Ooh la la!
When it comes to style don't you just love everything French?
There is a wonderful cross stitching magazine called De fil en aiguille that I asked my lovely French friend Francoise to help me find.
I received the magazine (thank you Francoise:) and, for anyone wondering what it's like, it really is a quality publication.
There are so many things I'd like to stitch from the magazine unlike the English magazines that I used to buy that were full of advertisements and very little else.
Along with magazine came the sweetest little pillow I have ever seen.
Beautifully stitched and finished by Francoise the design is from the Carriage House Samplings alphabet series. I love anything to do with the ocean but mermaids are absolutely my favourites!
This dinky little pillow is backed with cream crushed velvet, has a tiny lemon yellow ribbon bow and matching lemon yellow pins. What a beautiful keepsake - I'll treasure it always.
