Wedding Gift for one of Gerry's friends

So Gerry wanted something for his friend getting married, last year, and their wedding invite was paua shell on black so here i go........His friend goes Paua diving and fishing a lot so I used the fish hook design and drew one out, then decided to do 2 because there will be two people in this union right, with me so far, then entwined them one taking care of the other. i was quite wrapped.
Beginnings of an idea

Real Paua Shell Sewn On
Finished Item
quilting and outlines sewn.

and then a bad photo of the whole lot.
Unfortunately it has already been given to them and i didn't get a change to do a better photo, also I don't think they liked it because we haven't heard from them since and it was a while ago. oh dear. I guess sometimes our idea of what looks nice and a bit arty might not be someone else's idea.
Going back to soap again in February :-)
