Fed up with this

Been a bit quiet on the blogging front as I've been frantically trying to finish my NCFE Creative Textiles coursework - a 1m x 1.2m wall hanging of the Great Barrier Reef. I only have nine weeks to get it finished. If I never sew on another bead, it'll be too soon. The pics below speak for themselves (apols for the poor photo quality - taken on my mobile as I still haven't mastered the new camera).

This is a photo of one of the pieces of coral that I'm trying to recreate:-

And this is what my attempt currently looks like - half finished:-

and in detail:-

And this is my recreation of a giant clam:-

And detail:-

Only about another 4000 beads to go ......
