Pompejian Garden update

This is where I have gotten to over the last few weeks.  I will pick up a needle again soon, but in the throws of packing ready to move homes.

I stitch again my Herbularius. It'always so beautiful! I have not enough of some silk threads for I give half of it to a friend. So, I'll stitch with some dmc instead of that silk.
Have a good weel end. Near Paris, it's quite cold and windy for spring

Sleeping Beauty's Castle as of 12.05.12

I've spent my last 10 stitching hours working on Sleeping Beauty's Castle.  I'm still working on the cross stitching on part 1 but have started using some of the recommended silks.  I've never sewn with silks before so didn't really know what to expect but I absolutely love them - they glide through the fabric so easily and I love love love them.  I keep telling myself not to get too used to sewing with them as I can't afford to switch all my projects to silk - plus I've got hundreds of skeins of DMC and Anchor that need using up!
