I’m in a Facebook group on Fabric books but haven’t posted in a long time. The Circles are stitched from designs in my circle sketchbook and done with basic stitches using Perle Cotton, Embroidery Floss, and Matt Silk.
It was a while before I could figure out how to join the pages. Some of my experiments were not working. The large black beads put between the pages using waxed linen thread seem to have done the trick. The pages turn so you can see the work.
The next project is stitching on black wool. I love to stitch on wool and back it with an iron on stretch interfacing for support. I also use my scrap mail to cut shapes and arrange them until I find a design that will work for a piece. It’s freeing to use what is basically junk.
The petal shapes are stitched in Chain stitch using Perle cotton that I painted and for the smaller petals rayon thread that I painted.
