Herbularius


First of all thank you very much for your lovely comments on my Orkney skies photographs.

This afternoon I picked up a parcel from the post office containing most of the silk threads for Herbularius, the new Mandala by Chatelaine:







This is what it should look like in a year's time:






Here are some detail picture of the materials I have collected so far. There are some silks still to come and also some beads and crystals.























I will be back tomorrow for WOW (Wips On Wednesdays) organized by Esther Aliu, the designer of Heart's Desire.












At the moment I'm working on my first block 4 and I'm hoping to have more to show tomorrow.
