I was still eating breakfast this morning when the doorbell rings. It was the mailman to deliver this wonderful chart from Renato Parolin! (sorry, terrible website!)
Renato Parolin is an Italian, male designer. When I saw this design "Nell' aria", it was love at first sight! I've added it to my wish list and forgot it a bit. Untill someone on the BAPXS yahoo-group mentioned Renato Parolin again. This time I couldn't resist it any longer! So I ordered it right away at Casa Cenina. It's a large design (388 x 233 stitches). Larger than I thought it would be... But I'm gonna enjoy every stitch of it!
And when I came home from my doctors appointment (she removed 4 moles from my back), I found this at my door mat:
It's "Earth Sampler" from The Primitive Needle. I saw the finished piece on Vonna's blog and asked her if she wanted to trade the chart. And she did! I think it's a great way to comfort myself after the "surgery" ;)
So this afternoon I'll be playing with me threads and fabrics to see if I can start one of these right away!
Have a nice weekend!
