Hello from France     Reply with quote  
 
 
4:29 pm Feb 16, 2011

I would like to say hello to all of you. It is nice to enter in a new family. I have been stitching for many, many years, cross stitching, traditional stitching, but also crochet and knitting. Lately, I have trying to find some new models and found this very nice site. It feels like home. I have bought a model, which is on its way. For the moment I am working on different things : candie bags for my coming wedding, kitchen towels for the charity sale of my parish and on a big tapestry "Lady and the Unicorn : the taste". This model is nearly 15 years old. I had begun alone, then my mother wanted to work on it too. she left us last year after many years of illness..... and the tapestry was forgotten. But now, I am working again on it. Sure that my mother would like to work at four hands with me.
I apologize for my English. I have found the tutorials very interesting. A gold mine for stitching addicts

English, francais -- it doesn't matter; we are all stitchers.

After a favorite aunt of mine died, we found among her things a beautiful Danish Permin needlepoint, half done. It gave me great satisfaction to finish it. I feel connection to her every time I look at it on the wall.

It's nice to have you in the conversation.

Hi Welcome to the Forum ! Which SQ design are you waiting for? I'm currently working on The Oregon Trail by A. Bierstadt and find that it's so nicely charted - such a pleasure to work on. I'm also in France, but up north from you.

I've been stitching for years as well and find that as the years go by, I want to spend more and more time stitching...but that is another subject.

Happy Stitching

Bienvenue, Isa!
Did you know that Marseilles and Hamilton (where I am) are at about the same lattitude? But of course, I'm sure, your weather would be even nicer on the French Riviera...
Enjoy your time here.

Thank you for your welcome, Caroline. I feel this connection to my mother when I work on that tapestry too. It is a priviledge. I am so impatient to see how it will look when finished. Who will be able to guess who stitched what ?
I wish you a nice day (or evening ?). Isabelle

I did not know that we have this "geographical" proximity. As far as the weather is concerned : rain and rain since Monday and temperatures are quite cool. We even had one week snow in January with temperatures under zero. The sun should be back next week ! Rain or sun : all times are good to stitch. Just for tapestry : I can only work on it when it is cold.
And how does the weather look on your side of the ocean ?

I am waiting for "Vine" from John Henry Dearle. I had found another model from the same artist on another site. I am looking forward to opening the package and see how it looks inside. How far are you on progress on the Oregon Trail ? I hope that we will have the pleasure to see some pictures on the site. Nice that you are in France too. And so funny that we write... in English. Stitching is a very international language, isn't it ? I have noticed that days are really too short : 24 hours are not sufficient to stitch and eventually do our duties.

Unseasonally warm, actually... still have a lot of snow but it is melting rapidly. Supposed to be about 8C tomorrow (my birthday is always warm, if not sunny).

Oh ! Then let's sing a "happy birthday" to you ! Laughing
And what have you planned for that very special day ? An extra stitching present ? A big cream cake with plenty of candles ? Maybe a restaurant ? I wish you a wonderful special birthday.
