Stitch painted by hand on 18 count canvas. Design area 6 7/8″ x 3″. When finished box will be 3″ diameter x 2 5/8″ tall. Threads include those as shown. Gloriana 12 ply silk, Soie D’Alger silk floss, Entice, Trebizond silk floss, Lorikeet strand able wool and Kreinik braid. Kreinik braid looks nice with the round gold hinge. Why Lorikeet? Ireland is a land of sheep so it seems fitting to include some wool. Its easy to divide the pattern into different sections thus enabling the piece to be more interesting to stitch and more interesting results by changing the thread texture to help enhance or play down certain areas.
