InstructionsI used several pictures from our anniversary trip to Belize.
Type of item: Home Decor
quilting cotton fabric, black Aurifil thread, Crayon d'Arche water-soluable pastels, textile medium, fabric paint and paint extender, beads, charms, and a seahorse
What was your inspiration?
I love sea turtles and am always excited when we see one when we are snorkeling. We celebrated our 40th anniversary by going to Belize. We stayed 4 days at Turneffe Island Resort which is 1 1/2 hours away from the mainland by boat. The snorkeling is amazing and the beach outside our room is my "happy place."
What are you most proud of?
I like the way the stitching turned out and the layering of colors that Lola taught in the class.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Do what Lola says: just go for it. When you make a mistake--that's OK! Just keep on going!
