September 12, 2009 | Category: Crochet, Stitching, Vacation


Vacation is the perfect time for me for ‘slow’ crafting, like cross stitching and crocheting. Those babushka dolls are from the ‘Made in France’ cross stitch and embroidery book. In the book they used white embroidery fabric, but I wanted to try unbleached linen for a more ‘rough’ look.

Those granny squares are a new row for my blanket waiting to be joined as I go with the lovely candy pink yarn. It will be the 7th row so far, after that 3 or 5 more rows to go before the blanket is finished. I hope I can use it this winter on the couch while reading or doing some ‘slow’ crafting.

    […] I have a passion for craft books, maybe even an addiction. When I’m traveling or visiting a city, I can’t rest before I have bought at least one craft book from the local bookstore. This book, ‘Japon au point de croix’ I bought in Paris last October. My eye caught it because of the style of pictures, the subject is Japan and because I love French cross stitch and embroidery books in general.  (Please reference my other blog posts, here, here and here) […]
