Chatelaine framed and other updates

Yesterday I picked up my framed Chatelaine, Celtic Garden Mandala, from my LNS. It was quite fun, because there was a workshop going, and there I was, showing off and being proud :) And still no voice, so all I could do was whisper, giggle and show a big smile. I'm sure I showed that smile to all the stitchers who were ah -ing an oh- ing! The framer did an outstanding job, so I already know who is to frame the next finish LOL. This is the last blogpost I'm going to talk about her, time for something new! I will put her away in the sidelines.



In the meantime I started a new SAL, Mary Wigham. Interested? You can find her here, free to download. Quite some time ago, I purchased a big piece of 40 ct R&R Fabric. And the moment I saw the Mary Wigham Sampler, this piece of fabric came into my mind. It sure was to be meant to be Mary Wigham fabric. I stitch it one over two and bless my Ottlamp for having a magnifier!



I can't help myself talking about Chatelaine, but now it will be Holland Springtime, started some weeks ago.



And my HOHRH is getting a little bit progress on the second house. Being at home from work had its advantages LOL

Oh just lovely!!! I like your framer too -- you deserved to show off your wonderful finish in front of all those ladies. I'm looking forward to seeing your next Chatelaine -- it's one I was tempted to get. I like your other WIP as well. Feel better -- hope your voice comes back soon!

Gorgeous framing on the Celtic Garden!! And how on earth can you stitch on so many large projects at the same time? Oh wait, I do that too... lol. They're all lovely, and all ones I want to do too (except Houses of HRH, that's already done). Great stitching!
