Cirque des Cercles Stage 6!

Happy weekend everyone,

Stage 6 of Ink Circle’s Cirque des Cercles is now complete. Although this is a large project, it is so enjoyable because the charts a really clear and there is a lot of symmetry in the designs. Once half, or sometimes one quarter, of a motif is finished you can just continue to stitch while reflecting the designs.

Stage 6

I’m stitching on a frame so I’m showing you the part I’ve just finished. If you want to see how much of the project has been done so far, pop over to Claire’s blog as she is stitching and revealing at the same pace as me but she’s showing all of it. I love the colours Claire is using and it’s nice for me to be able to see what mine will look like when it‘s taken off the frame. Gun, who is also stitching along to finish a completely different set of floral projects, is also posting an update today. I’m loving her blues and greens and I can’t wait to see how she plans to finish them. Will they be used together or in one panel? Only Gun knows the answer to that. You can check out her progress here.

Also, I have good news!! Jule, who writes the blog From the Boudoir, has also joined the SAL and is revealing her 2nd stage today. She is completing a series of butterflies. Jule is also tackling her UFO’s on her other blog in the order of them winning her UFO lottery. Her projects are complex, demanding, clever, intriguing…..well just gob-smacking really. You can admire them here.

The next update will be posted on 8th June 2014 as long as we are all ready to publish by then.
