    Gorgeous gyotaku! I love that art (along with pretty much anything else coastal!). Where did you get the gyotaku panels? Or did you make them????
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!

    I printed them myself. I learned on YouTube. I come from a fishing family and my brothers save what they think I could use printing! Some of what they catch is just toooooo big. The wahoo did not go to waste as the meat was sold. Unfortunately the octopus died coming from from a great depth. HAPPY 4th of July!!!!!!
