Shiny happy Slender Snipe Eel

Returning to my sneaky stitching roots I found myself and my trusty camera amongst the bones and the beasts of London’s Natural History Museum hunting stitched sealife in its historic hallways.

I was wholly responsible for bringing to life an achingly smiley Slender Snipe Eel.

He was skinny. He was sparky. He was sitting on the picked-clean carcass of a long-dead whale.

Wheeeeeeeeee! Carcass climbing frame!

I have rarely felt so proud.
