Recently I had the opportunity to stitch an Under the Sea block for my friend, Lyn. I jumped at the chance to do a block at my own pace without any deadlines as there are in round robins. So, here it is! There is a fair bit of seaweed growth made by attaching organza ribbon with beads and couching down some knitting yarns with interesting texture. There is also some feather stitch plant growth but a lot of it disappeared into the background. I made some netting with detached buttonhole stitch and was pleased to find wooden beads to attach that I thought looked just like the old cork floats that would be used on fishnet. Other than that there is a bit of this and that sewn on - shells and charms, a beaded starfish, a few little plant like growths and lastly - how could a resist a Laurel Birch fish button? lol I hope Lyn likes this block - I had a lot of fun stitching it! It will be heading away in the mail on Monday.
