Week 3 with CdC

Cirque de Cercles ~ The Snowbird's SAL ~ Week 3 Progress
(picture is clickable)

I think that I did pretty much progress it's always hard to say, but you can follow what I've done each week in my Cirque album located in my side bar if your interested. I think that a couple of things slow me down: stitching 1:1 on black evenweave is the main thing and I'm constantly looking at colors as I go along. See I colored my pattern but I just did general "hues" I'm actally choosing the colors as I stitch. And I find that I'm chaning some things as I go. Hope it turns out ok!

But here I go patting my own back again. I had a visual picture in my mind of what I wanted...and this is EXACTLY it! I really am proud of my prgress so far. It's bright jewel tones...just make me smile!

Thanks for checking in on my progress! Thanks too for all my visitors new and seasoned alike :)

Until next week, I hope you stitch with dancing fingers!

  6. I love your color choices but aaaak about stitching on black, although I think the color results will be worth it in the end. Do you stitch over a white towel? I've heard that hint for working on dark cloth--I'm going to try it for a small project I have on a navy blue linen.

  9. I am falling so in love with your CdC! Pat yourself on the back all you want - we sure don't mind! You are so talented! I would love to do this piece too... yet fear stitching on black in this house with six long haired cats. I think I would spend all my time letting my OCD obsess over the cat hairs on the fabric and not get a whole lot of stitching done! I just LOVE the red you have added in now!

  10. Hmm, I just tried to post a comment and I got an error. :-(

    Anyhoo, I said that this was looking gorgeous and that I love the bright colors against the black. It looks like a tapestry...which IIRC, you said you were trying to go for that look.
