I had such trouble stitching Rose Garden this weekend. I was basically ready to cut it into shreds and throw it to the wind. Boyfriend calmed me down and had me stop working on it that night, which was probably a good call. Going to work on it a few more days and then off to Boyfriend's on Thursday to work on College. 

I'm still catching up on blogs, slowly but surely. Thanks to everyone for their wonderful comments. I love reading them!

They all look great, but I'm particularly fond of that tiny Rose Garden! A quick question about what makes something a Mandala though? I've never stitched one and don't know much about them, but it's really pretty :)

Great progress! I see a possible College page finish in the not-so-very-distant future! :)
