Sampler au Bouquet

Hope everybody have a wonderful spring! Mine is not the happiest but I'm getting more positive as days go by. I am very close to share with you some finished pieces… you just have to be patient with me for couple of weeks. :)
Patty asked me to share the site from where I’ve got the last biscornu design. Click HERE to find it.

I signed up for the Sampler au bouquet by Jardin Prive SAL hosted on Au Plaisir De Croix blog. Just noticed that first deadline was March 25th. In my mind for some reason was April 1st… I will be paying more attention next time! :)

Here is my progress. I love, love, love this design and it’s a joy to stitch it.

Sampler au Bouquet @ Jardin Privé
Fabric: 40ct Newcastle Linen – Freezing chocolate (hand-dyed by Nina)
Threads: Nina’s Threads - Old Jeans, Old Berry, Cherry Blossom, Soot, Olive Oil, Grizzly and TGA - Liberty

Take care and happy stitching,

Great to see your progress on this design, Michelle! I love seeing other SAL pieces, enjoy seeing differently shades :)

I also love Jardin Privè design! I'm late to join the SAL but I'm happy to see the WIP! I'm stitching Quaker aux clefs and it's pretty too.
Take care!
