The Jacobean-era inspired botanical wreath of the Gypit Hoor cross stitch pattern holds a secret -- the true cheekiness of the text. The Doric Scottish insult "Gypit Hoor" actually translates to "crazy whore," but of course you could create your own translation for those who are more sensitive like children in the home (or your parents, or that one "special" friend who takes offence to everything...). "Great woman" might be a good fake translation if needed .... The pattern comes with a full black and white pattern and a full colour pattern. Model stitched over two on Zweigart 28ct Cashel linen (Antique White). A link to a tutorial for couching is included in the pattern. ADDITIONAL MATERIALS NEEDED: 1 spool of Kreinik 002J (Gold) Japan Thread #7, as well as one pack of Mill Hill 00557 (Old Gold) size #11 seed beads. You will also need sewing or embroidery threads that match the colour of the Kreinik thread for couching -- 865 Gutermann polyester sewing thread will work for the Japan Thread.
