Three Things; Works in Progress – Stitched Driftwood

Sue Barnes' Stitched Driftwood

This week the Works in Progress come from Sue here at Shore Cottage Studio. Sue has been collecting pieces of driftwood and stitching into them – aren’t they wonderful?

This first piece is inspired by the feather shape of the driftwood. Sue has handmade the long bead from a map.

This final piece has two map beads laced onto the driftwood via some rusty staples already present on the wood. Sue has used chunky rust dyed string for this piece.
