Valentines Part Deux

Corteo

For the second half of our Valentine’s Day celebration, I took Eric to see Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo. It was fabulous. If you have never had the opportunity to go see them perform, try to do so. Every show I have been to (this was my fourth) has been amazing. In fact, I think I might even say this show was my favorite. I have seen Dralion, Alegria, Varekai and now Corteo. It was a wonderful afternoon. And Eric bought me a program as a souvenir.

Last night I stitched on Barnabee’s Quest for our SAL. I just love this piece.

I have the border of Part 1 all done (except the beads), the Summer Sunrise band, Bee Skep Lane and the Field of Lavender. I recently stitched the lavender fields on one of my Just Nan RR pieces. Such dainty little flowers. I am really enjoying stitching on this and taking my time with it. Tomorrow I am back to the RR, and Barnabee will wait until Friday again.

That’s about all the news that’s fit to print, so I’ll be off now. I definitely needed a wonderful afternoon like we enjoyed today. I feel much more relaxed!

Walk to Rivendell: no walking yesterday because my knees were bothering me….just weights.

I am grateful for Paris and the inspiration it provides.

  1. So glad you enjoyed it 🙂 Aren’t they wonderful? We were watching our very old Saltimbanco video last night and it was just great. I’d love to see all the shows 🙂

    Nice progress! I love those colours. I’m enjoying seeing how it’s coming along.

    The Cirque sounds like fun. Haven’t seen it myself though.

  5. Love how Barnabee is progressing. It’s so lovely to see around the blogs. We can see each of the bands in beautiful detail.

  7. Can I just tell you how jealous I am of you going to see Cirque?? I would *love* to be able to take my daughter! We like to watch the video performances every now & then, but I’m sure it’s so much better in person 🙂 What a wonderful finish to V-day!

    Forgot to say……….

    Many thanks for the link to silverneedle. I emailed them about the Queen of the Needle needlecase but alas, they’ve not got any left. Not surprised really, it must have been snapped up within seconds of becoming available, lol. Still, it never hurts to ask.

    I live in hope though, and shall keep my eye’s peeled on ebay in case anyone is mad enough to sell their kit or chart, hahah.

    Thanks for the site info 🙂
