Hi everybody! My name is Anne Herdman and I live in Chattanooga, TN.  It's me, the hubs, our whippet dog Charlie, and two grumpy cats :-)  I've been stitching for around 17 years (since late teens), and I've done all kinds of projects, big and small. To date, my most complicated finish has been Teresa Wentzler's Peacock Tapestry. That was also my first ever stitch, as I was too naive to know how difficult that would even be!!

 I've been lurking in the background, drooling over these beautiful Châtelaine designs for a few months now, and I'm proud to report (thanks to the encouragement of Joyce!) that I've finally jumped in head-first with Victorian Garden, and I'm loving it! I'm using all of the recommended fabric and silks from ECS. First time ever to use linen or silk - not sure of why I was so intimidated, using these materials is just divine!
Here's my progress so far:

Beautiful start! I am working on this one also. Isn't stitching with silks an amazing experience? I have a very hard time switching back to other projects after working on a piece with silks.

I had no idea of what I was missing before those silks!!

Beautiful start on SVG - I have this as a WIP, too! And well done you learning on Peacock Tapestry! One of my very first pieces was TW's Unicorn, so you & I both kind of jumped in at the deep end from the beginning :)
