This is a small collection of whimsical designs that comes to us from France. Something about them is endearing... all the skinny legs, all the big berries and flowers... the scalloped borders... I just love 'em! Offered in chart format, the instructions are written in French, with those recognizable DMC floss color numbers! I believe most of them call for overdyed floss dyed by Tra La La.

I purchased Joyeux Noel with the hand-dyed threads... but not the rest, as it really sky-rocketed the prices. (I'm looking at the overdyed floss... it is a cotton... looks just like Gentle Art, Weeks or Crescent... and as all the designs are cute, and I'm sure you can find fun fabrics and threads already in your stash for these! I just *had to have them!*

  • Souris Couture - What a cute little stitching mouse! She's holding her threaded needle, perched atop that spool of thread... all the rest are growing flowers! The tomato pin cushion is super cute on there, too. The whole thing measures 110 x 79 - so not big at all - only 5 x 7 on 32ct. If you do the mouse individually, she's only 45 x 25, and that tomato is just a little over 2 inches square! DARLING pin cushions to stitch individually, and then gather together in a bowl!
  • Bouquet Ovale - This is the third glowing bouquet design we have by Tra la la - you can see the other two that coordinate with it on our inside pages. (Jolies Fleurs and Joli Bouquet) All three of them are so pretty... each is just a little different, but they do go together! Soft Gentle Art hand-dyed flosses of Forest Glade, Garden Gate, Soot, Raspberry Frost, Aged Pewter, Grasshopper, Old Purple Paint, Old Red Paint and Caramel Corn, the overall stitch count is 115 x 69 - or a petite and pretty 7 x 4 on 32ct!

I love this billowing bouquet of flowers! It has such attitude... so pretty and flowing... and that bitty pot is charming! By Tra La La, this measures 181 x 101 - so it finishes approx 10 x 6 on 18/36ct natural linen.

It's coded for Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Garden Gate, Dried Thyme, Cameo Pink, Pomegranate, Deep Forest. Raspberry, Dungarees, Freedom Cottage Blue and Harvest. Just a lovely piece!

Joli Bouquet
This is a pretty urn of flowers -- a profusion of soft colors and charm. Measuring 88 x 89 in stitch count, it will finish approx 5-1/2 inches on 32ct. It is charted for both DMC and Gentle Art Sampler Threads -- the hand-dyeds were used in the stitched model pic.

It'd make a lovely pillow for a sunny window seat, or a colorful pin cushion stitched on something small. Offered as a chart.

Santa Claus
Oh, I think this is a charming picture, because I love the little line of reindeer! Stitched with Gentle Art hand-dyed cottons, the stitch count is 152 x 66, so approx 9-1/2 x 4 on 32ct. You can see that she's stitched those deer in vertical rows - it looks like they have on blankets!

Anyway, notice the soft colors, that this design appears to have 3 sections. Stitch the Santa by himself, or the church and trees, or even just that little row of deer!

Vive le Printemps
Bits of Spring? Lots of rabbits and sheep in this one, there are 9 'sections' to this that would all make cute little cushions - another option instead of stitching the entire 9-1/2 x 12 inch piece.

Pull out your stash of hand-dyed floss and choose your colors as this is charted for hand-dyeds sold in Italy.

Charts by Tra La La... some cute designs for you Paris-Lovers! Stitch the Little Black Dress piece to decorate your closet door or inside wall -- if you have a big closet! Might be cute in the Laundry room too!!!

La Parisenne is sweet and would make a cute photo-album cover. Just fun designs about 100 stitches square each... offered in chart format and coded for DMC and Gentle Art Sampler Threads.

Alphabet Fleuri from The Tralala Collection -- click to see more Alphabet Fleuri
What a pretty, wild tulip basket -- a flowing vine along with a couple of hungry blackbirds! From Tra La La, this is one of three new designs we have. I love the curves in this -- it measures 92 x 100 in size and is shown in summery colors. Picture it with those same black birds and rusty flowers with a golden alphabet... the shape of the design is really good, you can fit it to lots of color schemes.

Directly from France... the chart is coded for DMC and Sampler Threads. That's all I can read -- but it's enough! Make sure to see our other new offerings by Tra La La!

ABC Noel from The Tralala Collection -- click to see more ABC Noel
CUTE! With a stitch count of 65 x 131 -- you can stitch this on any count fabric you want -- go over one or two threads. The chart calls for Gentle Art Sampler Threads, and I think the whole piece would love to be embellished with buttons and possibly a few glistening beads in the snowlfakes???

Offered as the chart, over one on 28ct, it would finish approx 2-1/4 x 4-1/2!

Comme un Oisen from The Tralala Collection -- click to see more Comme un Oisen
What a pretty urn with the explosion of flowers -- such a classic sampler-motif type of piece. This needs to be made into a pin cushion stuffed with crushed walnut shells - so it feels soft and heavy.

A stitch count of 49 x 85 offers a petite design that is worked in Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Briar Rose, Heirloom Gold, Dried Thyme, Old Red Paint, Old Purple Paint and DMC 3371.

C'estl'ete & C'estle Printemps from The Tralala Collection -- click to see more
C'estl 'ete Strawberry Gazebo
Spring and Summer? Don't know... but I like the gazebo surrounded with the lavish garden blooms of flowers and strawberries!

85 x 89 inch stitch count, charted in DMC!

Carre' de Printemps
I'm sure this must say *Spring* on it... I love that little bunny section! 85 x 87 Stitch count, it uses 3722, 3781, 778, 3012, 646 and 3051. Pretty colors!
