Convent's Herbal Garden Part 3


I finished the third part, but of course I messed up so many times that I ran out of my kit floss (nothing new). Matt went with me to the Needleworks to get some more Caron Waterlilies. Ouch, expensive! But at least now I don't have to twiddle my thumbs while I wait on floss to come in.

The color's off in the photo -- the fabric is actually white.

I also bought some new knobs for my floor stand. I get corrosion from the constant movement of steel on brass. Am I the only one?

It is stunningly beautiful!

Wonderful stitching. I don't use a floorstand now, but when I did I used to get blackness in between washer and nuts etc.

You are making great progress on this piece.

I have never stitched a Chatelaine but I would love to, one day! I think I'd have to go for the DMC conversion though.
