Walking on the Wild Side

Since I have a bunch of funky yarns (don't you just love the one with "cocoons"?), I laid a few on a small piece of the glued muslin.  They immediately reminded me of an underwater reef.  Hmmm....

I took the stringy yarn and covered it with wax, using some of the individual yarns to make these cool spirals.  And this is as far as I've been able to get with this piece as it seems the 'real' world has other plans for my time at the moment. 


  1. ...such an interesting start. Will you add color or continue to work with the neutral palette?

  2. I'm torn. Staying within the neutrals is out of my comfort zone...but then, color can take on a life of its own, and I'm wanting this to be more about textures. Nothing like being on the fence!

  3. How do I unsubscribe to the comment posts? I must have hit this when I posted yesterday, it is swamping my email, especially as there is a contest from this post.

  4. I feel the same way about color -- I have a lot of trouble working without it. That said, this is so cool by itself...
