Under the sea

 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
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.
Happy Easter!

Another CQJP block finished!

 I just finished the second block from the peacock Crazy Quilt for the CQJP 2014. I am way behind, life is just getting in the way all the time.................
I love sewing on this CQ, I really like working with these jewel colors.
Just now I was sitting inside sewing in the sun  but bad weather is approching as you can see. 
We had very good weather the last weeks, but now it is back to rain and the winter coat.
Even nightfrost is predicted later this week......

 And at last some tulips for you from my garden!
