Glad To Be Here!!

Just wanted to introduce myself to the group.....    My name is Claire and I've been stitching for more than 40 years.....    I discovered Martina's beautiful Chatelaine designs about 12 years ago and fell in love!!

I live in north Florida about midway between Tallahassee and Jacksonville.....    we moved here -- my husband, Chip and me -- in 2002 to get away from the cold and snow of upstate New York -- near Syracuse....

I'm looking forward to get to know you all and enjoy seeing your beautiful work.....    and to share my work with you.....

Most of my pictures are in Flicker....     here is a link to my Flicker albums.....   take a look if you get a chance......

Just finished 'Serengeti' last week and will be taking it to the framer tomorrow.....    I think this is the largest Chatelaine I've tackled.....    it took 5 months and 677 hours.....

 
Now I've picked up my 'White Nights in St. Petersburg' -- one of my many wips.....     haven't touched it since 2010.....    Pitiful!!    will keep you posted!!
 
Till the next time....    Have a great day!!

"Serengeti" looks amazing, beautiful bright colours. Did you use silks or cotton threads? I've only just discovered Chatelaine designs in the lat week, they are exquisite. Off to see your flickr photos...

thank you Karen and Debs for your kind words..... I used the threads that were called for in Martina's materials list... in this one she used DMC and specialty threads....
