French Mystery Part 2

DSC04535

Here is my Part 2 of the mystery. I am sure the first parts colours are supposed to correlate to the second part (I think I made a mistake here). Never mind - it is only an experiment. Thanks for all your lovely comments and encouragements. I am stitching this up quickly and I think you were probably supposed to choose either the cross stitch or the speciality stitch and stitch two of those but I did one of each. Another ooops!!

Thank you Leena and everyone else who has offered to help me with the translations. I will surely be knocking on your doors soon.

Some have asked how I manage to get so much stitching done. That is such a big compliment as I don't feel like I get enough done! I do struggle to juggle childcare, housework, blogging, stitching and prayertime in my life and I never seem to get a right balance. I like deadlines though and feel I achieve more when I have a deadline set. I sometimes get an hour of two in the day when I can stitch when Elijah has his nap. Then in the evenings as well. But I also try to blogread as well as you guys are so my stitching inspiration.

Thanks for all your encouraging comments. I'll be popping by your blogs soon,

I think that you're coming along quite nicely! Regardless of which stitch you chose, it's beautiful!

Very pretty. I think using the different ones (some straight crossstitch and some the specialty stitches) will give it a unique feel and the contrast will be lovely. Can't wait to see what the next part looks like.

I also have that feeling that I only manage a tiny bit of the stitching I'd really like to accomplish in a day. Sigh...

Wow, you were stitching up a storm on this mystery. The two parts already look very lovely. I'm very curious about what will be made with it when all the parts will be done.
