1st Goal Achieved

Yes I have achieved my first goal of the year, but it is a bit of a cheat as it was just to buy a chart.   Chinese Garden Mandala by Chataleine Designs.  It's a beautiful design with lots of specialty stitches.  I've also given in and bought fabric, thread and beads.  The original design calls for lots of different specialty but one type that is used quite a lot is no longer made, so I've decided to go for the DMC conversion (which also makes it a lot cheaper).  The chart is here (the advantage of pdf download), beads are on there way from the USA and fabric and threads from the Sew and So.  I will have to resist the temptation to start this though.  I really must finish something else first.

Happy Stitching.

Well done in achieving your first goal! From my understanding, Chataleine designs are quite large and fairly complicated you have my admiration wishing to start one. :)
