UFO

Whilst sorting out some fabric for my next project I came across this unfinished object earlier today. Since it has lain stuffed in a bag for a year (or two!), I thought blogging about it might give me some inspiration for the next stage.


Why did it get abandoned? A design from one of my own photographs, it was originally going to be paint over stitch hence the rather plain colours of the shells but then I got all precious over the silk velvet and the modelled limpets looked much larger when covered with stitch so until inspiration strikes again ..............

Lovely shapes and textures.
I often put work away and then come back to it.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

This is gorgeous! I agree with Paula - those limpets are near perfect - it is a tremendous arrangement of them - I hope you finish this soon.
