At one time the owners of Chenonceau, François I and Claude of France left their mark: a salamandre and an ermine, their respective symbolic animals, which can be found on the pediment of the large fireplace in the Red Room.
This box to embroider in cross stitch is derived from the large pattern chart dedicated to the Chenonceau Château. The salamander is embroidered here on our cherry linen fabric with Tonkin thread colour 1002 (ecru). Embroidered in cross stitch over two fabric threads, this simple and amusing project is perfect for beginners.
It is also extremely simple to mount. The kit contains: - a piece of cherry coloured linen fabric, - a card of Tonkin embroidery floss n°1002 , - a cardboard disc and a piece of wadding, - a round tin and a decorative sticker for the edge, - pattern chart with all explanations for mounting. Size of the box: height 4cm - diameter 7.3cm. Presented in a cardboard Sajou box. Mounting instructions are included in the kit, but you can also find them inMadame Sajou’s Diary.
