Petits Bonheurs part one!

At the weekend I completed the first panel of 'Petits Bonheurs' by Madame la Fee.


It's so dainty!
The blue dots were an absolute pain to do D:

I've had a few...issues with this :(

First, the colours aren't as vibrant as they look on the preview picture on the chart. They are much softer and muted and it was the nice bright colours that attracted me to this design in the first place. I was quite down about it at first *lol* but as I stitched more on this panel I became happier with it. Still not 100% but a lot more that I thought I would be at the start ^^;

Second, the back-stitch. In the chart there is a separate sheet showing the outlines for the back stitch and other details. I thought this would be like the one you get with Bothy Threads kits. Oh no :/ I got a little confused at one point so I consulted the main chart to see if it was a little clearer...and there was lots of back stitch on the main chart that wasn't on the back stitch chart D: At least a little disaster was averted before it became much worse ^^

Despite my complaining. I'm still enjoying this project. The next panel to be stitched is full of cakes!

  5. You've done a great job so far despite the little issues!!! I'm supposed to stitch Passion des Roses & because of the fabric, I've just kind of keep putting it off... I should try to persevere like you :)

    1. Thanks ^^ I've just had a look at that design - it's so pretty *___* What fabric are you using? You could try stitching it on a rotation? That way you won't be slogging at it full time *lol*
