My first Embroidered Rock….

In my last post I showed you how I created these little rocks from pebbles taken from my friends driveway. They fit beautifully in the palm of your hand and are very tactile.

The only problem I had was how was I going to decorate them! So many things to chose from…… In the end I decided on a little embroidery with silks.

Just enough to give some contrast but not too much to cover over the lovely alpaca felt. There is a nice weight to the little rock, and when you hold it in your hand it becomes lovely and warm. And shabby chic comes to mind!
