Embroidery Hoop

I saw the challenge at AALL & Create and thought I wanted to join in but wanted to do something different than the normal ocean/nautical theme. I decided to go with some pictures from Norway. When you live on a fjord, you live next to the ocean. There are seashells, Seaweed and all good things you find near the water.


This was a picture that Olivia and I took out on a boat heading to an island in the Trondheimsfjorden, just off of the Norwegian Sea. It was cold, rainy and gloomy but did we make the best of it. I used shells that we found in the fjord and the big shell is one of the shells from the ice age we found on the mountain. They are very fragile.

I made a little video of the creative process.


Here are some close-ups, enjoy!








Thank you for stopping today, enjoy your day to the fullest.
