#52weeksofstitchingthecircle - circle no. 2
I've not quite finished this week's circle (I'm doing a piece of work for someone and my deadline has just been shortened) as I need to add another leaf and edge the circle.
I delved into my new book, The Stitches of Creative Embroidery by Jacqueline Enthoven, for this week's circle. I use buttonhole stitch all the time, but only as an edging stitch, not as an outline to create a design. These flowers use buttonhole stitch 'inside out' as well as the usual way round.
Again, like last week's circle, the stitches and pattern I'm using are straightforward, but I hope to try sonething a little more challenging for next week's circle.
I'll be posting about my progress on this project every week in my weekend post (as I post every other day, it'll alternate between Saturday and Sunday). The piece of linen I'm using at the moment has four circles on it. Once I've completed all four, I'll damp-stretch them all together, before cutting out the individual circles that I'll then add to a journal that I'm going to keep them all in.
I'll be back on Monday. Have a lovely weekend.
