New Start

I couldnt wait.  The threads were finally in and even though I need to finish something (anything) I just couldnt wait!

CDD 6-13-09

Say hello to my version of Cirque des Carreaux!

Fabric is 30ct Garnet by Weeks and thread is Elderberry by Caron.  I thought hard about doing this project in silks but just couldnt find a combo that was close enough to Elderberry for my liking.

Time will tell how long this takes me to do.  Its not easy to see, actually need a black cloth underneath to see the holes better and the fabric pills and leaves droppings like you wouldnt believe (dont think I’ll go back to Weeks) but the color is just wonderful.


  1. Oooo, yummy new start! The fabric is awesome but that pilling would drive me insane!

  2. I haven't had any problems with my Weeks fabrics. Bad batch?

  3. That's a avery vibrant colour. I don't think I'll ever be brave enough to work with a fabric that bright. Love the blue against te pink.

  4. Can't wait to see more of this - looks great!

  5. I love this design and the fabby color is gorgeous
    nice start
