Japanese Garden Update and Fabric Stash

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Last week I had jury duty. It was an interesting experience. Jury duty threw my schedule out of whack, and I did not get a chance to stitch until Friday. I worked a bit on Japanese Garden, and I have to say, I really love the blue and gold border. I also started working on the top crane medallion. The crane is stitched over-one, and I am not the biggest fan of over-one stitching, so we will see how it goes this week :)

While away on jury duty, my Picture This Plus Christmas in July Sale order arrived. I ordered three pieces of fabric.

Mystic Cashel- I plan to use this for Little House Needlework's Snow White. I like the fabric, but I wish it had a touch more color variation. The white spots are pieces of fuzz.

Earthen Belfast - I plan to use this one for Passione Ricamo's Medieval Enchantment. This is the first Passione Ricamo pattern I bought, and I was quite surprised at how big the pattern is :)

Fresco Cashel - I liked it :) It appears slightly washed out in this scan.

In the right side bar, I added a link to my photo album containing the PTP fabric I have in case if anyone is interested. The scans are fairly accurate (at least on my monitor) of the fabric color.

Thanks for stopping by!

Your Japanese Garden piece is gorgeous.
Oh my Meslissa, I think the Snow White is going to be beautiful on the blue. I've used Earthen before and I would use it again and I do like the Fresco Cashel. I will have to check that one out.
