Here's where I left off last post with my pebble:
It was beginning to take shape, but there was a lot more encrusting needed.......
All the stitching on the pebble is completed
Here's a different angle
As you can see, I added a bit of colour........and some beads
shaped, stuffed and sewed
I think I should have added more stuffing
there's lots of tatting on here: Josephine Knots and chains in different threads
I think the tatting adds an organic look to the pebble
I used some plastic canvas for the base, and it worked well.
Gee, there's not much pebble showing, is there? oh, dear..tsk tsk
maybe next pebble I'll have to use some restraint. hmm, is that possible? lol
I really, really like the net stitch shown here
it seems to have captured some worn, unraveling rope...
I've so enjoyed myself working on this challenge
Thanks so much Deb and Marjolein introducing me to this new madness.........
I've been scoping the drawers and secret places looking for more goodies to use in more pebbles.
Just think, I could use some rusty bits fabric and add metal items, letting the metal bits add more rust to the fabric and the thread. That would be cool.
I want to start another pebble, but i think I should do my TAST first. maybe. muahaha
I hope you're doing something you love.
Thanks for visiting.
