It has been a while

I am not going to go back and see the last time I posted here.  Secret Victorian Garden made its way into the rotation and I finished the last part 9!

There is a little bit of part 10 done and the outside border is part of part 11.  As I am so close to a finish, I have stopped my rotation and am going OAAT on this until it is done. I do think I can finish it before the end of the year.

Chinese Garden - Part 8

Hello all,

I know it's been a long time, even longer than I realized when I looked back for my last post. August of last year!  My excuses are as follows; since posting I've been through two harvests which mean no stitching for about 6-8 weeks, we sold a house (basically completely remodeled so no work to come home to,) bought a house, (that needs a great deal of work, roof, siding, updating . . .) and that is what has occupied me for the last year.  I did get a (very) little stitching done but never posted.  That would have taken far to much time.  To catch you all up I did finish the bottom two vignettes and completed the inner border all the way around.  Last night I started the outer blue border that means I'm almost to the phoenixes!  I'm looking forward to starting them, I think they were the main reason I bought the pattern.  So without further ado a few pics.  I am thinking about going back and doing a little back stitching around the fall tree, I would like the boughs to be a bit better defined.  Thoughts?

 'Till next time, hope it will be much sooner.  E

Nymph Garden: dancing trees

An update of my Nymph Garden, after a long time of silence. My goal is to stitch all the dancing trees and the fourth section of big leafs during next week. It is vacation in the Netherlands, so I have more stitching time.
