Pebble Adventure Continues

When Marjolein and I started this adventure,
I thought it would be a fun little stitch along.
I am quickly coming to the conclusion
we have just scratched the surface
on this adventure.

Lorraine sent me an email,
telling me, I may be interested
in seeing this.
I would post the photo, but I am
unsure of how to do that.
After I picked my chin up off the floor
I wrote Lorraine back, before I
had even read the text.
After seeing the photo and reading
about yet another project
Jennifer had designed.
I  was curious to know more
about
Jennifer Rochester
the stitcher.

Through a Google Search
I found:
Are there words to describe,
such things as this?

Then there was this:
Making your Mark
Jennifer Rochester
Use stitches in a creative way

Quoting here from:

Sleeve

I have been studying white work sleeves from pieces in my family and historical collections - in particular, a pair of 18th Century removable half-sleeves and a pair in cotton Broderie Anglaise from the Victorian era.
The former pair has evolved into a hand-stitched paper and cloth vessel.
The latter has become a panel with links to my lazy Summer childhood days of lying in the long grass with my sister, making daisy chains and playing the petal-plucking game... "He loves me, he loves me not".


I found a link to a book she
has written:

I so love finding new exciting things to stitch! 

Here is my progress on the Pebble Adventure:
I have begun the process of adding texture.

I vaguely remember a piece with trees by Jennifer Rochester. I'll search for it.
