WOW: Herbularius Part 1

After a lot of beading which seemed to take forever, but which is so beautiful, I have nearly completed part 1 of Herbularius by Châtelaine.

Those dark blue lines need to be stitched in preparation for part 2 which has already been released and I need to find four golden beads which will fit in the pink jessica stitches. I do have the Aurum bicones which should go there, but I'm not sure I like them. Maybe something round would be better. I did the same for Victorian Garden and I like how it looks.

I did a needleturn demo at a quilt show in Holland, in a beautiful church, Pieterskerk in Leiden. Alas I do not have any pictures, because I was too busy explaining to all the eager ladies who want to learn how to do needleturn applique. It was my first time and I enjoyed it very much.

Edited to add: Rennie kindly sent me this picture of my 'booth' at the quilt show. Thank you, Rennie.

On the right you see Jacqueline of Samsara Quilting in the middle Rennie herself and on the left you see me, looking rather puzzled by what my visitor is trying to tell me :o)

Now it is time to pick up one of my quilting/patchwork projects once again. They have been sadly neglected since the show last Friday.

Thanks for your lovely comments.

It's really beautiful, Anne Marieke! I used to pass the Pieterskerk all the time during my years in Leiden... a long time ago :-)

Those colours are amazing!
What threads are you using? Especially the turquoise, it's so vibrant.

Thanks for the reply about the special threads, they are obviously worth buying for these gorgeous designs!
