I've been working on the sandbar on my under the sea block. It's a Stitch Along with Crazyquilters-ca and we're following suggestions by Rose Anne, our moderator. A lot of it is chain stitch with an 8 perle variegated thread and some gold thread highlights. The rest is in thin fluffy yellow wool that gives a bit of height. There are some pretty shells, but looking from the top down makes them look flat. It's coming along OK. Another area that I have to think about is closer to the top of the block and i need to make sunbeams coming through the water. Click on one of the labels below to see the naked whole block.
