I'm new to this blog so will firstly introduce myself. I am Nicola also known as the Obsessive Cross Stitcher. I have been stitching for many years and have a large stash of HAED designs and other projects. I recently embarked on my first Chatelaine design and am absolutely loving it so far. I can see that I will be adding more Chatelaine's to my stash in the future. If you'd like to see my other projects please visit my blog by clicking on this link.
So here are the progress pictures of my Chatelaine so far. It is the Sleeping Beauty's Castle Anniversary Mandala. I am stitching it on 28 count Jazlyn hand dyed March 2012 Ltd Ed from Crafty Kitten Fabrics.
I worked on JG last week and ended up frogging a small section because I stitched one of the bonsai trees ONE stitch too tall. That one little stitch threw the bottom corner of the corner ornament off. Since everything on JG is so close together and contains specialty stitches, there was no way I could leave it and stitch around it.
Here's what it looked like on 3/19:
