Peacock Garden

Finally went and collected this piece from the framers, only been there 6 mths but I told them I wasnt in a hurry, just wanted a good job made of it. Thrilled with the result.

Heli's Evening in the Park at the start of April 2013


I've been a follower of this blog for a while already and I absolutely love admiring all the beautiful updates here. I just wish there were more of them, more people posting pictures of their gorgeous Châtelaine WIPs and finishes. To that end, I decided to start contributing as well.

I am working on my very first Châtelaine, Evening in the Park. My fabric choice for this one is Dawn by Picture This Plus. This is how it looks at the moment:

I also have a few other WIPs going, including a couple of HAEDs, so the progress on this one isn't exactly fast. But I'll post a new pic here whenever I have reached a point that warrants another update. The next one will probably be when I have completed all four swans. Until then, I will just admire your updates and leave the occasional comment on them.

Happy stitching, and lots of pics please! :D
