I have always loved collecting stones and rocks from the beach and at mineral fairs, and find the structures of semi precious stones very attractive. One of my favourites is banded agates.
For this project I used crochet, couching by machine and marbling on fabric to make the agate slices. These are needle felted and sewn onto a wet felted background, based on the beautiful marble Scotsman Steps in Edinburgh, which I walked down last time I was home, in April.
I went to a nearby beach here in Moss to find a nice real stone background for the photo.
I enjoyed this year’s challenge, and hope that everyone else did too. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s projects.
