This is not a kit. This is not a completed product. This is a cross-stitch pattern. This purchase is for a paper chart and contains no floss or fabric. This chart was inspired by part of a William Morris textile. This design was created from the works of the artist William Morris. William Morris 1834 -1896 was an English textile designer, artist, writer, socialist and Marxist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. The Arts and Crafts Movement was a British, Canadian, Australian and American design movement that flourished between 1880 and 1910. It was instigated by the artist and writer William Morris in the 1860s and was inspired by the writings of John Ruskin. It influenced architecture, domestic design and the decorative arts, using simple forms and a medieval style of decoration. It advocated truth to materials, traditional craftsmanship and economic reform.

I am disappointed at the waste of time and money, and will not be buying from this company again.
I haven't purchased this chart but would like to chime in to address the negative one. I just purchased these two charts and began to stitch the first one:
When I was looking at Orenco Originals, it was really hard to decide what pattern to get, there are so many gorgeous ones. I love Alfred Lord Tennyson's forlorn poem, The Lady of Shalott, and I've been looking for a vivid peacock design exactly like this one for years. Looking at the palette of flosses for both projects, and having started one of them, I find the...
This counted cross stitch takes months to complete. I suggest taking the chart provided, cut into sections, place on copier and set print to 129%. I then use a highlighter to mark off completed stitches. Much easier to work. So far I am pleased with the outcome.
