Taj Tuesday once more

Here is this week's progress:

The fabric colour has come out slightly truer, although it still looks more blue than it does IRL. I love how Taj seems to change shape each week. I saw a programme the other evening where Monty Don (a British gardener) is going 'Around the World in 80 Gardens' and this week he was visiting the actual Taj Mahal garden! He spoke about an area behind the Taj Mahal which they have discovered was originally also part of the entire garden and the tomb itself was to have been the centrepiece of the garden. Most interesting indeed....

I was amazed and thrilled to have been one of the finalists in the Silkweaver Showcase 2007! My Crescent Dreams was there, along with two other CDs. Congratulations to all the winners. I loved the large category winner - the fabric that the stitcher chose for 'The Kiss' was absolutely beautiful.

Andy loved his framed Mabel & Bee by the way. Thank you for all your lovely comments!

Taj is so pretty Sam. The colours really pop on the fabric.

Congratulations on being a finalist in the Silkweaver showcase:)

I'm really enjoying watching this garden "grow", it's looking fabulous. The fabric colour really makes the thread colours stand out beautifully. Well done on being a Silkweaver finalist, they have some beautiful stitching on there.

Congratulations and lovely stitching! The design is very peaceful.
