Trying Something New

Our Guild had a Mug Rug Challenge a few weeks ago.  I wanted to try some thread drawing which I have never done before.  I had seen a tutorial somewhere and remembered that I liked the look.
I used a tone on tone fabric in a pale mauve and had some Aurifil thread that was a perfect match.  I drew the basic outline and then filled in.  A vintage piece of calico for the binding finished it perfectly. 
It's a good thing I'm not a perfectionist, but I was really pleased with the finish.  And these are my first pebbles!!  They don't look too bad from across the street, he,he.  
Happy stitching today,
