This is an interpretation in cross stitch of the red fabric decorating the four-poster bed in the Five Queens’ Bedroom.
This room is named in memory of the two daughters and three daughters-in-law of Catherine de Médicis: Queen Margot, Elisabeth of France, Marie Stuart, Elizabeth of Austria and Louise of Lorraine. This project is derived from the large Museums and Heritage pattern chart dedicated to the Chenonceau Château. Size of motif: 185 stitches wide by 130 stitches high. When embroidered on 12 count (per cm) linen, the finished project measures 30.8 x 21.7cm. Size of finished cushion: 31 x 22cm. This kit contains:
- full-colour pattern chart printed on large A3 sheets of paper;
- 35 x 26cm of azalia coloured linen embroidery fabric;
- 2 Retors du Nord embroidery floss cards in colour 2028;
- 35 x 26cm 100% cotton "indienne" fabric in red and pink tones. Depending on our stocks, this indienne fabric may vary, but trust us, the end result will always be lovely. Presented in a lovely Sajou cardboard re-usable box. The embroidery pattern chart is also available here. Chenonceau château official website: click here.
