Today I received my last package of threads for the Greek Mandala and I can't help but share:
Caron Collections Waterlilies and Dinky Dyes Perle:
Thread Gatherer Silk n'Colors:
Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid SPARKLY!:
Delica beads and Swarovski crystals:
All of it pictured on the piece of 32-count white Belfast. I think Heli and I, from Heli's Stitchery, are going to try to start our first large Chatelaine's together. She is still waiting for her threads and fibers to arrive, and that will give me time to sort things out and set it up - preparing it for stitchery. Hopefully my busy little fingers can help themselves and keep me from stitching it.
For IHSW this weekend I will be stitching on Middle Earf, as Boyfriend has picked it. I've been working on it a bit since the last update on it, so I'll post a before and after.
I've started labeling my stitching with my name and date because I've learned, from the HAED BB, that some people have been using other people's WIPs, etc. for the reward program and/or as their own work. Wishing to avoid that, I've added a little typing on the side - hope it doesn't bother too much.
Have a great IHSW, everyone! You can still sign up, just by clicking the little hermit crab on the right.
