I’m forever stitching triangles….

Sorry it’s been a while again, but I’ve been having all sorts of problems with the internet after our wifi was hacked about a month ago.  On the positive side, there’s been plenty of stitching going on.  On the negative, I’ve had a few health problems, a death in the family, and lots of other stresses that I won’t bore you all with.

I had been about the post an update on Cirque des Triangles before losing the internet, and this is as far as I had gotten



After a few weeks off-line, I am getting really close to finishing – and as I’ve just taken it off the frame to move, I thought I’d put up the latest progress



Not bad eh 😉

I also managed to make up a little pair of mittens for my new(ish) niece who has been suffering with cold hands – haven’t knitted for years, but managed to get these made up in a day, so quite pleased with myself



Anyway, I wanted to get this up just in case the internet goes again – nothing would surprise me here in Algeria LOL.  Keep warm, dry and well everyone.

Come to the dance

After posting my latest finish yesterday I realised that I hadn’t put up a finished picture of Cotillion by Papillon Creations!  I finished this quite a while ago while I was still in England, but am still waiting to get a frame for it.  Details of the Vicki Clayton silk threads I used are up on her website gallery –

or on the Papillon Creations site gallery

Happy dancing

It’s been a while, but I have been busy stitching away on my daughter’s prayer rug, and the last stitch finally went in this afternoon.




I still need to get hold of some material to back it and maybe some tassels if I can get them, but really pleased with how it turned out and my daughter couldn’t wait to use it 🙂




I think I will work on cirque des triangles for a little while as it’s only one colour and an easy stitch, though my son has already started pestering me to start on his one!!!  There is also a huge charity project that needs starting – choices, choices…..
