Ocean of Wisdom II

Ocean of Wisdom II on silk gauze

Ocean of Wisdom II

I love these wee bits of ocean wisdom and they are wonderful assembled into the collage shown here on silk gauze - or individually for the perfect bowl fillers! I used Weeks Dye Works cottons and a bit of DMC throughout. That hornbook is spot on as it reminds me of the whale’s tail! Notes on finishing that and the smalls are included too.

A note regarding the silk gauze piece - the model was stitched on 40 count; your chartpak will include a cut of 35 count. Your finished stitching will still fit on that hornbook, but will be a more close fit.

Have a look at the original Ocean of Wisdom.
