I just found your blog--and I think your embroideries are fabulous. I especially like the Encrustations 1 & 2. Do you glue the shells to the canvas? I live near the shore and collect shells--just 'cause they are pretty--but they become so lovely in the embroidery...Julierose

Your rock pool is amazing! Woukd you pls help me identify sone stitches ? In particular, the sea anemone- is that the cup stitch or are those cast on stitches that you just formed into circular/triangular shapes?
