I feel much better now that I've turned the corner and am halfway there. I definitely want to have this piece done by the end of the year. Besides there's another SAL starting up in January involving a Mirabilia piece which I want to take part in. If I haven't got this finished by then, I'll never finish it!! I really do love Cirque though. Everytime I pick up this piece I don't want to put it down. It's just so soothing to stitch on.
So that's the only stitching I have to show for now, however, I did find some stash in the mail following my return from vacation. I'd almost forgotton about some of this in my rush to get packed and away. First off is LHN Home of a Needleworker, CCN Joyful Summer, and a couple of The Cat's Whiskers Krazy Kitties including the Halloween Kitty. ( I love this one!) Then there's Dinky Dyes Mount Coot-tha and Midsummer Night Designs Forget Me Not. Now you can see why I had to hide everything to concentrate on Cirques! I was so tempted to start one of these new lovelies. Just posting them here gives me the itch to get started on one. I guess I should have used my flash on these pics but I was afraid I'd get glare from the packaging and I was in a hurry to take them. My DH was taking off with the camera today and I wanted to get these photos before he left.
Now I'm off to see Mama Mia with my friend Michelle. I saw this one already last week with my son but Michelle hasn't seen it yet and knowing her DH wouldn't accompany her I jumped at the chance to see it again. It really is a fun flick and besides I don't mind looking at Pierce Brosnan one bit!
