Nearly Finished! Obstacle Course for Fish

Added a few bits of wool roving under the tulle then machine embroidered. Not sure whether I will frame it or put a binding on and make a wall hanging.

Finished free-machine embroidery

This last addition came from out of the blue! (excuse the pun). I didn’t like the net dulling over the colours so I burnt it off with a heat gun. this didn’t damage the underneath part because the net is nylon and the rest is cotton. However, the burn off looked messy so I found some orange nylon organza and stitched over that onto my picture. Then I burnt this as well.

The result – it’s stuffed!!  Who wants to look at a picture of foul sea water obscuring the scene?

Maybe I’ll start drawing again.

BTW, I accidently hit the like button – I’m not really that vain.
