Block 4 - oyster stitch & Algerian eyes

The TAST stitches for week 30 and 31 inspired me for the embroidery on my fourth block for Karen’s class Embroider, Embellish, Create. First I made a cutwork circle with cotton a broder. Then I made the  oyster stitches with perle 5. I wanted to make a connection with my older work, so I used part of my pulled thread experiments behind the circle. I used the part with the waffle stitch.
Then I added Algerian eyes with 1 thread of stranded DMC rayon.
This is the complete bottom left corner of my block.
There’s a bigger photo of this part on my Flickr-page.
