Angies UTS block

Angies UTS block
Angies UTS block,
originally uploaded by Pinyon Creek Stitchin'.
I'm on the "winding down" part of several rr's! Woohoo!!! This is a pic of the work I did on an under the
sea block. Admittedly I was sort of low on inspiration when the block got here and I finally decided that I would do a little mermaid to take care of the turtle, seahorse and fishies! :_) I did a little bit of brazillian embroidery for her coral belt and bracelet as well as on her tail to give it some waviness. Then I added the flowers and assorted seaweed beside her. The face is one I made with sculpey and then applied some gold and copper leaf for an ethereal look. Hopefully she doesn't just look like an alien! LOL!!! I will be adding some more pics tomorrow. I have gotten the actual blocks made for my contribution to our local groups logo banner. I also have made a block for the NO project....not sure if this is one that I will REALLY do or if i'll make another one. I'm sort of stuck between what I want to express with this particular block. Anywhoo...more later!

LOVE this mermaid! Makes me want to do an ocean theme block next time we're in a rr together so you can put one on my block!
When are we going to see your block you got back from the colorado cq group's rr?
