A new WIP

A few weeks ago I was struck with the completely insane idea of doing Cirque de Cercles entirely in beads and after much head scratching over what colours I wanted and then what shades I wanted of those colours I ordered the beads.
Today I finally managed to make a start and here are the first 3 rows, only another 240 something to go

CdC September Progress



Hmm. It felt like a lot more progress than it looks in the picture!

Viv's September Sea Stars progress

Ink Circles September progressHere's a picture of my September progress - only just in time!  The picture is 'clickable' for a better view!

I finished off the central part of the octopus, did a small amount on the large green motif, and stitched the new one, in the bottom left hand corner.

I missed out August :(  We were busy with the school holidays, and I didn't get much stitching in.

Bramble & The Rose (September update)

I had a few weeks away in September and my B & R came along with me and thanks to a few rainy days when we decided to "chill out" I have made good progress this month. As well as finishing my second page I have also finished the third page and started the fourth but unfortunately due to an error along the way which I am yet to find I think I am going to have to do a lot of frogging. I originally started the third page (sheet 2) working down from the top but realised I had somehow gone wrong! I could not face frogging it at that time so decided to start the fourth page from the bottom up! I think I will carry on a little with page four until I discover my error then frog what I have to rather than start again but if this becomes too messy I will just have to frog the lot. But despite that a good month :)

Another Tanglewood Progress

I was very lazy this month. Didn't get very much done. But I tried some leaves and am not so sure whether this colour works. Any suggestions?



Tanglewood - September Progress

Arghhhhh!!!  I ran out of thread with one branch and a little more to go!  I had so hoped to have this colour finished for this update and as I have to order the thread it is going to be a while.  Ah well I should have paid more attention when I was ordering the first time.  So here it is Aug and Sept.  Hope you all are enjoying these last days of summer.

Tanglewood - August progress

Just a quick update, I started outlining one set of branches, it certainly provides some definition.  I am liking the colours a lot.  Hope you all had a good summer.
