Next in the Circle Series

 As usual, my camera did a crappy job of capturing the colors.

  1. Love this! I haven't done much stitching with wool. How do you feel about it? This is making me want to take the dive.

  2. Thanks! Although this is actually cotton floss. You should try stitching with wool, though. I like it quite a bit -- fuzzy and matte, and very forgiving. It makes shading easier, too.
