the rocky coast

day after tomorrow i leave for the maine coast for three weeks. i can not even wait. it is my favorite place to be. last year i drew a few things to embroider but still have not stitched them up. the border above is indian paisley with a seahorse and shell instead of paisleys. i may add a delicate indian/hicks hybrid band on the top and/or bottom to beef it up. i hope i can squeeze in some stitching with my busy staring out at the ocean schedule. i will also take half a suitcase of assorted wire and thread and beads and glue and soldering iron type stuff just in case.

i changed my mind about the grass in the first version but i do like the blue and yellow fish...the koi were inspired by my mother-in-law's japanese garden.
