Hello Fishy Fishy !!

This is going to be my March/ April submission for the Pincushion Challenge. The theme is Underwater/ The Sea and hence my little fishy!! I am really pleased with this and Sophie likes it because it sparkles. It is made of felt and decorated with beads and sequins with hand embroidery. The back is yellow and decorated with a single sequin.

I would like to thank some new visitors who have left comments on indigo blue. It is much appreciated and I do try and reply, but I am having problems linking to Linda, so Hello Linda from me!
Last school day tomorrow and guess what. The builders can start sooner, yes that's right, next Tuesday during my precious Easter holiday! Can not grumble too much as due to a variety of reasons we have been waiting for over a year to have the conversion sorted out. So my other half will sent to take on-going photos which I will post here. Thought it might be intersting as I have never seen a conversion taking place, only when it is actually finished.

Sewing group tomorrow night, Sophie is coming as well to supervise the next stage of her quilt.
Have fun!

Good luck with the builders, I'm sure it will be worht it in the end. Just think of all that extra storage space you'll have...(more fabric stash).

The fish looks great. I like working with felt its so easy.
