This is indeed a mystery...

At the end of last year I signed up for a mystery on a french blog. I don't speak a word of French - never had a single lesson. The designer Anne Marie has been sending out charts bit by bit each week or so and I have been steadily collecting them. Yesterday we all got an email marked "important" so I used babelfish to translate and the jist of it was that if you haven't sent your photos of your stitching you won't get the finishing instructions!!!! Oh heck thinks I and begin this mystery which is indeed a mystery as I haven't the foggiest idea what it will turn into. I only hope I am understanding the instructions correctly and am stitching it right. So yesterday I stitched up part one.

Mystery Part 1

This will be a mystery for me as well as any of my readers. So I have sent her that photo and now onto Part 2. Hurry hurry hurry!!! I have till next week to get all parts in so I get the finishing instructions.

You're off to a great start on something! ;) We're not sure what, but it sure is pretty, LOL! I've always found that the babelfish translator thing comes out with the wackiest stuff... I remember doing one for the Marquoir de Justine and it said something like 'you will die if you don't eat chocolate'. I'm not kidding. Anyway, I think your stitching is wonderful and I'll enjoy watching the mystery unfold!

Sally said...

That looks very pretty Hazel. How big are the pieces? I was wondering if it might be some sort of stitching case.

Tracy said...

Sweetie that will be some quick stitching

Annemarie said...

Erm... if the chart is in French, then I guess the finishing instructions are in French too?
Anyway, your mysterious work looks gorgeous! I wonder you have time to stitch with all the wonderful work you do for the Bea SAL!

Andrea said...

Intriguing. Can't wait for more progress.

Deborah/LavenderRose said...

Hazel, I have that translation issue with the French designs and sites, as well. But, you seem to have solved your problem well! Your piece is lovely. See you in our Beatrix group! Hugs, Deb

LOL, the project looks good to me, and not being able to read the instructions certainly does add to the mystery!
