A combination of buttonhole stitches. The large circle is so called cutwork - which I learned at Karen Ruanes button class. A small piece of another fabric is being fixed from underneeth with buttonhole stitches. I made a double row so unluckily enough it can not be seen very well.
The Paisley design: I filled it with lacy buttonhole stitches in different colours
Again lace to the inside and beads in the middle The lace business is keeping me occupied - I love it
