The first coral is framed!

After a long time I did something different. No quilting, no patchwork.


Freehand machine embroidery


This Sea Star Coral is freehand machine embroidered.



2011 I was with my partner for 9 months sailing in the Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and Australia. We visited Fiji, Vanuatu, The Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea before we reached Australia. We cruised the Australian coast and then returned home via Lord Howe Island.

On this trip we snorkeled nearly daily and with an underwater camera I took lots of photos. Now I start to reflect on some of the pictures I collected.
