French Country Garden

It's been a while since I've posted here. I had a major stitching slump last year and have only recently got back into the Chatelaine groove. But I've made up for that with a few purchases...I've bought Butterfly Lace and ordered the kit, Dragonfly Lace and a bunch of threads for it (I already had quite a few in stash), th chart for Herbularius, and this...

Heaps of solid stitching in this part! I *might* get it done before part two comes out...we'll see. I have to say, it looks a lot better now I've started adding backstitch, it was kind of blobby looking before!

A new year, a new project!

In december I've got a frame to stitch on ( I don't know how it's called in english) and I started a new project.
The Hummingbird Mandala. I'm also still working on the Taj Mahal and the Mystery but at the moment the Hummingbird is my favorit. Here are some pictures of all of them.

First three pictures are from the Hummingbird, next two are the Taj Mahal and the last three the Mystery.

Desert Landscapes Mandala, pt 2

After languishing on the shelf for nearly a year, my Desert Landscapes Mandala part 2 is finished!

Now I can finally move on to part 3, whew!  I love this design, but the backstitching of part 2 nearly did me in.  I am amazed by anyone who can wait until the end to do backstitching (or adding beads).  If I didn't do it as I go, I think I'd never finish anything. :)
