The Stitchers Garden was amazingly wonderful. I learned so much about Medieval from Tanya and Chatelaine stitching, I was taking notes. And the Shop Owner, was just so helpful. But first some wips.
And here is my very first WIP of Medieval. This is the very center of the design. If you can tell, it is a fountain and water will be shooting out of it, but I will add that later. I am so proud of me, as I had never done Rhodes Stitches before - yes I am serious, and I learned something new..... Yes Sir, old brain, new stuff. I did not even know there were stitches called Rhodes. I also used petite treasure braid for the first time. (purchased from Stitchers Garden). What a wonderful High Gloss thread. It was so easy to work with.....
This upcoming week, I am going to work a little on my HAEDs too.
This is the 1st HAED I ever started, it is a Story Keep and I only have the one page left, and as you can see I have traveled down to the bottom of the page. I would like to see if I can do some power stitching this week on her. We will see how it goes. As Nikki mentioned in her blog, she stitches her HAED by column, this idea will work great for this chart, the lines of her dress go Down and I think working by column will work nicely. So fingers crossed we will see how it goes.
