Have you ever had a fabric in your stash that you love so much that your scared to use it? The goldfish fabric above is that one for me. I bought it back in October from a quilt shop I don't normally frequent. And I LOVE it. So much so that I had to remind myself it wasn't doing any good sitting on a shelf, and if I never used it my children would eventually sell it at a yard sale after I was to old to sew. So this has been my playtime for this week, making a small wall hanging with my favoritist fabric. No pattern on this one, I just really wanted to feature the cute gold fish. So I have been adding bits and pieces as I go around the center 3 blocks with fish. On the left panel, the small blue circles have fishy skeletons on them and I did some beading around them last night. (Note to self don't bead before the quilt top is finished no matter how excited over it you are).
And I wanted to say thank you to Daffycat for the email letting me know the issue with my comments. I was pretty oblivious and had read other peoples post about the recent blogger issues thinking to myself the whole time I was lucky I hadn't had any issues yet. So hopefully now my comments will be fixed if you care to leave one. And hopefully someone will have the answer to my "over one" question from my last post. (Maybe the universe was trying to tell me I was not meant to stitch something so detailed and to stick with the simple and cute.)
