While wandering through the Gathering Place at the Bead&Button show I met Ralonda Patterson who was stitching art dolls. Then I noticed these amazing fish she had designed. I was hooked. I rarely buy kits but I just had to have one. Talk about texture, I loved the little dagger fins and tails. She captured fish scales with her beads and sculpted the fish by varying the size of her beads. Check out Ralonda's Blog.
