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!
