A Chatelaine Finish!

At last I have another finish! I have just finished adding the beads to Chatelaine Lavender Mandala and, even though I say it myself, it is beautiful! I have loved every single stitch of this and can't wait to do another mandala. It is so much nicer than the Christmas mystery I'm stitching and I really wish I'd gone for a bigger mandala rather than the Christmas one! So here it is.
Chatelaine Lavender Mandala.

Fabric : SMF Violets in the Shade.

Threads: DMC & Vicki Clayton silk Meadow.

Beads: Delicas.


I'm thinking of finishing this into a pinkeep in the future.

I had a very successful week on Heaven and Earth Designs Winter ( artwork by Sara Butcher). I love stitching this, although that may change when I get to a part with lots of colour changes! Lol! As you can see from the scan there is part of the angel's wing at the bottom. I am looking forward to getting back to this in about a month and once I finish one of the QS' I'm doing this will probably get more attention then. I did have a bit of a panic as I wasn't sure it would fit on the fabric but it will. LOL!

Right I had better fly as I've just nicked the PC off Abi to post this!

Oh Sally the mandala is beautiful, cant wait to start my Taj. You are doing really well on the HAED too, unlike me but then mine has been like stitching confetti from the word go.

Congratulations on the Chatelaine finish! It's beautiful, and as always, you did a beautiful job on it! I also love the intriguing look of your HAED Winter design. You really get into the larger projects, and I so admire that. I'm at a dead halt and don't seem to be able to get moving again.

Love your work!

Your mandala is gorgeous Sally, well done! I've still got loads to do on mine.
Winter is looking great as well, those wonderful blues remind me of a Cabin In The Woods lol.
