Something fishy . . .

Something fishy going on in our garage this week.  It all started when youngest came home from school and declared he was going out to the garage to make something - Oh heck!!.  "Was there anything I'd like made out of wood?" he asked.  Well, what an offer - quick as a flash I said, Yes! - make me a fish!  As you do :) -

I'm thinking little carved fishy, rustic style, hole for hanging with some 'hairy' string (you know the kind I mean!), decorated with some 'tweedy' scraps - it's all a bit experimental - but you get the idea :)  

Ta Dah! . . . Little Fishy! . . .  (with a little help from his Dad!)


(Ooooops, this shot was taken before the hole was drilled for hanging - just use your imagination though! :))

P.S.  This was just a fun little idea for craft fairs -  I've just put my name down on a waiting list so hopefully I'll manage to do ONE at least over the Summer - fingers crossed!

With the possibility of a craft fair on the horizon, I've been doing a whole lot of crafting again this week, here's a little snippet of one piece (more hand embroidery going on) . . .


And a lovely golden evening this last week . . .


I don't know about the rest of the UK but it's been beautiful up in the Hebrides :)

Later, gaters!

Love the evening pic Alison, it's just gorgeous.....
All the best for the craft fair, they certainly keep you busy stitching away. I hope it goes ahead for you.
A rustic style fish sounds like a great project for your son. Fish today and ? tomorrow, this could be the start of something.
