Continuing backwards from Halloween Circle, I come to the Circle of Seasons.
I was making test snowflakes for another design. I was stitching them on different fabric colors with different thread colors to see which one worked best. One was done with very pale colors and for some reason I started thinking of leaves and how they would look next to the snowflake. So, I picked a pale green and added a leaf. I didn't look right so I went back to graph paper and doodled until I got a good leaf. Then next natural thing to add was a flower. At some point the idea of representing all the seasons occurred to me and I added the leaves and acorns.
The two circles I've done so far have been fun. Both have been turned into box tops. The Circle of Seasons is on top of a 4 inch paper mache box I got at a hobby store and I use it to keep overdyed threads.
I'd like to come up with a whole line of Circles. I've started on both a Christmas Circle and Winter Circle but they aren't right yet. I've imagined a Summer Circle and an Ocean Circle but haven't worked on those except for in my head.
