  2. Chris this is just gorgeous...I don't think I have seen 'feather' stitch like this before its so beautiful with all the beads and different knots...How on earth have you done all those beads around the centre piece...also is your background glittery or is just that light....I can see why you enjoy this challenge as every week you produce another stunning creation...

  5. Love your mandela and the way you have used a garden theme to display your stitching. The colours stand out against that gorgeous metal disc.
