geological design board, from sketch to stitch, part one

this simple shell design provided plenty of inspiration for stitch.

I love that shell shape...I love all rounded and soft shapes it seems.... and sure do love the soft "velvetty" smocking....

hang in there Guzzi....

Great designs. Did you use a computer program to do the different designs or did you paint them? I'm thinking of getting Photoshop Elements 7 and am interested in what programs other people use and what they think of them. Hope your not getting too frustrated just being able to use one hand.

Thanks for posting these Sue, it's interesting to see the design process and follow it along. I hope the soup and sympathy hit the spot! Keep smiling!

Love the nautilus shell designs. I have always loved that spiral motif. Yay, Mom!!! Soup and casserole!

C&G design boards take me back, I have finally got my pop up blocker to let the comments box pop up, so I am working backwards from 31/12,
I have enjoyed all these posts some beautiful work, thanks for sharing,

I hope you are managing a bit better with the cooking now, we don't realise how much we use both hands till one is out of action, I am sorry I can't think of quick and easy just now and as I'm veggie you prosibly won't want them anyhow,

take care
