5 of 5 Cross Stitch - Girl Reading November 21, 2018
Reviewer: Karen C. from Manchester, MD United States  
I am thrilled with my recent purchase from Serenity Stitchworks!  My first grandchild is due in March of 2019.  This cross stitch will be our present to our daughter and son in law.  I have always loved this scene and now to be able to create a copy is wonderful.  Thank you for your support!

5 of 5 Lovely experience. November 23, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Scotts Valley, CA United States  
I was impressed with the extra care taken in providing not only the pattern but very clear directions for those people who might not be familiar with executing cross stitch.  

From selection, to downloading, to delivery, to viewing the pattern in its entirety... all was excellent.
