Newest Progress

This is my latest progress..gotten quite a bit done besides a pretty large Halloween party that took about 12 hrs to decorate for and 10 minutes to take down lol. Also been pretty sick..lost my voice for about 4's back now but still doesn't sound quite right. I still cannot believe how quick I am going on this pattern. Maybe a finish by the end of the year? If so will have to start one of the other 2 in this set.

TUSAL and Cercles

This first pic is my very first update to the TUSAL. Most of the threads there are from my Cirque Des Cercles and Patchwork Sampler which is temporarily on hold. I just cannot get into stitching with lots of black right now.


I am so close to finishing page one!. Only been working on this for a little over a month. Lots of progress for me in that amount of time usually a very slow stitcher. I go to work on something else and can't because it has completely captured my attention.

End of October SAL

Here is my little bit of progress I didn't get nearly as much done as I had hoped to. But I kept ripping out the pink and still wasnt happy with it lol but finally I found one. Then today I went to get more of the orange I am using and somehow in my head I had 970 instead of the 740 that I am using lol..wouldnt be so bad if the place didnt charge .60 a skein..oh well Im sure i can use the 970 on something else =)

Cirque Update


This still seems to be going pretty fast considering all the counting and recounting..then ripping out because I thought I had made a mistake only to figure out that I had been looking at the wrong area lol. Still loving this tho and having a hard time putting it down. I am joining a weekend SAL to hopefully get even more done so may have a new progress pic on monday.

Cirque Des Cercles update

Well I had planned on only stitching on Cirque Des Cercles for one week only for going back to the Patchwork Sampler..but I have not yet been able to put it down lol so I guess I keep going till i'm bored with it. I am not sure if that will happen tho as I love the coloring and how every design is unique such fun to do :)

Progress Photos

The first picture is just to give everyone an idea of the colors I am using on Cirque Des Cercles. I plan on doing all 3 patterns in the series using these colors. All will be on fiddlers cloth..and each pattern will be using different shades...light, medium and dark.

This second photo is the little bit of a start on Cirque Des Cercles so far. Loving the purple..have decided to make a rotation between this and the Patchwork Sampler..working on it alternating weeks instead of just the weekend.

Haven't posted about Patchwork Sampler in a while so this is the latest picture..will start up on it again next monday..till then tho I am back off to Cirque Des Cercles for the rest of the evening.

New Project

Decided today to start a new weekend project so dug out my Cirque Des Cercles pattern by InkCircles. No picture progress yet as I only just finished getting my threads figured out and the fabric for right now I am working on 3 projects...a crocheted lap blanket, Patchwork Sampler and Cirque Des Circles. Hoping to have some progress pictures of all 3 sometime this week =)

New Craft

I know it's been over a month since I have posted here the main reason being I have been taking a break from stitching to learn how to crochet. I tried doing this years ago but couldn't get the hang of it..part of the reason might be that I am left handed and may not have been ready to learn how to do it then. This time tho within 10 minutes I was making a chain and within another 10 or so I was learning how to make rows..this picture is the beginning of a blanket I am making for my kitten..figured it would be nice for her since she has short hair and also be an easy first project. Got enthusiastic a few weeks ago also and started on a lap blanket for my grandmother who is 101 and in a nursing home. Hope to have some progress pics of that or my stitching soon.

The pink block is all done cept for the backstitching. So far this really is my favorite block.


Misty was laying by the stitching till she saw the camera and just had to start coming towards it because it has a cord hanging lol.

New pet and stitching



Posted by Picasa

Somehow the pics got out of order lol but I guess that is ok...This is my new kitten Misty that has been keeping me away from posting and stitching as much as I would like to with all of her energy. Will have to try and post more often now that she is more used to the place and me. Today I finished off the 3rd block and started on the diamond shapes on the bottom row. May need to click on the pic to see them really well as the yellow isn't appearing as bright as I would like it to lol.

No pictures this time but I have all of the Orange square at the end done except for the backstitching and have started on the border for the row beneath but it is going very slowly right now. I can't use my frame because the fabric is too short at the ends..should be enough there for framing tho just barely and if not maybe i can sew some fabric onto the edges that won't show up to anchor the framing a little better really not sure.

Weekend Progress

I think I spent more time watching movies this weekend then I did stitching, didn't help that my dog was very playful during the weekend..would hardly leave me or my stitching alone lol. I'm glad the purple square is done cept for the backstitching which I plan to start today. Also got the pink diamonds done, for some reason they looked offcenter the whole time I was stitching the lighter pink center. I think tho it is the color that does it because the green never felt that way lol.

First Block Finished

This block went so fast and I have absolutely enjoyed stitching it. Have already receieved many compliments by people from my apartment complex. Will be starting the 2nd block a little bit later this evening. My silly dog Kaylee is a complete camera hound and had to get up there and lay down just before I snapped the picture lol.

I started this project the same night that I finished BoINK. It is the Patchwork Sampler SAL from Catia Dias at Catia Crafts. I am really enjoying stitching this other than the part that I already had to rip out and put back in because I was off by 1 square. Why does it seem like it takes 5 minutes to rip something out but another 30 minutes to put it back in lol.
