La Scapigliata by Da Vinci - Yiota's XStitch

I just love sepia style cross stitch
Unfortunately, hardly find a design I like enough to work on.
You might remember one I did earlier on here
- I never get bored admiring this finish! -

Well I finally found something I really like
And I must admit, yes I saw it on one of the blog I'm following, a little while ago

This is La Scapigliata by Da Vinci from Yiota's XStitch

I just received my chart,
I'm waiting for my fabric to get delivered by Mr Postman
A little trip to my LNS to purchase the floss I haven't got in my stash
and then... I intend to stitch my weekend away!!

Happy Stitching!

Voiçi mon tout dernier achat!
La grille La Scapigliata by Da Vinci de chez Yiota's XStitch

J'attends que le facteur me livre ma toile,
Un petit saut au magasin pour acheter mes fils DMC
et je suis prête pour le weekend... ☺

A tout à l'heure...

Lutin d'Automne - Tralala

I have finished this little cutie!
Just in time before winter settles in with frost & snow

I adore the colour tones and had fun stitching this autumn themed design

Lutin d'Automne from Tralala This little leprechaun has been stitched using DMC threads, 2 over 2, on Zweigart 32ct Murano Beige fabric

It will be simply framed
Hope you like it ☺

Happy Stitching!

Je viens tout juste de terminer cet adorable lutin!
Il était temps, avant l'arrivée des grosses gelées et de la neige

J'adore vraiment la palette des couleures choisies par le designer,
cela aura été un vrai plaisir de broder cette grille d'automne

Lutin d'Automne de chez Tralala Ce petit lutin a été brodé avec les fils DMC préconisés, 2 sur 2, sur toile Zweigart 32ct Murano Beige

Il sera tout simplement encadré
J'espère que vous l'aimez aussi ce petit lutin? ☺
