I haven't posted an update for a while. Now my phone is fixed I can take photos again. I've done some more work on the half circles, although I still have concerns about the shape, and the jap in one twisted while I was plunging it. I'm leaving that for now to see if Tracy has some magic trick to fix it! Also, a lot has gone on in the centre circle, some felt padding in the middle, and string padding around that to create the doughnut shape, then I covered it all with silk. The cutwork has been tricky, it has been a lot further around the circle a couple of times now, but come back out again because the angle was wrong, the spacing was wrong or it all just went wrong!!! As a result of this, I'm starting to gain confidence, but I'm still not getting the angle right. Maybe it will come with a few more tries!
