Under the Sea

I'm a little bit behind but it's still February for another 8 and 1/2 hours so here is my postcard for 'Under the Sea'. I found just the right blue background fabric that to me looked like it has a great piece of coral already there. Swim little fishies. They and the green coral are hand appliqued and then I backstitched water with a blue metalic thread.

This is the postcard I received in yesterday's mail. Aren't those little turtles just the cutest. I think you call it couching and it's done with a gold metalic thread over wool with blue metalic thread for the water.
Back to the cutting mat for my next project.
Happy Sewing

oh my next ufo to finish is just like the first fishy postcard.
btw spelling just shrug your shoulders I have found and read that if the first letter and the last are right then people just know what the word is. oh boy the mistakes I make lol.
