Thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions for the last piece. As usual the problem is that there too many possibilities. I didn't get a chance to get to the studio to work, as a wind storm knocked out our power. The fabrics are hand painted.
Hand sewing was the thing to do, so I finished the shell piece which I'd machine quilted and put the binding on last week.

Here is a closeup of the main shells which are hand stitched in needlelace with a detached buttonhole as an edging. Painted cheesecloth is behind the stitching.

beautiful Sandy! Love the dimensional texture of the shells.

What is that stitch? It is so lovely and lacy.

Beautiful work as usual!
