This is my version of Little Paradise Sampler byVirginie Menzildjian.I started switching colors on it because i didn`t have the desert sage by The Thread Gatherer, but I did have a lot of Caron Wildflowers I had bought on e-bay.I switched the desert sage for Tahiti, and the green leaves[also Thread Gatherer] for Jade Wildflowers. As always, one change leads to another.I used a DMC varigated for the flower bed border, and DMC 3821 for the house[that color always reminds me of the south of France, for some reason.]The bee hives are also a DMC varigated.
you`ll find the pic of the original sampler in my webshots album...
It was in Sampler and Antique needlework Quarterly mag.,summer 2002.
I`m still stitching the ornie for the exchange.I hope it`s done soon...ttfn
