HAED & Chatelaine

Hi ,
First of all, welcome new followers, and thanks everybody for your lovely comments.

My ginormous 30-inch scroll rods have arrived, and boy am I thankful hubby got me the Lowery stand as a Christmas present. Not sure how I would have managed without it... Talking about hubby, the poor guy has almost no room on the couch now that I am using them, he suffers for the sake of art :)

Those scroll rods are being used for my very first full size Chatelaine, Sleeping Beauty's Castle (SBC), and here is my small start on it:

Those few stitches in the grayish color are the first I've ever done with silk, and it's like a revelation. What a pleasure it is to stitch with!

I had been wanting to start SBC for a while and have been kitting it little by little, but first, I wanted to finish another HAED page before getting to it. So here is page 2 of Wheel of Fortune:

Back to SBC now, some more lovely silks and metallics are waiting for me.
