Secret Victorian Garden Update

After 9 years, 1 month and 28 days, the stitching on Secret Victorian Garden is done.  To be fair to myself, the poor thing sat in WIP hibernation for 6 years or so and then only got worked on a couple of times over the next three years before I settled in over the long President's Day weekend to finish it.  There are still 1,627 Delicas to add and several hundred bicones and cubes, but I am very happy to have the stitching part done.

Stitched on 32-count (I think) Carol's Meadow Jobelan (a limited edition fabric) from Silkweaver Fabrics with the called for materials.

The medieval town

I begin to stitch the medieval town. I stitch only with DMC threads and a few silk threads. Have a nice day!

Meari's Japanese Garden 2/18/16

I know what you're thinking:  "She *just* posted 10 days ago. What's up with that?!"  I realized I hadn't taken it off the scroll frame since 2013.  So it was time....

Figured out why it's not been off the lap stand. I have to dismantle the entire thing to get the scrolls off!  I probably won't be showing another full photo until I'm finished with the stitching.

Secret Victorian Garden Update

Secret Victorian Garden was pulled out after a long rest this week.  I had five days off from work and this was my focus piece.  I am very pleased with how much I got done and plan to keep it on the frame until it is finished - hopefully by the end of this month.

It is a horrible picture, but I couldn't get a better one showing the whole thing.

Meari's Japanese Garden 2/8/2016

My latest progress on Japanese Garden. Not much, but some is better than none. Right?!

Last time, I was working on the left lower corner.  This time I've made good progress on the bottom right one.
