A finish

My stitching has been sporadic at best this past month. First there was the holiday in Florida and then the preparations for and actual Open House last weekend.
However this morning I managed to put the last few stitches in my 25 ct Cirque des Cercles
I just had to finish something! and this was it. Here are a few pictures of the stitching room set up for the Open House. The weekend was a great success and everyone who attended seemed pleased with the Nashville selections.
Thank You all for coming!


I am taking it easy at home today. All the snow that went away with the gorgeous spring like day we had on Monday, has returned today. Dan was out with the snow blower before he went to work (here in town vs in Toronto, thank goodness) and I have been out clearing snow as well since then...there seems to be no end in sight! Apparently there is yet another blast of winter weather coming on Friday/Saturday! Oh well it is good stitching weather!

OMG! What a great finish! CdC looks fabulous.
I had a wonderful time both Saturday and Sunday and as we talked on the weekend once the weather is nicer and we can all sit and stitch on the deck at my house I'm gonna have everyone over...maybe a date in May, after the theatre re-opens and I can actually breathe again!

I love your Circles! I've seen many in-progress versions of it so far (all very lovely, I might add) but this is the first one that made me think of really doing this piece sometime. I think it's the blue...one of my favorite colors! Which thread(s) did you use???

Congrats on your CdC finish! It looks fantastic. I think you're the first to finish of the group.
I felt so bad that I couldn't make the open house. It was just bad timing. The shop looks great and from the sounds of it the weekend was a success.

I'm soooooo behind with my blog reading - and refused to mark my favourite posts as read until I had time to comment ... well, 3 whole months later, I'm finally getting around to commenting!!

Just wanted to say how much I ADORE your CdC finish - it looks absolutely exquisite. What thread did you use, as it's just beautiful! I'm quite tempted to pilfer your piccie and have it as my screensaver for a while, I love it so much! :D

Rightio, back to reading again (I'm trying to catch up on my reading backlog so I can find time to start commenting regularly again)
