En Francaise

While I am trying to figure out what I am going to do with 'Cottage Garden', I decided to start a new project. I knew I had some DMC Impressions printed fabric that I got at Joann's a bit ago, and I came across a free gift design that I knew would be perfect for it. (Found here: http://novalee02.over-blog.com/article-6934514.html)

Here are my notes and the what I stitched since last night:

Design: Tour Eiffel (http://novalee02.over-blog.com/article-6934514.html)

Designer: Novalee

Fabric: DMC Impressions DC27R-rose

Fibers: DMC 310

Started: Monday, March 30, 2009

I am toying with adding either a Fleur de Lis or maybe an impression of a lip print. (Saucy!) Not sure which as of yet, but I think I will decide that when the main design gets stitched.

Well, I am off to catalog all of the stuff I am going to be selling on Ebay. I went through all of my stash and there is stuff I will never, EVER get to, so it's past time to let that go.

Hope everyone is having a good day! :)


Respectfully submitted,

Lovely new start! You are so right ~ that fabric was made for that design!

Ty, for the compliments, hon. I really do appreciate them. :)

I wish I knew how to do that!

I taught myself 15 years ago how to stitch and it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be.

If you'd like to learn, I can point you in the direction of some websites and things and I will be more than willing to help you learn. :)
