La Scapigliata by Da Vinci - Yiota's XStitch

 
 
I just love sepia style cross stitch
Unfortunately, hardly find a design I like enough to work on.

You might remember one I did earlier on here
- I never get bored admiring this finish! -


Well I finally found something I really like
And I must admit, yes I saw it on one of the blog I'm following, a little while ago

This is La Scapigliata by Da Vinci from Yiota's XStitch

I just received my chart,
I'm waiting for my fabric to get delivered by Mr Postman
A little trip to my LNS to purchase the floss I haven't got in my stash
and then... I intend to stitch my weekend away!!

Happy Stitching!
Mii


Voiçi mon tout dernier achat!
La grille La Scapigliata by Da Vinci de chez Yiota's XStitch

J'attends que le facteur me livre ma toile,
Un petit saut au magasin pour acheter mes fils DMC
et je suis prête pour le weekend... ☺

A tout à l'heure...

    1. Thank you! I can't wait to start it. This will be a big project & when it will get too much, I'll have a break with a smaller design :)

    1. There are 14 different colours & compared to an Haed, there are only 4 pages!! I should survive this, don't you think?? :D

  3. It looks intimidating - enjoy stitching it. I look forward to seeing your finish.

    1. I think 4 pages is a doodle compared to the Haed's 14 or 16 pages!!! :)
      I am really looking forward to start it & will make sure to keep you all updated with my progress!
