March IHSW

I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was gorgeous here-warm and sunny :)

This weekend I finished Cattleya Orchid by Chatelaine!! It is my first finished Chatelaine, but not my first Chatelaine start. Japanese Garden was my first, and hopefully I will finish that in a few months (I am aiming for May). While I was beading away, I noticed that part of the gold border was supposed to have green beads in it. Ooops! I made the executive decision to leave it alone since I did not feel like pulling out those stitches.

And some close-ups:

I can't get over how sparkly this is! When I walk by it, it just shimmers! And it doesn't even have that many beads in it. I am quite pleased with it :)

Lastly, a picture of my other orchid. It just started blooming :)


Thanks for stopping by!

I just love the Chatelaine designs, even the smaller ones are really challenging and beautiful to look at when they are ready. And the your garden is coming along nicely!
