Red Vespa Scooter Cross Stitch

I was in the mood to complete a mono colour cross stitch during the Australia Day long weekend, so I selected the scooter pattern from Vert: Motifs de broderie traditionnelle et au point de croix.  I know it's not vert, but when I picture a Vespa, it's rouge!  I used my favourite DMC 666 on 14 count Aida cloth, and it took about four hours to complete.

Agnes Delage-Calvet and Anne Sohier-Fournel are my favourite cross stitch designers, and I have several of their books in English, French and Japanese.  If only I wasn't so time poor because I would love to stitch all the patterns!

This is my second project off my New Year Craft Resolution list (making at least two mono colour cross stitch pieces) so I'm traveling well!


  1. Love the Red Scooter, I agree cross stitcher's need lots of time in the day.

    Happy stitching.

  2. I think your New Year Craft Resolutions are challenging but achievable. I love your crosstitch, beautiful work!
