Making Progress on Cirque des Cercles

This past weekend, I worked on CDC, making a pretty good dent into page two (the top middle). I was happy I finished some of the big circular motifs in the center while working on page one, because it's making me feel like there's already a lot done on each page. I'd like to finish the top all the way across, and then maybe start something new. I'm trying to decide between Mirabilia's Adia, and L&L's In the Arm of an Angel. Decisions, decisions!

Over the weekend I also worked on some genealogy research - yes, all my hobbies are ones septuagenarians usually do. Anyway, I found out some cool things about one branch of my family. We knew that one of my ancestors, Edward Fuller, came here with his family on the Mayflower, but I found some additional information about him. He was believed to be one of the framers of the Mayflower Compact, based on his legal training as a barrister. I just thought that was about the coolest thing!

Hello! I just found your blog recently and am loving it! It is so inspiring and your work is just gorgeous!

Last weekend I found myself, by chance, in a cross stitch shop. I rekindled my dormant love affair with cross stitching!!!! I am so happy!

Where do you get most of your patterns? I live in the Chicago area also and would love to know about some places I may not have been to.

Thanks for the inspiration and beauty!

Your Cirque is gorgeous. I really need to get back to mine - I haven't touched it since the day the evil frogs attacked. ;)
