Etude au géranium - Véronique Enginger



Hello Peeps!


As mentioned in my latest post, time to show you the second WIP
that has taken a bit of my free stitching time recently.


This is Etude au géranium,
designed by botanical artist Véronique Enginger

Available at Les Brodeuses Parisiennes
 
 
This is how it will look like when finished
 

 


The semi-kit came with the following:
Coloured chart
DMC references (no threads)
Dragonfly charm and
Fabric of your choice (18 count Aida)
 
 
I believe I ordered it back in Feb this year
and this is how it looks now after several hours of work
 
  
 
 
The details are amazing!
There is a mix of full & half stitch using 1 or 2 threads and backstitch too.
 
 
It will take time for me to finish it
However, I love the series so much that I have decided to
keep on working on it for the time being.
 
I will try to post regular updates for those of you that are interested in seeing progress.
 
 
How can I possibly resist and not buy
the peony, orchid & hydrangea sets??!
 
 
Toodles,
Mii
