This is as far as I got on "It's good to be Queen" before I got sidetracked by Cirque des Cercles. There is something about that chart that has me fascinated. Anyway, earlier in the week I showed my beaded circle from "Cirque". Since then I have stitched two more of the circles in varigated thread, one in Emerald Waterlilies and one in Cherry Waterlilies silk. They are going to make fabulous ornaments. Pictures will follow.
Anyway yesterday I was just obsessed with finishing the second one and stitched all afternoon on it. The beauty of these ornaments is that they have cost me virtually nothing since both the fabric I used and the thread I used, in both cases, were all leftovers from various other projects.
I am also way behind in my ornament stitching for this year so this is a fast and gorgeous way to catch up quickly. I had invited the Cobourg stitchers here last evening and some of them are looking forward to an ornament finishing day so I had better have some stitched so I can demonstrate for them when we do have the ornament finishing seminar.
Queen is coming along nicely but has suffered a bit this week during my Cirque/ornament frenzy!
