I'm so looking forward to the weekend. I have some birthday cash to spend and I plan on buying some new clothes. :-) And maybe the pugs will get new collars too!
Here is my progress on Heart and Hand - I accomplished a lot yesterday on the train home as well as later in the evening while I watched tv. I made a start on Block seven of the Village also. For the weekend I think I'd like to make some progress on part 2 of Marquoir ABC - I estimate I'm about a third done with this section. Before I know it, part 3 will be available and my goal is to have the previous release finished before the new one comes out. But I'm sure I'll have to work a bit on Heart and Hand also. I'm almost half way done and the entire bottom half of the piece is all alphabet and a saying. It will go really quick. I think I'd like to make this up into a pillow. Goodness knows I have enough of a fabric stash for 100's of pillows! :-)
I'm fairly certain that while I really like this color, it's not what I'm looking for my bigger Cirque des Cercles. I'll keep searching. Maybe a Caron Waterlilies silk? I do plan on using the Silkweavers 32 count Golden Harvest as the linen. Maybe if I look at a brown and blue variegated thread? I'm not opposed to anything at this point. I'm starting to wonder what the Blackbird Design Loose Feathers #22 will look like. A holiday piece maybe? I'd like that as currently I don't have any Christmas stuff except for my ornaments.
