Medieval Town Mandala - So Behind!

I started this late - back in May, when the rest of the group started last October. Right now, I'm working on Part 3 of 12. I really like the way this is turning out - each piece is so much more detailed than the overall picture. It's with silk, too, so I love the feel. The tons of Treasure Braid in Part 2 (the golden outline) were a pain to work with. They twist a lot, but the effect is worth the pain. Since my husband took this picture, I've finished the backstitching for the flowers around the outside. Decided it was good to do them so I can place the butterflies more accurately - they're all over one.

Oh my that's a beautiful piece!

Thank you! I've really come to love the detail of Chatelaine. It's going to be huge, though.
