1, 2, 3, 4, 5, once I caught a fish aliv.... er....hmm

We came home today from a lovely weekend down in South Devon with our parents and friends, only to find that one of our new fishy family members had sadly come to an early demise.

We are now down to four little zebra danios, hope they're not mourning their little brother too much!

Speaking of fish, I've been embroidering the crazy patchwork that I started a few weeks ago. Not having done a lot of embroidery before, I'm finding it very therapeutic!

Only a quick post today as we've just got back and I'm ready to catch a few z's!

I'll leave you with this photo of three of the four remaining fish!


Today I'm sharing this post over at Handmade Harbour.

I love the look of the crazy patchwork - will we see the whole thing?

Lovely little fishies both on the quilt and in your tank.

I do like the crazy patchwork, and especially the little embroidered fish. What are you going to do with it?

I hope so Natalie! I'm making slow progress at the moment as I keep leaving it and coming back to it. Hopefully soon it'll be finished!

I'd like to mount and frame it for the wall once I've finished. It may be a while though as I only pick it up when I've got a spare moment!

Beautiful stitching and colours. The fish is so cute. I really like the water like border. Can't wait to see it finished! You are multi-talented!
