Item details

The quote for this Monty Python cross stitch Spanish Inquisition pattern comes from their classic sketch. Michael Palin's Cardinal Ximénez is flanked by Cardinal Biggles (Terry Jones with the aviator goggles) and Cardinal Fang (Terry Gilliam) as they stumble through their badly rehearsed ferocity and terror. "Among our weaponry are such diverse elements..." It's one of their most popular and oft-quoted sketches.

You can see the quote in action here:

123 stitches wide by 95 stitches tall. Finished size will vary depending on the count fabric/canvas you choose. In 14 count aida, the project will be 8.8 x 6.8 in (22.3 x 17.2 cm) before it is finished. This will fit perfectly into a standard 8 x 10 inch frame. The photographed example was stitched in 28 count natural colored linen to give it a more antique look.

I have other Monty Python cross stitch patterns available including:

and watch out for those møøse bites:

Great pattern! I altered it a bit when I made it, since we wanted to add the three cardinals at the bottom where the text is.
