Rockin' It!

Last week I visited one of my favorite local needlework shops and found some natural wool roving for sale at a fantastic price. I bought some and used it for a project that I've been wanting to try for awhile now. I gathered a few small river rocks and wet felted a cover for them using this tutorial I found on YouTube. Then I tried my hand at embellishing them with some embroidery stitches using crochet thread instead of floss - definitely not perfect - but I like the texture - and the neutral colors. I think these will look pretty displayed under a glass cloche.

I really like the way they turned out. They would look neat sitting in a large bird's nest under the cloche, too. Good job!
