Cirque des Triangles – Stage 7

Hello everyone,

Here we are again with SAL updates for the second time in June. This design is by Ink Circles and it’s called Cirque des Triangles. Here’s where I was up to last time.

Stage 6

Me and Claire have been stitching along the bottom this time.

Stage 7

We are both stitching the same design but everyone else in the group is doing something different.

Claire uses a different kind of frame to me so you’ll be able to see what the whole thing looks like so far in her colour choices if you hop over to her blog.

Please take a look at how everyone else is progressing with their chosen SAL project.  There’s some amazing stitching going on and you might just be inspired by some of the handywork of the other participants. 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  16th July 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.
