Some progress

First of all an update on my weekly SAL (LHN's coffee menu) with Jamie. You can see last weeks progress here and here's this weeksand whilst im posting updates here is the lastest picture of Cirque des Cercles.
I've read quite of few blogs recently with stitchers thinking about starting/purchasing this and i would say....GO FOR IT!!! Although it's a huge piece, it is really nice to stitch and the chart (all 6 pages of it) is easy to follow. I love it and i love stitching with silks! Poor Dollhouse has been relegated to my stitching box for the time being.

I have also started Lizzie Kate's "Joined in Love" all over again for a different couple. I won't bother posting a WIP picture at the moment. I work on this during the day at work as it's a quick and easy piece to do.

Right, now to answer an SBQ. I have been signed up to these since January and have never answered one. Im going to now though!

Today's SBQ was suggested Kathryn and is: How many WIPs do you have? How many UFOs do you have? When does a WIP become a UFO?
Currently i have 5 WIPS. They are: Dollhouse (Brightneedle), Cerque des Cercles (Ink Circles), Joined in Love (Lizzie Kate), Coffee Menu (LHN), PIF Gift

I have 1 UFO. This was a DMC Kit called "summer fun" that i originally bought to stitch for a friend who is having a baby. However, it is a huge piece and i changed my mind after stitching some of it and decided just to do something simple instead. It is packed away in my stitching box indefinitely.

Generally my WIPS dont become UFOs but if they do it's either because i don't like the piece anymore or i'm not enjoying stitching it.

The previous SBQ was suggested Danielle and is: Are you on "The Wagon?" If so, how long have you been on and how"serious" are you about it? If not, have you considered it?

No i'm not on the Wagon and am not considering it LOL. I don't go crazy with stash, if i see something i really like i put it on my wish list. Sometimes i see a piece that i just have to have right away (like Cerque des Cercles) and i just get it. This doesn't happen too often though as im quite fussy!!

I should only have 4 WIPs, Coffee Menu, The Night, CDC, and (yet to be determined). I probably won't start Fern or Ivy until I'm done Coffee Menu.

Beautiful Progress On Coffee Menu and Cirque des Cercles. (I actually had to copy and paste that because for the life of me cannot spell it! lol!) i suppose if I ever buy it and stitch it myself i may then learn how to spell it, but for now, I will stick to Bouquet for Cheryl, because I can spell that! LOL
