Cirque des Triangles – Stage 5

Hello everyone,

It’s time to share my progress on the SAL project again. This design is by Ink Circles and it’s called Cirque des Triangles. Here’s where I was up to last time.

Stage 4

I’ve now got the bottom left side done but the fabric has been rolled around the frame so you can’t see the top. Claire doesn’t use the same kind of frame as me so you’ll be able to see what the whole thing looks like in her colour choices if you hop over to her blog.

Stage 5

Next time I hope to show the bottom right corner completed. That means you won’t see the top again until it’s all finished because I’ll need to roll the fabric around the frame.

Please take a look at how everyone else is progressing with their chosen SAL project.  Just click on the names below and you’ll hop over to their blogs. We live all over the world so you may need to allow for time differences but we post local time, every third Sunday.

Claire, Gun, Carole, LucyAnn, Kate, Jess, Sue, Constanze, Debbierose, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Helen, Steph, Linda, Catherine, Wendy, Mary Margaret, Timothy

Our next updates will be posted on the  4th June 2017. See you then!

About the SAL

This SAL (Stitch Along) is slightly different to other SALs in that we don’t all stitch the same design at the same rate. We choose ONE unfinished project, or ONE new one, and show progress of its completion over a series of three weekly updates. There are no deadlines and no set amount to stitch. The result is that the space in our drawers full of WIPs (works in progress) is gradually being freed up to store lots of new crafty goodness. It’s surprising how much motivation I’ve gained from being in this SAL. If you’d like to finish a project you’ve left unfinished for a while, or start a new one with us, you can join us by leaving a request in the comments below or sending me an email. The address is on the right of this page. I’ll send you a few simple rules to agree.

    Looking beautiful! Is there any repetition in any of the triangles or is each unique? So far they all appear unique.

  14. So beautiful! I just love your colors!

  15. Again like I wrote on Claire ‘s post I wish I could see this in person!
