The Medieval Town Mandala

Yesterday I spent some wonderful time working on The Medieval Town Mandala from Chatelaine.

I love, love, love, LOVE this piece. It's entirely done in specialty threads, no DMC whatsoever, and it's just a wonderful pleasure to work on. This is how I far I got yesterday:

I'm holding off on the beading until the end, but I am doing the backstitching and specialty stitches as I go along because this piece is entirely black and white rather than color and the backstitching can be very difficult to see. I figure doing it as I go along will be better for my sanity than waiting until the end!

Until next time!


  1. Beautiful stitching. Love the colors. It's a beautiful chart!

  2. That must be so much fun! I would definitely do the back stitching as you go because its so much easier that way.

  3. That's such a beautiful pattern! Great progress :D

  4. A lovely Chateliane! Every time I see one I think it needs to go on the wishlist hah.
