    Left Over Fish

    I had some left over fish from an appliqued quilt. I decided to add a few new ones, maybe a fishing pole and reel. Have more left over weeds to add in and some fishy background fabric. Should have it together in a week or so. Will call it The Fishing Hole!

    I love your fish, and they are not at all as stinky as your post title implies ;-)

    You have some beautiful fish there - not at all "left-over" - I have to admit I was a little worried about what kind of story you were going to tell. It will be so much fun to see a picture of both quilts - I always like to see what people do with "left-overs".

    I had to open it because last night my daughter opened our spare freezer and pulled a white package out of it and complained about its "fishy" smell. I laughed because before I came home from Sisters (after the quilt show) she asked me to bring home some extra big ice pops from the little store at the Metolius. They were her favorite last year and she can't find the big ones here in town. The lady knew I would be transporting them and since they were already frozen, she took two of their white bags and wrapped them up in it. Samantha had completely forgotten she asked me to bring them home and thought the bags had fish in them - long, narrow, bags looked like freezer paper - I had to laugh at her!

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Agreed! I like them. Make sure to post a pic of the finished quilt (with a reminder of this post for those of us who will promptly forget and then be confused)

    You did a wonderful job on your fish! I love them. I think It is looking more and more like an aquarium. Maybe you could add some other aquarium things to it. You've got a great start going there!

    IMHO I think a fishing pole would detract from the beautiful fish you have. May be just call it the fish pond or the aquarium and let the fish live a peaceful life in their watery home. It is beautiful. I love the rocky bottom. and fish fabrics. Colors a re great.
