Treasures of the Sea

Wow, it has been a long time since I have posted. Glad to say good-by to 2009, it was a sad, sad year.

Came to Panama City Beach, Florida the day after Christmas. It has been cold but beautiful, lots of walks on the beach and sitting to watch the waves, the seagulls and the sunsets.

I brought some fabric, yarn and beads along in case I wanted to make something, and have found lots of great shells on my walks. One morning I even found a tiny, perfect sand dollar, just laying at the edge of the water.

So I created this piece, it is approximately 8 inches in diameter. It features a beautiful raku button from Lisa Peters Art.
