Please excuse the missing 1 cm. I have had this design for ages and I really wanted to try using a thick thread in the bobbin and stitching from the back. First I stitched the pattern on the front with a fine thread, then turned it over and had the thick thread in the bobbin. This was fine until I realised that in some places I could see the original that was removed. The pieces were joined and the circles applied. I use calico already fused with wadding for the backing.

  1. I don't know where the photo went, I shall have to try again!

  2. This makes me think of hot air balloons rising into a magnificent sunset sky, the lines being the ropes.
