A stone completed. In the aftermath of the holidays, the quiet act of finishing this stone was soothing to my overstimulated soul. This stone came to me from Sherry on the shores of Larsen Bay, Alaska. That view on the postcard? That's her yard and her stone was gathered from there.
It's little wonder her stone was so soothing to stitch. I think it carried some of its beach-side calm with it.
I used a golden yellow wool on her stone and let the blues of the water and the pebbly texture of the beach inspire my stitches. I was also inspired by her island location and found myself stitching an island of yellow amidst the blue.
The gathering of stones grows.
I made a mail run the other day and oh how I love opening up the PO box to see packages of stones waiting for me. The stories some of you are including with your offered stones have moved me so. I only hope I can do justice to them. Now that the holidays are over I'll be able to work more consistently and I'm eager to show you more soon.
Thank you to everyone who has sent a stone off or have helped spread the word. If you or someone you know would like to send one to me, you can find the details HERE
