Starting January 1st, I will be starting Cirque des Cercles as a SAL with a friend.

Hope everyone has a great New Years Eve

Hi Everyone

Firstly I would like to thank you all for taking part in this blog, I have truly loved seeing all the beautiful stitching, and seeing them all has made me stitch on mine from time to time.
I have updated the lists in the side bar,If you think I have missed you off please let me know. I will be doing the draw tomorrow 1st Jan2010.
And I will be running the same thing next year if anyone has any others they would like to finish!!
I do have a little surprise, Tracy of Ink Circles has kindly donated three charts, so as well as Anitas gift cert, one person will get that plus a chart, and I will have two runners up who will get a chart each.
I hope that's okay!!

Happy New year to you all!!!

Tanglewood - December progress

I stitched a few more branch outlines.  I was hoping to finish this project in a year but ahh well life does have a way of getting in the way.  I have enjoyed all your comments and looking at everyone's projects and seeing the impact of various thread choices.  I hope everyone continues to post next year. 

Happy New Year!

Hazel's December finish!

I actually finished this late in November as I couldn't wait any longer! But finally I have one big TA DAAAA finish! I can't thank Rachael enough for doing this sal. I started this in 2007 and it was slow slow slow. So this SAL has really helped me to get this finished and I am so glad it is!

Finished end Nov 2010!!

stitched on 32ct mulberry linen using Thread Gatherer's Silkn Colors in Spring Frocks
More pics on my own blog.

Bonnie's November update

This has been one crazy month for me!
I actually just got home from my first CGA Exam. (for non-canadians, it is an accounting designation program).
During November, I did stitch on my Cirque and Bramble, but I do not have pics to share.
I have managed to get in 10 months so fiqured it wasn't a big deal missing one month.
I fully expect to have some great progress pics for December!

November report

I have stitched on an IC this month in fact I finished 2 of them (both freebies) and made them into a biscornu for an exchange but rather stupidly sent off the finished article without taking any pics and it's not arrived at it's new home yet so I can't use her pics either :(


A little progress for Rachael

Doing this on Black one over one,can't find the last pic sorry.

Tanglewood - November progress

Well rather than kid myself I would get anymore stitching done this month I decided to take a picture and fold up shop.  I have two other pieces I want to work on so if I get any stitching done it will be on those.  Since work got in the way last month here it is September to November.

You are probably wondering what the prize is going to be for the incentive prize draw.
Well for those of you who have posted 10 out of twelve months or have had a finish in the last year, In January your names will go into a pot and a winner will be drawn.

So I will have a $25 Gift certificate for the winner...

...but wait that's not all!

The Gift cert is to spend at Anita's little stitches and she is generously doubling that to $50 cert!

Isn't that wonderful!! yes a $50 gift certificate to spend at Anita's shop,

Isn't that great!! Thank you Anita!!

I hope that encourages you to get those last two posts in for this year

Jill's October (and Aug, and Sept) progress
