Cirque des Carreaux update…

Well, I finally picked this piece back up the other day and have put quite a few stitches into it. Here is a picture of where I left it when last it was seen:

And here is what it looks like today:

I am about halfway through page 1. I switched back to the hoop as it is easier to handle, even though there is a lot of excess, soon-to-be stitched, fabric hanging over it.

Excellent progress -- is the last pic accurate for color? If so the thread is gorgeous.

Marcy-the last picture is in a "Pop Art" format that is associated with my camera. But the colors are fairly close. I wanted to show it with a little pizzazz alongside the normal photo.

also - I noticed you linked to In Stitches in Michigan, but your location is Zephyrhills, which I know is a Coach/motor home place (my uncle/aunt and dad/stepmother stay there in the winter) - are you from Michigan??

Sally said...

Gorgeous progress :) Love the colours you're using.

Love your colour choice for this. Cant wait to see more of it now.

@Courtney: Yes, I am from Michigan, but I live in Zephyrhills. LOL I do live in a mobile home park with my dad, but the town has been trying to shed it's "retirement community" image for many years, unsuccessfully I might add. I still have lots of family and friends in mid-MI so I try to get back as often as possible. Thanks for the link!!

Thanks to everyone for your comments! They are always welcome and appreciated!!!
