Rock formation

I have loved finishing my mineral piece this week. The felt base went under the embellisher again to have the grey scrim applied. I added french knot to the rock layers and then went to town with metallic threads, beads and some coiled wire. The photos aren't brilliant, the spangly bits really catch the light. I have decided to have this framed in a box frame. Our living room has a bit of Edwardian library feel, (with the tasteful addition of Lego!) so I think this will look like a rock slice bought back from a gentleman's grand tour-----or the fluff from a drag queens tumble dryer----you decide!
This week I will be trying to finish the cutting for a quilt project, the first step should really be changing the blade in my rotary cutter. Bye bye fingers! xx

We have just opened up a blog shop and you might like to pop over to have a look. There is a Gift draw you might like to join in. Good luck.
