It's a happy dance

I have completed Mouth of Flower. This is my first finish this year! This design was a pleasure to stitch and the end result is amazing!. I could not take a decent picture of this as the fabric always comes out a little washed out. This is the best one!

Top mosque

The first mosque of this magnificent design is completed. The backstitching with the treasure braid is a killer, but so worth it in the end, the sparkle in this part is amazing!

Some eye candy

April has been stressful for me in so many little ways, so to cheer myself up, I've ordered another Chatelaine kit. I am going to let the pictures do the talking as there are many pretties in this one.

Here, I present you...Venice Mandala
The beautiful package

The floss toss

Gloriana Threads

Treasure braid

Silk n Colors

Princess pretty

EdMar and beads
 Lets see how long I will resist before starting this one...

Garden grow

The second part of this lovely design is completed. It was quite a quick stitch except those queen stitches! I am still not totally happy how they look, I might rip them out again.*sigh*

Part 6 of Odds and Ends is completed. The deadline is so close for this one, there is no way that I will stitch it in time. Luckily, this design can be purchased directly from Tams. I will be buying the chart once the deadline is over.

Satin Stitches

I am so loving stitching this part, especially the border. The thread used in the border is Mississippi Mud from The Thread Gatherer. It is gorgeous!
