Pebble adventure

It seems that on Stitching Fingers many members are joining a pebble adventure in the subgroup Hand Embroidery. When I looked a the pebble it was love on the first sight. I had to try it!
But I didn't own a embroidery hoop, I never use one.
 But for this project it is necessary.
Yesterday I bought an 8 inch hoop. It was the only size available in the little shop I have in the little town nearby.
Yesterday evening I have started right away and had done this. It is very addictive :)
Today I am working further on this project. When the weather becomes a bit better in the weekend I 'll go to the shore to find some pebbles to sew in the fabric.
Now it is raining cats and dogs and storm!

Wat een geweldig mooi experiment. Het lijkt wel op het middeleeuwse borduurwerk van kerkgewaden en zo! Prachtig!Ik ben reuze benieuwd naar jou werk?

Your work is beautiful! I really like that stitch on the bead. Is it like a whipped web stitch over a bead? It looks so pretty!

Hi Ati,
How have you been my friend?
Sorry I have missed a few days of visiting your blog but here I am! :)
I will be doing something like this soon. From one of my Yahoo groups we are having a swap of these. I love how yours is turning out. Can't wait to see it finished.
