I don't have a finish to show you this week, instead I have a new beginning.
This is a project I was inspired to make by a thimble!
My husband brought it back from Shetland for me ( I like to collect thimbles). It's made of pewter and has a viking longboat on it. I thought it would be a great subject for a wall hanging and something a bit different.
The sea was by far the most challenging part. I just started playing around with some shapes to see how they looked.
Eventually I settled on this......
This is a raven on the sail. I will add the detail with hand embroidery. Did you know that the vikings trained ravens to search for land? I thought that was really interesting.
So that is it so far. I will post about this from time to time so I hope you'll come back to see how its coming along.
Have a super Sunday.
til next time....
