This meant a brief interruption on my Motifs Abécédaire 30 sampler that I am currently stitching. But these things happen and I don't really mind. :)
As is my custom, I am more enthralled with the bonus designs rather than the main design. This one went VERY quickly as it was all of 35 high by 75 stitches wide. As this chart is very OOP and VERY hard to find, I wanted to stitch this on a very special fabric. I have a tiny amount of a long discontinued fabric from R and R Reproductions. I did a floss toss on 28 count Cashel linen by Lakeside Linens in Vintage Lentil but it just popped on the R and R Reproductions 30 count overdyed linen in Witches' Teeth. So, that is what is used and I am VERY happy with the outcome. I really do need to get a sewing machine so that I can put all of these things together. When it eventually gets put together, I think this one will be on display in the 'permanent collection' that I have displayed. I need to find a nice backing fabric for it that is not overly wintery or Christmasy.
At any rate, here are my efforts from yesterday and today:
