Taj Is Going Away.....


...for this time round but I have really enjoyed stitching it. A little disappointed that I did not get more done though. We had out grandson with us this weekend and not a lot of anything gets done during his visits. The colours are far prettier than any photo shows but I do feel that some of the beautiful Caron Waterlillies and Dinky-Dyes silks lose something amongst all the other colours. There is not really enough of them in one place to show the varigations. However that said the overall effect is lovely and I have only done a tiny bit of it so far so they may look different later.
Although I am not looking forward to it I do think Coast to Coast will have to come out tomorrow and have some more backstitching done on it.
Thanks you again for all the lovely comments they are so much appreciated.

That's a great start Helen, how can you bear to put it down? (LOL) The colours are so pretty. Can't wait to see more of your progress on it.

What a gorgeous start Helen! You've finally tipped me over the edge and I had to order the chart earlier today lol. No clue when I'll start it though as I've got to save up for the kit first lol, but I'll be following your progress with great interest.
