I took the kit that I showed this morning and did a test run to see how successful the kit is. I do consider these kits to be starter packs and that they definitely need a little input from your own stash. Since some of the prints are larger, not every kit has the same motif in the print so there is no way a kit can be a 'paint by number' - if you are old enough to know what I'm talking about. I do my best to put a good assortment of values and colors in the kits. I used 196 of the 200 pieces in the kit for this sample and it isn't perfect. I would definitely go to my fabric stash and look for a better value/color piece for a couple places.
