Release: “The Sweet Garden of Elizabeth I”!


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 

Please read:

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
