week 19

Last week while travelling I came across a reference to psiloceras planorbis - ammonites from the Jurassic period that can be found fossilized in rocks in the south eastern areas of for week 19's scrumble I have incorporated a crochet ammonite-like spiral shape set amongst a loose interpretation of some of the shapes and colours of the Welsh countryside. Mohair and other soft, hazy yarns were used to mirror the muted blending of even the stronger colours that were often apparent in the spring landscape.


  1. Great to meet you on Friday Prudence, I love this weeks scrumble...two of my favourite things used as inspiration..Wales and fossils...what could be better ? !

  2. Oooo...this is my favorite color combination! Happy earthtones. Brilliant!

  3. Thanks, Ellen and Steph. It was great meeting you the other day too, Steph; I really loved the greenish blue barnacle-like and hyperbolic piece you were working on.
