First Saturday in July

Okay, it's the first Sunday, but the weather was so beautiful that I was out more than in yesterday - this time of year you have to take advantage of the low heat and humidity days when they come around - and missed posting.  So the first Saturday of the month means it's YOTA time.  The YOTA SAL is hosted at Pull the Other Thread and focuses on stitching on those WIPs that may have been languishing for, in my case, months years decades I do have several that are well over the decade mark but they haven't yet hit their second... yet.
My focus the last week has been Chatelaine's Secret Victorian Garden.  I found two separate areas that had counting mistakes one thread off on each fortunately, they were sort of free floating individual motifs so they didn't impact any other bits so I only had to frog and re-stitch those two motifs.  Here is where it was:


And here is where I left it:


Here's a close up of one corner:


There will be beads in the Jessica flowers so the centers will eventually be, well, centered.  I started part 12 on the two sides with the thought that I was almost finished, I conveniently forgot that the bit rolled on the rods is *really* empty.

Secret Garden is gorgeous! There is just so much detail in every area of this design, you can spends hours looking at each photo.
