The end of the weekend

I would like to say thanks for everyone's kind comments, and thanks for taking the time to look.  It is nice to think that my stitching may make you think about doing a or another chatelaine or other project.  I do get ideas from the blogs I follow.

It is the end of another IHSW (international hermit and stitching weekend) and I have managed a little bit of stitching, but not as much as I would have liked.  In the time I found I have worked on Baroque Garden and have finished the left hand garden of Part 11.  This was last month's part and I still have a similar right hand one to do.  I think I had about 2/3 of it done at the beginning of the weekend, and there was quite a bit of backstitching in gold which is not so easy to see in the photo.


Having finished this bit I have decided to do part 12 as I go across to the other side.  There are 2 small borders and one longer middle section.  I did one of the small borders tonight


I am going to work on doing as much as I can of this one this week in a vain attempt to catch up by the end of the month.

Hope everyone else found lots of time for stitching this weekend

Beautiful work, Wendy! It's a bit difficult, yes, to see the backstitch in gold, but I do see it. I love the colors in this wonderful design!
