|Sennen Cove - Cornwall|
As a family, we collect shells and beach debris from most visits to the sea, and our 'collection' lives in our front garden. I love this collection.
I was tickled by the shells I saw used in art work on the wall of Alison Deegan's studio, in a feature in Mollie Makes. Shells stitched on felt.
I had a rough idea of what I wanted to make & planned out the piece using some favourite shells. I used applique, free-machine embroidery and hand sewing, enjoying using my Sylko threads and other metallic threads.
Not sure how to display it yet, but I really felt myself get lost in making this. Here are some closeups.
Ho hum, for Cornish Coves!
Here's to your hols and big skys!
