Chatelaine update

This past week I have been working on the Chatelaine - Herbularius ...  so far I have now almost finished the first section - section 1 of 12 ! This centre section measures approx 6 x 6 inches and is a nice design in itself .... could be used as a box top, biscorno etc .... however I will carry on and stitch the whole design ...  it has been lovely to work on so far and I think I will bead this section before moving on to the next ... it is being stitched on a lovely hand dyed fabric from polstitches which comes in shades of greens, blues etc ...

Teejay this has taken me around two weeks ... I have started the beading as I usually bead as I go on such large projects .. I have sent for the bead pack for Fairytale, and will start sorting out threads soon ... most of the threads on this piece already stitched are the DMC alternatives !
