Chart for Medieval "Fishes" needlepoint, plus instructions -1/12th scale dollshouse miniature

Description

I called this pattern the very original name of “Fishes”.

It was originally designed to fit the fire-screen kit sold by "A & G Sledge (Miniatures)", but I think it could just as easily be stitched as a picture or a cushion for any dollshouse.

I have based it on a needlepoint design I found in the book "Traditional Needlepoint" by Frances Kennett and Belinda Scarlett (published by Shelton Books, London, 1998, ISBN 1 85029 318X) which, in turn, was inspired by embroidery and needlework found at Blair Castle.

As this was originally designed for 1/12th scale dollshouses the picture is of the finished item in a fire-screen frame which went into my own house.

The instruction sheets include two sizes of design: the first (as shown) has a finished size of 1 1⁄2” x 1 1⁄8” (when stitched on 40 count silk gauze – 60 sts wide x 46 sts high); the second has a finished size of 1¼” x 1¼” (50 sts x 50 sts). On this count material, only one strand of thread is used and it is stitched in half-cross or tent stitch rather than full cross-stitch.

Both DMC thread numbers and Anchor equivalent numbers are included with the charts but only the DMC colour names are included. (N.B. Anchor thread colours may vary slightly from the DMC ones used in the design shown.) The design is worked in half cross-stitch or tent stitch throughout.

This is one of three designs I have created so far to this size and scale: the other two are a Sunflower pattern in the style of William Morris and a silhouette of a well.

I have not given quantities of threads required, as this is quite minimal for the intended size given, and would depend on the material count used. On lower count materials it may be better to use 2 strands of thread and full cross-stitch. I see no reason why this could not be stitched on almost any count fabric, including Aida, although I haven't yet tried it myself.

I would appreciate any feedback on the designs or the instructions and if there is anything that you would like me to have a go at designing then please let me know. I can't promise that I will do it but I do enjoy a challenge.
