White seed beads were added to the edge of the inner purple wool circle using a beaded coral stitch and purple wool thread. The fabric circle in the middle was edged with tiny fly stitches and the centre was decorated with buttonhole filler stitch both using variegated fine silk thread.
The next set of circles was decorated a bit differently. The outer edge of the larger wool circle was embroidered with Italian knotted border stitch in variegated fine silk thread. The edge of the inner wool circle was highlighted with stem stitch in purple coton a broder and then the centre of the fabric circle was embellished with pistil stitches of varying lengths again in the variegated fine silk thread.
Finally, the last new set of circles was decorated with beaded whipped chain stitch on the outer edge of the larger wool circle. The large circle was then embellished with seed stitches in variegated perle cotton thread. The smaller wool circle was edged with Basque stitch in variegated fine silk thread. This same variegated thread was used to stitch a circle of bullion knots on the fabric circle with a small star of straight stitches in the centre. The fabric circle was also embellished around the edge with colonial knots in white coton a broder.
Looking forward now to getting the other six sets of circles embellished!
