Elegance of the Orient

April 27, 2008

This is called Elengance of the Orient. It is the second (Jewels of the Orient being the first) of a series of three that I am trying to complete for my home. This is also the first time that I have used stretch bars for my work and am really enjoying it. My stitches are normally pretty even and so the Aida doesn't get too warped but the stretch bars really make it stupid-proof!

I went in to the hospital on April 29, 2008 for heart surgery and I brought this to work on. While I was asleep someone threw out my pattern because they thought it was GARBAGE!!! I am so crestfallen over this! I have contacted Dimensions (the company who make the kit) and have asked for a new pattern because I don't really want to purchase a whole new kit. I am waiting to hear back from them but neadless to say this project has been put on hold indefinately...

Did you ever continue with the Jewels of the orient pattern? Was the company able to help? I am hoping to start this same project in a few weeks.

Hope you are doing well since your heart surgery.

I finished the Jewels of the Orient project a while back and yes the kind people at Dimensions have helped me out MANY times. If you need any extra bits then drop them an email and they will mail the items over to you quite quickly! Thanks for the kind wishes for my surgery. It went perfectly smoothly and I've never felt better!
