Le Petit Gateau finish

Got another wee tiny finish under my belt. I ordered the floss for this about a week ago, and when it arrived, I *knew* I had to stitch something immediately with it. I chose this wee sampler, as I've had it for a while and I thought it would be a good way to check out the floss see how it was.

The floss is by Victorian Motto Shoppe ans there is a TON on the skein. It was very pleasant to work with and Nancy who owns the business is also fantastic to deal with. The order arrived lickety split and I will probably order from her again.


At any rate, here is the finish:




Design: Gateau Sampler


Designer: Simone de Jong for Atelier Soed Idee


Fabric: 32 count Country French Linen in Cafe Mocha


Fiber: Victorian Motto Shoppe Cotton Embroidery Floss in Antique Blue and Tan.








Well, I'm off for now. Pizza's on it's way and tonight Holmes Inspection is on. I just love the show. It totally rocks!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! :)
