    This all started when I was sitting down at my dad's (who is 84) and realized how much cleaning really had to be done! So two days later Igot my family involved in repainting the whole house and putting new flooring down. Blinds and curtains replaced and old pictures taken down. Done!!! now since I had taken some things off the wall that were falling apart I had to put some things up! I went and made a fish wall hanging!
    My dad was a avid fisherman and hunter so this fits his new decor nicely

    Love it - both how you took charge of tidying your fathers house and the decoration contribution. I'm sure he's very grateful.

    Did you use a pattern or just wing it? It's really got a lot of charm.

    How sweet. What a great family effort for a loving parent who no doubt could not have done it himself.
