For the fifth lesson of the class from Susan Sorrell at www.joggles.com, the inspiration was to be rocks or shells. Here is mine based on part of the same shell shape I used for the cardboard stencil. The hand dyed fabric has pieces of net and painted cheesecloth on it. The shell shapes are stitched with perle cotton using needlelace, then sequins are attached with beads. The background is stitched with twisted silk thread. This one was harder for me to resolve-maybe because it is too structured.
