So my swap partner for the anything goes needlework swap lives near the great barrier reef and loves the ocean. So I descided to make her a piece of the ocean for the days she cant get there in person. This is what I came up with.

A 10 inch hoop, there is a layer of flannel, satin and netting to get the look of the ocean, my husband painted the light area at the top left of the hoop to look like the sun peaking through the water. And I stitched away. I also made her a needle book too.

I am so jealous of your skills!

The subject matter is also very special...I love that you used netting--what a unique technique...
