I crammed as many circles as I could into this project! The class begins with the students painting their canvases. Then we start making circles!

Jessicas, Rhodes stitches, spider webs, more Jessicas, detached buttonhole, and even more layered Jessicas. Along the way we stitch some satin stitch patterns – Milanese, Byzantine, and Scotch, Parisian, and brick. The final touches are 4 trip herringbone bands with an open background of couched lines over the painted canvas.
