This week has been pretty stressful, and work has been getting too much, so one of my days off I chose a mini project to focus on
Something that's been on my list of things to try, a pebble cover
I look for smooth and good shaped pebbles on our beach walks, and had found a few ready with this project in mind
Again I've worked organically, working round the natural shape
Other than being by the sea, that would make this a natural project to progress on to, my main reason is for decoration. The fireplace in our living room, has an empty space, which had a couple of rocks placed in there. So ive been filling the hearth with prettier shaped pebbles, and I intend to add quite a few splashes of colour. I may even try my hand at painting a few!
To help myself relax I did have another afternoon sat on the beach
Walking along the seafront
And did another round of my mandala under the warmth of the sun listening to the lapping waves
I've now completed week 7 and its growing nicely, and involves plenty of stitch counting on each row. I'll endeavour to get a full picture next week as its getting quite a size now!
I'll leave you with the beautiful bunch of tulips that hubby brought home for me
I'm loving their deep red colour...
