Progress Pics - Rose Garden

It really is interesting to watch a project progress - especially a large one. Once upon a time, I wasn't able to stitch on the Rose Garden without getting flashbacks to being at the oncologist's office receiving treatments. Now, I am once again falling in love with this piece and I love to see how it is progressing. Below are pics from where I started out at the beginning of the month to last night.

This picture was taken a long time ago, but is where I started out. You can also see it in the Gallery at

This is where I was on Saturday night. I didn't take any pictures on previous days - I really didn't think I had done all that much.

I guess I was wrong!

This was August 5th, 2006

Sunday evening, after a lovely afternoon stitching with my local friends, I had nearly finished the big rose.

I also reached the bottom of the trellis.

It was at this point that I became enthusiastic once again for this piece.

Monday night, I finally finished the rose.
It still needs a lot of back stitching, but you can tell how pretty
it is coming out.
At this point, I find it hard to believe that I ever put this down!
Then, to the right, on the sidebar, you can see where I left off last night.
I was only able to finish the leaves around the big rose, nevertheless, it's a lot of fun to see this pictures that show how work progresses, isn't it?
Hugs to all

I'm so excited you are stitching this piece! It's the companion piece to Gathering Honey, which is my WIP. I plan to stitch the Rose Garden next. If you run across any errors in the pattern, please share them with me, too. Your stitching is beautiful. I look forward to your next update.
