Pine Cones

I love picking up bits of nature when I'm on a walk. I love looking at the different shapes of things, their intricacy and geometry is so close to perfection. I have a particular thing for pine cones. I think they are beautiful. I have so many at home and when I was bored on the weekend, I made some into wall hangings.

Do not ask me if there is a meaning behind these, or why they look the way they look. I just took some pine cones and branches and embroidery floss and this is what came out. I felt a bit silly at first, wrapping bits of thread around a twig, but in the end I really enjoyed the process of creating something. I am quite pleased with my little pieces of primitive art.
