A Finish and a New Start

I finished all three of the Mini Mandala II series.  I enjoyed them so much.  I am thinking about the other set of small mandalas. (lousy photo, lighting is terrible, but you get the idea.)

I started Old World Vinery for my sister.  I am enjoying it very much.  Am trying not to be too impatient as I know it is going to take me a while.  

I am also working on Knot Garden and will be starting Mini Mandala 05 from the bundle I ordered severeal months ago when it was on sale.  Have not decided on a fabric yet.  Although I adore all the hand dyed fabrics, I am afraid they might detract from the beautiful design and colors so I usually end up sticking with antique white, ivory or champagne linen.

I have put Gardens of London away for a while.  The buildings were getting to me!

Medieval Octagon

I finished this lovely last night.  I made lots of color changes so it's not quite how Martina designed it but I'm super happy how it turned out.

Secret Victorian Garden finish

I posted every where but here (need to find the slapping forehead emoji).  I started this when it was Mystery X on January 1, 2007.  I kept up with the parts until July or August when I packed up and moved from New Hampshire to Virginia.  It spent years in the WIP box and was in and out of the rotation a number of times, but I decided this was the year it was going to be finished and stopped rotating for a while.

Winter Watergarden was picked by the random number picker to take its place when I start my rotation back up.

Meari's Japanese Garden

I attended a retreat a couple weeks ago and worked exclusively on JG.   Here's what it looked like at the start of the retreat:

 My goal was to finish the 6 o'clock branches.  Tada!

I also finished the left and right bridges, the blue border, and started the gold metallic.  Woo Hoo!
