Participated in the altered spool swap, and hazelly was my partner. She likes ocean life, sea turtles, star fish, jelly fish, etc. So that is the theme I went with, and this is the result.
Whole thing:
spool by HRSG, on Flickr

back
spool3 by HRSG, on Flickr

front
spool2 by HRSG, on Flickr

Sea turtle pincushion, with shell pins & sign that is a chalkboard.

The spools are covered in sand and glitter. The jellyfish are shrink plastic. The rope for wrapping is hemp, and that is an actual piece of fishing net. The sea turtle was the hardest part figuring out a pattern.
This was a challenge but fun. Once I got my idea formulated it was a matter of placing things in a successful manner. Smiley

I just love how the spools are stacked and covered with beautiful, glittery "sand"....

The real netting is really a nice touch!

You have created a lovely tranquil beach scene...ahhhhhh!!!
