I have started a series of quilled pieces that are sea creatures and this is the second ( the koi being my first) in the series. I have started another Octopus as well, but he won't be done for awhile... I really enjoyed doing the waves, as the tentacles and air bubbles kind of made me bonkers... So many tight curls!

Here he is in all his glory!



I am doing another Octopus right now as well, but I won't be done him for some time.. oh those crazy tentacles...


Still curious?

I have lurked here for a long time and finally decided to join. But in all my lurking, I've ogled your crafts so many times and can only bow down to your supreme awesomeness! I have yet to see something you've made that is not just absolutely jaw-dropping! This one has done it again!!!

I'm done gushing now (don't wanna sound like a creeper...heehee), but now that I'm a member, I'm "rocking" this one!

Wow!  This is amazing.  Coolest quilled piece I've seen.  I love the shadows you've captured in the photos as well.

This is incredible!!! Your hard work on the bubbles and tentacles (and everything, really) was well worth it because it's fantastic!!!
