For this SAL update, both Avis and I have begun a brand new project . . . an Ink Circles design by Tracey Horner: Cirque des Triangles (hereafter to be called CdesT). This will be the second “Cirque” we tackle together since we stitched Cirque des Cercles in 2014 and had lots of fun with that. Nice thing about Ink Circles designs, is that you can really get creative with fabric and thread.
I’m stitching on a Forest Green 25 count Lugana evenweave, using 2 strands of Threadworx “Wild¨Poppies” (1072). Threadworx skeins come in 25m lengths, which explains why there are only 4 skeins in the photo. Should be more than enough.
Anyway, enough chat . . . here’s my progress for stage 1.
We’ve started top left (after some careful measuring of fabric) and it’s plain sailing so far.
Don’t forget to pop over and see what other ladies in the SAL are working on.
Avis, is working on the same CdesT design, but in totally different colours. Other ladies are all working on a wonderful variety of projects: Gun, Carole, LucyAnn, Kate, Jess, Sue, Constanze, Debbierose, Christina, SusanP, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Helen, Steph, Wendy, Linda and Catherine.
And please do come back to check out progress on 12th March.
