Passion des Roses Update


Small post for a tiny update on Madame La Fée, Passion des Roses
I had to unstitch a bit of the white lace stitching as I had miscounted my crosses
but here is my little progress
 

I bought this as a kit and I sooo wish I didn't
The fabric, as lovely as it looks and feel, is just horrendous to stitch on
I thought about using a different fabric, but I've worked on it to much to go back and start again
So I'm going to persevere!
The "brighter" months are yet to come so I should make better progress
Don't forget there is still time to enter your name for my Gorjuss giveaway,

Happy Stitching!
Mii x

---oooOooo---

Petite mise à jour toute ridicule sur le SAL with Mii
Passion des Roses de Madame la Fée
La toile de lin est très jolie mais pas l'idéal pour broder
J'ai du mal a voir les trous!!!
Bref, les beaux jours sont là, avec une clarté qui devrait m'aider pour avancer un peu
Je n'ai aucune excuse

A tout à l'heure...

  2. Hey! I'm sorry you're not enjoying the fabric. What kind is it (just for future reference)? :S

    1. It is a lovely linen fabric coloured "graine de pissenlit" on 32 count!
      My problem is the 32 count!!! :D Way too small for my poor eyes :D

  3. I hate it when you want to start again but have completed too much! It looks lovely. Hope you begin to enjoy working on the fabric.

    1. Thanks Rhona!
      I must admit, because of the fabric count being too small, I really don't enjoy working on this but I'm sure I'll bet by if I work on it on a very bright sunny day :D

  5. Bad enough to have to stitch all that white, but even worse luck to have to un-pick and re-stitch! But it's looking lovely now, so that work is behind you. Kits can be so annoying when the fabric doesn't please you, but it looks fine in the photo.

    1. Thanks Annie! I love the fabric colour & feel. It is so soft... 32 count is just a bit too small for my liking!! I can't stitch as fast as I want to as I'm forever counting the holes to make sure I haven't made a mistake :D I'm sure if I put my mind to it, I'll be able to get it done x

  6. So pretty!! But I can imagine it's a little less fun to stitch when the fabric won't cooperate! ;) Good luck!!!

  9. That's some nice progress on your project. But sorry to read that the fabric isn't to your liking. I know this problem with kits - I rarely buy any because I usually don't like the fabric. But unfortunately some charts are only available as kits.

    1. I'm pretty sure this one was available as chart only too!! I just thought, no I like the pic with this lovely coloured fabric, let's go for it :D Ah well, it's a bit too small for my poor eyes... I'll get by!!

    1. Yes, exactly! It looks lovely, feels lovely but is SPECIAL!!
      This 32 count linen is horrendous, I'm looking for the holes :D
      I can't stitch fast because of this...
      I've put it aside again as the clock it ticking on my other project for my mum :D

  12. Such a shame your enthusiasm for the piece has been tainted with the not so nice fabric, it does looks really pretty though.
