    Hello everyone,
    I have just joined and this is my first post!

    I would like to ask your advice please.....

    I have fallen in love with Dimensions item...
    13139 HUMMINGBIRD & FUSCHIA CROSS STITCH KIT
    the designer is Lena Lui and I really want to get it

    BUT
    its a "stamped" cross stitch kit but I have never worked one before, I am used to working with aida.

    a couple of friends on another forum say that stamped kits are a real let down and difficult to do, with the finished item not reaching their expectations, they also say there's no chart like with regular cross stitch???

    therefore, I would like to ask your advice / opinion, if you have ever done a stamped kit please let me know how you got on especially if anyone has done this particular kit

    many thanks

    When I was young and inexperienced in the ways of cross stitch, I did a stamped cross stitch kit, and was so disappointed in the finished result. However, if you really want to do it, then go for it. If its the kit you've been lookin for all your life, then you will be happy with it, whatever it turns out like. Just follow your heart!

    Thank you Barbara ;o)
    I noticed when browsing through some dimensions charts online that a chart I am doing now is also available as a stamped kit! so I have my fingers crossed because I have emailed Dimensions in the hope that the same design I have fell in love with is available as chart only, like the one I am doing now!
    I will see what they say but thanks for the encouragement!

    Personally i have never done a stamped cross-stitch, I like the feeling of starting with blank aida/lined and then seeing the picture i have done from scratch. But thats just me. If you like it, go for it!!:)
