I have been very remiss in posting my Serengeti progress.  I have nine other Chatelaines in various stages of WIPness - I think Secret Victorian Garden is closest to being finished and I may rotate it with Serengeti  in my rotation.  But before I do that, here is my Serengeti progress: 

This is stitched on 32-count Summer Sky Jobelan with the called for fibers and beads.  I am beading the Delicas as I go and will add the bicones and other blingy things later.  And just in case I decide to add Secret Victorian Garden, here is where I am on that one:

I don't have a full-piece photo of this one but the other corners either don't have the trees or have trees that are just started.  I started this one on January 1, 2007 when it was Mystery X and kept up with it until the summer.  Then I moved and in between the packing and moving and unpacking and life, it got put away.  I have picked it up a few times since and got this corner to part 11 I think it's part 11.  It is stitched on 32-count Carol's Meadow from Silkweaver Fabrics.  I think it was a limited edition color as I only saw it for a short period of time.  It's a light green with splashes of very light floral colors.  It is stitched with the called for fibers and beads.  As I hadn't learned better, I did not bead this as I went so will have a lot of beading to do when I finish stitching.

Oh yes! I agree with Joyce... I can't wait to see your SVG finished :o)
That's not to say that Serengeti isn't gorgeous too. It is amazing!
I always leave my beading to the end but that is generally because I really enjoy the beading... although having said that I haven't as yet started a large Chatelaine!!! :o)

I love the beading on Serengeti! But Secret Victorian Garden looks amazing. I can't wait to see more of it :)
