BIG Fish


Another finish for the Fobbles exhibition next month, this time its Big Fish by CHS, - though why its called that I haven't a clue cos really he is just a minnow fish, he's not even as long as my hand and I stitched him on 30ct linen, using the recommended DMC threads to make him a little bigger, I decided to make him into a little pincushion, its such a cutey and I've christened him Fred!!.

Thanks for all your nice comments about my last couple of finishes I do appreciate them and that you made the time to leave them for me, comments are so encouraging and definitley brighten up my day and it was so interesting to see which of the flip flops you all preferred I do believe that most of you liked the seahorse one the best.

I've made a start on the SB 2010 scissor fob and its coming up a treat, though I have changed the linen fabric - the linen that came with the kit was just toooooo dull for this pretty design and the scissors.

I thought I would leave you with a picture of my Oriental poppies that have just popped open today, there are many more to come, but these are the first 2 of this year.

Poppies are just opening here too. Saw some field poppies on my way to work - delicate and fragile and yet so tenacious.
Love Fred - he looks really cheerful and friendly!

Good Morning, have been away from the blogging world and I sat down to catch up with you.

First, your garden is just lovely and your home pictures are wonderful and I am glad to hear that you are feeling good about yourself. Excited to hear that your driving test will be soon, YEAH!!

Your stitching as always is lovely, the flip flops are so cute.

How sad for your community to be suffering such sorrow - life sure can be unpredictable and sad.

Have a better week -- Roberta

This "Big" fish isn't maybe very big, but very beautiful.

The pink poppies are lovely, too.

Hi Fred - want to be on my plate? - eh - I mean sideboard! Sorry Su - Fred looks so delicious I got carried away!

Good luck for your driving test. Poor Jack (Kirby's younger brother) failed his theory test a couple of weeks back but is re-sitting it next week - fingers crossed!
