February WIPocalypse

Tuesday, 7 February 2012
Wow, WIPocalypse post number two already.

I've posted my Cirque progress in a previous post but I'll repost the current WIP pic now just for continuity.  Here is where I am after it had it's month as my focus BAP:


I should have said last time I'm stitching it on 28ct black murano and the floss is 'Aurora's Flame' from The Thread Gatherers Silk 'n Colours.

It's now been put aside in honour of my February BAP which is the Shepherds Bush Be Attitudes series stitched on an afghan.  When I picked this up it looked like this:


You can see close ups of the blocks in this post.

Since then it's had a weeks worth of attention and the Be Strong block is done as is the next one, Be Sweet, and I've made a start on the fifth block, Be Nice.  Once I've done block five I'll go back and finish up Be Warm.  I'm hoping that I'll get the sixth block done as well this month so it's at least half way through when I put it down.

Here's a pic of the Be Sweet block (sorry it's a bit dark but it's a gloomy day here):


And here's how the whole thing is looking:

Cirque is beautiful! I love the color of the floss against the black background. Your afghan is looking great too. I have thought I would like to do one of those someday...

You're getting really close on Cirque! It looks great. How many hours do you have in it so far, do you know?

BTW, I tagged you for 11 Things on my blog. http://moviemuse.blogspot.com/2012/02/11-things.html
