Le Coeur and Margaret Sherry cat




So, this is what I did last week (the one with the strawberries, the cherries were done last year). They are from a French series of calliagraphy heart designs by French designer Isabelle Vautier,  from a company called Savoir-Fairie Vailly. They have a big range of 'heart-shaped' designs, right from the usual stuff like flowers, animals, also designs of Paris, one for chocolate lovers... cows, penguins, Egypt. I bought my two designs in Germany a few years ago. As far as I am aware, they are only available as kits. Here is the link if anyone wants to have a look.


The hearts were finished by Saturday, so there was time for a new start - a Margaret Sherry cat. It's a design from a the magazine Cross Stitcher (June 2003), it's a cat tangled up in cross stitch, very cute. As I'm working to a 5 weekly rotation, this won't come out again for a while, but shouldn't take long to finish at the end. It stitches up very easily actually.

I like your heart/berry designs very much, and your stitching is great!

Thanks Charlene, I enjoyed doing it though I'm not used to the linen.

The Strawberries and Cherries look wonderful, so colourful and cheerful. You're sooo naughty as I'm off to have a look now!

I love the heart designs, I think I might have a couple of her patterns. Very pretty! And your cat is coming along nicely too. *Hugs*

Thanks Jo and DJ, the designs are slightly unusual I thought.

The colours are so bright and cheerful, as well as beautiful designs. Lovely.
By the way, Pegster, I'll be signing at Waterstones in Tunbridge Wells in April. I don't know if that's in your neck of the wooods?

A loevely finish and a very good start on Margaret Sherry design.

Mylene - thank you for your kind comment.
Leigh - Tunbridge Wells is not too far from here, but a bum to get to. Are you going to be in Central London or Bluewater at any stage? I'll have a look at your blog.
