Fruits (cross stitch) from France Nadeau

Fruits (cross stitch) - francenadeau.com

The last raspberry has been stitched. My fruit cross stitch is now finished.

I have decided to place it into a frame. One of the benefits of frames is that they can also act as trays.

Below is a jasmine tea ball that opened into a little flower on a small stem. I may be the only one seeing it, though.

Fruits – week 9 from France Nadeau

Fruits - francenadeau.com

Now that the bigger fruits are stitched, I am adding raspberries to fill the gaps. Because I used whole embroidery flosses to make the cross stitches (6 strands), the Aida cloth in between the fruits is wrinkled. Adding more fruits resolves this annoying problem.

Heart in Stripes – Second blue and white heart from France Nadeau

Heart in Stripes - francenadeau.com

Heart in Stripes in shades of blue and white. Although this second heart has the same background as the first (new and recycled fabric I used for the the mug rugs with a white foundation), it looks darker. This is amazing what a change of color in the details can do to the overall look.

Heart in Stripes - francenadeau.comHeart in Stripes - francenadeau.com

To adorn this heart, I sew by hand a ribbon I bought and stitched a row of “x”. Just as if I was making cross stitching. I was fortunate to have in my embroidery box a color that is almost the same as the ribbon ...

Heart in Stripes – First blue and white heart from France Nadeau

Heart in Stripes - francenadeau.com

Heart in Stripes in shades of blue and white. The idea of making it came while I was sewing mug rugs last summer. This heart (and two more that will make their way here in the following days) was made with the same new and recycled fabric I used for the the mug rugs with a white foundation. I called this color scheme White House by the Beach.

To adorn this heart, I sew by hand some lovely cotton ribbon I bought, braided cotton blue threads, crocheted Eight-Petal Crochet Flowers (my tutorial for those flowers here) and stitched a row ...

Fruits – week 1 from France Nadeau

Fruits cross stitch - francenadeau.comFruits cross stitch - francenadeau.comFruits cross stitch - francenadeau.com

This is a cross stitch project I have started many years ago. I am following a pattern by Le Idees de Suzanna (Luglio-Agosto 1997). I chose to use the whole embroidery floss (the 6 strands), which create a tapestry-like texture. The downsize is that it requires more strength.  I worked diligently on it for some months before putting it aside. Now is a good time to finish it.

Embroidery Floss... How many strands do I use? - France Nadeau

If you are wondering about the number of strands that are used in embroidery and cross stitch, you can read a post I wrote about it here.
