TAST Herringbone: curves

I wasn't quite finished with Herringbone. I wanted to do some stitching on curves. I drew a paisley shape and outlined it with a curved herringbone, varying the size as I went. I then stitched a second row staggered to the first. I then drew two circles. The one in the paisley I filled with stitches of varying size. The other circle I stitched in a circular motion, taking the stitch wider at the perimeter.

I then filled the remaining space in the paisley with a stacked herringbone.

Before I stitched the paisley and circle I added an other row of herringbone. This time I took the stitch wider at the back so that the front "crosses" overlapped more and created a criss-cross effect.
