In Celtic symbolism, the thistle stands for graciousness and nobility. Since the late 1400’s the prickly thistle plant has served as the royal symbol of Scotland
This lovely counted cross stitch kit from Camus International, Ltd. (Lansing, New York) features a thistle flower head within thorny leaves and a few downy seeds flanked by plaid bands. The design uses whole cross stitch, 3/4 cross stitch and back stitch
When completed, the stitched project will measure approx. 5 in. x 3 in.
The kit bears a 1996 copyright. Originally priced at $15.00.
As found in an opened needlework retailer’s zip-seal bag, the kit includes fabric, floss, floss organizer, needle, chart and instructions. This opened kit is sold AS IS.
The fabric is a very pale bluish-gray. The strands of floss appear intact; however, it is possible that some have been purloined
