Rose Garden Progress Report

Hi all! Here is the first WiP picture of my new obsession which I showed off in my last post. I finished one page of part 2 (and a little from the page below) and now am taking a break from over 1 on 25 ct lugana to stitch another of the Val's Stuff monthly cats. I got distracted last week by a new book by one of my favorite Sci-Fi authors, which cut into my stitching time. Who knew only six DMC colors could be so pretty! I really love the flower circle.

I am trying to stick to my rotation, so I'll be getting back to Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow soon, but also have another floss toss to show off the fabric I got for the new Chatelaine, the Hummingbird mandala.....only two silks (in front) might be an issue on the blue opalescent 28ct jazlyn, so I will watch them carefully when I get started, probably next month sometime. I still have to pull all the DMC for this as well. It's really hard to decide what to stitch when there are so many wonderful designs that are saying that I just *have* to stitch them!


  1. The flower circle is very pretty.
    And the Hummingbird floss toss makes me dribble ;o)

  2. I love that swirly motif! And I'm so on the fence for the hummingbirds, but with so many Chatelaines waiting in the queue I really shouldn't... Have a great weekend, Kathy!

  3. What a gorgeous design, I'm looking forward to watching it grow. Happy stitching.

  4. Your Rose Garden piece is gorgeous! Is there anywhere we can see a photo of the complete design?

  5. Very nice! Love the flower circle.

  6. Christine, look at the previous blog entry and you can see a pic of the whole piece!

    thanks to everyone for the nice comments!

  7. Very pretty start! The flower circle is cute!

  8. Hi there,

    I'm just LOVING that flower circle and the colors you are using.

    Your Holland is gorgeous, too. A friend of mine is doing that. I've done plenty of other Chatelaines. Just finished Medieval Town, all but the beads. I got interested in Flower Power and saw that you had started that once upon a time.

    I was wondering if you ever did finish it?

    I was so crazy about it after I saw the hand dyed/painted fabric that I just HAD to have my own! lol
    I only started mine last week.


  9. Hi Narita! Thanks for the nice comments! I have not stitched on my Flower Power in ages, as it needs to be re-centered on the fabric. Saw your message on the Needle and Thread stitching board and left a longer message...please post some progress pictures there for me...I need some inspiration!
