Introduction - Brenda @ xStitchHaven

Hello everyone! I go by Brenda on the internet and I am 27 years old from Pennsylvania (USA). I am quite new to blogging. I started a tumblr (xStitchHaven) and have tied that to my blogspot account (BlogSpot), so please forgive me when some of my posts transfer to blogspot all jumbled, I try to catch them as they post!

When I heard about the Chatelaine challenge I knew I was going to have to sign up. I have never completed one, but I have started the Mini Mandala 6 (Moonstone garden) last year. I love working on it, but I think I have the attention span of a gold fish sometimes and flutter along from project to project. Sometimes seeing them to the end, sometimes not.

Here are my current progress pictures of mini mandala 6 (and since this is a mini I can't even imagination how large a full sized one is!)

I am slightly further along than this last picture shows, but I've moved on to 8 million other projects. I am hoping that seeing everyone's lovely progress that it motivates me to continue with mine. It's being done in all of the recommended threads and fabric. I believe it's in an 11 by 11inch Q-snap in the picture (but it could have been my 14 inch set) for scale.

As a side note, this is my second cross stitch related challenge this year. I also joined Epic Stitching's Stitch from Stash challenge (only spend $25 in one month on stash) so I'm slightly afraid that this group will add so many projects to my wish list. I will try to stay strong (and my wallet my hurt in January 2015!)

Looking forward to all the updates everyone!
