Buttonhole stitch on a bike wheel ! ...

The cell project has been stitched at odd moments when I have a free hour or so of dedicated time. It's been quite engrossing & taking shape VERY slowly - naturally it's because of the hand-stitching involved:

Above is just a small section at its beginning: straight stitches hold odd plastics in position & then get overstitched using buttonhole to distort both the stitching & the plastic.

I'm hoping to get a morning or so to write-up about this stage but for the time being - this is all there is!!

PS The bike wheel is an integral part of the cell structure!
