I was making something for the lovely sheepBlue for OWS. She asked for an embroidered twinchie, and she also had MissingWillow's marvellous miniature crime scene on her list of inspiration. Plus, some of you may remember a previous incident with a tentacle, which I knew sheepBlue liked. So all these things came together in my brain .....





It is made of silk fabric, felt, wire and embroidery thread, and tiny 00 model figures. I mounted it on a 2" x 2" artist canvas (just stitched on, no glue). It was a lot of fun to make!!

Poor little sailors .... there is no escape from the Tentacle ....
