Secret Garden or Mystery X


This is a Chatelaine design which I put to one side over a year ago. I got quite a shock when I unwrapped it because I thought I had done more of it than this. I put it away because I wanted to start another design by Martina Weber(Chatelaine). I think her designs are lovely but they are expensive if you use the silks rather than DMC. They are also large. One end is practically finished and one of the reasons I stopped was because I began to think the borders were a bit OTT. I am sure that with all your support I will finish it. At the momect I am planning on spending a couple of afternoons a week on this probably not starting till June.

I wouldn't have the patience for it either but it looks great and I am sure a little bit every day will help.

Wow -- it's looking lovely. I have several chatelaines that I have not been brave enough to start so my hat is off to you.

It's so lovely! You just must finish this.
If only b/c those chatelaines are not cheap either! ;)
Can't wait to see some progress pics.

I guess you do have another UFO! This is going to be gorgeous. This one looks as though it will take a while. Can't wait to see your progress.

I'm another one who is still on Part 2. These take quite a bit of dedication to finish (I have a few Chatelaines--none of them finished.) I'll be cheering you on!

This looks a very complicated one although I bet it'll be fantastic when completed. Hope you haven't too many of these in your UFO stash or you may have to build some extra walls somewhere.Watching out for progress.
