Ice sheets textile piece

I did a post about a month ago on an idea I had for a textile piece based on the ice sheets at Loch Erochty (im writing this on my phone and haven’t worked out how to insert links yet!)

I finally made a start on a test piece last night and I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out. Because I’ve been making this in my head for a while (basically since I first laid eyes on the ice!) And I’m essentially just stitching down rippled fabric it only took a couple of hours to do which is just as well as I need to have the proper one done by next Tuesday when I head down south to visit the family – Queen of the last minute as usual!

Think this is going to look amazing made with the piece of white pure silk I’ve got waiting in the wings – roll on the weekend so I can get cracking! ☺
