The final two.....

Yay! I have finished the final two circle sets on my little wool wall hanging.  I am very pleased with how this is looking.

The penultimate circle set was decorated (from outer edge) with Italian knotted border stitch in variegated fine silk thread; up and down buttonhole stitch in variegated perle cotton (8) and finished with beaded drizzle stitches in the centre.  Just loved working the drizzle stitches and they add such a lot of texture to the project.

The final set was embellished (from outer edge) with glove stitch in coton a broder; buttonholed cabled chain stitch (the cable chain worked in coton a broder and the buttonholing in variegated fine silk thread); Italian knotted border stitch in variegated fine silk thread and finally bullion knots in the centre worked in coton a broder.

I am very excited to have this project nearly finished and I couldn't wait to start on the background quilting. 

It is not perfect but it adds so much texture.  Perhaps I will get it finished at the weekend!


  1. Soo beautiful! Love all your sweet additions to the circles!
