Back in March (here) I mentioned I had been doodling. I've been playing with it on and off since then and it's starting to come together quite nicely. It's based on my favourite part of our coastline to visit, Granny's Bay.
Just a couple of highlights
It's a very simple bit of stitching really and I just go where I fancy with it, but I would like to add a little extra colour, so this weekend I decided to try it out on a smaller piece.
The background is just watercolour pencil on wet fabric, I dried it out on the pebbles in the garden, it gave me a good idea of the coastal feel I'm after.
A little hint of something there.
When it was dry I added a little more dry pencil.
Now it's time to stitch over it as usual. If the rain ever stops I plan to take this out and about with me so I can cram in a little more stitching time.
When I'm happy I'll try it out on the large piece when the time comes, and if I don't like it, the whole thing can be dunked in some water until the colour fades!
