A finished : the four seasons by Lanarte

This is a cross stitch I made for my mom. This is a special piece as I stitched it mostly during the hospital stay of my then 7 years old son Pierre. He was spending a lot of his time there to get his teatment for his leukemia. While he was watching TV or playing with his gameboy, I used to stitch. Time can be very long other there. He used to stay up to 8 hours and stay sometimes four days.

Here you can see a picture of my WIP the alphabet book by Lanarte. I am doing it for my daughter Emma who is 6 y.o. I love that piece but I put it away to stitch something different as it is a large piece (I know I tend to stitch only large piece :o I don't know why ... )

When I visited Paris I bought some charts from the same artist that designed the Season's picture for your mother. I love the colors she uses. I also bought some Christmas kits from Rouge du Rhin that are still Works in Progress. Maybe I should call them UFOs since it's been a year or two since I last worked on them. :-)
