Summer Holiday Stitching

Wow what a summer holiday I've had! I've flown to Charleston, S.C, turned around and drove to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia the day after I returned from my first trip. Then there was a week at home, a trip to LaRonde, and a weekend spent with good friends.
During my travels I got to visit three different LNSs! Bought a fair amount of stash too. I'll take the time to review and share pictures of each shop... And my stash too in future blog posts.
Despite travelling a couple of thousand kilometres in the last few weeks, my visits have been low key. I've got pictures to share, but I need to replace my card reader first.
As mentioned in my pre-vacation post I mentioned I was going to work on Ink Circles Cirque des Cercles. Here's my vacation progress. :



At the beginning of my holidays I had last worked on this during my Dominican trip in February.



After a week in Charleston S.C. (July 23-31)



After just over a week in Cape Breton (August 2-8)



After a week at home (August 10-18)
- thanks for reading!

Smokin' needles!!

Does it really stitch up that quick or have you been putting 12 hour days in?

It looks amazing anyway.

Wow! Dani, that is gorgeous - what colour blue are you using? I really like the colour.

Stitchingranny said...

wow, wow, wow I am totally in awe of your speed at stitching. If I could stitch that quick my ufo's would soon be done. I have seen CdC finished in many colours and they all turn out lovely, but I love the purple shade you have chosen.
