We had an eclipse on  March  20th (too cloudy here to see it)
but now it's time for  WIPOCALYPSE  by Measi

As I'm "running" a virtual journey around France to guide you to towns dedicated to stitching

I have spent most of my free time in drawing, painting, photographing, writing clues and organizing posts.

Tomorrow will be the arrival of our third step, you can join us when you want
remember on Wednesday first clue with a new caracter, a another one on Friday then the solution on Sunday, comments or guess are welcomed!

Topic for the month :
Which specialty stitches do you love doing on projects? which do you dread?

Most of time I do cross stitch but for some special project I already made  hardanger, satin stitch, buttonhole stitch, fishbone stitch, couching stitch.

I have discovered "le point de Bayeux" which is special, I have loved to stitch it and want to do it again,

first you have to stitch outlines,

 then you fill with differents sorts of point

 My first work was a horseman
from the Tapestry of Bayeux
but I would like to try some modern patterns maybe a celtic one.

Metallic threads are my nightmares
and this month I used a DMC blue 320

I have tried to do "boutis" too
and it is very hard for me
so not finished.

  1. That's a really interesting stitch and very historical too. I think it would look great on some Celtic designs.

  2. Your drawings are wonderful.... I enjoyed them with the clues, your very talented.
    Your horseman looks brilliant, I love the way your stitching it.... It's a really lovely effect.
    Yes metailc thread I do t like much either!! Your doing a really good job with your blue metallic's pretty.
    Smiles :)

  3. I absolutely love your knight, I told you before, and that stitch looks very interesting. I'll have to try it on something like that.
    I agree with you, metallic thread is what I dread the most. as for Speciality Stitches, I like them all, as long as I can swap the Metallics! :P

  4. Oh my goodness - your knight is beautiful!!
