Cross Stitch Patterns From This Very Place

Standard

Firstly, I’m packing for a class camp next week. I’m happy that the destination is in my favourite region of Switzerland. It’s the upper Rhine valley, called Surselva. The little village we are staying is Segnas.

Secondly, someone mentioned last week that it is difficult to find stitch patterns in libraries these days. After asking I found out that she was looking for cross stitch patterns. Now, look what I found in the thriftstore yesterday! Please, don’t hesitate to ask for some copies if you are still looking for cross stitch patterns. I would like to send you some.

Thirdly, some of the pattern of this collection of traditional Bünder cross stitch are from the Surselva.

Now, let’s open the book and have a look.

This sample is form 1868. Traditionally, Bündner cross stitch is done in red. The fabric used is linnen.

This pattern is from 1821, almost 100 years old.

Finally, I was thinking about a hand craft project to take with me even if I know that next week is hardly a vacation. But better be prepared I think.

I found these threads a while ago. They are the best. Unfortunatelly, there is no red spool. But, I am sure there is one in one of the many boxes in my attic. Furthermore, I hope that I can show you some progress on my cross stitch sample when I am back from Segnas and Disentis.

I’m linking with Mockingbird Hill Cottage.

  1. Ich schmelze grad dahin. Die Stickmuster sind ja traumhaft! Und in meinem Kopf nehmen schon die nächsten Stickprojekte Gestalt an😉 Lieber Gott, schick mir mehr Zeit, 2 Köpfe und 6 Hände *seufz*

    • Hast du Muster gesucht? Ich mache dir gerne Kopien davon. Müsste dann deine Postanschrift haben …🙂 Ich selber steige heute Nachmittag in den Estrich und suche Stickgrund aus der Kiste zusammen. Schöens Wochenende. Regula

      • Ich bin eigentlich immer auf der Suche nach Mustern und Ideen. Ist wohl schon chronisch😉

        Kann ich Dir meine Adresse zumailen? Wenn ja, an welche Adresse?

        Lieben Gruß,
        Smoky

      • Vergiß meinen letzten Kommentar. Ich hab Deine e-Mail-Adresse grad gefunden und Dir geschrieben.

        Schönen Abend noch!

      • Hallo, Regula!

        Die Stickmuster waren heute im Briefkasten. Vielen lieben Dank! Sie sind wirklich wunderschön🙂 Jetzt muß ich nur noch Zeit freischaufeln, um das eine oder andere auch umzusetzen😀

        Lieben Gruß,
        Smoky

  2. That book is a great find, Regula! (By the way, I love the photo of you on your sidebar! Gorgeous.) What do you do at Class Camp? Are you studying something?

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!

  3. Looking forward to seeing your project. Cross stitch was very popular here several years ago. My eyes say no no…so I can’t do it any longer, however I can embroider. Have a good trip.

  4. I hope that you have plenty time to stitch while you’re gone. I like those pattern. Here there was lots of red stitch done too but it was also done in blue by others. I know that whatever you decide, it will be lovely. Enjoy your trip.

  5. What a wonderful find that book is! It’s ages since I’ve done any cross stitch but I can almost feel my fingers itching to start as I look at those lovely charts🙂

    Enjoy your camp😀
