Cirque- small update

Life got in the way of much stitching this week.  Still I managed to stitch 2 days on Cirque. It’s getting there, but i’ve really lost interest in it. Still I want to finish it.


This one is so hard to get a decent photo of.

This is where it is now….

Japanese Garden- Let the beading begin

The first two weeks of July I worked on beading Japanese Garden. That was for my open week, then my normal JG week. 

Let me just say, I love beading! What fun. WOW do the beads really make it just POP.  

I am grateful to the chatelaine Facebook groups who helped me get my supplies. I made a tacky bob, which works great. I also got a tip to this bead nabber. Can I just say, best invention ever? I was quite worried about picking the beads up, as my hands shake all the time. I had images of beads everywhere but my handy bead nabber really worked great.  I only lost a few beads and I was able to find them before they got away. 

I have hopes to get this done my my birthday- October 14. I think it’s a very realistic goal. I can’t believe after over 5 years, I’m nearly there.
