This one began life as ‘the satin stitch circle’:
… but the floats were too long and would soon have been pulled out of shape. The circle measures about 1″ in diameter, worked in space-dyed cotton perle no. 8. So I added some horizontal bands and caught them down with a little stitch at the intersections:
The background is hand-dyed 32-count aida. I backstitched around the edge of the circle and gave it a little echo outline in whipped running stitch.
Peace is elusive, and sometimes you just have to pin it down.
