IHSW Pictures

Finally had the chance to post my IHSW stitching.  I stitched on the Chinese Garden by Martina Rosenberg.  Oh, I also backstitched Part 1, finally!! Why didn't anyone tell me that I should be able to finish it up in a couple of hours, lol!!
Here is a picture of the whole center together.  I really hate stitching with the Eterna Silk, but the yellow flowers are beautiful stitched with it. They just pop in real life, and they are my favorite things on this project so far.

It took me a while to stitch the frames for the scenes on the bottom and the Lotus border, but they are beautiful together.

Here is my start on the Fall Scene.  I just decided since I was already stitching on the bottom, I would keep on and finish it off before I moved to the top ones.

I hope to finish the fall scene this week if all goes well.  I am not getting much sleep so I may stitch instead of sleeping.  I am going to have to add something else to stitch, lol.  I fell in love with the Russian Christmas Scene that Martina just released.  Is it bad to put one down and start on another one?  I am afraid if I put down Herbularius I won't pick it back up, but there are others that I want to stitch more.  Big decision, especially since I want to keep up with the Mystery 2012.  Ugh, I need more time to stitch Chatelaine's!!

In this garden, an abundance of beautiful stitches. We all want to embroider a beautiful two hours:)!
I also want to embroider as much design work of Martina. A new project, more and more.
I really like your embroidery from Chatelaine, choice of fabric for them.

The lotus border is gorgeous, and I agree, I think my favorite part so far has been the yellow flowers. :)
