Love With a Capital L - Papillon Creations

I'm working on a list of projects for the house that I bought with my DH in 2005, so there is a tie-in between all the projects I'm currently working on.

I get the impression that I'm an odd bod for a cross stitcher because I seriously work on only one project at a time with another longterm UFO for diversion therapy (at the moment, I have two UFOs, but one has been put away for the duration - I've lost interest). Most people I know have at least half a dozen projects going!

Therefore, having finished my friendship sampler, it's time to announce my next project. Have a look to the left. It's the 'Love with a Capital L' by Papillon Creations. I have yet to grid my fabric before I start, and being so busy with work to be done before I go to Perth, WA, with my DH in mid-March, it might be a while before you get an update.

I'm going to use the same kind of evenweave fabric (Linda white 25count over 2 stitches) & the colours from Amitie & I've picked out a pink from 'Oriental Splendour' (my next project) to do this this project. I think it's going to be beautiful.

I hope you enjoy the progress reports once they start coming in. In the meantime, look for updates of my Tuesday SAL of 'Frederick the Literate'. He's a gem!

Happy stitching to everyone.

Your new sampler will be lovely. I recently discovered Papillon Creations, and they really have some beautivul projects. I like the new one Blossom Time, as well as an older one Peacock Panel. Do you get their newsletter? I recently joined and have been looking at the installment pattern Serendipity that they have there. There are just to many lovely patterns and not enough time to do them all. :)

I hear you about the time issue. LOL. What I've so far discovered is that it's ENORMOUS! I looked at working over one stitch but found that too much detail was lost in doing so. I'll have to look at the Papillon site.

I love "Love with a Capital L" from Papillon Creations. Someone else in the blogging world is doing it but I can't think who it is and it's a beauty.

Heidi said...

Both will be pretty. So yes looking forward to those updates.

For over 10 years I worked on only one piece at a time, but then I would get bored sometimes and get the itch to start something new and somewhere down the line I have about 6 or 7 UFO's all starting to get done a little at a time.

Ive also seen it on someone elses blog somewhere/sometime and remember thinking it was lovely! Will look forward to following your progress

Lucy said...

That's me...at least 1/2 dozen at a time that I'm working on. I also jump from craft to craft. I've always been that way since I was little.

I think the Love Sampler is beautiful. I'm looking forward to your progress. :)

Oooh lovely stuff Bliss - I can't wait to see its progress! x

Isabelle said...

Wow, that Papillon design is such a beautiful one. I don't like to have to many WIPs on the go either. (and I do feel as you do!)

Did I look pregnant on my last blog entry? Nope, I'm not having a baby - not yet :) Your comment intrigued me :)

BlissxStitches said...

I'm dreadfully embarrassed (but probably not as much as you, Isabelle). Denmark's Australian princess, Mary, wore lots of clothes like that when she was pregnant. You certainly don't look fat, that's for sure! I think you are gorgeous just how you are. Smile more, though, like you do when you are holding Robin.

Thank you for the birthday comment.

Home again - arrived yesterday.
It must have been a tough decision whether to start Capital 'L' or 'Oriental Splendour' first - they are both so pretty.
In case you haven't left yet - have a wonderful trip to Perth.

Isabelle said...

Don't worry for a second Bliss! I like frankness. Thank you for the compliments... Now I'm really embarrassed LOL. Seriously, you made me blush!
Take care :)
