Cross stitch kit - Crossing the Couesnon in front of the Mont Saint-Michel - Museums and Heritage Collection

This complete cross stitch kit comes from the large pattern chart created by Frédérique Crestin-Billet evoking famous Bayeux Tapestry. It depicts the scene Crossing the Couesnon in front of the Mont Saint-Michel.
Size of motif: 200 points 89 points. If sewn on 12 count embroidery linen: 33,5cm x 15cm.
The story begins in 1063 or 1064, the first scene showing the King of England Edward “The Confessor”, who appears to be giving instructions to Harold, Earl of Wessex. According to some chronicles of the time, Edward had summoned Harold to go and inform William, Duke of Normandy that he should succeed him on the English throne.
The passage represented here on the left is Harold embarking for Normandy, falcon on the wrist and tunic raised to avoid getting wet. Note the men accompanying him with dogs and oars and the amusing detail of the legs giving an impression of the transparency of the water. On the right, the other boat shows that crossing the Channel was in all probability not very restful: the sail is blown outwards and one of the cords has come loose in the strong wind. Because of this storm, the boats are forced to land on the estate of Count Guy of Ponthieu, who threw Harold in jail with all his crew.
This kit contains:
  • full-colour pattern chart printed on a large 60cm x 29cm sheet of paper;
  • one 42 x 23cm piece of 32 count embroidery linen, colour sand;
  • 8 Laine Saint-Pierre cards in following colours: 2 x 422 and 450, 1 x 648, 762, 814 and 845;
  • a Sajou “Créé par moi” label (Made by me).
Presented in a lovely Sajou cardboard re-usable box.
The single embroidery pattern chart is also available.
In our Madame Sajou diary section, you will discover the secrets behind the creation of this chart, the second one in our Museums and Heritage collection.
