Franken-Circle-Love

Worked on my FrankenStitch project last night....
 I am in love with this circular 'mole hill' stitch, named by me, as opposed to the 'boob' stitch, which I am sure we can all agree is overused!  'Boob', that is.
 That 3-stitch group above....wasn't quite sure how I wanted to tack down the silk 'tube'....as you can see, I ran with it...'running stitch'....get it? ....
 and, above, this is for those who like to see the back side....
 and this corner...well...the silk was triangular so I gathered and anchored it into a puffy spade shape.
 Another, closer look at the groups of 3.
Love this mole stitch. Love it! The blanket/buttonhole stitch around it is just for affect, not sure which effect yet.

  1. This is beautiful...I love how that centre (mole stitched) is raised, looks like the centre of a sunflower.
    Very innovative. Love it!
