Gift From The Sea

While walking on the beach, I had this urge to check out a spot up against the rocks at the base of a cliff, so I went over for a look. For our class tomorrow, we are supposed to bring a grid of some sort to use as a resist when painting fabric. I have learned over time to listen as much as possible to that inner direction, and now I have my needed grid!When I saw this, I thought of doing
this needleweaving sampler - not great to look at, but some of the stitches I did involved similiar loops before I pulled them tighter. It's part of the raised stitches unit we are working on.

The warps are awaiting me...

Perfect grid - looks like a nice piece to weave into as well.

The fabric was helpful for placing the warp - I just 'touched the surface' with the sampling.
