stone completed - as in greece


I finished a stone yesterday for my project.  I had high hopes of having all of my stones completed by now but then life tangled my yarn and I had to focus on other things.  I'm not going to set an official deadline for myself, lest that tempt fate to throw more tangles my way, but for those of you who have been patiently waiting for me to stitch your stones, work is underway.

Today's stone came to me all the way from Greece where Ariadne gathered it from the beach at the foot of the the Olympus mountains.  The thought of the water guided me in the color choice for the wool and the idea of grecian ruins and the lovely bits of sea finds that Ariadne incorporates into her own work led me to add random stitches and clay beads.

I hope the stone captures a bit of what you experienced while gathering it, Ariadne.  Thank you for sending it to me.

The gathering slowly grows.

Happy Friday everyone!
