As I was photographing the stones I made this week I couldn't help but notice how well they seemed to blend in to their surroundings.
When I make a stone I pick some wool colors that I like and that I'm "feeling" at that time. I'll hold the felted stone in my hand and decide what colors of thread seem to work with it, and then start to stitch. There isn't a plan, I just start to work. It's a very organic process and one that suits me best.
So it tickles me that while I'm snapping pics, a small oak leaf falls and lands near a rock that complements it, right down to the bumps on the underside, or when I notice the bug trails match those I've stitched in a stone.
It makes me feel more connected to my source of inspiration.
These stones will be headed to my shop but I think I'm going to have to make a set soon to leave out on my favorite bug-chewed log as a thank you of sorts.
In other news, I have a fun weekend ahead of me and I can't wait to share.
I hope you all have a great weekend too.
