This year I came across Deen Creations by a lovely local sister: Lelya Amatullah. She has turned her love of cross stitch into a business selling cross stitch kits and personalised gifts.
I decided to try out one of her cross stitch kits, thinking it would be easy and take no time at all. I got this one to try and keep my hands busy and my mind occupied whilst I was pregnant. I managed to get the pattern wrong in the first attempt and had to start again. On the second attempt I managed to get a quarter done. I still have a way to go, but hardly ever have my hands free now to finish it, so I am hoping I can get Little Lady to help me complete this. Luckily there is a generous amount of thread, enough to accommodate my mistake.
In all, I think this is a lovely kit and a really nice product. It's not as easy as I thought and will take a bit of care and patience to complete. I think this would be nice to complete and hand in my in-laws room for when they are back in a few months (Crafty Muslimah Sister Washi also tried out one of these and completed hers, you can see her review and the finished cross stitch here).
