Tiny bit more

I have realised that if I can finish something else by th 24th of June, then that would mean I have finished 7 things in 12 months…. which isn’t too bad…
I started Cirque des Carreaux on the 10th of June, 2009, and am up to the last 1/3. I am almost at the outer edge of the top left hand corner now:

I should try to get this one done in the next 3 weeks… it is doable, I am just such a flibbertygibbet when it comes to stitching one at a time….

I didn’t get so much done…

I managed to spill coffee on the edge of the fabric – not the stitching thank goodness, just the fabric, so it spent the day being washed and drying. It was rainy so it took quite a while to dry. I managed to get part of her fin done though…

While it was drying I did a little Cirque des Carreaux

And worked on dyeing a little more – trialed another combo for a friend- so here are the two
experiments in dyeing

Over half done… YAY!!!

So I am still stitching Cirque Des Carreaux. The goal was to get the middle two pages done, which I a have almost achieved and then I will go back to Waiting for Ships. So with a little over a page and a half left, here is my cirque:

I have ordered some white linen and evenweave to dye. I have pink, coral, navy, mid and light blues, turquoise, green, and peach dyes to play with at the moment. I think there might be one or two more colours, but I can’t recall off the top of my head. What colours do people think I should try in combination?

Cirque des Carreaux again…

I think its slightly more than half done now 😀

Today I added a little to Cirque des Carreaux and was reminded again how much I like this colour combo. I think I want to do something similar but with pink thrown in for good measure…

And I finally unpicked and started to restitch my part 4 of Papillion Creations MSAL Castles in the Air. I am not sure where she is taking this. I am 4 parts behind once this is finished, but they are small parts so shouldn’t take long to do.

Cirque des Carreaux update

I have been rather ambivalent about stitching at the moment… I want to stitch something but keep getting distracted after 10 or so stitches.. However tonight I finally did another diamond in CdCx:
