Au Printemps

Well, Madame de Printemps has finally decided to make an appearance here in the foot of the Sierra Nevadas. It's pleasantly warm and the birds are out in the cherry trees singing their little hearts out. I have a classical music mix on iTunes right now, with some Harney & Sons Paris tea by my side.


With all of this going on, I had, HAD to mind you, begin a new project. Something pretty and spring time like, with lots of pretty colors on a soft background. Hence, the new start. I had been doing so well with the WIPocalypse (or at least my version of it!), I really did feel a bit guilty starting something new, but I just couldn't help it. Nothing in my bags was very spring like, and that's really what I'm in the mood for. I've promised myself that I will get back to it, once this current project is completed.


Let's get to it, shall we? :)



Design: Coeur Romantique


Designer: Reflets de Soie


Fabric: Vintage Belfast linen in Country Cream


Fiber: Gloriana Threads in 079- Monet's Pond



***Stitcher's Notes: Stitched one silk floss thread over two fabric threads.***







Well, I best be off. Time to stitch some more and I need to put the kettle on for more tea. Happy spring everyone! :)
