Mini Mandala Mystery

Here is part 1 of MMM01. Since I have MXI all caught up I figured I would catch up on this one. I am stitching it on cream 32ct Belfast linen. I'm using all DMCs except for two of the variegated that are SNCs. I was also going to use Mill Hill beads and I had worked out the conversion, but when I started to put them on I didn't like how they lay on the 32ct. I really think MHs are better used on 28ct. So I contacted Cindy at ECC and asked her if I could order just the Delicas from her as I already have the Swarovski crystals. She emailed my back and said yes. I have to say if you ever need anything for Chatelaine patterns, this is the place. She answered me in less than a day. I've heard others talk about the customer service there and I have to agree. She is really great. Well, I'm off to work on part 2 now.
