Japanese Garden

I accidently stumbled upon this blog and thought it might give me incentive to stitch more on JG. Maybe even get it finished this year! Thanks for letting me join ☺

The latest WIP pick I have is from January 8, 2012:

Here's one from last year that shows the entire garden:

Other WIP pics can be seen HERE.

New to the group

Hi everyone!

I'm new to the group, but not new to Chatelaine, as you'll soon see! Joyce has asked me to share some pics of (all) my Chatelaine WIPs!

I fell in love with Medieval Town Mandala probably nearly 6 years ago - it was the first Chatelaine design I ever saw and it completely blew my mind! I was lucky to be able to join the Yahoo group for it towards the end and so downloaded all the parts of the design. For the following Christmas and birthday, I got all the silk threads - I'd never stitched with silk before!

And for about 5 years now, I've had MTM as a WIP. In July 2010, I completed part 5.

Medieval Town Mandala - part 5 completed

However, over the last 4 years I've had 2 children, so stitching has had to take a back seat (I've been crocheting instead), but I've now dug out MTM again. I'm working on a basis of at least 12 stitches per day, which doesn't make for fast progress, but it's wonderful just to be working on it. In the last week I've done this -

As for my other Chatelaine WIPs, in a fit of enthusiasm, while I was waiting to get going on MTM, I started Watergarden ....

... and St Petersburg.

But they're now both hibernating until I finish MTM.

I also have a completed Tiny Rose Garden (which I love) which I completely forgot to take photo of!

In my stash, I also have at least Taj Mahal, Egypt Garden, Evening in the Park, and I've now signed up for the 15th anniversary design - am I crazy or what??

I've also been drooling over everyone's stitching here - they're all so beautiful!

Happy stitching everyone!
