in need of some stitching time...

 After several quilt blocks, I was in need of some stitching time. This project is last year Stitch Me CLub by l'Atelier Perdu .

I started this project a while ago and had left part 2 unfinished when I picked up some quilting.... but that was before my New Year's resolution ;-) One project or part of a project at a time. So it was time to finish this part.

I chose the recommended threads and even gave a try to Natalie's suggestion : stitching it on 40-count linen in tent stitch. This is really tiny but sooooo nice. Not very creative you might say but I trust Natalie entirely and like her color palette very much. Moreover I really love miniature samplers.



Next time I'll work on this project, I'll do part 3 entirely and that means that Campagne Française part 2 and Reiko Kato's block 2 will be finished.

Until later,

    1. Oui Pati, sur un fil de trame au petit point (ou demi-point de croix), je ne suis pas sûr du terme exact...

  4. I've always found the smaller the stitch, the more a stitchery rewards you. Yours is looking wonderful.

  5. It's just lovely, David. I've been hankering to get out another cross-stitch. It's been a long while, yet there are some wonderful ones out there.

    Well done as always!

  8. Oh David, that's a very nice sampler you've been stitching! I would like to stitch this sampler for myself on Italian churchlinen (19 threads/cm, one over one) but when I tried to order the chart from L'Atelier perdu I found out that it's no longer available, sigh :-(
    I live in the Netherlands and my French is not good enough to write them a letter to ask them if there are other ways to buy the chart. Do you have a suggestion?

  9. No, Maria, I don't have a solution. These clubs are only available for a certain period of time. But the good news is that there will be another Stitch Me Club ;-)

  11. This is a wonderful pattern stitched in wonderful colors. Funny... as I also felt that it was about time do do some stitching again, I ordered a pattern and threads only just yesterday. Happy Easter to you and your family, David.

  12. Very nice stitching!
    I love the sampler, I haven't started it yet.
    But I certainly do that also on 40ct. 1 over 1.

    Have a Happy Easter, Evelyne

  16. Ah que je suis contente de vous redécouvrir avec des petits petits points tout ce que j aime mais en ce moment pas assez de belle lumière pour avancer mes petites croix et je n aime pas les lumières électriques..je n y prends pas assez de plaisir avec les couleurs faussées.heureusement je peux admirer les avancées des autres.. Douces fêtes de pâques
