This is the second block I have embellished for the
Under The Sea themed Round Robin of CQI.
It is for Dana in New Zealand.
Dana loved to have a "coral reef" kind of look, so I started with making a colorful fantasy fish.
Here a close up of the fish.
After that I added the green fern, stitched in a green variegated perle silk cotton hand dyed by my friend Lorraine from www.colourcomplements.com/shop
After that I stitched the orange coral from bugle beads and added the beaded starfish.
At last I added a little piece of tatting and the seahorse and crab charms.
