Arezzo 2014 - semi-kit
The semi-kit version of the lovely picture made by Nora Corbett for our eight Festa del Ricamo.
The kit includes:
• a free limited edition printed chart
• a cut of Zweigart's Summer Khaki linen
• Mill Hill beads

As it often happens in the making of little amazing hand-made artworks who had such few time for their realization (just like Nora Corbett had for creating this wonderful gift to all of us), a few slight imperfections might be present, and that, we are sure, will contribute into making this chart even more unique and precious!
1) the thread corresponding to the fully black square symbol (which, in the chart is, in the hair for example) is DMC 3371;
2) the first symbol of the list (a fully black triangle with right-angle down right) does not correspond to DMC 3371, but to DMC 3021; 3) in the chart key, DMC 165 and 211 both correspond to the same symbol: just remember that thread 165 is only used for the leaves while thread 211 is only used for the roses at the bottom of the chart.

Horrible! The chart is unreadable and so tiny. Beware!

Rating: [1 of 5 Stars!]

my nn scheme was 100% legible ... but I did not do so many stories and since I liked it so much, I embroidered it the same. just put some effort and maybe a whiff of fantasy ... and you will see that you will embrace it. my has come very well and I'm really happy! I think this scheme is like a little "jewel" to keep ... especially if it's autographed like mine !! (if you want to see it, browse in my blog www.lemiextte.overblog.it.) a hug Luly

I love a lot this design. The fact it is designed by hand is a plus.

I cannot even begin to describe the disappointment and pure rage I felt in receiving this 'kit' for Christmas two years ago. Every time I see this in my stash, I am once again reminded that my husband purchased this for me for Christmas 2015 and all in all, this was my most disappointing and rage inducing cross stitch purchase in my almost 30 years of stitching. Do yourselves a favor and don't bother! Not for $60.00 US!

Let's get to it, shall we? :)

1. Firstly, the chart. I do not think I can articulate the pure anger I felt when seeing the chart for the first time. I was excited because Miras are well produced and are easy to follow along. Imagine the horror to be confronted with a HAND DRAWN CHART that has been photocopied onto what appears to be quite expensive paper. It blows my mind that more thought and care was put into the PAPER of this chart rather than ensuring that the chart is LEGIBLE and easy to follow along. But instead, for $40.00 you receive a chart that is both poorly drawn and illegible.

2. The 'semi kit' portion consists of with 32 count Summer Khaki Linen and the beads. Never mind the fact that I could get the 'semi kit' items far cheaper here in the US. This is the way it was sold, so whatever. I was not happy about it, but if you want the chart, this is what you are getting.

3. Now for the shipping. $20.00 of that $60.00 was in shipping costs. While I realize that it came all the way from Italy, there wasn't even an OPTION for cheaper shipping. It came in a quite large cardboard box with ribbon and some doodads, which only added to the weight and shipping charges. For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE offer a cheaper worldwide shipping option. The shipping probably could have been cut in half without that stupid cardboard box and the doodads attached to it. $10.00 in a well padded envelope would have sufficed quite nicely.

If it had not cost the earth already, and returns of this item would have been accepted, I would have sent this back on the same airplane it arrived on. There is literally no excuse for ANY of this.

Unfortunately for me a disappointment, not as nice design but as legend ... my copy I showed it to other people, and frankly incomprehensible ... even with the lens can not distinguish color signs .. ..peccato I would gladly embroidered as always ... not fattibile.Spero that sooner or later arrivals a copy sharper a p ... probably my copy that has flaws.

On my correct copy by Nora the triangle (your item 2) it was corrected in 3031 and not 3021. I hope I can be of further help :-)
