An Introduction..........

Hello everyone, I'm Amanda (otherwise known as Mrs Milkybar Kid in other corners of the internet) and I am a Chatelaine addict!  Thank you to Joysze for finally dragging me out of the Dark Ages and getting me to post on this blog - and also to her and her fellow stitcher sisters in crime for organising SBCC which I'm looking forward to being a part of!

I discovered Chatelaines towards the end of 2011 and whilst doing copious amounts of "research" on them (i.e drooling over WIP pics) I discovered this blog and Joysze's Random Ramblings.  I couldn't take my eyes off the gorgeous pics of  her Chinese Garden Mandala and knew I had to stitch it myself - and the rest as they say is history!

Anyway, enough of my waffle - you are here for the pics right?!  Here are my Chatelaine finishes to date, from the smallest to the greatest:
