No new stitching to share. I've actually had a couple of days when I haven't got any done! Yesterday was one - we went to see Cirque du Soleil perform Varekai. It was a late birthday treat for Martin and an early one for me. It was amazing! It's the second time we've seen them (we saw Saltimbanco in London a few years ago), but the first time in the tent - Le Grand Chapiteau. I really, really recommend it if you can go. I wish we'd been able to go the last couple of years when they've been here. They really are superb!


  1. You've accomplished some incredible feats in stitching this month!

  2. That was the top of my b/day list too :) ... but we couldn't afford it, I'm definitely going to see one of those shows, one day ...

    You've accomplished lots!!

  3. Wow, look at all those stitchy accomplishments! Congrats!

    I love Cirque! Living so close to D.C., they come around here every 12-18 months or so but the tickets sell out really fast!

    How much do you have done on Napoleon? I have a HUGE Golden Kite chart, but I've not gotten around to starting the beast... it's massive!

  4. You sure did have a productive month! Congratulations :-) Love the Ornament SAL, thanks again for setting it up!

  5. Great stitching month for you!

    I saw Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas a few years ago - it was awesome!

  6. Congrats on your progress this month and your two finishes! I am taking Eric to see Cirque de Soleil's Corteo for Valentine's Day. We've gone to see their shows a couple of times and they are awesome - glad you enjoyed Varekai!

  7. Glad to hear you got a chance to see Varekai - Mum and I went to see Alegria when they came 'down under' and loved it. Might have to see if I can get into Varekai closer to the dates as well, seeing as you've given it such a great revue ;) It was interesting reading your blended needle issues with your over-one too ... I'm going to have the same problem with my Macaw, and not sure how I'm going to deal with it yet - perhaps find an Anchor thread in the middle of the two shades or something. You've made great progress already :D
