Now, back to Medieval Town Mandala (Part 2)

Well, this is how far I managed to get with Part 2 tonight... lots and lots of Petite Treasure Braid! In fact, the majority of Part 2 is to be stitched with three different shades of gold Petite Treasure Braid.... sparkly :-) So, of course, my anticipated rotation schedule for November is already messed up... I knew that would happen, but my intentions were good :-)

Q. If you have stitched for a while, can you usually pick out the DMC colors you need from memory when you go to your LNS? (For example, you know that 610 is a brown.)

A. Yep.

I got this really pretty Heritage Stitchcraft kit on ebay today, The Flower Seller - full kit, really cheap! I am so excited! I think this one is so elegant!

I really enjoyed watching The Perfect Mantoday - really cute movie - I didn't know what to expect, and I was really pleasantly surprised.

Stitched on today: Legends of the Dragons for a bit at work (yet another stitching schedule change!) and Medieval Town Mandala

The Mandala is looking wonderful, it's going to be so pretty. Yikes! 3 differant shades, good luck. I love the flower seller, never seen her before, gotta add her to the list!

Wow the Mandala looks great. I've never done one of these Chatelaine pieces before, I thought they were too expensive for me.
Love the flower seller, I've seen it stitched up and it's stunning.

Mandala is looking fab! You've done so much already.

I love the Flower Seller - such a pretty design. I've got quite a few of the Heritage 'Silhouette' series myself.

Congrats on the eBay find!! I love those times when I find something dirt cheap there. (and I think I may have "found" you on eBay....were you bidding on the big lot of hand-dyed fabbies that finally sold for over $200??)

MTM is looking great - I'm a personal fan of metallic braids ... just LOVE to see the sparkle showing - unfortunately not always the most fun to stitch though ;) I'm enjoying seeing this one growing :)
