Un ange passe....

OK, now that I've left you in suspense about my next start, I will finally show you what it is. It's from the French designer C Mon Monde and it's one of their free charts called Un ange passe.... I received the chart in with my order last year from The Thread Basket. It was only recently that I got it out and thought how nice it was. Then the next day I saw on Nancy's blog that she'd just completed it. I loved the look of it and the fact that she'd done it on a green fabric. So my mind went into overdrive about how I could stitch this up.

I've decided to use a Silkweaver fabric called Spring Garden which is a 28ct. I'll probably do it over 1 thread to give it a delicate look, and I've changed a few of the threads to include some Crescent Colours and a Gentle Art, but basically sticking to the same colour theme.

C Mon Monde - Un ange passe.... kitted

I'll also show you the last bits from my order through The Silver Needle. There's a brass measuring stick, 2008 Ornaments magazine from Just Cross Stitch, a pointed linen ornament pillow, a container of black pins, 32ct Flax linen, a crystal nail file, a couple of buttons, a pair of Putford scissors, and a few DMC threads.


This time of year I usually go a bit wild with my stash ordering. I've still got my birthday order to put in with Needlecraft Corner (you get a discount with them during your birthday month). The Rocking Horse just had a 20% off sale that I placed an order with, so I should receive that in a week or so. Then whatever I don't get this time, I'll wait for Stitching Bits and Bobs to have their next sale.

Can I just say before I go, thank you to those who wished me a happy birthday. It's so kind of you and much appreciated. :)

Hopefully my next post will have a new start to show you. Til then... happy stitching!
