This was a wonderful adaptation of the last design. Jumping from a C 8 grid to a C 10 grid. The way that the continuous designs came together pleases me in every way. Bigger sphere at 51 cm, and smaller thread offer a lot of detail. Maybe it’s the bright flower spots that give me the happy feeling. Every time I sat down to work on this one I could feel that happy portal pop open. The whole medium gives meĀ  an endless stream of pleasure but this particular sphere seems even more joyous. The continuous design of green began with a question. I made an error when I laid out the center support lines for this design and while trying to decide if pulling it out and redoing was the right thing to do I determined that I really liked the spaces inside each center. they became a secondary pattern that would appear in each star center.
