I have not begun stitching this kit yet, but I have completed many other Paraffle kits during the past year. The last one I completed was the Dragonfly, which was the first Intermediate kit. To do this, the stitch guide was essential, as I had never used any of the 10 stitches before! The guide is so detailed and helpful, I managed to complete the Dragonfly with a few practices of each stitch and on two or three occasions, on the real design, when I had to unpick and redo a stitch. There is ample thread included in these kits to allow you to do this. After my first attempt at all of the 10 new stitches, I was eager to practice and perfect them in another kit. I love the vibrant colours and design of this gorgeous Butterfly, so I placed an order for it. I can't wait to start sewing it! It appears to be more detailed than the dragonfly but with the stitch guide and all the useful blogs and videos on the Paraffle website, I feel well equipped. Sammy is always willing to help you out, if required, too ? The quality of the materials provided in the kit is very good and the detailed instructions really helpful. I would recommend any of the kits from Paraffle.
