I have always been a very literal thinker. I am very much a "think INside the box" person. I can't help it. I try, I really do! Oh well... since emboidery isn't my forte, I decided to use crochet in my expression of Antarctica for A Collaboration. In doing so, I adapted a square from 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton (it's a neat book; check it out!).
So, hopefully these pictures are pretty self-explanatory, but just in case, the little popcorn stitch bumps are icebergs and the blue trim is the water. I TOLD you I was a literal thinker!
I actually really like how it turned out. This was my first usage of the popcorn stitch, and it was easy and fun, and I love the effect.
