French publisher Marabout comes out with the most lovely books. They are always an inspiration and come at a very good price too. Their series that include a piece of linen and 2 half skeins of DMC are a great find. So far we’ve had Rouge, Blanc, Bleu, Vert, Noir and Anges. There are other books in this series, but they are not about colors. Usually, the books give cross stitch designs as well as stitchery designs.
In the book Anges, I found these wonderful patterns. I stitched them on our new Edinburg linen (color 705 if you are interested) with Soie de Paris.
For once, I DO know how I want these finished, but as finishing is not my favorite thing to do, it might be a while before it’s done :).
