This saying is an Italian proverb ...and Oh how true!

I thought it a very appropriate quotation for a box to keep chess pieces in style and stitched it on the 28 count oatmeal evenweave with the variegated fairtrade threads in the kit.

You might prefer to use aida so there's the option of 14 count Rustico available, which would give you a very similar effect.

Like the other designs in this range, the chart only option costs £9. This allows you to choose your own thread colours ...and in the alternative view, it has been worked on 14 count Rustico aida using the DMC thread colours suggested there.

Whichever you choose, this is fun to stitch and makes a great gift for the chess player in the family!
