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!

I was afraid of the Sharpie, but I used the really fine line one and it was fine. My thread was pretty fine, also, and I freaked the first time I went out of the Sharpie line (pretty soon after I started!!) but I said to myself "Lola said to not worry about it" so I went on, and you know, it REALLY didn't matter because once it is colored, those biffs don't show AT ALL. So do what she says and just go for it! Thanks, Lola, you are an inspiration.

kiiujwenin I justlove this piece. I love underwater stuff anyways so this is just up my alley. You done a wonderful job in your use of colored pencils, and design. You took your time and made this very...very..special. I enjoy looking at this piece because it gives me solace. Thanks for sharing this lovely piece of thread art with all of us to enjoy. I am proud of you and you should be also.
