This one seemed to take ages…

Cirque des Cercles

Also did a little more beading on Stargazer. She is not abandoned or forgotten!

Stitches and Spice are getting silk/bamboo fabric in. If they have it at the show I will get some I think.

I have somehow miscounted on my New World, so will have to go back and revisit it sometime….

I am contemplating Chatelaine patterns… they are very expensive though, both to buy and set up… So I think maybe not…

Cirque and floss

I have started on the bottom circles on my Cirque de Cercles, and they were going fine, until I realised I have miscounted… in 2 separate places. Luckily it was a quick fix, but still…. sigh…

So here is the cirque after this evening
CDC 3.6

Cirque 3.6

I have been tired and not feeling like stitching just in case I do miscount, so what better to do that put floss on bobbins. I am sure once I am finished I will find I have multiple skeins of some colours, and of course, none of the colours I am actually looking for when I am kitting things up. I am working my way through some of the greens at the moment:

And I got another lot of silk skeins and spools. I love silk for stitching. Its just so soft and smooth, and it was so nice it arrived today (I went to ride home from work and found my bike had a flat tyre, so instead of taking 10-15 minutes to ride home – in the rain- I had to walk home which took about half an hour…)

Just a little more Cirque

The bottom corner is done. Tiny little mistake – see if you can work out where. I quite like it.
