Etude aux Fraises ~ juicy strawberry!

Got a bit burned out on my monthly SALs, so I decided to start something new from my yearly goals and bucket list - Etude aux Fraises by Veronique Enginger. I'm stitching on cream Belfast, but the photo is pulling a little bit pink and I don't feel like opening Photoshop to fix it, so imagine. :)

And here's what the final project will look like (which is a far more accurate represention of the color of my fabric and threads!):

So this is a relatively small start for now, but since I've been more focused on writing than stitching lately, I won't complain too much. And it's nice to stitch something with plain DMC rather than worrying about variegated threads. :)

Unfortunately, the chart is in color, which is making it hard for me to keep my place (I like highlighting on a b&w chart) but it's not bad since there aren't too many colors in this design.

Not sure what my next update will be... probably more strawberries, though!


  1. Gorgeous design and great start!! I love VE's designs. Have fun working on this one :)

    1. Her designs are so simple and elegant! I'm really enjoying it. :)

  2. What a beautiful stitch! I'm looking forward to seeing more of this elegant design.

  3. Such a great project. I love Véronique Enginger's designs a lot but hadn't seen this one before. Very lovely.


I love comments! If you have a blog, leave me a link so I can follow you. :)
