I'll be saying good-bye to Cirque des Cercles for a while. I really completed a lot more than I first thought I would when I picked this up a week or so ago. I checked everywhere last night at home for a second spool of Glacial silk but I don't have one. I have no idea what I was think when I only ordered one. So now I'll be working on a second choice of silk for the three big center circles. I'm working on a custom spool order on Vikki's site and hopefully can get it ordered soon.

a new start
I started my Isa V Grand Marquior today on the train. I'm using 35 count WDW in Havana with Vikki Clayton silk in Imperialosity. I'm happy with my final choice. I should hope so considering this is my fourth start. I kept stitching the entire first block and hating it when it was complete. But I'm happy now and that's all that counts. :-) Of course my photo is far away from the true colors. I'll try to get one outside over the coming weekend. The Havana is not nearly so orange and the green is much darker in real life.
