Heart of Eleanor Description


Heart of Eleanor reflects the beads, pearls and overall style of my portrait of Eleanor of Aquitaine. It is like a small sampling of Eleanor herself and a good introduction for people who have not yet stitched Eleanor.


The heart is approximately 4.5" wide x 4.25" tall and is stitched on a piece of soft ivory (color) congress cloth 8" x 8".


The threads are mostly Soie d'Alger, with one Planet Earth thread, one floss and a Kreinik braid. The stitches reflect the ones I used on Eleanor: mostly traditional needlepoint patterns and a bit of overstitching.


I confess, I love this heart because of the colors. I love these particular blues and purples with touches of gold.


The instruction booklet is 17 pages long, plus a title page and a color copy of my finished heart.


The instructions booklet does not include instructions for assembling the heart (I leave that job to a professional finisher).


Paper Needle Folder with Beading Needles and Thread $12.50 including shipping.


I thought it necessary to offer needles I know will work with the pearls I use so often, so I have made a folder with Queendom Website's Logo on the cover. It has two each #10. #12 and #15 beading needles in felt and a spool each of Nymo thread '0' and '00' included.


$12.50 includes shipping.

Below: the threads for Eleanor's Heart include 8 colors of Soie d'Alger,

1 floss, and one spool of Kreinik braid.

The Beads include tiny pearls, gilded brass bead caps and purple Czech beads.
