I have started the Circles design by Lois Kershner for the ANG Stitch of the Month for 2008. There are several variations that will be used in creating this piece. I started out by tracing the circle and some of the other markings for location. Then we had to paint the left side of the canvas and I used acrylic paint. The first design I have in is done using a four way Bargello pattern and three shades of blue DMC floss. In working a four way Bargello, each quadrant is worked and then the canvas is turned 90 degrees before starting the next section.
