My favourite Xmas Patterns by French Designers.
A short post to show you my favourite Xmas designs by French designers. :) I know many of my readers are american, and they inspire me a lot. So I thought, why not show them what we have here in France? ;)
This is Jardin Privé's Noël Patchwork. Nathalie Cichon offers this as a pdf, very convenient. You can find it here.
And this is what I have stitched so far:
And this is "Sous la neige" (under the snow) by Tralala. No pdf there but Corinne Rigaudeau sells her designs there and you get a free chart with your order.
There are two versions.
This is the pink one:
This is the blue one:
And this is my progress on the pink version:
I don't buy many French magazines, but this one, Mains et Merveilles, has ended in my basket the last time I went for groceries and you can see a few pics there.
I have immediately started the 123 Citrouille project that you can see on page 4. I just cannot resist reindeers... :D
Tessa. I have never enjoyed using silks before, but this one is just perfect: doesn't tangle or make knots, doesn't get stuck in my fingers (rough skin). Great great silk and such a lovely colour. Thank you so much, Tessa. :)
I have chosen the fabric, lace and ribbon to achieve the design as in the mag. Will show you when done.
Last for today, this wonderful Xmas Tree by Elisa. Every year, she offers us a tree, they're all very different. Only the last one can be found online, the other ones have been retired.
there and see for yourself. I'm about to kit it up...
That's it for now.
Hugs to you all, Stitchers!
