1 Year of Stitches 2018 no longer a UFO

Had to work on the UFO's and complete them. 1 Year of Stitches started in 2018 would be the simplest to get done so I set to work in October, adding a line every other day and I'm happy it's done.

I wanted to explore the creation of circular motifs using a single embroidery stitch or multiple stitches.

It's a sampler of sorts.
Texture and pattern that's possible with embroidery stitches.

If you would like to see how it all started click here and to see the slow progress I made before putting it aside, click here .

What I did with bullion stitch.
Do you have UFO's lurking in your cupboards and work baskets?
How do you go about completing them?

I think we all have UFOs! In my case, they wait until the reason for setting them aside no longer holds true..

It is really nice to make samplers with various stitches. Your circle design show off these stitches beautifully, both for linear and individual stitches. The French Knot and Bullion Knot parts are so rich. It is a delight to see.
