It's TUSAL time!
Here is my TUSAL jar with my current project, CCN Main Street Spooky Conversion:
stitched on 32 count Charcoal Slate Murano from Sparklies
This was the Flower Shop, can you guess what it is going to become?
What's on my Shelf?
This is a feature I'm going to include on my TUSAL post until I run out of books! I started a Page on my Happy Dance blog for my Stitching Library and realised what a huge task it was so decided to break it down to one book per month. For the next four years...
Title: Sampler en Rouge et Blanc
Author: Isabelle Vautier
Publisher: Mango Pratique
The text in this book is all in French, but that's OK because it's mostly self-evident what they are saying!
For example: Manoir aux Chats - Cat Mansion
That design is the reason I bought the book, and it's stitched in my favourite DMC 115
This one is Traditions en Rouge - Traditions in Red
Here we have Abecedaire Champetre aux Lapins - A Country Alphabet with Rabbits
Bienvenue sous la Neige (Welcome to the Snow) is shown in two colourways.
Red and White or DMC 115. They also show a Blue and White version.
Just for a change Etude Ethnique - Ethnic Study - is shown in Brown and Ivory
The final one in the book is Marquoir Plantations - Plantation Sampler and could easily be stitched as small ornaments.
There are a lot more designs in the book, these are just a few of my favourites.
Finally, it's IHSW so I hope you are finding some time to Hermit and Stitch. Come back and share a post with us on Monday on your blog or in the FB group.
