More Circles

As a part of my 365 project, I have been making circle blocks.  So far, I have shown you 133 blocks. Let's continue with block 134.

 Block 134



I got a routine blood test, and this is the neon green tape she put on my arm.  I wanted to use something that wasn't fabric, and this seems appropriate. It is stretchy and I thought I cut it rounder than I did.  We've done small and we've done off center, now we have small AND off-center. 

 Block 135



A simple circle to make use of fabric and represent sewing and math.

 Block 136




This piece is made up of leftover scraps from making other circles, some of which had fusible on it. Trying to do something different than the simple circle.

 Block 137-140




One way to make a simple circle not so simple is to put it on a pieced background.  This is four backgrounds so it represents four circles.

 Block 141




I was really bored with my last batch of circles, and was trying to figure out a different way to make a circle.  I rolled one up but it was hard to tell which was the front or the back, so I decided to use two layers of circles, and offset the inside circle a bit so you could see that it was a rolled circle.

Slow Stitching Sunday It isn't hand stitching, but it is definitely slow! It takes at least a year to make all the circles!

I love your 'circles' - they are absolutely fascinating. So much fun stretching the edges of what a circle might be!

It's always a treat to see where your adventures in circle-making have taken you the previous month. I'm a blood donor, too but roll my stretchy tape like a tree trunk. Not sure what I will ever do with it. Do you suppose people will come see the 'largest roll or stretch tape' like they do balls of string or rubber bands? Probably not. Thanks for linking with AHIQ.
