I am just in awe of your incredible work. Are the gardens hard to do? or just time consuming? (I'm really good at specialty stitching, so that won't be an issue)

Absolutely gorgeous, Meari! Thank you for sharing and inspiring. I have Weeping Willow Court and Mystery Castle K in stash and keep pushing them back for other things--this is really making me want to start one!

This is a stunning project Meari! I always envy those who work on Chatelaine's. Do you ever get bored with stitching the same segments over 4 times?

BW said...

Such beautiful work! Perhaps someday I'll do Chatelaine work.
