All in a Day's Work

A day's work....
wrapping cotton around lines of knitting wool.
Hopefully it will end up looking like water.

 I've used it before for a 'rooty' effect.

And I've couched the wool on top for tree textures.

  10. Thanks for visiting and indeed for your comments.
    With me it's always texture, texture, texture. Some people use other techniques such as stamping, printing, etc. I happen to like manipulating the fabric into textures.
