And now we need a new storage container for " really useful flotsam, jetsam, driftwood, shells, cogs and other junk for PEBBLES" :)
Mum (90) is still doing tapestries and will finish some other embroideries when she has time! I thought she may enjoy 'helping' with a Pebble, as there is complete freedom and she won't feel restricted/frustrated by fingers that don't always do as they are told. I will line up pre-threaded needles in a range of threads and see what happens. She wants me to record her life, so I have to keep her chatting while I take notes. Hopefully her Life Pebble will keep the stories flowing.

That is a great idea to get your mom to add a little stitching to a pebble! I was digging through some buttons tonight and found some cogs and wheels from something...You know my first thought....THESE WOULD BE GREAT ON A PEBBLE!!!
Of all the reasons, we have created these fun pebbles, this seems the best of all! I hope her fingers do exactly what she tells them to do and her words flow easily.
That would be a treasured pebble for sure, Rose!
The stitch of this week has been chosen for us. Sharon even mentions us "pebbles makers" in her blog post.
By chance I stiched I small whipped wheel this weekend. I am thinking of doing another whipped shape.
Hello Oma, What a lovely idea to have your Mum stitch while talking with your about her life. The pebble will be real treasure indeed. Hugs Judy
Those baubles would look great on a pebble. Nice as contrast as they look very soft.
Thank you Deb. I loved making those babbles. VBG I plan to make lots more. I think partially wet felting would give your creation lots of dimension. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your wonderful comment. Hugs Judy
Oh my, you are doing so many neat things with this! I love the differnt textures....that little grouping above the whipped wheel is great!
Iris, I LOVE what you've done! It's a great beginning, and I look forward to seeing more as it progresses!
Hugs from Suz
Iris, this looks great. Love that creepy crawling thing!
