Yesterday, in spite of the fact that I should have been doing stuff for my classes (as I should be now instead of blogging), I went off to LNS #1 to see what came back from Market. We've all been eagerly awaiting certain charts by certain designers, but there are some quiet, shy charts that haven't gotten much exposure on the web (at least that I've noticed). Here are two that I brought home with me:
"La Couleur du Coeur" by Marie's Passion (Marie Suarez). This includes a really nice-heart-shaped fob/ornament that I cut off in my photo.
And this chart, called "Bagatelle" by a new-to-me designer called LiLi Soleil, creations Brigitte Galaup, which is somehow related to the Dessins company. I'm going to stitch this with a big "G" in the middle (each alphabet letter is charted). I love the roses. Both designs are charted for DMC.
And I couldn't resist starting "Elizabeth Savilles," which I'm stitching using Terri's CC conversion on 40 count Lakeside in maritime white. Lots of pink in this as well.
This design has lots of pink also, although you can't see it in this q-snapful. "Sarah McPhail." Lots and lots of grass to stitch, but I've made some progress even with my homework.
Something unpink: I bought this fabric, which is 40 count Picture This Plus in "fog." I love the color, and I've placed a skein of Crescent Colours in "Hydrangea" on it. The bottom piece of fabric is Lakeside in Vintage Examplar, just to show you the contrast. I love the fog and the Hydrangea, which I'll use for some future project, whether separately or together. It will be a nice break from all that pink.
Peaches: "We all need a break from Pink sometimes."
Pink: "Not nice! Everyone loves Pink!"
I'm off to finish my homework, make a meatloaf and do a little stitching hopefully. Up next week: visit to LNS #2! Who knows what treasures I'll find!
Happy week ahead!
