Cirque des Cercles Stage 5

Hi everyone,

I’m so pleased to show you my completed Stage 5 of Cirque des Cercles from Ink Circles. I hope you like it. It is amazing how addictive this one is to sew.

My fabric is on a frame so I will show you the part that has just been stitched, plus as much as possible of the rest, every three weeks. I’m stitching along with Claire over at Claire93 and Gun at Rutigt. Yes, we have a new recruit Smile. I’ve admired Gun’s sewing since I started reading blogs. She is a master of colour and (I think) her speciality is bags and pouches. She just can’t stop making them, every size, shape and colour! Unfortunately, Izz at Isabel’s Needleworks is no longer able to continue stitching along with us as her eyes won’t allow her to concentrate for long periods on cross stitch. We miss her Sad smile but she is going to continue stitching her sampler, just at a slower pace. Claire is stitching the same design as me and Gun is stitching a lovely selection of florals. Why not pop over to take a look at their progress which will be posted sometime today?

Our next completed stage will be revealed on 18th May as long as we are all ready to post by then.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
