You have waited so long: Finally, I can announce the release of “The Sweet Garden of Elizabeth I”!
Reading the description of the designer I do think that this design can be seen as not completely finished as the amount of bling is – for a Châtelaine design – still quite moderate. I can not guarantee the design to match the descriptions below in every part. Nevertheless, the preview matches the design, it is rich of details, special stitched and beads. And who knows – maybe you feel inspired to add even a bit more sparkle to your liking
This design comes without instructions for special stitches and backstitch. If you feel like needing a bit of help with this, please team up with your fellow-stitchers in the Châtelaine Support Group on Facebook. If you aren’t sure how a stitch is done, you can find lots of instructions on YouTube.
To make stitching through the rich range of symbols and stitches a bit easier, this design comes with some help, all included in the one file you get after purchase:
Version 1: All stitches in color, backstitch as complete lines, beads as colored dots
Suitable for general cross stitch, special stitches, and backstitch
Version 2: All stitches in b/w, backstitch as complete lines, beads as black dots
Suitable for general cross stitch if you prefer seeing colors as symbols
Version 3: All stitches in color, no backstitch, beads as colored symbols
Suitable for beading
Version 4: All stitches in b/w, no backstitch, beads as b/w symbols
Suitable for beading if you prefer seeing colors as symbols
