Time for some interesting stitches:-) The iris is to be a buttonhole in a circle. In the center I always bring the needle to the same spot.
You can see that I'm trying to work properly, as I made a knot at the right side that would be snipped afterwards:-)
Two small stitches as a base. They come from inside the iris.
This is quite interesting stitch (it probably has a name:-D), and I'm sorry that I couldn't enjoy it very much at such a small object:-)
I led my needle between the two stitches, brought it under one of them and repeated with the other side.
It will look scary, won't it :-D
I'm lucky to be finished with green now.
