The Mellerstain Parrots is taken from an original Arts & Crafts Firescreen within the embroidery collection at Mellerstain House in the Scottish Borders, reproduced by special permission from The Countess of Haddington. The full version of the firescreen is available as an advanced (Level 3) kit. Although the design is complete without any additions, I have left enough space so that, if you wish, you can embroider a date or signature between the acorn cups at the base of the design to celebrate a special occasion.
Design size: 26.25 x 25cms
Padded Satin, Satin Stitch, Closed Fly Stitch, Crewel Stem Stitch, French Knots, Long & Short as ‘soft shading’
