Under the sea for Sharlee

Here is Sharlee52 first block.
Sharon has done 2 blocks, one in greens and blues which she has called Earth to Sea. It is this block that I chose to embellish. I have used Marlett thread in a Taupe colour to work buttonhole stitch along the seamline alternating above and below the line. This is to break up the "straightness" of the line. I have then used a small piece of knitting yarn in browns/greens and stitched it down using a single thread and featherstitching to make seaweed. Two larger beads with seed bead tentacles complete the patch to make 2 sea anemones. French knots in Edmar Lola Blue/Pink variegated complete the small closed anemones at the base of the larger two.

You're really in an underwater mode at the moment Hope!
They're both looking good.
