Cirque is aired again!

I joined The Snowbirds SAL to get me stitching on Cirque des Cercles again and it worked! I will be working on this one night a week. If it hadn't been for the SAL i dont know when this would've come out the wip box again. It is such an enjoyable stitch, i didnt want to put it away for another week!Stash alert!! Woo hoo! Ive been admiring this JBW designs French Country Stocking piece on Wendy's blog and after her last update picture, i decided to buy it. I love it. I don't know if it will be stitched in time for this Christmas though. I am going to stitch it in red, probably DMC115. I also got some dark blue linen and some quilting stash too...rulers etc. I had a hard week at work and worked lots of hours so was able to take today off with all the hours i was due back. It was great. I needed it. Work is really stressful at the moment. My boss is really useless and things are coming to head with the board of directors finally stepping in. Unfortunately it's going to be a really awkward time for me having to tell the board what's been going on. I have a feeling the worst is yet to come. However, im generally quite good at leaving work at work so i intend to have a nice relaxing weekend. Hope you all do too!

*edit" how could i forget to mention this:

Why oh why are bosses such jerks? If I'm ever lucky enough to advance, I won't be a bad person to work under! Good luck at work! Stash is always good! and, no, Edgar still hasn't received the next round from Lizzy. Makes me worry!

The CDC is looking good. What threads are you using for this one? I agree, the stocking is really good. Must resist the temptation for the moment.

Hi, Cheryl! Love the colors of your Cdc...and, boy, have you made good progress.
I'm sorry work is so stressful and looming with more issues. That's a mind tormenting thing.
Hope this weekend you can block it out and enjoy yourself!

I've had a hard time trying to get motivated on some projects, but hope to get there soon. Good idea to get you on track though. It always helps to "stitch with friends."

I really like that stocking and I think doing it in reds will look great!

Deanne J said...

Cirque looks great, love the colours you chose.

Lynn said...

CdC is looking good! I've finally put in my first stitches and it's sooo much fun!! I'm going to look forward to this stitch each week.
I'm tempted to get that JBW design as well. I'll blame it on Wendy too if I do.
Sorry to hear work is so miserable for you right now. I can sympathize with that for sure!

Emily said...

Circles is looking wonderful, I love this pattern. Your new stash is great too, the French Country Stocking will be a fun stitch to do as well.

Sorry work is so rough lately. Hopefully it improves soon. Even if you can leave work at work, it is so draining to have to deal with issues like that all day.
