CDC update and new BBD WIP

Hello! It's a yucky day here in Illinois, so what better time to spend on the computer, NOT. Here is my Cirque Des Cercles update.
I hope the new camera shows a better pic then the old one did. It looks like it on the up close one anyway. I am still figuring it out.
I started yet another new one. It is the freebie from BBD called Thistle Manor. I am stitching on the 28 ct Jobelan Antique Copper that I received and didn't know what I was going to stitch on it. Well, that didn't take long now, did it? lol. I am stitching with Black Berry. After the house was half done, I didnt know if I liked the colors together, but oh well...
I thought since a pic of my niece and her DD was still on my camera from my parents party, I would show them off. Abbey(7) & Amber
Amber is expecting about the same time my daughter is due,(Oct.) I better get stitching some baby stash, huh? The new baby will also join a brother Jacob (4) at home too. This will be my first grandbaby, someone had asked me that in a coment, and I just remembered. My DD is having a girl and sweet Amber, a boy. One of each and I cant wait. At least its not me, lol. I am too old anyway, lol. Its my time to enjoy and give them back, when I want, lol. I have never posted a pic of my son, so that will come soon.
I don't know what i just did, I am sure happy blogger saves automatically, wheww!!
I better go stitch awhile before dinner. I am in the mood to stitch Painted Ponies, so that one will get my attention tonite.
Thank You for all inspiring comments & e-mails. It means the world to me.
Happy Stitching!!
NO frogging!!

Hello Ranae, your Cirque piece is incredible! I love it. I like the thread you're using for this piece. I think Black Berry is nice for the BBD piece too. I hope you're having a good day - Julie
