A quick update from me.

I'm still working on Taj Mahal Mandala Garden.  I've now completed the left and top outside and flower borders and working my way into the middle section.

I'm so loving seeing this design come alive it is a true pleasure to stitch.  My photo is progress up to 14th October. Hopefully I will have another update soon.

Happy Stitching everyone,
Deb

Little bits at a time

I didn't get much time on my last rotation on Hummingbird Tile but I did manage some progress.

Art Nouveau

My Art Nouveau Sampler is creeping ever closer to a finish.  This weekend I finished the yellow flower and started on the leaves.  I hope to have them done tonight and move to my name and date!

Another Secret Victorian Garden Update

Not a lot of stitching has happened lately but I was able to get some time in with Secret Victorian Garden.  When I last posted, it was here:


Unfortunately, I misread the key and had to pull out all that blue but after the frogging it was fairly smooth stitching to here:


I hope to finish the green on the willow tree and the windows in the wall before its rotation time is up tomorrow.  And yes, there are two different colors in the willow branches.  I misread that color too way back when and didn't notice until I was much too far along to frog so I changed the rest of the corners to match.

Japanese Garden

I'm finally finished. It took over 5 years but I did it. I am so unbelievably proud of myself. I have never completed such a big, complicated cross stitch project. This project saw so many firsts. Life has changed so much in the 5 years. It isn't perfect either and know what? I'm more than okay with it. 

Can I say I'm a chatelaine addict. I can't wait to start my next one! For now I will bask in the glow of having it done. 

28 ct Mississippi blue linen, silk weavers. Stitched as suggested, npi converted to Hdf.

Lack of progress

No photo to show for my progress this month on Japanese Zen garden....

I had to spend the month riping out the green mossy stones on the left side, resulting in negative progress :( .... at least now things might line up better.

Hopefully October will bring a better more positive amount of progress!!
