Studio work

Today I started beading the stamped fish motifs on the "Herring Spawn" wall hanging,

and I began the planning for another version of "Ocean Currents", using the same fabrics, but this time with large english paper pieced hexagon shapes.
A photograph is so useful to help give an objective view of a piece. I see now that the fabrics at the top that are leaf prints will not work. Only the small prints that read as solids are effective. Good to see that and I will take the top leaf prints out of the mix.
