The best thing about stitching Chatelaines are watching the designs take shape. Over the past couple of days, I would pick one color and stitch that in the center and take a picture. I loved seeing the center of Herbularius come to life, different colors, different shapes all forming as I stitch. There are four colors and so here are four pictures for everyone to enjoy.
It's coming along pretty well. I have a lot to do still, but I want to at least finish Part 1 this month, and get a start on Part 2 at least.
I finally dredged up some courage and contacted SW on how upset I was with the four 1/2 yds of Ametrine lugana I ordered. I ordered four together so they would be dyed at the same time and look similar, but that wasn't the case. I also told them that I didn't appreciate that they had big brown patches on them that didn't match the rest of the colors on the fabric. I haven't heard back from them, but that was a lot of money to spend and I expected them to be done right. I knew it wouldn't be the same as what I am stitching on now, but I expected some similarities of color.
Happy stitching this week! I am hoping to stitch more on Herbularius, cause I really need to get back to my Hummingbird soon.
