    I was able to work on more circles over the weekend and now have 15 done-halfway! These are a few of my favorites. Have learned many new stitches in the process including the Trellis stitch which is a new favorite!

      this is gorgeous

    I’m so enjoying this project. I love having some handwork to do in the evenings and this fits the bill perfectly.

      I took this piece with me to show my 90 year old Mom this past week. She did some embroidery work before the other 7 kids came along. Obviously her time became very limited after that. My Dad was a truck driver and home only on weekends so she was on her own and no time for stitching. She loved looking at the piece I'm working on, scrutinizing every inch for nearly 15 minutes and finally announced her favorite circle thus far! Her embroidered dresser scarves are a treasure to me and I hope to have one of them someday.

      Hate to say it, but the BOM is getting most of my attention. But here is what I have done so far. Looking forward to learning new
      stitches today. Thank you for the lessons. HelenW

            I love your paisleys!

          Love working on this, but I had to take a break when my thumb got sore from making French knots!

            Looking forward to trying the fly stitch and double chain stitch. I did a circle of double chain from a book, but I like Alex's version better.
            Thanks to Carol G for the monogram idea, and for the discussion in the forum about French vs. Colonial knots. The colonial knots work better for me.
            And thanks, Alex, for the advice to just keep adding more stitching if you don't like what you have at first. I am not sure I'm done with any of these circles, but when I step back they seem to tell me what to add next!

            Hi everyone,

            My package from TQS finally arrived! It was stalled at customs at the border. I had to pay a hefty fee to get it, but the Sashiko needles and the variegated thread was really worth the wait!

            I will continue with my aquarium since I have so much time invested in it, but I'll try something later with the silks and some beautiful fabric my daughter brought me at Christmas.

            Hi everyone,

            Everything was extremely well packaged too!

            I have gotten used to my lap quilting frame for this, since the hoop rotates 360 degrees, but I will try the lap app.

            I will continue with my aquarium since I have so much time and energy invested in it, and I'll try something later with the silks and some beautiful fabric my daughter brought me at Christmas.

              I'm splitting time between this project and the 2022 BOM- nice to have the variety. Hardest part for me is deciding on what pattern to try next!! The photos on the forum are invaluable for getting ideas! Loved the sample with a loop-di-loop through straight stitch isee detail in photo one.

                I love your progress shots so inspiring

              Making progress with some new stitches including lazy daisy and basket weaving. The embroidery dictionary book that Alex recommended is great! I am stitching on a background of pieced Moda Grunge using Presencia and Eleganza size 8 thread. Happy Stitching, All!

                Karla, Your piece is turning out beautiful. You have to have done hand work, or like me just learning, to appreciate how much time
                and thought has gone into your piece. Have you decided what you are going to do with it? HelenW

                  How many stitches does it take for you to name the quilt designer??? Kind of like Name That Tune. HelenW

                    Helen—How wonderful! I half considered doing the 2022 BOM in wool (again), but this might even be better! Thanks for the inspiration, my friend!
