Lisa's Shell

The Under The Sea RR is under way! I have finished the first block for me. Lisa had made some really beautiful blocks. Very unique! I got to be the first to work on them! I chose the "inside" of the shell to do. Of course as we all know the inside of shells are normally a pinkie-peach type color. Maybe it is the inside of the shells I like................................. Well any way the inside of this shell started out pinkie-peach! I used lots of those colors and in the beads I used pearl like colors. As I was working on this block I had started calling it "A Mermaids Treasure". I usually don't name the blocks that I stitch on in a round robin, I just could not help it with this one!


The tear drop beads are from a vintage necklace I found at my favorite thrift store. At the time that I bought them I had not a clue as to what I would do with them, when I saw this block...... I also used silk chenille, silk organza, lots of sparkly pink beads, some Rainbow Gallery pink braid, and of course the mermaid and her treasure with a back ground of a cut up doily!

Lisa, I am hoping that you like what I have done and it is what you envisioned!
