#20 – the seeded circle

1.5″ diameter, on plain mediumweight linen, with space-dyed cotton perle no. 8.

Very small, and very simple.

Still on the subject of seeds – though of a different kind – a few weeks ago, I noticed some little seedlings popping up all over the garden. At first I thought they might be sunflowers, from dropped bird seed, so I left them to grow, looking forward to seeing what they grew into. They turned out to be broccoli.

    A lovely circle. Was the broccoli a gift from the birds or had you grown some before?

    I like this one! I love doing seed stitch, very meditative. Broccoli is good for you but certainly not as exciting as a sunflower!

    This circle is lovely, the colour of the thread is also very pleasing.
    Sometimes simple stitches give the most attractive pieces.
