    Under the Sea

    Each summer my friend and I pick a theme to do when I visit her at her Lake Hse.
    This yr it was "under the sea"...
    This is my version, just needs a few embellishments,binding or facing.
    I used all diff types of yarns for seaweed on left for 3D. We shared fabrics with fish, seashells to cut out for applique. I have an emb machine so i made my own patch applique, divers, swimmers,chest, turtles, fish,seahorse.

    She did a 3 panel scene and belongs to bd and will post photo's when she's done...

    thank you for all your comments. It was fun especially doing the same theme w/a friend and both doing totally diff pieces. Her opting for 3 panels and less is more...me one panel and more is more...I just couldn't stop adding...a few times I thought I was done to just see space and kept adding...
    I started another which is going to be all embroidered turned into a wall hanging.
