SAL update



I made some progress on Salem Sisters this past week, you can see a picture of it here . I am going to try to do better this week. Hopefully my SAL partners are faring better than me. Lizzy, Ranae how are you both doing? I have been a lazy blogger this week too. Probably a result of the horrible tooth ache I had all last week. I see the oral surgeon tomorrow, so he can drain me dry of my money-LOL. Last night I went to a stitch in at my LNS, a most lovely way to while away the hours. Next month is Needle Delights stitching fair retreat. I am going again and I can't wait. I am starting to get my projects ready-because let me tell you-one can never take too many projects. Can you believe it's been almost a year since I went to the last one?

Anyway, here is the fabric and waterlilies, that I picked out for Cirque Des Circles. The linen is called fresco and I am going to use Java which is a rich chocolate color with hints of pink and purple. Very pretty I think. Don't know when I will start, but it's all ready. Thanks so much for the compliments on my exchange to Carol. I really enjoyed stitching that piece and I hope that I can do as well the next time! I hope you all have a great week.

Salem Sisters coming along fine. Interesting colours you've picked for CdC! Can't wait for you to start :)

I had a bunch of dental work done this spring, so I feel your pain, both in the mouth and the pocketbook! :D

I'm so eager to see CdC worked up with your fabric choices, Sharon. It seems like it'll be very deep and rich - gorgeous!

I love Salem Sisters and have already put it on my "To Buy" list! Hopefully my LNS will have it when I go on Thursday.
Can't wait to see your CdC come to life, I love to see the different colors people use on it.

Salem Sisters is looking fabulous! Now there's a perfect Halloween piece!
Sorry to hear of your tooth-ache. That's the worst kind of pain, and I will keep my fingers crossed for you this week :o)

Love your floss toss/fabric choice for Cirque Des Circles - that is going to be a stunning project!! And Salem Sisters looks so cool! :) Good luck with oral surgeon - it's no fun, but certainly loads better than going around in constant pain!

Bets said...

Love the look of the Salem Sisters! Sorry for your pain, hope you are feeling better. Not much stitching here because of too much work. Have a great time next month :)

I love this design and have it at home. The purple looks more vibrant on yours than the picture with the pattern. Maybe I need to start this one asap. :) Ann.
