I have finished handstitching the circles on the hand dyed wool for the kit that my daughter gave me for Christmas. I am not much of a hand appliqué person so they are not perfect. I was surprised how some of the fabrics shrink up more than others making some of the circles smaller. The embroidery stitches that I will do around them will certainly compensate for that. I have picked out some threads for the embroidery as you can see in the second photo. Maybe that's too many? Should I leave out the blues?
Did I mention that I am not much of an embroidery person either? I guess I will be learning some new skills!
