"The Yiv a Face cross stitch pattern is as cheeky as it is luscious and elegant. The gorgeous Jacobean-era inspired botanicals are enhanced by the shimmering copper Japan Threads and copper beads scattered across the wreath. The text "Yiv a face like a skelpit erse" is a Doric Scottish insult, and translates to "You have a face like a smacked a$s." 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 021J (Copper) Japan Thread #7, as well as one pack of Mill Hill 03038 (Antique Ginger) size #11 seed beads. You will also need sewing or embroidery threads that match the colour of the Kreinik threads for couching -- DMC 21 embroidery floss will work for the Copper Japan Thread."
