Seen on old churches, cathedrals, castles and stately homes, Gargoyles are fantastical creatures carved in stone, designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of the building to prevent rainwater eroding the building's mortar. The spout usually exits through the gargoyles' mouth and the gargoyles themselves take the form of monsters or beasts, or otherwise ugly forms of faces.
This design features a collection of creatures (and yes, one is unfortunately picking his nose!), and once stitched, this piece can be made up into the intended mini cushion, or frame it for your wall and these Ghastly Gargoyles will greet your guests.
Only whole cross stitch is required to stitch this design, with backstitch needed for the facial details.
This counted cross stitch kit includes: 14HPI white aida fabric, ready-sorted DMC Stranded Cotton Threads on a card sorter, needle, backing fabric, b&w symbol chart and full instructions (cushion filler not included).
Design size: 5¾" (14.7cm) square.
