I decided to dust off one of my long-neglected WIPs from the bottom of my WIP pile - Misty Morning Vineyard. I'm really enjoying stitching on this again and I really don't know why I left it so long. I love stitching with silks!! So much so that now I'm wishing I'd bought the NPIs for my as-yet-unstarted Taj kit, but I left them out in an effort to keep costs down. The colours in MMV are just so purdy, don't you think?
Talking of Chatelaines...I really like the new one, Pompeji Garden...but oh Lordy, look at the price of the kit!!! EuropeanXS have the kit for US$272, not including the chart - I nearly had heart failure when I saw that! I don't even want to work out how much that would be in Aussie dollars. I love Martina's designs but they seem to get more and more expensive all the time. There's no way I will be getting this one. I've been looking forward to the release of one she's been talking about called White Nights in St Petersburg, but if it's priced at anything like Pompeji it will be out of reach unfortunately.
