One of my favorite cross-stitch designers posted an in-progress mockup of her newest design on Facebook today. Her name is Martina Rosenberg — Chatelaine Designs — and her claim to fame is designing gorgeous mandala-style gardens from different places and eras. They have Swarovski crystals and are stitched with silks, and they are usually around 25-28″ square, although some have been a little smaller or larger. Truly works of art, with great attention to detail!
The one she is designing now is Chinese Garden, which will obviously be a companion. I’m excited! It already looks beautiful and she’s not even done yet! And I *love* phoenixes. Like so many of hers, this will be a must-have.
