IHSW May

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

For IHSW, I worked on part 2 of Moyland Castle. I did not quite finish it (in part because I finished reading Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris). I still have to fill in the Jessica flowers (all the small open squares) and do some outlining. I loved the Algerian eyelets, which were stitched with Tulip Festival by Gloriana. It is such a pretty mix of colors :) This half-circle garden is repeated on all four sides, so I still have a lot left to do for this part.


I look forward to seeing everyone's stitching progress! Have a great week :)

Oh it's GORGEOUS! I think working with variegated silks is my favorite, especially if there's a lot of color change in them - it makes it so much fun to stitch! Your progress is just magnificent - makes me want to pick up my Greek Mandala again!
