After finishing Alphabets à... I decided to finish yet another 'red' project. This tiny sampler is called 'Abc aux oiseaux' and is from 'Miniatures au point de croix' by Françoise Prax. I started this last year and came across it nestling between the pages of the book. It is stitched 1*1 on 40ct white linen with HDF OMG red 1149. The needle is a John James size 28 which should give you an idea how tiny this sampler really is! I am undecided how to finish this but I am leaning towards a pinkeep using Clover Aplique pins painted with a red nail polish the same shade as the thread. I found another half-stitched tiny sampler inside the book called 'Coeurs d'oiseux'. This one is stitched 1*1 on 35ct white Brussels linen with AVAS 2925 so will obviously be a little easier to finish. I will work on this later today and then, I think, an Easter project but shall I stitch Sew Easter or something else?
Before I forget, is anyone having problems uploading pictures to Blogger? I was using the old post editor and kept getting the message 'Server Error - The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request. Please try again in 30 seconds.' I have now changed to the new post editor and I was able to upload the picture immediately.
Sew Summer is now charted but may need a little tweaking. Sew Quaker and Sew Peacock are both charted but need to be stitched.
Thanks for visiting
