I can get mine, and it has finally arrived. I will get to be one of the first people ever to stitch this particular kit, and I can't wait to get started and share the stitchy journey with all of you!

Here are my pictures! This is the front of the kit, with the picture of what it will look like when finished.


Here is the back. I just love the neat, organized look of the thread. Plus, it feels softer that normal floss, too.

I plan on getting started on this kit very soon! (Must study and pass a certification test for work next month, first). This will be my focus piece and the only thing I work on until it is finished.

My question to my few readers out there... Have any of you ever stitched a Riolis kit before? What were your thoughts?

  1. Congrats on getting picked to try one of their kits Sasha. I have never stitched one but looks like you picked a great one.

  2. Oh I like how the threads are organized. A lot different than the pile of unsorted threads some give you. No I haven't heard of them before.
