Point de croix: Fables de La Fontaine
No Thumbnail Available
La Fontaine, Jean de
There are detailed plans here for ten sewn renditions of La Fontaine's fables and for a portrait of La Fontaine himself. Is Point de croix cross-stitch? Each little section of the book offers the full La Fontaine text, a picture of the completed stitchwork, the plan for doing the stitching, and one or two excerpts or symbols of the whole stitching. The fables featured here include MM, Juno and the Peacock, FC, The Two Goats, The Wolf Become Shepherd, TT, The Horse and the Wolf, TB, FS, and The Fisherman and the Little Fish. The designs may be oversimplified; still, I find the finished pieces good. The last pages include a sampler of letters, color codes, and pictures of the seven other books in this series. They deal with fairy tales, legends, myths, and visual elements like letters and florets.
