I'm currently stitching my very first Chatelaine. I have admired them for a while but like many others hesitant to start one. I finally bit the bullet so to speak and started on my Taj Mahal Garden Mandala in December last year. I love it... so beautiful and a lot easier than I thought so now I have added to my wish list many more Chatelaines to stitch.
I have the printed hard copy chart which comes in 12 pages so that is why for some my "parts" might look a little different to how the PDF was presented. I also didn't start in the middle as suggested. I like to start in the top left for all my projects so I guess I was a bit of a rebel and started it on the outside working it down and across as I go.
Here is where I am with my progress with Taj Mahal Garden Mandala as of 2nd of March.
