UTS Finished Jacque's Block

I have so enjoyed working on my part of Jacque's Under The Sea block...and it is now ready to move on to the next person on the Round Robin list...
Here are some closeups...the only things added are the beads and charms. But, they finish off the stitching nicely I think...and make it look like a real scene. I can almost see those fish swimming! Here are the rocks...some clay roses are added to the green stump-work plant, and a purple glass one is added below. A couple of German glass beads in blue, and some flower iridescent type beads are added for more color.
And, next the fish. Here is the large one...
And the small one...
The fish are brass charms, and while I often ink these type of charms...this time, I painted them...with fingernail polish! The feather stitching has been adorned with multiple seed beads in three different colors.
