Something Fishy

Thankfully the day is brighter today which will help me to see my stitches more. Ive decided to experiment with embroidering fishes on metallic netting. In the front I have placed some watersoluable film with the shape and design to show me where the fishes need stitching.
This is totally an experiment so I still don't know whether these little Nemos will work out or not.
I have done a similar experiment to this before with some butterflies last year. I have found some scraps of fabric to do some applique starfish. I will keep you all updated whether these fish make it to the big sea.
The cats and the nine patch blocks are in the post now flying on their way to America, I cant wait to get the other blocks. I hope everyone else will have happy quilting times today and the next few days.

I'm still sick with the flu, but couldn't resist poking my head in for a visit!
This mini quilt already looked so amazing without anything added! But it looks like you will have outdone yourself again with the wonderful extra touches of yours! Very cute "nemos"!

Hi Faith,

Lovely work and those fish are just beautiful.
I know what you are saying about needing good light when you are doing your work. I was sewing button holes on black the other night and it was just so hard.
I wonder if you have ever used gold wire thread? I am thinking of getting some of this to try out some buillion work..
