I cite that old stereotypical line with a bit of caution, because a lot of Ink Circles stitchers are guys. There's something about the bold graphic appeal that really doesn't limit their popularity to just the girls.
Cirque des Carreaux. That's French for "Circus of the Diamonds" and it's the third in the series that started out with Cercles, which looked a bit lit a big three-ring circus.
Peg's Carreaux is stitched in variegated Mermaid Blue, which was a custom color of Vikki Clayton's Hand-Dyed Silk. She stitched it on 40 count white Ricamo linen - all the better to show off that amazing blue silk. I salute you, Peg, on this fabulous finish!
A bit more background on the silks: There is a fun and slightly rabid group of silk lovers that play on Vikki's forum, feeding her their wants and wishes and enabling each other. If enough people gang up, I think Vikki could be talked into dying about any you could dream. You should (and can) see the lovely colors and combinations over at her site. Highly recommended.
