The Petoskey Stone are fossilized colonies of corals (Hexagonaria percarinata.) Their origin is from the Devonian seas that covered lake Michigan about 350 million years ago.
Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Fabric Book Petoskey Stone Page
When I made the fabric book representing Michigan icons. I couldn't resist making a page about the petoskey stone. Th background was muslin fabric that had words printed across the page for a background. All of the words were related to Michigan. The petoskey stone photograph was printed on Vellum and sticked to the background with a zigzag stitch.
