some vintage cross stitching for a new project

Since my trip to Brittany at the end of the summer,
I have been working slowly and patiently
on a large cross stitched project,
inspired by "la magie de Noel" of Veronique Enginger.

(My Mom bought me the book while I was visiting!)

The author is the designer behind a lot of embroideries by les brodeuses parisiennes,
I previously embroidered one of her designs on my beach bag:

You might have seen a few elements of the project on my Instagram,
it is taking a while but it is very relaxing 
to work on it at night, after a long day at work.
Of course it is all read and green, the total opposite
of my vision for this Christmas, 
as I am dreaming of Champagne Christmas!

So it will not be displayed in the living room,
there is always need for some Christmas red in other parts of the house.

I hope to have it finished on time to be the perfect advent calendar,
there are still 9 days...

Happy stitching!


  1. You'll manage it I'm sure. It's so pretty!

    1. Thank you Maria, I still have a few left...there are just so many projects that I am working on at the same time!


Merci pour vos commentaires, I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
