Lilac Project, The Beginning

I've gotten this idea to fill a vase full of lilac blossoms.
It is a vase I discovered in Montserrat (very Baltimore-like).


I start out by drawing a 1 inch circle.
Then I do a running stitch just inside the circle mark, using cotton thread.


After doing a running stitch around the circle, plus an additional few stitches, it is time to cut away the excess fabric along the drawn line.


Pulling the threat taut, I check to make sure there is some semblance of a small circle.


Now I do the 1-2-3-4 design on the front, and a little lilac bloom is made.



There.  Only 1,473 left to do!
