Happy Dance!


In my last post you saw I was THIS close to finishing Cirque Des Coeurs!


 Cirque Des Cirque
by Ink Circles
Stitched on 32ct Queen Ann's Lace Joblean
Stitched with DMC 115

Well I finished it in the wee hours last night, I stayed up until 1:30am stitching despite the fact that I had to go to work in the morning.  I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep with just one and a half hearts to go.  So I stuck it out and Happy Danced at 1:30am all by myself.  I didn't even put a picture up on Instagram (@tkd_chick ... follow me!) or Facebook, just went to bed.  Of course that's one of the first things I did this morning before I went to work, put some so-so pictures up on Social Media, lighting isn't the best at 6am.


I started this piece on July 23rd and finished it on September 5th, it took me just over six weeks to stitch up.  I loved every stitch of it.

Cirque and Coeurs

For my next trip, in February of 2015 I plan on starting Cirque Des Carreaux and I've already got my threads picked.  I'm just waiting for them to arrive so that I can see if it'll work on the same fabric as both Cirque Des Circles and Coeurs or if I need find something different.


I haven't really figured out what my stitching plans are next.  I've got a few ideas, I've got a travelling pattern to stitch up from one of the groups I belong to on Facebook.  I am also toying with the idea of maybe doing a few Halloween Smalls I've also got a few Christmas ornaments I've got my eye on.  Of course I should also get back to The Accolade, which got put aside in March for Zachary's Birth Announcement.


So I've got ideas.

I know that circle is circle and coeur is heart. What is carreaux? Hearts is beautiful.
