Berlin posy - finished !

Yeah !

I finished stitching Berlin posy ......

Then, I found some more hand painted patterns at the bottom of one of my boxes....

I've started charting the swan picture... more on that later.

The pattern for Berlin posy is available here:

Swans, hand painted antique pattern

See the flaking paint......

Another hand painted chart

Notice how someone wrote numbers on the chart... maybe they corresponded to yarn colours ?


  1. Wow, such a lovely finish and such wonderful patterns! Thank you for this great post!
    Greetings from far away!

  2. Beautiful!

    I love the swan chart, interesting shape, was that for a purse or something else?

  3. The swan pattern is interesting.... maybe a purse, or chair cover ?
    The two patterns are cut, and glued together to the same piece of old and dirty cardboard.
