changing things around

Here is my progress on Cirque des Cercles. I'm happy with how the silk I picked out is working with Phantom. Of course it's hard to tell because I still haven't learned the art of taking photos of my work so the colors show up true. ;-) Maybe one of these days I'll figure it out. The plan was to work on this until this morning and I'm following the plan so I put Randenlap Celtic in my bag for the commute to and from work this week. The difference in the two shades is very small and as I feared it is a different weight silk. I tried using one strand and then two strands and I like the way that two strands look the best. I'll take a progress photo tomorrow because I had to pull half of what I put in so there is not much done.

It's been a good year for my veggie garden. This is just one day's harvest. I've been picking like this a couple times a week now for several weeks. :-) Nummy!
