Another French red sampler

Click on the picture for a closeup view

Thank you to all those who left 'get well' comments, sent emails and e-cards - much appreciated! I am feeling a lot better now that the antibiotics have started to work and to prove it I had a new start yesterday of yet another little French red sampler. I know this pattern was a freebie but I have no idea of where I found it - maybe someone recognises it? At the bottom of the alphabet it has the initials LV and the word Paris. I have no idea if the stitcher was LV who lived in Paris or if the name was indeed LV Paris. I am using AVAS Soie d'alger 2925 on 48ct blanc cassé Gander linen - two of my favourite combinations of fabric and floss.

I received a RAK from Simone of Soed Idee this morning - a skein of Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe's hand-dyed floss in a fabulous colour called Turkey Red - I can't wait to try this out - thank you Simone! Simone has some wonderful new charts and kits in her new Atelier Soed Idee shop so go *here* and check this out as I am sure you will fall in love with her designs.

The sun is out today and I think it may even be warm enough to sit outside later or at least I am hoping it is!

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    I'm happy to hear that you're feeling better and can spend some time stitching. I recognize your new start because I've stitched it, too. As to its source, all I remember is that I got it from a link on the HDF forum. It was my introduction to stitching red samplers and now I'm addicted. lol
