Seagrass

My fabric supply is neverending. I opened one of the boxes yesterday looking for a particular piece of fabric and I found this selection that I had put aside last year, and forgotten about. I think I had originally intented to use them for beads because the pieces are rather small but my new fragments tecnique is perfect for using them for an art piece.


I laid them out from light to dark in the order that I would like to stitch them.

Seagrasses are flowering plants (angiosperms) which grow in marine environments. There are 60 species of fully marine seagrasses which belong to four families (Posidoniaceae, Zosteraceae, Hydrocharitaceae and Cymodoceaceae), all in the order Alismatales (in the class of monocotyledons) Seagrasses evolved from terrestrial plants which migrated back into the ocean about 75 to 100 million years ago


Seagrass meadows also provide physical habitat in areas that would otherwise be bare of any vegetation. Due to this three dimensional structure in the water column, many species occupy seagrass habitats for shelter and foraging. It is estimated that 17 species of coral reef fish spend their entire juvenile life stage solely on seagrass flats.

It is the pool of life, the cup of imagination, and she has an idea that different people see different versions of it, but with two things ever in common: it's always about a mile deep in the Fairy Forest, and it's always..."
