TAST Week 12: Barbed Chain
Barbed chain got me thinking about desert plants so I started with an ocotilo and added a barrel cactus, a sun and a desert hare. The stitches are a combination of alternating and single barbed chain, chain stitch, french knots and detached chain.
I work full time as an engineer and have a small craft business, What Jenny Makes. I love needlework, textiles and jewelry of all kinds and am very interested in color. I also am an avid reader, a very good cook, and an amateur photographer. You can find my work for sale at www.whatjennymakes.com or in my Etsy shop: What Jenny Makes. If you are interested in sharing my love of literature, I am the current owner of The Book Group List and The Literature Study Group in Yahoo Groups.
