Eight inch diameter
You would think I would learn... I keep promising. It was late when I finished the border last evening and I could not resist sewing it up. Of course, I sewed the ends too well and cannot undo the mistake; I attached the thread to the wrong place!
The green thread is Zwicky Silk, which is about a #20-#30 in weight, that Krystle sent to me a couple of years ago (can it be that long ago?!). I have two spools of this silk - one in burgundy, one in green - and I save them because this fibre is no longer on the market. It is wonderful thread.
Because I was becoming bored, I added beads to the last round. I am a sucker for white beads - they are my absolute favourite - though I usually use colourful ones for more effect when playing with colour.
Then, I could not resist starting a small motif, though it was by now very late, and so many mistakes were made on the first try. However, it is a great pattern and I am going to finish this before I begin either the small linen square or the BIG one. : )
