One Fish, Two Fish......
My husband wanted fish, not the kind you eat with chips or tartar sauce, but pictures of fish to hang on the wall of his bathroom. As I am absolutely hopeless with drawing and painting, I did the next best thing, I appliqued him two pictures.The nice thing about doing an applique picture is, you don't have to be to tidy when it comes to the back of the piece as everything will be hidden in the frame.
I found these two patterns at our local quilt store and had them finished in no time. It is a really good way to use up very small pieces of fabric that you would otherwise throw away.On the roof of our home we have a lovely weather vane, a gift from my husbands mother, it fits so beautifully with our white house with black shutters, during the winter winds it gets quite a workout!A good indication that our seasons will soon be changing are these little goldfinches, they are not so bright yellow any more, they have now gone a pretty drab color, but they are still lovely. Every year when I see them change color I know that fall isn't to far away.Although I see changes already happening in my garden I still have my beautiful lillies to enjoy.
