This is one of my favourite circles for my wool applique sampler project! Uschi taught us how to create the little ladybug in the center using bullion stitches. I used size 8 perle cotton for my ladybug but you could use any type of thread – very fun to stitch! It is not perfect in shape, hopefully next time. The border was created using hand dyed rayon thread in a double chain stitch – I like this stitch a lot and plan to use it for a crazy quilt seam treatment soon. I am currently working on stitching the circles in place but a ways to go with this 🙂
So, what are YOU working on?
