Anges, meaning angels, and has lots of charts for cherubs and angels in cross stitch along with some small outline motifs for embroidery. It is by Agnes Delage-Calvet and Anne Sohier-Fournel. The two skeins you can see on the front are not photos, but actual skeins of white and grey thread with a needle and a piece of linen - so all ready to go. Underneath is a really-not-good photo of an angel blowing dandelion parachutes which I completed on dark ecru ( told you...baaad picture!) in white thread. It is unfinished right now whilst I think about what to do with it.
The second book is 'Country au Point de Croix' by Helen Wind. Again this is in French but the charts are very American so perhaps Helen is Canadian - follow the logic there?? The book is divided into chapters according to season. I haven't tried anything from here yet, but I will.
Second post today - I was feeling good after meeting my friend Carol for lunch.
Thanks for stopping by
