Marsha writes: I began this piece with the creation of the peyote spacer bars, which looked like squid to me when fringed. The "spilled ink on parchment" look of the lovely focal, added to the squid image, led to the name. Techniques include peyote stitch, flat circular peyote stitch, fringe, and Russian spiral weave.
