Basic Skills Necessary:

  • To be able to read and understand a counted cross stitch pattern, then using cross stitches make the picture

Pattern Description:

This lovely picture created from a picture by the artist John William Waterhouse, showing a beautiful woman, Marianna looking at herself in a mirror, the first picture shows you what it will look like as a cross stitch creation.
This is a professional computer generated chart, to be printed onto A4 sheets.
The chart is at nine stitches to an inch, so the symbols are not too small and easy to see.
Included with the chart is a symbol chart for DMC threads, that will give you as close a colour match as possible to the picture.
A printed picture on the front cover to give you as close a representation of the completed design.
Also included are the sheets for the thread organiser, which we suggest is printed out onto card to give the strength needed to hold the threads.
As well as the pages to tell you how much thread is required to complete this design, we hope this will help you to get started on your work.
Please note that this is a cross stitch chart and not a kit, so it does not include the material and threads.
This chart will be downloaded as a zip file which contains four PDF files, once received all you need to do is start printing, and away you go.
I am sure you will have many hours of pleasure stitching your own cross stitch creation.
