Daily Stitching and Monthly Challenge

 I am not trying to reinvent the wheel here or learn a plethora of new stitches. I have learned some new ones and will continue to do so, but some do not adapt to a three inch circle. I do, however, want to make a pleasing design in each circle. So, I discovered snowflakes, an unending supply of composition. It's seems funny to think about snowflakes when all the world outside my window is that marvelous Spring lime green of new growth. It astounds me every year.

  Now to my fabric book and my page for April. My theme here is circles. I used yo-yos, sections of a vintage crocheted doily that I hand-dyed, a section of commercial lace trim, and buttons. That navy blue circle is cotton velveteen. a little hard to sew through all those layers. I edged the page with lace as I have with all the pages. Now I have to come up with a plan for the facing page on the right.

I am linking up with Off the Wall Friday.

Oh! Yes to the snowflakes! Did you know that the circle is the happiest shape?

Circles, snowflakes, perhaps kaleidoscopes next... So many possibilities. Watching you explore them all is a treat.
