Some pictures at last.

Yeah, blogger is finally being cooperative. This picture is for Ranae. This is of my fractal. The centre of it is stitched in greens and yellows, it is huge and apart from where I have gone off on a tangent with it, I have almost stitched two pages of thirty.








Here are before and after pictures after its rotation.


















The next update is for CdC. I have almost finished the outside border but decided to do some filling in of the circles, the more I do of this the more I love it. I am so glad that I decided to have this as my week end stitch so that I can work on it more regularly.












Here is a closer picture of where it has been filled in. Someone on the Cirque des Cercles blog said that finishing each section was like a mini happy dance, and they were so right. I get excited finishing one section and then I just have to start the next. We all know how addictive stitching can be and how hard it is to put our needles down.

It will be my birthday soon and the other day hubby asked if I would like an LCD computer screen, of course I said yes!!! So now I am looking at every one's blog on a 19 inch LCD monitor and I am loving it.
Later today we are heading to Bendigo and tonight we, DH, Luke and I, are going to the theatre to see a production of Oaklahoma. We love the theatre and are never disappointed by the productions that Bendigo Theatre Company put on. Joel and Caitlyn are being baby-sat by a friend of the in-laws and when they are old enough we will take them also.
I hope that all of you enjoy your week end, and that you get lots of stitching done.

The fractal is amazing, not sure if I could tackle that. Kudo's to you. CdC looks great-lovely progress.

Thanks for saring such wonderful pictures - I think, my problem is that the more I see CdC the more I want to stitch it and I already have far too many WIPs not to mention all the stash I have waiting (and sometimes screaming) to be stitched.

LOL Allie

Your WIPS are gorgeous. I love the colors on both. I can't wait to see more progress.

Ranae said...

That is a cool fractual, you really have to love the design and they all look so difficult. I will stick around to watch both the WIP's, lol. CDC is looking great. Sometimes I cant put it down, I have to finish the circle and that makes me happy, lol.
Have a great time tonite.

Love how CDC is looking, mine has been a bit neglected the last week or 2. Hope you're happy with your LCD screen, I love mine, it saves so much room on my desk compared to my old monitor.

I love the fractal design. As an engineer I am most intrigued by fractals. Where did you get the design. Your progress is looking great so far, but what a lot of pages to the design!

WOW, awesome stitching pieces. I have to stop looking at the fractal though....it is tempting to think about starting one...and I think I have bitten off more than I can chew with my current WIP!
