Week #2 of Cirque de Cercles

Hello Friends! A quick update on my CdC SAL project with the Snowbird's SAL!

Here's what I got finished last week:
Week #1 (11-1-07)
Stitched 1:1 on black 28 ct. evenweave
Here's Week #2:
Week #2 (11-8-07)
Not a stunning amount of progress, but I had to frog the darn green scroll part about 3 times! But I did get a fair amount done and I'm pleased with my progress....I think as soon as I get to add some more color it will be even more dynamic! Or I hope so! LOL!
I hope you all have a great weekend. It's off to work I go.....but I'm hoping for an easy road!
Until next time I hope you stitch with dancing fingers!

  18. Love the colors, yes I do.
    Very pretty!
    I will be so sad when I am done with mine :(
    no more frogging!
    for some reason I never had to frog but just a few stitches, probably why I am so far with it.
    My fingers and needle danced over the fabby, lol.
    Love the pinkeep for Nicole.

  20. Beautiful stitching as usual, Vonna! :) Looks like you've been busy the last couple weeks. I agree...love the color choices...they look great on black (and this coming for the wisest non-stitcher of all :)). Keep plugging away at this beauty...can't wait to see it finished. Have a great weekend...in spite of working :( See ya' Mon!
