Coastal Meanderings: a new-old piece

I have started piecing together some of the embellished / stitched samplers i have been playing with off and on for the past year or so, and realised they might  combine together eventually into one complete piece….working title  ” Coastal Meanderings”!  this is a rough first play at how it might start to come together: am now inspired to finish other pieces in the same theme, and start to work them with more purpose.

tiny treasures

a collection of tiny treasures, all scattered on the beach on the same morning a week or two ago……plenty of inspiration here for sketching/stitching line, shape, colour, texture in a very simple form……

inter-tidal treasures

just checked the date of my last posting and could not believe it……habits are easily broken! a long delay in the journal;  not sure where the time has gone but it seems a new start is called for…….and as often happens it has been prompted by a visual feast….a wonderful display of inter-tidal treasure on the beach in the late afternoon autumn sun. Textile updates to follow soon!
