For those that follow me, you are probably going “Oh my goodness, 3 posts in as many days…. what is happening???”. Well, I just randomly decided I needed to update this blog a tad more regularlyL* 😀
Anyway, I haven’t worked on this one for a while, since a fateful frogging accident, so I finally pulled this spot to pieces and restitched it:
And started on the next spot:
As far as Watergarden goes, I am a little annoyed at myself… I could have sworn that I had all the colours I required, however, I am missing a dark green, and have run out of the dark brown. As I have converted it to HDF it is quite annoying, as it means ordering for 2 skeins of floss ;(
Anyway, there was a minute amount of progress on this one too:
Anyway, adeus until next time
*inspiration to post will probably wain as have a 46 hour working week this week… blech!!!

I started this about two weeks ago just after finishing sleeping beauty. The colors are quite bright. I am stitching it on grey 32CT linen a friend bought for me. I have enough for both winter water garden and this one. I am not sold on spring or autumn Water gardens though…

I have started Chatelaine’s Watergarden (will post photos later), which reminded me how much I love Chatelaine’s, and so I have decided to finish kitting up the other three Chatelaine patterns I have – Winter Watergarden, Sleeping Beauty Mandala (Anniversary) and Serengeti, which has meant that I am back looking at European Cross Stitch’s webpage.
This is very bad for me as it means I am tempted to buy another pattern or two, and kit it up. It would be a belated birthday present to myself. I am tossing up between 3 of them:
Japanese Zen Garden:
Seville Alcazar Garden:
And Hawaiian Garden Mandala:
Hawaii is beautiful, but it is expensive as it has so many beads, and metallics, but as it is available as a chart pack, it is cheaper than the online classes.
I haven’t bought much in the last 2 years – just a few HAED patterns, Ink Circles RYO and Cirque de Coeurs, and one kit.
On the other hand, I want a few Mirabilia patterns too:
Siren and the Shipwreck (Mermaid collector that I am)
I bought Aurora which looks like she goes with them:
I love the colours in the sky in this one.
Anyway, I really can’t decide what to buy!!! Too many things I want! Any thoughts????
