I hope you are having a good week. I am sure you are all here to see my progress on my daily circles.
I had the idea to use this circle almost as soon as I decided to take on the Quilty 365 circle project. I have several embroidery patterns that are circles, and I thought it would be nice to combine these into one project.
This one was started a while ago, maybe a year or so, but I did finish it this week. It is slightly bigger than the other squares I have, so I will have to make some adjustments on the other blocks to make this one fit.The fabric is not stained - that is part of the design.
This is a free Red Brolly design - all mistakes are my own. I am calling this Saturday's circle. I worked on it on Saturday, but did not get it finished until Wednesday.
This is Sunday's circle since I flew to San Antonio for my work.
We went to an Indian restaurant on Tuesday. This is therefore Tuesday's circle. My food came in a bowl where one side of the bowl was higher than the other side. The X in the center is for the biryani I had, and also for multiplication for the math work I was doing. I cut this square a little bigger than usual to take into account any shrinkage during the embroidery process.
I took floss and fabric on my trip so I could make a variety of designs, but I didn't have much time or energy to make a circle every day. It looks like my stitches are too tight in this photo, but it pressed out just fine.
This is Saturday's circle. A snowball block is one I have been thinking of using for a while since it is fairly easy. I need to reattach the triangles closer to the edge, but I will fix it later. It hasn't snowed, but I found myself wearing purple - my shirt, my jacket, and my luggage were all purple. And the fabric is somewhat chaotic, just like our way back home.
For background information, I am participating in the Quilty 365 Circles. See the link on the sidebar. I started this project on November 16, 2015. My plan is to think of a circle idea each day. I can make that circle that day or later (usually the following day). If I miss a circle, that is completely all right. I can either make more than one circle on days I have more than one idea, or I can just skip a day. I am not keeping track of the number of circles I make as compared to the number of days that have elapsed. It helps that I started on a random calendar day.
As you can see on this post, I've missed quite a number of days. I did get some other ideas to use during the week, so maybe later this week, I will be able to make up at least some of the days.
