You may or may not be familiar with Jude Hill's Magic Feather project ....... all the info can be found here.
While there do have a look at the feathers contributed from stitchers all over the world, they are so beautiful & the variety submitted is astounding.......creativity at it's best!
Unfortunately I was too late to send in some feathers but Jude has now put out a call for appliqued stones, so I've picked out bits & pieces of cotton & silk from my scraps to make a few pebbles to add to the project.

I'm enjoying making these as their shape is not meant to be uniform so any rough circle/oval that evolves is what ends up being stitched.
If you fancy sending Jude some stones, the details can be found in this blog post
