Circle & Cross closeups



Hopefully these closeup pics will be of some help in determining the work. These circles are weaved by the looks, and most likely the trees too.

Dawn, this is just perfect - thank you so very much.

The circles are similar to a much smaller flower, I think called spider web flowers, but not sure. I was trying to work out how to lay the lines, and think I have realised - is there a bit of a kot on the other side of the fabric under the big circle and the big cross? Or is the fabric totally unbroken (ie no threads come through)under each???

Think I am nearly there. :)

Hi Linda . . . Glad the pics were close and clear enough for you.

I've heard of spider web flowers but can't remember where right off. Yes, there is a small knot on the other side of the fabric under both the big circle and big cross. I can get you pics of the undersides if you'd like.

Great - I think I know how to do it now, and cannot wait to experiment. Pity the cricket is rained off - I like to watch cricket and sew. :)

I did try a complex spiderweb one (pics one day soon) - I won't say it was a failure - just a different effect to what I was after. *grin*
