New Here and a UFO!

Hi everyone! I'm new here. Thanks for letting me join! I would like to work on one of my oldest UFO's... Chatelaine Indian Summer Reflections. It was Mystery VI when I started it. I'm on part 4 and I can't remember why I put it down. Probably the Marlitt but perhaps it was to work on something new and exciting. I haven't picked it up since because it really needs 30" scrollbars and my Ergo had a really hard time holding the weight (since it only holds scrolls from one side). I ended up getting a second floorstand so that I can work on the big projects. I got a K's Creations Stowaway Floor Frame with a conversion kit for the big scrolls. It works great and is able to hold my 30" scrolls on both sides.

I would like to try to work on Indian Summer Reflections 5 times a month.

I had the same experience as GrannyAnne... I thought I had more of this done! LOL....

Anyway, thanks for letting me join!

Stacy (who has 18 UFO's.... most of which are Chatelaines....)

Looking forward to seeing your progress. Martina's designs are so lovely and BIG. My Holland mandala is 28.5 inches square when framed.

I've got this one in progress also. I'm probably about halfway done with Part 3. I know I stopped because I didn't like the way my backstitching on the flowers looked since I did 3/4 stitches on some and half stitches on others.

I'll look forward to seeing your progress!

These are lovely designs. I have never attempted one yet although I have signed up for the Castles in the Air from Papillion Designs like Jen and have just bought the material but and still deciding on the colours. Great to have another UFO to watch grow. Happy stitching

Welcome!
Can't wait to see your Chatelaine grow!

Welcome - your Chatelaine is beautiful already. But if I had to stitch with Marlitt, go ahead and shoot me and put me out of my misery! I can understand why you took a break. However, it is sooo pretty, so march on and we'll cheer you on!
