This design for a boxtop is the first in the "Secret Message" series.   It is stitched on 32 count antique white Belfast linen, using Dinky-Dyes silk threads **, Kreinik #4 braid, Kreinik cord, Mill Hill beads etc.   Stitch count is 71 x 71, giving a finished piece of approx 11.4cm square.
This design, which is suitable for those who are new to speciality embroidery stitches, also teaches how to "sequence" over-dyed threads.   It incorporates flaps which, when opened, reveal a secret message.
The 6 page booklet includes detailed finishing instructions, helpful hints and illustrations of special stitches used.
** The Dinky-Dyes silk thread pack needed for this design is also available from HollieStitch.
