Last month I completely forgot to post a pic of my collecting jar as part of the Totally Useless SAL, this month I am a little bit late but I least I rememberd eventually!
Lots and lots of red in there again, thanks to a slight miscalculation on Grand Marquoir SAL on Sunday 😦
I managed to get another two squares done, so three more left to stitch on this part of the SAL but the next part is almost here, hopefully I will be able to squeeze in enough stitching time before the next part to get me up to date.
Sorry for the dark pictures today, I took this VERY early this morning thanks to a hungry Ginger thinking that he had a chance of being fed at 5.30am this morning LOL . He started off purring quietly, then got a bit louder, then decided to move on to my pillow and purr in my ear and when I kept ignoring him he decided to nibble my nose until I actually got up. Needless to say he was back in bed, fast asleep with a full stomach by 5.45am – it’s a cat’s life! I have a feeling I may fall asleep at my desk later on as it is so warm here at the moment it’s making us all sleepy.
I have made a little progress on Cirque des Triangle, maybe not as much as I had hoped to achieve but with a bit of luck (and a couple of late nights) a happy dance is still achievable by the end of the week.
Again, a really terrible picture which looks like it was taken during a total eclipse LOL, I’m not sure what was going with my flash this morning.
I’m itching to finish Cirque because Claire and I are starting another SAL when Cirque is done. It was a choice between The Bramble and The Rose or South Seas Lace, both from the Gift of Stitching magazine. South Seas Lace was the winner, mainly as it’s smaller and we can both stitch it using supplies from our stash whereas Bramble takes 12 skeins of thread so will take a little longer to kit up. Everyone is welcome to join in with our SAL – the more the merrier.
