Bouquet Primitif, part one

Hello everyone,

I signed up last year for this stitch-a-long project, my first part is now stitched.

Design by Marjorie Massey – Project mystère “Primitif” – Bouquet Primitif.
Stitched on 40 count Parchment Newcastle linen by Sparklies with DMC floss.

This piece is not a mystery anymore, is gorgeous, some motifs take so long to stitch but is very pleasant to stitch. I also sign up for the new mystery stitch-a-long. I will make a blog post very soon with the first part.

My Quaker Street piece is from the same designer as Bouquet Primitif and became a piece of hatred and love for some people.
I already have to many years of blogs and social media to know how unfortunately some people behave.
So lets focus only on the love part of the story, since I don’t like drama and to be negative. Using my blog to write about this is very hard .

The design in question is not a out of print pattern.
Marjorie has a page on Facebook under the name “Creations Marjorie Massey“, you can find some of the mystery designs that she organized and some of her old designs that you can buy. She now sells her designs in PDF format, her email is on the Facebook page.

Please, if you have any questions about anything, please let me know via comments or even by email.

Since last September I have been replying to your comments direct on my blog comments section and not via email.
I’m not ignoring anyone, the reasons are the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and time management. All your comments are much appreciated.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!
Happy stitching,
