Textural Lava
















Hi
Here are a few pics of my textural "Lava" piece. The Biege part is actually "shredded strips of tights" (stockings) ...just threaded through a large needle and sewn... other threads include: perle threads, wools, shredded glittery lycra material.
it's hard to tell but it is quite 3 dimensional especially the "stocking" bits!
I had a good day at Lace group today, managed to get quite a bit done on my latest Wire bobbin lace necklace ... the colours are working very well... I am not a green person but it looks good! I have had several compliments from the other gals! only about another 50 mins to do of the actual lace then I can take it off the lace pillow and add the beads and get rid of the ends! yay! then I will need to think about matching earrings!

Happy that I found your blog. Fabulous pieces this 'Lava'.
First I thought it is made with the embellisher but when I enlarged it I saw your hand stitching. Great !!
Maybe we can trade an atc some day?
Love your lace too, a few posts below. I was a lace maker once...
