Red Circles ( September JQ)

 Hand stitching in the evenings is just about keeping me sane! This is my Journal Quilt for September. Using the same idea of positive and negative  circles  from my July  piece and the boiled wool which is a delight to stitch into( if a bit stretchy), I used thick  red crochet cotton and French knots. In some ways it was more challenging than little black stitches ( I'm not an embroiderer)  but I quite like that they're a bit lumpy and uneven.
