Cirque update

As I told a friend on facebook that she hasn't updated her blog in a while, she reminded me I haven't done mine in a week either!

Last night I got some studying done, and didn't have much time to update the blog.  Tonight I took a few hours off as I had one of those evenings and wouldn't have been productive anyway.  I started to cut the grass (too hot to finish) and played around with my new tripod (bought with birthday money).

Now for the picture part of this post.  Here is a pic of the before and after on cirque de cercles.  It has been my main WIP and I can feel the end in site!  I am still enjoying this stitch a lot.

Last weekend I was invited to Kathy's place for a stitchy weekend.  I arrived Saturday morning and followed by Beatrice.  Dani and Christin had arrived Friday night.  No pics were taken, but as you can see from pics above, I did get lots of stitching in.  Almost all of the update was done on the weekend :)

This weekend is a long weekend in Canada, with Friday being Canada Day.  Here in lovely Cobourg, we have a wonderful waterfront festival each year.  Lots of vendors and arts and crafts tents to visit.  I plan on going down to the tents Friday morning and most likely Saturday sometime as well.  If you are planning a trip down and want a walking buddy, let me know.  I can guide you in a good place to park if you do not want to take the shuttle.

Well I should try and get a bit more grass cut before it gets too dark out.
Hope you all have a great stitchy week!
