Click here for details. This one is a lot of fun to stitch -- particularly following Bubble Flower! Not so much confetti to wade through.
I've been feeling a horrible itch to start some new projects. I'm restraining myself since the ones I really feel pulling at me aren't fully kitted (why do my whims always seem to work that way??) and right now all my extra cash is going towards Christmas gifts for the kids. After Christmas though I think I'll spend a child support check on stash. Shhhh! Don't tell my ex, seeing how he forbid me to spend any of his money on cross stitch. Hahahahahahahahah HAH!
This is what started the itch:
Ink Circle's Cirque des Cercles stitched on black with DMC varigated gold #111 by Marc Davis. I had absolutely no interest in stitching this design until I saw this. Isn't it gorgeous? I realized it is perfect for the Waterlilies Fraises du Bois I've been wanting to use for something, but couldn't find anything that "fit". I'll stitch it on either teal Dublin linen or Picture this Plus Crystal Shadow Cashel. I can't wait to get started -- and since I have a skein of the thread and the fabric I might just break down and order the pattern now.
