Hello everyone! I hope you’ve all been busy crafting? Avis, Izz and myself are doing well with our SAL, although I’m proving to be a bit of a rebel for this stage ^^ It was my turn to decide what bit to stitch on “Cirque des Cercles” by Ink Circles, so I got out my fluorescent orange pen and sent the following to Avis – who approved.
Idea being to stitch FOUR smaller circle outlines and fill in three of the ellipses.
I, however, got a little carried away (to the left) and ended up stitching the wrong outlines . . . so Avis kindly agreed to go ahead and stitch SIX outlines instead of four. But my confusion didn’t stop there.
You’ll notice I got my ellipse centres all mixed up lol. And instead of stitching the three in the centre, I stitched the three to the LEFT (with the two on far left being in the wrong place ^^). Oh well, we did the same amount of stitching, so are still neck and neck. I don’t think it really matters that I’ve inverted ellipse centres . . . and it certainly won’t notice once the piece grows some more.
You can check out Avis progress, which is looking gorgeous, over on her blog Sewing Beside the Sea . . . and Izz is going great guns with her project: “The Lord’s Prayer” over on Isabel’s Needleworks.
Stay tuned for stage 5 ^^
