My Little French Obssesion

There hasn't been a whole lot of stitching going on since I finished Tuscany Town, I am now back at work so   even though that's good because I get a decent pay packet now, I don't have the time I use to for stitching!

I have how ever been working on the Multiplication Sampler, and this actually stitches up quite fast because you only use one colour.

Before-

After-



I have also brought another Chatelaine! The new addition is Lake Como

I already have some fabric - 32-count white sparkles from Country Stitch, so all I need now is some threads...

I have started a new project, it's called Je T'aime by Anette Eriksson, out of the February issue of the Cross Stitcher magazine.




Fabric 28-count Linen
DMC thread

It uses 3 strands of thread so uses up a lot of thread rather quickly, but looks great! I will be making it into a cushion (one day...)

I was having a clean out of my cupboards the other day and found all sorts of treasures I haven't seen for ages, like this little Eiffel tower charm which I brought in France a couple of years ago. I attached it to my phone but I find it rather annoying and I'm scared I'm going to catch it on something and break it, so I might take it off and do something else with it.

Lastly a picture of my favourite kitty in the whole world!
The Ginga Ninja

Happy stitching!

    1. Thanks Annie, using one colour does stitch up very fast indeed, this may be a record finish for me!

  3. Wonderful progress on the multiplication table and the Chatelaine will be lovley. I'd use the charm as a scissor fob or add it to the pillow, maybe? Your kitty is very pretty, even if he is upside down! LOL!
