Back to Alpine Seasons Garden

It's nearly a year since I last stitched on Alpine Seasons Garden. There is something satisfying about working on it, even though the section I'm working on is quite slow. This is how I left it last April

I've also completed the stitching on Blackbird Design's 'Basket of Memories ' and

Fabric: 32ct grey/silver overdyed linen
Threads: Fils à Soso - Pierre de lune (160)
stitched Blackbird Design's 'Souvenir de France'. Both of these will be finished as pincushions. Well, that's the current plan.

  7. I think I have already said it here - this Chatelaine design is my absolute favourite of hers. I just love everything on it. A very special piece. You made some nice progress on it. And two very nice BBD finishes that you have here.
