Olympic stitching

I popped in to the Chatelaine bulletin board a couple of days ago and saw that they were running Olympic stitching again, so I couldn't resist signing up. I did it in 2006 for the winter Olympics and had such fun. I even managed to get a gold medal!


That seems a lifetime ago though and I had a LOT more spare time. Still, it's just for fun.

I'm going to be working on Pompeii Garden, which has been put aside since January 2007! I think I decided to work on Evening in the Park for my SAL with Lina and could only cope with one big Chatelaine at a time, but it's criminal that it's been so long since it last saw the light of day. I got it out yesterday and it's gorgeous. Here's where I am now:


We'll just have to see how much I can get done in the next couple of weeks. Not an awful lot I suspect but it's great to be working on it again.

  2. Yay Nicki! I was wondering when you were going to pull this back out ;) I LOVE this design and I love the fabric you chose for it - it's a Kiwi Illusions, right? (can't remember which, though)... Enjoy your stitching and the Olympics!

  4. Pompeii! I loved this when you were stitching it, I've missed seeing the updates.

    So glad that it's come back out to play again.

    Beautiful stitching, as always. I've even managed a humbug just recently :)
