A Stitch Challenge with textile.org

There are lots of challenges on the web with people being confined to hoe because of covid 19. Here in NZ we are isolated in our personal bubbles for 10 days now. This weekly embroidery challenge is being run by textile.org in the UK with a different artist each week. This week it is Cas Holmes (Stitch Stories). There is a little video with her inspiration and instructions plus a pdf file. With Cas, she encourages us to find something in our home environment as a focus for the stitchery. I have always been a nature forager and shells are one of the things I have collected since I was a child. I am trying hard in this piece to be freer and more spontaneous in my application without worrying about neatening all the applied edges. This still has a wee way to go yet
