A Snorkelers View

Snorkeling is great fun, and this is my snorkeling view of the seas around New Zealand. 
As you look up from the bottom you glimpse the sun as shimmering ripples of light that penetrate the clear blue seas.

Some breakers overhead cause swirls of mini whirlpools that gently sway the fern-like 
structures on the sea-bed.

Seaweed calmly drifts by with the current and it waves seductively at you as it continues 
on with its dainty ballet dance.

The wall hanging is created with raw edge hand sewn applique.I used my own hand-dyed fabrics along with some commercial batiks. The embellishments are created with a variety of textured yarns and cotton threads.

The whole piece encompasses all of my hobbies and passions –  swimming & snorkelling, 
Free Form crochet, hand embroidery, and art quilts.
