Tesori d'Italia

I happened to be reading Mia's wonderful blog today, and I immediately noticed a project she was doing. After researching her blog a little bit more, I discovered she had linked to where you can obtain the charts for free!

How happy I am. :-) The design I'm talking about is Tesori d'Italia. The reason I'm thrilled about finding it, is that I see many regions of Italy in there that are very special to me. My dad is Calabrese - he was born and raised in Catanzaro; and my mum is from Molise (which used to be part of Abruzzo until 1963 when they split into two separate regions). On my dad's side, I only have one set of cousins in Scotland, all the rest of his family are still in Calabria; and we still have a family house in the little village my mum is from in Molise. Most of the family on mum's side live in Rome (Lazio), but they almost all have homes in this little village in Molise too, where they go to when they want to get away from the city.

So thank you, Mia. I probably would never have found this otherwise. :-) I may not stitch the whole design, but I will have to do something with the regions that are special to me.

Hi Tina,
thanks for your post on my blog. I didn't know your blog and I'm going to add it to my list because I took a look at your works and they are all lovely. I stitched The Atelier de Brodeuse too.

Concetta, I am so sorry for getting back to you so late. I just finally had some time to update my blog and linked Tesori for you. I am glad you found it in the meantime. You can read about why I haven't blogged at my blog if you wish. LOL

Have a great weekend.
