This may be a small embroidery but it took me the best part of a day to stitch it. Mainly because I was stitching in a single strand of silk thread, that does take time.
The inspiration for this piece is the sun, the earth, the sand dunes and the sea that surround my island. I had never thought of using feather stitch to represent the sea but it kind of works.
The beach has grass tussocks here and there and this was stitched in feather with different weights of silk thread. I added the odd detached chain on some of the arms.
As you can probably see from this close up, I stitched onto a piece of eco dyed wool.
