Desert pebble vegetation continued.


This is where I was. The grass was much too high, so I cut it back.
The wrinkles will get a treatment below.


With a needle I pull the fabric up where I want excess fabric/wrinkle.


The wrinkles are sewed down in the folds with a little straight stitch.


French knots in different sizes fasten the wrinkles and hide the sewing stitches.
I also added a little rock (about 7 mm). This rock is glued on a threaded piece of plastic.

  1. I just came across the instructions for this techn ique in a file I kept from the Embroidery Guild. I really like it that you are NOT doing this piece likeall in white. I thought I'd like to try it in colors and now that I have seen your project start, I'm sure of it. Looks great!
