Some Project updates

 I finally got back to my Chatelaines, and here is the updated Spring Knotgarden. I finished the pink and blue border around the triangles, and started the beading and stitching of the last part. I'm thinking about leaving off the grasses between the blackwork and the triangles, because I think it looks messy and because I hate backstitch!! :)

I also made a ton of progress on Mirabilia Rose Arbour. I really thought this one was a smaller piece, but no-its really a full size. There are acres of stitching in that skirt !!!!!

Portrait of the Daughter 21 page happy Dance

I can't believe I finished the 21st page of this beautiful pattern! The last few have gone quickly, probably because it was mostly background :) So, only one more row of full pages and one row partial pages.
