Time To Shell Out…

Remember the other part of the hessian experiment?

The shell

The Shell, in progress

This is the 10oz hessian, with a considerably tighter weave than the 7.5oz, although still soft and quite variable. I don’t know what it is about working on this material, it certainly has its frustrations, but I really like it – perhaps it’s the drapier texture, I’m still not sure. Perhaps it’s because it’s irregular, and that appeals to the bit of me that doesn’t like to play by the rules. Anyhow, I’ve picked up The Shell again and am making some progress on it. I think I may have mentioned before that this is not my normal palette, and I’m finding out about these more subtle colours as I go along, but it makes a change, and as I’m currently brooding on developing a stained glass inspired piece, this one is keeping all those glorious exuberant shades under control until I’m ready to let them loose.

Happy stitching, drawing, quilting etc.

    1. Thank you, I’m enjoying this one, I have an image in my mind of it hanging above an old oak dresser with a couple of shiny conch shells set beneath it…funny the things that spring to mind.

It would be lovely to hear your thoughts...
