Stitch Maynia 2021 Start #24

 Back to our regularly scheduled seasonal charts, this is a fun one from Jardin Privé. 

I'm not a huge fan of redwork, so I changed up the fabric and threads. This is my start:
Joyeux Noel by Jardin Privé
stitched 1 over 2 on 28ct Slytherin evenweave by Chromatic Alchemy
with Caron Waterlilies Hint of Mint

I had some colourful thread picked out, but I asked DH's opinion since he has a better colour sense than I do, and he said to stick with the whitish thread only. I think I have enough to finish since I have a whole skein and it's 1 over 2 stitching. I quite like the fabric colour too with it's muted grey/blue tones within the green. 

This one will definitely take a while, but it is only one colour, so it should still be quicker than something with many colour changes. 

I hope you're all staying healthy and enjoying some sunshine. It's cooled off a bit today, a high of 18-20C/65-68F, but there's still some nice sun, so it's a good day to be outside and maybe get some gardening done. 

Happy Stitching!



  1. It's a lovely design, and I can see why you like it:D It'll look good in that colour combo too.
    It has been so nice to wake up in the morning and read your latest post and check out your latest project so I'm going to miss when this Stitch maynia stops, haha. And I want to tell you that I have been able to finish a bookmark thanks to all the threads you sent me <3<3! So grateful and thankful to you <3. Hope you have a good week and good luck with the rest of your starts!

    1. Oh great! I'm so glad you were able to finish it up. That's so nice to hear. Thank you!

  2. Lovely design. I am surprised you're not a fan of redwork though. I love the way it looks on white or black fabric!

    1. Maybe on black that would have been okay, I don't know why, but it doesn't appeal to me on white.

  3. I really like your chosen fabric and floss. It will be very pretty!

  4. This will look really awesome in your colours I think, great start!

  5. I like this one too! I wonder how it would look if you added a bit of red in there?


Thanks for any comments!
