The votes are in!


And folks want red circles! (except for those who wanted something else LOL).

I give you:


Cirque des Cercles
32 ct Lemon Whip Lugana, DMC 115

I thought I'd been posting more pictures of CdC, but apparently not (I'll do better). This is it as of 10 minutes ago. I worked on the upper right motif today. Getting a mini HD with every motif increases the enjoyment factor.

I try not have a very dark stitch right next to a very light stitch, which is probably unnecessary but makes me happy. Right now that dark patch in the middle of the light red in upper rightmost motif in the house that Jack built is bothering a tiny bit me. The upper left of the motif is dark, and the lower right is light except for that patch. However in the big scheme it's not important, and shall not be tampered with.

WOW! That's really beautiful!

Hey...I got a postcard from you today. That's the best beaver/wolf I've ever seen. ;-) Seriously, I appreciate you sending it.

I'd love to return the favor but the post office marked all over your return address. If you email me you addy I'll mail you one from Oklahoma.

It looks brilliant just as it is. The different colours in the stitches give it it's own unique look.

Wow! That looks fabulous and I must say you are one brave soul to take on something that big and complicated. Kudos to you!

I'm so glad to see this one again!
I wouldn't worry too much about the
dark patches. When it's completed it will all come together. I tried working colours when I stitched mine and finally gave up. It was too much trouble.

It's beautiful! You are doing a great job. And I agree...dont worry about the dark and light patches unless you are having fun with it. If it makes you happy...keep doing it. LOL And I celebrated HD's everytime I finished a circle on mine, too. Made stitching it so much more fun.

That's the joy of using dyed threads though! They're like a box of chocolates....

I think it's looking amazing :o)
