I have waited to do this progress post until I had finished the panel on Baroque Garden. I finished the over one stitching last night and finished the frame and backstitching tonight. Still behind by 2 months, but the next two pieces are smaller and over 2. Here is my pomegranate panel and the botanical plate that inspired it.
I also made a new start on a Drawn Thread design - Cloister Garden. This chart was hiding in my stash, having been purchased probably 7-8 years ago. I was inspired to start it as an SAL with the Stitch Specialists sister yahoo group for The Drawn Thread designs. I was almost convinced the parcel containing my fabric was well and truly lost, but it arrived a couple of days before I was going to contact the place I ordered it from. It did take almost 4 weeks to get to Australia from the USA (usually only about 2 weeks). The fabric is 32 count belfast linen in the colour Baby Lotion. The threads came with the chart. I am already loving all the specialty stitches in this design.
The colour of the fabric does not show up well in the photo.
I love seeing all the progress on everyone's blogs, even if I don't always get to comment on every post.
