jude – this one's for you!
I am very pleased with myself over this one. I dreamed it up Friday night, and it looks exactly the way I thought of it.
It is tricky to see in the picture, but it really is nothing but circles held in a grid of stitching. I used two layers of water soluble stabilizer, one that has sticky material to hold things in place and a plain layer over the top to keep the presser foot of the machine from sticking to it. With extra thread in the top and shiny in the bottom, it looks lovely either way up.
I offer also this vision of it against the window…
