Japanese Garden- Corner ornaments finished

I am getting close to finishing the stitching on this one!  I finally finished the corner ornaments.  I was so tired of them by the last one, I didn't even really need the chart anymore!  I am so pleased with how it looks though.

Well I will let the picture speak for itself

Queen's farmhouse

When I end my embroidery I always rinse it in the cold water very quickly and I  aired it  on a bath towel before framing.
This time the threads CARON diluted on my fabric.Here is my Queen's farmhouse with its frame. I think you cannot see the bad colours

Japanese Garden is finished!!

I actually finished Japanese Garden on September 10th but didn't get around to uploading the picture from my camera until this morning. I'm down to 7 Chatelaines in progress now. I think I'm going to focus on Hawaiian Garden for awhile, though I'd really like to make some progress on Venice too (which is barely started). I just need more hours in the day!


Baroque Garden

I am getting much closer to being up-to-date with Baroque.  I just finished Part 15 (and Part 16 is the part released for September).  I will have started this month in the same month (provided I get a few stitches of Part 16 done)

Here is an overall picture as of Part 15 - I always love it when I take it off the scroll frame to photograph.

Happy stitching

Winter Watergarden

I just realized that I had not uploaded pics of part 9!  More pretty little birds and leaves for the top branches.

 Here's a closeup!

Another Japanese Garden

I finally got back to Japanese Garden. I thought I would enjoy it more than I did after nearly a month away. Honestly though I am tired of the Corner Ornaments. Next Chatelaine I do that is not a current group I will do by the quarter as the chart is done not as I did this one.

Anyways I really enjoyed the specialty stitches. This picture is not reflective of where I am, I have started the third corner Ornament. I have the lanterns and the underneath of them done.


September 16, 2011

Japanese again...

A bit more progress. Next up, an over one crane!

September 13, 2011

Queen's farmhouse

I have just finished "le hameau de la Reine" - Queen's farmhouse". It's very lovely. I stitch backstitches with the dmc black. It's lighter

Rachel's Chinese Mandala Part 6

Hi Everyone!  I thought I would drop by and share my part 6 with you all.  I loved this part, mainly because I have learned that absolutely loved the Jessica stitch, and part 6 was full of mini Jessicas!

Now I am very anxiously awaiting the release of part 7.  (I wish I didn't have to wait so long, lol, I am very impatient when it comes to things like this, haha!)

Thanks for looking! :D

September 7, 2011

Japanese progress

Yay! Blogger finally let me post!

Here's where I'm at with Japanese Garden. I replaced the teeny Jessicas in the top branch because they were just too much of a PITA, and replaced them with Rhodes stitches instead...

Gardens of paris

Have you seen it yet??? I promise myself I will NOT no I will NOT

at least until I have Chinese done or close to finished...........

Gill's Japanese Garden

Gill is having trouble uploading pictures to here. :( How gorgeous is her Japanese Garden?? :D

August 27, 2011

Winter Watergarden

Here's part 8 of Winter Watergarden.  I ran out of beads for the gates, but Cindy at ECS is taking care of that for me.  Not too bad since I picked this back up after the first of August with part 7!

August 26, 2011

Queen's farmhouse

I stich slowly my Queen's farmouse. It's quite difficult with the backstitches. I stitch both with the chart on a paper and with my pc to see the black lines.

August 24, 2011

First gate

I just finished beading the north gate or Winter Watergarden. So pretty!

Here is my IHSW

I participated in International Hermit and Stitch Weekend this weekend with my Desert Garden Mandala. It's looking lovely, if I do say so myself.

I'm going to add three piccys here. One is a shot of the birds panel. It has a roadrunner and a little blue bird. Then a piccy of the whole piece so far. I just love the way it looks!!! And then a piccy of the little bit of part eight I accomplished.

I only got a couple of hundred stitches in it, if that much. But I finished up my goal for it on this rotation, which was finish part seven and start part eight. Whoo hoo me!!! (That's two goals in a row. And going for three, lol.)

I have no clue where blogger will put the piccys, nor in what order they'll be. (They're being extremely difficult. I want them to be on the left, with text on the right, but the text refuses to fill in the spaces that are empty. Grrrrrr.... Stupid blogger. I HATE ADDING PICCYS TO A POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Rant over. Returning you to regular programing now.

Oh, and one last thing. That little black section in part eight is not done. Also, it is not going to be a Scotty dog. I think it looks remarkably like one, but that's just where I ran out of floss.
