Circles and a bit more

I tried several more circular shapes with the thorn stitch. I definitely had to use templates for two of them. And I wish I’d used a compass for dividing the circumferences more evenly. But perhaps it gives a rather organic look.

I also tried to perfect one of my ric-rac experiments.

This is an “off grid” grid where I tried lacing the thorns.

When I found my green beads I started in again on this sample from earlier in the week. It still needs a bit of tweaking before I’m going to feel satisfied but it on its way.

Below are the results of taking a grid, putting it on an “off grid” ground and then threaded between the thorns.
