Cross stitch is such a perfect hobby for Virgos. They love to do things well, are highly organised and very detail oriented. Sociable, friendly, polite and fascinated with human nature, Virgo's biggest pleasure is to help people - in fact their kindness, understanding and loyalty is renowned (think Mother Teresa!). Virgo is symbolised by the virgin, which represents purity - good food, good health, nature, an orderly home, culture and of course excellent taste in soft furnishings are essential for this lovable zodiac sign.
The large kit is worked with one strand of Appleton Brothers tapestry wool in counted cross stitch on Zweigart 7 h.p.i. canvas. The small kit is worked with 2 strands of Appleton Brothers crewel wool in counted cross stitch on Zweigart 10 h.p.i. canvas. The design is worked from the easy-to-follow colour chart provided.
Working with tapestry wool on the larger 7 h.p.i. canvas (large size) gives a beautiful chunky, hand-made finish. The crewel wool worked on the 10 h.p.i. (small size) gives an elegant, smoother finish
