Original price was: $ 9.95.Current price is: $ 7.95.

This project fits in into a standard 12’x16′ or 30×40 cm frame.

This blackwork temperature map features a view of a gothic cathedral with colored stained glass windows. Gargoyles, pigeons, angels – and weeping angels – witness Quazimodo holding Esmeralda in his hands.

The stained glass windows represent months, a window each. A window is divided in several sectors (28, 30, or 31) and you only need to stitch one sector of a window per day.

The chart shows all windows in the same color, as you will be selecting a color depending on the temperature, or your mood.

The top three windows are for January, February and March,

The first column is for April, May and June, from top to bottom.

The second column is for July, August and September, from top to bottom.

The third column is for October, November and December, from top to bottom.


The listing includes one chart that can be applied for both white and black canvas, with some of the floss colors replaced.

The floss is from the DMC Light Effects collection, but you may use the same floss numbers without the E prefix for regular stranded cotton


Color schemes:

Original: E898 dark oak for the walls, E310 black for the window settings.

Original on dark canvas: substitute E898 Dark oak with E746 cream; substitute E310 black with E940 glow in the dark.

Note: you may also stitch walls and window settings in regular cotton, for example 310 black on white canvas, and use Light effects only for the windows, this will create a nice contrast of rough surface of the walls and glass of windows. On black canvas, you may stitch the walls AND the window settings in E940 glow in the dark.

The pattern will look great with any color scheme, so you may use the floss you have left and black or white for the background.
